    Invitation to the next 31.1.18 NeHRa event Teal Organisations

    Our next meeting will be held on Thursday, January 31st, 2018.  This event will be hosted by Chantal Cabuy, NeHRa member working at Cofinimmo.

    Special guest speaker is Beatrice Meulders, a renowned expert in the matter of Teal Organisations.

     

     

    HR Professionals nowadays are highly challenged by a stressed professional world within a complex & fast evolving society.  On one side, there is more than ever a high pressure for profitability and constant changes within organisations, and on the other side, a deep quest to find environments that respects the workers’ life project and search for happiness.  HR professionals are at the heart of the challenge: finding the delicate balance between the mission & objectives of an organisation and those of the individuals.

    This somewhat uncomfortable period offers great opportunities to develop new visions and sustainable actions. Some of those new paradigms are at the basis of what is called “Teal Organisations”, as described in F. Laloux’s book “Reinventing Organisations”.  They meet those of Organisation Libérées developed by I. Getz. 

    We invite you to join us for a journey into this new world:

    • What are Teal Organisations or Organisation Libérées?
    • Why is it interesting to know more about those?
    • Wat impact could those new approaches & paradigms have on our HR activities? 
    • Can we get inspired?  Is this the future?

     

    Béatrice Meulders has developed a strong Human Resources expertise in several types of organizations & sectors.  Today she is Shared HR Expert, Trainer & Facilitator.  She is certified in NLP & Holacracy, and Trained Facilitator of LegoÒ Serious PlayÒmethod & material.  Specialized in Teal Organizations practices, her DNA is to promote ethical, sustainable, innovative & affordable HR environments.

    Invitation to the NeHRa event of June 12th :

    Dear Ladies,

     

    Our next meeting will be held on Monday June 12, 2017.  This event will be hosted byRight Management.

    Special guest speaker is Veronika Wuyts, one of our members and author of the book “Goed Bezig Checkup” (Doing well checkup).

    Please confirm your attendance via the NeHRa website by June 4 at the latest. As the number of places is limited to 50, attendance will be possible on a first come, first serve basis.

     

    WHY this talk:

    There is a lot of talk these days about limiting burnout and promoting employee empowerment. However, managers are often at a loss as how to prevent burnout and how to promote empowerment.

    The 9 practical guidelines from the “Goed Bezig Checkup” can support both these endeavors. All based on well-known coaching and management models; they have been reworked for personal use and for managers so that they can inspire their employees.

     

    HOW:

    Often one is told to empower people, but not so often how you are supposed to do it.

    In this talk Veronica will focus on how to support your HR clients with ways to inspire and invite the employee in taking his/her work-life balance in his/her own hands instead of just sitting and waiting for a solution to be offered to them.

     

    WHAT:

    Tools are offered to keep ahead of one’s career in an empowered way:

    - Taking stock: reflect on your career, and then take responsibility for it in a more structured and guided way

    - Looking forward: “dreaming the possible”, what is at stake, what do I want?

    - Keeping up the good work: communicating, prioritizing

    Let’s try one out one of the 9 practical guides, here and now!

    Invitation to our next event on April 19th 2017: Intercultural management

    Dear Ladies,

    Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, April the 19th of 2017. This event will be hosted by Chantal Cabuy, NeHRa member working at Cofinimmo, Boulevard de la Woluwe, Woluwedal, 58, at 1200 Brussels.  

     

    Topic: Intercultural Management presented by Prof. Marie-Therese Claes

    For the modern day leader, the interdependence of nations and hyper-connectedness of experiences provide a source of great opportunities. Yet, these go hand-in-hand with great challenges, given the immense technological, methodological, social and cultural differences between nations.

    It is important for business professionals to be able to embrace the wider world and recognize the value in cultural diversity. Appropriate leadership conduct varies widely across cultures, and in fact there is no one best way of managing in a global environment. 

    Key points:

    • There is no one best way of managing in a global environment
    • Management styles and practices are diverse
    • The need to develop cultural intelligence
    • Cosmopolitanism and identity

     

    Professor Dr. Marie-Thérèse Claes gained broad expertise in inter-cultural management, diversity management and global leadership. She is Director of the International Executive MBA at Louvain School of Management in Belgium and also works as consultant and professor in Europe, Asia and in the United States.

    Psychopaths/sociopaths at the workplace

     Dear Ladies,

    Our next meeting will be held on Monday, 25 April 2016 (event canceled on 23 November 2015). This event will be hosted by Eubelius.  

     

    Topic

    Psychopaths/sociopaths at the workplace

     Speakers

     

    - Katya Sokolsky, SVP Group Social Policy at AccorHotels  France

    - Liesbet Vandenplas, senior attorney at the law firm Eubelius

    - Sarah Ghislain, attorney at the law firm Eubelius

    Just as in private life, people are not always behaving as they appear to behave at the workplace. Some behavior acted out covertly or in a more or less open and more or less tolerated way, can turn professional life into a real nightmare for peers, subordinates or even bosses of that person.

    As an HR Director since many years, Katya Sokolsky has first-hand experience of such matters. She also did further research on this topic. She will be sharing experience and research with you.

    Liesbet Vandenplas and Sarah Ghislain have been consulted by employers, coworkers and subordinates of persons with psychopathic/sociopathic behavior at the workplace. They will tackle what can be done about this from a legal viewpoint.

    How to improve social relations in your company?

    Our next meeting will be held on Thursday, March 17th, 2016.  This event will be hosted by our member Lynn Coutigny and Right Management:

    How to improve social relations in your company?

    Special guest speaker is Manou Doutrepont, a renowned expert in this matter.

     

    Let’s ask the question concerning social dialogue:  “what is your legacy?”

    The HRM asking this question is an entrepreneur who does not just want to undergo rules or unions.

    But how do you do that?

    In this session we will discuss the vision, the objectives, the values, the activities and the processes that contribute to a social dialogue being more co-operative and less conflictual, more a lever of change than a resistance to adaptations.

    It is more a matter of insight than of knowledge, of competencies than tips and tricks, of perseverance than of intuition, of courage than of slyness.

    The basis is trust, a quality of the organization that is built thanks to the input of every person in it.
