HOW TO… BE BETTER TOGETHER
Agar and Dr Vikki Barnes are delighted to join forces to deliver this exciting virtual event – continuing our series of ‘how to’ virtual workshops
‘We all know that times are strange; Coronavirus is changing everything that is familiar to us’ – Insights Thought Leadership, March 2020
Times have, indeed, been strange and the resulting impact on our wellbeing is well- documented.
The restrictions designed to prevent the spread of coronavirus are having a profound impact on the way we live our daily lives, and in turn, on our mental health.’ – How has the coronavirus impacted our mental health, Mind, June 2020
Happiness is something that humans share a desire for and something we all aspire to. In a culture of mental ill-health, happiness loses our focus and attention if we don’t make time for it. In this series of workshops, Dr Vikki Barnes explores what it means to be happy and the role of the brain and neurochemicals that help us to feel good; they are based on the cutting-edge science of Positive Psychology.
Together we will start to explore that happiness doesn’t have to be difficult. It doesn’t even have to take long to reach. In fact, the path to happiness is within us already, we just need to know where to put our efforts. There are many well-researched, evidenced- based techniques that can be woven into our day to day work and personal lives. These are simple and effective ways to become the best versions of ourselves. And we know that happy people create thriving organisations.
This is an informative and interactive 1.5 hour session, with the aim of finding new ways to embed positivity in our lives, our relationships, our wider communities, organisations and cultures so that we are able to ‘stay connected’. We will do this by practising a positive, growth mindset and learning strategies that are simple, enjoyable and meaningful.
You have exactly one life in which to do everything you’ll ever do. Act accordingly.’ – Colin Wright
As humans, we begin forming relationships from the beginning of our lives and invariably, some are healthier than others. Only as adults can we take a step back and reflect on those relationships and realise which are most beneficial to our wellbeing and why; this is particularly important when we think about our teams.
We know that we can’t control the behaviour of others, or how others treat us. What we can control is how we behave ourselves or how we respond to others. It’s within our power to adapt and flex our thinking and acting in order to help have the best experience of relating. In this session we’ll examine our relationships with others and look at ways to improve our social network and the support we give and receive.
The Workshop is aimed at:
- Organisational leaders with a remit for the wellbeing of people
- Those facing the challenges of maintaining and enhancing personal, team and organisational morale
- Those seeking a better balance in all areas of their life.
- Explore Positive Psychology
- Examine your tribe (your team)
- Practice gratitude and kindness
- Share positive stories
