Having over 15 years of experience working in the corporate world, I have first-hand knowledge of the culture, stress, and challenges of high-octane, high-performance environments. This understanding, along with my openness and sense of humor, puts employees at ease, allowing for a setting that nurtures honesty, curiosity, and trust.
Employees often want to make a change but are unsure where to begin. Using client-centered coaching, I hold each employee with unconditional positive regard and recognize that the true power for change rests with them. They just need assistance in finding the right motivation.
I offer several services, including but not limited to one-on-one Health Coaching with Employees, designing and administering health challenges, as well as lunch and learns and group fitness options either in-person or online.
I can work independently or collaboratively with your Human Resources team.
Motivational interviewing is a type of counseling that assists individuals in resolving conflicting feelings and uncertainties, enabling them to discover the deeper motivation necessary for behavioral change. This method is a practical, empathetic, approach that acknowledges the challenges associated with making significant life changes.
Stages of Change
The Transtheoretical Model (TTM) teaches us that change is possible, as it involves intentional decision-making and five distinct stages of progress:
Precontemplation - acknowledging the need for change.
Contemplation - serious consideration of the problem at hand.
Preparation - taking steps to make change happen.
Action - putting in the work to overcome the problem.
Maintenance - never giving up and continuing to work towards maintaining the gains made.
SMART goals require clear definition of all variables related to objectives. S.M.A.R.T. stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. Specific determines who, what, where, and why. Measurable tracks progress. Achievable ensures resources are available. Relevant connects to deeper motivations. Time-bound establishes a deadline with steps for success.
Let's Talk ROI
A group of Harvard researchers found that for every dollar spent on
wellness programs, employers save $3.27 on medical costs and $2.73 on absenteeism costs.
Does It Work?
According to The Journal of Occupational and Environmental
Medicine-“Do Workplace Health Promotion (Wellness) Programs
Work?” Although the evidence is still being compiled, workplace
wellness programs produce positive financial outcomes for employers.
