Here we reboot the Chief Wellbeing Officer podcast, merging fully with our previous monthly column ‘MacGregor on Executive Health.’ Each month we’ll produce a 1000 word article, 30 minute podcast and 1 minute video in collaboration with The European Business Review. In this episode we look at SAPs new Happiness at Work initiative.
From the first content design in 2007 which gave rise to the formation of The LAB, to recording of the online course in 2013, publication of the English language hardback in 2014, and the Spanish language paperback in 2015, we are delighted to now release the audiobook of Sustaining Executive Performance to bring the story of SEP full circle. You can listen to Chapter 3 in its entirety on the Soundcloud link opposite and purchase from the links below.
I recently recorded a video summary for IE Business School on how Agility helps drive a more human workplace. Link to the video coming soon once published. In the meantime, I’m sharing the notes I produced to prepare here…
Design Your Life, a popular keynote of ours the past few years (premiered here) and which led to the current Design Vowels framework that can be found in the Chief Wellbeing Officer book, started off as Chapter 3 in Sustaining Executive Performance. There, I looked at the foundations of design, how it can be taught at MBA level, be used to re-design ones’ day for better health and wellbeing, and ultimately help build a better world. We’re currently producing the audiobook version of SEP and I thought it would be fitting to share this chapter now via the Soundcloud link below. Regardless of interest in health, wellbeing and performance, it might prove useful as an introduction to design, if you’re engaged in teaching design at MBA level, or if you simply want to dive a bit deeper if your own experience has been limited to sticking brightly coloured post-its on a wall ;)
We’re delighted to release Chief Wellbeing Officer as an Audiobook. Distributed on Amazon’s Audible platform you can get it for free with a trial subscription. It has a total running time of 6 hours 13 minutes and is narrated by the authors themselves. Check out the free sample on the links below and listen to Chapter 6 in its entirety on the Chief Wellbeing Officer podcast which follows.
With great sadness and deep gratitude we say goodbye to our Chief Barking Officer, Harry the Sheepdog. Since our foundation in November 2007 Harry has been a source of great inspiration, ensuring we never take ourselves too seriously and remembering the important things in life (in her case not only food, but mostly 😉). She participated in many programs and activities including mindfulness walks at Universitas Telefonica and was a summer resident at the Glasgow School of Art in the Scottish Highlands. Thousands of people from around the world have heard her stories in class, and thousands more have read them in our articles and books. She even appeared in a custom animation by the European Business Review. She had a wonderful life and a good death. What more can anyone ask.

Episode 12 of the Chief Wellbeing Officer podcast. As we approach the 1st year anniversary of the podcast we reflect on the 11 episodes to date before talking to Paul Hughes, senior faculty at the Center for Creative Leadership. With a background in Law, MBA and PhD Paul discusses how a deeper view of leadership is required today for effective leadership development, to reflect the changes that are happening in organisations worldwide.
The 26th and final ‘MacGregor on Executive Health’ article with The European Business Review, originally published here. Since September 2016 I’ve had the privilege of this platform to cover areas that I’m passionate about, and which I think are critical for business today. The 26 articles of the past 26 months will be produced soon as a free eBook. And we’ll be back soon with a re-boot…
The Chief Wellbeing Officer podcast returns after a long summer break with episode 11 featuring Jenny Campbell, CEO of Edinburgh-based Resilience Engine, and former alumni director for Scotland of IMD Business School. We talk about a new, more positive view of resilience, why it's less about hero leadership and more about team purpose, and what role lifelong learning plays.
