Create More Energy & Build a Healthier, More Productive Workforce

When Your Workforce is Unhealthy and Tired, It Costs You Money. Let's Talk About How to Fix It

Our health is like the head of an octopus and the other facets of life are the tentacles. If the head isn’t operating optimally, the tentacles won’t perform optimally. With that said, one-third of the world is overweight, less than three percent of people are getting the weekly recommended 150 minutes of moderate exercise and one in three Americans gets fewer than the recommended minimum of seven hours of sleep nightly according to a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation survey which leads to 11.3 days of lost productivity per employee according to a 2011 American Insomnia Survey.

Combine these above factors and you're getting an lethargic, chronically sick, and overly-stressed workforce which is affecting your companies bottom line and performance. With all of this said, it's time to make wellness a top priority. Here are a few stats about wellness and the effect it has on companies.

  • Reduced sick leave absenteeism (an average 27 percent reduction according to the American Journal of Health Promotion)
  • Reduced healthcare costs (a 26 percent reduction in costs according to the American Journal of Health Promotion)
  • Improved productivity (an 8 percent increase in each employee’s productivity according to a 2005 National Business Group on Health report)
  • Less work-related stress (up to 12 percent less likely to experience health issues from work-related stress according to a 2015 study by The Economist Intelligence Unit & Humana)
  • Increased employee morale and engagement in your companies mission and goals (up to 67 percent according to a 2015 study by The Economist Intelligence Unit & Humana)
  • Improved employee retention (45 percent of employees agree that an employer-sponsored wellness program would encourage them to stay in their current position reported in a Principal Financial Well-Being Index in 2013)
  • A great return on investment (for every $1 spent = an ROI of $5.81 according to the American Journal of Health Promotion )
  • Employees with unhealthy diets were 66 percent more likely to report having a loss in productivity (BYU)
  • Sleep-deprived workers cost the U.S. around $411 billion, the U.K. $50 billion, & Australia $66 billion (Rand)
  • And much more!

Building a healthier company culture starts by building a solid foundation and educating everyone on the key principles and habits that lead to a healthier lifestyle—and that's where I come in.

With my guidance, you'll build a healthier and more productive company by strategically implementing various high ROI strategies that leave your workforce physically, emotionally, and mentally stronger so they can maximize their performance and impact.

1. Sleep Your Way to Success: How Sleep Supercharges Your Performance, Provides a Unfair Competitive Advantage, and Sets You Up For A Day of Success Tomorrow (and Beyond)

You most likely know that sleep is important. Yet, the average adult is sleeping 1.5 hours less than the average adult did 100 years ago. But, 100 years ago, we didn’t have the internet, bright lights around every corner & screen, nor demanding work & social environments. These aren’t going anywhere and life isn’t going to slow down to let you sleep.

Brigham and Women's Hospital Sleep Matters Initiative and the National Safety Council estimated using a fatigue calculator that an average sized Fortune 500 company consisting of approximately 52,000 employees spends $80 million on fatigue workers. It's time to change that.

In this training, you’ll be provided with tips and tools backed by science & research to help you optimize your sleep so you can level up in every aspect of your life.

Some of the many takeaways include:

— Why sleep should be the centerpiece of your life & the science behind it

— How sleep leads to a 10x improvement in all aspects of your life

— Actionable, simple, & scientifically backed routines to help you sleep better

— And much more...

3. The Fit Entrepreneurial Mindset: How to Supercharge Your Brain & Body For Peak Performance While Creating Winning Routines to Grow & Evolve At A Faster Pace in Life

An entrepreneurial mindset isn't just limited to CEO's and founders of startups. In fact, every ambitious professional who wants to make an impact and maximize their performance would benefit from this mindset. With that said, the journey to reaching the next level starts with you treating your health as an investment, not an expense. Think of your health as the head of an octopus and the other facets of your life as the tentacles. Without the head operating in its peak form, the tentacles won't reach their potential.

Hence, the fit entrepreneurial mindset is born. Some of the many takeaways include:

— Strategies to 10x your physical, emotional, and mental energy

— How to rewire your brain against stress

— How to create a growth-mindset that will boost your productivity
