What to expect in this session:
Your wellbeing 6-pack. RISING STRONGER is built around a wellbeing and resilience ‘6-pack’.
Adaptability. With the new normal in charge, it’s important to be able to unlearn and relearn a mindset to match the challenges you face.
The power of NOW. The best way to inoculate yourself against stress is to calm your thinking. Therefore, we include a smidgeon of mindfulness like you’ve never heard it before.
Words create worlds. It’s so easy to slide back into old habits. We introduce a few words that will help you to rethink your thinking.
Drop the guilt. A recurring theme of all our training is to do less and be more. To reboot, it’s often a matter of switching off and back on again. The same principle also applies to human beings.
Impact. We’re all superheroes pretending to be normal. Pants on the outside is a fashion faux pas so, instead, RISING STRONGER is about rediscovering your mojo.
Getting over it. We all carry mental baggage and it isn’t half easy to develop a habit of grumbling. To have your best year ever, you need to learn to let go
Our programmes are based on the research findings of Dr Andy Cope. Andy flipped psychology and instead of looking at illness, he looked at wellness. His Loughborough PhD (the first in the UK) was about employee engagement, with a specific focus on elevated states of wellbeing. Andy examined those at the top of the wellbeing spectrum (at Art of Brilliance, we call them the ‘2-percenters’, the small group of staff who are flourishing) and sought to answer 3 questions:
- Who are the 2-percenters?
- What are they doing that allows them to flourish?
- What can we learn from them that we might apply to the wider staffing population, so they might flourish too?
Our programmes take in the wider areas of Positive Psychology (purpose, strengths, resilience, self-care, etc), but Andy’s original research provides the DNA of our portfolio. This gives our programmes a strong academic grounding, but our ‘uniqueness’ actually comes from bringing the messages to life through humour, story-telling and common-sense principles.
