“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” poet John Donne
According to a 2015 study in the National Bureau of Economic Research, social skills have a growing importance in the labor market. In order to succeed at work, experts need to keep on developing both their technical skills and “foundational skills”, like empathy and creativity.
The work place is a space of co-creation and collaboration with others. The more we learn how to communicate and behave with our co-workers, the better we’ll be able to divide tasks quickly and effectively between team members. People feel happier being part of a more productive team.
As part of the main, we need to be aware of the great value we could individually bring to the group. The more motivated, inspired and passionate we are about our individual work, the more valuable the outcome.
Themes we can cover
- Managing yourself at work,
- Identify a satisfying career strategy,
- Spotting new career opportunities, etc.
What coaching is
Coaching is a self-directed learning experience. Each brain looks like a unique map of a city. That’s why offering advice to you may not be an efficient way to helping you.
Instead, my role as a coach is to ask solution-focused questions to help you make your own connections in the brain and create new wiring.
My experience with coaching
In over 2 years of coaching, the majority of the clients I have worked with are individuals who are exploring their paths to a new satisfying career.
There are two tracks of corporate training.
The first track aims at enhancing the creativity skills of professionals with entrepreneurial roles in the organisation.
The creativity skills workshops are organised around the following themes:
Generating New Ideas Workshops
We’ll get acquainted with concepts related to creative thinking and have fun exploring how we can move beyond obvious ideas to the more creative ones.
Developing Creative Habits
Highly creative people display certain habits of character. We’ll explore how you can adopt some of those habits in order to come up with creative outcomes, thus boosting your performance.
Your creative team culture
Fostering a supportive environment where employees feel it’s worth to voice out original ideas.
The second track is aimed for teams to build trust and good relationships between members.
- Open communication – Emotional self-awareness, understanding your own thinking and speaking up with clarity.
- Empathy – Sensing other team members emotions and truly listening.
Gratitude in the team
How does it feel when a work colleague thanks you for offering your help? Everyone wants to see their work is appreciated.
On one hand, showing appreciation is something that does not come in naturally to everyone. On the other hand, saying thank you all the time does not improve the work relationships. In this seminar, we will clarify when and how gratitude works best to promote healthier work relationships.
Generosity at work
In his book, Give and Take, Adam Grant shows how and why givers rise to the top in organisations. How about teams? In these workshops, we’ll explore what kind of generosity can members show towards one another to ensure the success of the team.
