Stop, Understand and Move on
Our lives are full of events, a mix of changes, challenges and opportunities, the good and the bad, the big and the small, the simple and the complex.
We can’t control many of the events that happen in our lives… but we can control how we respond to those events, including how we deal with setbacks, disappointments and adversity, or make the most of opportunities.
This is the SUMO formula:
E + R = O
Event + Response = Outcome
If we improve our responses to the events that happen in our lives, we can also improve the outcomes, whether personal, professional or academic.
SUMO helps to improve our responses by:
* Changing how we think about ourselves and events.
* Learning how our beliefs and values impact on our responses.
*Supporting us to be empathetic and respect difference.
*Helping us deal with setbacks, be resilient, and to take care of ourselves when times are tough.
*Encouraging us to seize opportunities, step outside our comfort zones and set big goals.
We are a SUMO School!
