Wellbeing Workshops

NEW from Martin Seligman’s “Flourish” – The PERMA Model of Well-Being

Tools, Habits and Behaviours PROVEN to promote Personal, Team and Corporate Resilience and Well-Being.

Earlier in 2020, it was found that poor mental wellbeing is costing UK businesses £45 billion each year and with the increase of concerns about the pandemic, that figure has, almost certainly, risen significantly throughout the year.

In addition to this, research shows that 11 million UK adults took time off due to poor mental wellbeing in 2020 (this figure is as at October 2020), yet only 38% of them felt comfortable being honest about it to their employer, while others cite physical health issues or simply take annual leave to avoid the conversation all together. Most employers said that mental wellbeing is a key priority for them, but many employees don’t feel that it is.

“It’s OK – NOT to be OK”

…or so the currently trending saying states. So there needs to be an acceptance and acknowledgement, without any attached stigma, that we can ALL probably benefit from some Wellbeing and Positivity being spoken into our lives and workplaces right now.

Q: So HOW do we encourage our employees, who we feel need to increase their wellbeing and stress resilience, to attend a “stress” workshop without it being seen as a stigma or a weakness?

A: Enrol the entire team or organisation onto the workshop so that it becomes an “Inclusive Experience” for all of your employees. From the statistics shown above, it suggests that more than 50% of our workforce would benefit from a Wellbeing and Positivity Workshop. (and the longer the pandemic continues, the higher this figure will become)

So by enrolling your entire team on the workshop you are:

  • being a responsible employer in providing for the wellbeing and mental health of your Staff
  • reducing the risk of increased “days off work” due to poor mental health – thereby protecting the efficiency and sustaining your profitable business
  • providing hope and positivity in a covid-world to your employees and their families
  • enabling your staff to spend quality “work time” to learn life-changing, and in some instances, life-saving concepts and principles
  • creating a ‘safe environment’ where your employees can be Honest, Open and Transparent with each other as to how they REALLY feel, which creates incredible team-bonding and self help in the support group
  • creating a culture which your staff will look back on as “that time during Covid when our Organisation offered outstanding support and we all looked after each other”.

It is during times like these when we form platforms on which to build:

  • Personal Resolve and Character
  • Personal Wellbeing and Resilience
  • Mental Safety for the attendees and their families
  • An enhanced awareness of the signs of “pandemic-fatigue” or depression – and a knowledge of how to build resilience against them
  • Memories of the great support the Organisation offered by providing a ‘mandatory’ Wellbeing Workshop – resulting in great employee satisfaction and company loyalty
  • Highly committed Super Teams with a formidable self-support ethos
  • Your new Company Culture and the infrastructure for the “new normal”

When we work under pressure for a prolonged period of time, whether it be caused by COVID-19 or sheer volume of workload with ever critical deadlines – there is a danger that our personal wellbeing and stress resilience will become overwhelmed and this can sometimes lead to even more serious mental illness. 

Don’t allow Covid to Steal your Happiness!

Neuroscience tells us that during times of stress and depression, our brain finds it difficult to create the “Happiness Chemicals” that our body needs to help us to survive the storm. This workshop will reveal the techniques of how we can discipline our thinking through Postivity so as to ensure that that our brain continues to produce the necessary levels of dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin and endorphin which are the prerequisite weapons with which we fight stress, depression and increase wellbeing.

“It’s OK NOT to be OK”…as long as you have a plan to restore your Wellbeing and Mental Health…and this workshop is YOUR plan to do that….

This practical workshop has been designed to address the elements of the PERMA model as we build towards a healthy work / life balance. We will look at how stress can be managed positively (to produce achievement, meaning and relational quality) as well as how to avoid unnecessary dis-stress. There will be space for participants to intelligently assess and reflect on their current well-being. And there will be exercises and habits shared that can facilitate deliberate self-leadership towards “Performance under Pressure”.

Stress Management, Building Resilience + Work Life Balance: Personal Wellbeing

Performance under Pressure: Building Resilience

 “Stress is likely to become the most dangerous emerging risk to business in the early part of the 21st century”… so says the Association of Insurance and Risk Managers.

 Performance under Pressure – Full Day Programme

Tom Peters, the author known for his management books In Search of Excellence and A Passion for Excellence, says it straight out in his preface to Thriving on Chaos:

 “The winners of tomorrow will deal proactively with chaos, will look at the chaos per se as the source of market advantage, not as a problem to be got around. Chaos and uncertainty are (will be) market opportunities; capitalizing on fleeting market anomalies will be the successful business’s greatest accomplishment.”

Being able to constantly achieve peak Performance under Pressure requires us not only to survive – but to actually thrive in an environment of pressing deadlines and target achievements etc.

The Role of Emotional Intelligence in Building our Resilience

E.I. Stress

Emotionally Intelligent: Stress Resilience and Emotional Control

 Covey’s 7th habit challenges us all to take care of ourselves and to become aware of those issues which can reduce our personal effectiveness

Identifying the dis-stress creators and the ‘early warning’ signs of stress and distress is critical to our understanding as to the dangers lurking in our homes and our workplaces. Lifestyle awareness and stress management are the keys to healthy well-being and motivated individuals.

This 7th habit will identify the causes of stress and how we manage them.

The module will include a personal Bio-Rhythm Test using state of the art Pulse sensors and software which will demonstrate what things create stress in individuals and the delegates will learn some stress management techniques – the immediate effect of which will be demonstrated by the pulse sensors and bio-rhythm software screen displays.

How do Effective People ensure that they stay effective and don’t become disillusioned with yet another stressful deadline?

The answer can be found in Covey’s 7th habit – that of Personal Development and well-being…

Can I REALLY control my own bio-rhythms to help diffuse DISTRESS??!

 Identifying the stress creators and the ‘early warning’ signs of stress and distress is critical to our understanding as to the dangers lurking in our homes and our workplaces. Lifestyle awareness and stress management are the keys to healthy well-being and motivated individuals.

What do my emotions have to do with it?

Our brains are incredibly power muscles – but let’s not be too dismissive of the role that the heart has to play with Dis-Stress Management.

Whilst our brain can store the memories of us playing with a cute little puppy, it can also conjure up memories of the last time we stroked a dog and it bit our leg! So even the sight of a cute puppy could send a “stand by to repel borders” instruction from the Brain to the Heart as memories are recalled. The brain immediately starts to produce chemicals to help resist the savage beast and, simultaneously, requests that the heart start pumping these chemicals around the body as soon as possible – this is when we start to feel palpitations.

As these ANS hormones are being produced and pumped around the body at break-neck speeds, our emotions become a lot less controlled. It is during this “fight or flight” stage that Stress and Dis-Stress awaken and start to thrive in the panicky climate that the heart and brain have created between themselves.

Our brain has 3 levels of  hierarchy. Level 1 is where our “fight and flight” feelings live. Level 2 is where all of our Emotions live: anger, love, hate, jealousy etc and Level 3 is where Dis-Stress cannot live, nor will it EVER visit this level.

Despite the fact that our brains are immensely powerful – they can be a little lazy!

It is for this reason why we need to educate our brains to engage the 3rd level of hierarchy where ALL Dis-Stress and Emotionals can be fully managed successfully.

Learning how to manage our Bio-Rhythms and educating our Brain and Heart to work together is the perfect antidote to dis-stressful life balances.
