Personality type and stress, we’re all different and here at PCG we say that’s a good thing, it’s what makes life interesting. It’s also what can make life complicated at work and at home when we’re stressed. Examining your personality and type and stress offers an opportunity to take a look at what might jam your inner gears. What results in stress for you may not be the same for others, we all have different triggers and respond in incredibly different ways to stress. So how do you work it all out? A good place to start is with yourself. Take our free personality test here http://positivechangeguru.com/discover-your-personality-type/ and read on.
Resilience at Work Training: Our New NHS Partnership
Resilience at Work Training With Medical Professionals
We are thrilled to be partnering with the NHS to design and deliver Resilience at Work Training to doctors and consultants working in the health service. We know how hard staff work in the NHS and it’s a real privilege to have the opportunity to support them with our resilience at work training. We’re really looking forward to supporting a team of such dedicated, committed professionals who make a huge difference to the lives of others on a daily basis.
Resilience at work: What’s Involved?
Our resilience at work training will combine the latest research from the world of wellbeing and resilience with positive psychology and mindfulness. We’ll be covering all aspects of wellbeing as well as looking at opportunities to increase flow for surgeons working in pressured environments that demand a high level of focus.
We’ve designed a highly interactive workshop that will provide physicians with an incredibly practical toolkit of strategies, techniques and tricks that they can take away and begin using straight away. We’re working in partnership with the NHS to ensure that the resilience at work training meets the needs of their staff, improving their wellbeing and resilience.
We’ll be using our own research too!
We’ll also be using research from our current doctoral studies into mindfulness, leadership and resilience that are now underway. We’re really looking forward to continuing our partnership and supporting staff in the NHS post workshop with a dedicated suite of after support including personality assessments, articles, podcasts, videos and blogs.
Resilience at Work Training. We’re so thrilled to be partnering with national charity to pilot a brand new course designed to develop happy, resilient teams. Combining resilience and happiness is a smart move, as research demonstrates (think Shawn Achor, Sonja Lyubomirsky, Tel Ben-Shahar & co). We know that happy, resilient teams are able to perform more effectively, recover from failure more quickly, feel more motivated and be way more productive. But why?

Here are 10 things mindful leaders definitely don’t do. [Read more…]
