A guide to psychological flexibility at work
For many of us, life feels like a constant state of ‘busyness’. When we’re asked how we’re doing at work, we almost feel compelled to respond with “busy!” It’s become a badge of pride. We’ve all got so much on and quite frankly, there’s no end in sight to the work.
Other people and their needs can start to appear like obstacles and we find ourselves letting our mood set the tone for the day. In fact, we sometimes let our emotions take the driving seat and tell us what to do.
But if we take a step back for a moment, we quickly realise that it’s very easy to slip into autopilot, engaging in relentless multi-tasking and giving in to our emotions. Then comes disappointment that we’re not headed where we originally planned, having encountered some real setbacks and disappointments along the way. Work is central to many people’s lives and yet it’s also the source of a lot of discomfort and upset.
This guide provides an accessible introduction to help you move from ‘surviving work’ to ‘thriving at work’. Our focus is a concept called ‘Psychological flexibility’, which is an evidence-based approach to improving wellbeing, satisfaction and productivity at work. It’s about dealing with our thinking and our emotions, getting in touch with our values and putting them into practice.
