Strategic Thinking & Problem Solving 

Workshop Overview:

Thinking critically is the ability to use knowledge, facts, and data to effectively solve problems.  The most creative solutions to problems don’t involve thinking “outside of the box” but rather, thinking “inside of the box”—meaning working within constraints and with limited resources.  By consistently activating the “higher order thinking” neural pathways in the brain, one can become more creative and agile in their everyday problem-solving. 

Objectives:

· Discuss five practical solutions to alleviate mental roadblocks

· Learn to strategize by applying five idea-generation techniques

· Improve feedback-giving skills through constructive critical analysis of information

· Identify tools and techniques to solve complex problems

Emotional Intelligence (EQ)


Workshop Overview:

Emotional literacy is the language of emotions. Emotions are encoded with valuable informational signals about what's important and what we must pay attention to. Emotions are messages from us to us. Eight primary emotions are linked to survival, but hundreds of feeling states exist. When our emotions are intense, we naturally focus on the loudest one. However, one aspect of emotional intelligence is identifying more than one emotion at a time. By increasing emotional literacy, one can:

Objectives:

·       Improve decision-making processes

·       Build the bridge between cognitive areas of the brain and the affective domain (felt experience).

·       Develop an emotional vocabulary that increases emotional fluency and agility.

Stress Management


Overview:

There are common misconceptions about self-care that act as a barrier to functioning to our fullest potential. Some of these misconceptions include self-care being synonymous with self-indulgence, selfishness, or being limited to physical well-being, such as exercise, sleep, nutrition, and hygiene. This two-part workshop examines the role of unmet emotional and psychological needs in disrupting the self-care process through the lens of self-determination theory and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. 

According to self-determination theory, people must experience autonomy, competence, and connection to achieve psychological growth. Unfortunately, due to a variety of environmental, social factors, or economic factors, our neurological hardwiring may not support such growth. 

Objectives:

• Discuss the role of the stress response system in disrupting meeting our immediate needs.

• Develop a personalized action plan to target unmet emotional and psychological needs to increase healthy motivation.

• Distinguish between wants and needs and how each has a unique relationship to motivation.

• Examine the prioritization of need identification mastery in self-care and stress reduction. 

Pre-workshop Exercises:

Please take a few moments to identify your unmet emotional needs using the worksheet provided. This worksheet is for personal self-reflection only.
