Program structure

I will work together with you to create a program structure that suits you and your work schedule. You may choose to conduct the workshops at your own place of work or elsewhere. The program is flexible and supports the demands of the busy work environment.

Harness the Power of Habits

Despite our best intentions, creating change can be hard. Learn how you can create lasting change by harnessing the power of habits. With much of our daily lives & routines shaped by habit, learn how creating new habits, and replacing old ones can lead to tremendous positive change in our lives.

Practical information

You may book any combination of the workshops, although we generally recommend following all five. If you book more than one, you should allow a week between them so that the participants can familiarise themselves with the tools acquired before the following workshop. Each of the five workshops lasts preferably 1½ hours, and in any case no less than 1 hour. Workshops may be scheduled at any time of the working day, including lunchtime.


A conference or presentation room or lecture theatre is best. Class size can be anywhere from 5 to 30 or more. The program is led by Seamus Ruane. Seamus is a Community Pharmacist & Certified Applied Positive Psychology Practitioner. He conducts evidence based, positive psychology workshops for communities, corporate clients and individuals that lead to appreciable results in terms of improved wellbeing, performance boost, employee engagement, and stress reduction.
