It’s All About Me with Doc List
We’re please to announce our next AWA meetup in NYC, with Doc List. If you’re in NYC this February 28th then please come along to this impactful session all about self care in the workplace.
ABOUT THIS SESSION:
You live in a world with people. Lots of people. Each of them behaves in various ways, and those behaviors affect you. You feel angry or hurt or joyful or frustrated. Sometimes you behave in ways that affect other people. In each case you have a choice – yes a choice – about how you will feel and behave.
In this session you learn some techniques for understanding, communicating, and feeling more comfortable and at ease in situations that might be stressful.
Doc combines his education (psychology), personal experience (team member, manager, executive, personal and business coach, agile coach), tools and techniques from “Crucial Conversations”, and specific lessons from “The Anatomy of Peace” by The Arbinger Institute.
He has led variations of this session a number of times and continues to refine it. It’s a fun session that helps participants begin to understand their own behaviors and to own their own feelings.
- Explain specific strategies for dealing with stressful situations
- Demonstrate techniques for effective communication in stressful situations
- Explain the Collusion Diagram

I work at AWA HQ looking after day-to-day operations, speaking with people, organising events and training, and thinking up the next cool thing we can do. Outside of work I’m probably in one of 3 places – at F45, on the mat practising yoga, or out in the countryside with my husband walking our whippet, Luna.
