Elements of Thriving

Resilience and health consciousness work together to create a culture of awareness and learning in which people respond more positively to adversity.

An increasing number of wellness practitioners are being asked to deliver training or coaching in various health and wellness topics. To meet this need, the National Wellness Institute (NWI), in collaboration with Organizational Wellness Learning Systems (OWLS), is offering facilitator certificate courses featuring evidence-informed tools and competency-based training. Courses are offered online quarterly. Onsite courses may also be scheduled throughout the year at various locations.

We offer two facilitator certificate courses in partnership with OWLS:

 

Individuals who earn a facilitator certificate through NWI will be able to use the tools, resources, and techniques provided in the certificate course to train students, employees, and clients in various settings in the topic presented.

 

 

Health Consciousness and Resilience Training is More Than "Check the Box"

A course in resilience and stress management will not help your staff if they return to a toxic work environment. Empowered Health Consciousness is a route to addressing resiliency work in a conscious, mindful way to stimulate growth and health in the work culture, the work climate, and the work environment. Health consciousness and resilience work together.

Resilience vs. Empowered Health Consciousness

The Roles of Resilience and Empowered Health Consciousness

Resilience is operable in a window of time; it is the “bounce back” from adversity. Health consciousness is an ongoing process. It comes before resilience, is at play during resilience, and continues after the resilience. If you are not conscious of what’s happening during the stress-inducing event, you are not going to be resilient. Being present and aware during an adverse experience enables you to learn from the difficulty, promoting a resilient response.
