Equip participants with the tools to effectively deal with the ever-increasing demands on our time, energy and resources.

New Zealand labour productivity has been declining relative to other OECD countries for decades. We worked, on average, 17% longer than the average of the top half of the OECD to produce about 40% less prior to the arrival of the Covid pandemic in 2020.
It seems New Zealanders are working longer and harder, with less to show for it.
With Thriving, we hope to change that.
