You will experience how a positive and agile mindset, and the ability to self-regulate, will bolster your capacity to communicate, manage conflict and act in productive ways in the midst of challenge and stress. You will have opportunities to explore your ingrained thinking habits and will learn how to adopt a resilient mindset.  You will leave each workshop with greater self-awareness and a few key behaviors that will result in positive outcomes across all areas of your life.

About the Mental Agility Workshop

In this workshop, you will learn what mental agility is, and how your ability to be flexible in your thinking supports resiliency. You will uncover your personal “fixed mindset traps” – ways of thinking that prevent you from operating with a growth mindset. You will explore “thinking traps” and learn how they make it difficult to see the current situation as it is. This is especially true in times of fatigue, stress, and ambiguity. You will leave the workshop with techniques that you can apply immediately, allowing you to stop unproductive thoughts in their tracks, and regain your focus and clarity, and engage in productive solutioning.
