Personal Development meeting in Durham

Posted on

Monthly Personal Development Cafe starting March 2014

 

The Personal Development Cafe is both for those people new to personal development and for those already exploring coaching and neuro linguistic programing (nlp). The café sessions are designed to be informative, stimulating and compliment other Personal Development Circle North East’ workshops.

“If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” Gandhi

As a member of the Personal Development Cafe part you will:

– Discover the benefits of using personal development techniques
– Learn tools for confidence, motivation & the power of your mind
– Gain an understanding of the science and behind personal development
– Feel motivated and supported by the group
– Progress to become the person you want to become

Café sessions are monthly and run for 2 hours. In a relaxed and informal setting the sessions will start with a coffee followed by “some food for thought” – an informative and stimulating talk. Then it’s time for “café chatter” to open up discussion. We finish with some “clearing up” and self-reflection which is for your eyes only.

You are welcome to “drop in” on individual café sessions, but you may find benefit from regular attendance.

No matter what your goals and dreams may be or at what level you are to achieving them. With consistent motivation, a deeper understanding of the power of your mind, good clear teaching, and a friendly group of people behind you, you will gain a deeper understanding and belief in yourself from which change will naturally develop.

You can choose from our Café menu over the following dates

March  8th    Start thinking right

Start right thinking

There’s a battle going on in our minds, a daily conversation with ourselves which if it’s going well, can make our day and if it not well “I might as well not even bother !!!!” (does this sound familiar?)

The true fact is that our bodies and behaviours are affected by the way we think. We think in patterns that develop habits, our brain remembers these habits and like a well-worn path, they are stored in the neurology of the brain.

More often than not we talk down to ourselves, talk ourselves out of things and limit our opportunities before that have even entered the room.  When was the last time you told yourself how amazing you are?

The good news is that our brain can learn a new path, and the more often we choose a better path the more worn it becomes until it becomes a new path of better thinking.

So in this session we are going to explore a little bit about how the brain works, the physical effects of both positive and negative self-talk and write ourselves some affirmations to take home, so we can start the day on the right path.

 

 

April  26th    Your personality types

NLP and Personal Development Cafe in Gateshead tonight

Posted on

 

NLP & Personal Development CAFE – Gateshead

 

THE “NEUROLOGICAL LEVELS” FOR LIFE GOALS!

 

Come along and learn NLP in its purest form!

 

Having the theory of a desired outcome of goal is no use if you do not have the right emotional state or required behaviour to achieve it!

 

On this workshop you will learn how to work towards your goals and outcomes by changing your behaviour, your sensory perspective, values and skills.

 

We will focus on Robert Dilts‘ Neurological Levels, where it stands in NLP, and how best to use it to work towards goals and outcomes – adynamic interactive workshop with underlying theory and practical activities to take home!

 

Over the next few sessions we will be exploring various techniques to help you create positive mind states and behaviours to help you achieve what you want from life.

Some of the many techniques we will use include how to:

 

 

 

 

Creating “Well-Formed” Outcomes that develop behaviourial shifts

 

Reframe negative thought patterns into positive behaviours

 

Overcome limiting beliefs

 

Deal with Inner Conflict

 

Creating Compelling & Alternative Futures

 

Move quickly from present state to a desired state

 

Operate from a solutions focused mindset

 

Create a state of “As If” you already had all the resources you need.

 

 

 

 

 

You don’t need to know anything about at all about NLP or personal development, but you will gain a lot from this session even if you are already familiar with this approach – a friendly and fun session open to experienced NLP people and beginners alike!

 

Your training is delivered by Jay Arnott, certified NLP trainer by co-founder John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St-Clair and Michael Carroll.

 

Again, the meeting is open to ANYONE looking for new tools to help them achieve their personal goals or is simply interested in finding new ways to help make positive change.

Tea and Coffee provided.

