Dear net4tec community

Exploring new opportunities to keep growing within our community in times of covid-19 we invite you to join us to our new „Virtual Morning Session“ series.

We would like to create the space to exchange within the community, to network online as well as discussing current trends that we are all facing at the moment.

Coffee, Chat & Learn with Nanna Rüster

[Burnout Prevention] Resilience

The stress is increasing. At home it is even more difficult to draw lines and ‚take a break‘ than in the office. The expectation to deliver faster than others, smarter than others, more helpful ….to be a super(wo)man to everybody, especially to yourself, is raising day by day.

We are coaching each other – coaching in circles – maybe we listen, but we do not change anything. The desire to do everything as perfect as possible is no longer a motivation, but rather your inner enemy. The sense and the concern for your own well-being is carelessly wiped off the table, along with all the guilt you might feel about it.

We all know, what we should do to avoid running into a loop of exhaustion, but we don’t do anything about it.

In order to build up energy, we can implement simple tricks, that focus on all four levels:

  1. Head
  2. Heart
  3. Body
  4. Gut feeling

In this impulse session you will learn from Nanna Rüster, executive coach and partner at Upgrade

  • How to positively deal with this current situation
  • Why the current Corona situation is a booster for exhaustion
  • How to positively deal with this

Our key take-aways:

  • Learn why resilience is not a matter of personality, but about dealing with your own behavior
  • Get some major aspects, why the current situation is so challenging 
  • Be motivated to start observing yourself – open minded and with a curious attitude.
  • Get insights, practical experiences as well as tips and tricks to break out of the daily rat race.

Take a deep breath, let’s go for it!

The session will be very interactive and pragmatic.

 

About our Speaker :

Nanna Rüster is senior executive coach for ‚leadership in transformation‘ and partner at Upgrade an organizational development consultant team, based in Frankfurt. 

She accompanies executives during change processes with the aim of effectively combining strategic and communicative aspects.

Nanna has a background as a professional dancer and is a graduated manager for art and culture. As „Head of PR“ of an IT start-up, she was part of the core team to build up the company, before she became an independent leadership coach, with now 15 years of experience in various organizations and industries.

Summary net4tec @ Virtual Morning Session #7
Content is Queen
07.05.2020 – Online

 

It is been seven weeks now that net4tec introduced a weekly virtual morning session. After the basics of #PersonalBranding were presented in the #4 session, this week’s session immersed in creating content and how to attract interaction with the audience. #ContentMarketing

Dr. Irene Kilubi, our net4tec role model, Founder & Managing Director at brandPreneurs & brandFluencers invited everybody on a journey to create a successful content marketing strategy while showing how good content has to look like and how the needs of the target group can be met with unique and amazing #content. Everybody had a chance to choose the media to start best with as well as formats and types to use.

In a short mentimeter survey everyone had to chance to assess what kind of social media type they are and which type they wanted to be in the near future.

While the majority stated as participant or curator, everyone was highly interested in becoming a creatorand generating more content. These 6 different social media types were available to choose from:

  1. Ghost: Makes a profile, but never o rarely checks in
  2. Participant: Avid supporter, liking and commenting on other people’s content frequently
  3. Observer: Occasionally scrolls trough the feed, no original content
  4. Curator: Strategically crafting comments and network
  5. Salesman: Only interested in cold messaging for sales
  6. Creator: Strategically writing content and engaging with

If you want to turn from a ghost or any other type to a content creator #JustdoIt. Even if you might think you are not good enough in the beginning, free yourself from what others think and throw your fear overboard. #TrySomethingNew.

Content Media

Although there is a wide spectrum of content media the session concentrated on written content only like blogpost, reports, articles, case studies, infographics, emails, whitepapers, surveys, e-books and more.

The golden rule? When creating content choose a channel first, define the target groups and start with what you feel most comfortable with (i.e video or blogpost).

Content Formats

  • People want to be up to date and talk to their colleagues about the latest industry trends.
  • They love statistics and figures or look for things to overcome challenges.
  • Start for instance with a “How to” article, explore on hacks or write about industry trends to help professionals to improve in their roles like “5 ways on how to increase productivity” or “8 things you should not do when you start a new job”.
  • Structure your content well and engage with your audience though infographic and listicles, combine a short survey with a gift, add a call to action (i.e. to request feedback) and/or use tagging wisely.
  • If you’re missing information from existing content, add your point or perspective as a comment.

Content Types

As soon as you put yourself out there and start posting and commenting you are a content creator. During the session 4 different types of articles and posts have been discussed to support participants.

