We live in a manic society where most people’s lives are on permanent fast-forward. The modern workplace is typified by a never ending regime of restructures and budget cuts. Uncertainty prevails. The teaching profession is especially fraught. You are probably going to be ‘Ofstedded’ one day soon. Standards of pupil behaviour and parental support seem to be on the decline. The only things on the up are Government initiatives and number of hours worked! Outside of work there are family pressures. And society. And the traffic. Oh, and don’t forget the weather!
‘The Art of Being Brilliant’ provides an antidote to the crazy world that typifies modern Britain. This workshop uses cutting edge research to explore how you can be you, brilliantly. We will share some of the ‘secrets’ of Positive Psychology, focusing on learning new habits of thinking and behaviour that will sustain personal ‘brilliance’. It is about the ‘whole you’ and, as such, is applicable in and out of work.
The content is taken from the latest research into positive psychology, wellbeing, flourishing and emotional contagion. Our team calls it ‘the science of the bleedin’ obvious’… yet if it’s so obvious, why are so few people doing it?
Too many people are counting down to half-term, accidentally wishing their life away. ‘The Art of Being Brilliant’ is a big wake-up call. Life is a short and precious gift and you are in the perfect profession to make a difference in the staffroom and classroom. If you decide to go for it, your positivity ripples out into the community. The aim therefore is to challenge current habits and ways of thinking, to re-energise and enthuse staff for the challenges that lie ahead.
In plain simple English, we want this to be the best INSET you have ever had. Whisper it quietly, but it might even change your life?
