About Us


aboutThe Empowerment Code offers a unique approach to wellness and productivity management that can be implemented in any work environment where policy makers can commit to paradigm shifts. Based on how the immune system makes decisions to sustain mind-body wellness, The Communication Culture Code™ focuses on the Empowerment of an organization to assess how its productivity strategies may be triggering or exacerbating chronic illnesses.

Research in Psychoneuroimmunology suggests the immune system makes several hundred thousand decisions every few minutes to maintain a delicate balance between under and over responding to internal and external mind-body challenges. Rather than relying on the brain as a central administrator, the immune system independently identifies challenges, and makes decisions based on the contextual conditions it encounters. The process is fluidly adaptive and self-regulating.

The Empowerment Code  is the first worldwide model that teaches wellness and productivity management based on proven decision-making principles of the immune system. Following ten central tenets, our training model applies immune-system wisdom to assess and enhance the Communication Culture of a work environment.

10 TENETS OF  The Empowerment Code™

  1. Empowering mandates in an organization are more conducive to wellness than incentives to modify lifestyles.
  2. The wellness and productivity cohesiveness of an organization is determined by its cultural language.
  3. The cultural language of an organization is either empowering or disempowering.
  4. Empowerment is learned, rather than an inherent trait of leaders.
  5. The individual freedom and authority of Empowerment should be introduced gradually.
  6. Self-worthiness determines the amount of Empowerment that an individual can assimilate without self-sabotaging or compromising wellness.
  7. No amount of external incentives can sustain individual wellness without Empowerment.
  8. Paradigm shifts are difficult to implement because of entrenched fears, rather than due to executive incompetence.
  9. Anticipated Joy  is perceived as more stressful than Known Misery
  10. Job satisfaction is more directly related to individual Empowerment than to monetary gains, incentives, promotions, and fringe benefits.
