If you support change in organizations it is inevitable that you will be deeply affected by the change processes you are involved in.  It is extremely important that you can rely on a solid personal foundation for optimal personal health and balance. You need to have self awareness to maintain a mentoring role so that the system can access its own wisdom. You need to to take time for self care, time to breathe and reflect.

The Individual Health & Balance workshop is a chance to build capacity to work with change as a leader and as an individual. It addresses emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health. The Medicine Wheel Tool© is used as a framework to explore your own state of health and balance and to look at improvements you wish to do. A focus in the workshop is on strengthening self empowerment and self love and learning how to manage personal energy and how to maintain a state of optimal health in stressful situations.



Doris Gottlieb (The Netherlands), Thomas Herrmann (Sweden), and Anna Caroline Türk (Germany) are joining forces to offer this training. They are highly dedicated to this approach and invest much of their energy in the development of the Genuine Contact Program and have worked closely with Birgitt and Ward Williams, founders of the Genuine Contact Program, for almost two decades.

Working together, they each bring their own specific strengths, expertise and practical insights, to provide you with a rich and varied learning experience. They teach in English, Swedish, German, Dutch, and Spanish.

As consultants they have assisted organizations such as Volvo, Etsy, World Wildlife Fund, Soundcloud, City of Gothenburg, Stena Line and the Karolinska Institute, Emancipator, in learning and applying the Genuine Contact approach to increase organizational success.
