Leadership & Wellness Resources
Marshall Rosenberg was an amazing leader who blended wellness and leadership remarkably.

A few of his Quotes:
*People heal from their pain when they have an authentic connection with another human being.
*Anger can be a wonderful wake up call to help you understand what you need and what you value.
*We can't win at somebody else's expense. We can only fully be satisfied when the other person's needs are fulfilled as well as our own.
*Peace requires something far more difficult than revenge or merely turning the other cheek; it requires empathizing with the fears and unmet needs that provide the impetus for people to attack each other. Being aware of those feelings and needs, people lose their desires to attack back because they see the human ignorance leading to those attacks. Instead, their goal becomes providing the empathic connection and education that will enable them to transcend their violence and engage in cooperative relationships.
Myers, Sweeney, Witmer, and Melvin (2000) defined wellness as, “A way of life oriented towards optimal health and well-being in which body, mind, and spirit are integrated by the individual to live life more fully within the human and natural community. Ideally, it is the optimum state of health and well-being that each individual is capable of achieving” (p. 252)
