Interactive Session 1: Coaching Leadership
How to be the change you want to see
Unlocking the full creative and human potential of its employees is key to any company that wants to develop a sustainable competitive advantage. For this, it is important that people feel connected, competent and autonomous in their job and in their relations at work. Research has shown that managers and leaders play a crucial role in providing the right conditions to exhibit leadership behaviour, such as support, mentoring and coaching to promote growth and development of the people in the organisation.
Following the International Coaching Federation, we define Coaching Leadership as “partnering with followers in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential”. This particular leadership style contains a specific and learnable set of competences: including establishing trust & intimacy, coaching presence, active listening and asking powerful questions. In this session you will be introduced to coaching as a leadership style and you will begin to explore these skills in practice.

Interactive Session 2: Sustainable Employability
The Sustainable Employability Myth: What is it really about?
Whose problem is it? Is it about flexibility or having a special mind-set? Is it about drive and resilience?
This workshop will take you on a journey of discovery into this hot topic in business, healthcare and the public sector, in other words, everywhere. But does it really exist and why is it so urgent in our time?
In this interactive hour we will share some insights from our qualitative research and show you some of the building blocks that belong together to reach the mission of being sustainably employable. Together we will design some practical applications, linked to these building blocks, to use in your daily professional and private life.

Interactive Session 3: Digitalisation
Harnessing digital power for your future success
Digitalisation has and will continue to influence the way we work. Can you imagine that only 60 years ago we had to do calculations manually, communicate via letters that we sealed by licking envelopes and write down all the appointments and contacts in our paper agendas. With technology advancing at an exponential pace we are only at the beginning of the digital transformation, so how will this affect your role in your company today and in the future?
In this workshop we will dissect the current developments of digitalisation and share what opportunities and challenges it has for you. Will technology replace you or will it augment you to a new digital superhero that can do the work ten times as fast and with ten times the complexity and accuracy? These are relevant questions that you need to ask yourself and this workshop will take the time to reflect on them.
