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.

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.

Christmas Stress Buster Evening

Posted on

Christmas Stress-Buster Evening

7 December 2013 t 7pm

This is an interactive session and social looking at ways to de-stress over Christmas and make the most of the festive period.

Christmas can a stressful and sometimes difficult to many people for a range of reasons, perhaps it’s because they can’t be with people they like to be with due to loss/location/separation, maybe they can’t do what they want to do for similar reasons, finances, work commitments and family circumstances can dictate where and how we spend it.

This evening session is looking at how we can take control of Christmas, what it means to us and our perception of it through using personal development tools including NLP & Coaching.

It helps me manage numbers if you pre-pay on PayPal and RSVP for this event on our website.
http://www.meetup.com/Personal-Development-Circle-North-East/events/153448072

I’ll be there early for a bar meal.

Refreshments are not provided though food & bar drinks are available for purchase from the venue.

Workplace bullying

Posted on Updated on


Image via Wikipedia

Source:  Bullying in the workplace | BlogHer

I found the above article by Laura Petrecc which I though may interest readers of my blog.  She talks about bullying, how often the first thought when bullying is mentioned is that of phyical form of bullying, next comes bullying within schools. Often overlooked is the fact that bullying also happens in the workplace.

She talks about how bullying is assumed to target others on the grounds of;

  • race,
  • ethnicity,
  • sexual-orientation,
  • or anything that is physically manifested such as disability or difference in appearance or behavior.

Work bullying does not restrict itself to that of colleagues but also comes from those who benefit from managerial positions.  Click on the link above to read her full article.

…..

Many organisations including the public sector carry out staff surveys and sadly there is often a notable percentage of staff who have experienced or witnessed workplace bullying, additionally we often also see an percentage of staff surveyed who decline to comment on this.  What is the reason why someone would decline to comment on a confidential staff survey?  Is it because despite assurances from senior management that the workforce simply do not believe that ‘confidentiality’ is exactly that?

Another source who wished not to be named claimed that he, being a fresh graduate from the same company’s training of six months, had to request a sick leave due to stress after the manager demanded that he ought to make even more sales. He had made more than half-a-dozen sales in three weeks, a significant number for a ‘newbie.’

Do managers foster insecurity within the workforce?  Do employees live in fear that if they speak up because they or their colleagues are being bullied that, especially in the current financial climate, they would be putting their employment at risk of termination or that they themselves would also become a victim because they are speaking out in support of others?

Many organisations have HR departments who are there to protect managers but who does the employee have to turn too?  Many are told they can also turn to HR for assistance but how is the information utilised?  Where there is a conflict how does the HR person deal with it if both sides of a situation are turning to them for advice or support?

What is the percentage of staff who are experiencing stress and difficulties in the workplace which can be put down to the culture of the management and the way they run the organisation with focus purely on hitting targets and not valuing the workforce they have already or not investing in them?

Have we forgotton how to concentrate?

Posted on Updated on

This article is one which I found really interesting and thought I would share with readers of my blog.

Source: Have we forgotten how to concentrate? – Times Online

I must be quite a sight at work. A large paper fish is wedged into my monitor to conceal new email alerts. I wear a Madonna-taking-an-aerobics-class headset, not for hands-free calls, but to block out noise (invariably, there’s someone close by, shouting my name because I can’t hear them). And I read out loud to stop myself just going through the motions. You see, I’m trying to concentrate. And there’s a lot stacked up against it.

In a new book, The Art of Concentration, the health writer Harriet Griffey argues that we are experiencing an attention crisis. Office workers are interrupted every three minutes, so at best we have a three-minute attention span, and 62% of us are addicted to email. Meanwhile, a recent study at the University of California calculated that we are bombarded with 34 gigabytes of information a day, including roughly 100,000 words (a figure that has more than doubled in the past 30 years). What’s more, the trend-spotting agency The Future Laboratory talks of “filter failure”, “information anxiety” (fretting about awaited emails) and “stuffocation” (the state of being overwhelmed by years of consumption). No wonder we self-diagnose attention-deficit disorder.

