Inclusiveness in practice

dinsdag, maart 27th, 2018

April 26 from 12:00 – 13:30 at Drienerburght

NOTE: this lunch meeting is open for fe/male scientists from University Twente.

The need for diversity (gender, cultural and other) is accepted, and it is easier to only come up with policies and acknowledge that this is important –practice is the difficult one. How do you put your awareness in practice?

In this discussion, we will focus on best practices of inclusion, and pay attention to examples of exclusion and how to deal with them in a positive way.

Creating an inclusive culture takes time, having a dialogue is necessary. Experiencing inclusion or exclusion is not just a matter of measurement and data, it involves personal experiences, and a diversity of possible perceptions. The best way to create a new culture is to co-create it together.

Arielle Brouwer, leadership & communication trainer, career & life coach, and facilitator of innovation, will facilitate the dialogues.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event had to be cancelled on a short notice. A new date will be scheduled.

Leadership skills: dealing with pressure and stress

vrijdag, februari 17th, 2017

Incompany workshop for University of Twente.

for Female Faculty Network members, and academic staff members

          

Leadership skills: dealing with pressure and stress

                                                            March 8 2017 13:00 – 16:00This practical, hands on workshop is set up as a ‘laboratory’ in which you as participant analyze, research and explore what brings you stress and pressure, how it shows up, and what you can do to reduce it and deal with it. You will learn from others, share knowledge and experience. Active participation. Practical exploration in embodied exercises.
Follow up: FFNT in addition offers participants an opportunity for getting an online follow up coaching session.

After the workshop you will have increased insight in what causes you stress and a feeling of pressure, what your favorite ways are to react on it, and you have learned, tried out and chosen for yourself a couple of tools for dealing with your stress and pressure which can directly be applied in practice.

Exercises are based on neuroscientific research, practical wisdom from martial arts and holistic health (Aikido, mindfulness, Qi Gong), tacit embodied knowledge from the theatre (the trainer’s original profession), theory and practice from the field of leadership training (ao Steven Covey), and new science on integral leadership and dealing with increasing complexity (Spiral Dynamics Integral, Integral Theory/Wilber) including the necessarily connected self-development, growth of consciousness and change of mindset, and embodiment (ao Peter Merry, Dylan Newcomb, and the program that Arielle Brouwer developed on SelfChange).

More information about the program and the trainer

Review coaching session:

“Arielle really helped me with her advice on how to get my focus back on my long term goals and ambitions, instead of the short term struggles, which I discovered were (and are) heavily influencing my self-confidence. I have implemented several of her tips and tricks in my routine over the last few weeks, and actually already feel a positive difference. For sure I would recommend a coaching session with Arielle to anyone with similar self-confidence issues (e.g. perfectionism, disappointment about progress)”. – PDEng (post-master trainee Professional Doctorate in Engineering)

Facilitated Dinner: Reinventing Home

dinsdag, november 1st, 2016

                                                        Facilitated Dinner: Reinventing Home

                                         November 18 from 18:00 – 21:00 in Amsterdam

                                                                (on personal invitation only)

img_0756

Arielle’s purpose with Reinventing Home is to sustain as many people as possible in (re)creating their own homefeeling. Some being forced to leave their house and homeland, others being confronted with strangers on their doorstep, many feeling in between cultures, all of us belonging to this one humanity, one earth. How can we foster feeling@home for ourselves and others? How can we reach as many people as possible? Those are the questions for this facilitated dinner.

For this Facilitated Dinner around Reinventing Home, professionals from different domains in society, and with a variety of social, cultural or ethnical backgrounds, will be invited for having tea, a meeting, a workshop, and dinner at my table. We will share stories around what ‘home’ means to us, try out ways to recover from feeling astranged, and explore what we can do to (re)create our home-feeling once we’ve lost it. We’ll discuss how we can support as many people as possible in (re)creating their feeling@home.