  • #Information help to make people to take new or better decisions
  • #Education help people acquire new skills or enhance their capabilities
  • #Inspire help people believe in themselves and try new things, motivating people
  • #Entertainment that attracts people’s attentions and engage their emotions

Exercise & Call to action

The session was finally closed with a call to action asking participants to write a post about the session to even get valuable feedback from our #contentqueen Dr. Irene Kilubi.

See for instance the posting from Begonia Merayo and Nadine Greck how this task was accomplished.

Key take away

  • Define the social media type you want to be
  • Just do it, if it does not work try something new
  • Share what you most feel comfortable with
  • Interact with your audience
  • Do not give up and be consistent!

Summary net4tec @ Virtual Morning Session
#6 Exceutive Presence in a virtual world
30.04.2020 – Online

 #Executive Presence – what is it and how important is it in a virtual environment? It is about the ability to show up strong with your team, leading by example and inspire #confidence in your team. Some people say you have to be born with it, but many leadership coaches say it is possible to learn the representing behaviors and improve your executive presence with a little practice.

Deidra McGinn who has worked in the technology industry for 25 years and recently founded her own company StepInStepUp where she focusses on lifting others and helping with executive presence, advanced coaching & style coaching, created lots of energy during this session and #inspired the participants with an enjoying interactive presentation. By sharing the executive presences framework everyone was able understand, what executive presence is, and which benefits it can bring. #Coaching

What is Executive Presence

Simply put, executive presence means inspiring confidence, create a higher level of engagement and loyalty from your clients, team members or just the situation you are in. It is especially about how people experience you.

  • How you act
  • What people see
  • What people hear
  • How you make them feel

Benefits of a virtual executive presence

These difficult #Covid-19 times have disrupted how we work and how we show up every day. We spend lots of time in front of a screen. While this can be very energy draining, it is important to show up well and practice executive presence to take advantage of it like:

 

  • Inspire confidence in teams or clients you work with
  • Maintain #trust, by showing a little vulnerability and sharing how you feel
  • Get taken seriously, by acting like you would act in an office
  • Build stronger connection
  • Increase your ability to influence others

 

Executive presence framework

The framework consists of four elements which refer to skills you can build while practicing them every day. If you would like to improve your executive presence look for feedback from trusted sources. For instance, ask within your team or people you constantly work with on how your behavior and image is perceived.

Four elements:

  • #Act is about your behavior – 66% of your executive presence is gravitas, improve your gravitas  
  • #See is about optimizing your professional image – impressions matter, you are visible from the head to the top of your shoulders, wear clothes like you go to the office, watch your colors, watch your posture, smile
  • #Hear is about how you communicate in the virtual world – it is about how you say it, power of breath, voice, storytelling
  • #Feel is about what is happening and how you make people feel, show strong empathy, people do not remember what you said but how you made them feel

 

 

Key take away

  • Virtual executive presence is important but can be developed
  • Create the best impression of yourself
  • Bring color into your world
  • Practice Act, See, Hear and Feel every day
  • People do not remember what you said, they remember, how you make them feel

Summary net4tec @ Virtual Morning Session
#5 Change Coaching
23.04.2020 – Online

 

Heraclitus said:” The only constant in life is change”. For many people this is even truer today than 3 months ago. Everyone walks on their own path through a phase of change. #Change  

In order to allow for transformation, change must be accepted, which usually happens after a phase of shock and fear. For a successful change to happen, people must change – Put them first!

#People

  • Understand their individual topics, needs, expectations, challenges, threats and/or fears to define and install successful actions.

In our morning session Dr. Carolina Kleebaur, Founder and Leadership Coach at CKC Impact Coaching with more than 15 years’ experience in project execution and change management for organizational transformation programs gave us an insight on #ChangeCoaching and explained how to support employees and team members during transformational phases. Participants had a chance to immerse into the world of personas, a coaching tool to map and cluster individual topics.

Occasions for change

There are many reasons for change. They range from individual changes to changes in teams or entire organizations. Through social distancing we are all confronted with a transformation regarding work life balance, working remotely from home, managing families, homeschooling children and more things in parallel. Some might be confronted with a new career step or create a new development plan.

Change events on a team area include for instance the need of onboarding new team members, new team tasks, new goals, new ways of working, new processes or new tools.

Examples at the organizational level could include strategic programs, efficiency programs, or restructuring program.

Key success factors

Together we created a word cloud for the question „What are the most important success factors for leading individuals / teams through changes?“ and identified following key factors:

  • #Communication, #Trust + #Empathy

 

Change Coaching – Mindset

During change it is recommended to have a coaching #mindset.

