Tack TMI HERO Mindset Panel Events

A HERO Mindset is about awareness, being focused on the presence and how positivity is important not just for mental health but to strive and achieve your goals in life. Whether it is personal or professional, applying each area of a HERO Mindset is important individually and as a group or team.

HERO Mindset in the workplace helps to:

  • Focus HOPE into motivational and goal-directed energy
  • Apply ENERGY (strength and vitality) to a focused, actual task
  • Build RESILIENCE and harness stress to work for you (not against you)
  • Have OPTIMISM and anticipate the best possible outcome

Tack TMI are proud to bring you the HERO Mindset Panel Events series in the month of May. There are four events, with each event hosting a number of panellists from different backgrounds focusing on their experiences and best practices for each topic.


Most people think of hope in terms of “hope for the best,” optimistic advice offered in times of trouble.

However, the definition of Hope is: “A positive motivational state that is based on an interactively derived sense of successful agency (goal-directed energy), and pathways (planning to meet goals)” 1.

Hope has a very positive impact on achievement. Organisations with higher-hope human resources are more profitable, have higher retention rates, and have greater levels of employee satisfaction and commitment. Employees’ level of hope relates to their job satisfaction, organisational commitment, work happiness, and performance.

Would you be guided by a leader who has no hope?

Without hope we feel lost and paralyzed from despair. Hope is a feeling, and feelings lead to actions that can help us set higher, engaging, better goals.

Joining our panel will be:

Learn from aspirational leaders who have hope, set a new vision and create feelings that lead to the right actions.


Energy is the basis of all activity – mentally and physically. Therefore it’s important that we are able to identify and work to eliminate the things that drain our energy – the obstacles which we often and unconsciously let steer our performance and careers.

The definition of Energy is: The strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity2. The important point is that the context of this strength and vitality is to be focused on an actual task.

Our energy level provides the basis for our ability to perform and function.  Without it our teams have low morale, are unmotivated, lack initiative or creativity, and an inability to spot opportunities.

Motivation can get us going, but energy (our internal driver) will keep us going. In a state of high energy, we can deliver incredible results, yield new ideas and prolific innovation, complete complex tasks with apparent ease and deliver huge value to the business. There are three types of energy: individual energy, team energy, and organisation energy, and each has a vital role to play.

Joining our panel will be:

  • Paul Hutton, Vice President Operations for South East Asia at Hilton
  • Jörg Koppel, Managing Director of Sales & Service at Dräger

Hear how the role of leaders that lead with energy is crucial, particularly how they implement this and have impact on their team and organisation.


Resiliency is reactive rather than proactive in nature.

The definition of Resilience is: The capacity to rebound or bounce back from adversity, conflict, failure or even positive events, progress and increased responsibility” 3.

This “bouncing back” involves being able to be flexible, adjust and adapt accordingly, and ongoing responsiveness to change and uncertainty.

Resiliency is not just an outcome that people strive to achieve, nor is it only a valuable input that enhances their chances of success. It is an ongoing journey, an elaborate process in which competence is developed over time as people interact with their environment.

Resilience is increasingly being viewed as an essential attribute of employees, managers, and organisations, especially in light of recent times. As today’s employees face risks and uncertainties, resilience is truly an indispensable factor for growth, development, and sustainable adaptability to change. Thankfully, resiliency has been shown to be trainable and developable.

Joining our panel will be:

Hear how this conceptualisation has opened the door for leaders to act proactively, and create and develop resilient individuals and organisations.


Some people view the “glass” – everyday and important events – as half-full (optimists) and some as half-empty (pessimists).

The definition of Optimism is: An inclination to put the most favourable construction upon actions and events or to anticipate the best possible outcome” 4.

The positive impact of optimism on physical and psychological health and the attendant characteristics of perseverance, achievement, and motivation lead to academic, athletic, political, and occupational success. On the contrary, pessimism is known to lead to passivity, failure, social estrangement, and, in its extreme, depression and mortality.

Being an optimistic person includes emotional intelligence, understanding stress factors and their causes, and acknowledging the situation and who you are, even if the situation is bad or negative. Optimism is all about the “power of positive thinking” and a “I can do this” attitude which is imperative for personal and business success.

Joining our panel will be:

Learn how optimistic behaviour and tools can overcome negative perception, and how the courage to change it can create positive outcomes such as occupational success.
