Draw out your gremlin – break free of limiting beliefs and self-judgements – coaching workshop for international students

Check the next event organised by the Welcome Point!

Occasional self-sabotage is common, but when it becomes a pattern, it can interfere with your productivity and happiness.

Tell-tale signs of self-sabotage are ignoring the positive,  creating one’s own storage of limiting beliefs and self-judgments, acting out of fear, and focusing on the past. Knowing one’s sabotage patterns helps to be more aware and create a strategy to counter-act.

It is especially useful, when working under stress and being measured according to achievements, but the self-sabotage can create troubles also in private life preventing one to live to the fullest one’s talents and potential.

In result one learns: to identify and get aware of own self-saboteurs, learn the tools and create personalised strategies how to counter-act, learn a practical model to be used in particular cases when one get’s stuck with self-sabotage.

The course includes:

  • Presentation of most common patterns of self-sabotage: creating a ‘storage of limiting beliefs’ – ignoring the positive and focusing on negative – allowing fear to take over and guide one’s thoughts and actions – focusing on the past – comparing with others – settling for less to be “on the safe side” – mastering procrastination.
  • Exercises and tools to find one’s self-sabotage patterns
  • Strategies to overming your weakness, creating one’s own strategy and new thinking habits, boosting one’s strengths
  • Exercise: Learning “force-field analysis” and “ants model” to deal with your self-sabotage and inner critic
  • Staying accountable to yourself and some more tips and tricks!
