- A behavior change approach powered by Hummingbird
- Personalized support

The Coaching Model
Using the principles of stage-based behavior change and Positive Psychology, our model meets people where they are in their readiness to change and are designed to ultimately help participants think through issues and come to their own conclusions through a collaborative problem-solving model. The coach helps participants to consider their options and choose a direction, and then supports them in the implementation of their decision.
LifeSynch offers participants unlimited access to their personal coach via a password-protected customized website. Participants can also choose to talk to their coach by telephone. Through this one-on-one relationship, individuals will receive guidance on setting goals and designing a personal plan of action to meet those goals, as well as ongoing coaching, support, and motivation for as long as they are actively participating in the program.
LifeSynch provides coaching to promote and improve employees' health or we can develop a custom program to meet your organization's needs.
