    Session Overviews

    Your Program will include the following Pop-Up sessions.

    STINKING THINKING

    In this session, we explore the concept of Stinking Thinking and the impact this has on our mental health and resilience. We explore the idea that it is not a trigger (situation, person or event) in itself that causes a stress response, but also how we interpret the trigger. Our emotional reactions depend on the stories we tell ourselves, that is to say our self-talk. Our self-talk can be positive, neutral or negative. Simply put, self-talk that causes stress is stinking thinking. At the close of this Pop-Up we introduce a series of Stinking Thinking #Hacks to decrease stress and increase resilience.

    BUILD MENTAL MUSCLES

    In this Pop-Up we explore the latest research in the field of neuroplasticity and how we can reshape our brain to be more mindful. Embedded throughout is understanding/ information about the nervous system and neurobiology of stress reactivity, and so how to read warning signs of unwanted behaviour. Also embedded throughout is a growing awareness of the Participants personal triggers and how this awareness enables them to become more resilient. At the close of this Pop-Up we introduce a series of Mindfulness #Hacks to de-stress and increase emotional resilience.

    #HappinessHacks

    Happy People create Happy and Productive Teams :) This Pop-Up explores what happiness at work and in life looks like, why it matters, and how to cultivate it. We examine how happiness improves the performance of individual employees and organisations as a whole, increasing innovation, productivity, engagement, retention, and the quality of work. We then explore the key factors that empirical research has linked to happiness, zeroing in on practices such as gratitude, developing a strong sense of purpose, and forming authentic, cooperative connections with others. The Pop-Up also highlights common barriers to happiness, both at the individual and cultural level. Finally, the Pop-Up explores a few tried-and-true #HappinessHacks to boost mood and build happier people.

    Mindset Reset

    In this Topic we learn how to more resilient by adopting a Growth Mindset. People with a fixed mindset believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. People with a “growth mindset,” in contrast, enjoy challenges, strive to learn, and consistently see potential to develop new skills. In this session, we teach Participants about malleable intelligence and how to encourage their team to embrace a growth mindset. At the close of this Pop-Up, we introduce a series of MindSet #Hacks to enable Participants to take on challenges and learn from them, thereby increasing their abilities, achievement and resilience.

    Focus

    Now, more than ever, is a challenging time to overcome overwhelm and maintain focus. This session begins by exploring the neural pathways of self-reference and their impact on focus and our ability to not become overwhelmed. We also explore the concept of attention deficit trait and how the brain is incapable of processing two complex stimuli at the same time. The result of attempting to focus on multiple things at one time can result in a sort of distracted attention that places us at risk in terms of well-being and decreases focus. At the close of this Pop-Up we introduce a series of Focus #Hacks to increase person productivity and efficiency.

    Bounce

    Bounce is defined as rebounding from and excelling in response to uncertainty, adversity and disappointment. Bounce provides individuals with the skills required to recover from, and flourish in response to previous or present unfavourable events and maintain or exceed the status quo. Bounce assists participants to personally increase and sustain productivity, satisfaction and energy, despite the odds. Participants will learn how operate at their best by consciously and systematically managing physical, mental, and emotional challenges and restoration. At the close of this Pop-Up we introduce a series of Bounce #Hacks to increase emotional resilience, wellbeing and performance.

    #StressBustingHacks

    This Pop-Up explores what triggers a stress response and effective techniques to help dissolve anxiety. We discuss the concept of stress alarm buttons and what occurs in the brain when a person becomes stressed. The topic then explores why the brain will either tag a stimulus as ‘good’ and engage in the stimulus (approach), or their brain will tag a stimulus as ‘bad’ and they will disengage from the stimulus (avoid). This is called the ‘Approach/Avoid’ response. In simple language, we liken the avoid response to a stress alarm going off in the mind. At the close of this Pop-Up, we introduce a series of #Hacks to decrease anxiety.
