What do perspective and perception have to do with wellbeing, staff retention and team satisfaction? Quite a lot according to research - to the point that many models of therapy and coaching are built around these concepts.
From larger ideas such as our “frame of reference” or “window on the world”, to the way we perceive thoughts and experiences on a daily basis, becoming more aware of the impact of our viewpoints and processing on our happiness & satisfaction can be empowering.
And with staff retention and satisfaction issues from presenteeism, ‘quiet quitting’ and ‘resenteeism’ becoming increasingly challenging, this is a particularly important time to look at issues like this.
In this session we will explore different elements and potential impacts of perspective & perception, discuss how we can apply them in the real world, and identify some practical steps that can positively impact our own wellbeing, happiness and success in the workplace.
In today’s workplace and the world around us, there can be many things out of our control. And at times like this, we tend to have 2 options:
1) Focusing on things we can’t control (leading to decreased agency, dissatisfaction and possible burnout)
2) Focusing on what we can control (while nudging the edges!)
Both paths can lead to quite different outcomes.
In this session we’ll look at topics such as:
Zones of Influence
Gratitude and Appreciation – the science behind these
Celebrating our strengths and successes – the science behind these
Frame of Reference / Window on the World
Practical steps to take this into the real world
