Applying positive psychology 

Grounded in optimism and practicality, positive psychology focuses on helping you find and grow your strengths.

‘Positive Psychology takes seriously the bright hope that if you find yourself stuck in the parking lot of life, with few and only ephemeral pleasures, with minimal gratifications, and without meaning, there is a road out. This road takes you through the countryside of pleasure and gratification, up into the high country of strength and virtue, and finally to the peaks of lasting fulfilment: meaning and purpose.’

Martin E.P. Seligman, Authentic Happiness

Developing emotional agility

Learning to read and manage the full spectrum of your messy, marvellous emotions helps make you a calmer, wiser human. Accepting and labelling your feelings gives you a source of emotional data that enriches and strengthens your decision-making.  

‘Emotional agility is the ability to be with your emotions with curiosity, compassion, and especially the courage to take values-connected steps.’

Susan David, Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life

Being flexible and adaptive

We never oversell. We start with whatever’s front and centre for you or your organisation. The small thing, the urgent thing, the scary thing you can’t fully articulate YET. Once you’ve got that sorted, we'll be there if you’re keen for more. For the next thing, the other thing, the thing that emerged out of the work we’ve just done. You call the shots. 

'The only decision we get to make is what role we’ll play in our own lives: Do we want to write the story, or do we want to hand that power over to someone else?'

Brené Brown, Daring Greatly
