We offer the following training sessions:
- Navigating in the new reality
Managing your own energy is now more important and urgent than before, but for most of us it hasn’t gotten any easier. In this training we will go back to basics and provide practical models, exercises and insights that will help you learn to navigate in this new reality. Tools to take or keep control of your own energy and to be even more aware of your positive influence on others.

In this training we therefore focus our attention on effectively organizing our activities to recharge our energy. Using models on energy and energy management and the themes of sleep, nutrition, exercise and relaxation.
- Energy management 2 – Coping with stress
Goal of this training is to learn how to better deal with stress. What is stress, how does it work physiologically and neurophysiological? What makes stress functional at times? How can you recognise signals in yourself and in colleagues and what is your own influence on the stress that you experience?

‘Live’ digital coaching
Lifeguard offers online 1-to-1 coaching.
The coaching will cover energy- and stressmanagement, in tune with the coachee’s personal circumstances. Topics like individual concerns and fear negatively impact both one’s productivity and immune system and will be included as part of the reflection. Our coaches are able to address specific topics such as physical health, emotional disbalance, mental focus and resilience and relational issues. But also work-related topics can be addressed, like dealing with uncertainty, prioritizing, distance-cooperating with colleagues and managers in this new reality of working away from the office.
Some questions may include:
- I’m frightened and feel I may panick, how to cope with that?
- I constantly feel stressful, how can I manage this?
- What is good nutrition for a healthy life and work?
- How to productively work from home?
- How to stay focused when working from home?
- How can I best combine my work with having my family home too?
- I feel lonely now that I don’t meet my colleagues, how best to cope?
- My parents are vulnerable, how can I best take care of them now?
Our coaching sessions will be held in a meeting via an online video conferencing tool. The coachee will be briefed upfront how to make use of the conferencing tool. Our coaches can book a maximum of 8 calls of 45 minutes of 6 calls of 60 minutes per day.
Coaching for managers
Managers play a key role in the amount of stress employees perceive. They also have to deal with their own questions and concerns about these unusual circumstances. At the same time, they have to make sure the business is run as normal as possible. Managing their own health and vitality, their impact on the team and running the business puts them under a great amount of stress. Lifeguard therefore offers two specific sessions to support your management level:
1. Online training about managing at a distance
The training ‘Managing at a distance’, for up to 12 executives, consists of two sessions. We start with a work session of 1,5 hour, consisting of theory and practical tips on optimizing their positive impact on the sustainable performance of their employees in this special situation. Managers can discuss with each other and the trainer how to increase their personal impact and ask specific questions about it. After 2 weeks an intervision session of 1 hour follows to reflect on the personal goals together and to discuss specific themes in depth.
2. Coaching by a Lifeguard senior coach
In 1 on 1 sessions with a Lifeguard senior coach, more in-depth personal matters can be discussed that include issues such as personal health and vitality, team’s vitality and optimizing working away from the office.
Some teams are used to working remotely. But what if you are forced to work from home? Or if, due to circumstances, team members can no longer meet physically? What is the effect on team energy, and what tips, tools and working arrangements can nonetheless be used to leverage the full potential of the team?
The team coaches of Lifeguard help teams stay connected, mind their recovery and prevent energy leaks, thus facilitating optimal performance under the current circumstances.
Team energy determines business results and is measurable and manageable, even under remote working conditions. The team is provided with tools to get started on this. Lifeguard supports team performance using the following tools:
- The basic theory of energy management
- Insight into own team energy with the Net Vitality Score (NVS)
- Necessary actions to increase team NVS
- Optimal connection and communication under the current work circumstances
Team coaching is given via online sessions of 120 minutes each, with up to 12 participants.
