IT’S ALL IN YOUR MIND (Who You Are Is What You Are)
This is the generic presentation, suitable for all groups with an interest in how you become who you are, and how that affects what you believe, what you feel, and the results you get from life.
There a lively 60 minute presentation with slides and live video. Questions are encouraged at the end of each short session, plus up to 60 minutes is allowed at the end for audience Q&A. Your delegates will leave motivated, positive, and with a firmer understanding of what may be holding them back in achieving their goals.
The presentation can also be tailored for specific groups. My topics of personal interest are below, but the topic is flexible enough to tailor to most group environments:
In some ways, getting a diagnosis for a mental health problem can be a relief; it helps to understand why you may react to things in a certain way, and allows for support to be provided. On the other hand, these labels can be harmful; people can become defined in terms of their illness, in a way that would not happen for a physical illness. This talk deals with coping strategies and more helpful ways of looking at mental illness. It also explores the widespread occurrence of depression and anxiety (often coexisting with other mental health problems) in modern society, ways in which they affect our thinking, keeping us in an anxious or depressive cycle, and why there should be greater understanding for these conditions.
Recently, long-term unemployment has become the subject of media headlines, but the public outrage at certain notorious cases which have been highlighted is not helpful. This talk explores the way in which long-term unemployment is a social problem, and one that needs to be addressed by education and changes in thinking. It also looks at the ways in which long-term unemployment can actually be mentally and physically disabling. Having access to different ways of thinking can be key to making a change.
A prison sentence is not only about punishment or protection of other members of the public, it’s about rehabilitation. However, there are challenges to this; the reasons behind why the offender committed the offence, a lack of motivation of opportunity to change lifestyle, and difficult attitudes from the public, including employers, after release. This talk is based around how we become caught up in certain lifestyles and communities, how we can learn unhelpful responses and ways of thinking and behaving, and offer the opportunity to look in a more positive way at options available after the sentence has ended.
WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP
Even after decades of the influence of feminism, women are still under-represented in companies at a senior level. Women with management aspirations can still feel pressure to behave like male managers; the impression is frequently given that this is a “proper” management style. Sadly, this can prevent women putting themselves forward or being noticed; it can also lead to burnout and stress for women who have had to tailor their attitudes to workplace requirements. This talk deals with the very positive values that women can bring to leadership; how masculine and feminine traits within a person can improve leadership performance; and how masculine and feminine leadership within a company can improve both working environment and bottom line.
