How to travel the twilight zone: creating a human2human digital realm

Welcome to the threshold of tomorrow, a place where the ticking clock of progress never halts. As we stand on the brink of 2030 and beyond, the question that looms large is: How can our company remain a beacon of relevance for people and society? Imagine, if you will, a Twilight Zone - not one of uncertainty, but of uncharted potential. Here, we are like Alice in Wonderland, driven by an insatiable curiosity. This zone is ripe with opportunities to seize the pen and author our future, rather than idly waiting for it to unfold. In this keynote, we will embark on a journey through innovation, exploring how to harness it and organize it effectively. It's about igniting creativity, fostering curiosity, and leveraging technology to rekindle the human-to-human connection that seems to be fading in today's digital world. Together, let's step into this realm of possibilities and design a future that's not only waiting for us but is shaped by us.

Self-Leadership and Mental Health for Leaders

Understanding Yourself is Key. By understanding your triggers and emotions, you can choose your reactions instead of being reactive. This empowers you to be a more mindful leader who can create a space for others to be themselves. Leaders who prioritize their mental health as well as healthy habits like sleep, exercise, and learning become role models. In this talk, we will cover the topic of self-care as a responsibility for effective leadership. Furthermore, join us to understand, that recognizing cultural differences, (e.g. burnout indicators in various cultures), allows for proactive leadership that fosters well-being.

Break Free from the Perfection Trap

This talk will be all about the perfection trap and how to avoid it.
