This programme is designed to support individuals, teams and organisations:
Based on recent neuro, behavioural and psychological sciences it develops the collaborative skills and shared understandings needed for us all to address our current global challenges.
Not only does it improve organisational coherence and performance, it supports well-being and gives people the psychological knowledges they need to work with external stakeholders, particularly when collaborating to change behaviours. It is particularly useful for those working on climate change, health or any other issue involving behaviour change and integrating diversity.
If you don't understand your own mind, how can you understand the minds of others? If you can't change your own behaviour, how can you change the behaviour of those around you?
Described as radical and world leading, the programme combines up to date science with accessible and well tested practices. It teaches essential knowledge of the mechanisms of mind and emotion involved in our every interaction with the world.
The programme is tailored to your organisations needs and objectives. It usually takes place over three months. It works best as blended learning but can be delivered wholly online, interactive sessions are supported by group coaching sessions and one to one mentoring.
‘The course is really interesting and really gets you thinking about how we all go about our work and lives. It gives you a great perspective on why you feel the way you do and why you see and do things in a certain way. Not only that it gives you a real understanding of why others go about things the way they do, which has been hugely valuable for me when I work with people, understanding them and how they are means we can work better together. For anyone who works with others, I feel this course could prove enlightening and of great value.’ Gary Sainty, Deputy CEO, Active Humber.
"Superb teacher; Rachel's intellectual and physical grasp of the material is superb and she puts it all across in an embodied, fully present, effective."
“I think I have become better at listening and considering other perspectives.”
Rachel brings a new, in-depth understanding, not only of how our minds and emotions work together, but alongside a wealth of contextual experience in how these actually play out and takes shape in our work, organisations and communities. Rachel has worked with us at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, through Sport England funding in aid of bringing all her understanding and learning to a community setting. She has a deep commitment to bringing this subject alive to everyday people, making sense of themselves and each other as they become more able to see and hear each other, and embrace the differences that make that make the difference. The challenge she brings to our thinking in terms of true co-production in planning, delivery, support and evaluation is refreshing and always cogent. practical and ambitious. I will continue to bring Rachel into streams of work moving forward, because she is at the very front of exploring and bringing to the real world, the means to understanding ourselves, building capacity for addressing systemic and complex problems.
