018 Staff wellbeing, happiness and money with Frederika Roberts

Staff wellbeing in schools is such an important topic. I am delighted to welcome Happiness Speaker Frederika Roberts to talk about staff wellbeing in schools, as well as money and happiness in general. She is a former teacher and currently spends her time helping schools to embed staff wellbeing in schools in a simple and effective way. Not only that, she has authored, co-authored and co-edited multiple wellbeing books.

We talk about how Frederika overcame her trauma of going back to school, her books, some of her positive psychology research, and the importance of giving importance not just to the wellbeing of students but of staff wellbeing in schools. It's a lovely episode with some fabulous tips for being happier in yourself as well as having a happier relationship with money. 

This is definitely an episode you don't want to miss!

This episode is another proof that we learn something new every day. I really find the concept of urge surfing, appreciative inquiry, PERMA strategies and especially whole school wellbeing where representatives of every stakeholder group get involved to improve the processes and systems in a school.