The workshop and dinner will be hosted by Arielle Brouwer, trainer, coach, theatre professional, experienced facilitator, and creator of the concept of facilitated dinners, where people connect around a topic that matters, learn, and have fun all at once.

Cost: €35 of which €10 will be donated to a charity foundation which sustains home-feeling; we’ll choose one foundation at the end of the dinner.

If you want to be invited, please send an email.

The workshop also gives a preview of the course ‘Thuis en Vreemd in Verandering’ (Strange and at home in change). Arielle developed the course with her colleague Sietske Dijkstra, initiator&author of Een vreemde thuis (translated book will come out soon). The course ‘Vreemd en Thuis in Verandering’ aims to strengthen professionals in social work and education in their own feeling@home, provides them with practical tools for dealing with ‘the strange’, and teaches them how to empower the people they work with in their homefeeling. It is a course for personal-professional development, and questions: How does the work and the people affect you as a professional and as a person? How can you foster feeling@home for yourself and others?

Coaching Sessions for female scientists UT

maandag, juni 20th, 2016

Members of the Female Faculty Network Twente (FFNT) are invited for a Coaching Session on

July 14 or July 18, 2016

More information and subscription (FFNT members only): FFNT Coaching Sessions 2016

“An individual session with a good coach can make a substantial contribution to your career.”- Prof. Dr. Liudvika Leisyte, professor of Higher Education, TU Dortmund

 

PARTICIPANT’S RECOMMENDATION:

“PhD students often struggle during their research and it sometimes takes just another point of view to help them. As I was in my second year of my PhD path, I began to struggle with what I considered to be motivational problems. I had the chance to make use of a one hour coaching session with Arielle. In this one hour meeting we discussed my questions that I prepared before. Arielle, by visualizing and rephrasing my thoughts, helped me understand the underlying problem of my motivation issues. She also gave me clear tasks and suggestions on how to change my situation. I followed her recommendations and found out that the suggested reasons indeed affected my motivation, and taking the suggested actions helped me find inspiration for further research. I definitely recommend Arielle as a coach!”

Career Lab for female PhD’s

dinsdag, mei 24th, 2016

Career event for female PhD's
May 26th at University of Twente.

Career event for female PhD’s

What do you need to be able to create your own career? What opportunities are available for younger females to close the gender gap and achieve top positions?

These questions are at stake in the Career Lab for female PhD’s, a mixture between a workshop, an informal meeting, and a networking event.

Joint exploration

With 12 to 30 colleagues you will jointly explore what you –individually and collectively- can undertake to advance your career in the desired direction. And what can support you. This event is being organized by P-NUT together with the Female Faculty Network Twente (FFNT), and is created and hosted by Arielle Brouwer.

Taking charge, dynamic steering and resilience

 “In my view, it is extra important in times of insecurity to keep (your own) track, take good care of yourself, share experiences with peers and support each other, and to take charge over your own life and career –which is not the same as planning it. In these times, building a career is more like a dance with the circumstances, the possibilities from the outside in relation to those on the inside of you. In this concept, the essential place for ‘growth’ is in the personal interior development: learn how to deal with the circumstances, make choices and stay healthy and calm.”

Workshop Using your voice

Using your voice

Workshop at the Skills Building Day of IDH

Thursday 17th September 2015

http://www.rcsglobal.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/IDH_logo_staand_blauw_fc.jpg(for employees of IDH)

In this workshop you will work on your professional performance through voice work, combined with body language and embodiment techniques. By means of practical, lively and creative exercises you will learn to present yourself in a convincing and authentic way.

You will experience how it is to make an impact using your voice and body. You will come to see what sort of impression you make on others, explore the impression you would like to make, and do practical exercises designed to align the two. This will allow you to work on your personal leadership skills so that you can speak up and be heard while staying true to yourself.

We will pay attention to differences in interpretation of body language and signs, due to cultural differences.

Ariëlle Brouwer coaches and develops workshops and training courses for professionals focusing on careers, leadership and communication. She draws on her background in the theatre, her meditation and martial arts training, and her extensive experience as a trainer and coach.
