Healthier Habits at Work
SERVICES FOR EMPLOYERS AND EMPLOYEESGet Started
When you work with True North, we create a personalized plan to bring your company more productivity and peace. Our embedded presencing practices empower you to make decisions that benefit you, your colleagues, and your clients. This is how we start each personalized process:
“When you improve a little each day, eventually big things occur. Not tomorrow, not the next day, but eventually a big gain is made. Don’t look for the big, quick improvement. Seek the small improvement one day at a time. That’s the only way it happens – and when it happens it lasts.”
Wellness Plans Tailored to Your Workplace
We all know unmanaged employee stress and lack of presence negatively impact performance — and can ultimately lead to illness and turnover.
Traditional workplace wellness initiatives are designed to educate employees with the expectation they will implement the practices on their own time. At True North, we change that by building presencing practices into workday routines. We close the knowing-doing gap, create a sustainable shift in workplace culture, and improve employee retention.
Mindfulness in Schools
As a former educator and instructional coach, I know educators need support. We help you provide that support.
Teaching is more than a job — it’s a calling. Because of this, many educators find it hard to build boundaries and care for themselves while serving their students. We empower teachers to find their voice and direct their self care.
After understanding the specific needs of each school and observing the rhythms and patterns already in place, we develop a plan specific to the school community. We can build custom plans for a trimester, a semester, or the whole school year to create the most support.
Many schools are undergoing professional development around closing opportunity gaps and meeting the needs of every student. Equity work is heart work… equity work requires groundedness in the authentic self, and we support that through our embedded practices. We make it possible for teachers to engage in challenging conversations around equity from a place of presence and with the tools to manage their emotional state. We do not provide training around equity and privilege; rather, we build the capacity of individuals to engage wholeheartedly in this work.Case Study: Monona Grove High School
Self-Care in Hospitals
Caregiving is primary to the work of nurses, and as we all know, in order to care for others we must care for ourselves. Tending to patients requires an ability to remain calm in stressful situations, the presence of mind to make decisions in short timeframes, and the capacity to listen from the heart.
Our work in health care helps remind nurses to look after themselves in order to better nurture their patients. We stack presencing practices onto the many habits already in place in order to bring space and calm into each hectic shift. Simple reminders like taking a deep breath before entering a patient room will bring nurses into the present moment.
We provide tools to get anchored in the moment in an ever-changing environment. Nurses present in the moment reach better decisions, make fewer mistakes, and create improved patient experiences.Case Study: Unit 2 South
Wellbeing in Other Workplaces
Every workplace has its rhythms and challenges. We are here to help you discover yours. Our work uses patterns already in place to build wellness habits that address your unique struggles. We will shift workplace culture until the new presencing practices have become ingrained in employees’ daily routines, improving everyone’s wellbeing.Get Started
