Quit smoking with beyond nicotine

What makes the Beyond Nicotine approach different?

It is the BN belief that almost every smoker would secretly like to quit, but the psychological pain of breaking the habit and reframing oneself prevents the making of a firm decision to take control. Essentially a fundamental change of mind is needed to set the process in motion, and this can be achieved if the smoker is given the opportunity of:

  1. soberly assessing the current habit,
  2. revisiting the historical build up to the point where one sees oneself as a smoker,
  3. understanding the required road map to freedom from the addiction
  4. appreciating and desiring the vast benefits of succeeding.

This mind change can be activated within the 90 minute workshops proposed for the programme and by studying the information in our BN kit booklet.

As a next step, it is vitally important to encourage our reframing aspect which we believe will result in the long-term success of the quitter. Within a framework of a supportive employer with a clear message, an ethos of a non-smoking and healthier workplace, our accessible and practical programme will show positive results very quickly.

To demonstrate our confidence in our methods, we are happy to run introductory pilot programmes in your HQ and/or selected clients premises at no charge.

WIP (Women INpowered)

WIP is an extremely simple, easy to learn, yet devastatingly effective self INpowerment system that has been designed specifically for women, to give them the mental and physical ability to make a choice in a threatening situation.

WIP challenges all perceptions about self defence

WIP is not self defense (reaction) which is impossible to learn in a short time

WIP is about INpowerment (action) which you will master in a few sessions

WIP is designed specifically for women

WIP has been co-developed and endorsed by ALISON (www.alison.co.za)

Divertsity and inclusion

Thrive’s diversity and inclusion workshops are intended to help HR professionals facilitate an inclusive environment where staff are sensitive to, have respect for and appreciation of differences in ethnicity,

ethnicity,

age

disability

education and

gender,

national origin

sexual orientation

religion.

All corporates are in some way a microcosm of the society in which they operate. The need for diversity and inclusion in our country is more important than ever as we grapple with finding a national identity that is inclusive and tolerant. Our workshops help attendees create a workplace environment that celebrates uniqueness and understands and respects differences.

Our approach to Diversity & Inclusion work is highly experiential. Our expert facilitators create a safe environment for people to reflect on themselves and talk about how D&I issues play out in the workplace. The course is structured in such a way as to ensure that we maintain interest and engagement through using different means of communication such as videos, activities, storytelling and industrial theatre.

We address tough discussion points around the use and abuse of power and privilege, spend time understanding
our unconscious biases, and get participants to take personal responsibility for creating the kind of inclusive
and diverse culture that they would like to work in.
