Paul, a successful entrepreneur with 26 years commercial experience, launched the Alchemism Foundation in response to the need he saw for burnout prevention and recovery services and suicide prevention services in the workplace.
One of the key strengths of Resilience4Enterprise is that it has been set up by entrepreneurs and high achievers some of whom have also been mental health service users.
Using Coaching, Assessments, Research, Media and Seminars / Workshops as ways to engage with the corporate workforce, Paul and his faculty now help to develop resilience and positive mental health in the enterprise. The profits from this project will be donated to the Alchemism Charitable Trust which funds bursary PhDs for community activists.
His book “Surviving Commercial Suicide – is your business worth dying for?” will be published in late 2007 or early 2008.
The change I would like to see in Ireland is dealing with burnout/depression and suicide prevention, intervention and post vention from a work environment. I would like to see attitudes from management and staff change about the issue.
