SLOW DOWN TO SPEED UP! RETREAT IN 5 HOURS!

IMG_1929.JPG

FOR ALL THOSE who are looking FOR SOME NEW ENERGY, RENEWEd focus for 2019, better work-life balance or whatever it is that will improve the quality of your life, and… that you don’t have time for ;-)… but now you do!

ME-WE-IT RETREAT

A unique opportunity for those who don’t have time to retreat for a whole week, go to fancy places to do so, or don’t want to spend a lot of money on themselves. I developed a 5-hour one-on-one retreat, especially for you. During the retreat you will reflect on your own role within yourself (me), within the family-, friends- or workplace (we) and within whatever it is you spend most time doing (it). That what you consider ‘what it is I have to do in my life’. You’ll be coached, we’ll spend time in nature, I’ll guide you with some mind- and body excercices and I am convinced you will leave refreshed, clear(er) and energised after those 5 hours that you allow yourself to retreat. ‘First put on your own oxygen mask, then help others’ is a very healthy principle. You can’t pour from an empty cup. Thus retreating yourself is not selfish, but a must for those who want to lead a healthy, happy and successful life in all aspects of that life.

You determine what you want to focus on, after all, it is your retreat and I am here to serve you. I am very flexible and will tailor it totally to your wishes. The only investment you have to make beforehand, is answering 5 questions per theme (me, we and it) and do a values assessment. Together, it will take maximum 50 minutes of your time to prepare.

My intention is to serve as many people as possible with this retreat. Therefor I will charge a special price of 250 euros (exclusive of VAT) for the total of this retreat, including drinks and snacks. In case you are a student or consider yourself future generation without a lot of means and are attracted to this, please contact me! For you, I’d like to agree on a different ‘price’, since I would love to see as many of you as possible. So you decide afterwards what you think the retreat was worth :-). If you need a bit more personal space afterwards, on certain days it is also an option to stay the night in your private place, so you can integrate all you did, write down your plans, read, whatever you want. To stay the night, includes a dinner (private), stay, breakfast and if you want a mindfulness session. All for an extra 75 euros.

IT-WE-ME RETREAT FOR TEAMS

If you prefer retreating with your team for 5 hours, of course that’s possible! This will be a different retreat, but certainly not less valuable. The common theme will probably be ‘it’: so that will be the starting point. Thus, the focus in the first part will be on the teams purpose, your focus, your goals for 2019. What does this ask for, from a team perspective? How do we support each other? How do we succeed? From there, we will define what is needed from each individual to get there, get a close look on everybodies contribution in the team. Slow down to speed up: also within a team, my experience is, that it really pays off to sit down with each other, not talking about content only. But together reflect ‘from a higher balcony perspective’ on the business and how to strengthen each other getting there. If you already have a get-together planned or feel like it now, let me know and we’ll get your team energised to be successful in 2019!

The special price that you will be charged for a 5-hour-teamretreat will be 750 euros with a maximum of 7 persons. When you have a bigger team and very much feel drawn to it or me, let me know and we’ll discuss how to deal with it.

If you want more information or explore together how I can serve you or your team with this retreat concept, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am happy to explore together!

 LEAD WITH VALUES AND PURPOSE.

JOIN AN INSPIRED LEADER JOURNEY AND/OR FTV TO LEARN HOW TO FACILITATE TRANSFORMATION YOURSELF!

 

Corporate Evolution is a Leader in the area of Values and Organisational Transformation.

The Inspired Leader Journey™ is a series of programs to transform leadership through the lens of Values and Purpose. Inspired leaders are purpose-led and values-driven, making extraordinary impact in their work, their families, their communities and in society. This program is based on the latest leadership research; an integration of Barrett 7 levels of Consciousness, Kegan’s Adult Stages of Development, The Leadership Circle and Presencing Institute’s Theory U.

 "When I was trained and accredited in FTV (Facilitating Transformation through Values) in 2014, it was life-changing for me. Both in my personal and professional life it has deepened my way of being in a very profound way. I am very honoured to be part of the support team in Bali in July and will be able to accompany those who join on this amazing journey!"

