The health of a company is dependent on the health of its people. It is the sickness of the west that we overwork ourselves and each other. We must guide each other back to a sustainable balance between purpose, play and rest. If those of us in positions of leadership can put as much care into supporting the health of our people as we do in supporting their growth and education, we will equip them with a perspective and skills that can endure anything.
