Calm

In order to assist the small and start-up business community, the School of Life offers a selection of key business workshops in our public program. These provide a cost-effective way for start-ups or smaller businesses to access the support of developing key emotional skills to thrive in the professional lives and to sustain themselves, others and their business over time.

The business workshops running for our Autumn Program include: Calm; Purpose; AdaptabilityObjectivitySelf-AwarenessLeadership; and Resilience.

No one is calm all the time. Nor should we be; a touch of fear and adrenaline can be useful and helps us to perform in tight situations. However, many of us struggle in our jobs with excessive stress, anxiety and burnout. Indeed, stress and mental ill health costs the Australian economy upwards of $60 billion a year.

In this three-hour session, we will:

• Consider why experiencing change can be so difficult

• Learn to cope with challenges and setbacks without anxiety, panic or despair

• Create a toolbox of resources to use when times get tough and learn how to develop new, more useful coping strategies

• Explore how we might take a new perspective on difficult events

ABOUT BUSINESS WORKSHOPS

Many of the most pressing problems of the modern workplace have to do with shortfalls in emotional intelligence – rather than with deficiencies in technical or ‘hard’ skills. Bringing together the expertise of entrepreneurs, psychologists, thought leaders and CEOs – and drawing upon The School of Life’s unique expertise in cultivating emotional intelligence – our Professional Workshops will equip you with the tools and strategies needed to thrive in the modern workplace. They also provide the opportunity for informal networking with other business professionals.
