Workshops

Developing a solid and sustainable business strategy and/or integrated performance system can be a real struggle. Our experts developed several proven methods for achieving concrete results.

During our strategic workshops we provide your organization with the right perspectives, knowledge and tools to help you effectively analyze the key issues and challenges of your organization and integrate them into a future-proof strategy. We combine varying facilitation techniques, including design thinking, interactive tools (e.g. LEGO® Serious Play®) and simulations to organize brainstorms that deliver concrete results in an efficient way.

Self-leadership

Resilience

Resilience is the ability to deal with life's setbacks. Not to be knocked down, but to be able to rebound. Resilience is like a muscle – in this workshop, we will first dive into your stress reactions to see how you can use this to train your resilience. We focus on your mental, physical and behavioral habits.

Personal leadership

In this workshop, we not only look at how to manage yourself as effectively as possible (“Before Leading Others, Manage Yourself”; Covey), but we also dig deeper underneath the tip of the iceberg: What is your story? What do you want to achieve? Why would anyone follow you as a leader?

Giving feedback

Many executives have difficulties in giving feedback – both positive and negative. In this workshop, you will learn what feedback can do and how a change of mindset can help you to give feedback more easily and better. In addition, a number of basic skills will be practiced.

Managing stress

Managing information overload and stress: the prefrontal cortex, which regulates the higher cognitive functions, both physical and mental, is extremely sensitive toward stress. We will address the factors of “control”, “support” and “demand” to be able to consciously manage our performance and decision-making.

The BrainBalance

The “Healthy Mind Platter” is a metaphor which refers to taking care of the brain and the mind. During this workshop, we will reflect upon a set of activities that overall optimize your “brain health”. This “mental diet” will help you to optimize neurocognitive functioning and well-being.

Harmonizing Work, Family and Personal Life (WFPL)

How do you manage the relationship between work, family and personal life? Which “boundary management” system do you apply? Are you aware of the spillovers and the impact on the different dimensions? We will also go into a few harmonizing techniques to help you to moderate stress (e.g. the power of (dis)connection).

Other possible topics

Career and self-management, performance management & the brain balance, sustainable HRM.

Leadership of others

Leading change

Change through inspiration and motivation: Through this workshop, we first try to “analyze” and understand what motivates others. We will start with a deep dive in interpersonal relations and how people respond to each other. We will then focus on group dynamics and how to create a sense of community to go toward the change.

Leadership styles and coaching techniques

During this workshop, we will explore the different cognitive styles. We will try to discover what your own cognitive style is and what the prevalent cognitive styles of others are. Other topics that will be addressed are: What does leadership 3.0 really mean? Which different leadership styles are there? In addition, why is coaching so important?

Other topics

High performance organizations, paradoxical leadership & motivation, the future of work, leading (global) virtual teams

Innovation & intrapreneurship

Business Design Thinking

Design thinking combines an open, creative mind with goal-oriented processes, allowing you to discover new (business) opportunities that respond to the real needs of your clients. This creates new solutions for your clients and new (strategic) opportunities for your company. Through practical workshops and exercises, various tools are introduced such as strategy sprint, research wall, customer journey mapping, service blueprint, business modelling, etc.

LEGO® Serious Play®

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a facilitated meeting, communication and problem solving method in which the facilitator guides the participants through a series of questions that always go a step deeper. Each participant builds his or her own three-dimensional model with specially selected LEGO blocks as an answer to the facilitator's questions. These 3D models serve as a basis for group discussion, knowledge sharing, problem solving and decision making.

Other possible topics

Technologies of tomorrow, entrepreneurial strategy, business model innovation, creative thinking, corporate innovation, entrepreneurship & entrepreneurial teams, technology entrepreneurship, corporate venturing, value based pricing, managing of digital transformation, customer centric innovation, emerging technologies, digital talent paradox, exponential transformation

Organizational transformation

Building effective organizations

"The WHO of organizational change & transformation": WHO are we? How does our organization work and how can I improve it? The first part consists of designing effective organizations. The second part consists of fostering engagement and cooperation. In addition, the last part focuses on learning and development.

Driving strategic change

“The WHERE of organizational change & transformation”: WHERE is our organization going? How do we get it to reinvent it selves and how can I get the organization to start moving in the right direction? The first step consists of setting strategic direction. Then the focus goes toward mobilizing organizational stakeholders. The last step consists of adapting to unfolding circumstances.

Leading change implementation

“The HOW of organizational change & transformation”: HOW can we get going? How do organizations realize change and how can I overcome barriers in achieving new directions? The first step consists of steering change processes. Then we focus on dealing with barriers & resistance.

Sustainable transformation

Sustainable transformation @work

Sustainable transformation is a journey that many companies and societies are on – to improve our quality of life and to secure the future of our planet. The challenges are significant – as is evident by the five forces of breakdown in society, which are disruption, disconnection, disparity, degradation and discontent. However, the counterforces of innovation are not to be underestimated, bringing us exciting solutions that are making our workplaces, labor markets and societies more secure, smart, shared, sustainable and satisfying.

Sustainability & innovation – creating integrated value

Integrated value presents a systemic framing of our global challenges and innovative responses. It is thus a methodology for implementing integrated value called “The 7 Steps of Integrated Value Management”. Integrated value is based on innovation synergies that are secure, shared, sustainable, smart, and satisfying, based on solutions emerging from the resilience economy, circular economy, digital economy, and well-being economy. Such an approach can help to stimulate and evaluate purposeful innovation, i.e. innovation with societal impact, by looking for the opportunities at the nexus of tackling the five forces of fragmentation or breakdown, which are disruption, inequality, degradation, disconnection and dissatisfaction.

Circular Economy 101

Today’s linear economic model is based on the principles of take-make-use-waste. This has made our global society unsustainable. Overproduction, loss of biodiversity, waste, climate change, resource scarcity: this economic model has reached its limits. If we want to sustain our global society and offer opportunities for a growing population, the economy needs to transition from being primarily a linear process to being a circular process of borrow-make-use-return. In this workshop, we explore the basic principles of a circular economy and how you can contribute to it.

Other possible topics

Integrated value, systems thinking, sustainable transformation, innovation for future fitness

Balance and resilience

BrainBalance

In this session, the “BrainBalance” is introduced as a neuroscience-based model for taking care of one’s mental and physical energy and thereby increasing focus, efficiency, and health. The model consists of 10 activities, organized in 5 paradoxical axes, that each contribute in a unique way to brain health and the capability to (re)focus. Before the session, participants are invited to fill out the BrainBalance survey to diagnose their current state, and in the course of the session, participants get a lot of practical input on how to improve their BrainBalance.

Harmonizing Work, Family and Personal Life (WFPL)

In this session, we focus on the fundamental underlying attitudes, insight and skills needed for harmonizing work, family and personal life. Based on over 20 years of research in this domain, we introduce relevant concepts like purpose, boundary management, work-family conflict and spillover. He translates insights into practical actions participants can take to increase the harmony and integrate personal and professional career management. Before the session, participants are invited to fill out the WOPLIC (Work-Personal Life Integration & Coping) survey to diagnose their current state, and in the course of the session, participants get a lot of practical input on how to improve their WFPL harmony.

Managing Stress

In this session, participants receive inputs from the fields of occupational health psychology and neuroscience and psycho-neuro-immunology to develop a more sophisticated understanding of the connections between mind and body. This is the necessary basis to introduce different cognitive and emotional regulation techniques that can be used in managing stress. This is a hands-on session in which participants diagnose their sources of stress and related responses while learning emotional regulation techniques for managing stress during peak periods, such as meditation and re-appraisal.
