GLOBAL MARKET PLACE

We now have a Globalization of Markets and Technologies.
The emergence of Universal Connectivity.
The Democratization of Information/Expectations.
An Exponential increase in Competition.
The Movement of Wealth Creation from Financial Capital to Intellectual and Social Capital.
Free Agency – we are becoming more and more informed, aware and conscious of options and alternatives than ever before.

Permanent White Water – we live in a constant, churning, changing environment.

John Gardner once said, “Most ailing organizations have developed a functional blindness to their own defects. They are not suffering because they cannot solve their problems, but because they cannot see their problems.” Einstein put it this way, “the significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.”

STRESS is then produced at every level of an organization trying to contend with the ever changing world.

This STRESS then translates into every member of an organization.

STRESS evolves in every person differently from – anger, high blood pressure, developing poor eating habits, not exercising, poor sleep, poor interpersonal relationships, conflict issues and unable to relax.

Our team of professional experts are collectively able to address all of these issues.

This in time brings about a healthy work place environment that is productive, cohesive and striving as a collective organization.

Companies are struggling to achieve their goals, struggling to meet shareholder demands and wondering whether the competition in the global market will leave them losing their foothold.

It is no longer about the level of education that can be brought to a company and it is no longer about culling the workplace to make it economically viable.

Even with all that in place there are still no guarantees that a company will survive.

So what is the factor that is missing?

Healthy human dynamics!

Companies struggle to work as a healthy cohesive organization that has an acknowledged Mission Statement that works for every member of the company.

This program is about understanding organizational behavior which is in essence studying and understanding human nature.

For once we understand the fundamental elements of human nature, we possess the key to unlocking the potential inside of people and organizations.

This program reaches deep into the heart of the corporation to understand the following:-

  • why there is a high level of attrition
  • why there is worker conflict
  • why there are leadership issues
  • why there is an in-congruency between departments
  • why there is worker dissatisfaction
  • why the leaders struggle to achieve what they have set out to achieve
  • why there is discord between leaders
  • why there is low trust
  • no shared vision
  • lack of efficiency
  • non attendance due to illness or stress

We are able to come in and assess all of the above and work towards a healthy work place status, where the company’s productivity increases due to worker wellness, satisfaction and interpersonal dynamic congruency.

We provide:-

  • executive and staff programs
  • stress management – mind, body, spirit
  • chiropractic care
  • massage
  • meditation
  • personal training
  • yoga

Lisa Mitchell – Yoga for Chronic Stress

Sinead Massey – Corporate Fitness

I am a mother of two who embraces a lifestyle that is modelled on holistic healthy living.

After a long career in the corporate Telecommunications and Information Technology sectors, I found myself looking for change. A back injury resulted in some serious reflection on what I actually wanted out of life, so I started a part-time Personal Training business in 2007. The latter has enabled me to pursue my love of working with people and to explore my keen interest in the human body. It was this that took me out of the Corporate world and into the Health and Fitness Industry full-time in 2012.

I strive to encourage my clients to make small and realistic changes that will move them towards bigger and better living, resulting in ongoing Quality Of Life.

I am passionate about nutrition and exercise and when working with clients, adopt a hands-on approach which focuses on the body from the inside out. I take special care in assessing my clients through Postural Analysis and applying the relevant Corrective Exercise. When the body’s foundation/core is strong, it will move and function better.

I’m a generalist who is flexible to suit the needs of each individual and am mindful in addressing any pre-existing or current injuries. I make every effort to prescribe exercise which is fun, manageable and something that YOU CAN DO – forever!

Philosophies

  • What the head believes – the body will follow. It all starts with the head.
  • Quality over quantity
