We are delighted to join with colleagues at Cambridge Performance www.cambridgeperformance.co.uk for a highly interactive training day exploring wellbeing for you or your team. Working alongside GP, Dr Rachel Morris, Mindfulness teacher, Elinor Brown and exercise and nutrition personal trainer Emma Tytherleigh, this performance-enhancing day will enable you to look at your own responses to stress and how to manage them. Using a motivational skills approach to behaviour change, we will look at what gets in the way to help you perform at your best and as a result, improve your own performance at work.
The day takes place in the light, comfortable surroundings of Wolfson Court (Girton College), off Clarkson Road. Parking is available on site. There will be an optional session of physical exercise during the day, so bring your trainers and wear (or bring) comfortable clothes with you.
