Employee Assistance Programs

Businesses can contract with a life coach who focuses on mental health issues, life-satisfaction, and nurturing passion in order to increase employee satisfaction at work, and ultimately improve productivity and tenure within the enterprise. We have special group-rates for working with businesses. It's far less expensive to improve employee morale than deal with lost productivity or hire and train new employees. Employees get full confidentiality, employers can work with the coach on measurable milestones and performance improvements but the employee has to be aware of and agree to the measures used because honesty and transparency are important in a coaching relationship.

The life coach remains an independent contractor for these assignments, and is not told how to do their work with the employee. This helps keep the employee's information confidential, and allows the coach and employee to address life issues both inside and outside of the work environment, all of which have an impact on the employee's mental health that they bring with them to work every day, and can impact productivity, absenteeism and lateness.

These are our regular group programs. Each program is a combination of class and coaching programs, and with the exception of any introductory seminars they are experiential and require individual and group participation. These programs may be booked for private engagements.
