Choose positive

How do you make a switch in your thinking and choose the positive option?

More detailed information

Positivity in personal and professional life has many benefits. Complaining, on the other hand, affects our well-being and our (work) relationships with others. Complaining and continuing to complain leads to a negative spiral with detrimental consequences. In this keynote, Isabelle reflects on the influence of an overdose of complaining on our (professional) well-being. It is not always easy to escape. Not as an individual, but also as a team member in a professional context.

How do you make a switch in your thinking and choose the positive option? It is a matter of the right mindset. Central in this keynote is how you can choose positively in terms of your thoughts, your words and your basic attitude. Isabelle challenges you to make a switch in your thinking on the basis of concrete examples. And the nice thing is: if you know how to turn the switch, you automatically infect your fellow man.

The lecture is experienced as a real motivation-boost!
