About Cris

Have you heard about those guest speakers and facilitators who go on and on about how wonderful they are? And then tell you how they ‘discovered’ the answer and now you can have it too (at a huge cost)?

Well, that’s not Cris. He believes that kind of talk disempowers people. And we’re here to excite and incentivise your people. He also has a healthy respect that everyone’s path is unique. As such, you should “walk your own walk”.

What does Cris mean by this? He’s had struggles (and still does). And he’s made a few mistakes. In fact, he believes in making mistakes every day, to learn and grow. But Cris also believes in learning from others. His journey has taught him some valuable shortcuts. Shortcuts that can help you (and others) avoid some of the pitfalls he’s experienced.

Cris has shared a stage with the likes of the Dalai Lama, Brené Brown and others. Their inspiration shaped the successful wellbeing practises that Cris now brings to workplaces.

    How Do We Get Staff To Take Responsibility For Their Own Wellbeing?

    A truly effective wellbeing program is one which staff take responsibility for their own wellbeing.  Too many times you go to an organisation and you see people thinking: 

    “The organisation will take care of it! The organisation will look after my wellbeing”. 

    How do you get people to take responsibility for their own wellbeing?

    Not by a one size fits all – or telling them what to do.

    Everyone knows you need to eat more vegetables, get more sleep, exercise more.  You do it by helping people develop their own personal wellbeing plans for 30, 60 and 90 months.

    The general expectation in the past has been “the company is going to do it all for us”.  This is not one of our principles at workplace wellbeing. 

    Instead, we help your people to create a work plan, a life plan and a health plan.  Going through the specifics of creating those plans, we actually get the people to identify: 

    1. What are their objectives for their wellbeing? 
    2. What are the roadblocks they are facing? 
    3. How much time do they want to allocate to their wellbeing?  

    Then it gets down to issues and actions. 

    We can, as an organisation, identify some of the actions which are generic right across the board but there are many others that are specific to the individual. 

    That is when they have to step up and say “What do I need to do to take responsibility?”  

    We give guidelines, data and help your workforce to create sustainable, healthy habits.  But the philosophy is one of personal accoujntability and never that the organisation is going to do everything for us. 

    As we like to say “I’m well, we’re well, all’s well.”
