THE EMPOWERMENT TRANSPLANT™ DIY instructions included is the secular, counter-intuitive way to a sustainable sense of empowerment. Informed by self-determination theory and inspired by Buddhist philosophy, it posits both a correlative relationship between empowerment and self-determination; and empowerment as an essentially self-generative phenomenon. For this reason, instructions can only be DIY. They comprise training in a self-coaching methodology that centres on the structured practice of compassion as depersonalising strategy to mitigate the subjective interpretation of perceived workplace bullying; and to facilitate development of The Balanced View™. The Balanced View™ facilitates transplant of learned mindful response, rather than mindless reaction, into situations of perceived self-preservation risk. The Balanced View™ promotes emergence stronger for the workplace bullying experience, based on self-evidence of self-determination, rather than intimidation, in the workplace bullying context.

THE EMPOWERMENT TRANSPLANT™: DIY instructions included is an experience. Participants can look forward to an interactive, in-depth exploration of compassion as a structured depersonalising strategy; and skills extension due to practising development of The Balanced View™.

Participants will leave this engaging, educative session with one learning outcome: experiential understanding of how to follow DIY instructions for a sustainable sense of empowerment.
