OnCalm Corporate Programs

Practical, real-world stress control and resilience programs for high pressure & high performance, workplace environments, industries, roles & employee teams.

In an ideal world, we live and work in a stress-free environment.

But this is the real world – not an ideal one!

There are industries, environments and roles, where we can’t escape stressful situations – they are part of the job – we want to minimize these stressors, but they are always there.

With OnCalm Corporate Programs, our focus is on giving you the tools so your team can learn to not just “manage”, but build resilience and “control” the feelings of stress we all have – and NOT let the symptoms of stress control us.

In a high performance, high pressure workplace, we can’t avoid the stress – but we can control it.

STRESS IN NUMBERS

[show-testimonials alias=’statistics’]

STRESS MANAGEMENT AND BUILDING RESILIENCE, IN A HIGH PRESSURE, HIGH PERFORMANCE WORKPLACE IS DIFFERENT

Because of the unique nature of the high performance & high pressure environment, “traditional” methods of stress management, such as the more thought and behaviourally focussed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), often struggle for effectiveness.

In the high performance workplace, stressors cannot be avoided, and so solution that addresses the physiological nature of stress is required.

The scientifically proven techniques at the foundation of the OnCalm Corporate Programs, teach you to actually make physiological changes to the body, which neutralise the physical symptoms of stress.

You may not be able to change the environment that causes you the stress, but you can change the way your body reacts to it!

Using techniques that switch on the body’s parasympathetic nervous system (our Relaxation Engine), we can now physiologically control our body’s reaction to the symptoms of stress.

Just like a box of “anti-stress pills”!

Switch on More Calm, More Energy, More Concentration or More Sleep, whenever you need them most.

OUR BODY HAS A PHYSIOLOGICAL SYSTEM FOR RESPONDING TO STRESSFUL SITUATIONS

When it comes to stress, physiologically, our body has two “engines”:

our “Stress Engine”, or the sympathetic nervous system, elicits our brain to release the stress hormones our body needs to make the physiological changes, in response to a highly stressful situation (the “fight or flight” concept); and

our “Relaxation Engine”, or our parasympathetic nervous system, which when activated, releases the neurotransmitter chemicals into our body, which act to immediately neutralise the effects of the stress chemicals, and to restore our body to balance.

However, when we live and work, in a high pressure / high performance workplace environments or role, our body’s sympathetic nervous system, or Stress Engine, never switches off.

This is called “Chronic Stress” and the physical, mental impact of this on our bodies, can be life threatening.

Serious illnesses such as heart attack, stroke and cancer, as well as serious psychological illnesses including clinical depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, all linked in research studies to exposure to chronic stress.

THE REAL WORLD, QUANTIFIABLE BENEFITS OF CORPORATE STRESS MANAGEMENT AND RESILIENCE PROGRAMS

It is estimated that in the US, stress and the related illness, absenteeism and presenteeism, costs organizations as much as US$300 billion a year.

In a recent US absenteeism study, for every TEN employees:
  • ONE is absent
  • THREE are present, but unproductive due to stress, and
  • SIX are working productively.
In a high performance/high pressure workplace environment, the relationship between employee well-being and engagement, productivity, and profits is clear, with:
  • a reduction in staff absenteeism and the resulting health costs;
  • increase in job performance – higher efficiency and effectiveness;
  • improved morale, employee engagement and retention

In further quantifying this, according to a Towers Watson 2011/2012 survey, organizations with highly effective productivity and wellness strategies, had industry adjusted profits that were US$132,000 greater, than organizations without.

About Evan Jones

As they say, I’ve been around – been there and done that, both personally and professionally – the incredible highs and the “challenging” lows!  A number of years in “corporate/consulting life” – but many more in start-ups – both mine and others.

It’s hard to put into words, so I’ll keep it short!

Yes, I’ve got a few degrees under my belt – but I don’t think we ever stop learning!

An Engineering Degree and a Master of Business Administration (MBA), both from Monash University in Australia.

I’ve spent enough time in corporate/consulting to understand corporate life, in manufacturing (automotive and FMCG), ERP software technology, residential building, franchising and digital media.

Geographically corporate/consulting has taken me throughout Australia, Asia-Pacific, US and Europe.

Start-ups (especially technology) have always been my “passion”.

I have done one as an employee (ERP from start-up through to NASDAQ listing), and four of my own (across consumer web, SAAS, VR).

Plus several more as advisory/board member/mentor.

Yes, I’ve also had a life!

Working and exploring my way through 25+ countries, 2 incredible children, marriage, divorce, family health issues (too much cancer, clinical depression).

25+ years of “on-and-off” transcendental meditation, pranayama, nutrition, fitness, training.

These days meditation, nutrition, fitness, training is my life – so it’s pretty much “on”.
