My company Co-Work - Center of Motivation - wants to contribute to people living healthier lifestyles in Denmark by educating health professionals in motivating people to live a healthier lifestyle.
I'm running a company in Denmark thats focused on educating health professionals in Motivational Interviewing (MI). MI is a special designed coaching style thats primarily designed to help people find their motivation to change unhealthy lifestyle to a healthier lifestyle.
Educating health professionals in motivating people is in our view a neglected area. The focus in educating health professionals is primarily focused on giving them a lot of information that they can inform others (cleint/citizens) of. But information is exactly just that: information. Information is not motivating in itself. Information alone doesn't change peoples lifestyles. What change peoples lifestyles is to help them think hard and deep on their values and how they want their life to be. And then help them find their ressources to find ways to fulfill their values - that is what Motivational Interviewing is designed to do and that is why it is very effective to enhance peoples motivation. And that is why we want to change the focus from information to motivation.
We would like to get in contact with other peoble/companys/organisations in Denmark that is working on the motivation side of lifestyle changes. We would like to discuss ideas in ways to focus on motivation instead of information in health promotion.
