Having always viewed myself as a ‘half full’ person, I believe the impact of the Diploma has been significant. I now actively take steps to show up as my Best Self in my work, leisure and relationships and I feel happier. I love talking to others about Positive Psychology and sometimes challenging their perceptions of life.
I am so grateful that I found this diploma and that I was lucky enough to have Sue facilitate it. It truly has given me not only the tools and practices to help people, but the confidence to do it and know that what I’m sharing is fascinating science-based stuff that can change peoples lives. It’s allowed me to live and work authentically and given me strategies to be more resilient when life calls for it. I am so glad I did it.
I have shared the knowledge to more than 500 individuals, living in remote communities in Thailand and with private and public organisations. Creative tourism development recently has been awarded as the best strategy, using the positive change approach to open up all possibilities and overcome the fear of being inadequate in any way.
Spreading positive ripples makes me feel alive and enjoying a meaningful life! It has also impacted my judgement and emotional regulation strategies positively; I believe I’m now more resilient, better with people around me and more satisfied with my life!
Upon completing the programme, I incorporated many of the learnings into the Global Leadership and Talent Management Programme at Brightside. One of the highlights of the Leadership Programme was facilitating the Helping Hands Programme as a team activity. I used this activity to drive awareness, highlight the impact of achieving a shared goal, the effectiveness of teamwork and most importantly why we need to have PURPOSE in everything we do.
