Managing Difficult Conversations
This webinar will first dive into the science of communication because when you understand how our brain processes and reacts to information, you get a really good idea of the problem it presents when it comes to difficult conversations and it is therefore much easier to find a fix for it.
The major challenge is not only to manage your own emotions and behaviours while you deliver a message but to also manage your counterpart’s emotions and reactions.
We will then explore a 3-step technique to handle these conversations like a pro. You will learn to prepare, manage your own emotions and engage in a way that will protect your relationship but also to subtly help your counterpart manage their own emotions and
reactions so that you can both get the best outcome.

Different But Stronger Together
Our brain naturally motivates us to connect with others and rewards us when we do. This is the result of thousands of years of evolution because it is these connections that allowed us, humans, to survive, to create and to thrive.
Our brain has sadly been evolving at a much slower pace than our society. We are basically living with paleolitic brains in the 21st century and this is presenting huge barriers in the way we engage with others.
In this masterclass, we will discuss how our brain constantly tries to prevent us from engaging with change, novelty and difference and tips us into an "avoidant" motivation system as soon as we do.
This avoidance system is the reason why we prioritise engagement with what is familiar and why many corporations are suffering from sillo-organisation.
We will introduce the "Approach" motivation system that is based on acceptance and curiosity and explain how this is beneficial for individuals as much as it is for corporations.
Curiosity is a trait of character that we can cultivate and grow for ourselves but that we can also try to foster in our teams. We will share the latest pieces of research and a few tips to foster the desire to engage with the unfamiliar, to get out of our comfort zone and to embrace differences in order to grow together.
Work Life Balance
Smarter work-life balance is not about efficient time management anymore but all about focus management and how to make the most of confetti time.
In this workshop, we will introduce this new concept of focus management not only to boost our performance at work but also to support our health and wellbeing at work and outside of work.
You will leave the workshop with a set of tangible techniques to boost your efficiency, find a balance that supports both your work challenges and your social/family life, to make the most of both life at work and life at play and create a supportive community around you.
