What’s it all about?

We all have an inner voice that tells us when we need to have a difficult conversation with someone—a conversation that, if it took place, would improve the workplace for ourselves and for everyone else on our team. Many leaders find these conversations challenging and this avoidance can contribute to deterioration of culture, morale and performance.

Mindfulness is not a soft option, it is in fact one of the fastest growing tools for resilience, effectiveness, wellbeing and leadership. In this workshop leaders gain skills in using mindfulness to manage difficult thoughts and feelings that arise when facing a difficult conversation and to approach the conversation with openness and curiosity.

 

In this session we will explore:

  • What is mindfulness?
  • Integrating mindfulness at work and home
  • Using mindfulness to improve focus, concentration and decision making
  • Using mindfulness to unhook from unhelpful thinking
  • Practical application of mindfulness as a tool for engaging in challenging conversations

What’s it all about?

Workshop participants gain understanding of their own communication styles and preferences, including natural tendencies for reaction in a range of contexts. Participants will explore what it means both to communicate assertively to ensure their needs are communicated and understood, and to listen effectively to ensure the message of others is heard.

This interactive workshop leaves participants feeling more confident and skilled to engage in challenging conversations, how and when to say ‘no’, and to communicate their needs effectively.

 

In this session we will explore:

  • Assertiveness and the benefits of assertive behaviour
  • Communication and behaviour styles and how to adapt these to a range of situations
  • Strategies to assist in communicating assertively
  • Responding to passive or aggressive behaviour
  • Active listening
  • Giving and receiving feedback
