Meaningful change doesn’t start or end with talk, it starts and ends with you.
Happiness is not a state of mind
Happiness is achieved!

Starting Your Wellness Journey
As human beings we are hardwired to connect with each other. When that doesn’t happen, we experience pain. When we feel pain, we medicate. When self-medicating takes on harmful behavior, it is a manifestation of the subconscious moving into fight, flight, freeze, or faint. We have two approaches to medicating; one is on the outside and the other is on the inside. Outside medicating is called exogenous and inside medicating is called endogenous.
An Exogenous Approach
- Prescription drugs
- Energy drinks
- Soft drinks
Personal wellness is the process of healing yourself. Our personal wellness plan involves addressing one or all of the following issues.
- Addiction recovery
- drugs, pornography, sex, anger, etc.
- PTSD, CPTSD, ADD, ADHD
- Obesity, food disorders
- Depression, anxiety, stress
- Life just sucks and you want a re-take!
An Endogenous Approach
- Anger, rage, bullying
- Controlling, manipulation, persuasion, should-ing, sarcasm
- Stonewalling, contempt, defensiveness, criticism
- Helicopter parenting, playing the victim or rescuer
- Holding grudges
- Having to be right
All coaching, whether organizational or personal, is based on promoting the universal principle that healthy, successful relationships are based on mutual trust and respect. Organizations are driven by culture and culture is developed, maintained, and promoted by leaders. When leaders manifest strong emotional intelligence, workers are more engaged and have a higher commitment than workers surrounded with a culture of incivility. When your employee population trusts and respects management, and believes that said management is committed to their wellbeing, they will perform exponentially better than employees who see the relationship with management as adversarial and uncivil. Our organizational coaching focuses on six areas, all of which require the development of emotional intelligence, or EQ.
