Investing in the development of your leaders is essential.
Leadership development is important to help organisations survive in the increasingly uncertain world in which we operate and live – that’s why all organisations invest in it.
Going the extra step and providing your leaders easy to implement tools to help them facilitate organisational change is enlightened.
Organisational change might be driven from the top but meaningful and sustainable change and the creation of positive cultures requires access to information across all levels – this is what moves organisations from surviving to genuinely thriving.
Organisations are made up of individuals – by giving your people the tools to train their brain just like we train our bodies – you will be supporting individual wellbeing and helping your organisation to thrive too.
WHAT is it?
The Positive Practices Toolkit is a digital toolkit that helps organisations create positive cultures and implement a proactive approach to building psychological wellbeing – across entire organisations – and in a way that doesn’t add unnecessary burden or complexity for managers and HR professionals during already challenging times in our VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world.
As with all our work, the toolkit is grounded in science, applying positive psychology and neuroscience, and provides evidence-based practices to inform, support and empower individuals and teams. The short but powerful sessions help facilitate positive leadership, empower positive choices, and build positive cultures and greater individual and organisational wellbeing.
An essential resource in an uncertain and everchanging world, the toolkit:
Neuroscience has shown us that if you can raise a person’s level of positivity in the present, their brain experiences what is called a happiness advantage – that is, your brain at positive performs significantly better than at negative, neutral or stressed. Your ability to make positive decisions and to ‘access and utlise’ your intelligence rises, your creativity rises, your energy levels rise – in fact – every single business outcome can improve.
Positive psychology and neuroscience research has shown there are many practices we can implement in our daily life that lead to increased positivity and improved mental and physical wellbeing. This is important in the good times – and essential in the tough times. Series 1 of the Positive Practices Toolkit contains 24 sessions – providing participants with information and activities that will help them to:
WHY is it important?
Applying practices that improve our wellbeing isn’t a one size fits all approach and a variety of tools need to be offered and encouraged across entire organisations, (and not just to select groups), to achieve meaningful and sustainable organisational and cultural change. Evidence-based practices that improve psychological wellbeing are like a restaurant buffet, even though all the food can nourish us, some will be more appetising (and agreeable!) to us than others. The Positive Practices Toolkit provides the what, why and how to implement multiple applied positive psychology practices – acting as a ‘wellbeing buffet’ – it helps participants find practices that resonate the most and have the greatest impact on them – facilitating increased application to boost and build psychological wellbeing.
Beyond protecting your brand identity and business integrity by looking after your people and creating positive, healthy cultures – significant evidence exists supporting the correlative link between wellbeing, and engagement and productivity at work. Evidence also shows that what is good for wellbeing, can be great for creativity and innovation – which we all need to activate and facilitate if we’re going to not just survive but thrive in this increasingly complex and everchanging world.
HOW does it work?
The Positive Practices Toolkit is a series of 24 mico-modules (10 minute presentations) that have been fully narrated (incl speaker notes for self-facilitation if preferred), and providing a handout with each session that guides participants in applying and developing the relevant skills and positive practices through a simple activity. The toolkit is particularly effective for periods of remote working and for teams whose members are geographically distanced, as the topics are designed to fit easily within existing online team meetings or through short online sessions for interested staff.
The series can be offered to managers looking for ways to foster wellbeing and connection amoungst their teams, or can be facilitated by HR Professionals inviting participants to join sessions they are interested in. An Implementation Guide outlining different approaches is provided with purchase.
A key component of the toolkit is enabling participants to not just listen to the short presentation and complete the science-based activities, but to share experiences and insights on the activity – helping to increase connection and counteract potential feelings of isolation and anxiety, as well as to deepen learning.
This final step in each session also enables a ‘real-time wellbeing engagement survey’ via a final polling slide, equipping managers or HR professionals facilitating the sessions to quickly and easily identify:
As a resource that can be made available to your entire organisation, this amount represents a reduction in pricing which we’re offering during this difficult time of COVID-19 because we want to make it available to as many organisations as possible – to help as many individuals as possible – helping to counteract the challenge to mental health and wellbeing being experienced on a global scale.
We’re in this together.
The Positive Practices Toolkit pricing is per organisation and is currently just $3,500 for all 24 sessions.
