Welcome to the home of an Octagonal Mindset. As a quick intro Octagonal Mindset is a tool inspired by the IPS Model which is an international evidenced based approach for mental health at work and meaningful employment. It is also reinforced by 30 years of global research completed by Marjolein Lips-Wiersma (2012) ‘Measuring the Meaning of Meaningful Work: Development and Validation of the Comprehensive Meaningful Work Scale (CMWS)’ and her ‘Map of Meaning’. 
"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

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 is a tool in how to apply evidence based research into your daily life. It can be applied internationally and provides daily tactics and strategies to move from 'survive' to 'thrive' through micro group learning (for both small and large groups). It isn't a destination but a journey, would you like to join us?
