Furthermore, it is associated with a range of adverse outcomes such as poor mental health and reduced quality of life. Bullying can be verbal, physical, social or psychological abuse by employers or colleagues and can happen ton anyone, in any social situation. Often involving ongoing or repeated misuse of power in relationships with the intention to cause deliberate psychological harm,  knowing what the signs are, and what to do about it, is crucial for personal and organisational success.

Optimal stress

Stress is typically associated with feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope with mental or emotional pressure, but in reality there is good and bad stress.

Learning how to manage stress levels effectively will enable you to supercharge your life. 

In this session we will:

Fundamentals of emotional intelligence

Helping you to identify and leverage emotions to your advantage.

Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and regulate emotions in yourself and others. Strong emotional intelligence skills helps you to build relationships, reduce stress, defuse conflict and improve job satisfaction. According to Harvard Business Review emotional intelligence accounts for nearly 90 percent of what sets high performers apart from peers with similar technical skills and knowledge and is an acknowledged skill for winning at life.

Behavioural Economics 101: Unconscious bias and good decision making

Use and recognise psychological influences to improve decision making.

Behavioral economics draws on psychology and economics to explore why people sometimes make irrational decisions, and why and how their behavior does not follow the predictions of traditional economic models. One application of behavioral economics is heuristics, which is the use of rules of thumb or mental shortcuts to make quick decisions. However, heuristics can lead to cognitive unconscious bias. Having an understanding of behavioral economics helps us to predict and influence what people are going to do given a context.

Fundamentals of social intelligence

Adjusting your behaviour to align with the requirements of the audience.

Social intelligence is the capacity to be aware of and understand your thoughts and feelings, as well as the feelings and behaviours of those around you. When you are socially intelligent, you are aware of motivational and emotional drivers, and are able to fit confidently into different social situations, as you are able to communicate in the right way.  Social intelligence is often labelled as “people skills” and can be an invaluable skill to master.
