Sep 29, 2018 (9 AM - 4 PM)
Price: $ 95.00 (regular rate)

Low-cost weekend training.

Childhood and adolescence are critical times for emotional and psychological development. During these stages, anxiety patterns can begin that continue into adulthood. Anxiety represents our body’s natural alarm system, signalling the possibility of danger. When this response arises too frequently or intensely and doesn’t match actual situations of danger, it can interfere with life and cause great distress.

We are all influenced by stories. In some of these stories, we are active players; other stories are thrust upon us.

A narrative counselling framework seeks to explore the numerous stories that shape and influence identity, problems, and preferred directions in life.

*early rate expires February 06, 2019

Offered through ACHIEVE Centre for Leadership & Workplace Performance

Leaders find themselves pulled in many directions because of competing demands for their time and attention. When leaders fail to ground themselves and lack focussed intention, they risk doing the wrong things or causing harm to those they lead. Mindful leadership is about becoming more conscious, more intentional and more aware of one’s inner processes.
