Wellness Workshops and Employee Wellness Programs

Sharpen Your Saw - Add years to your life and life to your years
(1-2 hour workshop)
There are many obstacles to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Food marketing onslaughts, sedentary jobs, stress, and poor eating habits to name a few.

Drawing on Stephen Covey’s 7th Habit of Highly Effective People “Sharpen the Saw”, this activity-based (sometimes humorous) program helps employees perform better – both on and off the job. We provide information, experiential learning and coaching as people create the intrinsic motivation to stick with desired lifestyle changes.

Topics include: motivation, defining what you really want, nutrition, weight loss, Dr. Phil Maffetone’s Two Week Test & Carbohydrate Intolerance, life balance, and plenty of real-world stories.

Health Strategies
(4-12 week, 60-90 minutes per week)
A lively and highly-interactive workshop that informs and inspires lifestyle changes. Topics include: nutrition, weight loss, exercise, PSMART goal setting and achievement, life balance, emotional intelligence, disease-prevention and stress management. By defining what is most important to you, you connect with your personal motivation for lifestyle changes. Basic enough to inform and motivate people just beginning their wellness journeys, yet advanced enough that wellness gurus experience “ah-ha” moments. An excellent "core course" for employee wellness programs.

The five proven weight management ‘pillars’ used:
- Find your carbohydrate tolerance (based on Dr. Phil Maffetone’s work)
- Movement
- Measure progress
- Contract/commitment
- Four-way support

Weight is measured weekly along with resting heart rate. Participants also track their waist size. Workshop ratings have consistently been 4.5+ on a 5 point scale.

The Wellness Factor: Personal Benefits, Organizational Gains
(1 hour – full day)
For organizational leaders: Given our health care crisis, wellness and health promotion are hot topics these days. Join us to interactively explore topics including: health care problems and statistics, the benefits of worksite wellness for employees and you, emotional intelligence, and your personal wellness journey.
