THE LMA

LEADERSHIP

SERIES

Personal Performance & Wellbeing

1 WIMPOLE STREET | THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF MEDICINE

THE LMA LEADERSHIP SERIES 2018/19

The second event in the LMA

Leadership Series 2018/19 took place

in March at the Royal Society of

Medicine, London. Hosted by Jeremy

Snape, founder of Sporting Edge

and a former international cricketer

and coach, the event focused on the

topic of Personal Performance and

Wellbeing.

World-leading high-altitude climber Kenton Cool opened

proceedings, giving a highly engaging presentation on Extreme

Leadership. Drawing on his personal experiences of climbing

mountains such as Everest, Cool talked about the importance

of preparation, the dangers of complacency and how to make

decisions when mistakes can be life-threatening.

Next up was Prof Nick Powdthavee, Professor of Behavioural

Science at Warwick Business School, who shared 10 important

lessons behavioural science can teach us about happiness.

Among these were finding job satisfaction and purpose and the

importance of ‘boss competence’, how well your boss can relate

to what you’re dealing with in your job.

Last to take to the stage were Nick Read, Managing Director

of the Vitality Programme, and Amanda Swann, Head of Vitality

at Work. Read gave an interesting insight into the values and

goals underlying Vitality’s business model and why education is

enshrined in everything they do. Meanwhile, Swann spoke about

inspiring positive behavioural change in workplaces, and helping

to build a healthier and more productive workforce.

Leadership & Management

“Most of us adapt

better to things we

do that turn out badly

than the things we

chose not to do at all”
