Anita Heiss is in-conversation with Mel Kettle discussing Fully Connected – How great leaders prioritise themselves, reclaim their energy and find joy.

Are you feeling exhausted and overwhelmed?

Do you feel like you have no time for yourself?

Are you wondering how to regain your energy and find joy?

Being a leader today is hard. We are pulled in so many directions, with big responsibilities and many livelihoods reliant on us.

It may surprise you that our first responsibility is to care for ourselves. To make choices that are right for us, instead of right for others. With blurred boundaries between work and life, it can be difficult to find time for this. We’ve glorified being busy to become over-scheduled and over-committed and feel guilty about taking time for ourselves.

Fully Connected is for leaders who want to take back ownership of their lives and reclaim their health and energy. On their terms.

When you figure out what lights you up and how to say no to what doesn’t bring you joy, you become a better leader as you energise your co-workers, communicate with conviction and create a culture of belonging.

In these pages Mel Kettle shares practical, simple and actionable ideas for you to increase your self-awareness, understand what motivates you and prioritise self-care so you can become a fully connected leader.

At the heart of everything Mel does is a commitment to self-leadership. She has an overarching belief that we need to lead ourselves first before we can lead others.
