Braver Stronger Smarter was developed by Dr Terri Simpkin; a forward thinking academic, professional consultant and public speaker.
She has been working with private organisations, industry representative bodies, public sector organisations and governments across the globe for over 15 years, assisting to develop intelligent, aligned and overall, better workplaces.
We help organisations create opportunities for people to be better each day than they were the day before; better at work and feeling better about their achievements in all areas of life.
Based on sound, empirical research and an understanding of organisational practice, we provide activities and services that educate, entertain and engage.
Braver Stronger Smarter is part of a broad range of services designed and delivered by Mischief Business Engineering Ltd.
The programme presents a consolidated suite of contemporary workshops, research, policy advice and professional consulting services. It addresses key issues faced by today's workplaces and communities.
We see the big picture and variously work with entire organisations, teams and individuals to enable positive and practical change.
“...you are braver than you believe,
and stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.”
(A. A. Milne)
DARE TO BE BETTER
Inspiring, interactive workshops to help you identify and deal with the feeling of being a fraud or unworthy of achievements and success.
Experiences of the Impostor Phenomenon can prevent achievement and career advancement. Knowing what it is and how to deal with it can liberate potential of organisations and individuals.
Based on current empirical research by Dr Terri Simpkin and existing thought, workshops entertain, educate and engage.
Open workshops for individuals.
Bespoke workshops and awareness training for groups, managers and research supervisors (university based programmes).
Implicit bias can prevent organisations engaging the most capable people and diminishes the opportunity for people to be at their best. It can also lead to overt discrimination and unlawful treatment of others.
We all have a level of unconscious (or implicit) bias. Knowing how to recognise it and deal with it is key to ensuring that groups and individuals are given the best opportunity possible to be great at what they do.
Open workshops for individuals.
Bespoke workshops and awareness training for groups, managers and leaders.
It’s not just people and their behaviour that can limit capability, engagement and achievement.
Workplace structures, policies and even language can limit people from being as good as they should be.
We will work with you to recognise implicit and overt barriers in workplace structures. We’ll help you realise how your policies, procedures and workplace language can openly discriminate or foster a culture of implicit exclusion.
We create opportunities to reengineer structures to encourage engagement and find rewards in diversity.
