The Politics of Everything

Nov 1, 2022

Workplace wellbeing matters more than ever, as people from all sectors are making health-led decisions that are more valuable perhaps than power, money and status.

Having experienced her own life-changing burnout, Sally describes herself as a Burnout Survivor now Thriver, her own journey to recovery inspired her health coaching practice, Health that Heals. Sally McGrath has not one experience with burnout but three. She beat each round and remains so far.

Sally has a lifelong passion for health and wellbeing and has guided and supported individuals and teams to treat burnout and prevent burning out, sharing resources that empower the individual to identify what needs to change to reduce the risk of burnout. Sally also shares strategies that support "mental health hygiene", something that can be ignored when a person is experiencing the spiral into burnout. 

Sally has combined her 30-plus years of managing and training teams with her preventative health beliefs & expertise to deliver sustainable workplace wellbeing programs that engage and empower individuals. Sally also coaches burnt-out self-employed and professional women, to restore their joy, energy, and focus for work and life. Sally is a published author of the book Health that Heals, Transform Your Life Before It's Too Late and is a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, in New York.

Sally's joy comes from empowering individuals and teams to create what she terms "work and life in synergy".

We cover off:

  1. Burnout treatment and prevention is what you talk a lot about on social media and in your work. How much is burnout about our workplace vs our greater lives outside what we do for money?
  2. I like your email signature that says: Experiencing Burnout isn’t a reflection of your personal worthiness. It’s a culture that encourages people to put work ahead of their personal needs. What has been your experience with managing your wellbeing long term as a businesswoman?
  3. Workplace wellbeing has changed a lot over the years. Staff post-Covid restrictions, many seem to have empowered themselves more than ever – through quite quitting and resigning from workplaces they aren’t happy in or determining hybrid work arrangements before the boss offers them. How has that been facilitated do you think and will it last? Explain your view.
  4. What types of modern workplaces doing well overall when it comes to managing stress, fatigue, burnout and unhealthy habits, and are there a few examples of truly innovative workplaces that have made wellbeing #1 goal, and how. Must be more than leaving work early on a Friday or free yoga classes at lunch!
  5. Takeaway: What is your final takeaway message for us on The Politics of Workplace Wellbeing?
