New technical platform for this blog

As I aimed in my post on Stop starting, start finishing in September, I finally changed the technical platform for my blog. Hooray! I’ve been quite hesitant to use a full-blown Content Management System over the lightweight solution I had before. “Why is that?” I asked myself and I mainly found reasons which I only heard of […]

Stop starting, start finishing – for real!

Catching up and warming up after the break… Yesterday it has been exactly three months since I wrote my last blogpost here on ‘Harvest, rest and celebrate… and possibly take some writing pause’. I wanted to be serious with ‘(stop starting,) start finishing’ – I really took the writing pause – and I’ve been successfull […]

Mindful Leadership

Start harvesting the insights from my bachelor’s thesis… It’s been some time I wrote about handing in my thesis and I promised to blog about it, right? Now that this topic is “done-done”, feedback from university supervisor as well as grading is there, I can finally do so. Yay! The thesis’ topic was to create […]

Bumble Bee Boxing

On creativity and reframing – or: decent structuring of chaos time with timeboxes Some days ago I had a very valuable discussion with one of my colleagues who is very passionate about using timeboxing appropriately and wisely.

Just three recent examples: “I am wasting 2,5 hours per day for commuting.” versus “I have time to sort my brain, be on the water, hear music or even do sports – and I am arriving at […]

Zwischenmenschliches Debugging

Kommunikationsüberwachung mal anders tag: [communication, coaching, zwischenmenschliches, debugging, public speaking, OOPmuc, (un)conferences, oop2017] Unser menschliches Gegenüber ist wie eine undokumentierte Thirdparty-Library: Wir müssen erst herausfinden, wie er/sie „tickt“, um zusammenarbeiten zu können. Und selbst bei bekannten Libraries gibt es immer wieder Überraschungen. Mit manchen Zeitgenossen geht Zusammenarbeiten besser, mit anderen weniger gut. Woran liegt das? […]

Who Says?

Experimenting with your core beliefs (picture credits: Frits Ahlefeldt, license: CC BY-NC-ND) Who Says? On new year’s eve I read this tweet of my friend Marianne where she planned to ask ‘Who says?’ more often in 2017. This little question already made me think in this moment but I did not expect that it would […]

Intervision – What is it and how does it work?

Case-based coaching and reflection among agile colleagues This year in October I was fortunate to be part of the Coach Reflection Day (CoRe Day) in Karlsruhe. It was a day filled with impressions, new ideas, shared experiences and great input. I’d like to share one of these impulses with you. This blogpost is an english […]

Intervision – Was ist das und wie macht man das?

Fallberatung und Reflexion unter agilen Kollegen Anfang Oktober durfte ich am Coach Reflection Day (CoRe Day) in Karlsruhe teilnehmen. Ich nahm ein ganzes Bündel voll toller Ideen und wertvoller Impulse mit. Den ersten davon möchte ich heute im Rahmen dieses Blogartikels teilen – und ich werde ihn auch als Impuls zum nächsten Treffen des Agile […]
