Challenging Conversations

“I was able to reflect on my approach and perceptions/misconceptions that anyone can have going into a potentially difficult situation.” Teach First Delegate

This highly popular session has featured as part of the Teach First NPQ Conference and as a stand alone session for individuals.

During the session you’ll gain an understanding of the psychology that underpins conversations and the complexities of what takes place on the pre-conscious and unconscious levels when we interact with others.

The session will also help you to understand:

  • Why you may feel anxious in the run up to a conversation
  • How an understanding of Transactional Analysis Ego States can improve your interactions with others
  • How to ensure you get your point across clearly
  • Verbal and non-verbal cues
  • How your awareness of what to do in these situations can ensure your conversations become easier and have a more favourable outcome.

Imposter Syndrome

“The Imposter syndrome session was a fantastic opportunity to reflect on personal development and think about other people in the team. Amanda was incredibly inspiring and I will be taking back to school the things she spoke about and the idea of self-belief” Teach First Delegate

In this session you’ll learn about the psychological roots of imposter syndrome and how you can use this knowledge to counteract negative effects and become confident in the position you hold and the place you’ve been given.

This is your opportunity to learn how to embrace your place at the table and understand that you have everything you need to do whatever you’ve been called to do.

Attendees will develop an understanding of the psychological impact of imposter syndrome, learn techniques to put the self-defeating thoughts in their place and embrace their ability to own their place at the table.
