Happiness By Design at Work Partnership

We are delighted to announce that the Life Practice Team are joining forces with Professor Paul Dolan (London School of Economics) and his team to offer a new approach to workplace wellness programmes.  Collectively, we offer a wealth and range of experience from the archives of scientific research conducted for government to the corporate boardroom. 

With an internationally renowned Behavioural Scientist to Wellness Coaches and mentors of the highest calibre we have a very strong and unique combination of skills to tackle the challenges that companies face today.

The Happiness by Design at Work programme is centred on changing behaviour, not just changing minds.  We have gathered up many of the robust effects on behaviour that operate largely, though not exclusively, on the automatic self. We have expressed them under the pneumonic MINDSPACE: messenger, incentives, norms, defaults, salience, priming, affect, commitments, and ego In simple terms, we can seek to change behaviour in two main ways. First, we can seek to change minds. If we change the way they think about and reflect upon things, then we can change their behaviour. The success of these kinds of interventions has been somewhat mixed. Second, we can seek to change people's behaviour by changing their contextual cues. If we change the 'choice architecture', then we can change their behaviour. It turns out behaviour is a lot more 'automatic' and somewhat less 'reflective' than we have previously thought.

By tapping into the unconscious, we design environments and contexts by which preferred behaviour is more likely achieved and then sustained, through weekly or monthly mentoring and follow ups.  We ensure it becomes a habit and create long lasting changes employees  day-to-day experience at work.
