About The Course

Rewire Your Brain For Success & Personal Wellbeing is a science-based programme designed by Mindful Leadership Advisor & Transformative Coach Palma Michel, combining elements of mindfulness, neuroscience and positive psychology.

It is targeted at senior executives, high potentials and anyone wanting to ace their inner game to thrive at their outer game.

The course is designed to help you make your mind work for you rather than against you. You will learn how to manage your inner critic, drop out of worst-case-scenario thinking, rewrite the story of your life and gain strength from your past.

You will also learn how to use the power of acceptance to experience increased clarity and wellbeing. We will look at counterbalancing the negativity bias of your mind though gratitude practice and how to create positive images to help you navigate through challenging situations.

The Power Of Thought

The Power Of Thought

In this lecture, Palma speaks about how we are creating our reality through our thoughts. She shares a surprising Harvard study on the power of the mind and invites you to a few thought experiments to demonstrate the power of thought.

The Negativity Bias of The Mind

Palma speaks about the in-built negativity bias of our minds and how that affects our wellbeing in daily life. She also speaks about the fact that uncertainty is very difficult for most people and shares two scientific studies from Harvard and Stanford that illustrate how well we are equipped to adapt to uncertainty and change.

Your Inner Critic

Do you have an inner critic? If you do, you are not alone and this lecture addresses the nature of the inner critic, including what it is and where it comes from. Palma offers a practical exercise to increase awareness about your own inner critic.

Managing Thought

Rewiring Your Brain & Saying Goodbye To Your Inner Critic

In this lecture, Palma offers an exercise on how you can actively work on 'rewiring your brain' and create new neural pathways to overcome your inner critic.

The Power Of Acceptance

Palma provides an overview of the power of acceptance for increasing your overall wellbeing and life satisfaction, based on a study from Deakin University in Australia. Palma also addresses common misperceptions when it comes to practising acceptance and introduces the 'STEP' formula, designed to help you "snap out of toxic mind states".

Exercise: Rewriting Your Story

Palma explains how the stories we tell ourselves about our lives can massively impact our wellbeing. She shares personal examples from her own life and those of her clients. As Steve Jobs famously said, "we can only connect the dots looking backwards, never forwards". Palma discusses how looking back can make us feel bitter or better, but ultimately that choice is yours. She leads a guided reflection and journaling exercise that invites you to look back at your own life and rewrite your narrative.

Exercise: Gaining Strength From Your Past

Palma invites you to reflect on moments in your life that were challenging, as well as obstacles that you have already overcome. The learnings and insights from these experiences can help you as you look ahead into your future. She explains that taking your attention away from catastrophising or giving your power away to external circumstances is the first step towards actively changing your future.

Gratitude Practice

Palma explains the research behind gratitude practice and how to use it to 'rewire your brain' for positivity and to counteract the negativity bias of the mind. She will also guide you through a gratitude practice.

The Power Of Visualisation

Palma shares a visualisation technique as a powerful tool to shift out of negative mind states in order to help you to move towards a positive future.
