The four pillars of stress management

This enlightening talk goes way beyond the basic work-life balance and self-care advice you’ve heard before, giving participants four new ways to think about stress management – that don’t require any extra time (in fact, once you apply these principles, you’ll end up with more time in your day, not less!).

WHY matters: Using intent to increase motivation and productivity

This workshop takes a deeper look at one key aspect of effective stress management – being able to identify what matters to you in life, and how to bring that to life in your work. Participants will be guided through a few different ideas and exercises for identifying their why, as well as learn practical strategies for using that Why to increase their motivation and productivity while at work.

Dealing with difficult people

This workshop helps alleviate the biggest cause of staff stress: interpersonal interactions. Using two of the core principles of stress management, Lana shows participants how to apply these principles to interpersonal interactions, as well as sharing specific scripts to assist in effective, non-confrontational communication.

Use WHY to attract ideal clients AND improve staff retention (management)

Perfect for management or those with small businesses, this illuminating learning session helps business leaders identify the why of their business, gives practical tips and suggestions for weaving that why into everything they do, and how to use that WHY to attract and retain ideal clients and staff into the business. Increase your own satisfaction with your work at the same time you build revenue and staff loyalty.


Effective goal setting

Learn the ten key motivational strategies and how to apply them to a work goal you want to achieve.  Includes take home ‘cheat-sheet’ of all the motivational strategies, a walk through of the SLIP goal setting method with completed examples, and editable template for effective goal setting to allow participants to re-use the information independently on all future goals following the workshop.

Walk away with all the knowledge, tools you need, as well as your own completed blueprint for success for a current goal, by the end of this 2 hour workshop. This workshop provides time for individual questions and workshopping of ideas to ensure the absolute best plan for success is created.

Avoiding burnout

If you work in health, have staff who do a large amount of customer interaction, or work in another high pressure industry, then your staff are at an increased risk of burnout and exhaustion – and associated losses in productivity, motivation and staff satisfaction. This is an in-depth training covering understanding the stress response, identifying early warning signs in self and others, and prevention and management strategies for burnout.

This is an experiential workshop with a focus on consolidating key learnings through practical exercises during the workshop.

Positive psychology at work

Positive psychology aims to build resilience, self-esteem and satisfaction with your life. In this workshop, we’ll explore: the importance of mindset and how you talk to yourself as key to building resilience and self esteem at work, how practices such as self-care and gratitude can influence your job and life satisfaction, discovering your values, using your values to increase job satisfaction, and how to use mindfulness techniques to decrease stress levels at work.

This is an experiential workshop with a focus on consolidating key learnings through practical exercises during the workshop.

I engaged Lana to speak at a local meeting for an Australia-wide professional services member organisation. The feedback was wonderful, with multiple attendees reporting that they thoroughly enjoyed Lana’s presentation style and content, and gained a lot personally from the evening. Lana gave the group a much needed boost. I highly recommend Lana as a corporate speaker!

Legal Assistant

Lana was a fantastic presenter at our recent development training. She provided us with strategies to ensure we remain present and mindful in the workplace, strategies that are sure to help us find balance in ourselves.

Lana is able to provide great insight into how mindfulness can impact all areas of your life, not just reducing stress at work. Many of us have begun working in earnest to achieve the goals we set ourselves in the workshop portion of the development session.

Thank you for teaching us valuable methods for staying present and accountable to ourselves.

Lana helped bring back the purpose (of) why I am working – she also supported some ways that I can change my lifestyle to respect what is important.

Very intelligent and full of life,  Lana has a new insight into work/life balance. She presents very well and I aim to use her material in my daily life.