  • Keep a holistic view since change does not occur isolated.
  • Make sure you are solution – oriented instead of problem oriented,
  • Define SMART targets and
  • Work on eye-level

Consider the different phases – fear, development, transformation- people are in.

Change Coaching – Persona tool

The persona tool from design thinking is extremely helpful to understand the people affected by the change. It is easy to use and brings a clear structure to gather input. It provides input on individual, team and organizational level.

During the session participants had a chance to leverage a template to identify personas within their teams, share the persona and identify coaching topics to define actions for the change process.

Key take away

  • In times of change communicate, create trust and show empathy
  • Change effects individuals, teams and organizations
  • Keep a coaching mindset
  • Use personas to describe your customer
  • Define and install actions based on the persona

Review 4th virtual net4tec Morning Session 16.04.2020
#PersonalBranding
16.04.2020 from 8:30. to 9:30. am

 

Personal branding is more important than ever. These days it is not enough to BE GOOD but to BE VISIBLE as well. Everyone creates a personal brand, often without realizing it. If you are not knowingly branding yourself, you can be assured that others are doing it for you. #PersonalBranding

So better start and steer in the right direction. Using social media and networking opportunities you can influence how you want to be perceived by others. Effective personal branding sets you apart from the competition and helps to create trust with potential customers and employers. #Trust

In our morning session Dr. Irene Kilubi , Founder & Managing Director at brandPreneurs & brandFluencers and  #net4tec role model presented the steps that should be taken to work on your personal brand and make yourself more visible. As part of an interactive journey she encouraged participants to discover their SOUL in four steps.

Be clear about yourself

The provided soul analysis template helped to jump in the driver’s seat and to define what one wants to stand for based on your values and purpose. It can for instance be useful for becoming more visible, looking for a new job, a new speaking opportunity, or gaining more clients.

In order to get more clarity on strengths you can for instance consult friends and colleagues to help you identify areas where you good at or use the power of 34 talent topics of Gallup strengthfinder to find your potential.

#Strength

  • Define your strength and core #Competencies
  • List qualification, certification
  • Define your #Skills

#Offerings

  • Be yourself
  • Analyze your competitors what you can do better to fill the gaps
  • Position yourself in a niche
  • Understand the needs of your customer
  • Network, show interest in topics

#Uniqueness

  • Your network is your networth
  • Build a network before you need it
  • Be helpful first
  • Give, give, give and then ask

#Likings

  • What are you passionate about?
  • What are you enjoying most?
  • What would you do if money does not count?

Know your target group

In order to better define the target group, it is important to focus on persona, platform and profile at the same time.

Persona

  • At first create a realistic persona of your desired customer.
  • Put yourself in the shoes of your customer and ask yourself questions about that persona.
  • Describe for instance demographic characteristics as well as goals and fears.

Platform

  • When choosing a platform, it is recommended to start with one or two channels LinkedIn, Xing, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter).
  • Decide how much effort you can or want to put into social media #SocialMedia
  • Consider what channels are used by your target group (B2B, B2C).
  • Be conscious about whether your content contains a lot of photos or videos (i.e. Instagram, Pinterest).
  • Consider retention time of the chosen channel
  • Regularly create valuable content to be successful

Profile

  • Create a great summary to increase attention and optimize your profile. Tell a story about yourself and make sure to use keywords.
  • Put your expertise, offerings and target group into your profile slogan
  • Choose a high quality picture, where you appear according to your target group and smile
  • Be creative with your header by writing your activity or offer in text form #Creativity

Create relevant content

Producing relevant content is part of building a strong personal brand and therefore deserves a more detailed analysis. Since the topic has gone beyond the scope of our #Morningsession, a separate session will be offered soon.

Key take aways

  • Be clear about yourself
  • Start personal branding now
  • Know your target group
  • Start with one or two channels
  • You cannot make a personal brand without creating relevant content

Virtual Leadership
02.04.2020 from 9. to 10. am

Leaders and team members had to switch to virtual communication suddenly when being forced to work from home due to Covid19. People who have previously worked in virtual or international environments might have advantages here, but virtual leadership is different during social distancing. Lots of people are exposed to a new situation to manage or being managed remotely. Both sides, managers and team members, must catch up and develop new competencies.

