Optimising Performance at Work:
Coaching Whole Body Intelligence

Thursday 31 October 2024
9am - 12.30pm
Online via Zoom

It is said that the world of work has moved from VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) to BANI (Brittle, Anxious, Non linear and Incomprehensible).  The levels of stress and anxiety are increasing according to global statistics, along with the rates of quiet quitting, burnout, bullying and incivility at work.

Workplaces are faced with enormous challenges to both care for their staff and ensure optimum performance and productivity, yet for many people they are feeling a lack of connection, understanding and being heard contributing to a negative and downward spiral which is damaging to both individual and their organisation.

This workshop will introduce the concept of working with the whole person in the workplace, through accessing and optimizing their multiple intelligences and offering an embodied approach to coaching at work.

  • Are you aware for yourself – or your staff – which intelligences are being used (and not used)?

  • How does this impact on their working day?

  • Do you know how to identify people’s intelligence preferences and ensure you communicate appropriately in language they understand?

  • Are you curious for yourself whether you are optimizing your own inner wisdom through optimizing and aligning your multiple intelligences?

Come along and learn a new approach to coaching skills in the workplace to optimize performance and well being.

Learning Outcomes

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn about the role of different intelligences and how they can be applied in the workplace

  • Identify your own preferences in intelligences in relation to decision making

  • Understand how people with different intelligence preferences communicate differently

  • Explore how to work with multiple intelligences in coaching style work based conversations

Date and Time

Thursday 31 October, 9am - 12.30pm.
You will be sent the details to access ZOOM, 1 week prior to the workshop.

This is an interactive workshop with breakout room activities and we therefore ask all participants to have their own computer / laptop as this enhances the learning for all.
