Personal and Professional Wellbeing — pouring water back into the well

8th April 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm


What is it about?

You worked so hard on that project, production, tour, campaign but did you ever get a chance to reflect on how it went and how you feel about it? So life got busy and you moved on without checking in.

The most common complaint about working life these days is that there is no time to stop and think. No time to reflect on what is working well or what needs improving — and definitely no time to check up on how we’re feeling about ourselves. But this is a sure-fire way to burn out, lose motivation and ultimately not give our best to the work we love.

Developing the skills of reflective practice is an important tool for busy professionals. At this online workshop you’ll explore why reflection is so critical to learning. Take away practical strategies to create your own time to think about your work. Discover the active space in your body and mind, dig for your own individual truths. You’ll leave feeling able to carry on pouring your soul into your work, and water back into the well.

What will I gain?

— An understanding of the importance of personal reflection for your personal and professional development

— Practical strategies for making the time to think and reflect

— A feeling of being affirmed, sustained and confident in your own practice

Who is it for?

This workshop is for anyone in a leadership role. You may have manager in your job title, or head up a department  or small/medium organisation.

How do I take part?

We will be using an online training platform called WebEx for this event. Before booking, please complete our online training checklist to ensure you get the most out of this training.
