Personal coaching by app
The health coach franchise AUTONOM TALENT recommends its 3-Step-Method (“measure potentials → develop talents → ensure performance”) as a highly effective stress and resource management strategy. The method involves an assessment of the individual stress level and talent profile, resulting in a customized activity plan for developing one´s whole personal potential. Feedback interviews accompany the activities in the following fields:
- exercise and sports
- self management
- sleep and recovery
- break management
- energy and nutrition
- stress management
- potential development
The Diary app complements the AUTONOM TALENT 3-Step-Method perfectly, working as a personal motivation coach. The app supports the pursuit of personal goals by reminding users to take scheduled activities and exercises and by providing practical tips. An individual app setup ensures highest efficiency and lasting effects of the feedback interviews, the app stores individual setups. The app stores a history of all activities, exercises and tips, documenting and displaying progress and success. This permanent coaching by app ensures lasting lifestyle changes, and thereby increases in energy and motivation.
Whenever businesses and scientists team up, the resulting synergies beat all reasonable expectations. Netural und AUTONOM TALENT cooperated with the MedTech Cluster of the Business Upper Austria regional development agency, develop the Diary app as an inter-branch project.
