    How to be Really Happy – Interview with Dr Andy Cope, UK’s Only Doctor of Happiness

    How to be Really Happy – Interview with Dr Andy Cope, UK’s Only Doctor of Happiness

    ‘If you break down your life into 4-minute sections and keep at it you will become one of the 2% of truly happy people’ 

    Lee is with Dr Andy Cope, Author, Teacher, Speaker, Happiness expert and a keen learner. 

    He is the UK’s one and the only doctor of happiness so if he’s having a bad day then the nation is having a bad day. 

    They are discussing the science of well-being and positive psychology. Andy explains how he trundled through life being fairly average before he discovered positive psychology. 

    We know nothing about what’s right with us, psychology has spent many years focusing on what makes us ill, but Andy is asking what makes happy people happy? 

    Happy people live in the same world as everyone else they are subject to the same external experiences but their positive mindset and choice to be happy along with their desire to be the best they can be impacts not only on them but creates a significant ripple effect on those around them, listen in to hear more. 

      

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 
    We are all happy and upbeat sometimes but the world beats the crap out of us and we become ‘mood hoovers’. 
    Mood hoovers suck the happiness out of you and leave you feeling a bit sad and grumpy. It only takes one mood hoover to bring everything down. 
    Happy people choose to be positive. Positivity is a mindset and you can get better at it; happiness is an emotion that you experience when you are in a positive mindset. 
    Take personal responsibility – how can I upgrade me? Doing this puts you in a better place to deal with things. 
    Happiness can only emulate from your thinking. The brain is a problem-solving machine with a negative bias. 
    You have neuroplasticity – your brain is malleable so you can change the way you think. 
    When you feel amazing you are more creative, and there are lots of things you will be able to do that you couldn’t have done before. 
    Culture change starts from inside out, it starts with you first and foremost and when you are feeling amazing it creates a ripple effect.  
    Flourishing is when your happiness is bigger than you and it creates positive spirals of happiness emotion in the people around you. 
    4-minute rule -It’s about being the best version of yourself, when you do this, others around you catch that emotion 
    If you are your best self for 4 minutes others around you have almost no choice other than to catch how you feel. 
    If you are upbeat for the first 4 minutes of a meeting the positivity will carry on. 

     

    BEST MOMENTS 

    ‘You see opportunities when your wellbeing is in balance’ 

    ‘You can create an environment where well-being is the most important element’ 

    ‘What hasn’t happened, that you didn’t want, that you haven’t celebrated’ 

    ‘It’s simple but not easy to do’

    Past, Present or Future - Where Are You?

    Past, Present or Future - Where Are You?

    How much time do you think you spend in the past? How much time do you think you spend in the future? How much time do you think you spend in the present? In this episode Lee explains why it’s so important to live in the present and how it can help you achieve your goals.  

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 
    Consider how much time you’re actually consciously aware of what’s going on right now. 
    Disney, as an example, do an amazing job of getting you to think in the present time because of all of the experiences they give you. 
    You can steer a conversation or meeting by being in the present, don’t worry about the future. 
    Spend more time in the ‘here and now’ especially is you’re working through a process. Engage in the convocation while it’s happening. 
    A way to help you do this is by turning off all mobile devices when you’re trying to spend time with people or achieve a certain goal. 

    BEST MOMENTS 

    ‘Having a moment with someone is because you’re both in the present’ 

    ‘Ask a question and then move on’ 

    ‘Spend time with the people you’re engaging with in the present’

    Making Yourself A Little Bit Famous – with Penny Haslam

    Making Yourself A Little Bit Famous – with Penny Haslam

    This week, Lee talks to former BBC Breakfast presenter, Penny Haslam, who’s become one of the country’s most sought-after motivational speakers, helping others to achieve their optimal confidence levels and providing them with the boost they need in order to succeed.

