With the BALANCE program, you will develop the vital leadership skill of striking and sustaining your individual balance. Embark on your very own learning journey supported by experts in physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. By learning to understand your own habits, personal motivators and any barriers you face, you will be able to implement and anchor new behaviors for long-lasting results.

The interactive nature of the program means that every participant will receive personalized guidance from our BALANCE facilitators. You will experience a safe environment to learn and grow, hold yourself (and others) accountable, and be fully supported to positively impact your health and well-being.

The BALANCE program is for you if:

  • You are a leader, entrepreneur, manager or employee who recognizes the importance of health and well-being – you want to take care of yourself, and those around you

  • You are perhaps struggling with the current demands of your role, or with the strains of the pandemic

  • You are finding it challenging to juggle your career with your personal life, or you just want to be ahead of the game

The program is also suitable for organizations who want to send teams or small groups. Please reach out to Justine Benson to discuss if special rates apply to you.

Meet Paul Elias



BALANCE is anchored in four key pillars. You will explore each of them at length, as well as understand their close connection and how they build upon each other:

Physical Balance

Is it... a balancing act?

Mental Balance

How does your brain influence your health?

Emotional Balance

How are you, really?

Spiritual Balance

Do you ever wonder... who you really are?

Physical Balance

Explore the many elements of developing and maintaining physical well-being and resilience. Learn how exercise, activity and movement can improve your energy levels, the importance of healthy nutritional and hydration habits, and crucial information around sleep patterns, effective rest and recovery.

Mental Balance

How does the brain affect thoughts and behavioral patterns? You will discover helpful tools and strategies to optimize mental focus, presence and mindfulness. This will help you to be better equipped to manage setbacks, build mental resilience and influence negative thought patterns.

Emotional Balance

Examine emotional triggers, how you can recognize stress factors effectively and how you can better manage emotional responses. Stress factors can include financial aspects, relationships, trauma and more. Also explore the limbic system of the brain, the causes and effects of stress, as well as strategies for you to manage emotion in the heat of the moment.

Spiritual Balance

Inquire into how you can gain energy from faith and spiritual connectedness. Clarity about your own values, principles, morals and beliefs can help you understand what is influencing your actions. You will discuss the terms “purpose and meaning” and how this has shaped your life so far.
