Workshop - Maximising Effectiveness

The workshop takes a proactive, preventative approach and delivers a tailored, evidence-based, high-impact intervention that aims to improve mental and physical health, work-life balance, stress management and resilience. It incorporates ThinkWell’s unique and highly skilled use of cognitive behavioural coaching to achieve measurable long term change.

This workshop is often combined with email coaching and our Personal Feedback Questionnaire™. The questionnaire provides participants with objective feedback about their stress levels, work-related morale and satisfaction with work life. These are all factors that have been shown to influence wellbeing, happiness and sustainability.

The workshop provides practical information and skills in relation to:

  • time management – managing paperwork and emails, saying no, procrastination, overcommitting
  • stress management – guilt, dealing with excessive demands, stress
  • work-life balance – time for family and self, dealing with multiple demands
  • improving effectiveness – working to your best, peak performance
