Did you memorise the material perfectly the evening before, but then suddenly find your head and paper blank during the exam? It happens again and again that knowledge in stressful situations can suddenly no longer be recalled. This is where we want to help. In December, we are therefore organising another workshop on exam anxiety and presentation stress.
That’s the point:
Many people feel uncomfortable and sometimes anxious in performance situations such as exams or presentations. To a certain extent, this is normal and is linked to the desire to perform well and receive positive feedback. However, above a certain level of nervousness and tension, performance can suffer (quite apart from the discomfort) and it is then often no longer possible to achieve a performance commensurate with one’s abilities. In extreme cases, when anxiety and stress are very high, performance can even collapse completely (blackout).
In the workshop you will experience and learn practically:
- How performance anxiety arises and how you can reduce it.
- What the key features of mental training are and how you can improve your mental strength in performance situations.
- Why it makes sense to decouple performance and success from self-acceptance and self-esteem and how this can be achieved.
- How you can significantly reduce stress and anxiety within a few minutes in moments of high mental stress.
