Workshop 02

Using self-governance to overcome the fear of failure in an uncertain world

Destructive and ineffective behaviours sometimes occur when changes in the world or in our personal environment trigger powerful feelings. In these times of uncertainty, students and staff need to manage the energy of emotions like fear and channel it in a constructive direction. This involves dealing with the ambiguity that is part of a diverse environment and remaining flexible and adaptable in the face of change, and it means taking charge of the mental self-talk that goes on when we encounter challenging differences. This workshop will explore how students can enjoy increased effectiveness in their studies and their intercultural experience by understanding and managing their emotional responses.
