Steven P. MacGregor grew up in Motherwell in the 1980s, an industrial heartland in Western Scotland that was devastated by a mixture of politics and globalization. Pursuing a PhD in Glasgow that took him to Stanford and Carnegie-Mellon, followed by teaching at IESE in Barcelona, IMD in Lausanne and CEIBS in Shanghai, he has helped improve the health and wellbeing of more than 20,000 managers worldwide through his Sustaining Executive Performance program. He is the founder of The Leadership Academy of Barcelona with recent clients including McKinsey, Salesforce and Santander.



Rory Simpson, a Scot, had parents who were polar explorers and this led to a unique childhood spending summers living with the Inuit in Greenland and Canada and later kayaking and climbing in Alaska, Finland, Norway, Nepal and throughout South America. This experience gave him keen insights for leadership that were honed from an early age. Rory is currently the Chief Learning Officer at Telefónica, and formerly Associate Dean of London Business School. In the last year he delivered leadership seminars in over 25 countries from China to Iran and Chile.


Rising levels of life expectancy and literacy and falling levels of poverty and disease make this objectively one of the best times to be alive – we have never had it so good. Yet at the individual level, many seem to have lost touch with what it takes to make us happy. This book unpacks the recipe for happiness, to best leverage our unique qualities in an increasingly AI world. It gives the reader a valuable yet simple toolkit for building good habits and getting rid of bad habits, in pursuit of wellbeing.

Dr. Liz Mellon, Chair of Editorial Board, Dialogue, Duke Corporate Education

Good health is a critical factor for the performance of our footballers, basketball players and other sportsmen and women. Yet wellbeing is what distinguishes the good teams from the great. We are continually engaged with our athletes to give them the best chance of thriving in a highly pressured environment and I see many parallels with what MacGregor and Simpson have brought together for the business world. This is a timely and indispensable guide for health, wellbeing and performance in today’s world.

Dr. Gil Rodas, Medical Doctor, FC Barcelona

If you care about improving your own wellbeing and that of your people, this is the book for you! Steven MacGregor and Rory Simpson present a bold vision and practical ideas for increasing the ROI of wellbeing into every organization.

Professor Gretchen Spreitzer, Professor of Management and Organizations, Michigan Ross School of Business
