What is Executive Wellness Coaching

Executive Wellness Coaching is a specialized form of coaching designed to support the well-being and holistic development of high-level executives within organizations.


This type of coaching goes beyond traditional professional coaching by focusing on the unique challenges and demands faced by your executives in their roles.

The primary goal of executive wellness coaching is to help your executives achieve and maintain a state of optimal well-being, which in turn positively impacts their performance, leadership skills, and overall effectiveness within your company.

Hand Gesture

Dr. Walter Gaman explains in Corporate Wellness magazine…

“A company is a living – breathing being, with executives acting as the vital organs that keep it going.”

Here's why 40% of Fortune 500 businesses are investing in wellness coaching for their executives...

Work remains a significant obstacle to wellbeing

60% percent of employees, 64% of managers, and 75% of the C-suite are seriously considering quitting for a job that would better support their well-being. 


84% say that improving their well-being is a top priority this year, and 74% say it’s more important than advancing their career.

Employees are exhausted and overwhelmed

Around half of employees “always” or “often” feel exhausted (52%) or stressed (49%), and others report feeling overwhelmed (43%), irritable (34%), lonely (33%), depressed (32%), and even angry (27%).

It's the way of the future

85% of executives say they intend to become more responsible for workforce well-being over the next one to two years.

Collaborating with a wellness coach empowers executives with tailored strategies for resilience, productivity, and balance

Through tangible actions, executives exemplify that prioritizing well-being isn't just commendable – it's imperative.


This partnership instills a culture where individual health bolsters collective success, fostering a workforce that understands that nurturing oneself is the cornerstone of sustained achievement.

Executive Wellness Coaching can even boost your employee ROI

Healthier executives are more present and less burnt-out. This translates to increased productivity
and positive returns.

Offering an Executive Wellness Coaching Program is an attractive benefit to top-level employees and can immensely enhance both recruitment and retention of top talent at c-suite and senior levels.

Research by the World Economic Forum indicates that for every $1 invested in executive wellness coaching, there's an average return of $2.30 due to reduced healthcare costs.

  • Impact: A healthier executive team can lead to significant cost savings in healthcare expenses, benefiting the bottom line.

  • The American Institute of Stress reports that job-related stress costs U.S. companies over $300 billion annually.

    • Impact: Offering wellness programs with stress-reduction techniques and mental health support can lead to lower stress levels among executives, resulting in better mental well-being and overall performance.

The positive effects of Executive Wellness Coaching for your team extend beyond the coaching period

I did consider myself a "healthy eater" before working with Vesna, however Vesna has most definitely opened my eyes to the world of nutrition.


Vesna create a safe space to discuss all topics and has had a positive impact in my approach to nutrition.


Melinda M.
Vice President

Vesna is fantastic to work with! Similar to an athletic trainer where you get pushed to do one more rep, Vesna worked with me to identify the right goals and motivators and held me accountable on my health journey.


She's a great listener and super knowledgeable about nutrition.

Tammy J.
Executive Director

When I started meeting with Vesna, I was overwhelmed, focused on everyone else and not taking care of myself.

Vesna helped me sort through the swirl, capture my thoughts, prioritize me, and as a result, everything else seemed to fall into place.

My blood pressure even returned to normal!

I've learned so much...nutrition, exercise, meditation, mindful breathing, healthy recipes...

It's amazing what guidance from an incredible coach like Vesna will do for you!
