We examine: What is change, feeling out of control and can we ever have certainty?

We look at the nature of fear (brought about by change) and what it does to the brain (freezes the pre-frontal cortex).

We catch fear and negativity from others, disabling the solutions centres in the brain. We explore Ruby Wax’s definition of how human beings best process news; it turns out we best process news/change/threat from our neighbours, and information, and change are best handled “locally” and not globally – we are used to hearing news (from an evolutionary biology sense) “tribally” from our network, and not through beamed images from distant lands.

We are best suited to groups of just 120 people, and we operate best in small groups, we best process change through honest and informed dialogue.


    We then dissect the strategies that we can employ to give us the best chance of dialling down fear and paralysis, an upping how we might be nimble, take advantage change (even) of new opportunities, staying creative and open – Tools for Titans (see below)

    Time – making sure that wellbeing is considered to foster resilience

    Focussed Attention – letting go of fear, focussing on positive strategies such as meditation, Qi Gong, Breathing and avoidance strategies such as media block outs, phone discipline, information control, avoiding gossip/rumours

    Physical health – In times of fear, it is easy to go down the path of drinking too much/eating too much/ too much TV, and other addictive behaviour – how do we make stress positive

    Rest and Recovery – Sleep, worry explored

    Fuel – what we can fuel ourselves with (balancing hormones, and blood sugar – energy, to avoid addiction)

    Emotion and Commotion – Strategies – breathing, meditation, etc

    Community and Giving – looking outside yourself is the best way to conquer fear – when we open to the wider community, we realise it isn’t “each man for himself” 8. Summary and action plan
