The Science of Wellbeing

There are multiple approaches to enhancing our wellbeing, but which ones will work best for you and your team?  In The Science of Wellbeing we explore multiple dimensions of wellbeing and resilience, looking at approaches to implementing each.

This might be a fleeting look at a small number of approaches in a 60-90 minute talk, an interactive day of experiments, or a multi-week program with before and after measurements.  Which ever approach is right for your team or event, you can be sure that there will be something for everyone to build their wellbeing and resilience at work.

What would we cover?  There are multiple models of wellbeing, and we base our approach on the work of Martin Seligman, the founder of the modern empirical study of wellbeing.  He suggested five key areas that define wellbeing, and in so doing, provided a useful working framework – and that’s where we start, so expect topics including:

  • Engagement and attention – how to stay engaged, especially in the face of difficulty
  • Emotion – the impact of mood and emotion on our work
  • Achievement and mindsets – we all like to achieve, and from the impact of learning and growth mindsets, to personal accountability, at work the result matter.
  • Relationships – we are fundamentally social creatures, and great relationships make a huge impact at work
  • Meaning at work – finding the meaning in what you do can improve your resilience, wellbeing, and success
  • Physiology – although not part of the original model, there is strong evidence that physical and mental health are reciprocal

Combing the latest thinking, including the new science of stress, with practical approaches to implementation, our goal is simple – make a positive difference in the workplace that benefits each individual involved, the people they work with, and the outcomes they deliver in their role.
