Cognitive behavioural coaching for high performers

Event Description


2019/20 Date:

To be confirmed



Thirty years of the best research in psychology has shown that it is possible to change habits and behaviours that can get in the way of us achieving our full potential.  It is possible to change the beliefs that underpin our behaviours and consequently our successes.  Despite there being an incontrovertible evidence base for how to improve our thinking and therefore our behaviours, the skills required to do this are not readily available to those wanting to maximise their performance.  And this is certainly not available to those who work in universities.  This unique workshop will bring you the latest research and practice in cognitive behavioural coaching (CBC) and show you have to apply it to your everyday life.

This workshop is an excellent one to do if you have already attended other Hugh Kearns courses, although it will still be useful for those who are attending for the first time. Hugh has recently delivered this session at Berkley and Harvard Universities.

In this workshop you will:

  • Find out what CBC is
  • Understand the fundamental thinking errors that reduce our performance
  • Discover how we can use CBC to improve our performance
  • Develop the skills you need to use it for yourself
  • Explore other things that CBC is good for – confidence, resilience, work/life balance, good mental health and more!

Hugh Kearns lectures and researches at Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia and is recognised internationally as a public speaker, educator and researcher.  He regularly lectures at universities across the world and is currently on a lecture tour of the UK and the US which included lectures at Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Berkeley and Stanford.

His areas of expertise include self-management, positive psychology, work-life balance, learning and creativity.  He draws on over twenty five years of experience as a leading training and development professional within the corporate, financial, education and health sectors in Ireland, Scotland, North America, New Zealand and Australia.  He has coached individuals, teams and executives in a wide range of organisations in the public and private sectors.
