In a study of a large, multi-employer, multi-site employee population, healthcare expenditures for employees with high levels of stress were 46% higher than those for employees who did not have high levels of stress (Goetzel et al., 1998). 41% of employees say they feel stressed out during the day (APA, 2009). 66% of US adults have been told by their health care provider that they have one or more chronic conditions. 63% of American adults are overweight or obese. Organizations with the most effective health, well-being and productivity programs, including coaching, had 28% higher shareholder returns (TowersWatson, 2010.)
Wellness coaching, which I have broadened to well-being coaching is a collaborative relationship between a client and their wellness coach characterized by a structured conversational process that promotes accountability, creativity and commitment to help one reach their well-being goals. Focused expertise, encouragement and processes from the wellness coach help the client achieve more well-being than they otherwise would have accomplished on their own.
Wellness Coaching helps close the gap between where one is now and where they most want to be.
