Course Outline
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. Customer expectations are rising. Legislation is tightening. You are probably going to be audited or inspected one day soon. Outside of work there are family pressures. And society. And the traffic. And hoodies. 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. Andy 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 aim?
Too many people are simply ground down by the relentless pace of life. We feel great sporadically but most people have their eye on the weekend or a holiday in a wishing-their-life-away sleepwalk.

‘The Art of Being Brilliant’ aims to get you to feel brilliant more often. Life’s too precious to be sleepwalking through it. This is a wake-up call!

We like to think of ‘The Art of Being Brilliant’ as an energiser or a simple reminder. Ultimately, the aim is to rejuvenate and inspire, with the impact felt at home as well as work. Andy calls it ‘the science of the bleedin’ obvious’…yet if it’s so obvious, why are so few people doing it?

Key themes (some or all of…)
Positive Psychology, ‘busyness’, emotional intelligence, 2%ers, energy, influencing skills, rapport, 4-minute rule, comfort zones, attitudes, ‘mood hoovers’, 90/10 principle, belief systems, the science of happiness, resilience, destination addiction, habits.
