Guides to help you make your workplace a fabulous place to work!
MAS guides have been created to help individuals and leaders achieve improvements in wellbeing and increased performance in the workplace.
This page provides an overview of all the guides and guide sets.
The Guide to Adaptive Leadership explains that Adaptive Leadership is a process based on the principle of ‘sharing responsibility for the future success of the organisation’ – shared with everyone in the workforce. The process is based on the knowledge that healthy self interest, and that of others, is tied together. The Guide to Adaptive Leadership is written to help Champions for Change bring about a change in the process of leadership and management.
The Guide explains Adaptive Leadership and sets out the phases of implementation.
This is a Guide to help you look after your psychological health and wellbeing at work, as well as helping others to do the same.
There is a connection between feeling mentally fit and doing things well. You will know yourself that when you feel bright, alert and cheerful you find the energy to do anything and everything. It’s a great feeling to have.
Adopting Psychological Responsibility will help you rejuvenate flagging energy and stimulate enthusiasm to work effectively and productively. You’ll feel much better if you can achieve this, and help others feel the same.
Your route to achieve outstanding success
Dr Mowbray's Guide, ‘Taking a Lead’, provides explanations, frameworks, assessments, questionnaires and exercises for leaders and managers who wish their organisation to achieve outstanding success by persuading their workforce to perform consistently at its peak.
‘Taking a Lead’ is a Leader Development Programme. It is a programme which can be facilitated by Derek Mowbray, or, if your organisation runs its own leadership development programmes internally, it can be used in Action Learning sets – the purchase of the Guide for each delegate accommodates copyright issues.

Brilliant leaders deal with uncertainty, navigate through the maze of conflicting demands, can envision the future, and convey their enthusiasm and complete commitment to achieving great success. Generally,managers deal with processes and certainty. Their lives revolve around completing tasks and delivering what is expected from them.
This Guide helps to transform managers into leaders who lead people. It provides insights into the purpose of leaders, everyday behaviours that inspire, and the behaviours that persuade. It sets out the steps to create a healthy organisation - a pre-requisite for a successful business, one that realises its true and full potential.
The Guide to the Wellbeing and Performance Agenda presents the WellBeing and Performance Agenda, a systemic approach to the prevention of Psychological Presenteeism and the achievement of peak performance. It examines the four key elements: adaptive organisational culture, adaptive leadership, adaptive working environment and the adaptive individual and lays emphasis on the necessity of addressing all four elements as part of a strategic approach to developing an organisation's peak performance.
It is written for Champions for Change, those involved with Organisation and Management Development, and provides the processes to achieve peak performance from individuals and organisations.
The purpose of this Guide is to raise awareness, impart some understanding and skills, and to make a difference by helping Managers to:
Managers operate at all levels of the organisation. They set the tone, the climate and the expectations for the workforce. They wield enormous power over others and it is important that this power is used to achieve mental wellbeing and performance for organisations to achieve consistent peak performance.
This Guide aims to help with the creation of a working environment that provokes positive attitudes and peak performance within the workforce, reduces the events and poor behaviours that may trigger stress and reduces the need for the workforce to call on their resilience.
This Guide examines the psychological environment in which the leaders and workforce are expected to work and makes the link between the psychological environment and the performance of the organisation's people.
It focuses on the organisation as one with a positive culture, timely responsiveness, enhanced reputation, consistent peak performance, and a socially engaged workforce.
In the Guide you will find frameworks, questionnaires and exercises to help with the development of your organisation into one that is resilient, with a psychologically healthy workforce performing consistently at its peak.
This Guide to Personal Resilience is designed to boost Personal Resilience by helping to strengthen your attitude generally, so that when you have to confront a specific challenging event, you have stronger all round personal resilience and a greater understanding of how to face up to and overcome the challenge.
The Personal Resilience Guide contains our Resilience Assessment Questionnaire along with tasks and exercises to complete, which when taken together, will have a positive impact on personal resilience.
The Guide to Team Resilience aims to develop teams as vibrant mini organisations, sensitive to their environment and with the capability and capacity to maintain performance through change and challenge.
The exercises and questionnaires in the Guide require teams to work together to raise awareness and understanding, and collectively develop resilience and the intelligent behaviours found in high performing teams.
