imec’s Founders Circle event brings together the innovative and creative minds behind the creation of these start-ups. The previous edition of Founders Circle took place on November 24th at the StartupVillage (Antwerp).

With a focus on leadership awareness, the event was led by Steffi Van Ranst from TICkA, who started by challenging attendees to reflect on their relation with co-workers:

  • Do they listen to their concerns?
  • Are they open to receive feedback?
  • Do they take the time to recognize employees for their work and progress?

The session went on to show the importance of certain values for a healthy work environment and employee satisfaction, such as cooperation, safety and trust, and how it’s a leader’s job – as a coach and mentor – to foster those in the company.

As an entrepreneur, leadership skills are crucial to inspire and motivate your co-workers to achieve their full potential and work together towards the success of your business.

The event ended with an informal networking drink, accompanied by drinks and appetizers.
