The Sleep for Corporate Leadership & Productivity Course

Module 1: Sleep Shapes Productivity

There are so many aspects of productivity – motivation, cognitive function, energy level, and physical coordination, to name just a few. The good news is that all of these factors are improved by high quality, optimal sleep. The bad news is that over 35% of Americans aren’t getting the sleep they need on work nights, which creates problems in the workplace. Sleep problems can contribute to a poor workplace culture, expensive accidents and injuries, and ultimately increase costs. Learn about the scope of the problem across a wide range of work environments, from the office setting to transportation and manufacturing. Complete the assessments for personal insights on the impact of corporate sleep programs.

Module 2: Sleep for Leadership

To be an effective leader requires being at the top of your game, in every domain. This is where sleep can be part of your success formula. In this course you will learn how sleep impacts critical leadership skills. First, leaders must see various perspectives, learn from them and creative problem-solving, then make decisions. Human factors are also shaped by sleep, from the ability to understand other’s emotions as well as your own, to having good impulse control, to making moral and ethical decisions that benefit the whole team and company culture. You’ll also learn skills to calm the racing mind that interferes with sleep. Bring sleep experts to your corporate office!

Module 3: Basics of Sleep & Circadian Rhythms

Each stage of sleep has a function that serves us well at work, everything from cognitive performance, physical agility, to emotional intelligence. Learn how normal sleep functions, and then what symptoms result from either insufficient sleep, or sleep disrupted by a sleep disorder. There’s also the issue of our circadian rhythm, that 24-hour fluctuation in function that makes us sleep at night, and be alert during the day. This is a critical piece to understand as you design your shift work schedule, and determine who will work at what times of day. Both sleep and circadian characteristics change with age, another consideration when designing a sleep positive workplace.

Module 4: Optimize Your Own Sleep

This module is all about how to make sleep more restful, so you can bring your best to the job, and to the rest of your day! Over 35% of Americans don’t get sufficient sleep each night, are you one? Unfortunately, after several nights of insufficient sleep we lose insight into how impaired we are during the day. In this unit you’ll first identify how much sleep you do best with and which domain is most impaired by sleep loss for you. We will combine this information with circadian practices to create a personal sleep plan. Next learn how to create a relaxing sleep environment. It’s a perfect time to rebuild your sleep and have much better days! 

Module 5: Optimal Shift Scheduling

Sometimes it’s essential to have 24-hour operations. When that’s the case, how can you organize the shift work schedule to optimize well-being? In this module learn some of the challenges and consequences of shift work, for both the individual employee and the corporation. There are a wide variety of shifts, from 8 hours to extended shifts, from stable schedules to rotating. Learn considerations for each of these schedules, and what may be best for your corporation from a sleep, productivity, safety and health standpoint. This is essential information for a corporate leader in a 24-hour industry, particularly if there are safety risks present. Enjoy the benefit of sleep experts in your corporate office!

Module 6: Assisting Employees with Sleep Disorders

It’s another 35% of adults who have some type of sleep disorder. Some of the most common are obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, and restless legs syndrome. There are many others which are less common – a total of 58! Learn red flags of the most common sleep disorders, and unique challenges each of them bring to the workplace. The risk of sleep disorders is different for different populations, which may also be impacting your corporation. Then learn about how employee programs can decrease sleep problems, and thereby improve health and performance. These programs often pay for themselves in a better team environment, improved employee health and productivity. Use sleep to boost company revenue!

Module 7: Considerations for Shift Workers

Shift workers are working at a time that our circadian system tells us to sleep. This can make it difficult to stay alert and perform as well as we’d like. On the other hand, during the day, shift workers often find it hard to get the sleep they need. Shift workers are also at increased risk of other health conditions, so need extra screening. Fortunately, there are strategies that shift workers can learn: how to make sleep more restful, and increase night-time alertness. There is also a role for management in not only designing evidence-based schedules, but in designing the jobsite environment to promote alertness.
