Professional Development Morning Concludes

Workshop 1

Purposeful Career Planning with Danielle Duell, CEO and Founder of People with Purpose and Former CEO of Riverlife and Spicers Retreats.

Engage in a series of reflective exercises to become clearer about your purpose, values and goals. Then, using these insights, you will be able to consider your career pathways and identify actions to create a more purposeful future. 

Workshop 2

Subconscious Habits of Thought (SHoTs), facilitated by esteemed neuroscientist Dr Diane Harner, will help you to discover how your brain might get in the way of you achieving success.

Neuroscience is one of the hottest topics in business. People are becoming increasingly curious about what drives their thoughts and behaviour in order to enhance their own success and that of their team. Diane is a neuroscientist with 13 years of experience in the corporate environment and has engineered her own success by understanding what makes people tick, including herself. We all develop subconscious habits of thought that determine our automatic responses to situations, people, and environments. Whilst our brains are trying to be helpful and efficient by generating these automatic responses, sometimes they can get in the way of either setting, pursuing, or achieving our goals. 

In this session, you will: 

  • Participate in a diagnostic assessment and receive insight into your primary subconscious habits of thought (pre-work) 
  • Understand why the brain manufactures automatic responses or habits 
  • Learn about the eight common Subconscious Habits of Thought (SHoTs) that can impact our success 
  • Discover how to be more aware when automatic thinking is getting in your way 
  • Develop strategies to overcome these automatic responses
