Happiness and success through learning


Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us

by Daniel H. Pink


Engagement scores are declining worldwide.  Why? Organisations are using management techniques that are out of date and disproven.  This workshop is all about what science knows but organisations typically don't do.  The true path to engagement in the workplace is greater Autonomy, working toward Mastery and a clear sense of Purpose.

Social Networks

Social Network Influence


Do we really have freewill?  How much of our behaviour is a product of our environment and the people around us? The answers may well surprise you. In this workshop we explore just how much influence our social network has in over our health, relationships, the lives we lead and even what we eat.  Then using tested ideas we look at how we can begin to influence and shape the network for the good of all.

Adaptive Leadership - thriving in times of uncertainty and chaos.  


How do some people see the need for change before others?  Why do some organisations fail to adapt and cope with change?  How can we equip more people with the ability to challenge current thinking and look for alternatives?  This session explores how learning from failure and a willingness to change can be the source of even greater success.  The six steps in adaptive change are explored in detail with interactive exercises throughout.

Mastery - the science of achievement & excellence
