Instructor Bio

In the future, only organizations that invest in the holistic well-being of their employees will succeed. While working in an internationally operating matrix organization, I understood the significant impact of organizational culture and leadership styles on people's commitment, motivation, and well-being. Through my own survival and post-traumatic growth, I realized the importance of mental flexibility as a valuable resource. I understood the significance of the thoughts one has in one's life and how one can face and manage various emotions. In my role as a resilience coach, these two central themes for the workplace come together: promoting holistic well-being in workplaces and adopting self-leadership skills for life's challenges.
