SESSION TOPIC

The One Strategy Missing in Most Wellness Programs – Inner Emotional Resiliency Training

Most wellness programs are designed to help employees maintain good physical health.  Which is wonderful!  However, that is only part of the equation to improve employee engagement and the success of wellness programs.  People have deeply ingrained inner emotional biases that prevent them from being able to be successful in many ways.  One of the strongest is “negativity bias”.  This is where inner emotional resiliency training can help employees when the bias they uncover becomes too hard to face without having the tools and strategies in place to help them through the tough stuff.

Participants who attend this track will learn how incorporating inner emotional resiliency training to their wellness program will help employees:

  • understand how to identify all their negativity biases,
  • learn strategies to overcome biases
  • help them engage and succeed in wellness programs,
  • respond to challenges with greater flexibility,
  • have the confidence to participate and stick with it,
  • perform their jobs more effectively,
  • and improve their overall health (mind, body, spirit)
