- Powerful Strategies for Pain-Free Relationships at work (and home)
- Happier… now: Simple strategies to slam stress and lead a more fulfilled life
The importance of wellbeing in the workplace is no longer in question. Anxiety and depression continue to rise. Suicide remains too high on “cause of death” for our society – particularly for men. And those who work in ‘caring’ professions are often at some of the greatest risk.
Hundreds of studies emphasise that we need to be psychologically well to be productive and thrive. Even more reveal the growing incidence and potentially life shattering impact of stress, financial pressure, relationship ruptures, and mental health issues. The question now is “how?”:* How do we create an environment where we (and our staff and clients) don’t languish, but flourish?
* How do we take concepts such as “resilience” and “positive psychology” beyond theory and fad to create a sense of thriving?
* How do we move past stress and feel happy?
When was the last time you felt genuinely vital, fulfilled, and connected?
This presentation will teach you the science behind stress, wellbeing, and how to be happier… now.
Dr Justin Coulson is one of Australia’s leading relationships and wellbeing experts.
Struggling with his own wellbeing and family relationships, Justin returned to full time study in his late twenties where he earned first class honours and a subsequent PhD in Positive Psychology (the psychology of wellbeing) so that he could learn how to be a better husband and father – and a happier human. Now the focus of his life is his helping others flourish, in their families, at work, and in their own hearts and minds.
Justin’s presentations are not the ordinary wellbeing presentations you’re used to hearing. While those ‘basics’ matter, there are simple but powerful strategies everyone in your workplace can implement starting today – without having to wake up early, go for a run, drink green smoothies, and meditate in the lotus position for 20 minutes twice daily. (Of course, they can if they want, but most people struggle with this.)
Justin has written 6 books, and is a four-time bestselling author. He has been an occasional columnist for the New York Times and appears regularly in all of Australia’s major news outlets for television, radio, and print.
He’s a TEDx speaker and has worked with many of Australia’s biggest brands including the Commonwealth Bank, Intel Security, ANZ, IHG, Club Med, NSW Police, TAL, and many, many more. He has also served as a consultant to the Australian Government’s Raising Children Network, Department of Social Services, Human Services, and the Office of the e-Safety Commissioner, Life Education and others.
Justin lives with his wife and six daughters in Brisbane, Queensland.