This journey enables leaders to:

  • Become highly self-aware – learn how to shift our reactive triggers

  • Understand what it means when we live our values fully – tapping into the wisdom that sits within our values

  • Connect with and align with our Purpose, which motivates us to make a difference in our work and life.

  • Improve our levels of trust, influence, collaboration and the ability to have courageous conversations.

  • Solve our business challenges through a higher level of consciousness.

This program is the personal leadership part of the flagship “Team Transformation” 9-month program that Corporate Evolution runs with their clients across sectors including financial, mining, oil and gas, construction, engineering, logistics and professional services organisations.

FACILITATING TRANSFORMATION THROUGH VALUES PROGRAM

Corporate Evolution has developed a globally renowned facilitator development program based on values.

01cdcedb-fba3-425a-aa51-2e68c5542fe2.jpg

The Facilitating Transformation through Values™ (FTV) program is a 15 day Forum-Field-Forum facilitator development program delivered over several months. By the end of the 3 Forums, participants will be able to deliver several 2-3 day top team/senior leadership transformation programs from “The Inspired Leader: Leading from Values and Purpose” Series.  The aim is to assist leaders to become truly authentic and courageous in their leadership, leading from their unique sense of purpose.

The audience for this program are Leadership/Culture Change Agents, HR/OD Practitioners, Leaders, Consultants and Coaches.

The key aspect of this program is learning to become a “transformational facilitator”. We focus on two areas; how to access one’s “Being” to facilitate transformation and how to integrate the lens of values as an evolution of consciousness. 

This program has been developed over a seven year period in collaboration with one of the largest management consultancies and their global clients. It is formally endorsed by The Barrett Values Centre as recommended to its values practitioners around the world.


BEING IN RELATIONSHIP WORKSHOP WITH GITA BELLIN

I participated in this workshop in March in Abu Dhabi. To me, it was magic. Not only the content and the amazing wisdom and presence of Gita made impression. Also being part of a group of about 45 people from all parts of the world, certainly adds to the magic of the experience. I can fullheartedly recommend this workshop to everyone who wants to deepen their relationships with themselves and others. A unique opportunity to learn, experience and raise consciousness in all its aspects.
— Vivienne

The purpose of the Being in Relationship Course is to provide the practical skills, experience and understanding which will empower us to transform the quality of relationships in our day to day lives.

Wisdom of Quotations - 10.10.10.png

The core concept of the Gita Bellin & Associates teaching is that of Transformation rather than that of Change. The dictionary defines change as a substitution or succession of one thing for another, a variation for ourselves as human beings. Transformation is the process of re-creating the internal structure of our consciousness, altering in an expansive, integrative, evolutionary direction the root perspective from which we experience – and respond to – ourselves, others and our various life situations.

This profound life-changing 3-day seminar examines in great depth and detail our distinct patterns of thinking, feeling and acting in relationship. The course provides practical skills, experience and understanding, in the Mastery of all stress-related patterns of interaction within relationship. 

Areas of knowledge covered in the seminar are as follows:

-  Mastery of Brainwave Patterns. The three basic States of Human Consciousness: Waking, Dreaming and Sleeping;

-  Study and Practice of how to access at will Brainwave Patterns for optimum Wellness experiences;

-  A simple yet profound Stress Management Skill is studied in order to access deeply buried mindset patterns that tend to be survival/reactive based behaviours. The Amygdala Response;

-  Course participants are taught how to practice the Stress Management Skill. Participants will be shown how to create Altered Brainwave States for deep relaxation, stress release, deeper sleep, overcoming jet-lag, opening up tension in the body, especially in the shoulders, chest and spine, reducing high blood pressure and many other stress-related physical, mental and emotional problems;

-  Understanding our personality through current philosophical and psychological concepts of the development of the brain, mindsets and behaviour;

-  The interaction of the strategic personality in relationships;

-  Dealing with conflict and opposition. Willingness to resolve;

-  Transcending negative emotional behavior patterns in self and others;

-  Discovering mutual respect, love and compassion;

-  How to move through anger, rejection, fear, pain, isolation, withdrawal and frustration;

-  Rediscovering the source of our male and female energy balance within;

-  Being in Relationship. Marriage and Partnership;

-  Becoming complete with our genetic line;

-  Freedom from the genetic grid for ourselves, our parents, grandparents and children; 


SOME BOOKS THAT INSPIRE ME:

 The latest book I red…brilliant! The lightness, depth, humor and friendship between these two world leaders is very inspiring and human at the same time. They spent a week together to write this book about how to live a joyful life.

