The ART of Resiliency: Thriving in a Demanding World

What and Why: Nearly everyone today is impacted by stress in a significant way. Stress can have a negative impact on health, relationships, and work performance. Many stress programs focus on stress reduction and relaxation; however, this is probably not sufficient considering the world of high demand and constant pressure we are constantly facing. This program focuses on the science of resiliency and offers practical strategies for employees to respond in more positive and productive ways to challenging environments at work and at home. The 6 principles explored in this session will inspire, empower, and enable employees to Adjust, Recover, and Toughen to people and situations and 1. Allow them to leverage stress for positive outcomes, 2. Reduce negative stress responses that sabotage them at work and home, and 3. Become more resilient to thrive in every aspect of their lives.

How: This session uses a combination of presentation with participant discussion, activities, application, and sharing.

Who: This session is best for employees, teams, and groups who work under demand, pressure, and deadlines who are at risk for burnout, turnover, health issues, productivity impacts, or disengagement due to stress or feeling overwhelmed.

The Business of You: Enhancing Personal Wellness by Leveraging Business Principles

What and Why: In many ways, our lives are not much different than a business. In running a successful business for a long period of time, many activities and decisions are carefully considered. One bad decision, the inability to adapt quickly, not resourcing or budgeting strategically losing sight of the big picture, making results the only thing that matters, or not getting the vision right can hurt or ruin a business. The same is true for us in our lives. In the quest to live a healthy and vibrant life, many decisions will need to be made daily. Often, we become overwhelmed with the competing priorities and inundation of information about living a healthy life. Applying business principles to our lives can help us to strategize and align what we do with what we want. Remember, the business of your life will be the most important business you will ever run!

How: This session uses a combination of presentation with participant discussion, activities, application, and sharing. Business examples will be used to introduce each of the principles and then participants will apply the business principle in their own lives.

Who: This session is best for employees, teams, and groups who understand basic business principles and would find it interesting to approach wellness through a business lens instead of the traditional wellness approach. 

Thriving at Work and Home: Five Solutions to Reduce Financial Strain

What and Why: Achieving optimal performance in personal, professional, and financial life is difficult for many caught up in the daily stresses of life. When you understand why as well as how people change behaviors, you must look at the whole person. It becomes apparent that financial strain in any form hinders people’s ability to thrive in life. Psychologically, financial stress results in a heavy cognitive load, which in turn can increase errors and lead to poor decision-making at work and at home. This program focuses on the latest research and science of behavioral economics that actually helps participants make small manageable changes that lead to financial wellness. Succeeding in the financial realm can enhance relationships at home and will help lighten participants cognitive load, allowing them to focus better at work, worry less about home, and put themselves in a position to succeed and advance in their career.  Participants will leave with additional tools and strategies that empower them to thrive at work and at home in their financial lives. 

How: This session uses a combination of presentation, activities, application, participant discussion and sharing.

Who: This session is best for employees, teams, and groups who desire to gain control of their financial lives.  Employees who experience financial strain, have uncertain career futures, or struggle with planning their financial future would benefit from this session.   

You Are What You Think: Creating a Mindset of Wellness

What and Why: There is more wellness information available than ever, but does that translate to better behaviors? The Knowing-Doing Gap is when we know what we need to do, but we don’t do it. Studies are revealing that providing more information on nutrition/exercise/stress does not necessarily translate to long-lasting change and results. Many interventions focus on changing our behaviors, but these behaviors are an extension of our underlying mindset, or how we think. This session will outline factors that can sabotage our best wellness intentions and provide strategies to change a mindset to one that enables positive behaviors. This session provides linkages between the science of wellness, behavioral science, and neuroscience.

How: This session uses a combination of presentation with participant discussion, activities, application, and sharing. For each of the barriers and strategies related to mindset, specific examples in wellness will be provided and then participants will choose their own for activities.

Who: This session is best for employees, teams, and groups who have had previous experiences with wellness programs and initiatives, but have struggled to make long-lasting change. It is also for organizations that already have wellness programs in place and would like to see higher levels of success with personal change efforts.
