Therapy at work is a crash course in therapy for aspiring and early career managers. The current landscape of management advice and research is insufficient given all the challenges employees, especially those working in rapidly changing industries face on a day to day basis. From information overload, to the ballooning costs of education, housing, and childcare, personal challenges creep into our time at work, whether we like it or not.

In this course, I will teach you how therapists guide patients towards a desired state by helping them see through cognitive distortions and limiting beliefs, helping them reframe their thoughts and develop more helpful ways of thinking. We will examine how therapists motivate their patients to change, and how we can translate these techniques from therapy to help you improve the performance of your team members. Finally, we'll discuss best practices from therapy can help you create a more inclusive and supportive work environment.

Who this course is for:

  • Aspiring Managers
  • New Managers
  • Managers of Growing Teams
  • Employees at Early-Stage Ventures
  • Managers of Millenials/GenZ
  • Leaders Dissatisfied With Their Team's Performance
