C-level executives today need a different skillset to deal with the current business realities. What abilities and behaviours do organisations need in their leaders – now and in the future?
How to stay motived and thrive in the pandemic
While many business were surprised at how much they achieved during the first wave of remote working due to COVID-19, they are now faced with growing levels of (ZOOM) fatigue and employee overwhelm.
Collectively we are wondering how to deal with the ‘long middle’ of disruption and its after-effects, how to refocus, re-energize and find purpose in 2021, as we have to navigate further into new ways of doing things.
Amongst other things, participants of this webinar will find out about:
– The Stockdale Paradox – and how being either too optimistic or pessimistic in times of uncertainty can get you killed
– What to focus on for yourself and your team in the coming months to stay motivated and energised
– Some surprising statistics about how men vs. women are coping with the current mental health pressures and how important recovery is for performance
– How to move from merely surviving to possibly thriving in the coming months by employing an ‘Organisational Growth Mindset’ as well as modern motivation triggers like Autonomy and Purpose

What is a growth mindset? A growth mindset is around the idea that you can grow, if you put in the effort you put in the work, you can get better. It's not about proving, it's about improving. It's about getting better at what you're doing, compared to yourself, not to others. Improve your own performance over time. It's about developing skills. So you're trying to look for learning and sort of getting better and performing better over time performing better than you did before.
How to function and be productive in times of challenges? As human beings are one of the most complex systems there is, we need certain levels of stress to make us better, to make us perform better, to make us learn. We've all heard these kinds of expressions that say you're rising to the challenge, and rising means you know, you're stepping up. You're becoming more of yourself. (...) When our brains represent change as a challenge, we get a very different pattern of results. We naturally focus on solving the problem, we are more future-focused, we keep our eyes on the goal, we have the momentum to go forward.
Focus on progress over time and celebrate and reward improvement rather than performance. Marieluise Maiwald
