When emotions have the wrong intensity, duration, or type for a particular situation, they can actually be quite harmful to us. In this webinar, we look at the neurophysiological components of emotions, emotional contagion, and how we can grab back more control.

Wellbeing & Confidence Webinar Series #3: Intuition vs Judgement

Judgement involves reasoning. Unlike intuition which is more about the ability to obtain knowledge without the use of reason. During this webinar we explore how to strengthen both; your intuitive voice and your ability to make a judgement call. Great steps toward developing more confidence.

Self-care is not about putting others second or last. It is about putting your own oxygen mask on first and being sure you set out on each new day with the internal strength you need to be the best you can be. We wrap up this series by highlighting how you can make a bigger difference by letting your new confident self-shine.


Architecture is Brenda’s specialty – and passion.

Along with 20 years coaching, recruitment and HR experience, Brenda holds a post graduate qualification in career development, international accreditation in energy management and emotional intelligence, and has a devoted passion for workplace and mental wellbeing. Forever fascinated by people, she founded her coaching business to help individuals take control of the script – and write their own career story.

In 2012, Brenda’s own career story became clear when she dipped her toes into the architecture industry as a recruiter. To Brenda, the people are the most interesting part of the industry. From new graduates through to established practice owners, architects have a profound relationship with their work and their design ethos. The industry is filled with colourful people, vibrant stories and unique challenges.

Using psychological and science-based courses, Leadership Reboot focuses on three key outcomes with architectural clients: increased leadership confidence, more cohesive teams and higher workplace wellbeing.

Believing in freedom for all, Brenda’s mission is simple: to help leaders realise their professional purpose and potential. To take them back to self, values….. belief!
