The OptimiseQ Philosophy

It doesn’t matter how old you are, your gender, your job, or your life circumstance, we are all subject to influences which have the capacity to enhance or detract from wellbeing.
The first step in taking control to improve your current level of wellbeing, is acknowledging that it goes up and down, depending on what is happening to you and those around you.
The next step involves identifying the areas which need attention and then experimenting with possible improvement strategies.
OptimiseQ is dedicated to increasing your knowledge and motivation to make a positive difference in your own life, by providing you with information, tips and tools.

OptimiseQ is dedicated to improving your intelligence about how to optimise life at work and at home – what we like to call “OQ”.

By assisting individuals to lift their OQ Score, their personal lives both at work and at home will become more fulfilling and productive.

By assisting organisations to lift their organisational OQ score, the organisation can improve staff engagement, productivity and overall performance.

For Organisations…

  • An organisation-wide audit which provides an indicative OQ score to help organisations understand their strengths and weaknesses in the wellbeing arena
  • A range of very powerful Seminars in a Lunch-and-Learn Program to help staff develop knowledge and skills over time
  • Wellbeing Advisory Services including Optimiser Training, to transfer skills in a practical, cost-effective manner, so that the organisation can over time develop its own internal ability to grow staff wellbeing

For Individuals…

  • OptimiseQ is a dedicated wellbeing hub using wisdom drawn from the fields of Biology, Physiology, Neuroscience, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, and Management Theory to create a powerful repository on how to navigate life more effectively
  • Optimise Q will help you diagnose and improve your wellbeing by providing a wealth of information through news articles, book extracts, videos and podcasts, all of which are updated regularly and includes a shortform diagnostic tool (OQ Scorecard)
  • Because each of us have different levels of wellbeing, OptimiseQ is a platform that allows you to browse what is most relevant to you

Five key areas…

 

                • Physical – looking after your body
