TAKING CONTROL...THE ESSENTIALS!

Are you worried about what will happen if you can’t fit any more in?

However hard you work, however much you take home, or what you give up, is life just getting tougher and tougher?

If so you are not alone!

Today 1 in 4 of us can expect to have a mental health illness bought about by stress and overload.

With 9.8 million working days lost and each person taking an estimated 22 days off the problem is escalating!

That means there are lots of people like you who struggle with:

  • Overeating
  • Not sleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Health and relationships suffering as a result
  • Exercise out of reach
  • Stressed
  • Comprised health

No time...too much to do...and becoming more and more worried.

However, it is widely acknowledged that without high levels of confidence and self-belief you and your team are unlikely to reach peak performance!

We know – because we work with people who appreciate they need to work smarter, create more balance and revitalise both mind and body – but are struggling to make those essential changes - we can help!

We work with managers and leaders holistically on a powerful one to one programme combining good mental and physical health to:

  • Define what you want from your life
  • Help you to increase life satisfaction, build reserves of energy, resilience and connection.
  • Inspire and challenge you to go beyond what you would do alone.
  • Facilitate self discovery and forward momentum

Outcomes:

  • Increased self awareness
  • New knowledge and skills
  • Attainment of personal and professional goals
  • Sustainable behaviour change
  • Increased life satisfaction

Children and DiSC

How exciting would it be if children could truly understand themselves better?

If they felt comfortable with their personal strengths and developed the ability to recognise those areas where a little extra work may be required?

And what if these unique skills could be developed at an age when the insights would be truly life changing - both at school and in the wider world?

The DiSC Children’s Programme delivers on all these Outcomes and More!

Programme includes:

  • Identifying individual strengths
  • Understanding characteristics both of self and others
  • Identifying areas for growth and where challenge may occur
  • Easy to use tools for relating better with family, classmates, adults and friends

This highly interactive programme is presented in a fun environment with practical exercises, and can also be delivered for parents, carers, facilitators and teachers to use with children aged 7 to 12.

The 22 page ‘Children’s Profile’ introduces DISC personalities in a highly engaging child friendly way, creating a greater understanding of their own behavioural style using a simple questionnaire.

The personal profile provides insights for relating to others who are different to them, and serves to deepen self-awareness, motivate and communicate more effectively.

This programme is offered with flexible modes of delivery.
