Handle transitions safely and successfully!

Global economic and political changes in dynamics and complexity also have a regional impact on companies and organizations of all kinds. The ability to adapt and change is becoming increasingly important and increasingly a key competence. Change has always caused insecurity and fears. In times of change, there is an increasing inconsistency: the old ceases to exist – the new, however, is not there yet. For many executives and employees, the transition becomes an ordeal.


In this seminar, the participants deal with the following questions, taking account of cognitive-behavioral theories (KVT): How to deal with uncertainty, complexity, and contradictions (ambiguities)? How can one remain emotionally stable and relaxed in the confusion of the rapidly changing world? 

The participants learn …

… that insecurity does not need to be an enemy but also a friend

… how to stay calm even in uncertain situations

… how to overcome the negative mental cinema

… why contradictions let one’s own character mature
