Presentation: Get Going!

MotivationThe rules of motivation – A Life Clubs Workshop hosted by Jane Steed

We are born motivated – we teach ourselves to walk and talk and we naturally learn and want to advance forward. But, as time goes on, fear, doubt and laziness creep in. It’s only when you have discovered what motivates you that you’ll be able to stay on track of your goals.

Although each of us intuitively knows our motivational toolkit, once you have found it consciously you’ll be able to access it whenever you want. Our Get Going workshop will teach you how to find your innate motivational tools and the self-talk that works for you, enabling you to achieve whatever it is you want.

Each of us has unique tools that keep us motivated. This workshop will enable you to learn how different we all are and what drives you on.

Outcomes:

  • Finding what has worked for you in the past
  • Learning the ‘self talk’ which suits you
  • Assemble your motivational toolkit to get you going and staying motivated

Presentation: Freeing Your Mind Of Negative Thoughts

Negative Thinking‘There is nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so’
William Shakespeare

Does your inner critic say you’re not good enough?

Does your head fill up with negative thoughts whenever you are trying something new or
challenging?

Do these thoughts pop into your head:

  • “That’s never going to work.”
  • “I’m going to fail.”
  • “I don’t deserve to be successful.”
  • “Everyone will laugh at me”

Perhaps you feel like an impostor, that you really aren’t any good at what you do and your
inner critic reinforces this with “You’re going to be found out!”

Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you had complete self-belief?

If any of this sound familiar, join Lou Laggan for her Freeing Your Mind of Negative
Thoughts

You’ll discover how to take care of negative thoughts without fighting them; in a way which
will allow you to develop more positive and supportive thinking. The type of thinking that
allows you to grow and thrive in whatever you do.

Presentation: Drawing Out The Child In You

Child drawingThis presentation is all about exploring your personality through simple drawing and writing exercises.

Using Star-Wave Drawing, a simple technique developed by an educational psychologist and family therapist you can draw out the child in you and explore what you learn through the lens of Transactional Analysis (a social psychology exploring relationship interactions).

By the end of the session you will know more about why daily or long term relationships work the way they do.

If you are interested in learning more about yourself and your relationships then all you will need to do is bring along your favourite pen.

No artistic ability is required.

Presentation: Building Boundaries By Saying No Nicely

BoundariesGood fences make good neighbours, good boundaries build good relationships

Mediators often describe themselves as breaking down walls and building bridges. So why do I think boundaries are important?

One of the most common causes of conflict is unclear boundaries or where someone has crossed a boundary.

Broken promises or unfulfilled expectations are examples of where a line has been crossed, knowingly or unknowingly. Many of these situations would not have occurred if people had “said no nicely early” in the relationship.

This practical session helps you explore your boundaries. Learn about how to set and communicate expectations clearly and how to handle yourself when boundaries are crossed or expectations are not met.

The Listening Space

Listening SpaceThis experiential session will introduce you to The Listening Space – a structured process in which one person facilitates another to explore an issue that is on their mind, using a combination of repeating back their words and a specific set of Clean questions. This could be anything from a problem they would like to gain clarity on to a creative idea they want to develop.

Clean questions can be used to focus on the metaphors that people use to express themselves. When this happens people experience being listened to at a very deep level and can be facilitated to make transformative and long-lasting changes.
