Act as a positive role model for health and wellbeing
How to implement
- Enthusiastically support healthy behaviours and health promotion initiatives. For example, why not initiate a lunchtime walking group?
- Encourage high-profile leaders and community members to act as role models for healthy living (e.g., 'walk with the mayor' events, healthy taste testing with city managers, etc.).
The United Way of Calgary’s discussion paper 'Community Leadership Development' provides guidance and information on developing community and neighbourhood leaders.
