People look for role models who are healthy, Dr Judy Olian tells Eve Ash. Leaders who are slaves to work, not having a personal life, are not whole. As role models, leaders legitimize everyone else’s behavior. This means leaders need a healthy family and work balance. It’s how you eat, exercise, sleep, because being physically healthy enables you to be mentally healthy and creative. Being a leader is a marathon, not a sprint!
