Millions of Americans try to lose weight and change their lifestyle unsuccessfully every year. Those who succeed are often unable to maintain their positive changes.
We all have clients like this. Many of us have customized eating plans for clients only to have them return weeks later unable to implement the changes we recommend.
Here’s the missing piece: It’s not that we’re bad practitioners or that don’t know what we’re doing. Our training taught us the science of food, not the mindset of eating. We haven't been taught how to help our clients eat intuitively. Let’s face it, we are taught not to honor our bodies at a very young age. Did your parents tell you to clean your plate? Or make you continue to eat after you were already satisfied? They weren’t bad parents; they just didn’t know about intuitive eating. If you're having difficulty helping your clients implement, if you are caught up in the three-session slump, if you are tired of doing labor intensive one-on-one consultations, and struggling to find ways to grow your practice and really help people–these workshops are for you.
You will teach in person or online workshops designed to take your clients through The Six Phases of Lasting Change.
WEEK 1: Starts with a 30-Day No Sugar Challenge, this takes your clients out of the cycle of food cravings and sugar addiction fast. Dealing with emotions can be difficult when blood sugar levels aren't regulated and mental clarity is at half mast. You will teach clients how to set their environment up for success and how to deal with unsupportive people in their life.
WEEK 2: Teaches clients how to tap into their inner resources. These strategies are designed to empower your clients to move away from the belief that they can’t, to a place where they know they can.
WEEK 3: You will help your clients discover how they use food to meet their emotional needs and find more fulfilling ways to meet those needs. This is where you begin to separate emotional hunger from physical hunger and your clients discover what they really hunger for in life.
WEEK 4: You will teach how to separate physical hunger and emotional hunger even further with intuitive eating. You teach your clients to tune into their body and become familiar with their hunger signal, satiation signal and how to enjoy food without guilt or shame.
WEEK 5: The 30-Day No Sugar Challenge ends, and you will guide your clients into the Good Decisions Lifestyle Guidelines. Because life is too short not to eat chocolate. 😉 Clients take off the training wheels and learn more strategies that help them self govern around food effectively.
WEEK 6: This week is all about how to deal with the things that may get in the way of your clients long-term success. You will teach your clients how to deal with negative thoughts, limiting beliefs, and unruly emotions.
WEEK 7: Reinforces maintenance and shows clients how to move successfully through The 6 Phases of Lasting Change. Clients will get a glimpse of who they are beyond thoughts, beliefs, and emotions. They learn how to be Finally Free and at peace with food and their body.
MONTHLY MAINTENANCE WORKSHOPS 1-10: After the initial 7 week series your client's have bonded with each other, shared deeply, and many want to continue with you on their journey. The monthly maintenance workshops transition you from teaching weekly workshops, to teaching monthly workshops. You continue to guide your clients through their entire Hero's Journey for an entire year. That's right. A whole years worth of workshops that will give you income continuity while you touch, move and inspire!
ACCESS TO ALL FUTURE UPDATES: No matter how much the workshops evolve or grow, you will have unrestricted access to any and all updates. This ensures you continue to grow and evolve as the workshops evolve.
INSTRUCTOR MANUALS: From your instructor dashboard you will have immediate access to download the instructor manuals in both word and pdf formats. These walk you through teaching the workshops every step of the way. These empower you to teach from your own unique perspective.
PARTICIPANT WORKBOOKS: You will also be able to immediately download the participant workbooks, also in word and pdf format.
7 WEEKLY WORKSHOPS: You will receive 7 (2-hour) workshops to teach for the first 7 weeks. These are designed to help your clients discover who they are and what they hunger for in life. You will teach intuitive eating, how to move beyond negative thoughts and limiting beliefs, and how to deal with overwhelming emotions. You will teach many tools and strategies designed to break down inner conflict that may get in the way.
10 MONTHLY WORKSHOPS: Overcoming emotional eating and stepping into your true self is not a 7-week process. It's one that can take months and sometimes years. The workshops are designed to keep your participants in maintenance long enough to leave old patterns and ways of being behind. They give you yearly income continuity while empowering you to take your participants on their entire Hero's Journey.
WEEKLY ZOOM CALLS: Each week there is one two-hour live Zoom call where you will learn, with your group, how to teach the workshops. It will be like you are taking the workshop yourself. You will create your own stories from your experiences and then teach from your own unique perspective. These calls are very interactive and you will have the opportunity to practice teaching. If you miss a call you will have access to the recording. Additional support calls each month are also available to help with marketing, coaching, and other support as needed.
TIME REQUIRED: In addition to the 2 hour Zoom calls plan on setting aside a couple hours each week to prepare to teach your workshops.
FACEBOOK SUPPORT: You will have access to an Instructor Facebook group where you can engage with other instructors, ask questions, and post about your challenges and successes.
EMAIL SUPPORT: If you have a question and hesitate to post on Facebook you can email me directly. email@example.com. I am a teacher and mentor first and foremost. Your success is most important to me. Therefore, I make myself fully available to you throughout the training.
RELATIONSHIP MARKETING: Not sure how to market and grow your practice? I owned a wellness center in Washington State for 25 years and will show you how to engage with the your local medical community and build relationships to fill your workshops and grow your practice.
COACHING THE COACH: Not quite sure how to take people out of emotional eating and into their best self? No problem. I’ve got you. You’ll learn how to be an effective change facilitator, how to deal with a difficult participant, how to shine the light on negative thoughts, limiting beliefs, and breakdown the stories that limit us. You'll learn the secrets of mindset.
BRANDED MATERIALS: All of your instructor manuals, participant workbooks and anything that advertises Finally Free™ will have our branding on it as it was created by and copyrighted by Good Decisions®. Any of your flyers, business cards, testimonials, referral pads, or anything you create will have your branding on it. We would be co-branded. If you are not the branding type and want to assume the identity of a sun out to light 1000 other suns we have all the branded materials (business cards, flyers, posters, logos, etc.) you need ready for you to just edit, print and go.
ONLINE TEACHING OPPORTUNITIES: Yes, these workshops can be taught virtually. We are in the process of creating a gamification platform to teach workshops online that other people can market and fill your workshops for you. Once this is tested and vetted you may be able to teach your participants online from anywhere in the world without having to worry about filling your workshops.
CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS: If you attend 80% of the live zoom calls, receive 80% correct on all quizzes, and meet all learning assessment requirements, you will receive a certification of completion for 25 CEU's from the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA), and 30 CEU's from the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP).
