Whole Person | Whole Leader


Managing Self For A High Performing Team

Published on 3 Jul 2023

A near-death experience led me to rethink life. In search for an alternative to the fragmentation I experienced in trying to do it all, I interviewed leaders and examined the Eastern and Western ways of thinking. The result is this work on Wholeness.

Wholeness of a Leader | Wendy Tan
If you want to: 
  • Achieve and thrive in challenging times
  • Be more productive, successful and happier
  • Support your team toward sustained performance
  • Make an impact
But there are real challenges: 
  • The rapidly changing landscape  
  • Higher expectations from our customers and bosses 
  • The looming threats from competition
  • The never-ending treadmill of work
Amidst all these, we also have our responsibilities as a father, mother, son or daughter. 
So it’s natural to sometimes...
Experience exhaustion or a sense of fragmentation. 
This lowers our productivity and effectiveness.
In some cases, we suffer breakdowns in our health, relationships, and well-being.
We cannot be the best leader, the parent or child we want to be. 
This price to pay is too high. 
What if there is an alternative?

The antidote

to exhaustion is wholeheartedness.

David Whyte

I define Wholeness as a sense of completeness within ourselves and the world around us.

This work is about helping leaders and professionals find wholeness within themselves, their ways of thinking and being. In being whole ourselves, we create the conditions for our families, teams and organizations to be whole too.

This is a learning journey towards a
Whole Person | Whole Leader.

Learning Experience
Fees & Agenda​​
Participant's Perspective

You may be thinking . . .

  • “I am not that stressed.”

That’s awesome, but do you want to be more productive, effective and whole?Do you want to help your team members be more productive, effective and whole?
If your answer is 'yes', then this learning experience will help you do just that! 

  • Or you may be thinking, “I am too busy! I don’t have time!”

That is understandable. We are all busy and need to choose how we choose our time carefully.
Take this learning experience as a pit stop, step out from the whirlwind for a moment. You will regain clarity, energy and wisdom to be more impactful after. 

  • Or you might wonder, “What can a 1-day workshop do?”

That’s understandable. That is our concern too. So the one-day workshop sets the context and builds the connections for us to create habits and routines in our daily work lives to create sustained learning and application.

As the pace and intensity of modern life ratchet up, Wendy’s emphasis on wholeness is more important than ever.

Marshall Goldsmith
New York Times bestselling author and leadership thinker (2017)

I absolutely loved Wendy’s talk because I love this idea of wholeness and leadership. We don’t really think about it everyday, but we bring ourselves 100% at home and we do bring ourselves 100% at work and in any other projects that we are looking at. So it’s important to understand that it’s not a 50:50 balance but we give 100% everywhere. That’s why I thought Wendy’s talk is so powerful because when you think about it like that it makes your mind relax a bit, you don’t think that you’re not doing a good job in certain areas of your life, that you’re giving your best everywhere.
Magdalena Poulin

It was so compelling because of that personal experiences that she went through, but what really get to me is how she manifest that flow. So life is a flow, life is a journey, so as long as you’re able to embrace that, experience the journey, embrace the flow, I think there is never a static solution, you just have to go with it, and continue to balance, continue to go with where life brings you.
