Approach

We take a holistic approach to developing mind, body and spirit through coaching, speaking, training, and experiential learning. Our Integration Model below shows how competencies in mind/body/spirit relate to each other, creating our resilience "system". The really exciting news is that resilience is a set of skills that can be developed, no matter where we start from. Recent research links developing these skills to improved performance,  learning, longevity, and happiness.

Our coaching, speaking and training programs are customized to your needs. Based on your resilience assessment and intake consultation, we will create a roadmap with you to meet your goals, whether for individuals, teams, or cohorts.

After creating a foundation for understanding resilience, and completing foundational self work during an initial workshop, you may be matched with a coach most suited to your needs for a 12-week program including 1:1 coaching, group coaching, and resources. Membership in our private Resilience Club is included in coaching programs; this allows access to special resources, events, member profiles, and information. We encourage coaching in each of the 3 sectors for maximum benefit, however the sequence may vary with individual needs.  Contact Nancy for details.

INTEGRATION MODEL

INTEGRATION MODEL 3-16

Resilience is our ability to convert adversity into opportunity, and to see possibilities within the obstacles

  • Mind, body, spirit (connectedness) form the foundation
  • “High RQ” is advanced resilience for leaders & teams
  • EQ +BQ + SQ=”RQ”
  • This “whole system” function produces improved focus, performance, and wellness

STRESS VS. PERFORMANCE

Managing your stress is one of the most critical things (by no means the only thing) you can do for your resilience and performance.  The effects of negative stress (there is such a thing as positive stress) on the body are both short and long term; chronic stress can damage virtually all of our organ systems, but most especially the brain. Chronic negative stress is linked directly to six of the leading causes of disease in the U.S.  It has been estimated that up to 85% of diagnosed disease is caused by stress and poor lifestyle choices.

Performance at all levels is IMMEDIATELY disrupted by acute stress; we revert to "lizard brain" (automatic negative thinking patterns and physical hyperdrive) designed to protect us from threats.  This does not serve us well in an important meeting or conversation, and with training we can detect and reroute our brain and body back into "executive or leader brain" functioning where we can again make sound decisions, plan, and return to emotional intelligence and active listening.

We will teach you simple tools for resetting your brain and body, as well as more advanced techniques for maximizing performance similar to those used so successfully in professional sports.
