How do I train my
tolerance muscle? 

Workshop with Daphne van Roon

What is that? 

Do you long for less insecurity, more confidence and more peace of mind? Then this workshop is definitely not for you! 


What you will learn in this workshop is how to cope with uncertainty and other discomforts, with flexibility and resilience.  Daphne approaches change from the perspective that uncomfortable feelings are an integral part of life. If you want to make your own choices you will have to deal with everything that you simply need to accept as a fact. Willingness and courage are key, so you will be able to use your energy for sensible things and take control of things, step by step. 

During the workshop, you will gain insight into your coping strategies when dealing with difficult situations at work: for example a particular colleague who gets under your skin, a client that you feel very insecure about, or your own perfectionism that you keep running into. You will learn how to take better care of yourself and discover the benefits of learning to look the monster fearlessly in the mouth.


The workshop is interactive, alternating theory and exercises. Each participant will work with a case from their own practice.
