The Role of Wellness in Creating the New Leader

Speaker: Ron Davis

We will look at characteristics of what constitutes a leader, referencing both past day characteristics and current publications/books such as “5 Types of Leaders”, “Start with Why”, among others. I will then make the comparison on how the best leaders not only take care of themselves, but they see to it that those that work with them are cared for and well themselves.

Breakout session

 Breakout Room A

Nutrition: Redefined

Speaker: Adrienne Raimo, R.D., L.D.

As a nation, we spend more on wellness than most others and yet our health outcomes and life expectancy don’t match the investment. Perhaps it’s time to take a look at the politics around food, company metrics of ‘wellness’, and to clear the confusion around what we should be doing to improve our health. Personalized medicine and nutrition depends on healthcare providers willing to take a comprehensive look at a patient’s diet, genetics, food intolerances/sensitivities, sleep, stress levels, and more! Learn what real nutrition involves, why it’s important and how to take small, sustainable steps to a higher level of wellness.

 Breakout Room B

Employee Wellness: Successfully engaging every Generation

Speaker: Jerry Lynch

Wellness is all around us. From healthier choices on menus, yoga studios on every block and employee wellness programs at work, we are surrounded. The question is, how do we get everyone on board? This presentation will discuss the different generations and how they perceive wellness, as well as how to engage each generation in a work site wellness program.

Breakout Room C

Debunking the “Corporate Wellness is a Fad” Myth

Speaker: Bryce Rausch

Everyone influences someone; yet, only a few people influence a lot of people. How you go about doing this will determine how many, how long, and how effectively you influence them. People of positive influence add value to others. Our influence with others is usually not in all areas. With influence comes responsibility. Right motives are crucial to people because leadership functions on the basis of trust. Leadership is Influence. Join Patrick Johnson, Summa Health’s Leadership Coach and a founding member of the John Maxwell Team of professional coaches, trainers, and speakers, as he shares insights to unlock your potential to personally and professionally influence others in today’s work environments.

Sleep your way to optimal wellness

Speaker: Dr. Kasia Hrecka

The one-third of our lives that we spend sleeping is far from being “unproductive”. It plays a direct role in how full, energetic and successful the other two-thirds of our lives can be. When you sleep well, you feel better, you look better and your whole day is so much easier. Sleep is crucial for health of our immune system and for balancing of our appetites. New studies are, also, showing that there is a direct correlation between sleep deprivation and employee engagement and injury. She how you can join the sleep revolution.

 Breakout Room A

Well-being and Business Performance

Speaker: Kay Lakhi, MS, RDN, LD, NHA

For years wellness has primarily focused on physical health. More recently, the field has begun to also address mental and emotional health factors such as stress, but even more recent research suggests that is not enough. Instead, total well-being should now be our focus. When addressing total well-being we need to take into consideration personal purpose, career, connection to community, emotional, financial, and physical factors. That is exactly what the “wellness” programs of the future will do, although accomplishing it will take time. This presentation will address the current state of well-being in America, the business value of taking a broader approach, and describe the types of initiatives likely to have the greatest impact.

 Breakout Room B

Financial Wellness: A Critical Piece to the Wellness Puzzle

Speaker: Michael Cheslock

Employees feel the burden of financial stress daily and studies show they want support for their employer. Financial wellness is having an understanding of the individual’s financial situation and taking care of it in such a way that they are prepared for financial changes. Maintaining that balance consists of being comfortable with where money comes from and where it is going. This takes time and knowledge, two things employers and employees lack the most in the financial world.

Breakout Room C

Mindfulness Matters

Financial wellness is having an understanding of the individual’s financial situation and taking care of it in such a way that they are prepared for financial changes.
