I’ll share some of my own experiences with change… what worked, what didn’t… and most important: what I learned on that journey.
Given some sort of crisis: can you relate to that ambiguous desire to “actually do something” while, at the same time, feeling an urge to “just hide under a blanket until this is over”? I can.
Crises always bear something new, something that wants to be uncovered and tended… besides all the easily visible “unwanted” things that come
along. When we humans find ourselves in uncertainty, we all too often find ourselves oscillating somewhere between ‘numbing’ and ‘over-action’.
So, as change supporters, as leaders, what can we do?
What can I myself do to support other human beings through change?
What can I do, is a question I asked myself A LOT of times “just for work” with teams in organizations. Now in a crisis of a magnitude like the ongoing pandemic this question got a whole different scope.
This keynote will take you on a little journey, I’ll share some of my own experiences with change… what worked, what didn’t… and most important: what I learned on that journey.
Be prepared to do less… and be more.
Ask not what my organization can do for me...
Cosima Laube's formula for change support resonated with the audience, with me and the times. Her experience and ability to present us with the essence of being present, being open and doing what matters, was moving.
A fantastic start of the conference.
Demonstrating Leadership Transparency & Vulnerability
Thank you for sharing of yourself and clearly showing how courage matters. Your formula and small practical advice has big impact.
Thanks for being so open about your struggles. It's always great and comforting to hear that others exeprience these kind of things too. I'm also on the path of “supporting myself first” and your talk was very inspiring.
Thanks for your honesty
That was a great keynote and thank you so much Cosima for the topic mindfulness as a starter for the Women in Agile and that you shared your very personnel experiences and your practices on your journey with us.
Empathetic, emotional talk as a great start into the conference
I enjoyed Cosimas talk very much. The formula is easy to remember, makes so much sense to me and shows what really matters. I am very motivated to start the little excersises she mentioned.
Thanks for being so open and showing up and being so present, Cosima.
