Workshops

Cognitive Behavioural Coaching for High Performers

Date: 26 November 2014

Time: 9.30 am

Venue: HMLT103, Hugh MacKenzie Lecture Theatre, Kelburn Campus

Presenter: Maria Gardiner

Thirty years of the best research in psychology has shown that it is possible to change habits and behaviours that can get in the way of us achieving our full potential. It is possible to change the beliefs that underpin our behaviours and consequently our success. Despite there being an incontrovertible evidence base for how to improve our thinking and therefore our behaviours, the skills required to do this are not readily available to those wanting to maximise their performance. This unique workshop will bring you the latest research and practice in cognitive behavioural coaching (CBC) and show you how to apply it to your everyday life. 

In this workshop you will:

• Find out what CBC is
• Understand the fundamental thinking errors that reduce our performance
• Discover how we can use CBC to improve our performance
• Develop the skills you need to use it for yourself
• Explore other things that CBC is good for – confidence, resilience, work/life balance, good mental health and more!
