vrijdag, februari 17th, 2017

Incompany workshop for University of Twente.

for Female Faculty Network members, and academic staff members


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)

Global Workers Experience trainer Arielle Brouwer will offer the workshop “Finding your voice -how to be true to yourself, speak up, and be heard” and Speed coaching sessions “Silent feedback”

In the workshop Finding your voice, you will work on your professional performance through voice work, body language and embodiment techniques. By means of practical, lively and creative exercises you will learn to present yourself in a convincing and authentic way. You will experience how it is to make an impact using your voice and body, and what to do to handle your nerves. You will come to see what sort of impression you make on others, explore what impression you would like to make, and do practical exercises designed to align the two. This will allow you to work on your personal leadership skills so that you can speak up and be heard while staying true to yourself.

Speed coaching Silent feedback: In a three-minute session in which both participant and coach remain silent, the coach will give you feedback on your presence using eye-contact, posture, movement, and other nonverbal signals. The coach can serve as a witness, a mirror, an interlocutor, or another role -whatever is most appropriate at the moment and in the interaction as it arises. We ask you to embark on this session with an open mind and without any preconceptions (although you may have a question that you would like to ask yourself).

Ariëlle Brouwer coaches and develops workshops and training courses for professionals (including academics) focusing on careers, leadership and communication. She draws on her background in the theatre, martial arts training, and her extensive experience as a trainer and coach.
