Beyond Resilience

// Workshop //

Many organisations are undergoing significant business transformation, which is increasing the amount of stress that employees are feeling. When physiological, psychological and emotional resources are insufficient to meet demand, fatigue, impairment and burnout can result.

In order to not only survive, but thrive, in such an environment requires employees to adopt rituals that allow them to cope with stressors in the short-term, and induce productive adaptations in the long-term.

  • Thrive under pressure

  • Adopt daily rituals

  • Cope with stress

  • Induce long-term productive adaptation

  • Performance improvement

This workshop is designed to enable employees to thrive under pressure in a sustainable manner by exploring the science of resilience and peak performance tips from the military and elite athletes to provide participants with new insights and daily practices that will move them beyond risk mitigation to performance improvement.


High Performance Teams

// Workshop //

This workshop is a unique blend of personal experiences and cutting edge research into both team dynamics and social neuroscience.

Paul blends this experience with his insights from completing a Postgraduate Diploma in the Neuroscience of Leadership and the practical applications of working closely with senior executive teams in large organisations such as Medibank, Goodman Fielder, Iselect, SAP, CISCO and Ballarat and Casey City councils.

Participants complete a pre-workshop questionnaire to identify which areas to focus on in the workshop and additional coaching is provided if required.

“Paul's workshop on High Performing Teams was exactly what we were after. His engaging style and use of interactivity kept the leadership tea focused throughout the day.

Thriving in the modern work environment requires us to optimise and renew our physical and mental resources in order to create a state of sustainable high performance, which is highly challenging in the reality of long work hours and high-stress environments, interfacing with the challenges of personal lives.

This program examines high performance through the lens of the 4 pillars of:

Mindset, Movement, Nutrition, Recovery.

It combines research from the fields of neuroscience, physiology, psychology and nutrition with practices of elite athletes and military special forces units to give insights and rituals that will positively impact performance as well as physical and mental health. To assist you to turn good intentions into great habits, this workshop will include a proven method of behavioural change.
