Portland, OR, Sept. 10, 2018 -- WebMD Health Services today announced the launch of a new well-being solution, meQ Empower, designed to help employers create an agile, adaptive, and high-performing culture by enabling managers and leaders to build resilient and agile teams and organizations.

Delivered through a partnership with meQuilibrium, the new offering expands Health Services’ well-being solutions with a program that builds organizational resilience through emotional intelligence, systems thinking, and negotiation and mentoring skills for team and project leaders of all levels. Through meQ Empower, employees learn the specific behaviors that drive team and organizational agility that are distinct from being a resilient individual.

meQ Empower is the component of meQuilibrium’s data-driven system that customizes and optimizes individual, leadership, and team resilience-building programs. It is available as an add-on to meQuilibrium Engage.

Research shows that most executives feel their companies aren’t ready to meet team agility needs, and say they need to strengthen organizational leadership.

“There is a gap in leadership training that most traditional programs don’t address,” said John Harrison, Senior Vice President of Customer Experience at WebMD Health Services. “meQ Empower focuses on cultivating the important and powerful habits and behaviors that are needed to not only be an effective employee but a resilient leader that helps change workplace culture, enhance engagement, and improve performance.”

The meQ Empower solution features a multi-tiered curriculum that trains participants to model resilience, mentor resilient teams, and cultivate a resilient workplace. The program helps leaders align individual with corporate values, instill meaning and purpose, improve focus and motivation, and foster innovation. The meQ Empower solution is seamlessly integrated into the WebMD Health Services platform and accessed via a full suite of desktop and mobile solutions.

“A leader’s engagement is contagious, and to spread it, leaders need high levels of emotional intelligence, systems thinking, empathy, and purpose. Resilience delivers all of that,” said Jan Bruce, meQuilibrium CEO and Co-founder. “Our partnership with WebMD Health Services will enable even more people to learn the skills and insights that are needed to think and behave like a leader, and make a measureable impact on their organizations, while accelerating their own professional development and satisfaction.”
