W1 - How Mindfulness Meditation can Improve One's Productivity and Creativity
ENGLISH
Workshop

The workshop will mainly focus on promoting and explaining the importance of your mental health. For example, the benefits of taking care of your mental state, and the consequences of not doing so. We will be focusing on how meditation can boost one's productivity and creativity, which enhances work performance and problem-solving skills. To make things more convincing and easier to understand, we would also introduce some basic brain science knowledge, so as to explain how our mental health can be affected. Afterwards, we would introduce meditation to our audiences, as a tool to achieve a better mental state and the benefits that follow. Lastly, we would provide a 30-minute meditation trial for our participants, so that they can experience the power or effectiveness of meditation.

S1 - Advancing Female Talent in Your Organisation: Is Your Organisation Investing in the Right Initiatives?
ENGLISH
Presentation

Organisations have been investing in women and in organisational practices to promote diversity and inclusiveness for decades with mixed to little progress. Based on a recent survey, LHH identifies the key organisational practices that are essential in advancing female talent and the top five leadership behaviours that are most instrumental in supporting female talent. We also highlight the five key differentiation characteristics shared by women who advanced to senior leadership roles. We will discuss the role of coaching and the importance of having a coaching culture.

S2 - Infusing Spiral Dynamics® with Leadership Development
CANTONESE
Presentation

Spiral Dynamics is a model to describe the development of people and organisations. It helps users to understand the value systems of different people and organisations as they scale through different stages of development. It can be used to understand factors such as where leaders and their organisations want to go, where they are now and their current organisational values, practices and processes. Join Ms Luk and step into the infinite possibilities this model could offer, and learn about how it can be used to achieve an effective leadership that pushes employees to achieve their maximum potential, and ultimately allows the organisation to grow to higher levels of development.

S3 - The Business Benefits of Gamification
ENGLISH
Presentation

It's all laughs and giggles until … the boss walks in. As a manager or employer, you are probably familiar with the pressure it brings in engaging your teams to perform well. But at the same time, you want to make sure your employees are happy and working together as a team. It has long been said that human capital is the greatest asset, but humans are unpredictable and no solution fits all. Through the power of gamification, learn how simple changes in your daily workflow can have a huge impact on the performance, as well as the happiness of your teams. Best practices and game-changing tools deliverlong-term results.

S4 - Obstacles to Innovation: The Case for EQ and Sensemaking
CANTONESE
Presentation

Innovations either come from employees or are implemented by them. However, a lot of the time, employees resist innovation because that involves change. By using a scientifically valid instrument to measure EQ through 15 subscales under five composites (Self-Perception, Self-Expression, Interpersonal, Decision Making, Stress Management), organisations can better identify what stops employees from being more innovative. After coaching over 100 executives in Hong Kong using the EQi-2.0 instrument, this experience sharing session will discuss how to better introduce change and innovation in organisations.

S6 - MPF Digitalisation: The Winning Formula for Employers
CANTONESE
Presentation

In order to keep abreast of the latest technological developments, with a view to enhancing the efficiency of the Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF) System, the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority (MPFA)’s key focus area in the next few years is to put in place a digital platform to reform the existing mode of operation of the MPF System. Converting the MPF System to a digital model operated under a single platform will benefit all users including employers, human resources practitioners, as well as MPF scheme members. To pave the way for the launch of the eMPF Platform, the MPFA is striving to encourage the wider adoption of electronic means for MPF transactions amongst employers and employees.

In the presentation, Mr Wan, General Manager of the eMPF Project Office of the MPFA will share the features and benefits of the major existing electronic services provided by trustees and the future platform.
