This targeted program acknowledges the challenges of beginning teachers and provides helpful mental models to thrive and not just survive in the first few years of teaching.

Topics covered include:

  • The power of finding meaning and purpose in your work
  • Active self-management through informed and conscious decisions
  • Taking control by acknowledging responsibility for choices and developing helpful responses when faced with challenge.

wellMIND™: Resilient Optimistic Capable

Building workplace culture relies on the positive wellbeing of all members of the school community; parents, leaders, staff and students. Wellbeing can be the leverage to improve overall performance by developing better collaboration and creativity, improving morale and increasing engagement. Promoting positive environments fosters better staff and student relationships, improved psychological safety and therefore improved student learning outcomes.

Our wellMIND™ program increases self-awareness, focuses on changing unhelpful behaviours, provides an organisation-wide common language and purpose around psychological wellbeing, and promotes learning across community, staff and students. The programs are designed to provide leaders and teams with the tools and concepts to continually improve their own and others’ wellbeing, resilience and grit.
