We all want to feel in control of our lives. But sometimes ingrained and habitual behaviours cause us to act or react in ways that confound and stress us.

We all want to be treated with respect. But sometimes others treat us in ways we don’t understand.

This half-day workshop will reveal the often invisible influences, mindsets and behaviours that shape our daily lives and how we can transform them to our best advantage in our personal and professional contexts.
