How to be happy

 How to be Happy.pngI just want to be happy is a common refrain, but what does it actually mean to be happy? Why do we see it as so important and what can we actually do to achieve our goal? These are some of the key issues explored by this course. It will help you to develop a fuller understanding of happiness, learn about the relationship between happiness and well-being and explore some strategies for achieving happiness and improving well-being.

After a short introduction, the course offers six video-based lessons. In the first we explore what we mean by happiness and explain it in the context of the ‘happiness spectrum’. We also introduce the WELL-BEING framework. Lessons 2 to 6 then explore the different elements of that framework.

There is also a module companion workbook that you will need to print out before you start the course. It contains space for notes plus an exercise relating to each of the three lessons. This is an important resource for you, as it will help to extend and consolidate your understanding and provide you with a set of notes to act as a reference source for future development.

What you will learn
  • You will be in a much stronger position to make sure that you are as happy as reasonably possible

How to be liked

 How to be liked.pngYou can’t please all the people all the time, so inevitably there will be people who do not like you or what you do or say. However, there are things we can do to maximize the chances of people having positive feelings towards us. Being liked is an important part of our well-being and happiness – it can make such a positive difference. There are no magic formulas for being liked and no guarantees of success. But what this course can teach you is a number of strategies for increasing the odds that people will like you and respond positively to you.

After a short introduction, the course offers eight video-based lessons. The first discusses the importance of influencing skills and strategies and introduces the SELF-PROJECTION framework. Lessons 2 to 8 then cover the various elements of the SELF-PROJECTION approach, focusing on two aspects in each lesson.

There is also a module companion workbook that you will need to print out before you start the course. It contains space for notes plus an exercise relating to each of the three lessons.

How to have a positive impact on people

How to have a positive impact on people.jpg

When we come into contact with other people, whether face to face, online or in writing, we encounter ‘the Difference Moment’. What I mean by this is that how we respond to one or more other people can be positive or negative. Our part in the interaction can contribute positively to enriching and empowering the other person(s) and ourselves, but it can also contribute negatively to the other person(s) by dis-empowering and diminishing them, while diminishing ourselves in the process. This is the ‘Difference Moment’, the critical moment at which our reaction has positive or negative consequences.
What you will learn
  • You will be better equipped to have a positive influence on the situations you find yourself involved in, whether at work or in your private life

Managing equality, diversity and inclusion

Managing equality, diversity and inclusion11.jpg

This course has been developed as a follow-on course from the Equality, diversity and inclusion course. It has been produced with two groups of people in mind:

  • Anyone interested in taking their understanding of the subject to the next level; and
  • Managers with a responsibility for developing and sustaining a culture rooted in equality, diversity and inclusion.

It comprises three video-based lessons:

  • Lesson 1: Understanding the complexities: PCS analysis This lesson, divided into four parts, presents a helpful framework for understanding how and why the issues involved in equality, diversity and inclusion are so complex. PCS analysis serves as a useful analytical tool for making sense of those complexities. It begins by revisiting the key concepts of equality and diversity
  • Lesson 2: Beyond political correctness Many of the difficulties around equality, diversity and inclusion revolve around the use of language. However, the simplistic political correctness approach of simply banning certain words has created more problems than it has solved. This lesson, also divided into four parts, provides a much more realistic approach to the complex relationship between discrimination and language
  • Lesson 3: Making it a reality Embedding equality, diversity and inclusion into a workplace culture is a challenging matter, and so this lesson explores steps that can be taken to equip you to rise to that challenge as effectively as possible
What you will learn
  • You will be better placed to manage and promote equality, diversity and inclusion due to having a much fuller understanding of the key issues

Pursuing Your Mission from God

Pursuing Your Mission from Godasd.jpg

In the secular world, we place a tremendous burden on our leaders. It should come as no surprise, then, that as leaders, we are tempted to think we are the ones who have to “do it all.” Moses started out thinking that way. But then, as the people grumble more and more, he cried out to God and said: “I can’t carry all these people by myself! The load is far too heavy!” (Numbers 11:14, New Living Translation). As Moses came to recognize the need to build teams of trusted advisers, and prepare his successor, Joshua, to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land, God taught him an important lesson. That lesson is at the heart of this course, and it is this:

  • If you follow this advice, and if God commands you to do so, then you will be able to endure the pressures, and all these people will go home in peace. (Exodus 18:23, New Living Translation)
What you will learn
  • Identify your mission from God for you and your ministry
  • Understand and apply the principle of cooperative effort in building a ministry team
  • Learn how to train the volunteers God has called to build your ministry
  • Nurture a commitment among your volunteers and coworkers to lead the ministry into the “Promised Land” now, and in the future
  • Identify the steps in Going to the Other Side of the Hill
