Ensuring personal and collective well-being is vital for successful individual and organisational growth. In a learning community, well-being is crucial on multiple levels. An individual’s sense or state of well-being impacts all relationships in the wider community. In an organisation of continued growth and change, the potential stressors that can destabilise must be recognised and understood by all members whatever their role. Strategies must be developed to support and maintain individual and collective well-being.
Burn-out, anxiety and general mental health issues are significant and regrettably growing features in many societies. These affect people of every background and age. Maintaining balance in a number of significant areas holds the key to overall well-being, and a learning community should regularly assess the general health of all of its key actors.
