Sustaining achievement, productivity and engagement in disruptive times
We operate in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world with technology disrupting business models and global competition heating up. Many organizations risk becoming irrelevant. In a bid to survive, we are constantly asked to do more with less. Going even faster or getting busier is not sustainable in the long run. The relentless organizational changes throw professionals into uncertainty and disempowers them from doing their best work. Stress levels, burnt out and disengagement leads to attrition of key talents and dollars lost with lowered productivity.
Wholeness is the antidote to fragmentation
What if people feel balance in their lives and are energised to embrace change? What if they are creative and see new possibilities? What if they are flexible and clear out outdated mindset? What if they stay resilient to do good work for the long haul? What happens when people see beyond themselves to be a contribution in their community – at work and beyond?
This keynote draws on the wisdom from East and West to present the pathway towards wholeness to improve productivity, engagement and resilience. Wholeness is a sense of peace or completeness within oneself and the world around.
Engage Wendy for sustained achievement - higher productivity, engagement and resilience in your workforce to succeed in a disruptive world.
WHAT OTHERS SAY...
Thank you for your keynote on “Being Whole”. It reminds us to find our bearing again when we are so caught up with the corporate work and pressure. It also reminds us to be 'human' with a heart, with love and compassion, and importantly, to love ourselves. Thank you for helping us enrich our staff positively and hence creating a positive and engaged workforce.

Your talk was very inspiring and thoughtful. I love your personal stories which give hope, strength, and inspiration. It will be a great learning for many of my high achievers to make them stop and think at times, find a better “balance of the forces” and with that, be even more efficient, and whole.
