POPULAR WORKSHOP & TRAINING TOPICS

Understanding & MANAGING Mental Illness: A workshop for Leaders

If you want your Leaders to be able to support their teams and initiate those difficult conversations about stress and mental health, they need to be properly informed and skilled.  That’s what this workshop is all about.

Managing Stress & Building Resilience

Stress is part of life and cannot be avoided, but how it is managed is up to each and every person.

In this workshop you will learn to identify the most significant stressors that deplete your resilience, as well as techniques for managing these more effectively. Your quality of life and productivity not only at work, but at home as well, will improve more than you might currently believe possible.

Burnout

Burnout is possibly one of the most misunderstood mental health conditions in today’s workplaces.  Although it is not considered a medical condition, it was recognised by the World Health Organisation as an “occupational phenomenon” in May 2019.

If you want your Leaders to understand what this “phenomenon” actually is and how to reduce it’s impact on their teams, this workshop is a must.

THE POWER OF BEING ASSERTIVE

If ever there was an untruth when it comes to interpersonal interaction and communication, it is that someone is too assertive. Human beings communicate somewhere on a continuum from passive through assertive to aggressive. It is the people in the assertive range that are most successful and powerful in their interactions regardless of with whom they are interacting be it their colleagues, family members, friends or even strangers.

In this workshop you will learn about what it means to be assertive and the benefits thereof. You will learn and practice some useful techniques to use in developing this style of communication and you’ll never look back.

Remote Communication Epic Fails

In today’s world of multi-generational workplaces, how often has your remote communication with colleagues (and friends) gone terribly wrong?

In this enlightening and fun workshop we take a look at the epic fail potential of remote communication. It is designed to promote more effective communication in today’s workplaces, and in turn optimize team cohesion.
