Leader Wellbeing Index℠
We research how the wellbeing of leaders impacts performance and innovation
As part of Abroad's CSR initiatives, Abroad’s team of psychologists, executive coaches, and venture capitalists just completed a 5-year landmark study on the mental and emotional health of 1,300+ leaders. We’re enlisting charter partners to champion Leader Wellbeing for the betterment of the global innovation ecosystem and humanity as a whole.
Below are some of the areas where we have either conducted research or are in the process of doing so.
Entrepreneurs & Business Owners
We conducted a global study to help entrepreneurs and business owners understand the sources of their mental and emotional health struggles.
New Zealand Early-Stage Innovation Ecosystem
New Zealand private and government organizations wanted to uncover how leaders in their early-stage innovation ecosystem compared to our global dataset.
In collaboration with leadership networks globally, we are researching the unique wellbeing challenges that corporate executives face behind the scenes.
Doctors & Physicians
We are working with networks of doctors to better understand the challenges they face running their practices while working directly with patients.
We provide insights and analytics to venture capital and private equity portfolios to help them unlock hidden potential and
mitigate risk within their portfolios.
As an impact-driven organization, we don’t have the hubris to think we
can make lasting, positive, systemic change alone.
Together, we can create a sustainable ripple in the fabric of our global society - changing it from a system that promotes stress, non-stop activity, and depletion to one that encourages liberation, inner discovery, and creative potential.
We’re rallying support from a global cooperative of mission-aligned partners to foster healthy innovation ecosystems and promote leader wellbeing.
These are courageous people who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to building small movements within their organizations, portfolio companies, and innovation ecosystems to champion leader wellbeing.

These are organizations that have made financial contributions to further wellbeing research and/or subsidize the development of young leaders who don't have the financial resources to access essential wellbeing wisdom.
These are individuals who are inviting their social and professional networks to participate in Abroad’s monthly Fireside Chats to learn about our research findings, and get inspired that a new reality is available to them as leaders.
