Activate your C-level mindset

Our world in constant change is having a huge impact on our working environment, and the speed at which transformations are upon us is overwhelming. It seems almost impossible to thrive professionally in these volatile times, let alone excel. And yet, some seem to be immune to these changes. Individuals who navigate our complex world and achieve remarkable professional achievements. What characterises them is a set of specific skills that set them apart from others and allow them to keep growing. 

In C-level Mindset, Carolien Van Den Bosch shows what those skills are and challenges you to fully engage in your ‘C-level mindset‘ yourself. Because this is not reserved for people in C-level positions – everyone, at whatever level, can discover, nurture and deploy these skills and thus make a difference to themselves and their environment. 

With clear, scientific insights, telling anecdotes and concrete tools, Carolien takes you step-by-step through the 7 essential skills that will also make you a top performer!

The Mental Reset

How hybrid work and life strengthen resilience

The polycrisis is kicking in and people are suffering from chronic stress and burn-out like never before. But what if we are able to embrace this crisis as an opportunity for true transformation? What if we reset our (unhealthy) habits so we can face challenges stronger than we ever did before? What if we take this momentum as a head start for ourselves, our teams and our organisations?

In this session, we’ll inspire you with insights that you need to prepare for a post- pandemic era. We show you how hybrid work ánd life may render you more productivity, energy and inner peace at the same time. We take the time to reflect with you to reflect on how this hybrid context strengthens resilience for yourself, your teams and your company and what implications it has for your company’s strategy. And on top of that, we share our ideas about what you can exactly do to advance (self) leadership, to foster connection and psychological safety within your team, to focus on what really matters, and to touch the right future-proof chords. A must-experience if you want to get ready for a mental reset!

How others think about Carolien

I thought Carolien was wonderful. She managed to hold my attention for an hour! Also the message that you need to pay more attention to the brain to keep it healthy came across! I will definitely apply the tips (already done today)!

Monique WieringaHR Business Consultant at Thales

It is clear that Carolien speaks with a lot of knowledge and passion and she succeeded in bringing all our people into her story. Especially the concrete tips were much appreciated. For example, since the session I see more and more employees scheduling focus time, the rabbits and the elephants are talked about and the impossibility of multitasking was also discussed. So for me the session was very successful and very professionally brought. Really good job!
