How is your September going? Are you feeling a positive shift in energy with things starting to move forwards in your life? Or are you feeling stuck or stressed? Maybe a mix of both?!
Well for those of you feeling a bit stressed, stuck, or a bit unnerved by an undercurrent of change in your life, I have THE perfect podcast for you!
I had a great chat with Sue Evans from Fast-Pathways about how we can use stress to motivate us into effective action. She is an expert in changing mindsets and behaviours and has a clear understanding of why we don’t always do what’s good for us, even when we recognise that what we’re doing isn’t working.
Sue spent the first half of her career delivering Operational Excellence and culture change for international organisations. Highlights included leading a programme which more than doubled site productivity, and delivering £1.9M waste reduction in under 5 months. Leading these kind of changes, she experienced a fair amount of stress! She is currently using her vast experience of implementing successful change programmes to help organisations to develop effective wellbeing strategies. Sue designed the FAST Pathways trainings and resources to embed the skills to resolve and prevent the common forms of mental ill-health, and highlights some of the challenges of looking at mental health in the workplace.
I highly recommend watching the podcast and downloading Sue’s brilliant Problem Solvers Guide To Keeping Stress Useful Guide where she shares invaluable advice along with some practices to get going with. You can find the link to this guide on the YouTube page.
