How might you be the best you can be at home with your loved ones?
To have a healthy, loving, positive home environment takes effort. All things worth having take effort.
The good news is: You can grow positivity through knowledge, skills and strategies. You can learn it and when you do, watch how quickly positivity spreads positivity!
A healthy workplace is alive with positive relationships
Leaders listen and care; there’s a high value of trust and your contribution matters.
Work that is fulfilling and satisfying comes from knowing “I matter here, and the work I do is valued and I know where my contribution fits.” Your strengths are used, and relationships with colleagues, management and clients are positive and appreciated. Happy stories build positive potential enabling positive attitudes.
How keen are you to mobilize your community for action with commitment and goodwill?
Supportive relationships are a predictor of a happy life. Continuous growth and learning develop our brains healthily.
You can develop your own positivity muscle and positive attitude with every positive connection you make. With more positivity in your life, you are able to think, feel and act more creativity, be more open to others and build a strong network of relationships.

About Positivity Strategist
Thank you for visiting Positivity Strategist!
My name is Robyn Stratton-Berkessel, known as the Positivity Strategist. I’m a consultant, facilitator, speaker, trainer, coach, writer and podcaster and you’ll find examples of my work scattered throughout this site and on my blog and podcast.
My desire is that you – whatever your current role or organization, leading or following – will find resources here to help you connect to your own best self and have insights about opportunities to achieve your aspirations both professionally and personally.
Participatory change methodologies in the field of human, organization and community development have been the mainstay of my portfolio for 30 years, predominantly in Australia and the United States. Solutions that you are most committed to and support come from within, because you create them yourself, or co-create with others.
The mindset that governs who I am and what I do is appreciative inquiry and positivity, which seeks to find what works rather than what's broken. That’s what I find most rewarding – facilitating ways for people to find their own inner resources of positivity and strengths.
What drives me is giving voice to all!
Robyn Stratton-Berkessel – The Positivity Strategist
“An appreciative voice provides safety for others to speak their truths. It is invitational and watchful. An appreciative voice is unhurried and patient. It can reframe situations to be helpful and resourceful. It is flexible. The appreciative voice is inclusive. It acknowledges diversity and identifies opportunities to offer possibilities to hold the space for transformational shifts to emerge.”
What others are saying
Robyn is easy to work with even under pressure. She brought organization to a complex project and quickly came up to speed. Her persistence helped us make very ambitious deadlines. Robyn is an insightful coach.
We REALLY appreciate you taking the time to assist us in thinking through these questions – and I am sure we will take you up on your offer to continue to assist us.
So impressed with your talent as an interviewer and what you were able to capture. Thanks also for a tool to allow for an understanding of the “bigger picture” of the journey.
I must follow my passion that I have been ignoring for too long! Thank you so much for helping me find that passion again!
Robyn facilitated a two day board strategic planning retreat for ACC&D's board of directors. Her skill in all phases was very much appreciated: from careful listening to what we needed, to designing the process for us to achieve desired results, to a light handed, skilled facilitation that helped us reach those goals, to supporting us on outcome documents. Personally I found her generous in her time and easy to work with – a terrific partner.
Robyn is one of those unique people that can blend theory and practice to deliver real outcomes in workshops and presentations. Her deep knowledge of Appreciative Inquiry and many other tools and techniques gives her versatility and adaptability to work with the widest range of people, teams and organisations. Robyn's extensive network allows her to tap into the latest thinking and research. Robyn is a great source of positive energy and I highly recommend all her work; books, workshops and presentations
Robyn is 100% committed to achieving excellent results and to the people she works with – clients, partners and colleagues. She has tremendous capability in a variety of consulting methodologies and tools (including new technologies) and she is extremely flexible and creative in selecting what's best for the people and situation. Using her open and creative style, Robyn leads large and small groups to the heart of their goals and expertly guides them to think through and build plans to achieve the goals.
With Robyn's leadership, we co-created and co-facilitated a very successful summit. There was great joy in doing what we did. Those who had been tentative admitted to being ‘converted’. There was great learning and great pride. Based on feedback and the unsolicited emails that are being circulated, the Summit over-delivered.
