The 9 Principles of Change
Change is the most important life skill and survival tool for the next decade. After interviewing thousands, Ariane de Bonvoisin reveals the 9 habits of people who successfully navigate change, whether it is personal or professional. In a lively, and engaging manner, de Bonvoisin gets her audience to look at change differently, to evaluate their own 'change quotient', how to handle emotions such as fear, doubt and impatience and multiple ways to strengthen their 'change muscle'. She discusses what makes the difference in people and companies who can handle any change. Companies are inspired to look at how good they and their employees are at navigating change and how this is rapidly becoming a core competency. She leaves her audiences with optimism, practical tools and ways of making any change easier.
Parenting skills for Happy employees
Parenting skills are the next frontier for happy, healthy and productive employees. When parents feel heard, understood and taken care of, they show up differently at work. In a culture of performance, deadlines, and profitability, employees struggle to be good parents as well and often feel as though being a good parent is traded off against work. When issues with children show up at home, they affect performance. By aiding their employees, employers demonstrate a willingness to help them on their most important role outside the office.
In this talk, Ariane helps parents with skills to nurture their spirit, to establish good healthy routines, to help with guilt, blame and balancing work and parenting. She creates an environment of authenticity and connection that employees can feel they don’t have to hide the fact that they have kids, but that their company truly values this role as well. She also teaches new skills that all kids need to know and develop for the world that is coming. Parents are left with a new tool-box of how to deal with the everyday challenges of raising kids while also showing up in the best way possible at work.
