This workshop will help you discover how best to manage yourself through the unpredictable times that we’re all currently living through. Now more than ever before, it is vital for us all to understand how to make the most of our natural strengths, to work together with colleagues in a positive and productive manner despite the many personal and collective challenges that we’re facing.
During the session we will explore the fundamental principles of Everyday Resilience, drawing from a wide range of sources. We’ll explore our innate ability to adapt; how our thinking shapes our experience; and how to take practical steps to ensure that we not only survive but also thrive in the face of adversity. The work environment we’ve been forced to adopt as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic offers us a unique opportunity to turn our focus on what really matters- our place and purpose in the world.
Justin’s session is about staying focused and in control. The entertainment industry has been hit particularly badly with stalled and cancelled projects. How do you remain positive and focused when challenged by external circumstances? How well will you be prepared when an opportunity arises?
Who it's for
Any TV freelancer who would like some tips and guidance on how to thrive when times get tough.
