A team of teachers experienced in social-emotional learning along with Professor Michael Bernard have contributed many new lessons.


The NEW Program Achieve curricula (Primary) contains lessons that teach attitudes, values/character strengths and social-emotional skills for success, relationships and wellbeing as well as for overcoming social-emotional blockers.

This highly acclaimed workshop presented to more than 10,000 people across Australia, is designed to promote participant self-awareness and self-management when faced with stressful situations including difficult people.

A specialised focus of the workshop is empowering people with the knowledge that “Things are neither good nor bad but thinking makes it so”. People will learn how to transform stress-creating ways of thinking as well as new coping skills for mastering stress.

It’s no secret top performers contribute a disproportionate amount of output in our organisations. To infuse our organisations with top talent, first we need to know what sets these high performers apart from the rest of the workforce. What are they like and why do they achieve so much? Research conducted with employers revealed the #1 attribute they named as being exhibited by their best performers was problem solving.

This 3-hour/half-day workshop introduces participants to an innovative, high performance problem solving approach created by Professor Michael Bernard, D-CAP.
