Mapping the future: Many companies look at the complexities and uncertainties of the future and either get confused, freeze in their tracks or ignore the topic completely. Why do we need to understand the future and how to create the best pathways for our future relevance as a company is indispensable to recognize how to move forward.
Trends vs scenarios: Looking at what is the difference between perceived future and situational future options. Why we should open our minds and think in multiple futures, understanding what is happening around us and how to make the best moves and decisions to ensure future relevance of our companies.
Be true to true to yourself: In different circumstances, you might give in to a situation or take a direction that leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth, gilt or even stronger feelings of regret. Knowing ourselves, identifying those situations, understanding the triggers and understanding how we take actions will take us to the point to maintain loyalty to who we are, increasing self-esteem and happiness in our life.
Innovation without borders: Not many people in the world can just sit down and create innovative ideas on command. This process is delicate, takes time and is influenced by multiple factors. How can we encourage this state of mind within and beyond the borders of our companies and turn them into reality?
Efficiency vs perfection: Perfection is in the eye of the beholder, if we don’t have that eye we will never reach it. Looking at our work environment: what do we want to achieve? What is realistic? Why and how can we do this?
Lightness and darkness in leadership: Leaders can be a beaming light or can go down the dark path, this influences everything in the work environment and beyond. Knowing yourself as a leader, knowing your team, creating and living an environment where light guides your path is essential for healthy businesses.
Making “amazing” teams out of “ordinary” people: Many leaders look for the best performers in certain competence areas, is this enough? Topical knowledge is not the only element to take into account when creating amazing teams.
