CSI Seminar: ‘Moving our Mental Roadblocks’
December 15, 2023 @ 14:00 – 14:30 CET
We are excited to host a new Coaching in Science Initiative (CSI) Seminar titled: ‘Moving our Mental Roadblocks’
In this CSI seminar, we will raise awareness about mental obstacles and barriers that keep us from the change we want. We will explore Why sustainable change has yet to happen for us, How we can change that, and What tools we can use to make it happen!
This seminar will be helpful for when we want to make changes in our life, and yet they don’t happen, e.g., New Year’s resolutions we keep promising ourselves. Starting on that thing, which we have procrastinated for quite some time. Beginning on a project task early instead of at the last minute. Forming healthy new habits, such as flossing our teeth or a 30 min walk every day. When we mean to plan rest into our schedule to reduce the stress in our lives, but – it just does not happen.
With our Moving Mental Roadblocks Model, we will explore why the change we want has yet to happen, and introduce our mental tool, the Emotion-Thought-Action (ETA) ladder, which can be used to enact sustainable change effectively.
Time: 14:00 – 14:30
Zoom link: https://kth-se.zoom.us/j/69311596145
On-site location: Gamma 2 lunch room
We will begin with a ~ 20 min talk, held in Solna and over zoom. Then proceed with a reflection and discussion held only on-site. We encourage other sites to form watch parties, by listening in together to the talk and then hold their own discussion afterwards. Hopefully seeding many local chapters of CSI.
To help facilitate discussion and reflection, consider the follow starter questions:
Awareness: where do we experience mental roadblocks in our lives?
Analysis: how well do I currently handle mental roadblocks?
Alternative: how can we relate to mental roadblocks, in ourselves and others?
Action: how will knowledge of mental roadblocks change my decisions going forward?
Please forward this to friends and colleagues!
