What we do

About us

Positive is a specialist learning provider working across the corporate, public and educational sectors. Our work is informed by research in psychology, neuroscience and the medical sciences.

We translate the relevant principles of psychology and human behaviour into practical, versatile tools and techniques that enable individuals, teams and organisations to manage pressure and adapt to change and uncertainty.

Emotional Literacy

Emotion

Advances in neuroscience are highlighting how emotions override the brain’s operating systems, constantly influencing how we think, feel and behave – often without us knowing. By improving emotional literacy and emotional regulation we can improve psychological health and performance.

Attentional Focus

Attentional Focus

Switching attention has a high energy cost for the brain and disrupts information processing, which can compromise cognitive function, memory, decision making and the brain’s executive skills.

Learnt Optimism

Learnt Optimism

Optimism has been linked to higher achievement in education, business and sport, but it is also strongly related to the nature of our decision making. Importantly, optimists work harder, have greater self-control and self-belief.

What

we do

Social Cohesion

Social Cohesion

Cooperative interaction accounts for almost 50% of all performance variations between high and low performing teams. Cooperative groups enjoy better psychological wellbeing, higher levels of motivation and performance. Repeated cooperative behaviour builds, and sustains, trust and loyalty.

Unconscious Bias

Unconscious Bias

Based on past experiences, we make unconscious judgements. These have neurological primacy and are the ‘secret authors’ of thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, influencing how we value, recruit, and promote. Understanding and regulating unconscious bias is a key business skill.

Sleep

Sleep

Sleep powerfully correlates with our mood, cognitive style, behavior and physical health. Learning evidence-based techniques to improve sleep quality and duration delivers better outcomes than any medication.

Tolerance of Uncertainty

Tolerance of Uncertainty

Change can create uncertainty, stress and resistance. Research demonstrates ‘tolerance of ambiguity’ as a salient variable in managing these pressures. Leadership and organisations with higher TA are more flexible, agile, and successful when faced with periods of change and uncertainty.

Building Trust

Building Trust

Trust builds good rapport, cements relationships, facilitates ‘idea flow’, and enhances cooperation. High trust organisations out-perform low trust organisations three fold. There are a set of highly influential factors that help to build and sustain trust in social groups.

"The programme was one of the most engaging I've ever experienced. The combination of science, knowledge and practical application was brilliantly done."

Advances in neuroscience are highlighting how emotions override the brain’s operating systems, constantly influencing how we think, feel and behave – often without us knowing. By improving emotional literacy and emotional regulation we can improve psychological health and performance.

Emotional Literacy

Attentional Focus

Focused attention is essential for effective cognitive function, decision making and memory. Attentional training – using proven cognitive and behavioural techniques – helps build stronger attentional focus, improves psychological health, and boosts productivity.
