Regain Your Self-Power with Confidence

This workshop is designed to help postgraduate students develop the skills and personal resources to respond to and put a stop to bullying and intimidating behaviour in the ‘workplace’ – i.e. classroom, hub, lab, etc. The workshop will look at the  beliefs and attitudes which limit people in dealing with bullying, and what might need to be changed in your values and communication styles to enhance your ability to put a stop to bullying whether it be directed at you or a colleague.

A lot of people when they are being bullied are afraid to stand up to the perpetrators out of of fear of retribution, loss of career, being expelled, or facing continual harassment for being a ‘whistleblower’. They engage in protective ‘shrinking’ behaviour, which undermines their confidence, and enables the bullying to continue unabated.

Are You Feeling Intimidated? Do you start shrinking when you feel like you are being treated unfairly?  Then this workshop will help you by providing skills to stop the shrinking behaviour and to regain self-confidence. It will help you to discover ways of being able to regain your self power  with confidence using the following tools:

Creating a Strong & Healthy Mindset
Building and Gaining Confidence
Building Self-Esteem
Staying Focussed and On track
Overcoming Anxiety and Stress
Living a Healthier Existence
Making Wiser Decisions
Understanding The Meaning of Your Communication
Importance of Verbal and Non verbal language
How To Respond to Intimidation, Verbal and Mental Torment, Bullying.
Understanding Behaviour and what it means
Being aware of the Impact Behaviours Have on Others

Be Ready For Your Next Challenge – Become Strong, Resilient, Happy &  Healthy!
