105 ~ Jennifer Fisher “Have courage to do less.”

February 21, 2019

  • "We tend to believe that self care is selfish and we need to change this paradigm."
  • "I got into this situation where I wasn’t listening to my body and mind."
  • "It was like a bomb went off."
  • "It has given me a platform to help other people get through something unexpected."

"Have courage to do less."
~ Jennifer Fisher

My amazing guest today is a walking testimonial that when you have a passion backed by purpose, you break down everything to make it happen! Jennifer Fisher, National Managing Director for Well-being at Deloitte, empowers Deloitte’s people to prioritize their well-being so they can be at their best in both their professional and personal lives. Jen also leads Deloitte’s Inclusion Center of Excellence.

Prior to becoming the National Managing Director of Well-being at Deloitte, Jen had always been a driven professional often overlooked the boundaries needed in her life… “We live in this go, go, go world and we are starting to see the negative impact of not disconnecting.” As she was moving toward her own burnout, Jen reveals the one person who gave her permission to pause and change her career path.

In spearheading this new environment of how well-being would look at Deloitte, Jen found that, “My definition of ‘well-being’ was narrow.” Find out the life-altering news Jen received and how this experience transformed the definition of her career and her life, forever.

As a result of Jen’s journey, not only is she leading Deloitte’s well-being culture, she is also a regular contributor to Thrive Global, author of various Deloitte Insights reports, and hosts WorkWell, a podcast series on the latest work-life trends. In having the great privilege of serving Deloitte for years as well as one of my favorite clients, I have witnessed first-hand how Jennifer’s spirit for well-being has manifested company-wide with all the passion and conviction of a true thriver!
