Current challenges are creating new ways of working and opportunities to develop skills to approach stressful and emotional changes, and remain connected while physically isolated.
Langley Group offers a suite of webinars and virtual learning opportunities utilised by our global clients to improve workplace culture, wellbeing, and performance.
Our well-researched scientific content, practical activities and engaging learning experiences facilitated by a professional and experienced team is available at the time and place to suit your people. We use everything we know from neuroscience and positive psychology to generate powerful and practical learning.
We are able to deliver learning through our own digital platform or yours.
We suggest the following…
Leading and Motivating in a Virtual World
Learn about the power of social networks to influence. Then harness the science of self-determination theory to support motivation in a virtual world and leverage the science of positive communication to engage and include.
- Explore the evidence of the power of social networks for positive influence
- Understand the mechanisms to enhance and create conditions for high levels of motivation
- Discuss practical strategies to communicate and motivate in a virtual world
Human Connectivity – Retaining Connectedness in Isolated Teams
We all crave positive relationships at work. Inspiring connections with colleagues, bosses, team members and clients can make the critical difference in a rewarding, engaging work life.
Good relationships boost our mood and buffer us when times are tough. They decrease our stress levels, improve our physical health and help us build the resources and skills to collaborate and succeed in our roles.
This session reminds us physical distancing is not the same as social distancing. This is about using what we know from social neuroscience to find ways to stay connected.
Taking on the Challenge Response
How you view stress will influence how it impacts you. Ellen Langer’s view of mindfulness provides insight into how our thoughts influence our outcomes. Being mindless can lead us to categories and then live in line with the rules of that category.
In this session we will look at how we can shift our thoughts around the challenges going on in our lives in a way that could make us happier, healthier and better able to reach our goals. Providing insight into small things you can do to make a massive difference in how you view your current world.
When we are feeling uncertain often our basic routines are impacted. Once this happens and our emotions threaten to overwhelm us, it is easy to slip into ‘less effective’ habits. Our eating, drinking, exercise and sleeping routines are our foundations and without these it is tougher to handle difficult situations.
Thriving in times of Change
Your ability to anticipate and adapt to change — in other words, your change agility — is a critical core competency in today’s world. The evolving field of neuroscience offers fascinating insights and strategies to help you to react more positively and cope better when confronted with change.
Handling Emotions in Uncertain Times
With the current global situation we are all experiencing changes to our lives. This session helps address some of the emotions we may be experiencing with changes in our routine, our work, our finances. Designed to specifically help us handle the emotions that come up along the way and to remain connected to our work and our people.
