Breaking the Silos

Breaking the Silos: Seeing Problems as Opportunities

Wednesday 25 October 2023, 18:00 CEST — Teamleader, Ghent
Too late! This is a past event.

Are you mainly deterred or attracted to risk? Do risks at work keep you up at night, or are you excited to jump into them the next working day?

In times of rapid and unexpected change, there are unexpected opportunities and possibilities, if you can see the upside of risk instead of the potential downside.

A radical open-minded, curious and courageous mindset is needed to learn and thrive in this environment. If you are really willing to challenge yourself and change your own mindset, this is the mini-conference for you.

Breaking the Silos: Seeing Problems as Opportunities is happening on Wednesday 25 October 2023 as of 18:00 CEST in the Teamleader offices, Dok-Noord 3A/101, 9000 Ghent. Food and drinks will be available.
