MENTAL CONDITIONING

'Recent research in neuroscience shows we can train our minds like we train our bodies at the gym to stay calm and focused when dealing with pressure situations'

Mental conditioning involves building mental skills in order to achieve goals and consistently deliver, taking a proactive approach to optimizing wellbeing and performance.  Recent neuroscience research shows we can train our minds like we train our bodies at the gym to stay calm and focused when dealing with pressure situations.  Having a toolkit of effective coping strategies can help you increase productivity, manage stress effectively and improve interpersonal relationships.  Techniques such as mindfulness and reframing lets you ‘stay in the zone’ and perform at the highest level.

The Coaching Engagement will be 6 months, broken down as follows: - Month 1 & 2: 1 hour sessions, bi-weekly (4 bi-weekly sessions) - Month 3-6: 1 hour sessions, monthly (4 monthly sessions) with 30-minute “Unlimited Laser Coaching”: 30 min calls as often as preferred between scheduled sessions. These must be scheduled using the Coach’s online Scheduling service (tuition sliding-scale available based on need).

Mindfulness
Stress Management

Mindfulness is a multi-sensory experience that involves paying sustained attention to the present moment with an attitude of curiosity, openness and acceptance.  According to the Harvard Business Review: “Mindfulness should no longer be considered a “nice-to-have” for executives. It’s a “must-have”:  a way to keep our brains healthy, to support self-regulation and effective decision-making capabilities, and to protect ourselves from toxic stress.” It has been associated with a variety of mental physical, emotional and relational benefits. Top international companies such as Google, Ebay, Facebook and Ernst & Young have started using mindfulness training to promote sustained wellbeing of their employees based on the scientifically proven benefits.

Stress is a mental, physical and emotional response to a challenging situation, rather than the event itself. The stress response is switched on when a person perceives a situation to be threatening.

 

Stress is a mainstay of modern day urban life; it can be acute, when you become startled by a car backfiring, or chronic such as the stress associated with a life lacking work life balance or interpersonal relationships. Stress can be positive, acting as an indicator, mobilizing a person to accomplish meaningful goals, or debilitating, negatively impacting, health wellbeing and performance.  Stress becomes damaging when it impedes one’s ability to function in daily life over a prolonged basis.  Stress may leave you feeling lethargic, irritable, overly emotional and unable to concentrate.

In addition, it can negatively impact your physical health and cause illness, particularly when chronic stress is prolonged and unaddressed. For three and a half years, I facilitated psycho-educational workshops, documenting the results of a stress management program developed for my PhD research. This evidence-based program reduced the stress levels of participants while improving life satisfaction and cognitive performance, with lasting effects. I believe this training program has wide implications for personal wellness on both the individual and group level within the corporate sector, as it teaches techniques that allow clients to develop a personalized tool kit to deal with daily life pressures.

Emotional Intelligence refers to the ability to accurately identify your emotions and the emotions of others, using emotions effectively during critical thinking or problem solving activities.  In addition, it involves the ability to regulate your emotions and influence others in a positive way either by calming them down or cheering them up during difficult times, handling interpersonal relationships astutely and empathetically.

Emotional Intelligence

Research shows that “75% of careers are derailed for reasons related to emotional competencies, including the inability to handle interpersonal problems; unsatisfactory team leadership during times of difficulty or conflict; or the inability to adapt to change or elicit trust.”- The Center for Creative Leadership.  Thus, fostering emotional intelligence can be a critical component of workplace wellness as employees with high EQ show enhanced competencies at working in teams, are flexible and amenable to change.
