We are in the business of human conservation. Why? Because at no time in history have we ever expected individuals to cope with ingesting and acting on so much information, across so many channels of communication.

The NeuroTHRIVE program

THRIVE is a system developed to help overwhelmed people adjust, adapt and succeed in rapidly transforming or volatile environments. It is a system based on two primary principles inspired by Antonio Damasio MD PhD and Albert Einstein.

Working effectively and creatively in today’s workplace

The program identifies brain-friendly ways to adapt, gain insights, grow and flourish in the context of today‘s business environment. As we head into a future where machines (AI – Artificial Intelligence) will overtake the doing, there has never been a greater premium on creativity and emotional intelligence. Improving your mental and physical fitness will help you to improve your immune system, cope with stress and change in new healthy brain friendly ways.

Structured around T.H.R.I.V.E

6 areas of the human mental, physical and emotional body, looking at what it takes to enable and achieve peak performance for individuals and the workforce community.

THINK  –  Understand brainpower as a limited and precious resource and how to protect it.

Program outcomes

Improve self-awareness, minimise distractions and extend our thinking capacity each day. Protect deep thinking and attentional intelligence for increasing  creativity, innovation and our problem solving capabilities.

HARNESS EMOTIONS  –  Understand the “fight or flight response in today’s office environment and how to reclaim brainpower.

Program outcomes

Reduce emotional arousal and increase emotional intelligence. Achieve goals whilst anticipating obstacles that arise, with confidence to find solutions

RELATEDNESS  –  Understand our brain is a social organ regardless and whether we are introverted or extroverted, most of us want to feel we belong and add value in our work.

Program outcomes

Enhance social intelligence, collaboration and engagement to improve performance and productivity.

INTUITION  –  ‘My best decisions in business and life have been made by intuition, not analysis’ said Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos.

Program outcomes

Ability to tap into your intuition (right brain hemisphere) to understand the rightness or wrongness of a situation, including cognitive biases that may be holding you back from making the best decisions.

VULNERABILITY  –  Understand that resilient and thriving communities and workplaces require an open and sharing culture. Many of us have been raised to think of vulnerability as a sign of weakness. Vulnerability can be seen as a new power by dealing with vulnerabilities and fears, allowing new possibilities to present itself.

Program outcomes

By allowing yourself to be vulnerable, you will build your confidence and learn to trust yourself and your judgement. Ability to be open to new opportunities and possibilities by dealing with fear and vulnerabilities that is empowering. There is no innovation and creativity without learning from failure in a psychology safe environment.

ENERGY  –  Understand that our energy is a limited resource. To adapt and thrive through change, we need to be at our best for healthy peak performance.

Program outcomes

Boost your energy with the right fuels from your diet, sleep, exercise and mindfulness practices to raise your mental and physical fitness whilst minimise illness and sickness.
Decrease sick days and perk up performance.

Overall program benefits – summary

Enhance the collective brain across emotional, social and attentional intelligence across the business. An organisation that leverages these techniques and strategies is likely to reduce sick days and  worker compensation claims, including mitigating legal risks.

A brain-friendly structured program using small pockets of time, spread out over a 6-9 month program.

Sustainable learning program that enhances engagement and motivation by applying new strategies and tools.

Apply new tools in bite size chunks that allows them to have wins and successes immediately. When winning, employees are more likely to continue using it. As wins occur it increases employee engagement, performance, productivity and results in higher returns on investment.

Who is this program for?

For everyone, we cater for individuals, teams and organisations. We will customise the program to meet your specific requirements and priorities.

Program delivery

Flexible program format

Each T.H.R.I.V.E module is delivered in 3 hour workshops either face to face or 2×1.5 hour webinars. Group or individual coaching sessions are recommended in between each module every 2-3 weeks to imbed key learnings and behaviours. This allows us to celebrate wins, share key learnings and focus on solutions for those strategies not working effectively, as no two brains are the same we need to customise the approach.

Key aspects can also be presented as a 1.5 hr keynote presentation, or a 3-hr presentation/workshop for conferences, company or team kick-off sessions and lunch-and-learn events.

The specific combination can be customised to meet your goals and is discussed during the initial discussion.

– For individuals

The program is delivered in a coaching style, either face to face or via webinars.

We recommended an initial 8 x 1 hour sessions within 12 week period. This will include monitoring what’s working for the individual and adjusting it meet the desired outcomes.

Delivery style

  • The program is interactive, engaging and a lot of fun, with practical exercises for participants to apply and embed the new insights and knowledge.
  • This is certainly not death by PowerPoint! – the material includes videos, team interaction, challenging exercises and sharing.
  • Participants can be the scientist of their own experiment, applying what they learn in bite-sized chunks.
  • Each component is supported by the relevant neuroscience research so that participants can feel confident about the new and often revolutionary approaches and techniques.

Behavioural Profiling

Many organisations find it helpful to engage with profiling. 

Profiling enables participants to understand their underlying behavioural preferences and why they approach situations and individuals in particular ways.

This information allows leaders to consciously modify or adapt their behaviours to achieve the best results within their team.

PRISM Brain Mapping profile tool

We offer PRISM Brain Mapping, which uses a neuroscience-based approach to identify an individual’s ‘behaviour preferences’ by mapping brain activity in 8 behaviour dimensions and 26 key aspects of work preference.

This is available preceding the THRIVE program or as a separate workshop.  Find out more.

We can help you cultivate the informed and self-compassionate mindset needed for peak performance in today’s complex business environment.
