Upeka Fernando-Future Pacing Slowing Down to Speed Up-She Mentors event-2023

Future Pacing: Slowing Down to Speed Up


About this event

Instead of leaping into 2023 with a business-as-usual approach, what if we stopped to start again? For many of us, the last few years have felt like a whirlwind of 'lost time'.

Approaching 2023, you might feel a kind of tired apprehension. Perhaps you’ll feel distracted, lacking in focus and clarity and anxious about the impending ‘rise and grind’.

So this year, after the annual festivities are over and lights come up, let's look at how we better prepare ourselves – mentally, practically and psychologically.

Join Upeka Fernando on Tuesday 31 January at 1pm AEDT for this bespoke workshop, designed to help you slow down, reflect and reframe for greater self-insight and effective action. This is your opportunity to take an honest look back and clarify your values and vision for your future self (2023 and beyond).

The session will include an Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Future-Pacing exercise to help you consolidate last year’s learnings and take them forward as growth opportunities.

We’ll discuss:

👉 Future-you planning through self-awareness and reflection
👉 Getting clear on what’s important to you and what’s holding your back
👉 Being present with where you are and where you’ve been
👉 Consolidating last year’s lessons through NLP
👉 Utilising the Stop / Start / Continue framework as a self-feedback loop
👉 Defining your goals and how to realistically achieve them