In our second virtual morning session we focused on the challenge of “VirtualLeadership” during the current phase of #socialdistancingnow.

net4tec Morning Session
Virtual Team Building
09.04.2020 from 9.-10. am

Leading a team comes with many challenges when working together in an office. Virtual work goes one step further and adds new challenges. During this interactive session virtual leader Nahia Orduña, Senior Manager in Analytics + Digital Integration at Vodafone, shared her knowledge and made participants experience themselves, how to virtually get to know each other and better collaborate online. #VirtualLeader

A lot was expected from the third virtual #MorningSession. Participants were eager to share and learn about new ideas, best practices on virtual team building and the many tools being used for collaboration to get #inspired.

Meeting Structure

The purpose of meetings does not change when switching to virtual meetings. People should take virtual meetings as serious as in person meetings. In order to have a successful virtual meeting it is helpful everybody comes prepared, has the camera on and interacts verbally as well as in chat. In bigger meetings, it is recommended to assign a “chat guard” to make sure every voice gets heard.

During our #MorningSession we build a new virtual team in an #agile way by following a suggested meeting structure.

  • Set an agenda where team members can add in Teams Planner
  • Allow for introduction
  • Collect agenda feedback and expectations with Mentimeter
  • Set the impulse to create a project
  • Discuss and gather outcomes (best practice and tips on virtual team building for a post)
  • Feedback and wrap Up

Safety & Trust

During a meeting it is important to create a safe environment for the team and especially foster #trust. While this is often an issue in face-to-face-collaboration there is a risk it becomes worse in a virtual environment. Best practice discussed on how to create trust by dealing with failures and more.

  • Foster a culture of failure
  • Walk the talk as a manager
  • Learn, embrace, celebrate failures
  • Turn failures into lessons learned to grow
  • Consult established evening events „FuckedUp-Nights“ hosted by management
  • Make sure everybody gets heard
  • Speak up and share your own opinion
  • Address topics transparently
  • #allyship
  • Ask the question „Did you do your best?“

Collaboration

The many conferencing tools offers lots of collaboration features. During the session the focus was mostly on Teams but there are many other useful tools available. In general, it is recommended to use different tools for fun and work. Here are some recommendations:

Engagement

Try to keep team members engaged and build a personal connection between them.

  • Do things together, e.g. watch Ted Talks together and discuss it afterwards.
  • Offer team chat.
  • Conduct personality team tests like DISC or color test
  • Find the strength in your team with Gallup Strengthfinder

Take aways

  • Structure Meetings
  • Building trust and supporting trust           
  • Foster a culture of failure
  • Use different collaboration tools
  • Keep team members engaged

Review 1st virtual net4tec MorningSession

Review 1st virtual net4tec MorningSession
26.03.2020 #PersonalGrowth

In times of Corona, we are all facing changes. We need to adapt to new conditions in the shortest possible time. #net4tec responded as well and we offered our first virtual #morningsession on 26th of March 2020.

Many people have been pushed out of their comfort zone and embarked on a journey accompanied by fear and uncertainty but allows for learning and growing.

During our first virtual #morningsession we discussed where we are on our individual journey through this critical situation and shared experiences as well as best practices.

  • Approach the situation with an #openmindset. It is possible to interact remotely and virtually. Take advantage of possibilities to get involved. Embrace it!
  • Discover the joy for technology and build new competencies to ease and improve work and #communication.
  • Do not take the situation as it is. Develop new rituals like regular personal check- in’s and check-out’s. Create new #morningrituals, add regular #workouts and exercises to your day.
  • The line between work and home gets blurry. Switching off in the evening is sometimes difficult. Keep your work rhythm. Simulate your commute to work with walks around the block. #Differentiate
  • Put on your business clothes in the morning and add some drops of cologne to spice up your day. #SimpleTricks
  • Walk or take #meditation breaks between endless virtual meetings to not lose focus.
  • Invite people for a virtual morning coffee or friends for a remote aperitif. #SocialBreaks
  • Spend more time with families and consider their individual needs. Limit Homeschooling – you are not a teacher. #QualityTime
  • Start taking notes and write down your experiences. #Journaling and diary come back into fashion to help you process and grow.
  • Reserve enough time to #recharge. Introverts and extroverts are affected differently. While working from home might be more convenient for introverts, extroverts should plan more face time with lots of friends to fill up their energy levels.

Key take aways

  • Take advantage of creativity, skills and competencies within the group to realize ideas
  • Use existing contacts and network
  • Simple means can have big effects
  • „The world is getting bigger“
  • We become more inclusive and promote diversity

Use your time for things you always wanted to do. You can take part in almost every event in the world now! Thanks for your positive spirit!
