Following on from my June workshop at Society1 and presentation at University of Central Lancashire, I’m excited to announce that I’m running a complimentary Growth Sessions workshop on 31st July 2018 at East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce in Clayton-le-Moors.
The impact that culture and environment has on wellbeing and business performance.
The habits and behaviours which are affecting your overall performance and the impact they have on the way you work.
How to create small, simple changes to your existing routines to counteract bad habits and build better ones.
Booking for this popular session is essential via Eventbrite.
The aim of the Growth Sessions talks and workshops is to support the wellbeing of knowledge workers, creative thinkers, and people working in the digital sphere. Growth Sessions is a platform for raising awareness, sharing tools and exploring ideas which empower you to improve your habits, strengthen your wellbeing, and activate more of your potential, at work and in life.
Here is what people are saying about Growth Sessions:
“I recently attended a Growth session workshop and it was insightful and full of practical actions. Highly recommended.”
– Simon Price (Senior Lecturer – Employability & Innovation, UCLan)
“A fun and informative session with real life application. Thoroughly enjoyed by all.”
– Catarina King (Society1)
If you’re based up North, come and join me to find out for yourself how Growth Sessions can help you. :)
Whether we can, or can’t, do well at something new, it’s all in our heads. Having the right mental attitude helps us to excel, and activates more of our potential. In Episode 16, I share three types of “mindset” that can help us improve when we’re doing something new.
If you want to find out more about setting yourself up for growth, I highly recommend reading Carol Dweck’s book “Mindset”. We can be limited by the beliefs associated with a fixed mindset, but the world becomes our oyster when we set our minds for growth.

Despite her own hardships, Helen Keller wrote extensively about seeing positivity in the world. Her essay on Optimism, written in 1903, is well worth a read. Here’s a quote to get you started:
“No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven for the human spirit.” ~ Helen Keller
Martin Seligman is known as the father of Positive Psychology. He has written several books on optimism and happiness. I found his book ‘Learned Optimism’ particularly helpful as a learning tool during a turning point in my life.
Remember, there’s no such thing as half full or half empty … our cup is always FULL of hope and possibility.
It is far better for us (and more realistic) than striving for the elusive work/life balance.
In episode 11, I reconnect with my inner Madonna and use a choice word to share my opinion on the hype around the elusive goal of creating “balance”. Sensitive viewers cover your ears, or if you’re ready to take charge, then join me in creating a new movement!
If you want to find out more about cadence, I wrote a Medium post about it here.
