WHAT IS

POSITIVE
PSYCHOLOGY?

Positive psychology is an emerging branch of applied psychology that combines the essentials of conventional schools of thought with modern methods. It exclusively deals with positive emotions, positive individual traits and positive institutions. Being highly relevant and applicable to your daily life, positive psychology can help you help yourself and others around you.

It is scientifically proven that happier people with positive emotions and traits are more productive as they think faster, more creative, healthier, more successful, caring and more socially engaged.

POSITIVE ORGANISATIONAL APPROACH (VALUES)

We utilise character strengths to develop psychological capital (H.E.R.O) to harvest positive human potential that create spaces for personal, group and organisational wellbeing.

H.E.R.O AT THE WORKPLACE (CULTURE)

Our Motto is “Be a H.E.R.O” to promote the practice of wellbeing and collaborative culture. H.E.R.O is the acronym for Hope, Efficacy, Resiliency and Optimism. H.E.R.O explores the 4 capacities of psychological states that affect organisational wellbeing, motivation and performance.
