Doodle! Remember More
Everyone knows that taking notes helps you remember what you hear. But did you know that doodling will improve your focus and retention more than conventional note-taking? On a Doodle evening, you’ll be encouraged to use coloured pencils, pens or markers to create interesting doodles while listening to interesting speakers. We’ll be inspired by the Mindssage colouring books developed by Soula Neofostistos (purchase encouraged by not required).
Manage Stress with NLP
Too much stress is a killer. It interferes with every aspect of your well-being: sleeping, eating, thinking and connecting are all upset by too much stress. Too little stress will leave you restless, unproductive and uncreative. The key is not to avoid stress but to manage your energy, resourcefulness and outcomes so that stress in your life is challenging not exhausting. We’ll outline an NLP strategy for shifting stress levels so that you can find your best stress level for every situation.
Leadership for Parents
Parents often swing between befriending and bossing their children. Is there a better way? Let’s look at how the NLP model of leadership helps parents connect with their kids, show them the big picture, and support them in owning their own experience. Whether your child is 3 or 30 (or even older), a leader’s perspective and skill set will help you forge a more satisfying relationship that gets better results for you and your kids.
Change Habits with NLP
Are you tired at being at the mercy of your own habits? Most of us have habits we would like to change, but it’s really hard to change a habit. Habits are wired into our brains because they work, because we get something good from doing our bad habits. We do them with so automatically and with so little effort that we often miss the chance to make a change. Learn how to separate your habits from the good they do so that your mind and brain have the energy to try something different.
Find Focus with NLP
How long is your attention span? Most of us struggle to find the focus to stick with something until we see progress. Instead, our minds dart from one thing to another, easily distracted and restless. What would change if you felt clear, directed and focused as dealt with your toughest conversations and most challenging problems? Learn the difference between distraction and useful mind-wandering and create space for the rest your mind needs to create the focus you want.
Relaxed and Ready
If there’s something you really want to achieve, you need to be able to sustain the right mindset and focus to achieve it. You can’t afford distractions and stress to throw you off your best game. The world’s top athletes learn to separate significance from stress so that they can be at their best in their most significant competitions. You can learn too. Come out and experience relaxed and ready, the optimal state for performing when your performance matters most.
Grit: The Mindset of Success
There are different definitions of grit as a personal strength, but they all have two things in common: you know what you want and you’re willing to do what it takes to make it real. In this workshop, we’ll look at knowing what you want in two ways: you’ll think about both purpose and passion. When you know the right thing to do and you’re willing to keep trying until you make it happen, you are more satisfied with your experience while you are working, and more likely to achieve something that will satisfy you.
Meeting New People with NLP
Whatever you want to do or to be, you are going to need other people to participate in your experience and in your success. But it’s not always easy to meet new people, and it’s even harder to form a connection that you both are willing to grow. In this fun, interactive workshop, we’ll practice meeting new people in ways that lead to connection and curiosity. You’ll use what you learn each time you walk into an interview, a networking event, or a meeting with people you don’t yet know.
Jedi Mind Tricks with NLP
What do Jedi Masters know that you don’t know? They follow a simple three part strategy to influence the actions of others:
1) Focus on getting what you want
2) Make a strong connection
3) Say what you want (not what you don’t want)
You’ll be amazed how much changes when you consistently apply this three-step process to ask people to do what you want or need them to do.
