What if you knew how to successfully manage your energy and thinking to stay productive, motivated and curious about what else you need to become the better version of yourself?

What if you had the tools to manage your feelings and stay mentally healthy?

What if you had a blueprint to understand what keeps you feeling connected to your sense of purpose and to other people?

Hi, I’m Dr Jenny Brockis

Creating Thriving Teams and Leaders

I’m an award-winning keynote speaker, a trained medical practitioner, a certified physician in lifestyle medicine and the author of the bestselling book: Smarter Sharper Thinking.

If, like me, COVID-19 wasn’t on your vision board for 2020, you may be wondering how all this unfolded so quickly, with the double threat of infection coupled with massive economic insecurity. 

In my recent conversations with CEOs, HR Managers and business owners I’ve been hearing about some of the difficulties being experienced by many in our brave new world, including: 

•  Problems with delivery

•  Problems with relatedness

•  Problems with exhaustion

Problems with Delivery

Working from home all sounds great until the reality of coping with two partners sharing limited working space, keeping the kids occupied and the realisation that all that time saved on not commuting has been eaten up by managing everything else, hits hard.

Staying productive just got a lot more challenging.

You’ve got the capability but no longer the environment that enables you to work at your best.

Fear of failure can start to rear its ugly head as you struggle to deal with the overwhelm of uncertainty and concern that you’re not being effective in keeping your team motivated or that you’re not able to provide the leadership your team seeks. 

You worry about keeping your team working and the business viable that you can’t even begin to plan what’s going to be needed, post COVID-19.

Problems with Relatedness

When working under pressure and experiencing high levels of stress that appear unresolvable at least for the foreseeable future, your brain switches into survival mode, on constant high alert to the ever-present threat of danger. 

This can result in a change in your thinking and actions. It’s harder to stay focussed, let alone make a decision. Irritability, frustration and emotional lability adding to your burden of trying to think straight. The balance between cognition and emotion becomes skewed and as emotions intensify, access to the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain used for rational thought logic and reasoning gets lost.

 As you become more inward focussed, lost in thought and struggling to manage your own emotions, it’s harder to remain empathetic to the feelings of your colleagues and employees.

Problems with Exhaustion

Back to back video conferencing and communicating virtually all day long is exhausting. If you ever thought working with people could be tiring, communicating via technology takes mental exhaustion to a new level, leading to brain fry.

You might have previously done extra work in the evenings or over the weekend but now by 5 pm you are done. Mentally exhausted to the point where you know you’re no longer safe to sit in the driver’s seat of your computer and in urgent need of some down time to rest and recuperate.

Except you’ve lost the ability to switch off.

With your mind constantly racing with thoughts, worries and concerns it gets harder to relax or sleep. You go to bed exhausted but either can’t fall asleep or can’t stay asleep as you toss and turn during the night. The vicious cycle of fatigue continues.

How to lead effectively in our brave new world

With anxiety levels rising, managing the uncertainty for our future, exhaustion with the present and the loneliness of living in a virtual world is getting harder by the day.

Which is why I’ve put together a series of webinars that address some of these issues.

Because:

What if you knew how to successfully manage your energy and thinking to stay productive, motivated and curious on what else you need to become the better version of yourself?

What if you had the tools to manage your feelings and stay mentally healthy?

What if you had a blueprint to understand what keeps you feeling connected to your sense of purpose and to other people?

Three-part Webinar Series

Available as stand-alone sessions or as a series of three

Webinar One - Working with What's Possible
Adjusting to working from home comes with its own sets of challenges.

Getting your new working environment working well requires the understanding of:

•  Getting really clear about what’s in your control and what isn’t

•  Creating your own Play List for what helps you work at your best

•  Optimising physical, mental and cognitive wellbeing by making self-care a top priority

• How being a creature of habit can supercharge your productivity

•  How your brain likes to trick you and what works to keep you focused

•  How to use possibility thinking to keep you curious to what could be done differently or better

 

Webinar Two - Seven Simple Hacks to Boost Your Mental Wellbeing
It’s not just COVID-19 that is threatening our wellbeing. Worry, overwhelm and severe chronic stress are putting us all at increased risk of developing anxiety and or depression.

Keeping yourself and those close to you safe includes:

•  Understanding how your brain works to know how to manage your mood

•  Finding the positive when the storm clouds are gathering

•  The single most important action to take each day

•  Learning the seven simple strategies to practice every day

•  Recognising the signs in others that they are struggling and knowing what to say and do

 

Webinar Three – Alone Together: How to connect in our virtual world
With an undefined timeframe of how long we’ll be expected to work apart, knowing how to deal with isolation and loneliness will become increasingly important.  Your sense of belonging impacts your energy, your desire to contribute, your health and your relationships. Loneliness highlights the grief for what we have lost.

Staying connected has never been so important as now. This is about:

•  Understanding your need to connect is as important to your health and wellbeing as air, food and water

•  Scheduling in time to connect every day with your colleagues, your family and friends

•  Seeking new ways to connect beyond the obvious

•  Tuning in to who in your community or workplace needs a helping hand

 

As a medical practitioner and lifestyle medicine physician, I get just how hard things are right now. It’s a struggle for us all as we strive to adapt and keep our heads above water.

If one or all of these webinars would be of benefit for you or your team, let’s set up a time to chat.
