What is Positive Psychology?
Positive psychology is “the scientific study of what makes life most worth living”. It helps us understand what causes us to be resilient, happy, fulfilled, courageous, have true meaning, work within our strengths, and reach our goals. Positive psychology is concerned with “the good life” and what makes us thrive and flourish in our life and work.

Our Core Coaching Principles
Meaning and Purpose
Meaning and purpose are the foundation of happiness in the human experience. Feelings of self-efficacy and occupational fulfillment are key drivers in achieving this principle.
Values and Value Systems underlie every aspect of both an individual’s and an organization’s ethos. In turn, the establishment of clear values is key to accelerating success.
Adversity is a natural and important part of the human experience. Navigating such adversities with resilience is fundamental in a fulfilled life.
Emotional research describes empathy as “the ability to sense other people’s emotions, coupled with the ability to imagine what someone else might be thinking or feeling.” The three types of empathy; cognitive, emotional and compassionate can be used to help us gain a better understanding of people and the world in which we live.
The growth mindset is the belief that growth in one’s ability is the result of taking opportunities to learn and expand one’s skillset. An individual with a growth mindset will be more likely to take on challenges, accept feedback, and have a much stronger sense of self.
Creating a greater sense of emotional regulation will allow individuals to reclaim power over their emotions, and in turn, giving them greater power over their thoughts and actions.
Humans are social in nature, and movement in groups is hardwired into our DNA. In turn, a sense of belonging is pivotal in a positive human experience.
Acceptance is a vital principle in many areas of positive psychology and governs our interpretation of life events. A greater sense of acceptance allows for more solution-oriented thinking and a more positive human experience.
