Wisdom Works professional services helped drive a multi-year effort empowering the top 150 senior leaders of The Coca-Cola Company to reimagine the organization’s mission and vision for greater positive impact in the more than 200 countries where it operates. This resulted in the company shifting from a profit-centric organization to a 6-P framework (People, Partners, Portfolio, Productivity, Planet, Profit) – an inspired roadmap to guide its business direction, allocate financial resources, enhance the employee experience, broaden its brand portfolio and marketing, and focus its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) partnerships and initiatives. The effort also set the stage for the company’s decades-long commitments to socially responsible innovations in product ingredients, sustainable packaging, climate protection, water stewardship, human rights, women’s empowerment, and education in communities worldwide.


While U.S. education leadership experienced mounting mental and physical health issues, significant equity gaps, and the lowest morale on record, the Principal Impact Collaborative (PIC), an innovative two-year fellowship for principals, elevated leader impact through a focus on wellbeing. Using Be Well Lead Well Pulse®, PIC principals holistically examined their wellbeing leadership, improved personal vitality, and developed new skills for role modeling, communicating, and building a culture of thriving in their school systems. The results? 75% lessened their work-related stress, while burnout climbed for other education leaders. 81% reported likely to remain in their leadership roles, at a time of high turnover among principals across the nation (every 2.5 years on average). Plus, 66% of staff on PIC-led campuses said their leaders fostered a culture of positivity and resilience.

A large home improvement retailer incorporated Be Well Lead Well Pulse® into the company’s development of high potential leaders, middle managers, and supervisors. Leaders were empowered to explore their capacity to thrive through small leadership circles and personal reflection. Participating leaders reported that insights from this pioneering wellbeing leadership assessment enabled them to: 1) understand what it means to thrive personally and professionally, 2) identify how their stressors are positively and negatively impacting their life and work, 3) unplug from work to effectively recharge, 4) achieve better balance with competing life priorities, and 5) promote wellbeing for the teams and people they lead.


Wisdom Works delivered a bespoke 9-month transformational development program to reinvent the Innovation team of a global beverage company. The program galvanized two instrumental shifts in this leadership team. The team: 1) reinvented itself from its traditional order-taker mode into truly leading strategic innovation and value for the company, and 2) redesigned its fragmented, regional focus into collaborative, global action. The integration of wellbeing principles and practices was pivotal in this program, resulting in positive biometric and psychological indicators for these leaders, as examples: lower blood pressure, lower body fat, higher levels of HDL cholesterol, healthier emotional regulation, the ability to rise above immediate crises with broader perspectives and a higher productivity of ideas, the use of transcendent values such as shared purpose and inspired vision to constructively deal with complexities, and prosocial skills for team thriving.
