    Nonviolent communication workshop

    NVC (Nonviolent Communication) has been used around the world from peace talks, to boardrooms, to living rooms. 

    This workshop offers an engaging and interactive introduction to the concepts of NVC, a simple yet powerful communication process developed by Dr Marshall Rosenberg that can dramatically improve all of our relationships, from professional to personal. Through a combination of presentation, examples and brief exercises, participants will understand the basic concepts of NVC, experience the difference NVC creates, and be able to start applying NVC in their professional and personal lives. 

    Participants will be able to understand, experience, and start to apply how to:

    • better influence others
    • hear a criticism without feeling being attacked or rejected
    • create deeper connections with others

    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.
