Description

Fear of rejection stifles creativity, productivity and joy. When we find ourselves not going after the clients, jobs or work we want, a fear of rejection often sits at the back of it. When we've recently experienced setbacks we can find ourselves backing away from trying anything new in case we fail again. Many people struggle to receive feedback, criticism, or have their ideas and desires rejected, without it impacting their sense of self. Over time, continued rejection without the resilience to counter it, can lead to mediocre work and poor mental health.

In this one day workshop we'll teach you how to build your resilience around rejection, allowing you to keep bringing new ideas to the table, going for what you want and innovating in your work. We’ll help you understand the sources of why rejection is so painful, what it means for you and how you develop true resilience to it.

You will leave with a resilience toolkit which will help you handle critique and rejection in all areas of your life, including your professional goals. It will teach how to to develop a growth mindset at work and change your response to feedback and failure from fear to playfulness. If you've felt stuck when it comes to expanding your client base, coming up with new ideas or growing your business, then this workshop will help you unlock your creative courage and bring your most innovative self to the forefront.


Attendees of this workshop will:

  • Create their own personal toolkit for creative courage

  • Learn how to untangle their self-worth from the success or failure of their ideas and desires

  • Let go of the need to self-censor

  • Be encouraged to think beyond their boundaries and understand the value in doing so.

  • Develop the bravery to take risks playfully.

  • Come up with creative ways to approach pitching and business development.


Outline of the day:

  1. Understanding of what rejection feels like - a group exercise to experience and work through the feelings that come up when you experience rejection.

  2. How to process rejection - working in pairs and on their own you’ll look at ways to work through any feelings or needs brought up by rejection, and come up with alternative strategies for managing this.

  3. Developing daily rejection resilience - analysis of how to categorise and work through feedback so that you can learn from it without being defined by it. A group exercise to develop individual strategies for handling negative feedback.

  4. Using creativity to boost rejection resilience - we’ll use creativity and playfulness to lower the signifiance of rejection and develop resilience to feedback. This exercise will help you go after what you truly desire without being held back by fear or doubt.

  5. Your personal formula for rejection resilience - each attendee will pull together your personal formula for rejection resilience and work with another attendee to find a way to hold each other accountable.

  6. The prize of resilience - we’ll close the workshop with a guided exercise to help you see what is possible in your professional life if you put the actions you learn in the workshop into practice.
