 01  What is wellbeing?

Quite simply, it is the ability to feel good and function well so you perform at your best. The science of wellbeing, or positive psychology, is the study of what constitutes excellence in individuals, workplaces and communities. Professor Felicia Huppert, a wellbeing researcher, says psychological wellbeing is the opposite of ill-being and features of wellbeing include: positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning, accomplishment, resilience, emotional stability, vitality, optimism and self-esteem. Martin Seligman describes wellbeing as having five pillars (PERMA) that you need to work on improving – positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning and purpose and accomplishment. As a positive psychology practitioner, I translate this wellbeing research and provide clients with tools, practices and activities to implement at work for greater optimism, engagement, team collaboration and positive change.

Effective teams need to build trusting and supportive relationships and connect well. Each interaction counts so its important to cultivate high-quality connections with others at work - interactions that are energising and uplifting that propel us to take action and get things done.  The Cultivating Collaboration program teaches participants skills to develop high-quality connections (HQCs) that energise and enable them to perform well and succeed. These skills can be immediately implemented at work to build HQCs. You can also join our online HQC community of practice – HQCCoP, where you can learn best practice tips, tools and ways to make HQCs a reality at work, from a community who are passionate about building positive relationships at work.
