When we frame the problem and solution as external—that something outside of us needs to change before we can feel better or be happy—then we are victims of our environments.
Most of us don’t even know that we are doing it because nobody has ever shown us a different way. We just go along with everyone else and blame the problems we are experiencing on our bosses/coworkers/workload/hours or fill-in-the-blank.
This workshop will show you how to put your focus and energy where you have control and power—yourself!
You will learn how to change your physical, emotional, perceptual and behavioral reactions into intentional efficient responses conducted inside a comfortable body.
Sounds like magic? Well, it’s not. The resiliency skills you will learn in this training are grounded in good science and are evidence-based.
- Identify the true causes of stress in your personal and professional life.
- Outline skills for successful internal self-regulation.
- Maintain comfort and maximal performance regardless of the external contexts.
- Develop knowledge and skills necessary for enhanced resiliency.
