Need a strategic, positive approach for everyone in addition to mental ill-health and physical wellness programmes?

Traditional wellbeing programmes often target symptoms, rather than causes: ramping up rewards and benefits packages to tackle disengagement, or communicating about an EAP instead of encouraging people to support each other.

We believe that it is time to look more strategically at building wellbeing in our people – focusing on the core elements that boost or hinder wellbeing in the workplace and really help people to thrive at work. It is time to make wellbeing at work more meaningful – for organisations, teams and individuals.

Our wellbeing programme is built around three simple ‘ways to wellbeing’:

Talk about it – using a conversation mat tool to guide team discussions.

Give people skills – through a series of fun and interactive workshops.*

  1. Positive Emotions: Explores the differences between ‘happiness’ and ‘wellbeing’ and the benefits of cultivating positive emotions in line with Barbara Fredrickson’s ‘broaden and build’ theory.
  2. Engagement: Discovers some of our core ‘strengths’ – things we excel at and are energised by. We explore Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s concept of ‘flow’ which has a positive effect on our wellbeing, and most often occurs when we use our strengths.
  3. Positive Relationships: Explores the importance and benefits of relationships at work. This workshop explores three methods to build ‘high quality connections’ and overcoming ‘corrosive connections’.
  4. Meaning: The deepest and most thought-provoking of the series, this workshop explores what makes life worthwhile. In line with the work of Viktor Frankl, we look at ways to experience and create purpose in our lives.
  5. Achievement: Encouraging achievement by looking at the benefits of an optimistic mindset, and how this can be developed to increase our sense of achievement. Practice using Rick Snyder’s theory of ‘waypower’ to find tangible and easy routes to reaching our goals.
  6. Resilience: Draws our learning together to relate it specifically to overcoming stress. We look at how we can minimise negative emotions and behaviours in difficult situations and develop more effective reaction styles.

 

These workshops are packed with interactive activities, reflection questions and practical tasks, designed to keep wellbeing front of mind. They help individuals reflect on how they can take action to maintain and improve their wellbeing on a daily basis.

Make it everyday – using a notebook tool to extend and embed learning.

* Workshops can be run in-person as lunch N’ learns or half days, or 45 minute online workshops for geographically-diverse teams of up to 500 people. We also offer our workshops in train-the-trainer format for internal roll-out.
