What is Wellcoaching?
Wellcoaching directly improves well-being
The skills, tools, and processes of a Wellcoach (well-being coach) serve our three core human needs (self-determination theory) which drive our well-being into the positive zone: autonomy (exploring and growing according to one’s heartfelt values, strengths, and aspirations), expanding competence and mastery in work and life, and relationships that empower both.
Wellcoaching is generative
Working with a Wellcoach generates psychological resources – internal motivation, insights, confidence, purpose, hope, optimism, positive emotions, etc. – that make your foundation for positive change. Over time, transformational change is the sum of small changes in learning, knowledge, mindset (attitudes, perspectives, beliefs), and identity (how you define yourself) over time. The brain can grow neural networks at a biological rate of around one millimeter per day. Coaching helps you shape your neural networks toward your imagined ideal future self, life, and work.
Wellcoaching turns challenges into growth
Our sources of stress and strain are, in fact, are invitations to grow, serving as our growth edges and opportunities. Wellcoaching helps people walk through the tough stuff and shift challenges quickly into new insights, wisdom, strength, and opportunities.
Wellcoaching turns aspirations into results
Wellcoaching helps people translate general aspirations which have often been elusive – e.g., listen better, eat better, delegate more, ruminate less, get leaner, empathize more - into a formula of habits that delivers the results you want.
The Wellcoaches protocol has shown significantly positive results in all 22 research studies published in scientific journals, involving 194 Wellcoaches coaches delivering 128,076 sessions to 30,984 clients or patients, for workplace wellness, burnout, weight loss, pre-diabetes and diabetes, heart disease risk factors, smoking cessation, cancer, and fibromyalgia.
