If stress is already part of your life, then this workshop is perfect for you. This could mean you’re an entrepreneur dreaming up your start-up, a scientist, a coder, a designer, an community builder, a student or a writer  - all that matters is that you stop being stressed and start finding your creative flow.
 
Why does Flow even matter?

You keep losing your productive edge.
You have writer’s block or coder’s block and things you used to come easily are now a source of pain and frustration.
You have trouble managing your emotions and fear keeps getting in the way of your good ideas.
You have trouble sustaining momentum on projects and tend to quit early rather than to finish what you started.
You have no idea how to gain access to groundbreaking insights and ideas when you need them most.
You keep bashing into walls but never breaking thru.
Your emotions keeping getting in the way of your desired outcomes. Fear of failure keeps you from committing to projects; perfectionism keeps you from making your work public.

Flow can help.

Flow is practical, experiential and experimental. You will learn how to apply it to whatever problem you’re trying to solve and see what happens.

And, did you know…

Flow increases your problem-solving abilities by over 400 percent.
Flow actually trains the brain to think more creatively over the long haul.
Flow is also the condition for “Ah-ha” insight, meaning being in the zone makes you primed for breakthrough insight.
Flow resets the nervous system, calming us down so we can avoid burnout and gain access to much-needed insight.

DEFINE YOUR BOUNDARIES, OWN YOUR SUCCESS!

Tuesday 30 October, 18:30 - 20:30 at Impact Hub Geneva

Often, I sabotage my success and happiness by not taking into account and not actively acting upon my own preferences, needs and values. I have discovered two reasons for doing this: not understanding myself well enough, and lacking the necessary strength to enforce my non-negotiables. 
 
The point is that, at times, I don’t set healthy (mental/intellectual/emotional/ time) boundaries and thus fail to protect and take good care of myself.
 
Does this ring a bell? Does this apply to you too? If so, join in!
 
By attending this workshop you will discover:
 
  • What are boundaries
  • Why are they important to set
  • How to create your healthy boundary blueprint
 
What do you need?
 
  • A concrete example of a situation in which you have felt taken advantage of, not valued, not respected
  • A bit of bravery to open up in a safe space
  • Some compassion for yourself and the other participants 
  • Willingness to collaborate 
  • Willingness to share your feelings, discoveries and blueprint
 
What will you do?
 
  • Reflect on your preferences, needs and values within the example you have chosen
  • Create a blueprint of your healthy boundaries
  • Get ready to go out and act upon them


    Price: 30 CHF for non-Impact Hub Members & 10 CHF for Impact Hub Members

As a self-saboteur-in-chief, my mind is a busy place, full of games it likes to play. One of them is dwelling on  "If only...".  It dwells on "If only..." as regards the past, present and the future.  This game 
leaves me feeling regretful, not in control and sad. But most importantly it paralyzes my abilities to take action. 

So, how might we turn this around?  How might we embrace the "If only..." thoughts to get a different result? 

By attending this  workshop you will:

  • Discover how to embrace your "If only..." thoughts
  • Practice tapping into the emotions the thoughts trigger
  • Trans.form the negative emotions into power to spur into action, inspiration and problem solving

What do you need?

  •  A concrete "If only..."  to experiment with 
  • A bit of bravery to open up in a safe space
  • Some compassion for yourself and the other participants 
  • Willingness to collaborate 
  • Willingness to share your creativity

What will you get?

  • A simple and effective tool to embrace your "If only..." thoughts and tap into the power of the negative emotions they bring about.
  • A personalized, yet collaboratively built strategy to choose from and act up.  


Price: 30 CHF for non-Impact Hub Members & 10 CHF for Impact Hub Members

Want to learn more, ready "The Confidence Gap" by Dr. Russ Harris
    

More



 
  In his book "The Confidence Gap: A Guide To Overcoming Fear and Self-Doubt"  Dr. Russ Harris presents a mindset known as psychological flexibility. It enables you to respond effectively to fear, anxiety and self-doubt.  

Wondering if this workshop is for you? Consider:

Does your mind give you all sorts of reasons why you should not do what matters? Do you hear the voice inside your head whispering: “It is too hard”, “I am too busy”, “I am not in the mood right now”, “I’ve got no motivation” or
 “I am too tired”?

These are perfectly normal thoughts that all human beings have at times, yet what makes the real difference is how we respond to them.

By joining “The Confidence Gap” workshop, you will learn a new way to respond to them; a way to take all the power out of them, so no matter how negative the stuff in your head is, you can still take action to do what truly matters to you.

We all get in our own way occasionally, yet some of us do it repeatedly; whether it’s procrastinating, overthinking or overeating. Self-sabotaging behavior results from a misguided attempt to rescue ourselves from our own negative feelings.

Using an experiential approach, this workshop will help you discover how to:


Reframe your failures

Analyse them
Move forward in an energizing and efficient manner
