Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

As a culture, Americans are tired and too many on the verge of burnout. Our education elects to change this. RHRW specializes seminars for leaders, teams, and employees. Our seminars and retreats: • Cultivate an invigorated sense of community within an organization • Build authentic connections between team members • Equip individuals to utilize no cost, high yield practices at home and at work, which reduce cortisol • Empower organizational leaders to establish a culture of Restorative Wellness that sets lasting change into motion Restorative Wellness creates a paradigm shift in the hearts of individuals and in the cultural norms of organizations by equipping employees to embrace a pace of life that is vibrant, transformative, and sustainable.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Vantage Point

Vantage Point makes rest simple and strategic. It fuels God’s best work in us and through us. Vibrancy transpires in churches and ministries when leaders and their teams run with passion and rest on purpose – routinely refueled, refreshed, and replenished. Too many have grown accustomed to “running on empty,” forfeiting their best self and shortchanging those they lead, love, and serve. Vantage Point introduces low-cost, high-yield restorative rhythms that equip God’s people to navigate 24/7 from a place of strength, sustainability, and joy.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

The World Health Organization recognized burn-out in the 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases as an occupational phenomenon. Burn-out is a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress. It is characterized by three dimensions: • Feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion • Increased mental distances form one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job • Reduced professional efficacy (ability to produce) Evidence-informed Restorative Wellness Initiatives are primed and ready to both prevent and tackle burn-out through educational events for employees, compassionately addressing concerns and realities that drive people to despair and discouragement. RHRW comes along side organizations who want to impact: • The work their employees produce • The citizens their employees become—as fully engaged parents, neighbors, civic leaders RHRW does this through a Restorative Wellness Initiative. New on the wellness front, the impact of Restorative Wellness is showing significant benefits. Our understanding of Change Theory and the science behind social norms shapes the wellness initiatives we offer and the impact they deliver. Change Theory reminds us that new insights do not illicit change in most people, but new social norms do. Wellness, vibrancy, and full engagement require connection and community for organizations and people to thrive. Our employee seminars are fast-paced, fun, and energizing, ideal for organizations committed to living out their mission through employees who are holistically healthy and primed to give their best. Through education and advocacy, we want the tide to turn. We believe the RHRW message makes rest simple and strategic, meeting critical, universal needs of all people and all organizations today.

When it comes to traditional wellness programs, RHRW believes the status quo must be challenged. More than food and fitness, organizations must equip their staff to explore the root issues and core beliefs that drive our overload and exhaustion. Exploring the idea of “Run Hard. Rest Well.” casts a new vision, creates a sustainable culture, and lays a foundation for existing wellness programs to flourish. People today are tired – and often deeply depleted. One of the most pressing societal needs is for organizations to help their employees minimize the impact of cortisol overload generated by chronic exhaustion. The constant “on” of 24/7 creates an unsustainable pace, positioning individuals for cortisol overload. The constant stream of cortisol is destructive, impacting employees emotionally, relationally, and physically. The price tag is staggering for organizations, and equally detrimental to families and communities, leaving many workers disengaged, anxious, irritable, depressed, and vulnerable to addictive behaviors. Most employer’s wellness programs have two components: lifestyle management and disease management. Lifestyle management targets people with health risks around smoking, obesity, blood pressure, and cholesterol and supports them to reduce these risks and prevent the development of chronic conditions. Disease management helps employees who already have a chronic disease take better care of themselves by looking for gaps in their care, reminding them of needed tests, and offering support and suggestions for at home care. Traditional wellness programs can reduce health care costs and absenteeism due to health issues. There is a debate, however, over actual ROI. Medically-focused wellness program are important, but this is just the beginning. More is needed. Addressing social, emotional, relational, and physical (sleep) needs of employees through a Restorative Wellness Initiative: • Offers a low cost wellness initiative, with a high rate of ROI based on research and employee evaluation • Addresses critical EQ skills through educational events, seminars, and half-day retreats • Builds a culture where employees thrive and organizations excel

Brenda Jank, CEO & Founder, is a thought leader on the forefront of restorative wellness and strategic rest. Through her personal practice, writing and advocacy the momentum for our organizational is significant in the next five years. Additional staff have been hired in 2019 and a facilitator training, professional development, and credentialed-licensing are at the top of our organization's strategic plan. Long-term planning includes the development of a Strategic Wellness Institute.

Program Effectiveness will be measured in two ways. 1) Our post-retreat evaluation, which consists of a 6-Question One-Minute Assessment and 2) On-line assessments taken by the staff of organizations – one assessment before the retreat and two after the retreat. This data is analyzed by Nate Lowe, PhD. From 2018: Dr. Nate Lowe PhD, led our research team. We are thrilled by the statistical results. According to these surveys, the growth that people are reporting is statistically significant. Through a comparison of the surveys pre- and post retreat, our participants are reporting: • That they are experiencing less guilt about taking time to rest • That they have an intentional plan on how to rest • That they feel equipped to help others rest well • That they are encouraging others to take time to rest more often

Since our inception, we have served nearly 150 organizations and approximately 9,000 individuals. Interest and commitments from ministries, schools, nonprofits and businesses is on the rise. We have grown to a staff of 3.5 FTEs and will deploy an additional 6 facilitators by the end of the calendar year to respond to inquiries for our education programs. A Rest That Works seminars and retreats: • Cultivate an invigorated sense of community within an organization • Build authentic connections between team members • Equip individuals to utilize no cost, high yield practices at home and at work, which reduce cortisol in ways that are simple, quick, and inviting • Empower organizational leaders to establish a culture of Restorative Wellness that sets lasting change into motion • During seminar and retreat experiences, team members:  Relax, have fun, and laugh while gaining invaluable new insights  Experience freedom to redefine “rest” in a way that is life-giving  Enjoy hands-on, real-life Restorative Wellness practices, which include:  Anti-gravity breaks  In-depth personal reflection to foster self-awareness  Authentic connection with team members  Brain science experiments  A taste of “peace and quiet”  Identify unexpected roadblocks to rest and the impact they have  Create a personal take-home list of strategies and goals Follow up support and encore seminars solidify learning and personal commitment, while keeping a spotlight on Restorative Wellness for lasting organizational change. Restorative Wellness creates a paradigm shift in the hearts of individuals and in the cultural norms of organizations by equipping employees to embrace a pace of life that is vibrant, transformative, and sustainable.
