From a young age, it would be something I would have on the School Timetable.
It may not be a subject that comes easily to mind till you need to be it – Resilient.
However, when you do, it is vital you can access the sometimes life-saving skills
Life saving from a point of view of coming through challenges whole and safe.
Life saving in that you can become preventative and avoid the pitfalls.

Most companies need their staff to be resilient. Especially staff dealing with other people.
So bring it up on your priority scale.
It’s a provision of Training with Anne, who enjoys seeing you explore and gain new skills.

Popeye’s myth. Spinach does NOT give you iron!

May 10, 2015   //   by Anne Russell   //   Tip of the Week  //  No Comments

Sorry folks, Popeye was eating spinach for it’s beta carotene maybe, but not for it’s
iron content. Because. Spinach also contains high levels of oxalic acid which blocks
absorption of iron. Great for sufferers then of haemochromatosis that needs little iron
in the diet.

Our schools are struggling with stressed out teachers….

Feb 22, 2015   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Life Coaching, Nu U Program  //  No Comments

I have worked now with Primary, Junior and Senior school staff regarding high levels of sickness due to high levels of Stress. That dreaded word in Education. Ofsted and Stress. Those two dreaded, linked words.

Recently worked with a Primary school, teachers and assistants, to bring a calmer sense of management of the large work load, the pressures they face and handle, without any recourse to HOW. This is what is missing in our Education system, I think. What are called new initiatives are constantly being brought along for the Staff to absorb and deliver. Extra pressures.

What is NOT brought in alongside all of this is the way of how to deal with it, how to deal with the new thinking, the new demands, the effect it has on staff not managing the increase in work load, simply because there is so much of it, the demoralisation of Self in the criticism they suffer under unrealistic expectations of them. Gradually it takes it toll, constantly they are adjusting and becoming used to the pressure. They don’t notice that till a crisis appears perhaps, or there is lots of sickness amongst the Staff.

This is where an insightful Head Teacher or Deputy can put into place the type of Workshop that Coaching NorthWest delivers, Stress Management, and the recent one was no exception. The Staff are genuinely doing their very best, a great group of people.

The feedback said they were pleased with the information, the usefulness of it, the motivational influence and content. Cheers to this school for giving me the opportunity to give them skills, techniques, and thought processes to support them through a challenging time.

I am certainly passionate about my work and what I can do to improve people’s lives. I am sure this hard working, deep thinking group of people felt that, and will put this info, delivered over a few sessions to good use, and not only feel more in control of their way forward at work,  but be happier, calmer people to boot. They deserve that.
