Dr Paige Williams
Psychologist – Geelong VIC
Our guest for episode 9 is Dr. Paige Williams. Paige is a leadership mentor, speaker and coach and has done extensive research into the power of positive psychology and its impact on our well-being.
Paige helps leaders learn to thrive through complexity, challenge and change and has seen the positive impact it has – for them, their teams and their organisations.
With more than 20 years’ international business leadership experience, Paige’s expertise lies in making research real, relevant and relatable to the work that leaders do every day.
Through her conference speaking, her leadership programs and her writing, Paige focuses on replacing fear with confidence; replacing confusion with clarity and motivating leaders to create positive purposeful impact for themselves and the people they lead.
An Honorary Fellow of the Centre for Positive Psychology and an Associate of Melbourne Business School, Paige has a PhD in Positive Organisational Psychology, post-graduate studies in Organisational Change and a BA Hons in Business.
Paige’s top well-being tips:
- Monitor your self-talk. Be mindful of what you’re saying to yourself and remember to be kind. If you wouldn’t say it to your best friend, then don’t say it to yourself!
- Check in on your expectations. Pain often sits in the gap between our expectations and reality. Are you being realistic in your expectations?
- Keep ‘learning forward’. When you try something new, ask, ‘What went well? Where did I struggle? What can I learn from this?’ By practicing this often you will develop new neural pathways.