 To me, this book is proof, that a worldwide movement is happening without coordination or leadership in one place. It shows beautiful examples in which political, corporate, religious, scientific leaders take their responsibility in contributing to a better world for future generations.

 During a Barret conference in Canada I met this very inspiring man, Lance Secretan, who is also a great poet by the way. He sure walks his talk. In this book he elaborates on the importance of developing Self as the only way to (effortlessly) then be able to inspire others and automatically inspire the world. Very inspiring!

 I loved the alchemist...again. I red it for the third time or so and just like Paulo Coelho does as well: every time different bits and pieces resonate and it teaches you different things. The main lesson I got this time, was understanding the depth of Maktub... If you believe in it (and I do :-)), your life is written in the stars and 'all' we have to do is follow our own inner wisdom, our own path, be aware of the signs and live the life we are meant to live.

 Don’t take yourself so f…ing serious! That is the message in Elizabeth Gilbert her book on how creativity travels around.. I found it a very refreshing view on taking your own ideas lightly and be humble. Sometimes it is the right moment, you are the right person and this is the right idea to be manifested…and that is when the magic happens…enjoy!

 This book is so liberating! Instead of using 'force' to get things done (which so many of us do, because that is what we learned...in corporates, governments, educational systems), the true art of living is to connect with your own power and experience how 'effortlessly' life will unfold and how all the right things will come on your path. Isn't that what we all want?It made me a lot more relaxed, because now I know to be true what I already felt: focus on your own inner power and your life will be a lot more impact- and joyful!

SOME INSPIRATIONAL MOVIES I'D LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU:

Listen to the wise words of nature…Doesn’t it humble you? Are you aware nature doesn’t need us?

I love the fun way of explaining the differences between men and women…especially the ‘nothing box’…clarifying :-)!!

'Doing nothing is no option'...Wangari Maathai explains beautifully about the importance of doing the best you can in this inspiring tale of a hummingbird.

A short film by Richard Curtis featuring Usain Bolt which helps explain why we should finish what we started with the Millennium Development Goals and end poverty by 2030 and tackle inequality and climate change.

Listen to what Nowaten has to say about the needed cleanup in the world...

Artist: Rising Appalachia Song: Scale Down. Beautiful how these two sisters role model action by means of art :-)

We live in a time where we quickly put people in boxes. Maybe we have more in common than what we think?

Have you found the joy in your life? Has your life brought joy to others? A film concerning the often missed nature of happiness. Film + more here http://nicaskew.com/collection/on-knowing-happiness/

There are 1.1 billion girls in the world, and every one of them deserves equal opportunities for a better future.

This movie is made to inspire people to "Make THE Difference" and start thinking differently. With a hope that people will start to make THE Difference to their own world. It doesn't have to be big, but a little can create positive changes.

If you've learned a lot about leadership and making a movement, then let's watch a movement happen, start to finish, in under 3 minutes, and dissect some lessons: A leader needs the guts to stand alone and look ridiculous. But what he's doing is so simple, it's almost instructional.

Michael Jackson actually had a beutiful message with his 'man in the mirror': start with yourself if you want to change the world :-)!

This beautiful animation shows what the world could look like if we achieve some the Global Goals by 2030. It looks at a selection of global issues, from extreme poverty to gender equality, and tracks the progress that has been made from the start of the millennium.
Just a few things to note: Making this video has a been a great experience, the warmth and love i felt from each hug was truly wonderful.