“In Britain, we work the longest hours and get the least done,” says The Future Laboratory’s Chris Sanderson. “It’s a big problem.” An “attention economy” has emerged, where the scarce commodity is human attention.

“The ability to concentrate is the X factor,” says Griffey, whose book, promisingly subtitled Enhance Focus, Reduce Stress and Achieve More, unpacks all the latest science (plus Buddhist thinking) on focus. She points out that we are experts at “sabotaging, daydreaming and distraction”. Thirty per cent of the time, we don’t think about what we’re doing. Even the brainiac Alain de Botton struggles. “The constant thrill the internet can deliver is hard to challenge,” he admits. “I don’t manage much work while ostensibly at work.”

* Call to bring ‘smart drugs’ out of the closet

We are our own worst enemies, says Griffey. We develop avoidance strategies, instinctively seeking the path of least resistance to binge on virtual comfort food. Yet it takes, on average, 15 minutes to refocus after an interruption. Email is addictive because it brings reward: an invitation, a joke, some attention — simple lab-rat science. If I ate food, say, like I checked my digital portals, I’d think I had a serious problem.

I do, and it has a name, coined by a former Apple employee, Linda Stone. Continuous partial attention (CPA) describes this behaviour. “We are always on high alert, scanning the periphery for other opportunities,” she says. CPA, and the concomitant state of the do-it-now mentality, make us multitask, and speedily, so concentration is poor and mistakes are made. We all know that reading emails while on the phone to a client or when out with friends doesn’t work.

Griffey says we can all concentrate well and do the job once. Concentration leads to success. We’d leave work earlier. We’d also get more out of food, music, people, flat-pack furniture, everything. But avoidance, negative thinking and digital dependence are formed habits, so stopping them takes discipline.

There could be longer-term implications. De Botton argues that a lack of concentration is affecting our ability to be alone and unstimulated, and it could make us stupid. While scientists know our behaviour is changing, they don’t know how that affects our neural structure. We must relearn how to concentrate, says De Botton, who has all but banned his children from computers.

Naturally, Griffey, an erstwhile “flutter-brain”, is “very good now” at concentrating, but arguably the biggest driver was having children. “With babies, you have 90 minutes to yourself, tops, to focus,” she says. “Eight hours now seems an infinite time.”

From the man who thought five hours’ work a week was too much — Timothy Ferriss, the author of The 4-Hour Workweek — comes the “low-information diet”, where you focus on output (work), not input (news, emails, surfing). Ferriss talks of “attention management” — which, he argues, we need like time management. “Information consumes attention,” he says. “ The only option is selective ignorance — one of the few common traits among top performers.” De Botton supports this notion: “My real work happens in bed or in the bath — away from the infernal machine.”

Information dieters report feeling as refreshed as after a two-week holiday. But as we already know, dieting runs counter to our natural impulses — no wonder we are seeing the rise of internet-addiction clinics. That’s just the start of the attention economy. The Future Laboratory predicts attention managers, deletion parties and time coaches. IBM, Intel and Deloitte are implementing “technology quarantines” — no-email days, no-computer days even — and with positive results: improved relations and greater productivity.

If we want results, we need to “single-task”, says Ferriss, finishing one task before starting another, and resisting instant gratification. “Lots of people say they’d love to write a book,” says Griffey. “I say, you can. You just need to concentrate for long enough.” It’s time to start paying attention to paying attention.

PAY ATTENTION NOW

Practice the five-more rule Force yourself to read for five more minutes, write for five more minutes or learn five more things before getting distracted.

Exercise Mental activities such as sudoku and memory games promote agility. Try meditation, t’ai chi and yoga.

Rest Relax constructively: sports, games and hobbies are good; television is not. Twenty-minute naps refresh the brain.

Be cyber-savvy Only check your emails once an hour and turn off any alerts.

