The Global Wellness Institute, GWI, announces an initiative on wellness coaching to empower individuals and businesses around the world to more confidently partner with wellness coaches—a unique force that can drive positive, personal and long-term lifestyle change. The mission: clarify wellness coach specialties and global guidelines through education and community resources.
Diet, exercise, a sense of community and purpose are proven to influence health and wellbeing. While many people would like to make healthy choices, it is not easy to make a choice and have the inspiration to take the first steps. Wellness coaching provides the education, mindset and motivation to help drive positive behaviour change and integrate holistic, personalised strategies for optimising health and wellbeing.
Wellness coaches around the world will help contribute to achieving The Wellness Moonshot™: – A World Free of Preventable Disease. Global wellness coaching guidelines will help initiate wellness coaching and take the first steps toward making healthy choices and behaviour changes that help minimise preventable disease and improve quality of life.
The Initiative addresses US$1.3 trillion of the global wellness economy, including healthy eating, nutrition and weight loss, and preventive and personalised medicine. Insights and wellness coaching best practices will help wellness businesses increase revenue generation.
Initiative chairman is USA-based Susan O’Connor, CEO, PranaHealth Strategies & Wellness Coach. The vice-chairman is Fiona Cosgrove, CEO of Wellness Coaching Australia.
The Global Wellness Institute is chaired by Susie Ellis, http://www.globalwellnessinstitute.org
