INSIGHT strategic levers
Insight Strategic Levers consists in a series of experiential
workshops, à-la-carte, each one focusing on one strategic area of workplace effectiveness:
Planning and prioritization: How to craft an efficient plan with clear priorities at different time scales; how to manage multiple concurrent tasks avoiding the traps of multitasking and action addiction; how to handle emails and other sources of information overload.
Managing mental stress: Identifying the system-level sources of stress and how to mitigate them; learning to observe our mind and how to restructure our relationship with our own thoughts for maximum efficiency; how to recharge mental energy; how to turn potentially challenging situation into opportunities by leveraging mental reframing and mental preparation techniques.
Managing physical stress: Identifying the sources of physical strain; how to reduce physical pain and increase mobility at work; how to increase mental clarity by optimizing breathing and nutrition; how to control the stress reaction in the body by leveraging relaxation; how to improve sleep.
Interpersonal and communication skills: Recognizing and preparing for crucial conversations; how to build safety; how to uncover and explore assumptions hidden in interpersonal communication; how to give feedback; how to communicate assertively and say no when needed; how to effectively communicate via email and other digital means.
Each workshop comprises a 2-hour in person session and a 1-hour virtual session one month later as follow-up. Workshops are offered for groups of up to 12 participants. Each workshop is designed as a stand-alone training, and can be offered independently on the others. In the concise frame of 2+1 hours, each workshop provides participants the opportunity to learn and put immediately into practice compelling tactics in that domain.
Each workshop combines individual work, group work, mindfulness and reflective practices, all grounded in fundamental notions of brain and body physiology. The 2-hr session leaves participants with a clear and customized plan of action. The 1-hr follow up session a month later deepens the learning by exploring the benefits and the challenges experienced in the implementation of the plan, providing further support as needed.
