“How to become more adaptable to change”

Want to learn how to develop the skill of adaptability, deal with the unexpected and see change as a good thing?

You will achieve this in our new workshop!

We live in the world full of vitality, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA). ‘The only constant is change’ – as a Greek philosopher Heraclitus once said. Change is all around and often unpredictable. Unfortunately, our brain doesn’t like change, that’s why it is so hard to adapt. We prefer to stay with what’s familiar, but if we keep living in our ‘cosy bubbles’, we won’t grow. We need to learn to quickly adapt to new situations and keep developing. That’s the only way to succeed in today’s world, for individuals and businesses alike.

This highly interactive workshop will help you to better understand what is adaptability, analyse its benefits, as well as mental barriers to change. It will allow you to identify the essential components to develop the skill of adaptability in a way that is effective. An experienced facilitator will guide you through a reflective self-discovery. You will explore practical tips for applying adaptability in your own life and have an opportunity to create a personal action plan.
