In this training tasting we will look at some of the “Why?” behind using more story-like elements in your presentation design, as well as the “How?” by doing some practical activities to begin building something you can use in your workshops, lectures, conference presentations, or teaching activities.

Job Satisfaction (NL)

One of the most important aspects of job satisfaction and work fun is the noticeable improvement of our capacities. Nevertheless, we are sometimes fed up with learning. For example, because we think we should be able to do everything in one go, because we have sky-high expectations or compare ourselves to others. The way in which we look at our own development (growth mindset) appears crucial here. In this workshop you will become acquainted with your own mindset and its influence on how you learn. In addition, you get a first-hand guide to grow with more relaxation.
