We spend our youth developing the skills that lead to achievement and success in the workplace and at university. But do we ever learn how to have a good day at work? How to thrive and find strength and fulfilment in the process? While stress in the workplace is responsible for billions of pounds lost each, it remains impossible to qualify the quality of life lost along with it. Rooted in neuropsychology and behavioural science, this course conveys the essential models of thinking and feeling which underlie how productive, resilient and performant we are in the work place. We address what it takes to change our perception and find the resilience and psychological performance 'sweet spot' to ensure we thrive as well as achieve at work and at school.
