The word control can spark a range of emotions. Some see control as restrictive, creating a sense of claustrophobia. The overwhelm of too much structure can stifle the flow of spontaneity and creativity. To others, control is appealing. It provides a structure and order that calms their minds. Knowing that everything has a place and timelines are met to reach goals. So where is the balance between these two sides of the spectrum and how do we establish a healthy relationship with control in our lives?
A life in control is a discussion as we as humans flow on the pendulum of life. An opportunity to explore the elements of our lives that we have little to no control over, such as worldwide events. Whilst assessing the day to day decisions we make to move us from where we are today, specifically around our goals and aspirations to where we would like to be in future.
Key topics covered:
- What does control mean to you? Understanding your relationship with control and how this relationship is impacting your decision making processes.
- Where are you going? Do you have a plan and how will you activate it?
- Barriers: What to do when it doesn’t quite go to plan.
- Decision Fatigue: When you reach overwhelm and want to give up.
From the depths of vulnerability, courage is born, but the promised land of bravery is not a destination we are able to reach by walking alone. It is when we ‘walk beside’ each other through challenging times that we enable healing and renewed hope. In this process, we acknowledge that we as individuals are greater than the sum of our parts and that the ability to mindfully support another person’s healing journey empowers the greater good.
Let’s face it. It is never easy seeing someone we know in pain. Sometimes our inclination can be to offer advice or to prescribe what we think a person needs, rather than to listen. To share our opinions, perspectives, advice and agenda as opposed to being present. In these moments we might lack patience, or even feel like we need to control the outcomes or have all of the answers when we don’t.
In this presentation, Caroline presents a new frame for leaders and leaders in life seeking to empower themselves with the tools to provide intentional and intelligent support to those in need. This is the kind of support that sets up safe boundaries and compassionate spaces. One that builds on skills such as deep listening, empathy, and non-judgment. And one that provides a process as to how as supporters we can do our part in enabling healing transformations.
