Learning confidence for resilience: A three-week course with Ian Robertson
1: The science of confidence
What are the effects of confidence on wellbeing and on your personal and professional successes? How does it work in your mind and brain, and how can it be sabotaged by stereotypes of gender, race, class, physical appearance, age or disability?
2: Learning to be confident, part one
Learn about the 10 A’s – attention, action, adversity, attitude to self, attitude to failure, aspiration, asking for reassurance, affirmation of values, addressing saboteurs, and anxiety – in this session we will cover the first five.
3: Learning to be confident, part two
In this session we will cover the last five ‘A’s – aspiration, asking for reassurance, affirmation of values, addressing saboteurs and anxiety.
