How does what we think impact our reality? What would happen if we altered our thinking to something more helpful? You talk more to yourself than to anyone else in the world. In the face of challenging situations the words you choose for that conversation with yourself will directly impact how quickly you are able to move forward. Neuroscience shows that our brains continue to develop and change even as adults. The brain is actually quite like plastic, and can be reshaped over time, forming new neural pathways. This has led neuroscientists to call this tendency neuroplasticity. So if what you or others around you are currently thinking is unhelpful, the session will give strategies to begin to alter that thinking.
As the recruiting manager you’re at the centre of the process, driving the process to recruit the best person to meet your job needs.

This webinar will give you an understanding of good the skills required in remote recruitment and selection. It will include advert writing, candidate attraction, using CVs in selection and the council’s new recruitment system.

These 50 minute coaching sessions with coaches will assist council staff in coming up with strategies and action plans to maintain and build their wellbeing and resilience. Unlike counselling which provides a safe space to explore worries and concerns, these confidential coaching sessions will help staff come up with individual plans to help them build their resilience, understand what they can do to enhance their wellbeing and overcome current and future obstacles. There are activities and exercises that wellbeing coaches can also give people to work through in their own time if they would find it useful.
Please note these sessions will be delivered by skype or telephone. Your coach will contact you to confirm the best method for you.
