Your mind is your best friend, but it can also be your worst enemy.

“I will never succeed under these circumstances”, “Why don’t my stakeholders get back to me!!!” “Why do I have to do everything on my own!!”

Inner thoughts of frustration, anger, anxiety (“Saboteurs”) are voices in our heads that generatestress and negative emotions in the way we handle our work, and in our life. They sabotage our potential for both performance and happier life, and make the process towards success a hard one, both professionally and personally.

Such situations might be more frequent when working with cross-cultural teams or individuals in China. Common issues faced by European leaders and business professionals include how to manage a Chinese organisation or a Chinese team, being managed by a Chinese manager, or working with Chinese stakeholders; and vice versa.

The EU SME Centre and the Danish Chamber of Commerce in China are pleased to invite you to attend this interactive workshop on mental fitness for executives, leaders and managers of EU companies, during which leadership coaches Lena Hoerlyk Petersen and Eike Westerholt will train your ability and grow your capacity to respond to challenges with a positive mindset, rather than a negative one. And improve your potential.

Specifically, during this event you will discover:

  • What is holding you back – how you sabotage yourself, and what is causing this
  • How you can quiet negative, inner voices and get the upper hand in situations of stress, anxiety, frustration, and conflict.
  • How you can build mental strength and improve performance, relationships with people important to you in your business, and wellbeing at work and in your life.
