Thrive at work

Don’t just survive your workplace, learn how to thrive and enjoy it.

Next workshops: Saturday 25 May 2018, 1:30-5:00pm and Saturday 11 August 2018, 1:30-5:00pm. Brisbane.

Would you recommend your workplace as a great place to work? If you are unhappy at work, sometimes changing your job is not an easy option, or you feel changing jobs will mean working for a different organisation with the same sort of problems. Make the choice to go beyond surviving and learn how to thrive regardless of your environment.

What does thriving look like? You are trusted and empowered to do good work; supported and empowered to speak up and contribute to your fullest potential. You understand why your job matters and get meaning and enjoyment from it; welcome and seek to introduce change and innovation. Your health, safety and wellbeing are paramount; creative thinking and proactivity are valued.

Thrive at work will help you handle the countless situations that challenge you – large workloads, looming workplace changes, poor leadership and management, rapidly assimilating new information, aggressive personalities, being excluded, lack of respect and trust, receiving criticism, office politics, unrealistic expectations, not seeing progress, and feeling unsupported.

Do you believe you work in an unhealthy organisational culture? This experiential workshop helps you understand what’s causing this sentiment and develops your toolkit for responding, allowing you to be at your best and sustain that level.

Culture is the set of behavioural norms and unwritten rules that shape the organisational environment and how individuals interact and get work done in that environment

Workplace culture and climate.

Workplace culture is the collective way of doing things within the organisation and the expectation of what behaviours are ‘in’ and what is ‘out’. It’s the shared understanding of attitudes, values, and behaviours – shaped by the messages we receive about what is important, what people have to do to be accepted, fit in and be rewarded. Workplace climate differs and can be a contributing factor in driving culture. Climate is the collective experience of systems, practices and processes that exist within an organisation and include: career and development opportunities, reward and recognition, role clarity, performance management, vision and strategy, senior leadership, and customer satisfaction.

Pathway to thriving at work.

When we are just surviving it pays a toll on mind, body and emotions – breaking down health at all levels. The pathway is designed and tested to help you be in your optimal state: centred and present, aware, accepting, clear, supported (from self and others), responsible, and solution oriented.

Make the change.

To prepare your brain and nervous system for optimal performance, you learn a gentle and energising movement program designed to release tense muscles, improve brain and body communication, create a state of active relaxation, and improve concentration, organisation and co-ordination.
