The ABC language creates connection and impact. This language is based on self-determination theory, one of the most influential psychological theories of this century, and the basic principles of connecting communication.

In this keynote, you will learn in what ways you can be motivated for your work, how to increase optimal motivations, and what are the crucial components of trust. She uses a handy 'ABC' for this, which goes back to our universal and innate basic psychological needs.

Hermina interactively teaches you the basics of this ABC language, she teaches you how to give feedback, connective communication, and above all, she makes you feel how powerful and useful this language is, at home and at work.

Depending on your needs, Hermina focuses on themes that are alive in your organization, such as feedback, communication, stress, control, letting go, meaningfulness, meaning, impact, resistance to change, etc.

Knowing how to best motivate yourself and others is crucial, and in this keynote you will learn how to do this through your language.
