Power Sessions & Presentations
 
As our lives become more hectic, we sacrifice sleep to get more done, we push ourselves harder and harder and our stress levels rise even higher.
It feels like we are on a hamster wheel that continues to accelerate and there seems no way out.
So we have honed or knowledge and expertise and developed our presentations around the most common struggles experienced in the workplace.

Frequent Flyer Strategies
This presentation is not just for those professionals who fly a lot, but addresses the busy executive who feels they have limited time to incorporate healthy choices into their day, those who eat out lots entertaining clients and those who feel they have such a hectic family/personal life that their workplace nutrition often gets put on the back burner and it is a constant trip to the local deli or take out shop.
We can tackle professions where options are often limited such as real estate agents who are traveling lots between house showings, truck drivers, and employees who travel consistently from one job site to another.
 
Psychosocial Health & Safety In The Workplace
Psychosocial Hazards are the non-physical hazards which you cannot "see" but which negatively affect the mental health and mental well-being of your employees.
They are costing Canadian employers $330 million in lost productivity EVERY year.
These hazards include, but are not limited to : Fatigue, Shiftwork, Bullying, Workplace Verbal & Physical Violence, Stress, Work Life Balance
 
Nutrition & Fitness For Shiftworkers
We provide a double edged presentation, the first half covers how to use nutrition to manage the negative impacts of a shiftworking lifestyle and the second half covers why physical fitness is important to shiftworkers and how to fit effective fitness into your unsocial work schedule.
Shiftwork has shown to be related to just some of these conditions : 
  Produces carcinogenic effects on the body
  Increased rate of breast cancer in women
  Shortens life expectancy by 20%
  Increases incidence of depression by 1500%
  Increases ulcer risk by 800%
  Produces more accidents and fatalities on the job
  Substance and alcohol abuse is higher
  Fatalities commuting to work increases
  The body becomes more susceptible to heart disease, weight gain, digestive issues and type II diabetes
  Hallucinations, brain fog and irritability are higher in shift workers
 
Understanding & Living Beyond Cancer
Karen is a Certified Cancer Coach and she can work one-on-one with employees who are managing the emotional and physical effects of a cancer diagnosis, treatment and preparing on returning to work.
In addition to one-on-one coaching and support, Karen presents a support workshop that helps employees to support their diagnosed work colleague during the initial diagnosis phase and when they return to work.
This is an emotional time not only for the person diagnosed but for those around the patient, as work colleagues often feel helpless and not sure on what to do or say.
Karen was once described by her clients "as being the most empathetic coach I know" and she uses her empathy not only to support the patient but to guide and provide strategies on how employees can support their work colleague during the process.
