Event topics

How to take the first steps to becoming a manager
Moving from an individual contributor to management role requires a shift in mindset. Eline will guide you through the most important first steps of this shift and will give hands-on advice that you can apply straight away with your team.

For example, how to set clear expectations and build the foundation for a strong team culture.
How to build trust and empower your team
We'll focus on the practices that will enable you to trust each team member to take full ownership and act in the best interest of the company.

We'll discuss inclusive leadership, candid feedback and recognizing and rewarding team members.
How to lead difficult conversations
As a manager, you will undoubtedly find yourself in some less-than-easy conversations from time to time.

We'll discuss the ins-and-outs to becoming an active listener, challenging the interlocutors with powerful questions and striking the balance between sweet and spicy.
The event will be valuable for everyone who wants to become a better manager and leader and avoid mistakes on this thorny road
Speaker
Eline de Wit
Country Manager Benelux at Lemonade
Eline is responsible for leading the company's operations in the Netherlands. Before starting at digital-native Lemonade she had extensive experience in leading digital transformation of organizations. Seeing so many different companies taught her that the key to being a successful business is not having fancy organization models or the coolest tech tools — it's making sure everyone in the company takes ownership, no matter what level they're in.

To grow into such a strong organization, Eline believes a company needs strong leaders. Managers who treat their team members like actual adults, empower them, enabling them to take ownership and nurturing them with tools to grow, experiment and occasionally fuck up.

Eline lives in Amsterdam, though she's always on a hunt to chase summer year-round.
