Today's workforce is ever stressed and facing a myriad of experiences and challenges. 

From stressed-out leaders to overworked employees, the ability to regulate and manage our emotions is fast becoming a skill to hone. 

Studies show that certain skills are essential in today's world, and Emotional Intelligence is pivotal - research shows that emotional intelligence is four times better at predicting a person's success at work compared to IQ. Teams with highly emotionally intelligent people perform better and have increased job satisfaction and higher retention rates. Monica Mahi Mathijs, founder of Reach Outstanding and Monica Mahi Consulting, will cover the impact of Emotional Intelligence and use case study examples to highlight practical ways in which we can build our own Emotional Intelligence so that we can support our own growth and that of those around us. 

Yet at times, with the best intention in the world, we are stuck in a loop and struggle to grasp what is truly at play. We can feel anxious, suffer from self-doubt, lack confidence, fear failure, or dread being judged by others. Those can negatively impact our work performance and work relationships. It may lead us to miss opportunities, promotions, or amazing business deals. They can also discourage us from speaking up or even keep us worrying at night. For those in leadership and managerial positions, as is lacking emotional intelligence, those may have a significant impact on the business and its people whilst stopping you from ever truly feeling successful.

Transformational Mindset Coach, Flora Castillon, will break down the role of limiting beliefs we all carry in one way or another. Those can reflect in behavioural patterns such as perfectionism, imposter syndrome, a 'scarcity mindset' or a work-hard-only attitude. Flora brings us the raw and fascinating facts about how our subconscious plays a predominant role in our day-to-day life and will give some insights into how we can identify and address our limiting beliefs. The great news is that discoveries in neuroscience and neuroplasticity have proven that we can indeed re-programme our belief systems without taking a life-time.

Come prepared for an interactive and informative session and leave with tools to help you cultivate a mindset of Emotional Intelligence and free yourself from limiting beliefs so you can thrive in your career and workplace.

Those two fantastic speakers have had their own journey in the corporate world and have both lived their own transformational journey.

She experienced positive  changes by shifting her mindset and thought processes.
