ABOUT YOUR MASTERCLASS
Organisations operate in an increasingly VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) environment. To succeed, you need to be able to navigate through this changing environment and deliver sustained organisational benefits. Doing this takes more than just technical skills. It requires a range of behavioural skills that ensure you are ready and able to influence outcomes.
Consequently, your professional toolkit must extend beyond traditional technical and management requirements to include an understanding of how to navigate this complexity and best influence those around you to make progress.
WHY YOU NEED THIS MASTERCLASS:
In order to remain successful in this ever-changing environment, you need to be able to step up to this challenge by:
- Understanding self – your mindset, decision bias and the behaviour that can be holding you back
- Understanding others – their mindset, agenda and needs so you can adapt your approach and style to influence outcomes
- Understanding the system – know the context, power structures and organisational dynamics so you can best position ideas, communicate successfully, negotiate outcomes and secure results
DO YOU FIND
- You spend time justifying your role and the value you offer?
- You sometimes struggle to navigate and deal with organisational politics?
- It hard to build collaborative networks, and so your ideas and messages go unheard?
- Negotiating outcomes and securing agreement with senior stakeholders challenging?
If you want to grow your career, your professional toolkit must extend beyond traditional technical and management requirements to include an ability to navigate complex environments and effectively engage and collaborate with colleagues, team members and stakeholders at all hierarchical levels.

Welcome to ‘Thriving by Design‘
Led by: Dr Jenny Brockis
This full-day masterclass will be held on Tuesday 19 November in Brisbane, Friday 22 November in Melbourne and Tuesday 26 November in Sydney
ABOUT YOUR MASTERCLASS
In times of increased stress and work-related pressure, knowing how to thrive is essential to our level of happiness, resilience, camaraderie and capability. Becoming a smarter, sharper thinker and knowing how to avoid burnout or exhaustion is a must.
Choosing to invest in yourself is a powerful strategy to develop the skillsets required to adapt and flourish in the digital age. This is what provides the cognitive advantage for higher productivity and performance. This high-level masterclass will show you how to shift your mindset from survival to thrival, promoting shared values, positive emotion and purpose.
THE SCIENCE HAS SHOWN
- That building better brain health is the pre-requisite to better thinking
- That productivity, happiness and performance can readily, inexpensively and easily be boosted by understanding what really motivates us to want to deliver our best.
- That mindset is a choice and can be changed to nurture an open and growth-oriented mind and adopt a mindful approach
- Why having a sense of purpose and meaning elevates adaptability and resilience.
WHY DO WE SEEK TO THRIVE
Because it’s that feeling of being alert and calm, content and excited all rolled into one. It’s about being adaptive, responsive, happy and connected. It’s sheer bliss.
WHAT’S THE PROBLEM
Because despite the best of intentions and knowing you’re good at your job, (in fact you know you’re awesome at what you do), it can feel tough some days to feel human.
If you’re constantly treading water just to keep up with everything, exhausted from working hard to skilfully negotiate your way through the myriad of distractions and keep your executives happy, it’s time to quit ‘just getting by” and step up to sustainable, effective and enjoyable high performance.
This is about reconnecting with what matters the most for your happiness and wellbeing, and it’s more than just taking an additional yoga class or having a healthy lunch.
IN THIS MASTERCLASS, YOU WILL LEARN
- Why toughening up and building resilience is only part of the story
- Why busy is the enemy to effectiveness and how to avoid busy brain syndrome
- The Six Elements needed to fully T.H.R.I.V.E
