Leadership skills: dealing with pressure and stress

                                                            March 8 2017 13:00 – 16:00This practical, hands on workshop is set up as a ‘laboratory’ in which you as participant analyze, research and explore what brings you stress and pressure, how it shows up, and what you can do to reduce it and deal with it. You will learn from others, share knowledge and experience. Active participation. Practical exploration in embodied exercises.
Follow up: FFNT in addition offers participants an opportunity for getting an online follow up coaching session.

After the workshop you will have increased insight in what causes you stress and a feeling of pressure, what your favorite ways are to react on it, and you have learned, tried out and chosen for yourself a couple of tools for dealing with your stress and pressure which can directly be applied in practice.

Exercises are based on neuroscientific research, practical wisdom from martial arts and holistic health (Aikido, mindfulness, Qi Gong), tacit embodied knowledge from the theatre (the trainer’s original profession), theory and practice from the field of leadership training (ao Steven Covey), and new science on integral leadership and dealing with increasing complexity (Spiral Dynamics Integral, Integral Theory/Wilber) including the necessarily connected self-development, growth of consciousness and change of mindset, and embodiment (ao Peter Merry, Dylan Newcomb, and the program that Arielle Brouwer developed on SelfChange).

Review coaching session:

“Arielle really helped me with her advice on how to get my focus back on my long term goals and ambitions, instead of the short term struggles, which I discovered were (and are) heavily influencing my self-confidence. I have implemented several of her tips and tricks in my routine over the last few weeks, and actually already feel a positive difference. For sure I would recommend a coaching session with Arielle to anyone with similar self-confidence issues (e.g. perfectionism, disappointment about progress)”. – PDEng (post-master trainee Professional Doctorate in Engineering)
