Learning for All - Navigating Challenging Times

Event Description






11am - 12.30pm



Delegates will explore the science and theory to understand not only why we respond like we do but how we can harness structure and control to support ourselves and each other through these challenging times. 

There has never been a more a fitting time to explore how we navigate through challenging times.  We all need to be resilient and adaptable in ways many of us have never needed to be to date.   

To support us all through these challenging times it is important to understand how and why we respond like we do and how we can best support ourselves and others successfully by harnessing structure and control. 


Learning Outcomes: 

  • Understanding what we mean by a VUCA environment, how would we have described this in late 2019 compared to 2020?   
  • Explore and understand Covey’s circle of concern, influence and control to support how we most effectively channel our energy. 
  • Understand our responses through explanation of the Change Curve, SCARF model and neuroscience. 
  • The importance of plans and structure to support mental, physical and emotional wellness.  
  • Action planning with tips for application participants will be encouraged to make personal commitments within their own context 



Aims/Aimed at


Any member of staff working remotely.


Participants will receive a concise ‘workbook document’ and some pre-work in advance of the session.  This will enable the small group to prepare, engage and actively participate in the short development session. 

This event will be delivered via a remote meeting platform, therefore participants will require a PC/Laptop or appropriate device to connect remotely via a link and access to a camera, microphone for audio and video collaboration.
