Cultural Intelligence, Greg Dearsly

Cultural Intelligence (CQ), is a research-based construct based on intelligence research. It is defined as “an individual’s capability to function effectively in a variety of cultural contexts including, national, ethnic, organisational, and generational”.

Anyone can become more culturally intelligent and in this webinar our presenter, Greg Dearsly, explains why this capability is critical to our profession.

Greg has recently completed his Masters in Leadership with Massey University and his findings in the area of cultural intelligence will form the basis of this webinar.

Menstrual Cycles and Mental Health

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is something that most people who have periods will experience. Hormones are powerful, and when they’re fluctuating (as they do before your period) they can make us feel pretty physically and emotionally out of kilter. Sometimes, the symptoms of PMS can go beyond just discomfort, manifesting as premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) - a severe form of PMS.

Unfortunately, PMS is common. From bloating and headaches to bad skin and sensitive moods, a whopping 90% of us will experience at least one PMS symptom before our period. If that wasn’t enough, before our period, hormones can also amplify things like anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions we may already be trying to manage. Thanks, hormones!

In this guide, Yoppie explores PMS, PMDD, uncovering the unique relationship between your period and your mental health to help you get on top of PMS for good! There are useful self-care tips and wellbeing advice - how the right diet, exercise, emotional and stress management practices help - it's well worth a read to help yourself and others too.
