The Centre is a small organisation with limited staff. We work mainly through associates.

The Centre currently has one full-time and one part-time member of staff. Others are involved but as associates or freelances.

Carol Craig – Chief Executive

The Centre was founded by Carol Craig after the success of her first book The Scots' Crisis of Confidence and the well received Tipping Point Event in 2004. Carol is the driving force of the Centre and is constantly seeking new and innovative ideas to ensure that it maintains its unique and successful role as a leading organisation in the field of Positive Psychology. She speaks regularly at various external events and workshops all over Scotland and beyond as well as speaking at Centre events. Carol has recently written a second book entitled Creating Confidence: a handbook for professionals working with young people that has already generated a great deal of interest and publicity. Her most recent publication (2010) is The Tears that Made the Clyde: Well-being in Glasgow.

Prior to setting up the Centre, Carol ran her own training and development business specialising in personal and team development. Carol has a B.A. in politics from the University of Strathclyde and a Ph.D. in politics from the University of Edinburgh. In July 2006 she was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Abertay.

In the first few years of operation the Centre’s work was particularly centred on Positive Psychology. Now the Centre, under Carol's leadership, is broadening its agenda and forging new ways to think about confidence and well-being.
