What’s the problem…?
For the first time in 2017, work-related stress, anxiety or depression accounted for over half of all working days lost due to ill health in Great Britain according to figures released by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
This is not just in the UK, it’s the same all over the world.
Yet productivity and commercial performance are only part of the story. Increasingly, talented people are drawn to organisations that promote the wellbeing of their people.
In the face of all these strong commercial reasons for investing in employee wellbeing, what we are seeing more and more is the moral justification, with more clients saying “it just feels like the right thing to do”.
If stress is the problem, then what’s the solution? How do you support your people to be healthy, happy, fulfilled and sustain peak performance in the long term?
Companies who invest in wellbeing programmes find the following benefits…
How does this work in practice?
‘Thriving’ is a cultural change programme which works on a personal, inter personal and organisational level.
It equips individuals at all levels with the skills they need to attend to their own wellbeing so they can thrive no matter what’s going on around them.
It creates a permission space, language and framework for people to have real conversations and support each other.
It creates a positive wave of contagious wellbeing across all levels of the organisation by identifying changes to positively shift the wellbeing culture.
The foundation of all our working relationships is openness and trust. We take the time to develop relationships that are deep, collaborative and impactful.
The key to our success is our track record of moving people from ‘knowing’ to ‘doing’. The Thriving model enables people to gain the capability and the confidence to make personal positive changes.
The programme for every organisation is unique, taking into consideration the current situation and culture as well as the desired impact.
We follow a simple 3-step approach:
Start with a reality check by listening carefully to fully understand the current situation. Be clear on the intention of the programme and co-create a clear vision of success.
Design a plan which will achieve the intention in the most efficient, cost effective and sustainable way. Commitment and positive role models at all levels in the organisation.
Baseline measurement, feedback on improvement, collect and analyse data, measure the return on investment. Compelling case studies and awards.
In addition we want to work with you to make an even wider impact. For every corporate licence you use we will work with you to give a licence to someone who needs it.
Mark stood out to me as someone who was going to help me to focus on looking forward rather than looking back. He has been a fantastic coach – he very quickly made me feel at ease. His approach is to listen and ask questions that basically allowed me to form my own conclusions – with the occasional prod or push from him. I have only had six sessions with Mark but it feels like I have known him a long time, his style is welcoming, thoughtful and approachable.
Mark quickly understood our culture and helped us crystalise the factors impacting the wellbeing of our people. He rapidly built trust and quickly got us to a healthier and happier place individually and as a team. Working with Mark is collaborative, fun and impactful.
When it comes to stress, resilience and well being, Mark has made it his mission to become a subject matter expert and this platform is the culmination of that drive to be the best in the area. The Thriving Coaching Model works well with individuals who are keen to be the best they can be whilst maintaining their wellbeing. Mark’s message can be accessed when convenient and is thought provoking and action orientated. You are in the safest hands with Mark who is a master who takes utter care of his clients’ experience. I have no hesitation recommending Mark and this programme.
“Mark did a Thriving keynote speech at the Manager Milestone event, the feedback was great, not alone the best we had on the day but the best we’ve ever had”
Being a Thrive a champion has enabled me to be more productive in work, more attuned to signs of stress in others, both at home and in work. I’ve found difficult situations that previously would have frustrated or worried me easier to manage. I am essentially a better version of the pre Thriving me, both physically and mentally. The opportunity to learn how to ‘attend to my own oxygen mask’ and then share this knowledge with family, friends and colleagues has been wonderful. I can’t recommend Thriving enough.’
