Week 1 – Creating balance, navigating change and maximising your natural strengths

Thursday 4th Feb, 10:30am – 11:45am AEDT

Most of us start a new year feeling motivated. We’ll drink less, move more! Start that business we’ve been banging on about for years! Bag that promotion or payrise! Finally make a juicy profit from our start-up! Religiously meal-plan so we’ll never have to order Uber Eats on a Tuesday! Read more and Insta-scroll less! Get around to doing the bathroom renos that have been on the table since 2015! We excitedly jot our intentions down, then sit back smugly with a glass of bubbles as the sun goes down on another year. But then … somehow BAU gets in the way (or a pandemic). Life gets in the way. Motivation fades. And before you know it, it’s December, and you’re sitting on the edge of your cracked bathtub wondering where the hell the year went. Well, Dr Cam McDonald is here to turbo-charge your motivation. He believes the key to staying motivated is personal: we’re all built differently, and we’re all motivated by different things and interactions – and our efforts are derailed by different things as well.

 

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • What drives us as individuals and why people fall off the wagon
  • How you can take control of your environment to create drive and motivation in all areas of your life – and find balance at the same time
  • How playing to your strengths and being authentic can help you achieve anything you want

Week 2 – Rushing Women’s Syndrome

Thursday 11 February, 10:30am – 12pm AEDT

Stress and overwhelm are often the root cause for so many health challenges, whether you suffer from anxious feelings, low moods, lousy energy, niggling health complaints or that relentless feeling that there must be a better way to live your life. You know in your heart when you’re feeling overwhelmed. It shows in up in your eyes when yet another thing gets added to your to do list, it appears in the disagreements you have with those you care about, and it impacts every decision you make. Yet, as much as you try to slow down, to reduce your burden or exercise your ‘no’ muscle, it can seem impossible to stop the stress from piling on. Well, it doesn’t need to be this way; it’s possible to solve your stress once and for all, says Dr Libby Weaver. To move from constantly feeling overwhelmed, to living a full and thriving life – without it costing you your mental, emotional and physical health in the process.

 

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • The signs and symptoms the body can give you when you’re stressed, and what’s driving them
  • Practical techniques to immediately calm your nervous system
  • New ways of approaching stress so that you can truly overcome your overwhelm for good

Week 3 – Goal setting and visualisation

Thursday 18 February, 10:30am – 11:30am AEDT

While many of us set goals each year, many of us also fail to achieve them – despite our best intentions and even a plan. Of course, if you didn’t knock your 2020 goals out of the park, you’ve got a pretty damn good excuse (ahem, global pandemic) – but, in this week’s session, Chelsea Pottenger will show you how you can achieve everything you set out to in 2021 with this no-excuses, get-it-done guide. You’ll break limiting beliefs, set purposeful goals and practise visualisation, leaving with a clear vision of where you’re headed and how you’re going to get there (it’s like Google Maps for your goals).

 

In this session, you’ll learn how to:

  • Shift your mindset to bring abundance and success into your life
  • Set goals, both personal and professional, and craft an action plan
  • Practise visualisation and create the ultimate vision board
  • Hit your goals faster and overcome limiting beliefs

Week 4 – The art of saying no

Thursday 25 February, 12:30pm – 1:45pm AEDT

It’s said that the word ‘no’ is a whole sentence, which is true, but it’s not an easy sentence for many women. We’ve been socialised to be always available to others, and we fear the ramifications of saying no. Guilt, selfishness and fear are some of the emotions we feel if we’re not used to turning people – or things – down. But the impact of being always available and fearing not being liked means we often feel taken for granted, overwhelmed and resentful, because every time we say yes to someone else, we risk saying no to ourselves. Our homes, careers and relationships suffer when we are stretched too thin … so saying no is the only way to stay sane. But how do you do it – especially if you’re a natural people pleaser? Kemi Nekvapil has the answers.

In this session, you’ll learn how to:

  • Say no even when your knees are shaking
  • Techniques to say ‘no’ in a straightforward and kind manner
  • Explore where your automatic ‘yes’ comes from and how to use this as a superpower

Week 5 – The science of how to design your most effective workday

Thursday 4 March, 10.30am-11.45am AEDT

We’re living in a world where productivity books litter the shelves in bookstores, to-do list apps frequently top the iTunes charts, and the idea of getting things done (GTD) has practically become a religion. Yet with all these tools and advice, many of us feel like there are not enough hours in the day. What’s more, lots of us leave work and wonder, ‘What did I actually achieve today?’ During this interactive session, Dr Amantha Imber will share with you an evidence-based approach to completely change the way you work – to enable you to do better work. She’ll take you through the latest research that will help you transform your work habits to ensure you get high-impact, meaningful work achieved every single day. Work more efficiently, and you’ll have more time for things you really love, such as spending time with your family, a Pilates class … or watching Netflix with a tub of Valhalla.

 

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How your current behaviour is killing your ability to do impactful work.
  • Practical strategies to turbo-charge your progress on your most important projects
  • How to change your work habits so they support your ability to do great work rather than hinder it
