What’s it about

In the first day of this workshop we will explore the major findings from research in resilience and happiness.  You will learn simple practices to increase your happiness and to respond positively in challenging situations allowing you to ‘bounce back’ when set backs occur.  We will explore concepts of emotional intelligence and learn simple tools to increase your satisfaction with your life and your work.  You will learn how to use your body to build your confidence and influence how you are perceived by others.

This strength based workshop will help you to build the skills to maintain your own energy, effectiveness and well-being which will not only make your life better but also increase your effectiveness as a contributor or leader in your workplace.  The follow up online session provides opportunity for reconnection and reflection, sharing insights, exploring and problem solving barriers and further enhancing your skills.
