Et si demain on télétravaillait encore ?

Si le Luxembourg pratiquait déjà le télétravail avant la crise sanitaire du COVID-19, la grande majorité des organisations a dû s’adapter au travail à distance dans l’urgence… et beaucoup ont trouvé les solutions et mis en place les process nécessaires en peu de temps. Jour après jour elles se sont donné les moyens de réussir cette transformation et même des postes a priori non « télétravaillables » ont pu être transposés, pour réaliser tout ou partie des activités à distance. Beaucoup parlent d’un « retour à la normale », mais et si demain on télétravaillait encore ?

Comment le courage managérial est devenu essentiel pour atteindre vos objectifs ?

Dans un contexte rempli d’incertitudes, les éléments favorisant le stress font légion. Le sentiment de « perte de sens » de ses propres actions est de plus en plus présent chez les collaborateurs. En conséquence, la recherche de repères dans le monde professionnel n’est plus un phénomène à sous estimer. Souvent attendu de la part des managers de proximité, mais aussi des membres de la Direction, le « courage managérial » semble être devenu, au fil des années, l’un des leviers permettant aux organisations d’atteindre leurs objectifs. Qu’est-ce que le « courage managérial » ? Comment se caractérise-t-il ? Comment peut-il être développé pour en faire bénéficier les équipes et votre entreprise ?

DigComp and EntreComp European frameworks: a real opportunity for businesses

Today, digital skills are vital for almost all jobs in modern economies. digital technology is not simply influencing how we go about our lives – it is transforming traditional structures, methods and assumptions about how we communicate, learn, work and live.
In the face of such transformation, the reality is that 44% of Europeans still do not have basic digital skills while 79% of Europeans go online regularly (at least once per week) and all projections are that a majority of forms of work will require digital skills in the near future. To remedy this situation, developing the digital skills of the EU workforce is essential; and to take up this challenge, the European Union created 2 different frameworks that can be used to assess and develop digital and entrepreneurial skills: the “DigComp” and the “Entrecomp” frameworks.

Design thinking – just a buzz word or an opportunity for everyone?

The “design thinking” methodology is not new – but in recent years it has made its way into the most diverse business domains. One of the reasons for its success is that it clearly focuses on the end user. In an iterative process, assumptions are continuously questioned in order to gradually approach the “right” solution. This process is usually divided into six phases; in the following article we will go into more detail about the change resistances you may encounter.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI): un levier pour mieux appréhender les changements !

Plus que jamais les entreprises doivent faire face à des changements profonds dans leur organisation et la gestion de leur travail. La crise sanitaire ayant exacerbé et accéléré ce processus, il a fallu repenser les rôles et responsabilités, gérer les émotions et adopter de nouveaux usages professionnels. Et les collaborateurs sont les premiers à être impactés, forcés pour beaucoup à sortir de leur zone de confort. Il faudra bien admettre ici qu’il n’est pas toujours évident de garder la maîtrise de soi et une ligne directrice dans ce genre de situation.
