Boost collaboration and well-being in the workplace through increased flexibility, resilience and tolerance.
“Zoom-Out to find the most helpful perspective”
N.B. Please note this is the free introductory workshop (60 – 90 mins). If you are looking for the in-depth “Foundation Workshop” that can be found here.
As human beings our evolutionary success stems from our large brains, opposable thumbs and our ability to focus on details and conduct precision work.
However, in the modern age, the combination of our imagination and our tendency to obsess on detail can at times dent our happiness and be a source of stress and anxiety. This reduces our performance by making us less smart, less creative, have poorer attention, poorer memories… the list goes on.
An antidote is the Zoom-Out. A mental tactic for increased resilience and well-being. It’s also a powerful way to step outside of ourselves and engage with those “challenging” situations and people in a more proactive and positive way. This is a valuable skill in the workplace where collaboration, tolerance and resilience are increasingly needed.
The core Zoom-Out PRINCIPLE is: “Zoom-Out to find the most helpful perspective”
