empowering female leaders to thrive

Are you ready to finally be on top of your inner game?  Would you like 2021 to be your year?  How can you have a positive impact on your team if you’re too busy to even look after yourself?

If you are ready to Build Your Resilience and Improve Your Impact as a Leader – you are ready for this proven 6 month program delivered by self-care expert and Chartered Psychologist Niamh Hannan.

Commit just 1 day a month to yourself to Transform Your Leadership Potential while finding balance and wellbeing – even if (especially if!) you don’t think you have the time or energy.

If you’re done with the struggles, stress and overwhelm that stops you being the leader you were meant to be…

Then its time to start LOOKING AFTER THE LEADERS

“To say this has made a massive difference in my life would be an understatement.”
“This was the best decision I made in 2020….LATL is a must for any female leaders out there struggling in any way”
“I would recommend LATL (Looking After the Leaders) to anyone I know”
“I feel healthier, stronger and have regained some resilience….I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Niamh’s Looking After the Leaders programme”

Demands on female leaders are higher than ever.

Now more than ever you need to be resilient, decisive, compassionate and emotionally intelligent – firing on all cylinders, wearing many different hats and still present and tuned-in to support your team through these times of constant change and disruption.

The pressure is on, and has been on for so long now it feels exhausting. If you’re like most of my clients before they start working with me, then you probably feel overwhelmed. The vaccine gives us hope, but there’s still a long way to go. You know there’s got to be a better way, right?

The thing is, if you don’t take time to fill your own tank, you will have nothing to give. You cannot afford that to happen. Burnout is on the increase; if you want to prevent illness and exhaustion you must find a way to look after yourself and stay well. Leadership can be isolating. In times like this we all need support.

That’s why I’ve developed Looking After the Leaders, a program to support your wellbeing and leadership development through the pandemic and beyond.

 

Does this sound familiar?

 

You like to be on top of your game – but the game keeps changing, so you’re feeling the pressure.  You’re motivated, always pushing forward, you love to learn and grow both personally and professionally. You believe in constantly evolving. You give so much to your team, you look out for them, you care; which means that sometimes you’re spread too thinly and there’s not much left for you. You’re not afraid of hard work – you must be pretty resilient to have come this far – but you know there are some pieces still holding you back from being at your best.

Being a woman in leadership can be a lonely place, with tough choices, always having to prioritise what you allocate your time to; and very often work seems to win at the cost of your personal life. You’d love to have a better balance, not to feel so guilty in relation to family/kids, and just to have more time for yourself. You tend to be hard on yourself, push yourself, but sometimes you don’t know how to be kind to yourself and just listen to what you really need.

You’d love to have some space to reflect, to build awareness, to grow into the potential of who you really are as a leader. The opportunity to build your tolerance for stress so that you feel stronger, more resilient, better able to cope with all that work and life throws at you (2020 being an excellent example of the surprises life can bring!) You want to get better at looking after your health and wellbeing, because you want to be in the best possible state to influence and create a thriving team and workforce.

You don’t want to do ‘yet another course’ – you want anything you invest your time into to make a lasting real impact.

Proven strategies – Real Life Results

See what participants are saying about this transformational program:

“To say this has made a massive difference in my life would be an understatement. Looking after the Leaders has benefited me both professionally and personally.”

This year really placed my role at the centre of the Organisation and it was challenging from every aspect. The mental health of the Organisation, pivoting to a remote culture, changing our business model and changes due to the impact of Covid all took their toll. I spent the majority of 2020 looking after the stakeholders and customers of my role but never taking time for myself. I felt stressed and under pressure but almost unknown to me but I am sure was apparent throughout the business.

A member of my team had found Niamh through a webinar she attended and spoke to our CFO to arrange my participation. When I received all of the information, I was a little skeptical. How was I going to commit my time? What would be the benefits from it and working remotely was hard enough without having to participate in something I didn’t think I was ready for – timewise, emotionally or even mentally. To say this has made a massive difference in my life would be an understatement. Looking after the Leaders has benefited me both professionally and personally. The coaching group is supportive, enabling and a place where honesty is a real currency. 

