    Navigating Change: Are there too many pieces to the puzzle?

    In the world of education, change can often feel like managing a complex machine. Just like cogs in a gear system, various pieces need attention and shifting. But in the midst of this, it's easy to get overwhelmed and lose sight of where to direct our efforts. This is a common challenge in schools, where there are numerous tasks and activities happening simultaneously. So, how can educators ensure that their energy is going where it matters most?

    Why Schedule Send is Not The Answer

    In the fast-paced world of trying to achieve work-life balance, prioritising wellbeing and setting boundaries, all while maintaining consistent ways of working, email is a common topic of discussion.

    When wellbeing week fizzles out and you don't know what to do...

    Wellbeing weeks. Some people love them, some not so much. Sometimes they are great, and sometimes they fizzle out. Is it time to move on from wellbeing weeks, or do we need to do them differently? Perhaps it is time to ask our staff not what they want to do, but instead, how they want to feel so we can offer what they need. Dive into this week's episode to hear more.

    Stress, burnout and the path to thriving with Dr Jenny Brockis

    In this episode Amy and Jenny discuss the difference between stress and burnout, and the sliding scale.

    What is your wellness strategy?

    Your wellbeing strategy needs to be planned, and whilst it may require hard work, it shouldn’t be hard. Yes, you know you should exercise more and perhaps it might feel hard, yes, it may feel a little tricky to initially set boundaries, and yes, it may cause a bit of stress, to begin with as you stop checking emails in the evening. However, as you build these habits, you will realise the hard work becomes easier and once established all these things combine to make up your wellness strategy and support your overall wellbeing.

    Exploring Wellbeing Science & Why Resilience is the key to growth

    The Missing Step to Creating Change

    In the human behaviour space and in coaching we often refer to a process called integration. This is where we take what we've learnt and integrate it into our being. We move what we learn from knowledge to practice so it becomes part of who we are. This is a crucial part of the change process, and one that is valued, given time for and reflected on before moving on to something else.
