Stress, Sanity and Leadership

22 October 2019 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 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 scientists, educators, and researchers, we are 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. We often play small or shrink to fit in as we are unsure how to lead effectively. We often struggle with self-confidence, self-belief and can feel overwhelmed by the responsibility and the expected demands when stepping up to lead. These challenges produce high levels of stress and negatively impact our health, relationships, and productivity. There are effective techniques to build skills, address these challenges, and 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
  • As is’ – Build effective methods of calling the situation ‘as-is’
  • New ways to handle stress
  • Instigate new habits
  • Think differently
  • YOU are worth it! Embed the fact that YOU are worth it

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