 

Each month we cover a different coaching topic covering personal development with practical tools to facilitate positive change in ourselves. In the past we’ve explored techniques to improve self-esteem, dealing with fears & phobias, stress/anxiety, coaching, goal-setting, and many more.

 

PLEASE NOTE

 

£10 meeting fee (High-End coaching at pocket money prices!)

Personal Development Workshops 2014

Posted on Updated on

I have spent some time recently working on the 2014 calendar for the PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT CIRCLE NORTH EAST and am pleased to say it is pretty much finalised.

We have 3 presenters presenting monthly workshops:

  • Coaching Cafe – Aly, Newcastle Performance Coaching, weekly 1pm-3pm January – February then monthly
  • Personal Development Cafe – Caroline Malloy – monthly on a Saturday 2pm – 4pm
  • NLP Cafe in Gateshead – Jay Arnott – monthly on a Saturday 10am – 12 noon
  • Law of Attraction Cafe – Caroline Cogdon – monthly on a Saturday 10am – 12 noon
  • Teachings of Abraham – Aly, Newcastle Performance Coaching, monthly (evening)
  • Spirituality Cafe – Aly, Newcastle Performance Coaching, monthly (evening)

I’m running a 7 week group coaching course starting in January and February, as well as a few one-off workshops (confidence, self-esteem, stress management etc) and will deliver the above if for any reason the usual presenter is unavailable.

For the exact dates and locations of meetings please check our website.   http://www.meetup.com/Personal-Development-Circle-North-East

I do have some places left for ‘guest workshops’.  If you are interested in presenting a workshop for the PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT CIRCLE NORTH EAST please get in touch and with details of your website, the workshop and some information about yourself.  Please note any guest presentations should not conflict with any of the other presenters above.  Priority to presenting to the group is always given to PAID PDCNE members.

We have the Christmas stress-buster night on Saturday 7 December 2013 if you are interested in presenting to the Personal Development Circle North East then come along and deliver a 15 minute presentation.  Coming along to this event is an ideal opportunity for you to meet me, the other members of the group and discuss future workshops.

Once I have finalised the PDCNE calendar for 2014 in mid December I will not be adding any new presentations/workshops until the summer except for our regular presenters and a couple of people I’m in the process of securing dates with.

In addition to the Personal Development Circle North East I also run 2 other meetup groups – PARENTS NORTH EAST and PROFESSIONAL PEOPLE NORTH EAST.  The opportunity to present in workshops applies to ALL 3 groups I run.

Not everyone in the group is interested in presenting which is great, all members contribute to the group whether it’s at a social, by attending, supporting or help promoting events or getting involved in presenting.

In order to be successful the groups rely upon members being active so join us, take time to look around the websites and book into anything that appeals (someone has to be the first to RSVP!!) you can always change your mind nearer the time.

Bullying in the workplace on the rise

Posted on Updated on

I was concerned to read this article in the Guardian about workplace bullying.  Bullying has no place in todays society and to find it is on the increase must be a concern for many.  Typically the person who does the bullying is showing his or her power of size, mental quickness or position. 

Sadly bullies seek out the weak and vulnerable to focus on and target unwanted behaviour towards, they then can start a campaign of bullying against a collegue or worker which lasts months or even years.  But what of the victim?  Often workplace bullying can destroy their confidence and self esteem, afraid to speak out and unsure where to turn the feelings of isolation and desperation can lead to stress and depression.   

What is often worse that whistle-blowing whilst encouraged by many employers in writing is actually not practiced in many workplaces and those members who are brave enough to step forward to protect their co workers can often find themselves too at the receiving end of workplace future bullying and some fear of speaking up incase their own hopes of career progression are shattered. 

Dealing with the situation head on by employers will send out the right message, there is no place for bullying within the workforce, complaints will be taken seriously and bullies dealt with effectively.  The employers should then be taking steps to help the victims of workplace bullying to build up their confidence and self esteem, any staff absences due to the bullying should be set aside and regular training on workplace acceptable practices should be the norm. 

