Why Wellbeing Initiatives Fail … And What You Can Do About It

Organisational spend on wellbeing continues to rise, but despite pouring more cash into the issue and a massive increase in the profile of mental health in particular, the problem if anything appears to be worse. For example, according to a CIPD study, the number of people who experience anxiety, stress and depression at work has risen from a quarter to a third over the past five years. So, despite the dream combination of greater awareness and more spend we are going backwards. Recently, Complete Coherence convened a roundtable of 30 corporations to explore the problem and start to provide some answers …

Politics, Profits and Paradox

Well what a week in Westminster. Not so much a partridge in a pear tree more like four kingdoms un-united, three parties fighting, two divisive views and a premiership gone pear-shaped.

The Christmas spirit of peace and good will to all people is hard to find, let alone the three wise men. We are witnessing a toxic polarisation and some very deep divisions within parties, between parties, between generations and within the nation itself, not to mention the split between the UK and our neighbours in Europe. People are trying to force their views on each other with little understanding that such a move can only make things worse. It is difficult to escape the conclusion that politics is broken, possibly irretrievably. It has descended into a very ugly power battle and politicians seem unable to come up with any wise answers to the mess that they themselves have created.

Coaching for better decision-making

Sue Graham Johnston, former head of RBU UK / Ireland / Africa at the Linde Group shares her experiences of coaching with Complete Coherence. ‘When I arrived as a new leader to Linde, it was an organisation that really didn’t have any other examples of people who had come in from the outside. Not only was I from ‘the outside’, I was also a foreign woman who had not worked in the industry before. Furthermore, I was appointed to replace an MD who had been abruptly removed. The situation was not great from an entry perspective and there were multiple opportunities for failure.’

Coaching creates lasting change

The coaching has been very practical, but it’s the emotional impact that has been so dramatic. I am so relaxed, calm, positive and genuinely excited about my future. Even though I’m the main breadwinner, I’m not panicking about anything because I feel so confident in my own capabilities – I honestly feel very positive.

Brilliance without burnout?

There is a cultural narrative we reinforce about what success looks like, and what we have to do to achieve it. But what is the cost of actually living your life like this, and does high performance really have to come with dangerous consequences? What really happens when you are operating from a continuous position of extreme stress? Can we improve our resilience and capacity, and achieve brilliance without burnout?
The answer is yes. Here’s what we’ve learned about winning in the pressure performance paradigm. Optimal performance requires an integrated approach that extends beyond what you do to your results and behaviour. But where do you start?

AI Anxiety

The robots are coming – AI anxiety: Why you’re not alone and what you can do about it

It’s no wonder people feel anxious. Faced with predictions that 20-50 percent of all jobs will disappear as a result of developments in artificial intelligence (AI) over the next 10-30 years, we would all be forgiven for being concerned about the future. When once we might have yearned for the days when we could be released from the drudgery of work, we are now scared by it. And it’s not just low-skilled jobs that could be affected, AI applications are already threatening to usurp professions like doctors, lawyers, bankers etc.

The headlines might be doom-laden, but I am much more optimistic, and here’s why …

Complete Coherence @ Changeboard Future Talent Conference

We thoroughly enjoyed this year’s Changeboard Future Talent Conference. It was a day full of thought provoking conversations and a lot of laughs, not least thanks to the amazing Lenny Henry! In the afternoon, Alan Watkins, Complete Coherence’s CEO, ran an interactive session with Alastair Campbell and Geoff McDonald about the importance of mental health, and what businesses can do to help break the stigma. Here are our key take-aways from the session.

Coaching helped me defeat my greatest internal enemies

Complete Coherence’s coaching method was different from anything I’d known before because it is very data oriented. It is backed up by science using a 24-hour Heart Rate Variability (HRV) assessment. As a result of that, I found that I succumbed to the objectivity of the data. Having that reality check of the data was really important. I could not hide from what the numbers were telling me about my energy levels.

Paws for thought!

We all know that our individual wellbeing is important, but it also matters to organisations. Unfortunately few business leaders pay as much attention to it as they should. However, there was an occasion recently at Complete Coherence that made us really stop and think about it.

The biological basis of flow

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi first drew our attention to the idea of a flow state in the early 90s and since then the concept has caught on. Most people have observed sports teams in a state of flow. A state in which a team suddenly achieves a level of brilliance and fluidity that is noticeably different from …Read more

How to take your first step towards coherence

I was chatting to someone the other day who had read my book. They were being very complementary, but then she asked me: where do I start? If I want to change my life for the better, what’s the first step? I thought I’d share with you my answer. There is a tendency to think …Read more

Get Psyched or Calm Down?

As a communications coach I often get asked “should I psyche myself up for this big presentation/ pitch or should I calm myself down?” My answer is “Neither. Become coherent ie, controlled and clear. Simply put, Coherence is a physiological (internal) state where your brain is receiving strong, clear, stable signals from your body. The …Read more

Coaching the coaches to avoid the Pardew ‘kiss’

As Alan Pardew awaits the date of his personal hearing to discuss the FA misconduct charge for his apparent ‘Glasgow kiss’ on Hull City’s David Meyler, I wonder why we’re still talking about punishment rather than prevention. We hear very little debate about some of the underlying pressures and causes of behaviour such as Pardew’s, …Read more
