Webinar: Coaching with Humour, seriously!?

18 May 2023

We can use humour in coaching? 

Jannie Stricker, MSc and I think that yes, we can. However, we should laugh responsibly.

In this workshop, run for the Institute of Positive Psychology Coaching (IPPC), we explore the different roles of smiles, laughter, humour and playfulness and how we can align them with coaching core competencies in our coaching practice.

Thanks to Meriflor Toneatto, Petra Walker and the IPPC for inviting us.

World Happiness Summit WoHaSu2023

24-26 March 2023 in Como, Italy

The World Happiness Summit moved to Europe for the first time in March 2023 and to the beautiful town of Como, Italy. Apart from enjoying inspirational speeches around all things wellbeing and positive psychology in a great venue, I also had the opportunity to work as a #wohasu2023 coach.

The 3 days were incredibly rich in content, and you can find several posts and blog articles on my LinkedIn page and in my blog here. 

A big thank you to Mariana Pineda, Karen Guggenheim and Dr. Cree Scott and the entire Wohasu team for making this happen.

Resilience across populations and contexts - MEPA panel discussion

9-11 March 2023

We are still counting the cost and impact on resilience after the pandemic, geopolitical and economic upheavals with no end in sight, be it in families, schools, society or the workplace.

How stress and challenges are experienced, depends on context and population, among other. And thus, maintaining or rebuilding resilience needs different approaches, too.

At this year's MEPA Annual Conference in Kuwait, I'm delighted to be moderating this panel discussion with Dr Saddiga Al-Ghalib , Dr Maria Weissenboeck , Anna Kaminski M.A. Psych. and Roberta Pagliarulo. We will explore resilience from different perspectives, for example neurodiversity, childhood, cultural contexts like faith or social connections and the workplace.
