Much as we talk a good game about professionalism and rational decision-making and culture change and visibility and business models, those darn feelings get in the way.
In fact, pretty much everyone who comes to me for help at least partially needs support to feel different feelings than they're feeling.
We feel intimidated by a massive project.
We feel anxious about a meeting coming up.
We feel annoyed about the behaviour of a colleague and then less than capable of having the conversation we want to have.
We feel like an imposter when we're asked to talk on a topic, even if we are qualified on paper to do so.
We feel overwhelmed at the size of change needed in the system.
We feel ashamed about how behind we are with our to-do list and how little we get done in a day.
And those feelings, whilst not 'negative' are often unhelpful.
There are many ways to deal with 'stuff', all of which work for some people some of the time. I'm certainly not denying that the help of a a qualified mental health professional is vital at times.
In this class, I share with you a tool that's free, self-facilitated, non-dogmatic, non-New-Age-y and that has given me some profound freedom at difficult points in my life. It's the work of a woman called Byron Katie (who everyone calls 'Katie). It has often helped me to unpick the thoughts that lead to unhelpful feelings, sometimes in a matter of seconds.
In 30 minutes, I share the four questions that make up the process, and then what I've learned about how to make them work faster. I dived into Katie's work about 8 years ago, and have some experience about how to avoid the pitfalls of implementing it.
