DescriptionDo you think that learning to give a free gift would help you to celebrate and support your colleagues’ efforts, and end or begin the year on a positive note? Workplace stress is on the rise. According to the Trades Union Congress: “55% of workers feel that work is getting more intense and demanding”. The feelings and thoughts from this rise drives a lack of confidence and focus to end 2023 and plan for 2024. The good news is that MMS can help. They are running Gift of Gratitude Workshops in collaboration with a team of professional photographers. The workshops draw on proven mental health theory and practice focused on gestures of gratitude. The mind thrives on validation and recognition and the simple act of expressing gratitude can empower employees to regain control and build resilience in their working lives and with their colleagues. 94% of UK adults own a smartphone, making it possible for most of the country’s adult population to get involved with this simple but effective technique. Both those who give and those who receive photographic gestures of gratitude are sure to reap the rewards. The gratitude technique builds group resilience to plan and hit the ground running to hit their Q1 2024 targets. Patrick Melville, founder of MMS, works alongside a team of professional photographers, including Felicia Chavasse, owner of Parka and Boots Photography, who provide practical techniques to enable delegates to express gratitude. Minimum attendees is 10 for this workshop
