I've been coaching and training for over 15 years and working in Career Integrated Wellness © for over a year and a half. In that time we have created some amazing systems and ideas, ideas that are very new to the traditional workplace. I have also learned in that time that some people will grab onto a new idea and a fresh vision and run with it.
In the past few months at PGC, a gasket company in Edina, MN, where I've been spending a lot of my time, one individual in particular has really seen the benefits and also seen the vision of 10x Traction Wellness to help create a new workplace. The program has come a long ways and with this spark, we will run and the wave is growing. Where will your company fall on the Adoption or Diffusion Curve?
My vision today is very clear. I want to help create a place where people want to be, where health and success are a way of life both between the walls of said company and beyond. When new employees are hired, it is not an option that they will participate in exercise classes. They'll participate because of the exercise benefits. They'll also participate because of the different level that interaction can have on the relationships of those going through the workouts together. Eventually, it will not be an option. Sure there will be days when folks "can't make it". Most often though, individuals will collect as a group with a common vision outside of that the company states, focus on their individual goals with their coworkers, achieve them and grow together in a way that only overcoming adversity (workout) allows. Here are a few additional benefits to having employees exercise together: communication, cooperation, friendship, trust, competition, corporate health, and many more.
Over time, the vision spreads and this becomes the way of being within an organization. Then, not only do employers capitalize on the opportunity to support people by providing jobs, but they are able to contribute to humanity by empowering individuals to take care of themselves. Eventually this impact will spread into business globally and into the world outside of business altogether.
Oh, and because their people are healthier, companies will make more money and be able to hire more individuals.
Contact Jon at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the conversation started today. The programs that we've created will look similar to those we've already got in place but they will not be identical. The people within your organization are different as is your starting point. We will meet you where you are and work with you to provide healthy opportunities for you and your employees right where you are.
