A Leadership Development, Health, and Wellness Experience

The lives of most senior executives are more demanding and stressful now than at any point in history. Increasing regulation and oversight, stakeholder demands for profitability and accountability, and near constant communication has made the executive lifestyle intense and exhausting. There is little time to step back from the sprint pace and enjoy life. The result is leadership turnover and burnout, and a variety of health and personal challenges. 

The Integrative Leadership Program combines the world renowned health and wellness experiences of partner destination resorts Canyon Ranch and Miraval with innovative leadership development from Eller Executive Education to create a unique opportunity for reflection and renewal. The residential program for executives at one of the Tucson health resorts provides a transformative experience to empower executives to live longer, healthier, and more productive lives. Leadership insights can transform executives and their companies. Overall, this program provides a personalized and customizable experience for holistically integrating business and life for top executives.

  • Transformation change is possible in individuals and organizations when leaders help to remove barriers to change

The result is healthier executives, healthy role modeling for employees, and more effective and sustainable organizations.
