Thriving with Personal Awareness – Part 1

This week saw us have our first proper module as part of Rising Talent, Thriving with Personal Awareness. Run by the lovely Simon from Different Dynamics, I’ve encountered part of the training module in part in some of MEC’s Inspirational Management training.

The training was meant to allow us to take three days to try and focus on ourselves as leaders and understanding how to improve awareness of the skills we have, and try to unlock them to inspire and lead around us.

Rising Talent Session 1: Thriving with Better Energy

Last Monday saw our first Rising Talent Session, ‘Thriving with Better Energy’. There was a definite buzz in the air amongst the class as it was our first proper session together after our initial response to brief.

MEC’s People and Culture department have been quite good in providing classes outside of Rising Talent related to ensuring that we have help in promoting a healthier work and personal life balance. I’ve attended one of the ‘Better Energy’ classes before and it was great for us to kick off the course with this.

Unlimited Trailers: Gravity

Gravity 2013 Movie PosterMy recent trip to see Man of Steel was a joyful one but one thing I always look forward to are trailers before the movie starts. I’m a real stickler for making sure I’m on time when going to the cinema specifically not to miss any of the adverts or trailers. It adds to the experience in my mind. Along with my reviews over the coming weeks, I’ll also be writing about the trailers that have caught my attention and added themselves to my list of things to watch over the coming year.
