On March 3rd 2016 the Australia and New Zealand Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network together with the Leadership Lab of the University of Adelaide invite you to the next workshop with Adelaide Business School’s esteemed Prof. Petrina Coventry.
Sleep, Laugh and Breathe – this is the message of the event for Mad March, when we'll explore how to stay sane and healthy at work by keeping control of our cortisol. Cortisol is the stress hormone and high levels can have a serious impact on our well-being. The potential damage to our hearts, immune systems, blood pressure, and emotional well-being are real and significant. Most people in the workplace are under pressure - perhaps due to deadlines or performance expectations or excessive workloads - and these stresses have a detrimental effect on us. Learning how to balance and control our cortisol levels is key to a healthier and happier professional life.

On Febrauray 4th 2016 the Australia and New Zealand Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network together with the Leadership Lab of the University of Adelaide invite you to the first workshop of this year titled: "Insight, Intuition and Advanced Knowledge: Innovation in the Workplace"
New ideas, dreams, ambitions and resolutions come into the minds of many of us as we begin each New Year so this is a great topic to start our discussions for 2016.
It feels empowering to have insights and be excited about new ideas which can overcome professional challenges. Professional inspirations and initiatives often come to us at this time because for many the New Year symbolises both new beginnings and opportunity for change. The question is, how can we cultivate this way of thinking at work so it becomes a continual reflective practice?
In February we’ll contemplate and discuss the what, how and why of inspiration, insight and intuition and how it contributes to advanced knowledge and well-being in the workplace. We’ll consider how people think about alternatives, what sparks them conceive new ideas and be motivated to share them.
This event marked the first Humanistic Management Conference taking place in Brazil.
