How to build your resilience in times of change?

“People who are resilient work smarter and can successfully negotiate the inevitable changes that are the one certainty of life.” Changing work practices, new technology and the fast paced demands of our everyday lives means that we are all under pressure and it can be challenging to experience sustained stress. Ensuring resilience means promoting positive outlook, protection from stress and better performance for the whole organization. Some of us naturally have in-built resilience, some do not. The good news is that resilience can be taught, as you will experience during this highly interactive workshop. You will also get your own personal resilience profile (based on 20 years of research and 120 scientific papers) to know where you should precisely focus to improve your own resilience. And you will have access to a refresher after 3 month with videos from the creator of this resilience approach.

Benjamin Hermer
Learn how to define, implement and monitor a strategy for your JE.

The workshop aims to help your JE to define a strategy, and moreover, to implement it and monitor it. Defining a strategy means giving your organization a direction: if you don’t know where to go, you can’t reach anywhere. But most importantly, a strategy needs to be implemented. Once you defined the ending point of your travel, you need to take the right roads. And that’s the implementation part. During the trip, and at the end of it, your JE also needs to know if you are proceeding in the right direction: and that’s the monitoring part. Benjamin Hermer, former Project Manager at JADE and International Manager of CNJE, is today a Manager at KPMG expert in strategy implementation.
