How to remain effective within a reactive environment

In our instant gratification, ever changing society, it is easy to be “responsive” and “respond” in every reactive environment. Being reactive may feel good (or bad), but it may limit your effectiveness in the longer term. “Reactive people are often affected by their physical environment. If the weather is good, they feel good. If it isn’t, it affects their attitude and performance. Proactive people carry their own weather with them.” – Stephen Covey – The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Interrupt that stress response and change from reactive to proactive. Act rather than react.

Objectives:

  1. Identify your triggers for reactivity.
  2. Evaluate your own responses.
  3. Apply steps to break the reactivity cycle.

This workshop sessions is facilitated by Dr Jeannie Trudel, Business Professor and President of CHC. This is an in person workshop.
