The world has been turned upside down over the past few months. Wearing lounge pants and teaching in your slippers would have raised a few SLT eyebrows back in 2019. 

Fast forward to 2021 and all it has entailed… and it’s no wonder you feel demotivated.

But maybe you’re tired of feeling like that? Maybe you want to get that motivation back and head into the new academic year with positivity? And it’s not just about resisting the urge to glug down the hand sanitiser. Understanding your personal motivation for teaching also helps you feel more in control, supports performance and helps you achieve your goals, both short and long term. 

Feeling demotivated is also normal - maybe because of unattainable performance targets, conflicts with colleagues or because the goalposts around teaching in a global pandemic keep changing - thanks, Gavin. Whatever it is, by understanding a few simple techniques, you can confront these things, get clarity and feel confident in your teaching skills. 

In this 30-minute interactive session, Stephanie Davies, Founder of Laughology and Head of Happiness, and Dave Keeling, Lead Happiness Consultant, will explore:

  • Emotional awareness and the impact on oomph, so you can begin to recognise and respond to the emotions you’re experiencing
  • Intrinsic and extrinsic motivators, helping you realise what it takes to give yourself (and maybe your class) the boost you need
  • Understanding values and how this impacts motivation, so you can get clear on the values that motivate you
  • Flow, motivation and strengths, giving you techniques to help keep that positivity circulating
  •  What to do when stuck to become unstuck and flourish, helping you finally get some clarity and that all important mojo back

So if your teaching mojo has well and truly done a runner, join us for this free webinar. We can promise you wholeheartedly that you won’t hear the words ‘hand-sanitiser’, ‘catch-up funding’ or ‘Gavin Williamson’.
