HR Workshop Speaker - Stephan Maighan

Stephan Maighan

Inspiration and Transformation Expert

Drawing on his experience, Stephan Maighan effectively illustrates the impact that one’s attitude can have on the final outcome when faced with change and uncertainty. He then makes parallels between his professional and personal experiences to help participants remember the importance of being adaptable in the workplace. He reminds participants that challenges at work and at home should not translate into a negative outlook. As Stephan astutely observes: “It’s not what has happened to you that matters—it’s what you make of it.” Stephan is the author of Devenez maître de votre vie,published by Quebecor. The book is informative and seeks to transform the attitude of individuals in order to get them where they really want to be. His strategies are powerful and effective.
