A lot of research hypothesises that increased commitment of leadership to the organisation leads to increased employee identification to that organisation. To achieve this a leader should be self-aware, knowing one’s strengths, weaknesses and limitations. A leader should also be transparent (vision), balance decisions and have an ethical core which guides decisions.

High quality of the leader-member exchange (LMX) impacts employees' job satisfaction and turnover intentions.

Person-organisation fit is essential for autonomous and individual commitment toward the organisation, employee wellbeing and building ambassadorship.
Sometimes things go wrong, and the challenge isto act quickly and effectively. This can be done by strengthening your agility and resilience. Resilience is the skill you need to anticipate to and recover from a setback. Agility is crucial to react in a fast, effective, and agile way in every situation. Street survivors don’t sit back. Instead, they recuperate, and embrace what sucks when necessary. Don’t wait when things seem to go wrong. Accept, anticipate and act.
Positive focus, the ability to seeopportunities and positively approach the world, is essential for any meaningfull collaboration. You focus on that part of the problem that you can already solve yourself. The key to doing better both as an individual and as a company is to shift behaviour, focus on things that work well and take ownership.
People commit to the purpose of an organisation for many reasons. Identifying this personal reason is a first step to becoming part of that purpose. During the workshop people learn about ‘meaning’ and ‘impact’. What do they aspire to and how can they link this to the purpose of the organisation. The starting points are both personal awareness and environmental awareness.
Storytelling is the skill to convey the why of your commitment to others. Storytelling goes beyond telling a story. To find its way, a narrative has to convince people. Storytelling is about touching emotions and bringing a message, vision or mission in such a way that it inspires and moves people. It is a key skill to ensure that you get your message across.
Build a sense of belonging through constructive communication skills, empathic understanding of each other and collaboration around your shared goals and purpose.

Meaningful relationships lead to meaningful collaborations and results. Connecting people is all about creating a deep and authentic understanding. Finding and building connection helps to overcome silo-mentality, avoids polarisation and is key to team creation. Being connected generates positive emotions and fosters productivity. During the connect workshop we learn to connect again in a qualitative way.
Feedback is the communication that should allow us to bridge the gap between a standard and reality. And even though we all know that feedback is an inevitable, and often useful, part of our lives, there are several challenges. In this workshop, we dive deeper into the reasons why this is the case and we offer some techniques to clearly define this standard and a culture where feedback can work. Besides this, we like to talk about feedforward, which is a tool to set standards in the future.
Differences are inevitable in an organisation where different people have different experiences, expectations, habits and attitudes. Conflicts can be toxic and lead to disconnection, indecision and even sabotage. However, conflicts can also support the organisational goals. Clashes of ideas can shift paradigms, bringing creativity and new insights. Learn the different types of conflict and how to bring conflicts from a personal to a functional level.
Dealing with aggression requires a set of skills that goes beyond conflict management. It requires, among other things, (1) the ability to check yourself, (2) to quickly analyze a situation objectively, (3) to respond appropriately and (4) to reflect afterwards to take improvement steps towards the future. We start from ourselves, look at a objective way to forms of aggression and we put tips into practice to de-escalate a difficult situation.
As we increasingly collaborate with colleagues from different backgrounds and perspectives, promoting inclusiveness becomes essential to unlock the full potential of our teams and achieve better results.

The secret of achieving next level team worklies in finding the balance between close cooperation, the passion for that common goal and, at the same time, the courage to fight the necessary battles. Giving open feedback and challenging your individual team members and other stakeholders is key to reaching the next level of teamwork. This workshop helps individuals, teams and organisations to build their competitive advantage and strengthen their collaboration.
Persuasion is different from manipulation. Persuasion starts from a long-term vision in which all parties ultimately achieve maximum performance or results. To get there, insight is needed into how people make decisions and what arguments they are susceptible to. We also need to develop some skills to translate these insights into practice. We do this, amongst other things, by integrating simulations and exercises into the training.
Leading change requires the ability as a leader, manager or employee to create involvement, inspire stakeholders and generate enthusiasm to shape your change together. A culture of change presupposes that two components are available: the willingness to change and the ability to change. In this workshop we focus on the cognitive, emotional and practical initiatives required to implement changes successfully on an individual or at group level.
Pitching is about consciously bringing a message in a short period and is aimed at getting a specific desired response from your audience. You learn how to convince people by speech and make them engaged in your project, your idea, and your plan. It is a strong summary that makes your idea, or you as a person, top of mind.
Progress requires creativity. Creativity is the skill that allows us to expand patterns to discover something innovative and useful. Routines are crucial and effective but sometimes they hinder evolution. Proactive creativity is all about breaking patterns and unlearning routines, with a proactive focus on a positive desired outcome. This process help us to connect around the newly generated shared ideas and insights.
Involving stakeholders, monitoring resources, planning; these are skills that not everyone has developed in the same way.
