What’s the most important minute in your life?

The very early signs of Spring are in the air and in this issue of Spring Reflections I wanted to use the garden as a metaphor to explore the wellbeing of you, your staff and your organisation.
So how does your garden grow? 
Gardens are complex ecosystems that need tending and care to keep them looking at their best. There are many shapes, sizes and styles of gardens and each need tailored care to their own specific needs. Keeping the garden healthy, flourishing and in tune with the wider environment needs constant attention.

On a personal level we can relate this garden analogy to our minds. How much attention are you paying to how healthy your mind is? Do you do a few overhauls a year or some steady tending week by week? Dr Rick Hanson uses the garden analogy as a useful metaphor to explore how we might build healthy minds to support us in our life today:

What would you like to let be?
What needs weeding? (let go)
What extra nourishment and sowing do we need to provide? (let in)
How we perform our day to day work and how we experience our life is very much driven by how healthy our minds are- are the weeds out of control or are we feeling truly nourished and happy?

This analogy obviously also works with organisations too, how is your ecosystem thriving? What might you need to GROW?

Backed up by the latest research on neuroplasticity, taking in the good, mind training, kindness and compassion I can work with individuals, teams and organisations to help to add a bit of fertiliser and/or help you tend a few weeds. So if you fancy a different take on your standard staff training programs, coaching, or team development then do give me a call. I can offer off the shelf and tailored interventions focused around

Staff wellbeing, strengths and happiness
Leadership and management development
Team Development
Coaching and Supervisory skills
Mind training for attention, creativity and self care for adults and children
Compassion and kindness interventions
Creative arts

So if you are an individual, blue chip organisation, small business, charity, school or government organisation I may have something to help. All prices are tailored to sector and ability to pay. Curious?
