    DEBRIEF and meaningful emotional discharge are essential.

    Experience in this field of Psychology has taught me that staff (actually, all of us) have learned to just “cope” in such a way that we do not really pay attention to our emotional well-being and reckon that it is not a priority. Especially people who tend to suppress emotion in times of stress and pressure. Oh, and who among us would just decide to see a counsellor or Psychologist if we were simply experiencing anxiety or stress? This ignorance in our society often leads to burnout which results in extremely unproductive functioning. Then we are surprised when we suddenly get ill or get some strange reaction in our bodies. That’s why a workshop is an answer. The workshop is unique and provides knowledge and insight into the processes that each worker is confronted with and creates emotional stability. Staff suddenly have the opportunity to defuse underlying emotions and they realize that they are not alone in their experiences and emotions of uncertainty, anxiety, frustration, loss and trauma. It transforms the workplace into a healthy environment where employees and employers can work diligently, creatively and productively. It creates an emotionally secure work environment, where challenges are welcomed.

    The challenge for every team is to work together effectively, to reach deadlines and maintain good working relationships. Because of this it is important for team members to understand that every person has his / her own unique way of thinking. When there is understanding and knowledge of the difference in thought processes of team members, there can be effective communication, trust and increased productivity. Attendees will gain insight and knowledge about typical thinking and stress patterns within the team. They will learn what their own stress patterns and thinking preferences are and compare it with those of the team. The knowledge and insight that each attendee receives about brain functioning, conflict management and effective communication ensures that expert teams are built and sound thinking processes are established.

    Serious time constraints, different communication channels to various stakeholders, and sometimes a very stressful environment are stressors that can lead to unproductive results, miscommunication, conflict, poor memory and symptoms of burn- out. To be productive, requires a purposeful team that can effectively collaborate and communicate. The individual team members can function sufficiently when they each understand their role and respect each other’s roles. Any miscommunication or conflict hinders the process to deliver quality work, wastes time and energy, causes team members to lose focus and lead to demotivation and unproductivity. It boils down to the fact that relationships cause most of the stress in the work environment.

    The main cause of miscommunication and conflict is stress. Therefore, it is vital for every person who forms part of any project team or workplace to gain knowledge and insight into the differences between his / her own and others’ thinking patterns and stress functioning.  Behavioural tools to manage stress effectively and successfully is essential for team collaboration and productivity.

    Coaching Session Duration: 1 hour – Individual Session / Group of 4-8 individuals

    Coaching is a non-judgemental, completely confidential and safe process that will help leaders to take action and optimise their focus and productivity through creating awareness of different perspectives and alternative solutions. A coach supports the leader to be effective, productive and successful. Coaching is not mentoring/ counselling or consulting. Coaching is a thought provoking, creative, solution orientated process that inspires and maximise personal and professional potential.

    Leadership coaching ensures an effective and productive leadership approach with the ability to apply focussed realistic action plans. Leadership coaching uses thinking preferences and stress functioning to address the unique focus of the action plan that the leader formulated.
    We only use accredited International Coaches (ICF).

    “I found the Dare process to be very helpful to guide the interactions in the team, and to have a clear understanding of how team members would respond under stress. After the findings made during the Dare analyses, we managed to function significantly better as a team, acknowledging weaknesses and strengths and building on better communication. It was also very helpful to understand in which aspects of career and job guidance the staff would require management input. This de-complicated my role as manager significantly.”

Ek wil begin om daardeur te werk en te verbeter. Ek dink dit was ‘n wonderlike sessie en dat ek baie hieruit geleer het en dit nou saam met my kan vorentoe neem.”
