Event Invitation:

Adapting to challenges in our dynamic world

Ever feel overwhelmed by the fast-flowing current of the modern workplace? You’re not alone. Our brains are largely hard-wired to seek out negative thoughts to protect us from danger, in fact it’s linked to the fight or flight response.

But we can change this. Through reframing our psychological and physiological actions, it’s possible to shape our thought patterns and behaviours to becomes stronger, more resilient employees.

Join Lance Burdett for an evening of conversations, drinks and canapés as he discusses how emotions impact our behaviour – and how by understanding our emotional reactions we can learn to control people easier and reduce conflict.


From this presentation you will:

  • Learn how negative beliefs are a barrier to overcoming difficulties, and how optimism can help you transform your thoughts to reduce stress
  • Understand how our thoughts, attitudes and beliefs are the most important aspect of communication in influencing our reaction to an event.
  • Learn how empathy for others can enable you to improve communications and decrease tension
