Souvent nous nous focalisons sur le problème, sans penser que celui-ci peut être une source d’énergie. Et si nous pouvions recycler le stress? Comment pouvons-nous l’exploiter pour en tirer un avantage ? En quoi le fait de connaitre notre type de personnalité nous donne des leviers au quotidien?
Lors de ce webinaire gratuit, Audrey Costalin, consultante formatrice d'OPP France, abordera la dynamique du stress au travers du MBTI, et expliquera comment optimiser le stress pour non seulement diminuer les tensions, mais aussi pour en faire un élément moteur du succès.
Il n'est pas nécessaire d'être certifié MBTI pour suivre ce wébinaire.

Essentially, employer awards are a great way of building employer brand both internally and externally.
They provide a 'short form' way of getting a company's message and culture out both internally, and to potential external talent.
And in a marketplace where more of the talent than ever before has work and family commitments, some employers are leading the field!
We’re joined by two organisations running key award schemes, Working Families and workingmums.co.uk, to discuss the trends in making work+family work and what they look for when it comes to award entries.
We’ll also be hearing from multi award winning employers who’ll be sharing their stories.
At today's rate of growth, the size of the digital universe in 2025 will be 176 zettabytes, of information. To put that into perspective, a single zettabyte is enough to hold 250 billion DVDs. All of it could have some relevance to national security. The Defense Department and Intelligence Community will be in charge of managing an exponentially growing amount of outside data, along with an exploding volume of internal data from warfighters in the field, sensors overhead, and from increasingly complex and connected pieces of military equipment. They'll have to manage it via common IT architecture (IC-ITE), do so securely, and in the face of ever more technologically advanced adversaries.
Welcome to the Defense information environment of the year 2025. This event will give stakeholders, technologists, and the public an understanding of how Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community view the future of digital information. It will touch on new technologies, from quantum encryption to optic telecommunications and even cognitive computing. But it will also look at practical steps that the Defense Department is taking today to prepare for the digital world a decade ahead.
Learn how employers use backup family care to keep their employees engaged at work – and on the job – when an unexpected change in how they care for a child, parent, spouse or other family member arises. Two leaders in employer-sponsored family care solutions will share real-world examples of how leading employers across the U.S. leverage backup family care to get the job done every day.
We can all get stressed from time to time. Sometimes things really boil over, what MBTI users call ‘being in the Grip’, but much more often we just have to manage the everyday stresses of life.
In this webinar, Penny Moyle, CEO of OPP, and John Hackston, Head of Research, will take you through how, when we become stressed, an over-reliance on our strengths means that we don’t perform at our best, but how an awareness of our MBTI Type will help us to avoid, survive and master the effects of stress. They will also show you how to use new imagery and resources to explain these concepts to others.
You don’t need to be a qualified MBTI Practitioner to participate in this webinar, but it will help if you know your MBTI Type preference.