I have already noticed my tolerance for stress has increased, my resilience and self worth is evident but more than that, I am working toward goals and objectives both professionally and personally which before this course wouldn’t have even featured on my radar. Taking time out to attend LATL has enabled me to be a better strategic resource in the Organisation by learning how to look after myself. It has also given me an awareness of the pressures present in life and work and how to create solid coping mechanisms to respond effectively. Niamh is exceptional as a Coach and facilitates an enlightening engagement. If you’re reading this you already know there is a need there, without hesitation I can recommend LATL, it will give you back your sense of purpose and value

“I would recommend LATL to anyone I know”

“Leading – with or without authority – has never been an easy job, but I suppose 2020 made it particularly hard for leaders to take care both of themselves and their teams. If you add to that the working from home situation for so many of us, i.e. adding dealing with kids, potential elderly family members etc. to the mix, it’s no wonder so many of us have been feeling overwhelmed at times. In such times, it is so easy to forget to take care of yourself, which, like putting the oxygen mask first on ourselves in a plane emergency situation, should be the first thing we actually do.

With plenty on my plate and little opportunity to recharge my batteries this year, I did not want to end up being the last one having her oxygen mask on, so I joined LATL to be reminded of the useful tools and techniques one can apply for that, and also to benefit from Niamh’s expertise in that area. I did not hesitate one second when I heard about the programme as I know from attending other programmes with Niamh how valuable her insights and expertise are.

I would recommend LATL to anyone I know, no matter what state of mind they are in, but especially to someone who is struggling, feeling overwhelmed, and need the attention and the care they don’t manage to give to themselves.

Attending the programme has helped me focus on myself in a way that I would have otherwise neglected to do and it has helped me to feel strong in my role as a co-worker, leader, parent, etc. despite the challenges life has recently thrown at me.

“This was the best decision I made in 2020”

“This year I started my first leadership role and with the step up from individual contributor came stresses I was not necessarily prepared for. I was feeling overwhelmed and had lost the balance between personal and professional life and had also started to doubt my ability.

After working with Niamh 1:1 for coaching and gaining so much learning and growth I decided to sign up for LATL. I can now say that this was the best decision I made in 2020.

From the moment the course started I felt safe in the amazing space Niamh created. Throughout the course I have really learnt to look after myself and I have seen what that means to my performance and overall well being. I have found balance, support and I am now more driven than ever to grow and learn. The awareness I have gained will stay with me for life and set me up for success both personally and professionally. 

LATL is a must for any female leaders out there struggling in any way. It has helped me to make significant change that I am confident will be lasting. It has also been wonderful to be part of such a supportive group of women that I am inspired by and proud of. I feel a new sense of balance and I am thankful for that gift.”

“I feel healthier, stronger and have regained some resilience….I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Niamh's Looking After the Leaders programme”

“Before joining Niamh’s Looking After the Leaders programme, I had reached a stage of burn-out, trying to do the best for our organisation and our people through uncharted territory.  Somewhere in that I had set myself aside, becoming very unwell with an auto-immune condition and exhaustion – but keeping on keeping on!  This impacted on my energy levels, concentration and, crucially, my decision-making capacity.  I was drawn to a mindfulness webinar Niamh was running, publicised on LinkedIn, and through this became aware that she was commencing a new programme for leaders.  I applied to join, and was encouraged by Niamh’s supportive pre-programme contact.

The small-group approach, in Niamh’s expert care, quickly establishes trust and safely holds the struggles and successes of everyone, with equal time afforded to all.  Niamh has built the programme around a blend of theory (in areas such as Positive Psychology and motivation), experiential learning and practical coaching through goal-setting and visualisation.  There is encouragement to consider this in the context of our work teams, as well as in our own lives. 

