The Swedish Chamber of Commerce is looking forward to, together with Mindler, welcoming you to an inspiring session about mental health at the workplace post Covid-19. As restrictions are being lifted, employers are now challenged with a stressed and tired workforce on one hand and discovering new ways of working on the other.

At this event Johannes Hatem, Co-Founder of Mindler and Clinical Psychologist, will provide us with insights about these subjects:

  • Why is mental health so important?
  • How do your employees cope with the changing environment?
  • How do you create mental health awareness in your workforce?
  • What tools can you give your employees as an employer?

Moderator for the session will be Timo Spijkers, Business Development Manager Mindler the Netherlands.

A changing (Technology) working Landscape
Marcel Damen
Founder – Horizon Internet Technologies
Founder – Fare Care Solutions

With the acceleration in digital, the demands on technology — for speed, flexibility, reliability, security, and value — have radically increased. What does it mean for business leaders, how to review and transform ideas and organizations?

Social Skills
Speaker TBC

Social skills are essential to effective communication, and no leader can be efficient and effective if one cannot communicate well with those who they lead. It is about consistency, integrity, setting an example, and being a role model. People will follow you and share the same vision if they see consistency between your speech and behavior on a daily basis. Additionally, you should earn the respect and trust of your team, without the use of power or hierarchy.

Gabriele Hamm Adler

Everything is changing so fast, and it has become more important for the leader to understand everything that’s happening around us, but also to be able to understand how it will impact the organization you are working for. How to be genuine but also to understand that values change over time.
