CORNERSTONES

➢    HOW TO FEEL MORE CONFIDENT

The first step to achieving anything is to believe that you’re capable of it. Learn how to deal with anxiety and increase your self-belief and effectiveness.

Outcomes:               

  • Increased ability to feel and project confidence and to show up with a greater sense of purpose and presence.
  • Higher engagement and lower stress and anxiety.
  • Tools, techniques and clear takeaways that participants can apply in a variety of situations.

 

➢    HOW TO COMMUNICATE BETTER

Everything is built on relationships, and the key to fostering good ones is communication. Your ability to perform at peak depends on communicating well, and your career will depend on mastering it. In this talk, you’ll discover how to inspire, engage and motivate others, how to manage difficult conversations without feeling overwhelmed, and how to use emotional intelligence to make your communication transformational rather than transactional.

  • Better performance, more effective collaboration, and increased engagement.
  • Greater awareness of your impact and its effect on others.
  • Clearer sense of how to influence and engage others using emotional intelligence with opportunities to practice and reflect.

 

➢    HOW TO HAVE DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS

Whether in life, love or at work, how we respond to the potential for difficult conversations can influence our success to a huge degree. Often it is our unconscious patterns that dictate whether we choose to go in guns blazing, avoid the conversation, freeze when we feel under pressure, or fold at the first hurdle. In this powerful workshop, participants will become more aware of their reactivity and patterns and learn how to self-manage and to consciously choose how they want to be and what they want to do in every situation to have the impact they want.

Outcomes:

  • Better self-management, more confidence, greater creativity.
  • Greater awareness and control of your impact and its effect on others.
  • Clearer sense of how to influence and engage others using emotional intelligence with opportunities to practice and reflect.

Outcomes:               

  • Increased self-awareness and understanding of what affects decision-making.
  • Techniques, insights and practices to reduce stress around making decisions and to increase clarity and confidence.

 

➢    HOW TO BUILD BETTER RELATIONSHIPS

When our relationships go well life is more fulfilling: things run smoothly, possibilities open up, we can fulfill our potential and make a greater contribution in the world. When relationships go wrong, few aspects of life hold the power to bring us lower faster and frustrate our progress. Learn the key tools and insights to improve your relationships and perhaps become better, happier, wiser people in the process.

➢    HOW TO TACKLE YOUR INNER CRITIC

Whether it’s the voice that tells you that you’re not good enough, the one that tells you you’re getting a bit too big for your boots, or the one that stays up with you all night picking holes in your work, it’s time to get a handle on those silent assassins once and for all and become more powerfully effective and confident in the process.

Outcomes:               

  • Increased resilience, confidence, creativity, innovation and performance.
  • Lower stress and anxiety.
  • Improved leadership and management skills.

 

➢    HOW TO TACKLE IMPOSTER SYNDROME

It’s a curious psychological phenomenon common amongst high achievers that many don’t own their accomplishments and accolades, fear being exposed as a fraud, and worry about being rejected by others if they show pride in their achievements. If left, Imposter Syndrome can lead to anxiety, self-sabotage, burnout and depression. Get up close and personal with this saboteur and discover not only how to get a handle on it, but how to use it to increase your personal power.

  • Lower stress and anxiety.
  • Improved leadership and management skills.

 

➢    HOW TO LIVE YOUR VALUES

Our values are like our own personal GPS: when we are living them we feel energised and fulfilled; when we don’t, we feel stuck and frustrated. In the day-to-day demands of life we can easily lose track of what fires us up, so in this interactive workshop you’ll practice powerful and engaging methods to identify and reconnect with your values and to help others to do so too. Finally, you’ll create your next steps in putting them into action.

Outcomes:

  • Improved decision-making, direction, confidence, communication, motivation, engagement, resilience, inspiration, creativity, emotional intelligence and energy.
  • Essential for managers and anyone with leadership as a core competency.
  • Effective for new and established teams to build a sense of shared values, generate motivation, cohesion, clarity about aims and how to achieve them, and to reduce toxic conflict.

 

 

LEADERSHIP

 

➢    EMERGING LEADERS

Whatever your personal story of leadership, you are taking the first steps on a life-enhancing journey which promises to fulfil your potential. But, as with any meaningful journey, there are dangers if you don’t actively consider who you are and who you want to be as a leader. Discover how to use your values and sense of purpose to energise yourself and those around you, how to develop your range of leadership styles so you can successfully lead through any circumstances, and how to face storms and emerge even stronger.

Outcomes:

-       Improved decision-making, direction, confidence, communication, motivation, engagement, resilience, inspiration, creativity, emotional intelligence and energy.

-       Essential for managers and anyone with leadership as a core competency.

-       Relevant for organizations seeking to encourage leadership as a way to increase engagement, collaboration, initiative, influence, and to fulfil the potential of individuals and the organization.

 

 

➢    HOW TO DEVELOP AN AUTHENTIC LEADERSHIP STYLE

Effective leadership requires integrity and trustworthiness. Authenticity and independent thinking are key to this, yet often leaders adopt a pre-set list of leadership traits, or worse, potential leaders never step up because they don’t see themselves as conforming to limited models of leadership styles such as extroversion. When you have a clear sense of who you are, you’ll feel more confident to lead with authenticity and integrity.

Outcomes:               

-       Increased self-awareness and impact.

-       Improved confidence, communication, motivation, engagement, resilience, and emotional intelligence.

-       Essential for managers and anyone with leadership as a core competency.

 

 

➢    HOW TO DEVELOP YOUR LEADERSHIP VISION

Leadership is defined in many ways but the common elements that consistently emerge are vision and followership. In order to be a leader, you must have a vision which requires understanding your purpose and the direction that you want to take people in. Followership requires the leader to be able to communicate his/her vision in a way that resonates to inspire action. In this insightful and powerful talk, you’ll learn the techniques and skills of creating and communicating your vision.

Outcomes:               

-       Improved confidence, communication, motivation, and engagement.

-       Essential for anyone with leadership as a core competency.

 

 

➢    HOW TO DEVELOP YOUR LEADERSHIP PRESENCE

Leadership is about impact, about how you show up. Our presence affects the people you want to lead, and yet too often we remain unconscious of it, with the result that we embody a narrow range of leadership presence styles which limits our ability to respond effectively to changing environments. Furthermore, we might not be aware of how our impact negatively affects others. In this workshop, you’ll learn more about yourself as a leader, how you impact others and how to expand your range into fuller, more confident leadership.

Outcomes:               

-       Increased self-awareness, range and awareness of impact.

-       Improved confidence, communication, motivation, engagement, resilience, and emotional intelligence.

-       Essential for managers and anyone with leadership as a core competency.

Outcomes:               

-       Increased self-awareness and impact.

-       Improved confidence, communication, motivation, engagement, resilience, and emotional intelligence.

-       Essential for managers and anyone with leadership as a core competency.

 

WELL-BEING

 

➢    HOW TO MANAGE STRESS AND OPTIMIZE PERFORMANCE

Stress doesn’t always have negative effects. In fact we need ‘good’ stress to grow and to accomplish things. In this interactive workshop, you’ll discover how to notice your stress level through a deeper awareness and observation of your natural responses.
