Just be yourself but who the hell is that? Using ego states for optimal performance
Time & Location
Sep 28, 8:30 AM – 10:30 AM
About the event
It’s pretty obvious to most of us that we have different aspects of our personalities that come out in different situations. We are different around our parents than we are our bosses. We have a different attitude and persona when dealing with children than we do dealing with our coworkers, or hopefully we do. What if we can examine these different states, get to know them and call them at will to help us achieve more and optimize our time and performance?
Using ego state theory we can identify the working aspects of our personality, name them and learn how to bring forward our best self for the situation at hand. Practical, easy and effective techniques to help you be the best you you can be.
- Learn what ego states are and how they are formed.
- Discover your ego states and how to map them for optimal execution.
- Gain practical knowledge of techniques that will bring different states into the executive to handle the task at hand.
- Explore anchoring techniques to guarantee the right aspect for the job is available to you.
- Learn to negotiate with states in conflict (i.e. one wants to rest the other wants to plug away at work).
