In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Paul Boston about the concerns and progressions around corporate wellness. Mental health is an issue that is being spoken about more and more here in Canada and not only that, but corporate leaders are being proactive and doing all they can to keep their employees’ minds healthy, ready for change and of course becoming more productive. One of the most interesting items we discuss is the difference between work-life balance and work-life blending. Whether you are just entering the workforce, have been there for years or are actively climbing the corporate ladder, there are some really great takeaways that will help you excel in your life.

At the same time, he started racing at the elite level of triathlons and qualified four times for the World Triathlon Championships and started to discover performance similarities between his athletic and professional career. He then went back to school to study adult training and development, specializing in workplace performance. As an organizational performance development specialist, Paul works with clients to help them understand the fundamental performance values, attitudes and skills people, teams and organizations need in our ever-changing modern-day work world.