The question of “What do I need right now?” expands into a toolkit of positive daily practices for long-term wellbeing, which due to the blend of approaches I find I draw on regularly.  The focus is on small, achievable wins, with accountability through mid-month coaching calls and accountability partners within the group.

My workload has not decreased – but tuning into my own “What do I need right now?” is becoming a regular practice.  I have found time and motivation to take breaks, do a short daily yoga or Pilates session (inspired by something Niamh had arranged for us on one of our coaching days) and have become more aware of challenges which hinder my own progress and authenticity.  In other words, the programme is helping me to get out of my own way!  I feel healthier, stronger and have regained some resilience.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Niamh’s Looking After the Leaders programme – there are no right or wrong answers here, simply a safe and nurturing space to help set goals, regain your mojo, or to help others to do the same.”

Ok, so what is the investment?

‘Looking After the Leaders’ may not be cheap, but how do you put a price on your health, your wellbeing, your peace of mind, aswell as those of your teams?

It’s a small investment in yourself that pays huge dividends in your future.

One that will pay you back for years to come, as you progress as a Leader with less stress and greater confidence, creating a positive impact on your teams.

It’s a transformation that will free you from stress and overwhelm, and support you to thrive.

And when you weigh all that against the investment and what it will do for you and for your future, then it’s an easy choice.

I’ve helped 100’s of people just like you.

The beauty of enrolling as part of a small group is that you get lots of individual attention but at a fraction of the cost. If you were to cover the same number of hours coaching 1to1 with me, the investment would be closer to €12,000.

Until I developed this course, if you wanted to work with me for a full day, it would have had to be organized through your company, you couldn’t access me directly.  I wanted to make this transformational material available to motivated individuals like you, so you can get the support and training you need to be at your best even through the toughest of times. When you are supported to be at your best, you feel great, but importantly – everyone around you benefits – your family, your team, your colleagues…

It’s for this reason that I want to make sure I get to work with as many committed conscious women as possible so I can help you to get going to make a real impact as a leader.

Emotional Intelligence Assessment EQi2.0 (pre-course)

Emotional Intelligence (EI) can be defined as a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way. The EQ-i 2.0 is a scientifically-validated psychometric assessment which measures emotional intelligence (EI) and how it can impact people and the workplace.

EQi2.0 Leadership Report

the Leadership Report gives you feedback on your scores on 15 areas of Emotional Intelligence and hones in on leadership development, executive development and coaching, and developing high potential leaders. The report also contains insights on the possible implications of results, and which skills have the highest potential of becoming leadership derailers. Strategies for development will be provided with the aim to attain true leadership potential, while being able to compare results against top leaders as a benchmark.

1-1 Session: EQ Feedback

An in-depth coaching session empowering you to make sense of your report, understand the links between the 15 subscales, and identify where you want to focus your development and set goals.

The Choice

So Now its time for you to make one of two choices….

#1: Do Nothing

The first choice is the choice to do nothing. And as you already know, if you choose nothing…then nothing changes.

#2: Choose Transformation

But, if you already know that you want to feel better, stronger, more resilient, be better able to tolerate stress and cope with all that gets thrown at you as a leader, then your choice is obvious:

join us in Looking After the Leaders and start your transformation to being the resilient, emotionally aware, capable, confident and successful leader you know you were meant to be.

Contact Niamh directly at niamh@mindworks.ie

But Hurry!

the registration period won’t be open forever…

The opportunity to be part of ‘Looking After the Leaders’ only comes up twice a year because of the time Niamh personally invests in facilitating this program. This is not like other online programs where you watch videos or get to ask questions to someone’s assistant. This is run live, facilitated live, where you get to dig into over 20 years of Niamh’s knowledge and experience directly. And only a small number of women like yourself will be accepted onto the program, so this is an exclusive opportunity to be part of this supportive community of like-minded female leaders.

You’ll miss out on the chance to transform yourself, your work and your life.

