Our consulting focuses on OH&S from a behavioural perspective and we specialise in helping businesses with those ‘human factor’ incidents that cannot be explained i.e. a professional driver failing to couple a trailer correctly, when in their minds they fully believe they did. The culprit – Busy Brain.
Safety has become ‘mental’ and compliance driven with an overabundance of ‘rules, procedures, regulations and PPE’, not to mention the most recent practice of engaging a ‘watcher’ to watch what people are doing!!! All of this sends a clear message to people, you cannot ‘trust’ yourself to be safe – interestingly incidents are also increasing.
PPE and ‘watchers’ DO not make people safe people. Awareness, focus, and self-trust make people safe. When safety-critical workers understand how BBS compromises their ability to work in a ‘safe’ manner at all times, it transforms their trust in themselves to BE safe.
Distraction, forgetfulness and an inability to focus on tasks are literally the new normal these days. People tend to blame themselves thinking they have early onset dementia or are nuts, however, the real culprit is their Busy Brain.
BBS activates the ‘survival fight or flight response’ which by default is negative, you are hardly going to be jumping for joy facing a lion eyeing you for lunch. This causes the brain to shut down and people incessantly self-judge by constantly comparing themselves to others and thus consistently seek validation to feel better.
Once people understand how BBS works and learn to become ‘aware’ once again, they shift their perceptions to what is possible, rather than being locked into limitations. Everything looks different from this perspective and people’s actions are optimised for the greater good, rather than their own protection – which is an illusion, there IS no lion!!
Aware of Mind – conquer Busy Brain
BBS locks our brain processing into a ‘negative state’ which results in overthinking – ‘monkey-mind‘, grossly limited awareness, an inability to focus, and ‘reactionary’ autopilot behaviours.
The most insidious impact is failure to process what is right in front of you, which is how those unexplainable ‘human factor’ incidents occur.
The eyes don’t ‘see’ – the brain does, just as the ears don’t hear, the brain does – next time your spouse accuses you of not listening – tell them it’s your Busy Brain.
BBS stops the visual signal of the keys you can’t find from being processed, how often do you find them later right in front of you – they were there ALL the time.
The key to overcoming BBS is to develop your ‘awareness’ which pivots your brain to being ‘open’ to all signals [the keys]. You are no longer in ‘autopilot reaction mode’ and consciously ‘respond’ to daily demands.
Awareness is an innate skill that ALL species on the planet have – in case you forgot humans are ‘a biological species as well’. Technology and the speed of ‘technology changes’ has caused humans to become ‘completely MENTAL. The good news is, ‘sensory input’ ALWAYS overrides mental ‘brain’ activity, if it didn’t humans would be extinct.
Aware of Mind – Program Outline
- Understanding Busy Brain – how it has become a ‘habit’ and why?
- Your brain has changed you are not ‘crazy or losing it’, the changes from technology occurred too fast for the brain to adapt.
- How to eradicate Busy Brain – learn about what ‘awareness is, how did they build the empire state building?
- Re-learn how to use the innate power of the body to override your ‘ranting mind’ that drives you crazy, especially when trying to sleep.
- Behaviour Change – our fail-proof process guarantees that you can break the Busy Brain habit and revert to being calm which is humans’ ‘natural state’, and why the craziness of BBS is so stressful.
Training can be done in as little as 2.5 hours or up to a whole day.