    But can Penny’s inspiring message help those looking to succeed in business? And how? Find out in this fascinating, empowering conversation.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Penny left broadcasting because she felt as though she could never truly be herself. Moving into motivational speaking is where she feels she has always belonged, as she gets to help people, work with people, and has made numerous connections along the way.
    Media training is hugely expensive and is really only available to a chosen few. Having spent so long in broadcasting and seeing how fame and media training can help businesses succeed, Penny decided to put her considerable experience into helping others become “a little bit famous”
    The old idea of the business persona is gradually slipping these days. It is far more valuable to be ourselves in the business world. Speaking and acting in a natural way is far more appealing.
    Telling stories is an act of development. It comes from trying, failing and eventually succeeding in getting the ingredients just right. Penny’s acronym of FACE is designed to help storytellers develop their skills:
    F - Tell us a Fact
    A - Add a bit of detail
    C - What is your Comment?
    E - Give us an Example
    A common trait among business owners is the sense of static that comes from reaching a certain level of success, and feeling as though they are not being asked to do more. This is in stark contrast to the exciting, early days of growth and invention that kicks off a business’s life.
    Building confidence and engendering faith in one’s self must begin at home. Outwardly, confidence may seem natural to some, but privately confidence is something that many of us work on constantly.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ’No one wants to be a best-kept secret’

    ’The broadcasters need experts, so how do they do that?’

    ’Most sensible people in business have got better things to do than be a massive famous person’

    ‘You’ve got to be a visible leader’

    ‘Preston itself was still the same underneath’

    ‘Be yourself. Be bold as well. And be visible’

    2020 Vision, Jab-Jab-Move & 3 Scripts

    2020 Vision, Jab-Jab-Move & 3 Scripts

    Welcome to the new year—to the new decade! 

    Where do you want your life to go now? It’s always the same question, same habit of doing a new year’s resolution every start of the year. It’s a cycle you need to keep doing (since it will benefit you so much) even though some say it’s useless. Let it be emphasised: getting clear on your vision will never be useless. 

    In the first episode of the Business Problem Solved Podcast this year, we talk about how we can plan better and deliver so much more. Lee, our host, shares DUSC (Desire, Understanding, Skills, Confidence) and Jab, Jab, Move, templates you could follow when setting and achieving goals this 2020. Jab, jab, move is Lee’s most effective way when he’s trying to influence more people. 

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 
    The first day on the calendar are great indicators for you to set clear of your goals and visions of your future. Where do you want your life to head? When do you want IT done? When do you do the following tasks? Knowing your skillset, resources, and timeline lets you aim for a more attainable goal. 
    Jab, Jab, Move – This is Lee’s technique when he’s mentoring and coaching. According to him, it’s vital to know at least two things that you want to consider BEFORE moving forward. What two things do you want to improve? What two can you do to get started? And so forth. 
    For Lee, it’s about helping more people this year and to influence them to do the same. In all honesty, Lee wasn’t expecting the BPS podcast to reach this far. So, as long as there are people who get inspired and educated, he’ll continue producing valuable content. 

    BEST MOMENTS 
    “Jab, jab, move as many times as you possibly can to as many different people.” 
    “For the Business Problem Solved Podcast, I’ve got a big plan this year.”

    DUSC The Acronym to Help You Deliver Change

    DUSC The Acronym to Help You Deliver Change

    In this episode of Business Problems Solved Lee explains what DUSC is and how you can implement it into your life to reach your goals and destinations that you want to reach.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    D = Desire: Having a clear vision and destination that you want to get to, that you have an emotional attachment to. Ensure everyone is moving in the same direction as you and shares the same desire.
    U = Understanding: Ensure everyone understands what role they have to play in getting to the destination.
    S = Skills: Do the team you have have the required skills to get you where you want to get to? Know what good looks like.
    C = Confidence: Ensure your team have the confidence in you and themselves to do what is necessary to get you to your destination.
    Score yourself and see whether you have all 4 of these things and ask your team to score themselves too.
    These can all be delivered through training if any of your team who feel they're missing any of these points other than confidence which usually takes more coaching rather than training. By gaining skills you will gain confidence though.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘DUSC can generally help you'

    'Is it an environment of trust?'

    'Practice the required skills'

    'Understand what 'goog' looks like'
