Be Time-Wise

In these busy and hectic days, everybody seems to run after time – or rather out of time, looking eagerly for time management concepts. “Time Management” however is a misnomer. By definition, management is about control. While time ticks away second by second, we cannot control time. We cannot stop time, speed up time or stockpile time. Time can be […]

Life is A Miracle

Live Life Like a Miracle and Dance “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein “We must not allow the clock and calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.” […]

Pleasant Life Journey

Among those people who influenced my thoughts and actions are Peter Drucker, Stephen R. Covey, Wayne Dyer, Simon Sinek and Eckart Tolle, just to name a few. Studying these brilliant minds, I realized that certain themes are repeating. My aim to cluster those themes resulted in a list of 11 keywords starting with the letter ‘P’. As they helped me […]

A TR2UST Framework

TR2UST – Trust, Respect and Responsibility Unleash Success Together. In the complex spheres of professional and private life, everything boils eventually down to two simple dimensions: Relationships and Results. Delivering sustainable Results depicts the rather IQ-driven performance dimension of processes, systems and competencies ensuring reliable outcomes. The ability to build healthy Relationships is the more EQ-driven behaviour dimension of communication, […]

Lead Like A Compass

Let me start with a simple one-liner leadership definition that always came in handy for me: “Leaders show the right direction and engage others to follow.” Herein, “Showing the right direction” is the competence part of leadership. It represents the foresight and required insight to create a vision. More importantly, it also encompasses the ability to translate the vision into […]

People ARE the Business

As long as announcements on job cuts are applauded by stock markets with increasing share prices, any talk on employee/people-centric leadership is merely an echo to the drums of the shareholders. Ethical leadership emerges once employees become the most important stakeholders – in words and in actions. I came across a company culture description in a job advertisement, in which […]

Be a 360-Degree-Leader

One of my favorite quotes on leadership is from John C. Maxwell who states: “It’s not the position that makes the leader; it’s the leader that makes the position.” In a paraphrased manner, this means for me not to aim for the position where people have to follow but to be the person whom people want to follow. In order […]

Be A Change Agent – With a PEOPLE Focus

“People don’t resist change; they resist being changed.” – Peter Senge While change guru Peter Senge surely has a valid point in above quote, just think of your last personal change mission; that new diet, ditching a bad habit or starting a new exercise program. How did you do? Did you pull it through or has the change commitment been […]

Leaders Are Coaches

“Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.” – Voltaire (1694 – 1778) In that sense, leaders may focus on asking the right question in the right circumstances using the right tone rather than believing they always have to have the right answer. The best one word to describe a leader may not be the often cited […]

Wear a SMiLe

Are you still a manager or already a leader? – During numerous management discussions and leadership trainings I attended, managers and leaders are largely treated as if they were two different persons, on two different levels. Leaders are often depicted as charismatic innovators with focus on people and trust, while managers are executors with focus on systems, processes and controls. […]
