The Certification Training will provide in-depth personal experience and practical knowledge of the Wellness Inventory change process as well as a unique coaching skill-set to maximize the program’s effectiveness in creating change in your clients’ lives. The goal of the course is to create competence in delivering the program to both individual and organizational coaching clients.
The Wellness Inventory is an online assessment and life-balance tool that focuses on the whole person in 12 key dimensions of wellness. A powerful tool for coaches, the Wellness Inventory is an advanced version of the life wheel (coaching mandala), and provides invaluable insight into your client and as well as a framework or "organizing principle" within which to work. The course will include a free annual Wellness Inventory subscription for participants, the results of which will be integrated into the curriculum.
Participants will gain proficiency in working with clients with the 12 part wellness wheel (Wellness Energy System) via an ongoing exploration of the wellness wheel as a dynamic hologram of interdependent elements. The process of working with the Wellness Wheel helps to develop greater coherence in your personal life and teaches you how to use this "whole person" process in your coaching to facilitate greater coherence in your clients’ lives.
From a marketing and business perspective, you will learn strategies for using the Wellness Inventory to:
Create a wellness dimension in your practice
Quickly determine client's "change readiness" in each dimension of wellness
Create a framework for ongoing wellness coaching
Build your practice and increase client retention
Create new profit centers
Work with individuals, groups and organizations
The Wellness Inventory was created 35 years ago by John W. Travis, MD, MPH, a key founder of the modern wellness movement. Dr. Travis opened the first Wellness Center in the U.S. in 1975 and created the Wellness Inventory, based on his 12 part "wellness energy system, as an intake tool for the center. Earlier, while completing his residency at Johns Hopkins and the National Public Health Service, Dr. Travis was a protégé of Dr. Louis Robbins, creator of the HRA (Health Risk Appraisal). Unlike the HRA which is a diagnostic tool to determine health risk, the Wellness Inventory is primarily an educational tool that focuses on the whole person. The online version of the Wellness Inventory was created by HealthWorld Online in collaboration with Dr. Travis.
