Never has there been such an interest in personal psychology, mental wellness and emotional intelligence in the business world. This is because COVID-19, political tensions and their impact have disrupted our habits, plans and aspirations for the future. It’s changed the way we work, requiring us to abandon plans and adapt to the unexpected. People are stressed.

How can we adapt and help our teams to do so in the face of uncertainty and disruption? How do we not burn out from what we thought was a sprint, is now a marathon?

This requires inner agility; the ability to explore and navigate through ambiguity, to understand our inner and outer worlds, and what gives us or depletes our energy and motivation. With inner agility, we have greater clarity in our thinking and greater creativity to tackle challenges in face of adversity.

This course will provide leaders a practical guide for building Inner Agility. 

  • Learn what an “explorer” mindset is. It’s an extension of the growth mindset – explorers love adventure, no matter how hard the journey gets and in the face of derailing events
  • Understand how our brain and body respond to an uncertain and unpredictable world; it is normal to have stressful emotions, and these emotions can get us “stuck”
  • Explorers don’t let stressful emotions sabotage them from making wise, thoughtful decisions, even in emergencies. You’ll be equipped with practical and powerful tools to buffer yourselves and those you lead from stress to move forward
  • Discover your personal mission, an anchor that will enable you to be resilient in the face of the fiercest storms
  • Create your own story of overcoming to inspire hope in others
