    Resilience, a mindful approach to Performance

    Over the next decade, we will witness changes with an unprecedented speed, scale and force.  That will affect our life and work significantly.  

    Alexia Michiels, partner at The Resilience Institute, will propose a practical and evidence-based approach supporting leaders to embrace these changes to: 

    - GET READY to seize the opportunities of the emerging world;

    - GET READY to lead with success and joy;

    - GET READY to impact the environment positively.

    This workshop is an interactive and practical introduction to Resilience where Alexia will share tools that participants will be able to use immediately in their daily life.

    Join the workshop and discover Alexia's method. Resilience is built on daily routine. 

    Alexia believes in habits and that it is possible to develop resilience habits that serve people on a daily basis. 

    It also helps for burnout prevention: have an enthusiastic way to look at our lives; helps navigate the ups and downs of our lives and work with ease and success. 

    Alexia Michiels, Partner of The Resilience Institute Europe, will share the key insights from the Global Resilience Diagnostic Report 2016 based on more than 26 000 diagnostics in 6 countries and regions.
