Course Profile:

Immersive Technologies Skillnet Hands Holding CirclesWe now well and truly live in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous world (VUCA). Because of this VUCA world we live in, we can’t afford to fall into old ways of being. We have all had to adjust during Covid-19, but our brain and body will do its best to make us fall back into old ways of doing things. This includes how we relate to colleagues and customers, how we manage our stress, and how we respond to family and friends.

Learning Outcomes:

In this VUCA world, the ability to continue to be successful in a healthy manner depends on the following items. When we work on all of these, we remain resilient and can adapt to whatever comes our way.

  • Understand how our emotions and values impact our decisions
  • Keep curiosity to the fore to deal with obstacles (ourselves and others)
  • Learn how to create a reflective practice for managing our mind, learning from mistakes and maintaining a growth mindset
  • Know how to ask for feedback to understand our own blind spots
  • Create a personal vision
  • Build evidence-based healthy daily habits and develop self-compassion

This four-part workshop series will provide participants with an exploration of evidence-based techniques to develop resilience. We will work through a process that moves participants from ‘thinking about’ to ‘taking action’ whether the adaptation required is one’s own choice or is externally imposed.

This is a series of workshops which build on each other. The trainer delivers information on useful concepts, tools and techniques while inviting learners to discuss and apply the tools to their personal and professional roles. The period of time in between each of the four workshops enables the learner to apply the takeaways from each workshop and revert the following week with progress, successes and any challenges.
