"I am a bit of a geek. I have read hundreds of business books to learn how to lead and to innovate. It is not easy when you have 2000 shops, like we do, but the best ideas are simple. The idea that is consistently nurtured in successful organisations, is having a culture of kindness at its core. Ethical, kind capitalism can be a very positive force. For us this means leading with love and kindness. Demonstrating genuine love for your colleagues is commercially very powerful. An Octagonal Mindset is a helpful interactive guide in demonstrating the power of love in the workplace and how to do this. It provides useful strategies to remove the perceived difficulties of how to love, be kind to each other and to ourselves."
James Timpson, Chief Executive of Timpson, OBE 

“Through an Octagonal Mindset, Sharron Frammingham brings creativity, love and wisdom to the big questions that plague us. Anyone who reads her words thoughtfully will find the encouragement and passion to live life to the full.”
Dr Roger Bretherton, Clinical Psychologist and Associate Professor, Lincoln University

Research has shown that meaningful and sustainable employment is the BEST thing for our mental health. It is better than any other psychiatric intervention; better than medication, counselling or any therapy. However, it does not always feel like it.

An Octagonal Mindset applies evidence based research into your daily life so that your work becomes meaningful and sustainable. It can be applied internationally and provides daily tactics and strategies to move from 'survive' to 'thrive' through microlearning (for small or large groups or independent learning). It isn't a destination but a journey, would you like to join us?
