Zoom Session. 5.30pm (AEDT) on Monday February 12 at
Why do some attempts to improve a situation actually worsen it? Stressed or embarrassed, we become blind to our poor behaviour. Older parts of our brain take over our actions. Daniel Goleman called it the amygdala hijack. It is relevant to our ability as facilitators to deal with difficulty. It also assists us to help our participants. We are less blind to other's behaviour. The SFN session will therefore at first explore the topic using a case study. We can then develop it further to learn how to remedy our own blindness.
