Topics
  • Cause  Connection Care Webinar Series
    Resilience is no longer about absorbing pressure and bouncing back, its about moving forwards by linking the Limbic system (motivation) and Prefrontal Cortex (decision making) parts of our brain. This series of webinars will help keep staffed engaged, protect mental health and wellbeing, maximise efficiency and discretionary effort while in isolation or semi isolation and focus on the positives and possibilities.
    • Session 1
      Cause…reflecting on your passions, realigning your ’strong why’ for current role within the current environment ... getting excited again and making a contribution.
    • Session 2
      Connection … both with people and nature.  Making the effort to reach out, helping others avoid isolation, controlling your thoughts and protecting quality relationships.
    • Session 3
      Care … self care through 6 vital factors and the right daily and weekly habits.
  • The Go Zone
    • Embrace peak performance.  Do the important things without excuse or distraction (Go Zone).  Develop a habit to get more of the important things done in your most effective manner, while enjoying periods of lower intensity (Slow Zones) and total recovery (No Zones).  Practical techniques to boost productivity, personal effectiveness and resilience. Ideal for anyone interested in sustainable peak performance.
  • Peak Performance, High Performance Teams
    • Culture is 8 times more powerful than strategy!  The magic happens when people make discretionary effort, voluntary effort.   High performing teams maximise the contributions from Volunteers, Survivors, Critics and Prisoners.  Learn how to use the twin pillars of truly effective leadership, Challenge and Recognition to transform your group into a truly high performance team, and have a lot of fun in the process.
  • Embracing Change
    • People benefit most from change when they embrace it.  Learn to move past Denial (the Titanic can’t sink) and Resistance (It’s not fair, I’m staying on board) Learn how to begin a change journey with Adjustment (better check for lifeboats just in case) and Acceptance (better here in the lifeboat than back on the sinking ship).  This session is designed to give people a lift, to see change as a positive and an opportunity, rather than an additional burden.
