Who doesn’t want the people working for them to be better, faster and more productive?

The surprising truth about what motivates your employees.

And how a holistic approach to well-being can transform productivity and profits…

Dear Business Owners, Human Resources Managers and Wellness Program Managers,

You may believe money is the ultimate motivator for your employees.
You may even believe the woman who never takes vacation, the woman who shows up early and stays late is your most productive employee.

But before you go off adding zeros to paychecks as a way to ensure commitment and productivity, I urge you to pause.

Hi, I am Dr. Michelle Robin. As a chiropractor, author, teacher and the founder of Your Wellness Connection, I help people start living healthier, happier lives one sustainable change at a time. I take the latest science, my own research in behavior change and my work as a chiropractor, and translate it into easy-to-apply real-world solutions.

Today, I want to help you too. I will show you how this approach will make your employees work smarter, better, and faster.

But, before I tell you exactly how I can help, I want to share a story with you.

One of my corporate clients once told me their most productive employee was a man that didn’t show up until 10:30 a.m. every day. This employee never stayed late. He often would forfeit his raise in lieu of having a longer vacation. One time he even took off to New Zealand for a full 6-weeks…

He wasn’t the highest paid employee or the one spending the most time in the office.
Yet, surprisingly, every month without a doubt this employee was THE top performer.

When I asked the employee how he continued to get such impressive results he told me, “I know my body. I know what it needs to perform.”

Through our conversation I learned that every morning this employee would get up and journal. After he journaled for an hour, he would ride his bike, rain or shine, for an hour and half. After he got home from his bike ride he didn’t chug a mug of coffee and rush off to work. He didn’t stuff himself quickly with some sugar-saturated oatmeal or an egg biscuit. Instead he would enjoy a green smoothie. For this employee it wasn’t about being healthy, it was about eating in and moving in a way that truly agreed with his body.

By the time he showed up for work he was truly prepared for his day.
Mentally, physically and emotionally he was ready to take on the tasks in front of him.
This man understood that personalized self-care, was the ultimate productivity hack.

The truth is our world needs people who listen to their bodies.

According to a recent Gallup poll, about 86% of full-time workers have at least one chronic condition. Full-time workers in the U.S. who have chronic health conditions miss an estimated 450 million additional days of work each year.

Workers in the U.S. who, at some point in their lives, have been diagnosed with depression miss an estimated 68 million additional days of work each year. That is an estimated cost of more than $23 billion in lost productivity annually to U.S. employers.

So, how can you have healthy profits and healthy employees?
Social science has proven over and over that the most motivated people aren’t the best paid, but those who can find meaning in their work. The most motivated people aren’t inspired by external cues, but internal ones. As social scientist Alfie Kohn has examined at the Harvard Business Review, rewards and incentives may lead to “temporary compliance.” However, when there are no more rewards, no more gift cards, gold stars or pats on the back a person will revert back to their old unhealthy habits.

This is why diets don’t work.
This is also why most corporate wellness programs don’t work either.

In simple terms, people need to learn to listen to their bodies.
They need to learn to tune into their well-being.

Here is how I can help:

Through a 90-minute workshop I can help your employees learn how to listen to their body. In just 1 ½ hours they will create their own custom wellness plan and be 100% prepared to take their first steps on their wellness journey.

Our bodies are brilliant. They are able to adapt to our modern life, handle most short-term stress, and change as we age. Our bodies also talk to us when things aren’t right. We’re accustomed to only paying attention when we feel pain or are miserably sick. There is a lot of room on the spectrum of well-being between optimal wellness and disease. In this workshop you’ll take the Body Talk Metabolic Assessment to notice what your body’s been trying to tell you in the areas of digestion, blood sugar, nervous system, and hormones (all and male/female specific). Then you’ll learn how to start listening to your body and the course corrections you can make to live well today. (Optional blood work and expanded presentation.)

