LURN Virtual Café – Mental Fitness Muscle Building

“Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.” – Malcolm Gladwell, Author, Thought Leader

Throughout this past year topics such burn-out, resilience and emotional intelligence have been  grabbing the headlines and have been elevated to the top tier of the HR and leadership agenda as  people and businesses continue to adapt to and cope with new working, organisational and social  operating practices. 

With many people feeling like they’ve been plunged into survival mode, it’s little wonder to see  organisations respond by rolling out or reinforcing EAP and wellness strategies including programmes on mindfulness, meditation and emotional intelligence. However, in many instances,  fundamental and sustainable change has failed to take hold. 

Mental Fitness is a critical factor to success in a fast changing, complex world 

Mental Fitness, a key driver of personal effectiveness, relates to our capacity to respond to life’s  challenges with a positive rather than negative mindset. Building mental fitness supports wellness,  performance and healthy relationships by working on and building three core mental muscles: 

– Interceptor (relating to self-limiting and self-sabotaging thoughts) 

– Sage (relating to perspective and mindset) 

– Self-command (relating to the capability to direct one’s mind) 

Just like going to the gym or for a bike ride, the building of mental muscles is a practice that, with  intentional focus, can be developed and grown. 

LURN is progressively introducing mental fitness to our coaching approach throughout 2021. Mental  Fitness offers a language to better understand self-limiting and self-sabotaging thoughts &  behaviours and provides an operating system to shift from self-limitation to self-actualisation and  from surviving to thriving.
