Resilience and mindset change workshops for businesses;

Understanding stress and creating positive change

This year, on top of all the work that Aquarius are doing on behavioural change in relation to alcohol, drugs and gambling; we are offering our partners the chance to engage in some low cost, high impact mindset change workshops to combat ‘Covid fatigue’.

The online workshops focus on building resilience in the face of uncertainty and planning positive changes – something we all need in these testing times. The course is relevant to all roles and can help with clearing space for strategic thinking, as well as improving day to day operational performance.

These workshops are useful for any businesses looking to support their people in times of unprecedented uncertainty.

They provide an awareness of the human response to stressful times and equip delegates with the skills to take responsibility for their own wellbeing and make positive steps towards behavioural change.

  • Workshop 1 - Exploration - Exploring stress and resilience (1.5 hours)

    • Understanding why we stress and how it impacts us
    • The role of observation and curiosity – sensations, perceptions, feelings, thoughts, behaviours
    • Exploring whether we can harness the stress response and utilise it in a meaningful way – mindset change
  • Workshop 2 - Action - Forging positive habits and integrating coping strategies (1.5 hours)

    • Getting started with change
    • Positive and negative momentum
    • The habit cycle – breaking bad habits and creating good ones
    • The cycle of change – making change

Understanding the role of curiosity and engaging with stresses in a exploratory way should really help with any situations. I currently suffer with stress and anxiety and this will help a lot.

Thank you. The course was very interesting, and to have it as a session with colleagues – creates a space of peer support and that we are all human with personal struggles!

To give an insight into impact, we delivered throughout December for a large group of Mental Health Charities. We trained over 150 people (10% of their workforce) who rated the course with over 90% satisfaction scores (rating each learning objective completion on average at over 4.5/5 using Kirkpatrick’s Reaction Evaluation metric).

At a recent conference we attended on workplace wellbeing, Sir Cary Cooper noted that based on the premise that there is a defined correlation between psychological wellbeing and workplace performance, per individual the estimated financial benefit of improving psychological wellbeing by a conservative amount is £1,201 (Robertson, 2011). If we assume that these workshops represent a conservative contribution to improving psychological wellbeing for attendees; this delivery provides a significant return on initial investment. As we approach the end of the financial year, we are confident that this course would represent a quick, easy and effective use of unspent but budgeted funds.

Prices are available on application. Our income is invested in our existing charitable services. Thus, providing our services the dual benefit of supporting employees and serving the Corporate Social Responsibility agenda.
