Having trouble relaxing on your summer vacation? You’re not alone. Two-thirds of Canadians work more than 45 hours a week. Of these individuals, only 23 percent are satisfied with their quality of life, which hinges on work-life balance. It’s also widely accepted that entrepreneurs and business owners work significantly more than the average worker – and that can negatively impact effective leadership and corporate culture when self-care isn’t a priority.

To be an effective leader, taking care of yourself, reducing stress and spending time on personal interest activities should be prioritized. In fact, these are traits that some of the top-earning business leaders share; they ensure their daily life consists of exercise, healthy eating, stress-reducing activities, passion projects and interests, and time with loved ones.

If you want to develop your leadership skills, these are things that you can’t afford to overlook – and that’s exactly why we’ve introduced components focused on self-care and hitting the refresh button into the first annual Executive Business Builder Retreat.