In this presentation/workshop your employees will learn:

  • What your body is trying to tell you about the areas of digestion, blood sugar, nervous system and hormones by taking the Body Talk Metabolic Assessment.
  • Understand what the signals from your body mean as Dr. Robin explains each section of the Body Talk form.
  • Specific actions you can take, and new habits you can create to improve your health and well-being in any or all areas of life, particularly those included in the Body Talk assessment.

Are you looking for workshop to your organization or employees? Contact me here. We can discuss your company’s needs and then I’ll present you with a proposal with your unique needs in mind.

“We are so thankful to Dr. Robin and her team for teaching us simple, holistic tools to enhance our lifestyles both physically and mentally. From minor adjustments to major shifts, Dr. Robin’s team does a wonderful job at connecting and strengthening the well-being of our staff.”

Madeline McCrary

Coordinator of Special Projects & Assistant to the CEO
"Your presentation was extremely well received.  I heard nothing but ‘great speaker’ comments as people left, and believe me, what doesn’t always happen.  And my biggest fan, but also someone who’ll give me honest feedback is my husband, who was walking around the house last night, quoting you, so well that means you were amazing!"

Tracey Demarea

Executive Director | Johnson County Bar Association
"I’ve heard Dr. Robin speak in a couple different settings. She teaches a lot of great information and in a way that makes it easy to understand and really sink in. But what makes her different from other health and wellness speakers is her message of making small changes. Everything about her approach makes getting healthier seem actually possible. She talks about making minor adjustments a little at a time, not massive lifestyle changes all at once, and then she shows you how so that it isn’t overwhelming. She talks about not just setting goals, but finding a team to help you meet your goals, so that you know you’re not alone. Dr. Robin is also real and relatable; she really connects with the audience."

"The E Factor Mini-retreat was a game changer for my executive team and our organization as a whole. Dr. Robin’s approach engaged our hearts, minds and bodies and reconnected our staff to our personal and professional mission of healthy living. Many of our executive team were compelled to take immediate action in their own lives and have since shared testimonials of significant changes in their well-being. The E Factor has given us simple, holistic tools to expand our mission of healthy living, at home and throughout the organization, benefiting us as individuals, as a team, and our customers."

"Over the past two years, Michelle Robin has worked with both the Calgary and Denver Women Presidents Organization Chapters, as well as many of my clients. She has been instrumental in helping them to significantly enhance their health and lives. She is an outstanding speaker of influence, the most informed and gifted wellness expert I have ever had the opportunity to work with."

Elizabeth Lake Ledoux

CEO | Nacelle Consulting
"As a small business it’s been a challenge to establish a wellness program without corporate resources. Our team travels extensively. We wanted to create a culture of wellness and give our team the knowledge and tools for health and well-being at home, in the office and on the road. Dr. Robin provided a comprehensive program customized for us and it is exceeding our expectations. She and her team partnered with us to identify our goals and define a plan of action. Best of all, Dr. Robin kicked off our program as the keynote speaker at our staff retreat. She received outstanding ratings and feedback from our associates, leaving people motivated and anxiously awaiting next steps, and eager to join our new official wellness committee."

Dan Nilsen

CEO | Bishop McCann
"Dr. Robin is a ray of light in the wellness industry and we are so thankful for her gift that she share with our world! Since bringing her on board to coach and educate our members regarding healthy living, NACWAA’s programming has reached a new level. Her passion, energy, spirit and vitality show up in all that she does. She is fit to lead and so are we! Much gratitude to you for your work!"

Gina Krahulik

Director of Leadership and Education | National Association of Collegiate Women, Athletics Administrators
"When we approached Dr. Robin about speaking at our inaugural Worksite Wellness Symposium she accepted the invitations with the enthusiasm and commitment that was vital to the success of the first-time event. Throughout the planning process she went above and beyond her role as a speaker through her insight and recommendations for the direction of the program. We couldn’t have been more pleased with her presentation, and the overwhelming response we got from our event attendees further validated our decision to include her in our event."
