What behavior change model does your wellness program use? If you can answer this question, can your employees? Intermountain Healthcare explicitly identified the behavior change model that is used to operationalize LiVe Well, their employee wellness program. This change model has been converted into an innovative, simple method called You Can Change Anything. Whether employees want to increase physical activity, save money or manage stress better, this model increases their confidence and ability to make any healthy lifestyle change. You Can Change Anything is taught to employees and family members in a highly interactive workshop. Easy-to-understand education, real-life examples and useful tools provided in the class empower participants with a growth mindset and new skills. Participant support continues after the workshop through social media, on-going education, coaching and weekly words of encouragement. The workshop is wildly successful with the most common feedback: Everyone should take this. After completing this session, participants will be able to: (1) Understand the value of teaching how to change behaviors to employees; (2) Describe a mini-version of the You Can Change Anything workshop; and (3) Understand what participants value most from this type of workshop.
