Develop Resilience

You probably have seen colleagues who seem to sail through rough times. Whether they experience job loss, financial set-backs, or health issues, they seem to bounce back easily. What is it that sets these people apart? Resilience is the ability of people to cope with stress and crisis, and then rebound quickly. Highly resilient people have stress-resistant personalities. They don't fall apart during crisis; they're able to cope well with adversity.

Resilience is not developed overnight. It’s the result of numerous factors and life experiences.

This training will explain the components of resilience, how it affects our daily lives and why it’s so important in today’s world. Participants will learn to recognize, assess and promote resilience in themselves and others.

Are You Career-Future Ready?

Disruption affects every industry and job role – and in this current climate, we are moving towards a future where almost half of jobs that exist today will disappear by 2020. In other words, there will be many more new jobs created that do not exist at this current moment.

Whilst many businesses and individuals intuitively understand the need to be prepared for the change, how many really understand what is required for the future? How do we know that we are on the right track? What do we have to do to know that we are on the right track?  This session will give you insights on ensuring that you are ready for the future.

Re-Design Your Career Roadmap

In this era of disruption, many individuals who have been suddenly displaced from long-term careers are at a total loss, not knowing what they want or need in a career. Using Design Thinking, a mindset-shifting methodology, individuals can be empowered to understand their personal career preferences, understand the current economic climate and therefore develop actionable plans to move towards the future with regards to their career development. This session gives you an introduction to what design thinking is, and how you can use design thinking to chart your way out of a career crisis, in a way that fulfils your own values and aspirations.

Step Out of Singapore To Laos

Globalisation is accelerating at a pace faster than we have ever witnessed in all of history.  As the world becomes more connected, job opportunities are opening up rapidly in emerging markets that beckon to those who possess experience in developed economies with their best practices in many arenas.

It is now time for Singaporean professionals to look beyond the Singapore market in their career development – at emerging markets where their skills are much needed.  Hear it from the business owners of Lao and Cambodia, where they will share about how their countries are developing, their business culture and the job opportunities (and skill sets) that would be valuable to their country.
