WORKSHOPS

 Motivational and Mental Health Workshops and Training

 

We offer inspiring mental health workshops to help people to rise above the stresses of modern-day work. We show them how to use “Scarlet Thinking” to become more productive, more visible and happier in their work. All workshops have been created for online and in-person presentations. They also address the issues many of us are facing around working remotely, in a time of uncertainty.

 

Our workshops are listed below, but please contact us for a bespoke offering.

 

Self-discipline, habits and rituals

 

Goal addressed: Becoming more productive whilst working remotely.

 

content servicesWe all rely on self-discipline, habits and rituals to get things done, but how often do you think about which one serves you best? This workshop concentrates on looking at the differences between the three. It helps people think about their own rituals, self-discipline and habits. What works for them and what doesn’t?

 

We’ll look at real life examples from a positive psychology perspective, promoting good mental health and resilience.

 

Learn:

 

  • How to increase your self-discipline
  • Why relying on self-discipline alone can be a trap
  • The two main mindsets in life and what you can do if you find yourself stuck in the wrong one
  • How you can break your own habits – or create new ones
  • Why we need rituals in our lives
  • How to raise habits into rituals to change our state of mind

Become More Visible

 

Goal addressed: maintaining visibility within an industry and organisation whilst working remotely.

 

Radiance and visibilityWith much of our working life now in lockdown, or working remotely, being visible is more important than ever. Sometimes, simply doing a job well isn’t enough. We have to be seen to be doing it to be an ambassador for your organisation, to have “a profile”. Some people love this opportunity to step into the spotlight. For others, it can feel like a step too far.

 

Many are also struggling with making themselves heard and seen over Zoom. The whole issue of speaking up in a meeting has become even more acute, now we are online.

 

Being more visible can open up opportunities. It allows you to be taken more seriously, and create connections that will benefit you in your life and career. Organisations benefit by creating ambassadors who represent the company.

 

This workshop will help participants:

 

  • Conduct a reputation audit
  • Become more comfortable sharing and speaking up on Zoom
  • Understand what they can do to raise their profile without coming over as a show–off
  • Investigate their blocks to stepping into the spotlight
  • Find ways to raise their reputation that feel comfortable and authentic
  • Discover their own Visibility archetype and what that means for you
  • Create a reputation plan

Make Decision-Making Easier

 

Goal addressed: productivity, team working; leadership.

 

Decision-making is something that can put the strongest of us into a dither.

 

In today’s fast paced world, we have so many small decisions to make.  Do I want a cappuccino or flat white? Should I email or phone that difficult client? It’s no wonder we have little energy or thinking space left for the big, important decisions.

 

It’s also easy to fall into the trap of always approaching our decision making in the same way when there could be far better ways to tackle it.

 

 

Business Psychologist Paula Gardner has created this workshop to:

 

  • Help you uncover your own decision-making style
  • Show you some powerful decision-making techniques that you can apply to career, business and personal life
  • Get out of the “washing machine” of should I, shouldn’t I?” thinking
  • Get you thinking about making decisions in different ways
  • Understand others’ decision-making styles for better relationships and team dynamics
  • Learn about Risk Typing and how that defines how you unconsciously makes decisions
  • Take the opportunity to practise your learning on any real-life decisions with which you may be struggling.

How to Use Your Communication Archetype to Build a Network and Grow Strong Relationships

 

 

communication archetypeDid you know that we all have our favourite, comfortable communication styles, or communication archetypes? However, just because they are familiar, it doesn’t mean that they are the best ones to reach our clients, form connections or build an audience. This workshop will help you discover your communication archetype and learn how to use it for best effect.

 

This 2 hour session with business psychologist Paula Gardner looks at the nine communicator archetypes. It will help participants identify their natural styles of connecting with people. It is therefore ideal for anyone who uses a network to reach out to potential clients, create a social buzz or convey a brand message.  Whether you network online or out there in the real world, this workshop will make connecting easier and more enjoyable.

 

We will:

 

  • Question if your comfort zone communicator archetype is the most effective for your purposes.
  • Assess which archetypes may be the most applicable for your goals
  • Look at practical ways people can put the strength of their archetypes to good use
  • Identify household names and the archetypes they use
  • Assess which archetype suit both your personal and business brand.

 

This 90 minute workshop (plus 30 minutes for Q and A), is an ideal introduction to the Scarlet Thinking leadership framework. It also includes a follow up 20 minute laser session for every participant.
