Stress, Sanity And Leadership – Leading Ourselves And Then Others: Te Ārahi I Te Tangata Kē

24 September 2019 @ 2:15 pm - 3:00 pm

Leadership is often seen as something for the elite, the special few who accept a role that involves the words ‘manager’ or ‘team leader’. However, we are all leaders of ourselves first (otherwise we would not start the day) and as occupational therapists, educators, and researchers, leaders of others. This call to leadership demands understanding of our innate strengths, our values and our abilities to stand up and be our true authentic selves.  Authentic Leadership provides the tools and strategies to step outside the traditional, confining roles of process and one size fits all, to enable each individual to stand tall, shine their light and be seen. We often play small or shrink to fit in as we are unsure how to lead effectively. We also struggle with self-confidence, self-belief and can feel overwhelmed by the responsibility and the expected demands when stepping up. This can lead to high levels of stress and negatively impact our health, relationships, and productivity. There are effective ways to build skills and address these situations to manage stress in an empowering way. This workshop will present the ‘Six steps to sanity’ that each individual can implement to tame the beast of stress and step into their own power as an Authentic Leader.

Each participant will learn how to:

  • Scan and notice the reality of the situation
  • Build effective methods of calling the situation ‘As-is’
  • Plan New ways to handle stress
  • Instigate new habits
  • Think differently
  • Embed the fact that You are worth it

These ‘Six steps to sanity’ are actionable by every individual regardless of job title, to decrease stress, increase sanity and overall health, to build effective and sustainable leadership of self and others in all areas of life and career.
