Cultures of health are webs of social influences that manifest themselves in shared
healthy beliefs and behaviors. Among these social influences are shared values, norms,
peer support and overall social climate. A culture of health is also embedded in informal
and formal policies and practices. A culture of health increases the effectiveness of
worksite health promotion activities in lowering population health risk and in helping
employees achieve lasting lifestyle improvement goals. This seminar will teach fieldtested strategies for creating cultures of health at your workplace. We will examine how
to measure the current culture and how to prioritize culture change goals. You will learn
how to mobilize leadership, peer and household support as well as how to incorporate
your health promotion work into a systematic culture-change process.

One of the greatest challenges facing health promotion professionals is documenting
the performance and impact of their programs. To justify ongoing support for health
promotion initiatives, program managers often declare that health promotion and
disease prevention are “the right thing to do.” However, program sponsors require proof
that these programs are worth the investment and produce both a positive return on
investment (ROI) and value on investment (VOI).
This Intensive Training Seminar (ITS) will provide the skills and insights for designing and implementing
effective measurement and evaluation programs for workplace health promotion. The session will
address such topics as: How is health promotion evaluation research performed? How can program
managers gather documentary evidence that proves their programs have impact? Is such research in
fact doable? What evaluation studies can program managers do themselves, and when is it wise to bring
in outside experts?
The training will provide a practical measurement and evaluation framework that is first directed at
small businesses that cannot afford large and expensive studies. For individuals not trained in advanced
research methods, the training offers easy-to-implement techniques on ways to design and administer
evaluation surveys and how to present data from these. For individuals with advanced training in program
evaluation, the training will review techniques and principles used in sophisticated and rigorous applied
research studies and how these can be adapted to health promotion evaluations. Finally, the training
will provide an overview of some of the most highly referenced studies and the methods used in those
studies. The session will combine theoretical and practical approaches to program evaluation with plenty of
opportunity to try out ideas with other ITS participants.

Let’s cut to the chase.
The best research conducted over the last two decades tells us that the vast majority
of organizational change initiatives don’t just fail—They fail miserably! And in a time
where the health status of virtually every working American is being compromised, the
predicament in which we now find ourselves is concerning indeed.
This intensive, highly interactive workshop is specifically designed to teach you a practical, step-by-step,
evidence-based approach to creating organizational change—the kind of change that impacts lives and
By taking part in this two-day intensive training, you’ll be immersed in a five-step approach that will show
you exactly the steps to take—and the specific strategies to employ—to make the healthy choice, the
easy choice in your organization.
In addition, we’ll examine and dissect some of the most successful changes initiatives that have resulted in
Make no mistake: It doesn’t matter who you are or what kind of business you’re in—if you don’t know the
key steps to creating healthy change, if you can’t make the healthiest choice the easiest choice, and if you
can’t lead the entire process in your organization—your destiny has already been determined.
But here’s the deal.
Some can—and they’re the difference makers. They’re the ones who are in demand. They’re the ones
who are writing their own tickets. And they’re the ones whose organizations are thriving.
Join me in a memorable two-day experience and master the art and science of creating healthy change.

While the need for well-being in the workplace has not gone away, finding an effective
way to actually engage employees in these efforts has remained elusive. A growing
body of research—including our own—suggests that managers may serve as an
untapped potential for increasing rates of engagement with wellness, as well as
our most powerful resource for building a positive culture. The key is to move every
manager from Gatekeeper to Multiplier by giving them an explicit role in both wellnessand culture-building efforts. Join Laura Putnam, author of Workplace Wellness That Works (Wiley, 2015)
and creator of Managers on the Move, to learn about how you can activate managers in your organization
to become Multipliers of Well-Being. She will share secrets from her Managers on the Move, a unique
“leadership meets wellness” training workshop for managers that has now been delivered to over 1,000
managers and leaders across the nation. Come away with information, inspiration and a step-by-step
template to launch a manager-driven movement of well-being within your organization.

TThis workshop is designed to train all allied health professionals to teach, direct or
facilitate quality stress management presentations/workshops at their worksite. The
focus of this intensive workshop is holistic—honoring the integration, balance and
harmony of mind, body, spirit and emotions for optimal well-being. The purpose of
this workshop is two-fold: 1) to gain a sound background in the holistic approach to
stress management (addressing not only the causes of stress through effective coping skills but also the
symptoms of stress with effective relaxation techniques) and 2) to learn, refine and practice excellent
teaching skills in which to share this knowledge most effectively, whether it is through a one-hour
presentation or a 16-week college course. Professionals who have greatly benefited from this workshop
include nurses, social workers, counselors, schoolteachers, wellness directors, therapists, health educators,
college professors, physicians and those wishing to make a career change. Special focuses include the
topics of burnout, work-life balance, healthy boundaries, stress and nutrition, mindfulness and improved
