The HealthyCultureNow podcast and training feature many of the key concepts and strategies previously available only through our consulting services. The site provides the details and links to sample podcast episodes. Online Well-being Leadership Competency Training is available to managers and well-being committee members. A more extensive online Culture Coach Training and Certification is available to human resources and well-being professionals  Podcast episodes include testimonials from those actively engaged in fostering supportive cultural environments for themselves, their families, their organizations and their communities. HealthCultureNow works with three key audiences:

  • People pursuing personal well-being goals or helping someone else. Our peer support episodes explore how to give and get effective peer support for positive and lasting health improvements.
  • Managers working to create healthy and productive workgroups. Our leadership training and podcast episodes help managers become effective well-being role models, communicators of the well-being vision, and able to lower barriers to healthy behavior within their workgroups.
  • Human resources and well-being professionals seeking to create cultures of health and well-being in their organizations. This six-part Culture Coach Training and podcast series explores how such leaders can implement a comprehensive and systematic culture change plan.

HealthyCultureNow podcast hosts and training faculty deliver lively and informative episodes that get right to the point:
