Review: Establishing a resilient mindset webinar (live only)


If you attended this webinar on Tuesday 9th June benefited from learning practical hands-on tools from Mental Health Ambassador, Chelsea Pottenger, on how to manage their mindset effectively. 


One of the tools learnt was Generosity


Interesting fact: When the Wharton Business School carried out a study on what occurs when teams show generosity to each other, they found that:

  • Compassion improves
  • Engagement increases
  • Output improved by 50%

How can I implement generosity into my workplace/team?

  • Start your meeting with a success of the week
  • WOW wall - virtual wall for wins, thank you's etc
  • Send positive emoji's
  • Virtual awards monthly

If our members would like to take advantage of one of Chelsea's online programs exploring more hands-on tools such as deep breathing, guided meditation, reframing and sleep hygiene, offered to ASUM Members at a DISCOUNTED RATE, please contact


Still time to register and learn.

Dr Yusef Sayeed

Work-Related MSK Disorders in Sonographers: Bridging the Gap


Last Chance 

Register and view before 17th June.


Learn from the expert


Dr Yusef Sayeed, Master Educator-Musculoskeletal Medicine and Director of Pain Medicine and Functional Rehabilitation in Florida, USA presents on musculoskeletal injury relating to ultrasound.

While this may typically affect sonographers, it is relevant to all ultrasound practitioners.


Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSD) among sonographers were first reported in 1985 as ‘sonographers shoulder’. Cardiac sonographers were first identified for WRMSD in 1993 and extensive surveys built on this further indicating multiple causative factors. International statistics indicate 80-90% of sonographers across disciplines experience work-related pain, with one in five experiencing a career ending injury.


While in Australia and New Zealand this is more prevalent in sonographers, there is increasing evidence of injury and pain occurring across all ultrasound practitioners and needs to be acknowledged and proactively managed before a career ending injury results.


Register and watch this on-demand resource at your own convenience until 20th June 2020.

Shannon Cooper

Difficult v Different - Workplace Behavioural Styles


Available until 4 July 2020

This session will help you understand your communication style, the styles of others and how to adapt more appropriately for better workplace outcomes.


Given the importance of self-awareness to the role of managers and leaders, developing deeper insights into behaviours and the actions of those around you is integral to success. Further, focusing purely on behaviour and ignoring context can inevitably lead to misunderstanding, frustration and conflict.


Institute of Managers and Leaders' presenter Shannon Cooper hosts a compelling, fun and engaging look at what makes us tick behaviourally and aims to stretch and challenge our perceptions of 'difficult' people.


In this webinar, you will:

  • Explore the science of behaviour
  • Understand your own personality style and how you like to work
  • Identify the difference between a difficult person and a difficult behaviour
  • Develop a model for effective conversation
  • Understand the profiles of your colleagues and how to build cohesion between different profiles

Register and watch this on-demand resource at your own convenience before 4th July 2020.
