I am a life coach focused on supporting and empowering spouses of high achievers in medicine, finance, tech, and law. Which HR officers would be best to collaborate with on spouse support programs?
The wellness programs I have been involved with are usually founded through grassroot efforts and presented to the HR department.
My experience has been with peer support in military and law enforcement, where the stress and risk take their emotional toll on spouses and partners.
Knowing that HR operates first with a budget, I would approach the CHRO with the fiduciary facts and benefits to implementing this type of wellness plan. Then address the employee's benefit, and finally, recruiting.
All the best,
I've worked in created several wellness and health coaching businesses, selling to corporations to serve employees or members of health plan. From my experience, good old fashioned networking would probably work best for you given the very personal nature of life coaching.
I would start with people you know, people who can point you to specific people, or people who know you well enough to introduce you directly. If you'd like a few networking tips, set-up a call, and I'll share some practices that have worked for me. (I'm actually giving a seminar on networking to Harvard post-docs in May.)
