Positive emotions are valuable for helping refuel our brains. If we are looking to stay motivated, we know positive emotions help us achieve our goals.

Positive Language & Strengths-Based HR practices

We know that wellbeing in the workplace is a game-changer. Happy people are more resilient, more productive & more engaged, and this has proven to increase the bottom line. Where traditional HR Policies often outline what 'not to do' and focus on a deficit model, a positive psychology approach applies to all elements of the HR process – including language.

In conversation with Dr Denise Quinlan

Throughout a flourishing career, her research has been published in International academic journals and several edited volumes. Denise shared her insights in an equally candid and considered chat, touching on an array of concepts including psychological safety, ruthless prioritisation and radical acceptance. When asked why she is in the wellbeing space, Denise responded, “the deep, deep, truth is that you teach what you need to learn.” As a self-confessed ‘recovering pessimist’, it is perhaps Denise’s humility that allows her to share views on wellbeing psychology in such a relatable way.

Book Review: Counterclockwise by Ellen Langer

COUNTERCLOCKWISE: A proven way to think yourself younger and healthier Ellen Langer has to be one of my favourite researchers, psychologists, writers, and people.  I love her work and she is an amazing person.  To sit down with her over a peppermint tea (me) and martini (her) was a delight. We spoke for two hours about life and challenges, mindfulness, personal traumas and professional highlights. Diving into her books is still a pleasure; like diving into the mind of someone who challenges thinking, removes the blinkers, and wonders 'who put the box there in the first place’.  Ellen’s research and [...]
