Workshop: Identify your Values and Strengths for a Happier, more Fulfilled Life

By Andy Whittle

Brussels: 14 September 2016

Your values are the things that you believe are important in the way you live and work.

They (should) determine your priorities and, deep down, they’re probably the measures you use to tell if your life is turning out the way you want it to.

Your strengths are a mixture of your talents, knowledge and skills. The theory behind strengths is based on positive psychology: everyone has strengths they are born with but few people know what these are.

If there is a good match between personal strengths and job demands, you are more likely to be satisfied with your work and experience positive emotions.

The aim of this Values and Strengths session is to inspire you to maybe think differently about what you want from work, to see if your strengths and values are aligned and to see if changes can and should be made

The results may surprise you…..

Travel Writing Walk in Brussels

By Miriam Tessens

Brussels: 20 September 2016

Do you like travelling? Do you like writing? Then join the Imagination Club on a travel writing walk through Brussels.

You don’t have to go scuba diving at the Bahamas or listen to the waves on a tropical island to produce a splendid piece of travel writing.

You can do travel writing just as well at home! Walking through Brussels is a journey in itself where you can experience awe, fascination, disgust or surprise, just like on your holiday.

When we are in another country we take in beautiful and fascinating details, but we never notice them at home.

The aim of this travel writing walk is to give you some inspiration through several exercises at three particular stops, and to have fun on the way. Because in the end, it’s not the destination (or the end result) that counts.

We will meet at the Central Station where our trip will start…

What to Bring

Please bring a pen and paper or notebook!

About Miriam Tessens

Workshop: Define Your Own Brand

By Jana Gál

Brussels: 28 September 2016

This workshop is for everyone who actively maintains a professional life: freelancers, small business owners, employees and anyone else with a profession.

How do you make yourself stand out from the crowd? You concentrate on your strengths!

Stop desiring to be like others and ask yourself (as I did recently): what is within you that you can offer to the world?

During this workshop you will find that answer as well as answers to…

What is personal branding good for?
Why is it interesting for employees?
How do I define my personal brand?
Shall I do my own marketing too?
Do you know your own value proposition? If not, come to the workshop and learn how to create it.
