Leverage Precision Wellness & Performance to Elevate Your Organization's Leadership, Personal Performance, Well Being, and Bottom Line

When Your Team is Unhealthy, Stressed, and Fatigued—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.

Health and wellness allows an individual to move at a faster pace in life, have more energy, and ultimately operate in a peak performing state. When a individual understands and practices a healthier lifestyle, it positively impacts a company’s bottom line. The more this is integrated into an organization, the better every system and department flows which leads to better customer service and experiences.

With that said, there is some research to back up the connection between health and organizational performance.

  • 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)
  • For every employee, companies are losing $1,400 per employee due to fatigue according to a Sleep Matters Initiative at Brigham Health for the National Safety Council (NSC)
  • Gallup estimates 17.2% of the U.S. workforce is actively disengaged which costs an organization approximately $3,400 for every $10,000 of salary (or 34%)
  • Ineffective training and uninspiring content leading to skill gaps, disengagement, and employee turnover costs businesses a yearly loss of $13,500 per employee (McKinsey & Company, Gallup, Center for American Progress)

Building a healthier and higher performing company starts by building a strong foundation and educating your employees on the key principles and habits for optimum health and performance—and that's where we come in.

Human Performance & Health Optimization Trainings

I will customize my workshops and trainings to meet your organization’s specific needs. Here are some of my most requested topics.

Optimized & Enhanced

Growing older is inevitable, but the way we grow older is completely malleable. Just because your chronological age is rising doesn't mean your biological age has too. In this transformative and bold presentation, you'll be introduce to a new paradigm that will provide you with tools and tactics to becoming the most enhanced version of yourself without the guesswork.

Change Your Genes, Change Your Destiny

While your genetic code is incredibly important, it does not determine your…..destiny. The real power is the input from the environment, which provides the DNA with information that will ultimately determine your potential destiny. This is called the science of Epigenetics. In this highly actionable training, you'll be introduced to the fascinating science of Epigenetics along with learning some easily implementable actions and habits that will help you turn the standard definition of "aging" upside down while taking your energy and health to new heights with precision.


Feed Your Genes

The way you eat affects the way you think, the way you feel, the way you look, the way you show up to the world, and the way you perform. In this training, you’ll be provided with a model that not only will optimize your energy and personal performance, but will also be optimal for your unique genetics.

Sleep Well to Perform Better

As humans, we are socially, organizationally, economically, physically, behaviorally, nutritionally, linguistically, cognitively, and emotionally dependent upon sleep. In this training, you'll be equipped with the systems and strategies to immediately improve your sleep and performance.

Health Beyond The Workplace

Business travel along with remote work comes with a set of unique circumstances and environments. With that said, business travel and working remotely isn't going anywhere. In fact, it's only going to increase. However, in this training, I'll share some practical strategies to keep you healthy, sane, and ready to perform at a high level right out of the gate.
