Sessions took place in Newport, Swansea and Wrexham and we were delighted to be joined by Mark Hodder.

In partnership with CMI Cymru, Hive returned in October bringing together employers from across the sectors in Wales, to explore modern working practices that are more appropriate for 21st Century working and help remove the barriers that hold women back from reaching their full potential and build rewarding careers.

The Event was attended by over 106 people from 61 various organsiations from across Wales.

Mark works with the sciences of applied positive psychology and Neuroscience to create happier and more successful workplaces.

Exploring Positivity, Motivation and Trust through an interactive workshop, we identified how increased positivity at work can create greater productivity, wellbeing and engagement at work.

Positivity leads in turn to higher levels of motivation.

Although science has discovered the main factors in motivation, many organisations are still not making the most of these techniques.

Mark provided extensive research backed up with practical examples and we see that there are 3 key factors in creating enduring motivation:

  • Clarity of purpose that every decision is aligned with.
  • Mastery, working to become ever more skilled at what we do.
  • Control, giving back control over meaningful decisions at work.

For these 3 factors to create a truly flourishing workplace they must be underpinned by one final factor, trust.

“Be the change you want to see in your workplace!”

The workshop provided many proven practical ideas for our Hive followers to take away and use immediately in their workplaces.

Thank you to everyone who attended and for making all of the sessions fun and interactive.

A special thank you to our fantastic guest speaker Mark Hodder, our sponsors CMi Cymru and our incredible hosts: DVLA, Lendlease and Airbus Defence and Space.
