This workshop is open to all professions and abilities, those that would like to learn new ways to manage stress and build resilience
- Understand how the brain’s survival mechanism produces ‘lower order’ emotional reactions that can be unhelpful in the workplace. The balance between good v unhelpful stress.
- Understand the ‘thinking traps’ we sometimes fall into and how you can step back, strip out the emotion and re-assess and handle pressurised challenges. A group exercise where delegates analyse a previous situation.
- Understand why technology makes us butterfly between tasks and keeps us in a state of ‘continuous partial attention’. Practical ideas on how you can change the way you work to stay focused and be more productive.
- Understand how other aspects of your lifestyle can impact the way the body responds to pressure and can help build resilience.
