Sydney Speaker: Peter Cullen, Director, Mindforce Australia
High performance is the first casualty of stress. People typically do not know when they are consumed by stress and rarely recognise the symptoms. With little or no resilience, we will find it difficult to bounce back to our normal mental, physical and emotional state.
Resilience is our ability to bend and not break.
To recognise our current state and be able to bounce back. Resilient people tend to be more confident, courageous and happier with a greater ability to achieve or exceed agreed performance levels.
Building resilience takes time and commitment from all levels within a business. Peter will share his personal insights on the effects of stress, resilience and what you can do personally to understand and strengthen your own ability to bounce back and be the person you need to be to perform at the level that is right for you.
Melbourne Speaker: Clare Coffield, Business Owner – Clarity in your life
Resilience demonstrated: 2 divorces, end of career job, depression, management mistakes, a brave move to Australia 5 years ago in my 60’s. Then a brain bleed stroke 18 months ago with complete right side paralysis, could so easily have been the last straw.
Ongoing recovery from stroke: learning to walk again. Self awareness: look at the problem realistically and take aligned actions. Stepping up and taking responsibility for our own well being.
Examples of simple and easy to follow strategies:
Powerful influence of self talk and how we allow others to describe us
Visualisation before taking action
Humour and not taking ourselves too seriously
Gathering our support tribe
Making healthy choices
Feisty determination, love from close family with medical and therapeutic influences.
It’s never too late to start again with better choices. Above all – our health must come first.
