From Surviving to Thriving

Learn effective strategies and relevant tools to consistently perform well and avoid burn out in challenging circumstances
Thursday 4 August, 9am -  10.30am
Online Workshop

On paper we know what works, and what we should do, and think, when we’re under pressure - as we’ve all been. 

It’s simple - but it totally and absolutely - is not easy.

Surviving to Thriving focuses on transferring effective cognitive strategies into useful and relevant tools. The specific skill we need to consistently perform well in challenging circumstances, individually and collaboratively, without crashing or becoming burned-out, don’t develop as a matter of luck or chance.  These are the result of a repeatable and learnable formula that can be applied to a broad range of circumstances and environments.

Workshop Content

Participants will be introduced to an effective overall behavioural construct adapted from Performance, Crisis and Sport Psychology. They will then learn three specific cognitive strategies that can be applied to addressing a broad range of individual and organisational challenges - and achieving specific goals.
