(based on his 2014 book release) For those seeking Work-Life Balance, Sustained Motivation, More Productivity, and the Art of Working Well
Stop for a moment and consider your average workday. Do you rush to get things done but still fall behind? Is the pressure of your work such that you “crash” when you get home? Do you want to exercise, but never have the time or the motivation to do so? Do you find yourself increasingly unhappy with your daily life and the struggle for more time? The very nature of modern life is hectic to an extent that could not have been imagined just a generation ago, leading to ever-present concerns over work-life balance.
“Change Your Day, Not Your Life” provides not only an overview of this reality, but the real-world mind-set and tools to make a change for the better. Andy Core helps hard-working, ambitious individuals increase their productivity and develop a positive work-life balance by sharing his secrets to achieving a healthy lifestyle, gaining more energy, and thriving at work through simple, realistic, and repeatable actions that you can incorporate into your everyday life.
The demands of today’s working world can easily leave you overly tired, overly stressed, and sometimes, less than enchanted with work. The problem and the paradox are this: hard working adults striving to grow often end up defaulting to daily life that is undermining their ability to stay motivated, energized and fully present. Andy Core will share with you the tips he has delivered to adults and organizations all over the U.S., Asia and Europe adding positive energy to their work, teams and personal lives. And he does so with a surprisingly simple premise – Change Your Day, Not Your Life.
What it takes to effectively pitch, implement and sustain a successful worksite wellness program
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” session, 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.
