The mental reset

How hybrid work and life strengthen resilience

More detailed information

2020 and 2021 represented one of the greatest resilience experiments in our lives. 

What if we embrace this crisis as an opportunity for true transformation? What if we reset our habits so we can face challenges stronger than we ever did before? What if we take this momentum as a head start for ourselves, our teams and our organisations?

In this talk Elke Geraerts inspires you with insights that you need to prepare for a post-pandemic era. She shows you how hybrid work ánd life may render you more productivity, energy and inner peace at the same time

She takes the time with you to reflect on how this hybrid context strengthens resilience for yourself, your teams and your company. And on top of that, she shares her ideas about what you can exactly do to advance (self) leadership, to foster connection within your team, to focus on what really matters, and to touch the right future-proof chords. 

A must-experience if you want to get ready for the post-pandemic reset!
