Why do we behave the way we do?

We all want to understand ourselves and others better. But it can often feel like we're missing the key pages of life's instruction manual!

At this special event, needs expert Alice Sheldon will share a fresh approach for finding answers and building positive relationships, which she calls "Needs Understanding". It’s based on one simple but profound idea: we’re all on a quest to meet our underlying human needs – such as belonging, knowing we matter or feeling appreciated. These needs matter deeply because they impact how happy we feel, whether we thrive at work and how we respond to the society around us.

So whether you're trying to make a tricky decision, communicate more effectively or enhance your relationships, Alice's ideas will really help. You'll learn how understanding needs can transform your life and bring more understanding and connection with others.
