    Invitation to the next 12.03.19 NeHRa event “Being an organization fit for the future and fit for human beings, renewal through co-creation with the eco-system”

    Dear Ladies,

    Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, 12 March, 2019.  This event will be hosted by Laurence Vanhée at LoftOffiz.

     

     

     

    Special guest speaker is Laurent Provost, responsible for the transformation at Saint-Gobain Mobility Bearings.

    6 years ago, Laurent was asked to take over the Managing Director role of a site based in Willich, Germany. Although the business was the market leader with profitable growth, he shared the need to reinvent the organization.

    Traditional organizations sometimes breed the engagement of only a group of ‘happy few’ who concentrate responsibilities to take initiatives, make decision and lead their colleagues.

    They assumed that virtually everything about the way they did business had to change and felt ready to experiment many new and soulful practices.

    The Making a big difference transformation process was launched in 2013.

    Bearings is a successful business. There was no sense of urgency to change and they had to build a compelling vision to inspire teams, especially the key stakeholders, to embrace such a transformation. The pride of the team and the desire to make a difference for the business, for the teams and for every single employee, have helped them to create the momentum.

    This process is shaping the business into a customer centric and highly innovative organization, every global or local team into a dynamic and collaborative force, and every person in the business into a key contributor.

    This change requires every one of us to adapt and change personally as some of our beliefs, responsibilities and comfort zones are being challenged.

    Laurent will share with us how a circular organization can bring a combination of autonomy, a sense of purpose and the growth of personal skills and contribution into every employee’s job.

    Join us and share on how to become an organization fit for the future and fit for human beings.

    In your role as an HR “lady” of 2019 and a member of Nehra, faced to a volatile and complex environment, you probably strive to be more forceful, more successful, or to gain more alignment and achieve more meaning in what you do. Don’t wait any longer! Participate to this workshop. It will free your still un-accessed inner potential and you will get in touch with the person you really strive to become.

    Having gained access to this inner potential, you will project yourself into the future of the HR force: What are the purpose and role(s) of the HR leaders of tomorrow? What is the future role of an organization like Nehra, in this evolving context?

    We will support you in your discovery path by using the Lego Serious Play method. You will waken up the power of your imagination and your building skills. You will experiment a new form of reflection and creativity favored by the use of metaphors. You will have access to more resources and a more complete vision of yourself.

    The Lego Serious Play method exists since 1995. Research has proven that the method increases creativity and enables access to a broader spectrum of opportunities. It has been used successfully by a large number of corporates.

    Invitation to the next 05.06.18 NeHRa event : The Global Quality of Life Optimization concept

    Dear Members

    Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 5th, 2018.  This event will be hosted by our member Lynn Coutigny, from Right Management  and will take place in the Right Management premises in Woluwé-Brussels.

    Our special guests speakers will be Jean-Denis Budin, founder of CREDIR andPresident of CREDIR Research Instituteand Anne Pinchart, President of CREDIR Training.

    CREDIR is a training and research center for business professionals in transition phases.

    CREDIR comes from the Latin verb “CREDERE”: to believe again in oneself.

    Lives are made of ups and downs.  Sport athletes  do train in order to win. Professionals at work don't, while in transition phases energy and support are needed.

    ​CREDIR has created a scientific approach to train working individuals at various levels (professional, medico-physical and human) with the support of Peers and Experts.

    Since 2013, CREDIR welcomes professionals every month for residential training of 3 days. As a result,  more than 1,000 hours of interviews have already been transcribed (30,000 pages) and analyzed by the CREDIR Research Institute. The concept of Global Quality of Life Optimization  (Qualité de Vie Globale #GVG) was born from these analyzes presented in a book to be published end May 2018 : “Optimisez votre Qualité de Vie Globale”

    Jean Denis has a unique career.  He personally transitioned from being a Managing Director in a large international corporation to become an Entrepreneur. Hit by the 2008 crisis, he transformed a bankruptcy followed by a burnout into a PhD (EDBA from Paris Dauphine University), then founded  CREDIR in Alsace in Kientzheim.

    Anne was a Board member of Citibank in Belgium and holds a management position with BeoBank. She personally went through a difficult transition period. She is an original team member of CREDIR and regularly acts as a Peer during the CREDIR 3-days training sessions. She shared a lot with Jean-Denis when he was working on his research in Paris Dauphine.

    Dear Ladies,

     

    Our next meeting will be held on Thursday May 3th 2018.  This event will be hosted by Martine Berden, NeHRa member working at Deloitte.

     

     

     

     

    Special guest speakers will be Yves Van Durme and Ellen Bernaers, both working at Deloitte, who will take you on a journey towards the future of work.

    During our meeting, time will be foreseen to discover their state of the art building at our Belgian National Airport with in-house fitness, bar, auditorium and plenty of different workspaces.

    Yves grew up in Africa, Ellen worked at a young age in the Middle East, these experiences made our speakers become fascinated about culture.

    In this session we explore our own culture at the edge of disruption. Driven by accelerating connectivity, new talent models, and cognitive tools, work is changing. As robotics, AI, the gig economy and crowds grow, jobs are being reinvented, creating the “augmented workforce.” We must reconsider how jobs are designed and work to adapt and learn for future growth.

    Yves and Ellen will present you a piece of work, prepared by Deloitte global in close cooperation with the Singularity University, a knowledge crossing between digital and HR.

    Yves Van Durme has been leading the Human Capital consulting business in Belgium now for several years, his leadership style is not about management, it’s about creating the right climate for new leaders to grow. Yves is also global culture lead within Deloitte. Ellen focuses on learning within Deloitte and tries to be disruptive every day by bringing in design thinking to resolve customers challenges.

    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.
