How will we organise work tomorrow?
COVID-19 sent a an electric shock through traditional workplaces. The sudden, almost overnight experience of having people working from home has inspired many companies to redesign the workplace. What have we learned from the global working from home experiment? How will the future of the office look like? What are best practices and what pitfalls should we avoid? How do we manage hybrid teams and organizations?
How leaders can build trust and purpose in times of change
The true test of leadership is steering an organization through turbulence.
In times of rapid change, leaders need to build trust and a common sense of purpose. Authentic communication, appreciative listening, behavioral integrity and rapid updating of mental models are key building blocks to achieving these goals.
Mental health and resilience in the workplace
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a heavy toll on global mental health and has paved a path for a revolution in the workplace.
As companies prepare for a postpandemic return to the workplace, identifying mental health risks, setting up early detection and support systems, and raising leadership awareness have become business priorities. Employee mental health and resilience is at top of the C-suite agenda.

Pandemics have always shaken up society. They accelerate change and create new ways of thinking. Now is the time for organizations to prepare for fundamental changes to come.

Mix and match any of the SuperPowers for this keynote: Learning to learn - Moral compass - Digital mastery – Superconnections - Seeing around corners - Community voices - Becoming human.
For me, the real power of a nexxworks tour is the unique group of people you meet and travel with.
The tour founded relationships with interesting people I otherwise would've never met.
The mix of speakers and content was perfect.
It was truly an eye-opening experience that both enriched my network with amazing people and helped me shape the further direction of my career.
The things you hear, see and learn are a source of inspiration and motivation for the future. We have already implemented some of these in our current strategy and operations.
Nexxworks helps to facilitate innovative out of the box thinking. They will expose you and your teams to a different level of thought leadership, which in turn will help you and your people develop a different thinking ethos for the future.
The nexxworks inspiration series helps us to imagine the future together with all the teams worldwide, and make the bridge to our day-to-day challenges as well.
The nexxworks inspiration sessions were that mindblowing, that I invited my global team to taste, smell and learn via a similar experience.
Meeting today’s companies and speakers brought us refreshing energy and perspectives to our challenges today.
This experience showed how short-term planning and long term planning are both needed. The China visits were truly inspiring in how they execute on that.
It’s so important to step outside the day-to-day business. We are the only ones who can moderate this back to our teams and translate what we’ve learned to accomplish our daily goals.
To new travelers, I hope you feel some of the same excitement, anxiety, and concentration. May you learn the way we did.
We’ve seen great concepts and initiatives from other companies, that made us think outside the box.
We want to make sure that the wonderful company that our family started, remains relevant in a fast-pace changing world.
I view the nexxworks membership as a combination of inspiration, practical insights, and networking with peers.
