It's normal to feel negative emotions – it’s part of being human. But in a world that feels increasingly uncertain, negative emotions like stress and anxiety can become difficult to manage.

Emotional awareness is about noticing our moods and emotions. We can then develop emotional regulation – the ability to manage our emotions, so we can think and feel at our best.

  • Improve emotional awareness
  • Regulate mood
  • Manage stress


In today’s busy, tech-driven world, distractions are everywhere. These can make it hard for us to maintain our energy and focus, and impact our wellbeing and performance.

Cognitive load management is about working with the attentional networks in our brain to optimise our productivity and creativity. Attentional control allows us to decide what we pay attention to, and when.

  • Manage distractions
  • Improve energy
  • Promote creativity


Humans are creatures of habit ­­– we tend to choose familiarity over change. But this rigidity can hold us back if we're unable to adapt or take different perspectives.

Meta-cognition helps us to notice our patterns of thinking. With cognitive flexibility, we can improve our ability to stay open-minded and optimistic in the face of change.

  • Be more adaptive
  • Create perspective
  • Think flexibly


Social glue is the bond that holds teams and organisations together, whatever your set-up. But strong relationships and supportive cultures can be difficult to establish and maintain.

Self-regulation helps us to get in the right frame of mind for positive interactions. Active listening skills enable us to collaborate better, and create psychologically safe environments.

  • Boost social intelligence
  • Strengthen relationships
  • Build psychological safety
