Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence has been shown to benefit our overall wellbeing, improving feelings of happiness. People who display higher levels of emotional intelligence have shown more ability to respond to change, manage stress and work more cohesively with others. Emotional intelligence can be increased with practice. This workshop will ask you to think about skills in a new way, reflect on how you learned those skills and what you have to do to keep learning. It also asks you to put information you already have to better use in understanding yourself and working more effectively with others.

Time Management

Time: It’s always running out; it never stops and we are powerless to influence it. But that doesn’t mean you can’t learn to manage your own time better. It won’t necessarily extend your time, but it will help you to achieve more while you are here. Developing techniques through an understanding of the cognitive processes underpinning our motivation and organisation, NewPsych can help you to “create time” for your personal goals, as well as identify when you’re at your most and least productive, and help you to better harness those moments of heightened alertness. By the end of this presentation, you will walk away working smarter, rather than harder to produce the MORE that you are capable of.

Letting Go of Guilt and Fostering Self-Compassion

In an increasingly demanding world, it can be easy to forget that we are people deserving of patience, compassion and understanding. This training involves simple, yet effective, methods to distract the brain and provide a moment of relief and kindness from the self-scrutiny we place ourselves under, all of which can be employed in everyday life, particularly while on the job.

Habits

Habits are generally defined as a behaviour that is recurrent and happens without a lot of awareness. This training will help you identify your own habits, because knowing yourself might help you make the changes you want.

Staying Calm

Typically, the phrase “stay calm” is paradoxical, for every minute you spend trying to “stay calm” you usually only end up stressing yourself out more. But the importance of staying calm and reducing your distress cannot be overstated. Stress isn’t just exhausting mentally, but it is accelerating our physical aging as well. Using techniques and methods developed in house, NewPsych will change the way you think about stress and show you realistic techniques you can use to help you stay calm.
