Hiring the right leaders and talent is one of the most difficult things to get right in an organisation — it can truly make or break your workplace culture.
In the past, hiring decisions were made based on skills and experience, but in the future of work, the X-factor is actually a candidate's unique attitudes and motivations.
Before, it was impossible to accurately spot that X-factor (unless you rely on inherently biased 'gut feel') and this often leads to poor talent acquisition outcomes.
But with our Ranking Tool you can easily short-list batches of candidates based on specific X-factors that are proven to predict whether someone will thrive in a particular role or culture.
In short: F4S saves HR and recruiters money and hundreds (or thousands!) of hours when hiring top talent that can help bring your team to that next level of success.
Outcomes with F4S:
Fast and easy way to spot top talent within your organization
Quickly shortlist candidates for interviews based on ideal role fit
Pinpoint talent that will thrive in key roles in innovation or business leadership

Why health coaching is important
You might be wondering 'Wait, but isn't health coaching just a pyramid scheme for weight loss programs?'. While it's true that some Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) programs are marketed as wellness coaching, there are many genuine coaches who impact peoples’ lives. Otherwise, there is no correlation between health coaching and MLMs.
Put simply, a health coach is someone who helps people make sustainable lifestyle choices. They guide, support, and encourage their clients to build a healthy lifestyle that works for them. Health coaches are also important allied health partners who can work with medical professionals to achieve better outcomes for their patients.
Research shows that health coaching can have important clinical improvements for a variety of chronic illness risk factors, such as blood pressure, fasting glucose, body weight, BMI and cardiorespiratory fitness². Plus, another study found that 85% of the risk of chronic disease is due to environmental factors³. By helping people carry out beneficial health behaviors, coaches could potentially save healthcare systems millions of dollars down the line.
Health coaching matters on an individual level, too. After all, health isn't just about the absence of diseases but rather, living to your full potential. Research shows that self-described healthy people are 20% happier on average⁴. Plus, they tend to have better career outcomes and earn more money⁵.
When you're healthy, you can show up as the best version of yourself in every part of your life – whether it's with your teammates in the office, or in your personal relationships and family.
An optimal health coach is someone who helps clients make intentional decisions about their wellness. Sometimes referred to as integrative health coach, they look at the big picture of how you want to feel every day. They are different from a personal trainer or a nutritionist, as they typically won't tell you what workouts to do or how many calories per day to eat (unless they have additional qualifications). However, they will be able to help you break goals down into achievable steps.
Is there evidence for health coaching?
Yes, research shows that health coaching can help individuals, organizations and medical providers achieve better health outcomes.
How can a health coach help me?
Working with an optimal health coach can help you gain control over health issues including:
Physical symptoms such as chronic inflammation
Chronic disease and medical conditions (in addition to working with professional healthcare providers).
Overcoming food challenges (such as sticking to FODMAP or another form of elimination diet)
Blood pressure levels
Sexual health and fertility care
Muscle loss due to aging
