Positive Coaching

Designed to help people flourish.

Underpinned by the science of positive psychology coaching, we work with individuals, groups and teams to create meaningful and sustainable change.

You’re not alone in this.

Whether you’re a team leader, an individual looking for support, or the member of a team, you don’t have to tackle workplace wellbeing on your own.


Mentally healthy workplaces make business sense.

A survey conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers in 2014 found organisations that implement effective actions to create a mentally healthy workplace, on average, can expect a positive return on investment of 2.3.

So, for every dollar spent on successfully implementing an appropriate action, there is on average $2.30 in benefits to be gained by the organisation.

But knowing where to start can feel hard. This is where our positive coaching programs come in.

At The Positivity Institute, we’re pioneers in evidence-based coaching to create positive workplace culture, improve organisational performance and practical, sustainable change.

Coaching with The Positivity Institute can:

  • Facilitate goal attainment
  • Enhance psychological wellbeing and resilience
  • Reduce depression, stress and anxiety
  • Lead to higher levels of job satisfaction

Coaching FAQs

What scientific models underpin our wellbeing coaching program?2021-08-17T10:00:29+00:00

1. The “Wellbeing-Engagement Framework” (Grant & Spence, 2009), where a focus on elevated levels of wellbeing and engagement at work result in employees who flourish and perform better.

2. The 6M model of wellbeing and peak performance (Dr Suzy Green, 2019) is based on Positive Psychology – the science of optimal human functioning. These six key psychological strategies have been identified in research and practice to make a significant impact on people’s wellbeing, purpose, positivity, performance and resilience. The various tools and techniques that make up this model have proved to be successful in bringing about individual transformation, positive cultural change and contributing to organisational effectiveness.

How is Wellbeing Coaching different from traditional executive coaching?2021-08-04T01:44:11+00:00

Wellbeing coaching has a primary focus on enhancing wellbeing. It does not have specific workplace performance outcomes on input from leadership. It may be provided to a member of staff or teams as an employee benefit or as a proactive approach to enhance mental health and wellbeing.

How effective is coaching?2021-08-04T02:05:23+00:00

Coaching can facilitate goal attainment, enhance psychological and subjective well-being and resilience, while reducing depression, stress or anxiety. There are also two RCT studies of workplace coaching, with one finding evidence for the effectiveness of coaching on health, life satisfaction, burnout and psychological well-being. There is also some evidence that coaching and mentoring are associated with higher levels of job satisfaction and commitment to the organisation and several small scale pre-post coaching comparisons (without random allocation) showing that coaching may enhance well-being.

What is Positive Psychology Coaching?2021-08-04T02:05:54+00:00

Either by phone or using the video function of your phone, tablet or computer, you and your coach can build rapport and have collaborative coaching conversations, as if in the same room. It’s super- efficient with zero wasted travelling time or cost, and can be done at a time to suit you, no matter where you are in the world.
