Primal Health Coaching and Simplex Health Intern (Unpaid)
Title: Primal Health Coaching & Simplex Health Intern
Reports to: Senior Director of Partnership Operations
Our Mission: Radically improve the health of Humankind
Our Core Values: Simplex Health strives to embody the following values and to apply them to every aspect of how we run our business, including how we interact with each other as teammates and leaders. These values also apply to how we interact with and continue to inspire our clients and strategic partners:
We Inspire Each Other
You are an important part of our team and together we make a collective intention to uplift and commit to one another. Through cultivating genuine, transparent, relationships, we create an environment that encourages individuals to dream big, take risks, and be bold. We aim to inspire and commit to everyone we touch. This sense of commitment and care sets the stage for a culture of accountability, where we hold ourselves and each other to the same high standards, taking the ownership necessary for achieving our goals.
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
We Always Learn and Grow
We at Simplex Health strive to be continual learners and to expand our abilities as people and as an organization. We educate ourselves, remain curious, and use evidence-based research to challenge our current understanding. We see mistakes and failure as great teachers and learning opportunities. When we stay engaged in the world with a growth mindset, it creates the right environment for us to thrive and make a meaningful impact on each other and on the world.
Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance. Proverbs 1:5
We Think Big Picture What we do day in, day out, how we do it, and the decisions we make- shape who we are as a people and as a company. The details are super important, AND should always be guided by our wide perspective and an understanding of how we are impacting each other, our clients, and our business. Before making any major decision, ask yourself:
• Does it help us grow? How?
• Does it answer “how are we different and why should you care?”
• Is what I’m working on duplicatable and transferable (ie can I duplicate it and apply to other situations)? How?
• Does it challenge the status quo?
• Does it inspire?
• Does it tightly align with and advance our mission? How?
• Can it be more humanized and relatable?
• Does it unite us? How?
• Does it solve a problem? How?
Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. I Corinthians 13:12
We Challenge the Status Quo: We are inquisitive by nature. We are courageous! We are not afraid to go against the grain in our search for truth. We always question conventional wisdom- it’s how Simplex Health started- it’s what we do.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
We Cultivate Health and Vitality: Being alive in a body is an incredible, temporary experience. Even though at times we feel pain and face challenges, our next breath is not guaranteed and is a HUGE gift. We experience EVERYTHING through our bodies, including thoughts, emotions, spirit, and our inspiration. We see health and vitality as the foundation for living a life that is happy, fulfilled, present, and productive.
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. 3 John 1:2
We Embody Integrity: We communicate with transparency and face conflict head-on. We do this with the understanding that we respect each other and recognize that we are on the same team working toward a unified noble mission with shared goals. We don’t compromise our morals or integrity no matter the context. When challenging scenarios arise, we approach them with honesty and trust that we are all holding the highest intentions, are committed to our values, and are making best efforts.
Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31
We Simplify the Complicated: We believe that complex problems don’t always require complex solutions. By simplifying the complicated and offering digestible, scalable solutions, we can pay more attention to the things that mattermost. Simplicity- it’s the word that inspired our name - we make cultivating health and vitality simple.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6
