There are many organisations and individuals that offer companies programs and opportunities to improve efficiency, production and profits using pre-established platforms and programs that often fail to capture the true issues that have created the problems in the first place.
Amberley works with people, and one thing all companies have in common is that their greatest asset is their staff. Just as individuals differ so do the needs of each company. To that end what Amberley offers is to meet with you, hear what are your needs are, help you ascertain where and why those needs might not be being met, and present you with viable solutions to meet your market and stay sustainably profitable and healthy from the inside out.
"2 weeks ago a colleague came into my office to ask for help and then proceeded to have a complete psychological breakdown leading to a stay with the mental health team. This morning one of my staff came to me to say she is being abused at home. The weekend provided me with tools to settle the first incident and the hugely emotional impact, but also the mechanisms to step up for my staff member today and then manage my emotional response. It has been truly life changing for me. Thank you.”

Why workplace wellness matters
In the business and working world mental agility and resilience are key factors in helping us navigate the difficult situations that rise from time to time. These are not necessarily skills we naturally possess, and certainly without continual use we can lose them or have them become dulled.
Our workshops are so successful because they use evidence-based practices to introduce, enhance and refine mental and emotional capacity. If you cannot keep calm, hold yourself in a steady space, and be comfortable with the uncomfortable, then you are likely to go to move into overwhelm at some point and then into the fight or flight mode.
By practicing techniques such as mindfulness, yoga and meditation you are forcing yourself, in a safe and known environment, to develop your ability to be comfortable with the uncomfortable. Your mind makes a map of this and then uses it as a template. Thus when faced with other uncomfortable and demanding situations at work your mind will automatically know what to do without you needing to exert any extra effort.
When you harness adaptive mental and emotional strength you are far likelier to make good choices, avoid costly mistakes, and not take your stress out inappropriately on others that could then be perceived as being bullying or even intimidation.
Amberley has an a myriad of tools and a vast pool of knowledge that will help you achieve the perfect balance in your workplace. Humans are any company's greatest resource and investing in their wellbeing will always pay out dividends in terms of your employees' ability to remain focussed, safe and dedicated to your needs.

Team Building - Positive Culture Workshops
Most people have realised by now that a happy workplace is a productive and successful workplace. However, achieving this is not always that simple.
With the extensive and ever increasing pressures that are placed on people, not just within the workplace, but also in their private lives problems are inevitable. When problems occur against a backdrop of limited coping skills or a lack of strong support, then sadly difficult and challenging workplace environments are consequently created. Our team building workshops are not just about uniting teams in a common cause, they also provide people with the skills to reach others when life has become too much or too hard.
By working with you either here on the Sunshine Coast, or by coming into your work environment we can create the right approach to enhance learning and generate a sense of support. We will organise nutritious food as part of the process as we know how vital good food is to energise, nurture and support any learning process. Food has a way of bringing people together and we pride ourselves on providing not only quality snacks and meals, but also on giving valid information on how people can use food to transform their health and well being in simple and achievable ways.