Go rustic Urban settings put you on high alert. If you can’t take a country walk, take lunch in the park.

Know yourself Find your chronotype (are you an owl or a lark?), so you can work when you’re most alert.

Prepare Envisage your desired outcome (as golfers do); keep a notepad to hand to record other thoughts and focus on the task.

Don’t try harder, try differently To beat a mental block, pique your interest — tweak your imagination, find your hook.

What Stress Means to You

Posted on Updated on

Stress is something that is in everyones day to day life. There are people that have a lot of stress, but at the same time, they do not let it get to them. Then also, you will find there are those who let nothing get to them at all. This is what keeps them from going crazy. Then there are people that worry so much that they get so stressed out that they go crazy. You could put your mind to these types of things to help your self out before something like this happens. There are many forms and types of help to avoid having stress at all.

           

There are a few different types of stress, depending on what you are stressed about. You could be stress about, work, money, relationships, or just any situation like that. There are many ways to handle things before you stress yourself out over it. Even if you worry a little bit about something, it could lead to stress which then could lead on to other things which impact on your health and wellbeing and relationships with others.

           

Stress is something that you would want to avoid as much as possible. It could lead to health risks, being put on medication or even a stay  in hospital, finding it difficult to communicate with others, etc.   

Thinking positive will reduce the risk of being stressed out, though that can be easier said than done at first.  Thinking negative can contribute to your feelings ofo being stressed out. Worrying about things is also a leading cause of stress. Therefore, as long as you think positive this will help you to enjoy life with it being stress free.

           

You could get so stress out, and not bother talking to some one or not communicate effecitvely, this could impact on your relationships with friends and family.  Should those relationships become strained it could make you feel more stressed than before.

Stress could definitely lead to a lot of different things that could make the stress problem worse. Stress could lead to many things that could change your life making it more difficult to cope.  It could put a lot of strain on your marriage and make it more difficult to relate to your children.  It could impace on your ability to hold down a job.  For some it may lead to hair loss, nerve problems, head problems, and or worse. The best thing for you to do is stop the stress problem before it leads to something severe.

Sometimes the ability to cope with stress, or becomeing more stressed, is due to another medical condition that you are unaware of so it is worth getting yourself checked out by the doctor.

Life can be very fun, and enjoyable without stress.

Finding out more about stress.

Posted on Updated on

The definition of stress can mean different things to different people. 

Many people have different feelings about it and have many causes for it as well.  It can be hard to pin point just exactly what stress is, but stress is something that can affect the body and the mind of just about anyone. 

Stress is usually considered the buildup of anxiety and pressures on any given person.  There is only so much pressure that one person can handle and stress will occur when the person has had their fill of it.  Stress itself is not necessarily a dangerous thing.  A problem may arise when the person who is under a great deal of stress can no longer function, for example in day to day activities, and is letting it get on top of them.

Many people experience stress due to the job or career path they follow.  Some people bring their worries and troubles in the workforce home with them, which will cause them to have a build up of too much stress in their life.  This can mean that they are having a hard time dealing with pressures and may start to have mood swings or be depressed a lot

Some stress about work when at home and vice versa, and this may cause them to struggle more in day to day things as their focus is elsewhere.

Some people have too much stress at home.  It may be because of a dysfunctional relationship with a partner or child.  This can cause a person to loose sight of what they are doing and they may have too much to deal with at one time.  This can be a reason for a person to have some difficulties dealing with their stress because they are not sure how to fix a problem. 

 

It is very normal for people to have some form of stress on their mind.  It is something that we all have had to deal with and we eventually get through it.  However, there are some that cannot work past it and this will lead to more problems that can become very serious for them later down the road.  This will include their emotional and their physical health. 

 

When a person has too much stress, they must find help from a source that they can trust.  It is important to get things under control so that the person will have a chance for a happy and healthy lifestyle.  There are ways to control stress and deter your body from it.  All you have to do is recognize when you are under too much stress and that you need to get help for it.
