BE THE CHANGE &
RISE & SHINE MINI-LABS
Mini-Labs are a way for you to experience elements of our Rise & Shine Lab In Company.
Join us for a series of introductory workshops focused on the art of connection and appreciation. These will be delivered in-person in Amsterdam.
Strong healthy connections in life and work lead to greater well-being. Creating and cultivating these connections is an art that needs to be practiced and done with intention.
Being well and feeling good at work does not simply depend on completing tasks and reaching goals, but especially on the quality of relationships. We are at our best when we feel valued, supported, and safe.
The Art of Connection
This Mini-Lab will focus on ways to be in closer connection with people in your work. Being aware of and expressing our own feelings, needs, and desires are a prerequisite for healthy connection with others, just as empathy and good listening skills are essential.
Main emphasis of the Mini-Lab will be on:
Together we will explore the question: 'How can I strengthen my skills to create and encourage greater collaboration and teamwork?' using the experiences and wisdom of all participants at the workshop.
The Art of Appreciation
We often emphasise what is not going well and improving our weak spots, rather than seeking out the seeds that are sprouting and encouraging growth.
This Mini-Lab will focus on how you can discover, value, and develop your strengths and mine the good through the art of appreciation. By looking at what is working, appreciating our own gifts, and encouraging one another in our strengths, we help each another grow and flourish. This does not mean denying problems or challenges, but focusing our energy on learning and growing through them by harnessing our strengths.
Main emphasis of this Mini-Lab will be on building appreciative inquiry skills and reflection tools for gaining greater (self) awareness of strengths and the ability to generate ideas and possibilities.
