Professional Workshops and Intensives
This workshop explains how to overcome the fear of change and drive organisational growth.
Learn key skills for improving your habits of communication and boost productivity in the process.
Delve into the myths which surround creative practices and discover strategies for inventive thinking.
In order to work through the never-ending to-do list and juggle the multiple demands of others, we have to sort the urgent tasks from the merely important and make a habit of being efficient.
We often think of entrepreneurs as bold risk-takers with completely original ideas, but we all can benefit from thinking like an entrepreneur: generating new ideas, understanding what customers need, and constantly evaluating the end product to look for improvements.
Develop an authentic leadership style that inspires commitment and gets results.
Developing greater resilience can help ensure that, when stress cannot be avoided, it won't derail important project or prevent important work from being completed.
For teams or entire organisations
Workshops for emotional intelligence
How can we stay calm? What can help us adapt to change? And how can we become more innovative? If there's one thing employees need in these times of radical changes, it is support with emotional questions. All of a sudden, we’re being faced by challenges that are asking us to come up with fresh answers and out-ot-the-box solutions. But at the same time, the circumstances in which we work have changed, making it more difficult to collaborate, which of course only adds to the stress.
Talks for your team or entire organisation
How can we develop a strong connection with our co-workers? Is there a way to deal with changes and insecurity more wisely? And how can we give more space to our creativity? The School of Life offers talks on topics that are relevant now and will continue to be so in the future. In our talks, our highly-engaging and talented speakers share helpful insights from psychology, philosophy or organisational science and let you experience their practical relevance. Follow an talk from The School of Life with your team or even with the entire organisation and get back to work with more (self-)insight!
Are you looking for a weekly dose of inspiration? Do you want to kick off your week with an extra boost of energy? Or would you like to liven up the (online) Friday afternoon drinks? It is now possible to book an talk at a fixed time during the week.
