Coaching and Mentoring
The mentor/mentee dynamic is a commonly experienced relationship within the global workforce. But how do you effectively mentor someone? How can you open yourself up to being mentored? When this relationship is maladaptive you will likely experience higher employee turnover, and poorer work performance due to inadequate training. You may also see reduced job satisfaction within the senior employees tasked with mentoring/coaching if they are ill-equipped for training others. Using the GROW framework of mentoring and coaching we will help your leaders to improve their communication skills and self-confidence to ensure their mentees are open, receptive and engaged to their teachings.
Dealing with Difficult People and Situations
Learn how to communicate effectively to diffuse difficult people and situations, coming out unscathed. Learn how to avoid taking on board other people’s stuff while staying positive and happy.
Giving and Receiving Feedback
Feedback should be used for the purpose of helping someone to improve. However, it is not easy being criticised, no matter how constructive it is. There is also a skill to giving feedback and appraisals. In this session, we will explore how to keep your feedback constructive and respectful, and how to receive feedback openly, without rising to defence.
Communicating to Get What You Want.
Clearly communicate your needs and goals without treading on any toes. Ensure your message is received the way it was intended. Learn your own personal communication style. Make sure you are clear by understanding assertive versus passive versus aggressive styles. Learn to be assertive and influential.
When professionals are working with survivors of traumatic experiences, there is a risk that their exposure to these experiences can trigger a trauma response in the worker. Vicarious trauma refers to the development of beliefs and attitudes in response to hearing about the traumatic experience of another. As the care goes on, the impact of the original traumatic event on the worker can accumulate and drive them towards burnout. Therefore, learning how to manage one’s own self-care is vital when working with survivors of traumatic events. Let the team at NewPsych provide insight and strategies to keep the balance, so that you may continue helping others.
Dealing with Uncertainty
COVID-19 and the past few years taught us many, many things, however, one of the most important things was how adaptable humans are. Despite our proven ability for adaptation, change is still never easy. Biologically we are hardwired against change since our primitive brains still view change as a threat. Therefore, we must learn how to ignore the perceived threat of change and embrace it – lean into the wave and come through these difficult periods stronger and more adaptable to future change.

It also asks you to put information you already have to better use in understanding yourself and working more effectively with others.
