Resource-oriented self-management:
How to make smart decisions and act successfully in a goal-oriented way

Why do we not succeed more often in making decisions in accordance with our individual personality and in achieving our goals in a self-determined, successful and sustainable way? In this respect, it is necessary to expand your decision-making scope and operational skills.

The lecture is based on the Zurich Resource Model (ZRM), an effective and scientifically proven method of self-management. The core of the model is a fun-orientated support of self-management, focused on your individual potential by

  • clarifying personal needs and motives,
  • discovering personal resources, appreciating them and using them
  • enunciating effective goals and
  • the specific preparation and performance of activities in everyday life.

Stress: Spice of life or dangerous health risk?

The biological stress program dates back to the prehistoric times of mankind. It prepares the organism to react to a dangerous situation with fight or flight, the body is programmed to move.

Nowadays, however, this evolutionary biological stress program has mostly lost its adaptive value for us. When we feel threatened, it is predominantly in performance-related or interpersonal situations, in which it is usually neither possible nor sensible to respond with a physical fight-or-flight reaction. Chronical stress is particularly problematic from a health point of view. It arises when stress continues for a long time or recurs repeatedly without phases of rest and recovery and when the energy provided in the body is not used up by movement.

The lecture will concentrate on the following topics:

  • stress – what is the actual meaning of the term?
  • the three levels of stress
  • the biological stress program and its consequences for your health
  • your stress emergency kit

Comes with a checklist for self-assessment.
