I’m delighted to announce a new departure for WorkLifePsych, in cooperation with our friends at WiseAmigo.
Starting next month, we’re launching a new meetup group in London, focused on personal development at work. Paul Smith and I will be co-facilitating a series of workshops where we’ll review the common topics that professionals want to work on.
Our plan is to have time for discussion and networking, as well as a workshop element to explore a psychological concept or skill.
We’re starting with a session on effective goal-setting – it’s the time of year when everyone is setting New Year’s Resolutions, after all! But we’ll be looking at it from a psychological perspective, emphasising the important factors to remain aware of when setting goals, such as: meaning and purpose, discomfort of behaviour change, planning for difficulties and setbacks and the relevance of new habits.
Why should you attend? Maybe you’ve tried to work on your own development in the past and didn’t make the progress you’d hope. Perhaps you’re not sure where to start. It might be that you work in an organisation that doesn’t provide structured or readily available development support.
If you’re interested in working on your own development in a supportive and evidence-based environment, this is the group for you!
The Meetup is completely free to join and you can sign up here. Our first session is scheduled for 23rd January and we’ll meet monthly in Central London after that.
