Workshop Anxiety and Peak Performance

Workshop Anxiety and Peak Performance Amsterdam Den Haag


Workshop for Everyone: Life and Career

Our Workshop is for everyone: if you want to improve yourself if you are addressing your deepest fear or if you are filling blocked at work, or if you are looking for a new perspective. Our workshop is focused on the solution of the problem of Anxiety, and consequently, to the Burnout.

Indeed, anxiety is the emotion of fear for a perceived future threats, real or unreal; and the Burnout is the developed Anxiety in some area of our life like work, family, relations, etc. Sometimes, Anxiety is crystallized in a specific fear or a particular situation in various grades, from littles fears to a great phobia.

In any of these cases, Anxiety is a negative circle of thoughts, and we entirely know its patter and the way you can learn to stop it.

It is one of the reasons why, together to private sessions, we decided to conduct Workshops. Indeed, in non-individual courses, the participant will have some advantages, as:

  • Avoid the emotional or physical loneliness that Anxiety can cause;
  • Listening to the experiences of Others, understanding better the patter of the negative circle;
  • Participate in specific Group exercises;
  • Obtain fast results working with Others;
  • Make a step out the comfort zone, starting learning how to address Anxiety.

Anxiety and daily life

Anxiety could affect daily life in a lot of way. First of All, we can consider that Anxiety, as any function of our Brain, isn’t static, it is plastic an in a continuos movement.

As a function of our brain, more we used it, more we will continue to use it, causing a hyper-stimulation of a particular Brain Area, in this case the Amygdala. Hence, in this case the function of Anxiety will be over-stimulated and its pattern will invade other areas of our normal behavior, linked itself with our self-judgment and life point of view.

The constant fear for the results, the idea that it is never enough, the continuous self judgement and the avoidance of perceived uncomfortable situations, are only some emotional symptoms of the Anxiety that could affect personal relations, daily life and expectations.

Anxiety, Anger and Frustration

One of the Anxiety response is the Anger. More we will be Anxious, and more we will be frustrated and, consequently, our Anger will blows-up.

Anxiety works very slowly, step by step, affecting our self-esteem,  freezing yourself in a social situation, during discussions and in general permitting the avoidance of our interests, or the expression of yourself.

Frustration is the consequence of this behavior: it is a weight, brings a situation to another where will become Anger against a new, and innocent, target.

In our Workshops, you will learn to manage your communication skill, going deeper avoiding both the Anger and the fear of the confrontation.

The Peak Performance

Anxiety doesn’t produce Peak Performance.

The idea that Anxiety is helpful in work is 95% wrong!

More we will be calm, and more we will be able to do a great job.

Instead, calm doesn’t mean unproductive or unfocused: it is precisely the opposite:

Calm means aware and not distracted!

To arrive at the Peak performance, our Brain needs time and an increasing focusing period: the Anxiety works in the opposite ways, reducing our attention and blocking the process increasing focusing.

Indeed, to shut down the hyper-activation of the Amygdala system, we will show to you how to train the Executive Function of your Brain, gaining in focusing, working memory, planning, solving problems: making a step forward in your personal life and career.

The Burnout

Most of us have days when we feel bored, overloaded, or unappreciated when dragging ourselves out of bed requires a lot of determination but if you feel like this most of the time, however, you may be in burnout. Because it reduces productivity and saps your energy, leaving you feeling increasingly helpless, hopeless, cynical, and resentful: hence you may feel like you have nothing more to give or to hope.

As a result, the adverse effects of burnout spill over into every area of life—including your home, work, and social life; especially relevant burnout can also cause long-term changes in your body that make you vulnerable to illnesses. ( if you want to know more take a look at our page about Burnout )

Hence, Burnout is a kind of auto-sabotage, inducing us to stop working, going out with friends, staying with our family, having fun and happy moments.

Avoiding the burnout means work on our Anxiety: during our Workshop you will learn how to recognize the pattern of the Burnout and how to prevent it, Starting again, living your life fully.
