'60 Minutes to Stay Sane!'
People are going stir-crazy. Working from home was fun at first but now people are all zoomed-out.
The world and his wife are purporting to tell you how to handle the lock-down – but most of their advice is not based on evidence.
Join us for an invitation only webinar that will explore how to look after yourself and your team. Based on some well-researched and powerful ideas from psychology and neuro-science, Henley’s Professor David Pendleton will be interviewed to explore models and approaches to support your thinking and people management in the current situation. David will present ideas and answer your questions, offering his advice to support your mental and physical wellbeing.
We will also share with you some guidance and tips to help improve your own and your team’s wellbeing with some practical exercises you can use every day, to help you stay well.
There will be an additional 15 minutes at the end with Anna Devrimci, an educationalist and Pilates expert who will demonstrate some short Pilates exercises that you can do any time – even from your office chair - to help you stay supple and refreshed as you work!
