    Action Potential Motivation Gap

    The Motivation Gap is specifically designed for health professionals, rehabilitation specialists, psychologists and fitness professionals who want to increase client engagement and improve clinical adherence and outcomes. With a strong foundation of evidence-based best practice, the workshop looks closely at the drivers of self-determination, and how to use autonomy-supporting communication and conversational intelligence to promote rapport-building and engagement. With a unique point of difference, this course synthesizes key change theories from both the health and organizational sectors to present a guiding framework to explore and shift change readiness in clients.

    Action Potential Group Resilience Training


     “The science and practice of empowering people to thrive in change and challenge”

    SOAR is a skills-based program that provides evidence-based best practice skills to improve the overall performance and wellbeing of people.

    Health Psychologist Dr Vanessa Thiele developed SOAR to increase individual capability for resilience and optimism, and arm people with the tools to meet the challenge of change.

    Resilient staff have the ability to remain task-focused, productive and connected to the organizational mission, whilst experiencing tough times. They have the necessary inner strength and resourcefulness to enable them to cope with the impact of commonly-experienced large-scale change, such as

    •    New priorities;
    •    New leadership;
    •    New organizational strategies;
    •    Major change initiatives;
    •    New technologies;
    •    Merger and downsizing.

    “Even when a comprehensive change management strategy is employed, the success of change is influenced by the resilience of individuals to cope with the stress entailed in being at the receiving end of the change”
