Agenda

Stoicism is a superpower!

Submitted by Ceri Newton

Talk Abstract:

Let's talk about stress, baby! Our monkey mind affects our judgement, decision-making, our reliance on habits and our creativity in problem-solving - and it's all made significantly worse by cortisol, the body's stress hormone.

So, we'll delve into the origins of Stoicism, and talk about how its teachings can be applied to modern lives to reduce the effects of stress when we're working and interacting. You'll come away with deployable methods to identify and deal with your stressful events, using them to your advantage instead of enduring them holding you back.
