Calm in Chaos Virtual Learning Group

Weekly 'pause' and learning conversations to spread calm during these difficult times

2020 has certainly not been a year like any other.

At this time of uncertainty, you may be feeling worried, anxious and maybe panicked about a range of things. Uncertainty - simply not knowing what will happen - creates anxiety.  Prolonged anxiety and panic increases the stress hormone, cortisol and suppress our immune system - which is the last thing we need right now. The worry and stress can also stop us from responding creatively and adapting.

The Calm in Chaos virtual learning group series is a weekly opportunity to 'pause' and deliberately create space to step back, create a resourceful state to learn strategies, skills and tools to manage ourselves and navigate through these uncertain times.

Let's spread calm, rather than the virus or panic.
We are asking people to pay around AU$30 if you can but please do not pay if you cannot pay and you are very welcome to join the live session or view the recording without paying.

20% of proceeds will be donated to FoodBank

Megumi and Quietly Powerful
Quietly Powerful is a movement started by Megumi Miki, to help quieter professionals to succeed on their own terms and help organisations and society to expand their definition of what good leadership looks like.

Due to current mainstream beliefs about what good leadership looks like - typically outspoken and dominant - quiet professionals feel overlooked workplace. On the other hand, Quietly Powerful leaders exist, they make significant contributions to organisations and society. Organisations miss out as incredibly talented people, potential Quietly Powerful leaders, remain hidden and under-utilised. We need to expand our definition of what good leadership looks, sounds and feels like.

Since starting in August 2016, the movement has attracted thousands of people from around the world, with growing interest in Australia and globally on LinkedIn.

The work is firmly based on the view that quieter professionals can be powerful leaders in their chosen field because of their quieter nature, not in spite of it. Powerful shifts have occurred in professionals with whom Megumi has worked.

In this current uncertain and chaotic environment, one of the quiet superpowers - inner calm - is critically needed, regardless of personality and natural tendencies. Calm in Chaos aims to spread calm, not panic in these extraordinary times.

Megumi is constantly developing a range of resources and tools for quieter professionals and organisations who wish to unlock their hidden talent - join the movement and Unlock the music you were born to play!
