If your people aren’t equipped to cope with pressure, manage stressful situations, adapt to change and use failure as a learning opportunity, how can your organisation do the same?
Through our coaching, training and consultancy, we cultivate wellbeing, resilience and adaptability in individuals, teams and organisations.
We help you embed a culture of wellbeing and resilience into the strategic lens and operational heart of your organisation. Improving performance. Preparing you for the future.
It is an inevitable part of life. Challenging, yes. Uncomfortable, sometimes. But with the right mindset, approach and behaviours, it can be the making of us.
On a good day, before nine is a time of clarity, preparation and optimism for the day ahead.
At before nine, we help you to be well, work well and thrive, no matter what your day, your life or the world throws at you.
We enable you to develop a healthy mindset, emotional intelligence and resilient behaviours so that you can respond to life's challenges, change and failure; whilst taking advantage of opportunities for your growth and success.
We help you build the mindset, emotional muscles and behaviours that enable you to experience mental wellbeing on a daily basis and resilience when you need it.
We give you the tools and confidence to overcome daily stresses, life- or career-changing events and everything in between.
Supporting you in your efforts to achieve your personal and professional goals.
Getting back up on your feet quickly when life doesn't go the way you expected.
Using whatever you've learnt along the way to help you grow.
Resilience relies on mental wellbeing.
Whenever you're feeling mentally or emotionally low, even the smallest challenge will feel insurmountable. When you're feeling well, you feel that you can take on the world.
The same goes for organisations.
If your people are struggling - perhaps because of their working environment or the excessive pressures placed on them - this not only impacts their performance.
It also affects how well they will be able to recover when faced with challenges, change or failure in the workplace.
And, let's face it, the challenges of running a successful organisation in today's changing world aren't getting any easier.
We help your team build social connection and trust, support each other's wellbeing and manage the pressures placed on them.
We help them anticipate change, collaborate in good times and bad, adapt and learn from failure. Increasing their chances of success.
Building team resilience enables individual team members to flourish. Improving performance of the team, as a whole.
We believe that all of your people should be given the opportunity to enjoy mental wellbeing and develop their resilience.
But we recognise that you often have to prioritise your investments.
And prioritise who you invest in.
The good news is that there is a clear Return on Investment (RoI) from investment in wellbeing and resilience initiatives.
We provide your staff, managers and executives with the tools they need to enjoy mental wellbeing, personal resilience and agility.
So that, together, you can navigate the tough times, use change as an enabler and learn from failure.
Identifying opportunities for organisational growth, increasing the chances of your success.
More than education, more than experience, more than training, a person’s level of resilience will determine who succeeds and who fails. That’s true in the cancer ward, it’s true in the Olympics and it’s true in the boardroom. Dean Becker, "How Resilience works"
Resilience is the strength and speed of our response to adversity—and we can build it. It isn’t about having a backbone. It’s about strengthening the muscles around our backbone. Sheryl Sandberg, "Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience..."
The leaders I met...always referred back to the same failure - something that...was personally difficult, even traumatic.... that made them feel that desperate sense of hitting bottom- as something they thought was almost a necessity. It's as if at that moment the iron entered their soul; that moment created the resilience that leaders need. Warren Bennis, "On Becoming a Leader"
Everybody has accepted by now that change is unavoidable. But that still implies that change is like death and taxes - it should be postponed as long as possible and no change would be vastly preferable. But in a period of upheaval, such as the one we are living in, change is the norm. Peter F. Drucker, Godfather of modern Management
