Life with plastic, it’s NOT fantastic

End of March a local initiative spontaneously started a plastic fasting challenge and our appartment house got invited as well. Caring about sustainable living and because I’m naturally curious what I can improve, I decided to join: Sharing sparked conversations sparked learning (sparked change) First of all, sharing this challenge on Twitter and with friends […]

Gratitude in business – our OOP 2019 session

In January this year, I once again had the pleasure to co-host a positive psychology session on Gratitude in business together with Armin Schubert. With ‘again’ I mean: after delivering our heart-topic already a couple of times at smaller occasions after speaking at regional meetups after one rejection at a tech-conference (because the topic wasn’t […]

Sewing and the beginner’s mindset

As a result of my daily journaling reflections I recently bought myself a sewing machine. My intent was that I would like to have an activity in my life that allows me to get creative with my hands, produce something valuable and at the same time transisiton my brain in a different-from-work-mode from time to […]

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. He also said that timeboxes can be used to be sure to "not forget about time". You have […]

Reframing applied

plus a pinch of scientific background Lately I came across a couple of occasions for applied cognitive reframing. 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

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? Und was trage ich selbst dazu bei? Die aktuellen Slides zu meinem Talk […]
