Jen Rolfe - Positive PsychologyGuest Blogger
Practically Positive laid its roots after Jen studied Psychology at Cambridge University. She was curious about how it applied to the world of work and became fascinated by how it interplays with 'real life' in addition to clinical settings. Before founding her business in 2011, Jen spent a number of years working for a large training consultancy and has written and delivered training workshops to employees across a huge range of sectors in Australia, America, the Middle East, Sweden, the Netherlands and Germany and of course, at home in the UK.
Optimism and positivity didn’t always come naturally to Jen - it’s something she’s practiced and studied over many years, which is testament to how positive psychology can be adopted/embraced by anyone and truly integrated into all aspects of life.
Rather than ‘employee engagement’, Jen believes getting more out of work is contextual and individual. Her MSc in Applied Positive Psychology (2008-2010) focused on answering the question “What does it really mean to flourish at work?”
The transfer we booked via Healing Holidays on the arrival pick up was great, again very pleasant and no problems however on the return we decided to cancel direct with the company as we no longer needed it. We didn't want a refund just called the gentleman to say we didn't want it, on the phone call he was rude, aggressive and refused to cancel still showing up at 2:55am in the hotel lobby in the morning making trouble with the reception staff. Terrible transfer company!!"
