Staff Wellbeing Toolkit

Stress and fatigue are increasing in the workplace, with many staff feeling overwhelmed by their professional and personal responsibilities. Our wellbeing programs provide innovative and practical strategies for improving wellness at work.

Content can include: how emotional intelligence links to wellbeing, organisational, group and personal wellbeing factors, latest research on preventing burnout, boosting mood and energy at work, overcoming fatigue and boredom, how your personality links to stress and wellbeing, key psychological skills for maintaining wellbeing, the latest on mood nutrition and techniques for boosting positive brain chemistry. Staff also have the opportunity to develop personal wellbeing plans and build team-based strategies for maintaining wellness at work.

Stress & Overload Toolkit

Many staff report stress and overload, often leading to fatigue, burnout and reduced performance at work. This program explains why overload occurs in certain occupations, explores how the nervous system changes and how to address symptoms such as exhaustion, sleep difficulties, afternoon energy slumps, lowered mood, comfort or uncontrolled eating, concentration problems, poor memory and interpersonal difficulties.

Optimism Skills Toolkit

30 years of psychological research suggests that the skills of optimism (not positive thinking) improve mood, performance in school, sport and work by helping people persist in difficult situations. This program explores various approaches to developing optimism, including psychological skills, brain chemistry, personality links, music and physical exercise.

A great program for teachers, child-care workers, counsellors, rehab professionals and welfare staff or anyone that needs to help others develop optimism skills using proven methods.

This evening program introduces ways for parents to help their kids (and themselves) build wellbeing by exploring research-based strategies that can be implemented immediately.

Feedback from past attendees confirms that kids experience fast and effective improvement in managing fears, concentration, school problems, fatigue and friendship problems using the strategies we present at our parent seminars.

Personality and Wellbeing Seminar

When you want to improve teamwork, having an understanding of personality can assist people to get the best from themselves and each other. Using tools such as MBTI and NEO PI, we provide staff with an outline of the dimensions of personality, communication differences, social styles, stress triggers, team balance and career issues.

Our aim is to look at differences rather than pigeon-holing people and we get terrific feedback from staff who have attended this program.

This program has been particularly helpful for people from a non-sales background who need to influence others in their work e.g. counsellors, teachers, rehab professionals and health workers.

Mood-Mapping Toolkit
