Erlebe deine Zukunft & dein Potenzial

Mit dem langfristigen Denken können Jugendliche besser mit Krisen umgehen. Diese Denkweise ist lernbar mit der Methode der persönlichen Zukunftsgestaltung. Im Workshop werden die aktuellsten Studien mit der bewährten Vorgehensweise aus der Zukunftsforschung kombiniert. Der Ansatz besteht aus drei Schritten:

- Einen Rahmen mit Informationen über das eigene Leben schaffen.
- Die eigenen Zukunftsszenarien aus diesem Rahmen heraus entwickeln.
- Eine Vision, Strategien und Aktionspläne für die Zukunft definieren.

Shaping your agile future (by coaching)

As AI increasingly allow human workers to focus on more complex tasks that require creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration (also known as the four Cs), trainers and coaches need to anticipate new ways of supporting the system (in an organization, in a school or on personal level). Attendees of this plenary will discover interdisciplinary training/coaching
tools, which they could easily integrate in their practices for one-to-one coachings (leadership, development or any other purpose).
At the beginning, we will navigate 4 faces of coaches based on two uncertainties in engagement types. Then, an adapted "personal futures" Model created by Mr. Wheelchair will be presented. Afterwards three proven technics From Silicon Valley will radically open a new perspective not only for the attendees but also for their customers. The science of behind (4 faces of coaches, the adapted model and the 3 proven technics) is based on foresight practices used on business environment mainly since 1960s.

Attendees will be able to find themselves under the 4 faces of coaches, although the focus will be a voluntary and advising type of coaching session. The adapted model will provide a structured way of dealing with an existing, arising, probable or possible challenge on personal level. Integration of emotional aspects into the model based on insights from Atlas of Emotions by Paul Ekmann plays a big role in the whole picture of human.
Last but not least, come the three technics originating from Silicon Valley companies. When Silicon Valleys narrative is "changing the world" the coaches or trainers narrative should be "embrace change inside out and outside in".
At the end of entertaining, surprising and insightful session the discussion will shift from now to multiple futures (probable, possible and desired). A number of simple, interdisciplinary, adaptable tools will provide value to the audience.
