“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”   Phil Jackson Posted by Justine Clarabut on 23 February, 2018

Putting on an event such as The Wellbeing Symposium, is no mean feat!  Months and months of planning accelerated to intense organisation and hard work in the weeks leading up to the event, for a quite a number of people!  The day arrives, we’re ready to go and all we can do is hope that delegates show up and most of all enjoy and gain benefit from attending this pioneering wellbeing event!  Hours of preparation are gone in what seems like a blink of an eye… but the rewards snowball, gaining strength as delegates make vital connections with other delegates, taking away essential wellbeing messages, life changing strategies and in some cases personal changes to achieve better health.

Working together cohesively, towards a common goal, using different skill sets and knowledge enhances team performance and produces a great outcome.  We can all find ourselves in situations where we are with someone we may not choose to be friends with but it is essential to recognise the contributions of others and what you or a group of people can gain from each individual.  Good teamwork creates synergy where the combined effect of the team is greater than that of individual efforts.

It may not be the right thing to sing our own praises but being proud of what we do I think should be shouted about!  The attention to detail and the pride shown from the Wellbeing People team was so evident at The Wellbeing Symposium, and was noticed by delegates, sponsors and partners;  from working tirelessly to make sure our products and services were in tip top condition through to simple helpful acts of kindness and thoughtfulness…

… quickly tidying up wiring to improve the appearance of the stand, wiping down the Health Kiosk screen during the speeches,  picking up someone’s coat which had fallen on the floor, approaching a delegate to offer assistance or plate up some lunch for a colleague who hadn’t yet had a break,  the list goes on and on – and it all made such a difference.

I know, that I am certainly proud to be a member of the Wellbeing People team and I truly believe that creating a positive working atmosphere and supporting each other to combine individual strengths is vital to achieve a happy positive workforce and in turn, is also very good for your wellbeing!
