Workplace Wellness: More than a fitness program – Sun Hire

Hi All, today I wanted to discuss a very important topic regarding workplace wellness programs, and thats the mis-guided belief that your workplace wellness program is nothing more than a fitness program.

Workplace wellness programs encompassing fitness and nutrition utilize these three other components to create a strong, effective program that creates a positive team and company culture:

-Effective Leadership on the middle-management level: Effective leadership on the middle-management level is crucial to the success of a program. At the end of the day, no matter what your role is within your company, youre your own manager and you should feel empowered to be your own manager. Micro-management and ineffective communication strategies, along with a self-centered state of mind simply dont build a thriving team. Learning about your team members and building off of their strengths, while giving generously to their positive behaviors, reinforces them that theyre on the right path and doing the right thing. A major pitfall to company success is a middle management who doesnt recognize employee capabilities and successes in fear that the employees will be recognized for them. Successful teams build successful businesses and a successful manager will assign team members to carry out tasks to build their teams strengths. Managers who take on entire workloads in fear of delegation simply cant take their teams to the next level. If youre worried about what your team members capabilities are, talk to them. Learn about your team members and recognize their strengths and weaknesses.

Because I have an online bodybuilding team, plus an in-person business, I constantly have to learn about people and places. I have to learn about environments and how people operate within them. When something isnt working I have to dig deeper and uncover the source. If your team members arent working, and you dont have the time or capability to figure out why, simply observe their behaviors, listen with intent, and get to know them and their surroundings. Watch how their departments operate, recognize the way they convey messages to you, verses others, watch their tone of voice and facial expressions in conversions and pay attention to their behaviors. As a coach, Im constantly analyzing environments and people mechanisms. My goal is always to build strength and building strength requires understanding details within a person, place, and system. When you recognize the problem, focus on building a solution. Dont go it alone, build your team!! If your team isnt willing to learn and grow and youve spent time trying to find solutions, they probably arent the right team for your business and as a manager, its your responsibility to build a strong, thriving team. If youve tried everything, its time to recruit a new team and fire those who arent serving the success of your purpose.

-Understanding and Compassion towards employees on all levels: A key driver that strong leaders utilize, is compassion towards their teams members. Finding out what your team is passionate about, recognizing their strengths, and giving them reasons to build those strengths, creates a team that doesnt want to leave and pursue other ventures. As a manager, its your responsibility to build your team, recognize their strengths, and show compassion when they face roadblocks and hardships.

-An all-encompassing approach that utilizes proper management best practices and employee recognition: Recognition comes in many forms, acknowledge successes within your team and point out your team members who are being successful!! Celebrate YOUR TEAMs SUCCESS!!! If your team doesnt have success, get to the bottom of it!! Find out the root cause and fix it!! If you still dont have success, look within! Look at your processes, communications, behaviors. Figure out whats preventing your team from succeeding and solve the problem. If your team still isnt performing effectively, you probably have the wrong team.

Finally, effective leaders lead by example. Show your team how to be effective leaders through proper communication, compassion and recognition. They will become more productive, enjoy their jobs, and work harder towards your mission.
