BeeThere are many starting points

let’s find the approach that works for you

My online programs are convenient and affordable first steps into a research-based conversation about healthy work systems.

You might bring a group of colleagues into an online program to start a conversation in your workplace.  I offer a free, one-hour call with leaders bringing groups into my programs, to talk through my program customization handout.

Your group’s readiness and capacity will determine how fast you move and how far you travel.  I can support your group’s progress in a number of ways:

  • coming to speak with your group in person,
  • collaborating with your group via an online Integration Workshop (alumni only),
  • custom designing a program for your group (online or mixed format),
  • collaborating with your leadership group over 6 to 12 months, on retainer,
  • custom designing and implementing a Great Work by Design organizational change initiative with you.

Send me an email and we can talk through options.

BeeSeminars & Workshops

shorter conversations, custom-designed for your group

It’s one thing to envision what’s possible in your work system.  It’s another thing to facilitate a constructive conversation inside your organization. Entrenched dynamics and personal histories can get in the way. Sometimes an outsider brings a perspective just different enough that it frees people to imagine something new for themselves.

Seminar prices range from $500-$5000, plus travel expenses, depending on the length of the conversation and the location of your group.

Workshop prices range from $5000-$10,000, plus travel expenses, depending on the size of the group, the length of our conversation, and the location of your group.

BeeOnline Integration Workshops

support for focused implementation projects

Participants learn the WHAT and WHY of health-promoting work in my online programs.  The HOW comes with specific implementation projects.

Integration Workshops are for alumni groups who are ready to plan and implement a specific change.  In the span of five focused weeks, we can move ideas into action.

For example, an alumni group might wish to integrate risk-factor identification and/or health-promoting practices into:

  • climate committee projects
  • quality improvement processes
  • safety analyses and protocols
  • department policies and procedures
  • organizational reward structures

To start, you send me a note about a potential project and your ideal timeline.  If an Integration Workshop is a fit for your purposes, we’ll have one week of preparation, then one month of focused collaboration.

Week 1: Preparation

Together we’ll refine scope and focus. You’ll send me the list of your alumni group members. Then I create a private online space with resources specific to your project.  We’ll schedule weekly 1-hour phone calls.

Weeks 2-5: Collaboration

We’ll think together via live phone calls and asynchronous written conversations in your private membership space.  We’ll focus on integrating health-promoting concepts into your organization’s unique structures, policies and procedures.

This option is available only to alumni of Be Aware & Be Healthy because the short timeline depends on all participants sharing in the foundational concepts and language of health-promoting work.

Integration Workshop prices begin at $5000.  Prices go up if timelines go beyond 1-week preparation & 1-month collaboration.

BeeCustom Programs

format and content customized for your group’s goals

One of the most powerful approaches to change is place-based.  When these health-promoting conversations take place within working groups, at your location, something powerful happens.  We initiate new norms for behavior while introducing new concepts and language to describe what’s happening and what you want to have happen.

If your group is interested in learning about healthy work, I’d be happy to talk with you about a customized program, designed for your people, taught at your site.  Or we can custom-design an online program (or mixed format) for your group.

Prices depend on the format, length and location of your program.  A 10-week, in-person, program for 15 participants at your location in Southern Wisconsin would start at $15,000.

BeeRetainer Packages

consulting services for your organization as you need them 

If you have been working in this area for some time, you likely have many ideas about how your group might move forward.  The only trouble is that you have a full-time leadership role already, so these ideas linger on a long list of things to do when you have time.  But that extra time seems to never show up.

That’s where I can help.  I can support you as you think through your options, make a game plan, write proposals for resources or bring your group together to discuss, plan and implement change.

I can be your sounding board, brainstorming partner and collaborator – an hour or two, or half-day, month after month, until momentum builds.

My hourly consulting rate is $300.  Retainer packages run 6 to 12 months with a minimum of 15 hours per month.  Depending on the length of the contract and the number of hours per month, I discount my hourly rate anywhere from 5% to 20%.
