Program Information

It takes a lot to step up and lead when you don’t have “formal authority.” It is risky, takes a lot of energy and takes time away from your to-do list. Is it worth it? You bet, and here is why:

  • Leading boosts meaning (Several studies show taking a more “Meaningful Orientation” at work is the #1 way to increase your energy at work)
  • Leading boosts collaboration (Several studies show taking a “Collaborative Orientation” at work is the #2 way to increase your energy at work)
  • Leading boosts learning (Several studies show taking a “Learners Orientation” at work is the #3 way to increase your energy at work)

Leading with or without a title is not only a win for your organization, it is a big win for you, your employees and your career. This program will outline the top 3, evidence based ways you can lead more, accomplish more and enjoy work more no matter what your title says.

Stress is a healthy living silent killer. Some facts:

  • Can cost an organization $7500 per worker, per year (if they make at least $25/hr)
  • Likely behind 9 out of 10 visits to primary care physicians
  • #1 cause of lower back pain
  • Acts as a reinforcement for the top 7 killers of both men and women
  • Makes life way harder than it should be

My job is to share what is really behind many of the problems facing your you and organization. Can you beat stress? You bet. Learning to Stress Right will enable you to:

  • Take four “must do” steps that turn stress into positive energy
  • Maximize your adrenaline, but manage it so you do not “hit the wall”
  • Significantly reduce the hormone that makes you want to strangle people
  • Plug in a pre-sleep ritual that makes you sleep like a log
  • Beat stress eating and other negative thought related patterns
  • Keep family and friends happy when you are busy
  • Learn new patterns to make healthy choices automatic

Today’s working culture can have you constantly running 90mph, hair on fire. Tomorrow will get faster. But there is good news. You yearn for more balance in your life, which is the solution to your “More.Faster.Better” dilemma. In Andy’s program, you will learn how to improve your work-life balance, productivity, health and your ability to stay motivated.

Regardless of what the future holds for healthcare, worksite wellness programs are and will continue to be critical to sustaining healthcare benefits, not to mention profitable companies. The big question is not, “Should I implement a worksite wellness program,” but rather:

  • What does it take to effectively and persuasively pitch wellness to your stake holders?
  • After you get the yes, how do you set up your program so that you maximize participation and ROI?
  • Then, after the honeymoon period is over, what must you do to ensure your program continues to grow versus experiencing a steady decline in participation and the slow, painful death experienced by most worksite wellness programs?

In this “dig in and get your hands dirty” workshop, wellness consultant Andy Core, M.S. will give you doable, tactical answers to those questions, plus insights into his experience with companies like Gillette, Wal-Mart, Unilever, Clorox, Coldwell Banker, the U.S. Army and many others.
