Why Most Wellness Programs Fails to Inspire Behavior Change
Did you know? Most people who join a health & wellness program come away disappointed. Perhaps that is the reason why the health & wellness industry has failed to inspire the kind of change that moves the world towards a healthier future. And there’s only one reason why these programs fail – the ineffectiveness of the health & wellness techniques in use.
Now that we know about the reason, here’s why it happens.
Lack of People-OrientedWellness Coach Training Programs
It has been proven time and again that only self-motivation can bring lasting behavioral change in an individual, hence it is critical for a health & wellness coach to understand the neuroscience of coaching before they start practicing in real. But most wellness coach training programs that train people for becoming health & wellness coaches are information-oriented instead of being people-oriented. Thus, failing to impart the importance of building self-confidence in one’s clients before introducing them to the training regimen.
Simply preaching health & wellness theories to the client has never worked and never will because it’s not one size that fits all. A wellness coach needs to understand the internal strengths of his/her clients and guide them instead of handhold towards a better life.
Lack of Evidence-Based Wellness Coach Training Curriculum
Health & wellness coaching is not an abstract art, instead it’s a science-based, evidence-based methodological process. But most online wellness coach training programs lack the tools and techniques that can guide prospective clients with a step-by-step process. This lack of clarity results in confusion and conundrum as the coaching progresses and leaves clients disenchanted with the whole process.
Lack of Experiential Learning in Wellness Coach Training
Apart from proper orientation, tools and techniques, health & wellness coaching is something that is learnt through real-world experience. This experience comes from working with people who command vast experience in the field and can guide students with case studies and real-world example scenarios. However, the aspect of experiential learning is almost completely absent from most wellness coach training programs.
