Resilience enables us to stay productive and experience a sense of well-being while working in contexts that are increasingly turbulent, complex and pressurised. We need to be able to adapt and thrive despite the changes and challenges in our workplaces. This workshop will help you to:

  • Stay productive despite increasing demands to do more with less
  • Adapt to and thrive in constant change and periods of uncertainty
  • Master the stress of everyday job pressures
  • Ensure physical and emotional wellbeing is not compromised – making performance sustainable over the longer term.

As a result of this session, you will be able to:

  • Understand and build the elements that create personal resilience while in the workplace
  • Recognise elements within the working environment that support personal resilience.
  • Explore an approach for responding to change and challenges that blends traditional techniques with an holistic framework for building resilience at work.

Enhancing Self Awareness and Impact (Part 1) 

Facilitators: Tracy Maxted, The Missing Think
Target group: All Staff 
Date: Thursday 3 October
Time: 9.00am - 12.30pm
Location: MB2-69, Whyalla Campus

We are often able to see the strengths and shortcomings in others, but not so capable of seeing ourselves as we truly are. On the one hand, we may be too hard on ourselves or equally, blind to the habits and behaviours that are impacting our results every day.

By mindfully developing our self-awareness, we can proactively find strategies to manage our own behaviours as well as grow our influence and impact with others.

This session will assist you to:
• understand how you can use 'Emotional Intelligence' to increase personal success
• recognise 'Imposter Syndrome' and create a new mindset that works for you
• learn strategies to develop your self-awareness and impact every day.

It will enhance your ability to:

• be proactive in creating powerful, collaborative relationships
