Productive People specialises in the workplace application of the latest evidence-based research in neuroscience, positive psychology & emotional intelligence to improve business outcomes.
Beyond normal training, we provide people with tools that help them become more effective, balanced and productive, then develop habits to stay that way.
The science and practice of improving business outcomes through engaged people
It works by improving the engagement, attitudes, self management, creativity and resilience of your workforce.
Developed over a decade, it is the practical application of neuroscience and positive psychology that changes behaviours and the overall stability, and performance of your staff, and as a result improves the performance the organisation.
The program uses research-based findings from the most highly regarded researchers such as Dr Martin Seligman, Dr Alex Linley, Prof Chris Peterson, Dr Robert Biswas-Diener, Prof Carol Dweck, Prof Barbara Fredrickson, Dr Karen Reivich, Dr Andrew Shatte and Prof Sonia Lyubomirsky.

The best course I have ever done. Thank you so much!
Fabulous program which really hit the spot with me. The content was an excellent balance of instruction and fun games which demonstrated the message very effectively. There is a lot I will draw from in future. Great work!
"I felt the course was well designed and relevant to both my personal and professional life. The presenter (Simon) definitely gave the impression that he personally used these tools everyday and benefited from them which was encouraging!"
"I found ORANGES to be the most professional and personally rewarding/relevant course I have ever attended. It was personal and emotionally challenging, rather than solely being about work, e.g. managing difficult clients/communication etc... however is still so relevant to our day-to-day work, e.g. coping/emotions/attitude etc. I would definitely recommend ORANGES to colleagues, senior managers and Executives alike."
"This was a very valuable course for me, I feel higher management need to attend this sort of course as well as the staff."
On average, people say they spend approximately 80% of their time at work completing tasks related to the skills and tools learn in ORANGES
Developed over a decade, with continuous updates based on the most rigorous and extensive academic research from the world's leading universities (such as Harvard, Stanford, Pennsylvania, Melbourne, California, Oxford) and most highly regarded researchers such as Dr Martin Seligman, Dr Alex Linley, Prof Chris Peterson, Dr Robert Biswas-Diener, Prof Carol Dweck, Prof Barbara Fredrickson, Dr Karen Reivich, Dr Andrew Shatte and Prof Sonia Lyubomirsky, this unique program is designed to help people (and therefore their organisations) be more resilient, optimistic, productive, efficient and happier. Based on the science and practices of positive psychology, ORANGES provides individuals, teams and whole businesses with the skills and tools to create greater optimal functioning people and organisations.
The ORANGES program is practical and the tools provided change how people think, approach issues, and manage their own responses, behaviours and performance in all aspects of their life.
It's vital we keep the changes and new mindsets alive until they become habits, and see the improved performance become the normal. So we have to put together a range of resources, that accommodate all learning styles, and continue to use the most up-to-date, rigorous research to help people develop lifelong habits.
There's nothing like having the experience again, so anyone who has attended a class - inhouse or public can re-take the course for free on a PD Training public class (subject to availability for 12 months).
If organisations book a follow up coaching session for people who have already attended ORANGES within 90-days of the original course it will be provided ½ price.

Monthly concise reminders about key concepts from the workshops.
Through a challenging activity participants are required to build a Lego character. Challenging elements of the activity are designed to build resilience. The research shows that through the stimulus of participating in the activity, you will be creating a new neural pathway in your brain to build your resilience and that by looking at this piece on a regular basis, you will reinforce those stimuli.
Participants complete their ORANGES inventory online, and can download or review the report any time. They can re-take their inventory any time to see their improvement in different scores.
