Life Management instead of Time Management

Let’s face it: your workforce is under stress. The problem is huge.“Stress is one of the most frequently reported work-related health problem in Europe and believed to be the cause of the majority of lost working days. (…) The EU say that: “Prolonged psychological pressure may result in serious health problems such as cardiovascular or musculoskeletal diseases, leading to poor working performance and more absenteeism.” (EU, 2014).

With this statement, the European Union has finally accepted the scientific evidence of the mind-body connection: Poor mental health and stress at work leads to sub optimum performance and increased sick leave. High levels of absenteeism decreases employee morale, loyalty and hinders future recruitment.

Employee performance starts with employee life-balance

Full physical and mental recovery is needed for employees to maintain high performance levels. While humans can handle short-term stress, long-term (chronic) stress makes us sick, demotivated and depressed. Eventually this will lead to burnout and a hefty 3-year re-integration process. This creates individual suffering and business breakdown, leading to more individual suffering.

Reducing absenteeism requires both physical and mental health strategies to train employees for Resilience, Recovery and Responsibility. Because in the end it is a shared interest to have healthy colleagues.

Our Life balance management programmes are an integrated approach to human well-being aimed at the prevention of disease. In life balance we focus on the whole human being instead of the old “work/life” paradigm. Our approach connects:

  • Physical health
  • Mental health
  • Purpose in life

Our training and coaching approach

Every organization has its own culture, its own ‘status quo’ when it comes to stimulating optimum health. Our training and coaching programs take this as the starting point for helping you in how to best construe behavioral change in your organization. To prevent physical and mental illness we translate this need for change into programs that include:

  • Stress reduction skills
  • Integrated nutrition
  • Physical fitness knowledge and practice
  • Cultural adaptation skills
  • Burnout prevention tools
