FAQs

Is your name really Comfort?

Yes. I come from a family of Coach Comforts (my dad was a champion NCAA swim coach, my brother was a high school baseball coach, and my mom was a star physical therapist). My coaching isn't usually THAT physical, but as the photo to the left shows, I do love getting people upside down (and therefore outside of their "comfort zone"). 

Why do you focus on wellness?

Two reasons: 1) We must bring out best selves to this world-changing work, and as a movement, self-care isn't our strong suit.  2) Supporting each other on physical and mental health opportunities at work can build stronger teams. 

Where and how does this happen?

  • Trainings: In-person preferred
  • Coaching: In-person or Hangout/Skype
  • Consulting: Customized organizational development or "expert" pair of hands 
  • Speaking & Conferences: available for lunchtime or keynote addresses

Using Well-Being to Develop Culture

Means to an End: better Wellness leads to better Culture

It's important for folx to take care of their physical and mental health, hence the rallying cry of "Self-Care!" But we say it's more like, "Team-Care!"


None of us can do Self-Care alone anyway. It's important that we build systems, policies and practices to support each other (most of us spend, at MINIMUM, 1/3 of our waking hours at work). 


How do we do that? By using physical and mental health discussions and tools to address the stickiness of team health (red and blue combine for purple). Comfort Consulting customizes interactive sessions to improve your work culture immediately. 


WARNING: These practices might lead to stronger health, greater empathy, irrepressible joy, effective teamwork and raucous laughter. They might also bring up deeper issues in your organization (such as, if we take more breaks and vacations, how do we hold each other accountable for the work getting done?). These problems are solve-able, and worth addressing.

You can improve your work culture today.

Outlive the Bastards

“One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. ... Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.”
Edward Abbey
