Do You Want To Help People Thrive?

Are you drowning in a sea of wellbeing research and ideas?

Not sure how to put that knowledge and information together in a simple, evidence-based and practical way that busy people can immediately apply and see results?


Let’s face it, it can be hard to keep up with all the great new research appearing daily on how we can improve our wellbeing. And while evidence-based insights instill confidence, they’re not always easy to apply practically in busy workplaces.

Imagine what it would feel like if you could:

  • Teach people the recipe for thriving based on what you’ve learned from listening to the latest research packaged in a short series of podcasts, with detailed cheat sheets containing individual and team challenges that you can immediately apply.
  • Give your teams everything they need to map and merge their strengths, so they can improve their levels of productivity, turnover, and customer satisfaction.
  • Help people to improve their relationships at work by giving them the tools they need to create psychological safety, practice compassion, and have more kind conversations with each other.
  • Support people in accomplishing more of the things that matter most to them by cultivating their grit, practicing growth mindsets, and reaching for self-compassion.

If this is the kind of difference you want to make for others, then our Wellbeing Lab Toolbox gives you everything you need at the click of a button.

Here’s Why You Can Trust Us.

Hi, I’m Michelle McQuaid, and these days I’m a best-selling author, workplace wellbeing teacher, and playful change activator who works with organizations and schools around the world to help people and teams thrive.

But it wasn’t always this way.

Ten years ago I completed my Masters in Applied Positive Psychology with Professor Martin Seligman. I thought once I’d learned all the latest science on wellbeing, I’d be all set to make a difference in workplaces. Then I ran my first workshop. In an auditing firm of all places. And I quickly realized that, despite liking the fact that what I was teaching them was evidence-based, they really just wanted practical ways to be able to immediately integrate these ideas into their already too busy days.

Michelle McQuaid

There was nothing in the academic articles or books that told me how to do this.

So I began interviewing researchers and coaching leaders, and experimenting with teams to try and help people become more intelligent, active participants in shaping their own wellbeing each day at work. A few years later, an independent assessment of our programs by the University of Melbourne found that more than 91% of our workshop participants were confident they could apply the knowledge and skills they learnt, and 98% recommended our programs to their peers. Phew!

But how could we share what we learned, to help more people truly thrive at work?

It was clear that one practitioner alone could never meet the growing need for helping people to improve their wellbeing at work. So I spent the next few years packaging these ideas up in a way that was credible, accessible, and affordable, so that teachers, coaches, and leaders just like you could steal these tools with pride and help more workplaces to thrive.

Now, with the help of the incredible facilitation queen, Rebecca Melville, and our Wellbeing Lab team, we’ve packaged everything we’ve learned about workplace wellbeing into our done-for-you, steal-it-with-pride, Wellbeing Lab Toolbox. It is our heartfelt hope that it helps you and others to thrive.

Introducing The
Wellbeing Lab Toolbox

The Wellbeing Lab Toolbox is a collection of podcasts, step-by-step guides, videos, cheat sheets, and play sheets that you can use to improve people’s wellbeing in workplaces.

This practical, easy-to-implement, evidence-based toolbox has been created for wellbeing teachers, facilitators, coaches, coordinators, team leaders, and HR professionals.

You’ll get everything you need to coach, teach, and support people so they can increase their confidence, have honest conversations with each other, and accomplish more of what matters most to them.

Designed to leverage Professor Martin Seligman’s PERMA wellbeing framework, the content provides an easy way to bring these pillars to life. The materials are written in such a way, however, that they can easily be slotted into any other wellbeing framework.

Here’s What You’ll Get in The Wellbeing Lab Toolbox:

Module 1: PERMAH Wellbeing Podcast Series

This seven-part podcast series – complete with cheat sheets and real-world challenges for individuals and teams – gives you evidence-based, practical approaches to consistently improve workplace wellbeing using the PERMAH framework.

The series includes episodes on:

  • Discovering the formula for thriving at work
  • Maximizing energy
  • Boosting resilience
  • Developing strengths
  • Creating better connections
  • Making work more meaningful
  • Building grit

Module 2: Teaming with Strengths Toolbox

Can your team members easily name each other’s strengths? If you can’t confidently answer yes, this toolbox can help. It contains more than 10 different exercises to help your teams:

  • Start spotting each other’s strengths.
  • Understand how they can align and complement their strengths to improve their performance.
  • Navigate strength collisions.
  • Give each other regular and effective strengths-feedback.

Module 3: Building Psychological Safety Toolbox

Research has shown that the highest-performing teams have one thing in common: psychological safety - the belief that they won’t be punished for taking risks, making mistakes, or speaking honestly. This digital toolbox gives you everything you need to:

  • Have kind conversations – even if they are uncomfortable or awkward - that support each other’s learning and growth, rather than judging, blaming, or shaming each other.
  • Build a growth mindset culture that supports innovation, risk and failure as pathways to realizing potential.
  • Get appreciatively curious by creating safe spaces where everyone can have a voice to discover what’s working, dream of what’s possible, design pathways forward and deploy the ideas and actions they truly care about.
  • Invest in a culture of generosity by encouraging people to be self-protective givers with strength-focused boundaries.
  • Understand how everyday acts of incivility – like picking up your phone during a conversation to check your messages – can drain trust and damage relationships.

Module 4: Cultivating Grit Toolbox

Having grit – the passion and perseverance to pursue long-term goals in the face of setback, disappointments, and plateaus – is a key predictor of success for employees and teams in your organization. This digital toolbox gives you everything you need to:

  • Find and cultivate harmonious passions that make a positive difference without burning people out.
  • Practice a growth mindset by setting learning goals that enhance performance and wellbeing.
  • Reach for self-compassion rather than self-criticism to improve confidence, motivation and resilience.
  • Harness pro-social emotions like gratitude, compassion and authentic pride to boost self-regualtion.
  • Avoid stupid grit and know when the accomplishment of a goal is longer positive for you or others.

"I’m so much happier. I’m more optimistic. And I have a very different level of confidence than before." Claire George

“It was a very pivotal moment in my career. I was plagued with the constant belief that I wasn’t good enough. But instead of trying to fix what was broken (e.g. my weaknesses), I learned to put my time, my energy and my efforts into things that I’m actually good at. Since that time, I have changed what I’m doing at my work so my role is more in line with strengths. I’m so much happier. I’m more optimistic. And I have a very different level of confidence than before.”

Here’s How The Wellbeing Lab Toolbox Works:

  • As soon as you sign up, you’ll get instant access to the entire toolbox. That means all the podcast recordings, step-by-step e-Book guides, videos, cheat sheets, and play sheets to help you improve wellbeing in the workplace.
  • You’ll have lifetime access to the entire toolbox, so you’ll always have everything right at your fingertips when you need it.
  • This is an instantly accessible, digital product – not a live class – so there’s no need to be on the phone or online at a certain time. There’s no pressure to keep up with a certain timetable, because you can go through the individual components and resources at your own pace, and you don’t have to wait for content to be released, because everything is available to you right away.
  • You can download, print, re-brand, and steal-with-pride any of the materials in this toolbox to help others thrive at work. The only exception is the podcast recordings which we ask you to enjoy for yourself. However, you are welcome to share the cheat sheets, and if you love the podcasts and want to give them to others, just reach out and we’ll help you figure out the best way to do this.
