From I-care to WE-care

Empowering Well-being: The Journey from Self-Care to Collective Care

More detailed information

In this compelling keynote, Brecht Buysschaert, the founder and CEO of Springbok Health & Well-being at Work, unravels the profound journey from individual self-care to the establishment of a collective well-being ethos within organizations. The presentation is a thoughtful exploration of the principles and practices that contribute to a healthier, more interconnected workplace.

Brecht sets the stage by delving into the importance of prioritizing individual well-being, drawing a parallel with the widely recognized airplane safety protocol—reminding us to secure our own oxygen masks before assisting others. This introduction serves as a poignant metaphor for the central theme of the keynote: the pivotal transition from personal care to a communal commitment to well-being.

Attendees are then guided through the core content of the keynote, as Brecht unveils the seven essential lifestyle pillars essential for cultivating a thriving, interconnected work environment. 

Brecht doesn't stop at theory; he provides practical insights, tips, and tricks that attendees can immediately integrate into their daily lives and work routines. These actionable strategies ensure that the transition from self-care to collective well-being is not just a conceptual ideal but a tangible and achievable goal.

Drawing on the experiences of Springbok Coaching, Brecht shares real-world examples of how these principles are implemented within their organization. These case studies serve as living proof that the journey from individual care to a culture of collective well-being is not just theoretical but can be effectively translated into successful workplace practices.
