Using Your Brain for A Change (webinar)

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
ONLINE COURSES

Competency: Library Management Competencies

Sub-Category: Staff Training and Development

Do you have habits that get in your way of getting what you want? 

Examples include negative thinking and self-talk, getting frustrated under pressure or just general stress. These all have one thing in common – they all start with a thought.

New research on brain functioning provides a solution for each of those challenges. This is not positive thinking, affirmations, or the law of attraction.

This is a science/evidence-based (peer reviewed) approach to intentionally re-wiring your brain to get it working for you, not against you – more often.

·         Less negative self-talk

·         To experience a more positive outlook on life

·         Consistently take action towards your ideal life

·         Eliminate unwanted patterns

·         To procrastinate less

·         To spend less time thinking about the past

·         Consistently act in alignment with your values

 Participants will learn:

·         A step-by-step process for creating new brain pathways

·         Why we have an unhealthy focus on the past

·         A daily practice for changing unhelpful patterns
