Workshop or programme delivered:
During this series of two- and three-day workshops, which took place both indoors and outdoors, Performance Circle delivered sessions focused on equipping participants with the tools to inspire effective and efficient behavioural change in the workplace. Habits were identified and participants were shown how to break them, they were also given a suite of skills enabling them to influence, manage and effect change. Through a combination of education, training and coaching, the participants developed their mental skills and practiced mindful movement which, coupled with techniques in self-care and self-management, led to enhanced overall health and performance.
The participants felt that they gained the following benefits from the workshops. They felt empowered to challenge their own thinking and behaviour, as well as the ability to influence and effect change. They felt their knowledge improved and they had the confidence to implement it. Their awareness and communication skills became enhanced and they knew how to effectively build and maintain rapport in addition to how to break state and look after themselves in challenging situations. What’s more they reported that they had learned about the mind having explored the research into patterns which help and hinder behaviour. Such insights helped participants to learn valuable skills to influence motivation and confidence, whilst raising awareness of limiting beliefs which may be hindering their progress, for example with weight loss or pain management. They considered the knowledge gained to be highly transferable, not only in setting personal goals (such as improved confidence and fitness) but also in helping others to overcome health related barriers to success, alongside meeting professional targets and retention rates.
