Your brain builds new roads everyday.
Let’s take a walk

We see that many organisations find themselves on a “tipping point”. Rapid and constant change is becoming the new ‘norm’. Over the coming years many jobs (and sectors) under pressure from technological innovation and economic competition, will transform or disappear. While, at the same time, new jobs and forms of work will quickly grow. This new world of permanent change demands different emotional and social skills from the people that live and work in it. Employees and managers must be resilient and agile if they want to flourish in a context of permanent change. However, resilience and agility are just two examples of the many skills of today and tomorrow that people (will) need in their working life
