When it comes to leading wellness, as in our shared pursuit of a world free of preventable disease, being inclusive is perhaps one of our most powerful tools. An online search captures the spirit of the word: To INCLUDE means “to comprise as part of a whole” or “to make part of a whole.” Inclusive leaders do both. They help people and entire systems, from teams to communities, understand and connect with the ways they are already well, resourceful and resilient by nature. At the same time, inclusive leaders continually seek to uplift sidelined and disadvantaged voices so that our collective circle of concern widens and new potentials for wellbeing unfold.
When you embark on a bold dream, such as The Wellness Moonshot: A World Free of Preventable Disease, you activate hope. The dream isn’t achieved—and may not be realized in your lifetime—yet the sheer act of committing to it blossoms hope within you and others.
