The COVID-19 pandemic shook the world awake. Certainties and certainties are being pushed aside, our limitless freedom has suddenly been curtailed. What didn’t go well, often went even worse and at the same time some things just went better. Many an organization and its employees went through a bath of rapid transformation. Changes that were virtually unthinkable six months ago were implemented at a rapid pace. And everyone did what they had to do, contributing to the bigger picture. One thing is clear: many of us experienced how resilient we are as human beings. We came up with creative solutions and took care of each other. We realized what we really care about, what we might no longer want, what our talents are.
Our brains can assist us in these circumstances or just work against us in dealing flexibly with change. Research shows that part of our brain that enables us to reflect – the so-called executive functions – is central to surviving and growing as a team (and organization) in this day and age.
How can you restart?
For example, have you ever thought about what you want to take out of this time? How can you grow out of that yourself, as a team and as an organization? How do we prepare for the post-corona era? One thing is certain, the world is not the same anymore. The message is unequivocal: he who can adapt will survive!
We believe in the power of transformational self-leadership that can help you navigate to a new – and perhaps better – version of yourself and your teams. In the #WEBETTERSTART program we take you and your team with us to be inspired to embrace this restart. We’ll also challenge you in workshops to bring it all to the surface to create a swift restart. These sessions can be organized virtually or physically -coronaproof-. If you wish, we can put together a tailor-made programme for your team and organisation so that you are strong in the new normal.

Webinar: Back to the future! How uncertainty can become a certainty!
Managers have been challenged in their leadership during the past period. Assurances were quickly pushed aside. The emergency measures put people, teams, and organizations as a whole under pressure.
