People Risk: Trauma in the workplace and life - what it is, how to recognise it, and how to help

Trauma touches our lives in many different ways. It can affect how you feel and think, and your physical wellbeing. The way a person reacts to trauma depends on many things. This includes the type and severity of the traumatic event, the available support following the incident, other stressors currently being experienced in the person’s life, certain personality traits, natural levels of resilience, and whether the person has had any traumatic experiences before. So what is trauma, how can we recognise trauma in those around us and how can we help?

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • What can constitute ‘trauma’? Let’s understand what trauma might mean.
  • How can experience and resilience impact the perception and impact of trauma.
  • How can we help ourselves, family members, and work colleagues who are impacted through trauma?

How to achieve your goals faster and easier

How would you feel if you could achieve your goals easier and sooner? For more than 25 years, Keith Abraham has educated over 1.6 million people in 39 countries on how to set personal and professional goals. 18 years ago, he started focusing on not just how to set and reach goals, but how to achieve them faster and easier.

Why? All too often, people take longer than they need to achieve their goals. They put roadblocks in their way, and delay or even never achieve what’s truly possible.

Four years ago, Keith started to design a GoalDriver diagnostic tool to assess what drives people to achieve their goals and how to identify an individual's desires, which stimulates the highest level of focus. Then, the final piece of the puzzle is to help them develop a level of personal determination to become compelled and committed.

This helps people move up a level by getting out of their comfort zone to achieve massive momentum. The GoalDriver gives you an unfair competitive advantage, and helps to eradicate your self-imposed limiting beliefs about yourself.

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • What DRIVES you to achieve your most important goals, personally and professionally
  • How to define what you really DESIRE to achieve in the year ahead, in your life and career
  • Why it’s critical to strengthen your DETERMINATION, by enhancing your daily habits and building your momentum mindset.
