Audiobook: Dealing with Angry People

Mindcool

In cart Not available Out of stock

Dealing with angry people description This audiobook will equip you with proven techniques to successfully communicate with angry people and protect yourself from violence Have you ever been angry? I’m sure you have. How did it feel? What caused it? Did you lash out physically at furniture or people or just fume quietly? Have you ever experienced an angry customer, or patient, or family member and been at a loss as to how to calm things down? Upon reflection have you maybe sometimes escalated the anger in the other person by arguing or speaking over or interrupting their angry rant? Have you ever seen someone reach a point where they do kick furniture about or even raise a hand to strike you? This audiobook is designed to give you an understanding of what anger is and when encountered in someone else what to do and what not to do to calm things down and reach a more rational way forward.

Psychologists recognise three types of anger: 1. There is hasty and sudden anger often connected to the impulse for self-preservation. It is shared by human and other animals, and it occurs when the animal, the person, is tormented or trapped. 2. Then there is the more common settled and deliberate anger possibly a reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment by others.
3. And finally, dispositional anger often related more to character traits than to instincts or cognitions. Irritability, sullenness and churlishness are examples of this In this audiobook we will be focusing mostly on type 2 where the anger is settled and deliberate, possibly a reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment. Of course you may encounter all three types. Some examples of the type 2 kind of anger might include a customer, who is complaining about the standard of the product they have purchased, or the householder who is angry at the engineer who is trying to get their electricity supply back on, or their heating repaired on a cold winter’s day. Whether they are right or wrong, their perception is that you or your organisation is to blame and they will vent their anger and hopefully not their violence, on you. You might work in a shop, or a bank, or you might be a social worker visiting your clients at their homes? You might be a nurse or Doctor dealing with unruly patients in Emergency on a Saturday night, or a police officer for whom the angry person is a frequent occurrence. Whatever your role in life you are going to encounter an angry person at some point. Be prepared.

Audiobook: Surviving Redundancy

Mindcool

In cart Not available Out of stock

Losing our job is something we all fear and it can certainly impact on our confidence and self-esteem.

But, being made redundant need not be the calamity it first appears to be. With the right attitude you can bounce back and turn it into an opportunity for finding a job you're really passionate about.

But remember it is jobs or roles that are made redundant – not people. You can only become redundant if you see yourself as that job role. You may find yourself out of work for a while, but that does not have to mean the end of your working life.

The way forward is to hold on to who you truly are and your true purpose in life. Then seek to re-invent yourself and bounce back. Believe that this is merely a transition in your working life – not the end.

Audiobook: Job Interviews Confidence when it matters most

Mindcool

In cart Not available Out of stock

By Dr Denis McBrinn It’s only natural to feel nervous during a job interview, but part of performing well is not letting your anxiety show. This audio single will bring advice and practical techniques to help you to do your best when it matters most.

This audio single contains two major sections: Job Interviews: Confidence when it matters most, and Confidence at Work. First Job Interviews: It’s only natural to feel nervous during a job interview, but part of performing well is not letting your anxiety show. Your goal is to make a good impression from the start, which means appearing confident to those evaluating you. If you show a lack of confidence, you probably won’t be considered as a serious candidate for the job. One of the best ways to appear confident is to demonstrate how well you perform under pressure. This audio will help you to do just that and provide you with tips on preparation, communication, body language, questions to expect and how to dress..

Second Confidence at Work: So you are successful at the job interview and get the job. We all know it’s important to at least appear confident at work. Because the way you present yourself in the workplace is pivotal to your success, you want to present the most confident version of yourself at work. Essentially being confident in your professional life centres around looking the part; feeling at ease with yourself and others; being cooperative and pleasant to work with. Confidence at work is being open, honest and straightforward with colleagues, clients and customers; having a sense of humour and being very good at what you do. Denis McBrinn takes you through a conversation about how you can build your confidence at work.

Audiobook: Resilience: Developing a resilient mindset and a resilient skillset

Mindcool

In cart Not available Out of stock

Written and narrated by Dr Denis McBrinn

Resilience is the ability to recover and become stronger as a result of dealing with challenging and difficult events that all of us experience in our lives. This audio is designed to help you to develop a resilient mind-set and a resilient skill-set to help you to bounce back from life’s challenges.

With the relentless pace of change in our modern world our lives seem to becoming increasingly complex. Because of the ecological, social, economic and political challenges in today’s world, as well as our own personal issues, it is essential that we learn to develop this vital quality of resilience.

Like many important human qualities, some people seem to be born with resilience and others have learned to become more resilient. Is resilience just a natural gift some people are lucky enough to have or can it be nurtured?

Research shows that all of us have the potential to adapt, learn and grow out of any situation, including the most horrifying and traumatic of events. Resilience can be learned, developed and strengthened and you can teach it to others.

Resilience is an inner quality that can only develop as a consequence of difficult times in our lives. It is impossible to become resilient without challenges. The challenging and difficult experiences of our lives present us with the opportunity to grow in character and become resilient. The good times don’t give us that opportunity. It is only in the “School of Hard Knocks” and the “Classroom of Adversity” that we can learn the lessons of resilience and bounce back.

Looking at the lives of highly resilient people it is clear that qualities such as courage; belief; hope; perseverance, acceptance; forgiveness and compassion are central to their success. This tells us that it is “inner qualities that transformed their lives and we came learn from their experience. Simply put, resilience is about building the inner strength to deal effectively with the stresses, trials and difficulties of life and to grow from the experience. We become more resilient when we learn to understand the spiritual, intangible, concepts of courage, faith, love, hope etc. and put them into practice in our daily lives.

Audiobook: Overcoming Failure: Overcoming failure and bouncing back from redundancy

Mindcool

In cart Not available Out of stock

Written and narrated by Dr Denis McBrinn

Overcoming failure is the ability to recover and become stronger as a result of dealing with challenging and difficult events that all of us experience in our lives. This audio is designed to help you to overcome failure by adopting a GROWTH attitude.

Chapter 2 of this audio looks specifically at how to bounce back from redundancy with practical advice on taking stock and planning your way forward.

In our culture we have been conditioned to fear failure. We hate to make mistakes, dislike criticism and don’t like to appear stupid in the eyes others. Whether it is in our careers, business, education, relationships, sport or in life generally, we don’t want others to think of us as failures. In some cases we will deny or cover things up rather than admit mistakes. It’s because everyone loves a winner. Everybody needs to love and to be loved. If we don’t win then the fear is that we may not be enough and we won’t be loved.

But this is not reality. No one is perfect. No one is right all the time and no one wins all the time. Studies of very successful people reveal that they faced many setbacks and had many failures along the way to ultimate success.

The value of failure is in the learning and the growth that it provides. Without learning and growth, failure can be a destructive force in our lives. But don’t let it. Get back up, Reframe the picture positively; identify your Options, find a Way forward, think appreciation and Work your socks off!

With your GROWTH attitude, failure is just temporary and you will bounce back and achieve your potential.

Losing our job is something we all fear and it that can certainly impact on our confidence and self-esteem. But, being made redundant need not be the calamity it first appears to be. With the right attitude you can bounce back and turn it into an opportunity for finding a job you're really passionate about.

But remember it is jobs or roles that are made redundant – not people. You can only become redundant if you see yourself as that job role. You may find yourself out of work for a while, but that does not have to mean the end of your working life.
