A reading for the summer
une-conversation-de-jonghe
Une conversation - BÉNÉDICTE LEGRAND/PIERRE-JEAN DE JONGHE
Through an entertaining story, my dear coaching professor Pierre-Jean De Jonghe conveys to us in a simple and enjoyable way, concepts about human communication which are key to being successful in our relationships with others. (Only available in French, but it's very easy to understand :-))

A coach  calls
A Monster Calls - J.A. BAYONA
I've recently watched this movie at the cinema and I am surprised that it is a kind of coaching process in itself. I won't disclose any detail about it or about the plot.

I invite you to discover it by yourself. It´s worth watching.

A beautiful book by my client Tina
une-autre-facon-de-voir-le-monde
Une Autre Façon De Voir Le Monde - TINA MOUNEIMNÉ
Have you ever wondered what would participating in an international work-camp look like? What would it actually mean to you? Making new friends, making the world a better place and traveling at the same time? Or working in hard conditions, introspection and questioning this very same world? Well, the truth is that volunteering is a bit of all of the above and much more. Those seven stories gathered in this unique and authentic volume will, by taking you from the USA to Hong-Kong and from Iceland to Kenya, make you want to discover more: about yourself, about volunteering and about the world.

An inspiring read!

The European exchange programme for entrepreneurs
orientaeuro

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a cross-border exchange programme which gives new or aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs running small businesses in other participating countries.

The exchange of experience takes place during a stay with the experienced entrepreneur, which helps the new entrepreneur acquire the skills needed to run a small firm. The host benefits from fresh perspectives on his/her business and gets the opportunities to cooperate with foreign partners or learn about new markets.

The Chamber of Commerce of Spain in Brussels is a point of contact of the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program in Belgium and Luxembourg. Do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - STEPHEN COVEY
To me, everything starts with the first habit. I believe that if you are proactive and have a no victimizing attitude, you will be able to follow the full 7.

Give it a try!

Listening to Ken Robinson
ken-robinson-coach-brussels

You don't have the opportunity to listen to somebody like sir Ken Robinson every day....but I did! Directly coming from the US, he was the guest star of the European Youth Employment Forum that took place in Brussels on Friday, November the 6th. His intervention revolved around the role education has (and should have) in our society.

Conference by Patrick Gaffney
patrick-gaffney-coach-brussels

Last week I attended a conference about meditation and compassion by meditation teacher and writer Patrick Gaffney. It was a nice opportunity to get out of my day to day routine and step back.

He quoted something about our thoughts that called my attention:
"Meditation is learning to establish a new relationship with our thoughts: accept them and let them go, but do not get yourself catch by them".

Considering that we are what we think, any help is welcome to make our thinking more productive. I will make more time to meditate...

The Actress' Speech
Harvard Commencement Speech - NATHALIE PORTMAN
Fresh and stimulating speech by actress Natalie Portman where she talks about how meaningful for her is to have a real driver for what she does professionally, beyond earning money or having good reviews. I also like a lot what she says about taking risks. Beautiful!

Do you need a good book to read in the summertime?
the-power-of-now
The Power Of Now - ECKHART TOLLE
These days I'm engaged with this book, a classic of self development. It’s not easy to read so it’s taking me quite some time. I'm afraid that applying all what there is in it will take me much longer! Nevertheless, it’s being of big help at least on something: awakening and self-conscience. Especially recommended if you are on holidays.
