you know it shall be grasped.”

WHY EXTENDING CAN BE TRICKY
The energy behind EXTEND invites us to broaden, deepen, stretch and strive. When we extend with intention and the willingness to adapt and learn, we can also grow ourselves and the people and systems we lead. It’s common to extend too fast or too much and lose track of your wellbeing core. How can you extend your wellness leadership while cultivating, rather than losing, wellbeing? Curated by the Global Wellness Institute and Renee Moorefield, member of the GWI Advisory Board and CEO of Wisdom Works Group, this inspiring article explains how EXTEND taps into your potential as a wellness leader.
