Expert Talk: Mehmet Baha – Become Resilient and Antifragile

In times of hybrid work, many employees struggle with managing their stress. The difficulty of disconnecting from work while working from home and trying to juggle personal and work relationships add to this stress. In times of stress or crisis: when we are fragile, our performance goes down. When we are resilient, our performance stays the same. When we are antifragile, our performance increases. In this powerful session, you will learn about inspiring leaders who embrace resilience and antifragility, become familiar with several techniques, and apply practical insights to become resilient and antifragile.

Mehmet Baha

Founder & Senior Consultant @Solution Folder - "Reinventing ourselves, having a possibilities mindset, and dealing with ambiguity are key to building resilience and antifragility."

Expert Talk: Infraspeak – Rejecting to Hire

“How to play the infinite hiring game”

An employee’s experience begins when they first hear about you. Companies can have rejected candidates, yet transform them into ambassadors. How often do we meet the right person at the wrong time? In recruitment processes, it is very common. How do we keep these people close and ready for when the time is right?
In this session, we’ll share how Infraspeak embraces a human-oriented recruitment process that reduces the long-term hiring efforts while building brand loyalty.

Expert Talk: Erik Fredrickson – Practical Solutions For Employee Well-Being and Retention:

In an era where many people in the workforce are leaving their jobs, innovative retention programs are more important than ever. Using the Enneagram, structured feedback, and wellness initiatives, we will explore practical ways business leaders can engage and retain their employees to build stronger teams that find more meaning and connection in their work.

A comprehensive range of strategies will be addressed:

The Enneagram reveals behavior patterns that stem from reactions to our daily

experiences. Once you identify what these patterns are, you will open doors to better communication and understanding of yourself and those you interact with. As you deepen your understanding of these patterns, you may gain important insights into what gets in the way of your happiness and what is possible for you to achieve.

Observation-based feedback enhances decision-making and shows others you value them through listening. With data you collect from a feedback initiative you will find out what is important to others, make more informed decisions from a wider perspective, bring teams and colleagues together, and improve work relationships.

Wellness is one of the greatest prerequisites of performance and productivity, yet many businesses lack a plan to address employee well-being. Learn practical tactics businesses can incorporate to address the growing concerns people have about their own well- being.
