Ian is joined by Gemma Perkins who qualified as a teacher before starting her own business in 2014 to share her expertise. She is now on a mission to help individuals and teams unlock their potential and live more effective and well-rounded lives.
Gemma works with corporate managers, refugees, student activists and charity teams on developing their self-leadership, teamwork, wellbeing and a whole host of other soft skills that support a balanced and fulfilling life.
Ian and Gemma look at the emerging field of study that is Positive Psychology. This is a subject that comes up a lot with our guests and so in this episode, we try and put together a “Positive Psychology 101” so that we can all have a better understanding of the subject.
Ian and Gemma discuss:
- The history of positive psychology
- Gemma gets Ian to try a positive psychology exercise
- How can it help improve wellbeing in the workplace
- Some psychology health habits.