You CAN do it. With the right mindset, with the right tools and with the right support you can transform your life and the lives of those you lead. And I’m here to support you for the next six months, for maximum positive impact.

So don’t waste another year wishing things could be better.

Join me now and be the change you want to see in your life.

 

Who Is Niamh Hannan?

I have been working as a Psychologist for over 20 years and have been in many different offices in many different industries. In my work as a coach and as a facilitator, I have seen firsthand the struggles women, in particular, face in leadership today. I cannot just sit back and watch people work themselves into illness and exhaustion.

Having been involved in the wellbeing arena since 2004, I have worked alongside many Wellness providers over the years. I feel strongly that leaders need additional support to what is available for employees. A team can thrive or alternatively, not survive, depending on their leader. Engagement levels, wellbeing, mood, performance, effectiveness of the team – all are affected by the leader’s state. How can we expect our workforce to feel supported during stressful times, how can we keep performance high and keep spirits high, how can we lead teams who thrive, if we don’t look after our leaders?

Looking after our leaders is my passion and I am looking forward to helping you develop personally and professionally to become a more fulfilled and effective leader.

I’m Ready

Program FAQ

1. What is going to happen on those full days online?

I am very aware that a full day online is taxing, and you certainly can’t listen to me all day 🙂 The full days will be very interactive with regular breaks. Self-care is a strong focus of this course so the day will be set up to support you in your wellbeing, including having time for fresh air and lunch, stretch breaks, etc. The platform I will be using is Zoom, so there will be lots of use of the breakout rooms in pairs and small groups. It is important that the group are given the opportunity to gel and get to know each other, to feel safe and secure, to learn from each other, and just to have fun too! I have run other full-day courses online and engagement has been really good with positive feedback. The time will fly!

2. What will we cover?

Each month will have a different theme, and then we will have a group coaching call half-way through the month to answer questions, keep you on track with your goals, keep in touch, offer support, etc. This whole program has been set up to meet a need that is huge at this point in time – to support leaders in their own wellbeing so that they are in a better position to support their teams. Stress management, building resilience and self-care are all components of developing emotional intelligence so I will be drawing on my knowledge and experience to empower a deeper understanding of all of these topics and bring them into practical application for you in work and in life.

 

Resilience involves behaviours, thoughts and actions that anyone can learn and develop. Like building a muscle, increasing your resilience takes time and intentionality. This program’s focus on 6 key areas

1) Increasing Positive Emotions

2) Growing Engagement

3) Building Connections and Relationships

4) Finding Purpose and Meaning

5) Recognising Accomplishments

6) Embracing Healthy Habits – can empower you to lead your life more fully whilst developing your potential as a leader.

3. What are the Content Details?

Built based on Seligman’s Resilience & Wellbeing PERMA model, the building blocks for resilience and growth; each month will have a theme as follows:

Positive Emotions – learn how to boost your mood and wellbeing by working on your emotional fitness. Gain confidence as you identify your strengths and develop your potential, then do the same for your team! Our first day together will also focus on creating safety within the group and agreeing boundaries.

Engagement – understand how to stay motivated and engaged, and how to keep your team engaged too, even when working remotely.

Relationships – the key to our long-term happiness, you’ll learn more about yourself and others so that you can build more successful and meaningful relationships and better handle those trickier work relationships

Meaning – move deeper into your purpose and gain a sense of clarity about your life and your work, and what’s important to you at a deeper level. You’ll feel more connected to yourself and what’s really important to you.

Achievement/Accomplishment – build your confidence and satisfaction, recognise limiting beliefs and break through your ceiling to achieve more than ever before!

Healthy Habits – build your resilience by taking responsibility for your health and wellbeing in all areas of your life. We will practice self-care along the entire journey.

These will be held as broad themes each month, with focus too on building self-awareness, learning new skills and tools, enhancing emotional intelligence as a leader. You will be supported to move from survive to thrive!
