After a tumultuous year with many ups and downs for companies as well as individuals, we together with SwedCham China and FinnCham Shanghai are glad to present this workshop on positive intelligence, teaching you self-management and how to gain a positive perspective on challenges.

Your mind is your best friend, but it can also be your worst enemy: "I will never succeed under these circumstances","Why don't my stakeholders get back to me?" and "Why do I have to do everything on my own!!" are all common examples of inner thoughts of frustration, anger and anxiety. These so called "Saboteurs" are voices in our heads that generate stress and negative emotions in the way we handle our work, and in our life. They sabotage our potential for both performance and a happier life, and make the process towards success a hard one, both professionally and personally. Such situations might be more frequent when working with cross-cultural teams.

Common issues faced by leaders and business professionals in an international environment include how to manage a local organization or a local team, being managed by a local manager, working with local stakeholders, and vice versa.

We are pleased to invite you to this interactive workshop on mental fitness for executives, leaders, and managers of companies, during which leadership coaches Lena Hoerlyk Petersen and Eike Westerholt will train your ability and grow your capacity to respond to challenges with a positive mindset, rather than a negative one - and improve your potential at the same time.

During this event you will discover:

  • What is holding you back? How you sabotage yourself, and what is causing this?
  • How you can quiet negative, inner voices and get the upper hand in situations of stress, anxiety, frustration, and conflict.
  • How you can build mental strength and improve performance, relationships with people important to you in your business, and wellbeing at work and in your life.
