Wellbeing and leadership workshops

Purchase a workshop before the 30th June and then contact us to book your training session. Typically lunch and learn workshops range from between 50 minutes up to 90 minutes – let us know your requirements. The sessions can be delivered in person in Sydney or Townsville and via Teams or Zoom for other areas.

1 – The lost art of deep listening: Only 2% of leaders have ever received training on listening. However, leaders typically spend 64% to 83% of their day listening. The more senior your role, the more critical listening is to your career progress. In the session, we will explore some of the science behind listening and distraction and explore five levels of deep listening – Yourself, Content, Context, The Unsaid and Real Meaning.

 

2 – Exhausted at work: why are so many people feeling exhausted at work, and what can we do about it? In this session, we explore the impact of data deluge on our wellbeing and efficiency and equip you with practical tools to replenish seven areas of energy deficit and recovery – mental, emotional, spiritual, social, creative, sensory and physical.

 

3 – Understanding and leading the generations – Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, baby boomers – why do so many disagreements and misunderstandings occur between the generations at work? When you are born, your experiences determine the things you have in life – politics, the flow of information, cultural norms, history, and so on. We are imprinted by the times we grow up in, leading to changes in our personalities, the way the neurons in our brains fire, our values, and how we work. In this session, we will explore the generational differences and how we develop new languages to collaborate, incentivise, and give each other feedback.

 

4 – Playing to our strengths at work: research has identified that 70% of us struggle to articulate where our strengths lie. In this session, we explore a simple tool called strengths-profile, which analyses strengths at work into the following categories:

  • Realised strengths – the things you do well, regularly use at work, and give you a buzz – do these more often but use them wisely.
  • Learned behaviours are the things you are good at, but using them too often can deplete you.
  • Weaknesses – the things you perform poorly, dislike doing and drain your energy – if possible, avoid and explore how to address this with support from the team.
  • Unrealised the strengths – the gold! The things you are great at and love to do but don’t use much in your current role.

The session will help colleagues understand better how to identify, celebrate and use their own and colleagues’ strengths in order to build resilience, collaborate better and align strengths with their career goals.

 

5 – Learning the difference between good stress and bad stress at work: Emotional intelligence expert Susan David said in one of her talks, “”Discomfort is the price of admission to a meaningful life.” Negative emotions and sensations arise because we care about our work, professionalism, and values. In this session, we explore resiliency – how to lean into and learn from difficult feelings which might arise when we receive tough feedback or feel we have failed at a task. By the end of the session, you will better identify the good stress (which enables positive change) and the bad stress, which can lead to self-doubt, withdrawal and procrastination. And you will learn the leavers you can pull to reduce stress when necessary.

 

6 – Emotional leadership at work – what is emotional intelligence, what is the business case for developing emotional intelligence and can you develop new positive emotionally agile capabilities at work?
