Two sessions are taking place next week, led by Dr Jamie McDonald of Skyward Coaching and Development. Open to all staff:
The right kind of people – networking without nausea
Tues 29 Jan, 09:30 – 12:30
If you have a sense of where you’re going in your career (or any other context) you will need to find people who are willing to help and to form some kind of connection with them. Despite the fact that everyone recognises how necessary it is to form and maintain effective relationships with the right people, there can be few topics that provoke quite the strength of reaction that networking does. People often have an image of phoney chit-chat with an ulterior motive held over canapés and cheap warm wine, rather than mutually beneficial conversations with interesting people.

Getting the Job Done
Tues 29 Jan, 13:30 – 16:30
Suitable for: Anyone wanting to get around behaviours that stop them getting on with what they’ve set out to do. Anyone with perfectionist tendencies, who takes on too much, who is scared of making mistakes, who finds a million other things to do before they start, who is put off by getting feedback or who just can’t seem to take that first step. Anyone who procrastinates.
Notice when they are tripping themselves up and find new ways to get back into action
Erode the habit of tripping themselves up
Achieve what they really want
