20 April – The Art of Self-Coaching

This evening workshop is intended to all those who are in search of effective and practical tools that can help them in situations where they currently feel stuck and in those where they want to improve and achieve excellence.

In this workshop, we aim to share with you a combined experience of over 40 years in the field of NLP, Coaching (individual and executive) and Personal Development. The techniques and methodologies we will share with you, have helped us take our lives to the level we never before thought possible, and they continue to help our clients reach new heights in both personal and work contexts.

So, if you are eager to learn practical techniques that you can implement immediately, come and join us in this interactive, fun and useful workshop, where you experience first and draw conclusions based on the experience, where your skills are built through experience, rather than through theory.

16 March – Step into the arena of your life

In this interactive workshop we will explore how embracing vulnerability supports living bravely, showing up and being seen, based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown.

Dr. Brené Brown, Ph.D. LMSW, is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past twelve years studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame. She is the author of The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly and Rising Strong.

In the first part of the workshop we will focus on the metaphor of “stepping into the arena of your life”. You’ll discover what vulnerability means and how your relationship with vulnerability impacts where and how you show up in your life.

In the second part we focus on what you need to step into the arena. We explore shame, empathy, clarity of values and support.

Are you ready to dare greatly? Then this workshop is for you!

anndanielsAnn Daniels loves to fail forward and to go on intensive learning journeys. This has lead her to become a Certified Professional Co-active Coach, a Certified Daring Way Facilitator and one of the founders of The Fail Forward movement. Her life mission is to empower people to unlock their full potential.

In order to get where she is now, Ann had to forget most of what she learned in school and at university because it triggered her perfectionism and got her into burn-out at 27. This was her biggest failure till now and it pushed her to embrace vulnerability as courage, to realize that perfectionism is actually a way of shielding vulnerability, and to see failing as part of learning and playing big with and in life.

16 December – Completion of 2015 and Laughter Yoga

Our last Yes Group event of this year will consist of 2 parts: Completion and Laughter Yoga.

Completion is a critical phase of every creation. It frees you of what is true to let go of, so that you can assign your focus and energy creating the new. I will lead you through a completion exercise so that you can get clearer on what you would love to create in 2016 and reassign your energy to the new year.

Laughter Yoga is both simple and profound. Don’t worry, you don’t need to get into complicated poses, though casual clothing may make laughing easier 😉 It is a combination of deep breathing exercises from yoga and laughter exercises, which oxyginate our body and brain, making us feel more healthy and energetic. The body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter, and research has shown that laughter releases endorphins and lowers the level of stress hormones in the blood. The session will be lead by Christiane Moeschler, who is a certified Laughter Yoga facilitator.

Tickets: €10 via Fikket or Meetup, €15 at the door

When: ​​​16 December​​​​​, welcome from 1​9h​​, start at 19h30
Where:​ Gemeenschapscentrum Kontakt, Room 3, Orbanlaan 54, 1150 Sint-Pieters-Woluwe
Metro: ​​Stokkel, from there you can walk or take tram 39. Bus 36 stops close as well.

I hope to see you there to celebrate 2015!

10 September – Aboriginal Wisdom for our Modern World

With the kids going back to school, Yes Group is back as well after a short Summer break! As always we are here to inspire you with personal development workshops and – more importantly – to support each other to apply what we learn. The pace and format of our events might change slightly moving forward, more on that later. One thing is for sure, after last year’s success, several new mastermind groups are in preparation.

As you might know, we have the tradition of a “birthday edition” workshop in September (i.e. the 10th is my birthday and I celebrate by being the speaker myself). This year I decided to mix it up a bit, as we had the rare opportunity to have Roseline Deleu as a speaker – she lives at the other side of the world… It will still be a special one as the subject matter is uncommon and the location is an art gallery! And this means a more relaxing birthday for me 🙂 but don’t worry, I will take my turn one of the coming months. In fact, in the last half year I have been studying ancient philosophies, and their application blew my mind, frankly they are the most powerful wisdom I have seen sofar, they feel like the missing pieces of the personal development puzzle to me. Interestingly, through her experience with the Aboriginals, Roseline is familiar with some of these (e.g. intuition and shamanism) as well.

Born in Belgium, Roseline Deleu moved Down Under 18 years ago, and life has never been the same again! From the corporate world in Europe, she now resides in the Red Centre of Australia with Aboriginal Australians. With her stories Roseline brings suggestions for another outlook on your life today, in the modern world. Yes, it is possible to live here with less stress, combining family, work, and leisure, and aligning yourself with a higher purpose. We are like diamonds, we have many facets – they make us shine. Let’s unravel your hidden facets, allow the sun to shine through and bring a rainbow in your life.

Roseline Deleu

We are happy to be able to host this event among wonderful Aboriginal paintings of the Aboriginal Signature Gallery in Koekelberg. You will be able to admire artwork of the First Australians, feel the vibrations of the Aboriginal wisdom and this most ancient culture of the world.

So join us for this year’s special “birthday edition” that will stimulate all your senses! Reserve your seat straightaway via our Fikket page, €15 if booked *and paid* in advance.

15 July – The three fulcrums of change: using New Code NLP to create lasting change

Our performance is state dependent. Our actions are guided by our intentions. And our behavior is generated to a large extent by the unconscious.

If you are in a lousy state you will not perform well, but if you are in a good state you will act exquisitely. If you set your intentions wisely, your actions will be more beneficial. And if your conscious mind interacts well with your unconscious mind – you will have the most powerful ally imaginable: YOURSELF.

For 25 years state, intention and the unconscious have been central to New Code NLP. After attending this workshop you will be able to use these three variables as fulcrums of change.

19 May – Sense and nonsense about your life and your mission

Your work / career / mission is one of the most important aspects of your life.
