Unlocking creativity is key to maximizing company growth and productivity. Stress and creativity can’t live in the same head at the same time. They’re opposites on the productivity scale and in THIS case, opposites definitely DON’T attract. This can be a
serious issue when it comes to problem solving. In my fun and interactive workshop, participants will learn tips, tricks, exercises and games to keep their inner child happy and their creativity at its peak!
We've become a nation of grumps and sourpusses. Really! As adults we've forgotton how to PLAY! We think work and play are separate things. But are they? Should they be?! The culture of business needs to change if employers (or even those who are self-employed) want the best from their people. It doesn’t matter if the company has 2 people or 2,000—overall, “wellness companies” work backwards. They start from the outside in, instead of the inside out. This causes a TON of stress, which leads to burnout.
Most stress comes from other areas of life. Hence the term 'wellbeing.' See, there is no "work-life balance!" Work is PART of life!! Alleviating stress and incorporating a sense of community and play brings out the best in employees. There are 10 Areas of Wellbeing that are needed to achieve this. I talk about the importance of each one and how they provide a synergistic affect for you and your people.

“I had asked Rona to speak at our hospital's Heart and Vascular Institute community education event for Heart Month. Rona was able to incorporate elements of nutrition and exercise into her overall theme of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Her speaking style and enthusiasm kept the audience engaged and entertained. She offered a wealth of information on how to keep healthy and fit and she included a great deal of audience participation. It was, according to our post-event feedback, our top-rated event over the past seven years. “
