Meeting old men

Two observations that old beliefs slowly got obsolete Today I was running in the woods. I stopped by at my favorite spot which is a small lake. Usually it is calm and quite there – and I am the only person. Today there was an old man with his two dogs. The dogs were enjoying […]

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 […]

Managers are wiser than average and subordinates are dumber?!

A little story of my life… plus an (uncomfortable) observation Recently I had a discussion where I was involved very passionately. It was in a group of people I trust very much.

My May was mostly like that: many new & joyful things. Sometimes it felt also like a rollercoaster ride: bringing the guts upside down, also mostly joyful […]

Who Says? – Experimenting with your core beliefs

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 keep working that long in my mind. I find it easy to […]

What running means to me

A part of my personal retrospective 2016 & a loveletter to running itself A couple of days ago I set one of my targets for 2017: I’ll do the full Marathon in October 2017. I actually signed up, payed the fee, whoop! No way back! Yes, of course, there would be a way back e.g. […]

Nachlese PM Camp Dornbirn

Was ich über das Unterscheiden und das Trennen gelernt habe… und noch mehr… (picture credits: Joachim Schlosser, license: CC BY-SA) Am Fr/Sa 18./19.11.2016 war ich Teilgeberin beim PM Camp Dornbirn. Dornbirn ist quasi die “Mutter” der PM Camp Bewegung, die mittlerweile in vielen Städten europaweit Unkonferenzen zum weiten Themenkomplex Projektmanagement auf die Beine stellt. In […]

The evening was based on methods and elements from the Art of Hosting and the main part was […]
