fast foreward - Creating a Great Employee Experience
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Creating a great employee experience is deeply understanding what people want. By listening to people and observing how they work, companies can then focus on a holistic approach to meeting people’s needs for sustained wellbeing, smart and connected technology, and access to a diverse range of spaces. With this approach companies can create places where people want to work, gaining an edge over competitors when searching for the best and brightest, for more productivity, motivation an betteser results.
This session gives you an impression of "How to"!

The magic of understanding
Limited Capacity filling up

Do language skills reduce our ability to understand? How important is language for understanding? How can international companies enhance a culture of understanding? Bärbel Boy gives her audience game changing insights and practises exercises with some who want to experience the magic of understanding. In the future, understanding competence will be the mostly demanded competence. And the accompanying attitude will probably take precedence over flawless, polished mother-tongue text and other competencies of the old world.

It's all about the mindset - how to foster an innovation culture
"It is not about innovations, it is about innovators!"

Driven by exponential technological & digital growth, exponential decreases of natural resources, and social-and organizational shifts, our world is becoming more complex than it has ever been. Today, in business and society, the strength of these forces of change is felt more than ever before. We all need to re-learn how to navigate. We believe that the only real meaningful innovation that is needed in these times is the innovation of culture. As long as people don’t show an attitude to innovate your organization can spend unlimited budgets on innovation projects but won’t succeed in the long run.
During the session, we want to give you an outlook on how you can develop a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship within your organization: a culture of collaboration, customer focus, courage, optimism, empathy and mindfulness. A culture that is willing and able to deal with challenges of today.
A culture that everyone feels valued.

CoWorkLand - how to change society with good coffee and a beach
When we started our prototyping-tour coworking in the countryside was a great idea - one year later it's a movement and CoWorkLand became a fast growing cooperative. The story so far and what lies ahead.
