9 questions I think could change your outlook on life.

2 Mar

Following a recent staff development session with Michael Finnigan from i2i the following 9 questions are ones Michael talked to us about and has on his website. A great way to start thinking about what you want from life and how you are going to get it.

 

1. Focus

In life, we tend not to get what we would like, so much as what we will settle for.

What is good enough for you?

What will you be devastated at missing out on?

 

2. Benefit

What will it mean to you to achieve your goals?

How big a prize are they for you?

What exactly will it mean for you?

Do you have a clear picture of success?

Focus on the benefits you will receive.

 

3. Sacrifice

What extra effort can be made in pursuit of your goals?

How would the greatest individuals of all time prepare themselves for success?

 

4. Desire

In a task that 99% of people would have given up on would you?

How much do your goals mean to you?

 

5. Discipline

Discipline is a hot topic right now.

Discipline is how you behave when nobody is looking and when nobody will ever know.

Will you work that extra five minutes or make one extra call… or not?

 

6. Luck

Are you going to create  luck for yourself?

Are you going to focus on it?

Are you going to have a positive mindset, take action, meet people and make things happen?

 

7. Calmness

How are you going to react if things start to go against you?

Will you panic or stick to your plans?

Will you show emotional resilience or be rudderless?

 

8. Resolve

In the face of any obstacles, will you remain resolutely focussed on your goal or will you quietly set a lower goal?

Will you show resistance to setbacks?

Will interim failure make you stronger?

 

9. Confidence

Will you display genuine confidence in the way you walk and talk when you do not know you are being watched?

Will your unconscious signals indicate certainty or doubt?

Corporate Health – Occupational Health Innovators – History Part 1

28 Feb

Shortly after the war in 1945 Sir Noel Mobbs set up what is now Corporate Health, originally a project set up in Slough due to the diversity of industry on the trading estate. The team started to develop and support what is now commonly known as Occupational Health.

In 1947 before the NHS had been created the doors of the medical centre were opened with 50 local companies using the facility to help prevent absence and accidents and assist in the rehab and well-being of nearly 6000 employees. By 1963 over 300 companies and 27,000 employees were using the services. In 2013 we look after over 700 companies spread across the UK.

set up as a charity in 1947 the objects to support the development, research and training of occupational medicine are still maintained today as is the innovative approach to Occupational Health.

I will be taking extracts from Dr Eagger’s book ‘Venture into industry’ which was commissioned by the Council of management as a record detailing the success and findings of the service between 1947 and 1963. It is fair to say Sir Mobb’s and his team were innovators and have contributed significantly to the service and methods we now use.

Corporate Health provides a national service provision offering the full range of OH services, during the past 66 years we have helped train Occupational Health Physicians and Occupational Health nurses. The charity continues to support the Mobbs fellowship allowing OHP’s to travel abroad to research different Occupational Health projects.

In upcoming Blogs I will share with you:-

  • Why Slough
  • Development of OH services in Great Britain
  • The Origins
  • Development of the Slough OH service
  • The Casualty Service
  • The Rehab Services
  • Occupational hygiene services
  • Social Services
  • The records
  • The Future as it was in 1963
