Wellbeing & Resilience

Positive wellbeing is good for people in organisations and good for organisations.

Wellbeing is our ultimate goal – we all want to improve our health, achieve our goals, and live meaningful and satisfying lives.

What we personally consider to be important to our wellbeing varies from one individual to another. Fortunately, the field of behavioural science, and more specifically positive psychology, provides us with a sound basis on which to build our personal, team and organisational wellbeing goals.

We experience positive wellbeing when our access to support and resources is equal to or more than the challenges we face.

We know that there are many factors that contribute to our wellbeing and many ways to build our wellbeing. Integral to building wellbeing for individuals and organisations are the domains of psychological resilience, engagement, meaning and purpose, strengths-based approaches, ethics and virtues, relationships, mindsets and physical health.

Resilient leaders & teams

Learning to remain a strong leader in the face of uncertainty, frequent setbacks and new challenges is a part of the current context. Being able to guide your team and organisation through difficult times includes recognising neurobiological responses to stress, understanding how your thoughts affect your emotional reactions and building a repertoire of coping strategies for you and your team.

Developing a growth mindset will contribute to your success in appraising adverse events effectively, avoiding negative attributions and blame, providing positive support and reducing stress across your team and organisation.
