New leadership principle - 7 rules for health leadership

New leadership principle - 7 rules for health leadership

13 mai 2020 · Dettling's Column

In post-corona times, physical health and mental fitness are becoming increasingly important in corporate health management. Health leadership is therefore becoming a trend and is replacing personal responsibility as a central health goal for one's own well-being.

Particularly during the weeks of home office and in the context of social distaningc, it has become clear that health leadership is essential. Without managers who exemplify a healthy work culture, no company health measure will be effective. In addition to physical fitness, mental health plays an increasingly important role. Stress, overwork and burn-out have now become frequent – mental illness is one of the most common reasons for early retirement due to disability. On the other hand, many employees tend to show up for work despite illness. This behavior does not only have  a negative impact on both their own and their colleagues’ health, for example in the event of a flu or a severe cold, but also leaves economic traces. Studies show that the costs of so-called presenteeism far exceed the costs of sick leave – not least because of prolonged exhaustion, chronic complaints and infection of employees.

Health Leadership means:

  1. value exemplary behaviour
  2. appreciate the performance of each individual employee
  3. establish flexible structures that promote creativity and self-efficacy, but also protect against overwork and self-exploitation
  4. promote teamwork and avoid excessive demands, because pressure negatively affects performance in the work place
  5. create a scope for action, for example in the form of self-determined work
  6. create a positive team spirit and emphasize interdisciplinarity to promote a positive climate
  7. work transparently, i.e. formulate goals and visions and allow employees to participate in the company’s activities.

Why Corona is becoming a booster for more equality - Is Corona putting the brakes on equality in the workforce? Corona would set back gender equality, by 30 years. Many women complained at the start of the pandemic. The new division of labor suddenly became the old one: Women stand at the hearth and supervise homework, men do video conferencing and tinker with their careers. For women, home office means "lots of home and little office."

What is the price tag on the world?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the world's most powerful climate change movement, an alliance of more than 370 major financial services firms representing $41 trillion in green investment assets. This is nothing however, compared to the wealth that an intact environment represents. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates the value of services provided by nature in the form of functioning ecosystems at about $90 trillion. That is roughly the entire current global economic output. A new study by the German Nature Conservation Union and the Boston Consulting Group estimates that the monetary value of biodiversity is twice as high. This does not even include values such as recreation, well-being and enjoyment.
