Tough conversations can happen with anyone: boss, member, co-worker, client. Sometimes you can anticipate them. At other times, they blindside you. Not only do you feel the pressure of these exchanges, but your neck knots up. Your stomach turns somersaults. Then it gets hard to think clearly and handle it as you'd like to.

Physical discomfort requires physical strategies.​ This training offers simple techniques to get you and your body working together so you can stay on track and excel under pressure.

Learning objectives:

By the end of the half-day workshop you will be able to:

  • Describe how our nervous system responds to challenges or stressors
  • Experience the relief of tuning in to internal clues at an earlier stage
  • Apply different physical techniques that feel good & keep our thinking brain online.

What to expect from Shayna's training:

  • An interactive combination of theory, reflective dialogue, and practice
  • Choices of ways to engage with the activities (that aren't role plays)
  • That the pace of this workshop is likely slower than your usual pace Hopefully new and interesting ideas & some laughs
