Content

The one thing we can be certain of as freelance creatives is that nothing is set in stone. Change is not only part of the job but is often what attracted many of us to it. The variety, excitement and challenge that come with the territory are what we thrive upon.

The downside can be an irregular income, difficulty making plans very far ahead or, in some cases, not knowing for sure what we will be doing in a month or two’s time. So, it can be a double-edged sword, exciting and invigorating and unsettling and worrying.

Also, when things are not going well, the lack of certainty can create anxiety and stress in our lives, causing us to focus more on those aspects than is helpful for us, which can lead to a downward spiral.

In this webinar, we will share tips and strategies to help you manage the downsides of uncertainty while remaining optimistic and open to its opportunities including:

  • How to make peace with uncertainty
  • How to stay resourceful in the down times
  • How to keep trying in the face of adversity
  • How to deal with rejection
  • Assessing what you can and can’t control.

The format

While you will be able to see and hear the tutors, you will not be visible or audible to them or each other. However, you will be able to ask questions, see the questions that others ask and make comments.

The format for this session is approximately 1hr of presentation-style teaching interspersed with questions and answers from participants. We will round up the with a Q & A session.

Depending on how many questions are asked, the session may run longer than 1hr so please set aside 1hr 15mins if you want to stay to participate in the Q & A at the end.

Who should enrol

Anyone who wants to improve the way that they handle uncertainty and avoid the stress that it can sometimes bring.

Expected learning outcomes

  • Alternative outlooks on the subject of uncertainty
  • Strategies for dealing with the tougher times
  • A clearer understanding of what you can and can’t control
  • Strategies for managing common uncertainties

 

Tutors: Frances Dredge and Muriel McClymont
