The Art of Being Brilliant

Course Details

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, 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.

Our team calls it ‘the science of the bleedin’ obvious’…yet if it’s so obvious, why are so few people doing it?

This course will:
Challenge current habits and ways of thinking.
Re-energise and enthuse teachers.
Apply the principles of positive psychology at home as well as work.
Have access to cutting edge input.
Steer clear of big words.
Help delegates be happier and more positive...
