Health care costs are skyrocketing, employee sick days impact productivity, and the overall health of the U.S.workforce is alarming.

Topic #1

One size does not fit all: Knowing your unique nature puts you in the driver’s seat for your health

Your mind-body constitution (your nature) and your environment are absolutely unique to you! That’s why sweeping generalizations about the “right” kinds of food to eat and the “right” kind of exercise don’t apply to everyone. In this practical presentation, Rakesh Sethi explains how your nature is unique, as well as the nature of all things surrounding you, including the foods you eat. He discusses why it’s important to aim for balance. When you create balance, you create health. Imbalance eventually can manifest into disease. For example, if your car’s warning light comes on, do you fix the problem – or cut the wire so you don’t see the warning light while the problem worsens? When it comes to health, we can immediately resolve the issue – or mask the symptom. Rakesh presents practical strategies for you to make daily adjustments and motivates you to actively participate in your health to live a balanced, healthy life.

In this presentation, you will:

  • Discover what makes you unique
  • Better manage your stress and anxiety
  • Tap into your inner health potential
  • Learn how to slow down your aging

Topic #2

A new perspective: Learn a dynamic model to participate in your wellness every day

In conventional medicine, you are either healthy or unhealthy. This static, “on/off” model to health doesn’t accurately represent day-to-day changes in your health and wellbeing. In this eye-opening presentation, Rakesh Sethi shares a dynamic model, illustrating how your health fluctuates every day, depending on how you feel physically, how you feel emotionally, and what you eat and drink. Armed with this insight, you can keep a finger on the pulse of your health – seeking balance and quickly addressing any imbalance. Rakesh inspires you to change how you think about your health and empowers you to participate in your own wellness every day to live a healthy life.

In this keynote, workshop, or breakout session, you will:

  • Understand the difference between static and dynamic health models
  • Discover what makes you unique
  • Learn how to actively participate in your own wellness

Topic #3

You are your first doctor: Food is your first medicine & the kitchen is your first pharmacy

You are what you eat. It’s true! For more than 5,000 years, Ayurvedic medical science has explored the relationship between what we eat and achieving physical and emotional balance. This ancient medical system has shown that mind-body balance and the foods we eat are intricately related. That’s why, depending on your specific mind-body constitution, you should consume certain foods to be healthy – and avoid others. In this fascinating presentation, Rakesh Sethi introduces these enlightening concepts and explains why food is your first medicine, and the kitchen is your first pharmacy. Rakesh will help you understand your unique mind-body constitution and motivate you to choose the right foods to gain balance – and true wellness.

In this presentation, you will learn:

  • The interaction between 6 tastes and your body constitution
  • How to use food as your medicine to ward off the first sign of illness or disease
  • How to use the kitchen as your pharmacy
  • How to make seasonal adjustments in the foods you eat to achieve optimal wellness

Topic #4

Knowledge is power: Understand personality strengths (and weaknesses) to forge cohesive, productive teams

Multiple personalities make up a work team. The creative person is talented but scattered. The idea person bursts with great ideas but doesn’t follow through. The skeptic seems negative but, once sold on an idea, will get others to buy in. We all have strengths. We all have weaknesses. When personalities clash in a team environment, conflicts arise and productivity drops. While the Myers Briggs test and DiSC assessment can shed light on individual personalities, they can lack the deep insights to change team behavior.

Rakesh Sethi brings a fresh approach to truly understanding our individual – and team – strengths and weaknesses. Combining knowledge of the ancient Ayurvedic medical system with today’s real-world business environments, Rakesh works team magic. Watch the light bulbs go off as everyone gains insight into the unique mind-body constitution of each team member – including their strengths and weaknesses.

Using Rakesh’s practical techniques, teams will replace miscommunication, turmoil, and perceived agendas with understanding, respect, and true teamwork. Individuals will rise above their egos to collectively become part of the team’s consciousness, with a clear focus on the team’s mission. And diversity will become the strength of your team!

In this presentation or team workshop, attendees will:

  • Understand their unique nature and the unique nature of each team member
  • Learn each others’ strengths and weaknesses
  • Shift their attitudes to respect, understand, and successfully work with every person on the team

Wellness in the WorkPlace Can Be a Reality!

Rakesh Sethi’s presentations offer a fresh, practical message to create a healthy workplace.
