WorkLifeWebinars

Thought-provoking. Impactful. Practical.

Introducing our new series of free introductory webinars, covering wellbeing, productivity and effectiveness at work. We want to share practical insights, provoke reflection and spark a desire to learn more.

Our new webinar series

We’re delighted to announce a new ongoing webinar series. These online sessions will explore a range of relevant workplace topics and challenges: introducing coaching, beating procrastination, the relevance of personal values and more.

Each will last just 45mins and will be completely free. While our first six topics have been identified, we’d love to hear suggestions from clients and contacts as to future areas of focus.

We want to provoke thought and reflection on some critical areas of the contemporary workplace and offer some guidance and solutions. Attendees will be able to ask questions and will get directed to key online resources, to continue their learning.

Access is simple – just sign up to receive a link to the relevant webinar and add it to your calendar. Feel free to spread the word and invite colleagues who you think may share your interest.

The 2020 Webinar Programme

Webinars will be scheduled every two weeks, taking place on a Wednesday. Each session will be recorded and made available for later viewing once edited.

While free, we do require attendees to register in advance. A registration link can be found for each webinar in the list below.

You can sign up for one or all of the sessions, but places are limited, so we ask that you only register if you really intend to attend. You’ll sign up via our Eventbrite page and then receive log-in instructions via email in the days prior to the webinar.

12th Aug: Less frantic, more focused

The COVID-19 crisis has shown us all that simply focusing on doing more isn’t fulfilling or sustainable.

In this session, we focus on key principles underlying getting more of the right stuff done. Watch the recording here.

9th Sept: The Value of Values

The COVID-19 Crisis has brought our priorities into sharp relief and illustrated for many of us what’s truly important in life.

This session will outline what we mean by ‘values’ and how we can each live a more values-aligned life. Watch the recording here.

8th Oct: Sustainable Online Collaboration

With so many employees working remotely, it’s more important than ever that serious thought is given to how colleagues collaborate online.

We’ll be joined by Pilar Orti, the Director of ‘Virtual not Distant‘ and an expert in online collaboration. Watch the recording here.

21st Oct: Getting to grips with Impostor Syndrome

In this session, we’ll outline some ways to better understand impostor syndrome and explain some approaches to lessen its impact. Watch the recording here.

2nd Dec: Resilience at Work

This year has sent numerous challenges our way and there’s been a lot of talk of resilience as a result.

16th Dec: Psychological Safety

When it comes to teams at work, a lot of emphasis has been placed on factors like skills, relationships and trust. All are important, but psychological safety represents an additional concept that team leaders and managers should be aware of. It’s associated with the sharing of ideas, identification and discussion of risks and open review of errors. This session will clarify the concept, outline its benefits and introduce some simple ways for managers to build psychological safety in their teams. Book your place now!
