Prof. Schippers discusses how to increase your own, your co-workers' and the company's performance. this Free webinar: was broadcast on Erasmus University Rotterdam July 15 2022.
Prof. Michaéla Schippers will talk about how to master the skill of life crafting: “a process in which people actively reflect on their present and future life, set goals for important areas of life—social, career, and leisure time—and, if required, make concrete plans and undertake actions to change these areas in a way that is more congruent with their values and wishes.” As a professor of behaviour and performance management, she has made it her life goal to let other people shine and prosper. Prof. Schippers developed a tool that can help you and your co-workers craft an ideal life by thinking about what this ideal life could look like, and contrast this with thinking what life would look like if you follow the current chosen path.
"What we are dealing here with is is a very serious problem. It is radicalization and extremism institutionalizing in our academic institutions that are paid by the taxpayer, that are meant for general education and research
that are now being hijacked by radicalized groups".
In this follow up interview with social scientist at the University of Amsterdam, Laurens Buijs, we talk about what has happened to him after blowing the whistle, late 2022.
He's been cancelled, threatened, and defamed now also in Dutch state media. Buijs: " it's completely unacceptable we have to speak out as openly as we can about what is happening. That the university is complicit that the administration is complicit, that staff who is not speaking out is complicit. It is such a grave problem that the only thing that I can do as a whistleblower is bring it into the light".
This Follow the Science interview by Rico Brouwer was recorded late March 2023 where Laurens and Rico were paying a visit to Michaéla to see how she was doing.
