PEOPLE WELLBEING IN ORGANISATIONS
I am a professional coach and trainer specialising in the wellbeing and resilience of people in the workplace. Alive and Thrive Wellbeing Limited specialises in coaching that provides personal, science based positive psychological interventions that enable those who we work with - executives, senior and middle managers, and other employees - to cope with the challenges they experience from anxiety and stress, particularly in the workplace.
We help our clients resolve the anxiety and stress that gets in the way of life and work. We provide before and after measures of staff wellbeing. The immediate feedback provides individuals with their own wellbeing profile and how they have progressed following our intervention. We can also provide a holistic and anonymous before and after measure of organisational wellbeing that supports related strategies and policies.
Working strategically with executives we help them to tailor the most appropriate intervention to improve individual and corporate wellbeing. This might include training, workshops, and a structured coaching programme based on the latest neuroscience and psychological findings, underpinned by an understanding of the body chemicals and elements that promote wellbeing.
Key strategic interventions improve attendance, retention and motivation, which positively impacts on individual and organisational performance, sustainability and wellbeing.
We also cover specialist areas around diversity and inclusion, and employee engagement.
