If there’s one thing that can be said of all organisations, it’s that they contain people – individuals who can’t help but think, feel and behave in particular and often predictable ways. In today’s uncertain, rapidly changing world, having an understanding of human psychology and the factors that drive human behaviour has become essential for organisations to have the best chances of success.

At Positive, our work focuses on the translation of research in psychology and neuroscience into practical applications that can enhance and maintain psychological wellbeing and performance. We partner with organisations to build capability, equipping employees with knowledge and tools that are science-based, adaptable and most importantly, proven to achieve real, measurable results.

2020: In light of the ongoing disruption being caused by Covid-19, we have put together a short digital programme to help support leaders, teams and organisations through this difficult time. Click here to find out more. 

The Positive Pillars

Our programmes are built around four key areas. Within each one, we combine relevant scientific theory with practical tools to help individuals and teams to improve and maintain their psychological wellbeing and performance.


Our thoughts, feelings and behaviours are all inextricably linked. Becoming aware of our emotions and how they can influence our cognition and behaviour is the first step to improved psychological wellbeing and resilience.


We all have a limited capacity for attention. Being able to direct our focus and manage our cognitive resources is essential for optimising our productivity and performance.


Our individual and group mindsets significantly impact our work and wellbeing. By improving our awareness and challenging natural biases, we can authentically increase optimism and better manage pressure and uncertainty.


Our social interactions play a crucial part in determining our wellbeing and the quality of our relationships. Improving our understanding of human interactions enables leaders and teams to build trust, improve collaboration and enhance performance.

Building Capability

Supporting a broader cultural change programme, we worked with CYBG to improve resilience and flexibility among employees during a period of significant change and uncertainty. Adopting a top–down approach, we now support a community of more than 100 Positive Leaders who are trained and accredited to take out their learning to 7000 employees across the UK.

Improving Wellbeing and Resilience

Grant Thornton logo
Working with the UK partnership of Grant Thornton LLP, we delivered a modular programme designed to improve psychological wellbeing and build resilience. As well as teachings from psychology and neuroscience, the programme covered aspects of sleep, nutrition and exercise to provide partners and their teams with a practical everyday toolkit to improve and maintain wellbeing.
"“The resilience piece is absolutely critically important for Grant Thornton and having piloted it we saw the value and decided to invest in it.”"
Scott Barnes, Chairman of Grant Thornton's International Board

Managing Pressure and Uncertainty

Working with consultant oncologists, we developed a targeted programme to improve emotional literacy and psychological wellbeing within an NHS trust. The programme equipped consultants with knowledge and tools to better manage the pressures of their working environments while also exploring the impact of improved psychological wellbeing on interactions with patients.
"“Working with Positive created a more supportive working environment, improved communication and collaboration as well as better equipping consultants to deal with patients and their relatives.”"
Fiona McKinna, Consultant Oncologist, Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust

Supporting Change and Transformation

Working alongside a global change agenda within Amgen, we developed a programme for leadership and people managers to improve resilience and build more flexible, adaptive teams. Over 400 leaders across Europe, the US and Canada have been taken through the programme so far and it is now an established part of Amgen’s leadership curriculum.
"“The programme is one of the most engaging I've ever experienced. The combination of science, knowledge and practical application was brilliantly done.”"
Accredited Positive Practitioner, Amgen
