The joint workshop at the #wetechtogether conference 2023 was co-hosted by Eva Sabo and Julia Füntmann of Eraneos Switzerland, and Janine Fuchs, Board Member of WE SHAPE TECH.

In this year’s workshop, we had the chance to connect with like-minded individuals, share insights, and collectively explore strategies to overcome self-sabotage. We learned a lot about negative dynamics that catch up with us in specific situations and that we can break through them positively. The in-depth and intimate reflection in the workshop enabled us to find many constructive and collective approaches and take aways for the plenary session.

The Hacks

We’re happy to share the key take aways from the workshop that resonated deeply with both, us and our participants.

Self-Awareness is Key
We believe that self-awareness is the foundation of personal growth. In our workshop, we encouraged everyone to take a moment for self-reflection. Understanding the triggers and behaviors that might be holding us back is the first step in this transformative journey.

Embrace Positive Self-Talk
We’re all too familiar with that inner critic that can undermine our progress. Together, we explored the power of positive self-talk. It’s all about challenging those self-limiting beliefs and replacing them with encouraging, self-affirming thoughts.

Setting Achievable Goals
Our approach to personal growth centers on setting clear, realistic goals. We discussed the importance of breaking down those big dreams into smaller, more manageable steps. By celebrating each milestone along the way, participants were able to boost their confidence and motivation.

Seek Support and Accountability
We’ve always believed that personal growth is a collective effort. In our workshop, we encouraged participants to seek out support from their networks, whether it be friends, family, or mentors. This support system not only provides encouragement but also holds individuals accountable for their growth.

Practicing Self-Compassion
We understand that setbacks are a natural part of the personal growth journey. Rather than being too hard on ourselves when things don’t go as planned, we explored the concept of self-compassion. Treating oneself with kindness during challenging times was a powerful message we shared.

Breaking Down Big Changes
It’s no secret that significant changes can feel overwhelming. During our workshop, we discussed the idea of breaking these transformations into smaller, more manageable steps. By taking this approach, participants discovered how to reduce anxiety and make their journey seem less daunting.

Learning from Setbacks
Our workshop reminded everyone that setbacks are opportunities for growth, not failures. Each challenge or mistake is a valuable lesson, and we encouraged participants to embrace these experiences as stepping stones toward personal development.

Consistency is the Key
To us, consistency is a linchpin of personal growth. We explored the concept of incorporating positive habits and routines into daily life. These small, consistent actions build momentum and resilience, making self-sabotage less likely.