If you, or someone you know, has been bullied at work then coaching may help.  Personal coaching can help to deal with increasing the employee’s confidence and self esteem, team coaching can aid building relations between co-workers who no doubt have also been effected by what has happened and the bully if allowed to remain in post will benefit from coaching to understand the consequences of their actions and how to ensure their future conduct is acceptable within the workplace practices.  Contact me if you would like to discuss how coaching could help you.

I have posted the relevant article below with a link back to the original.

Bullying in the workplace on the rise | Money | The Guardian

Bullying in the workplace on the rise

• Cases have doubled in last six months, survey shows
• Lawyers say economic downturn is to blame

Incidences of workplace bullying have doubled over the past decade.

The recession has seen a big increase in bullying at work, the Guardian has learned. One in 10 employees experience workplace bullying and harassment, according to the conciliation service Acas, while a survey by the union Unison reports that more than one-third of workers said they were bullied in the past six months, double the number a decade ago.

“The fact that bullying has doubled in the past decade is shocking,” said Dave Prentis, the general secretary of Unison.

Fraser Younson, head of employment at the law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner, said: “In the last year or so, as running businesses has become more difficult, the way managers interface with their staff has become more demanding. Managers are chasing things up, being more critical. If they are not trained to deal with increased levels of stress, then we are seeing them do this in a way that makes staff feel bullied.”

Samantha Mangwana, an employment solicitor at Russell Jones & Walker, said: “We are getting a very high level of cases. Most of the people who come to us with a problem at work talk about bullying. It frequently arises in people’s line-manager relationship.”

Employment lawyers say allegations of bullying have become a frequent feature of claims for unfair dismissal and discrimination.

Support groups are struggling to cope with the rise in cases, with one helpline recently forced to close.

“We have been overwhelmed by a huge rise in complaints over the last two years,” said Lyn Witheridge, who ran the Andrea Adams Trust bullying helpline until last year. “We had to close the charity and the helpline because we couldn’t cope with the number of calls – they more than doubled to 70 a day.

“The recession has become a playground for many bullies who know they can get away with it. Under pressure, budgets have got to be met. Managers are bullying people as a way of forcing them out and getting costs down.”

News of the increase comes amid a number of high-profile employment tribunal cases, including a News of the World sports reporter, Matt Driscoll, who was awarded almost £800,000 by an east London tribunal after he suffered “a consistent pattern of bullying behaviour” from staff, including Andy Coulson, now David Cameron’s head of communications.

Last month two yeomen were sacked from the Tower of London after an inquiry revealed a campaign of bullying against Moira Cameron, the first female yeoman warder in the tower’s 1,000-year history.

“We see some cases of bullying in discrimination where the employer invokes what we colloquially call the ‘bastard defence’,” said Mangwana. “Their defence is that they were a bastard to everyone, so it’s not discriminatory.”

Academics have long warned of the link between economic conditions and bullying, with studies in the 1980s and 1990s predicting that workplace competition and the threat of redundancy were most likely to cause an increase. The decline of trade unions and of collective action has also been cited as a factor.

Experts also believe that press coverage of bullying cases has raised awareness, encouraging more employees to take advantage of what has been described as an “explosion” of individual employment rights over recent years.

Although “bullying” is not a legal term, cases of bullying at work have arisen through employment law, health and safety and protection from harassment legislation. But news of the rise in bullying cases across different jurisdictions, which research suggests contributes to the 13.7m working days lost every year as a result of stress and depression, has prompted criticism that the government has failed to adequately address the problem.

“The increase in tribunal claims this year is part of a lurch towards the American culture of litigation, but that is not necessarily the answer,” said Witheridge. “More should be done to resolve bullying disputes without litigation, and for people to be treated with the dignity they deserve at work, while also being strongly managed.”

The government said it was working to tackle the problem. Lord Young, the employment relations minister, said: “Workplace harassment and violence is unacceptable and the government is committed to addressing these problems.”
