We attract people with a burning desire to find more meaning in daily work.  

 

We take care not to sell overloaded trainings or concepts to our clients. 

 

 

  

Truly living what we teach,

gives lasting value to our work. 

What we are doing

Innovative strategies and minimalistic approaches - for clever change management.

Your employees should opt for change wholeheartedly, based on an experience that convinced and moved them.

 

Our minimalistic change-approach generates a gentle change born from within, which is bound to show effects, as adjusting the rudder of an ocean liner doubtlessly has a clear effect.

 

This will generate a sound and gentle evolution rather that the type of revolution resulting in resistance, which you may have experienced before.

Ultimately it is our "Bottom-Up-Approach" that differentiates us from other consultancies.

Rather than giving old methods new names, we'd like to take you and your company on a journey of congruence which is at the same time a path of simplicity, wisdom of the crowds, the giving of choice, of wise empowerment as well as lasting motivation.

What's new

May 2018: Bringing out "Emotional Maturity" as an audiobook

In order to re-define our workplace, we propose to start with ourselves.

 

Our new audiobook gives new perspectives on emotional developement. It is a dive into our self.

 

For how can we know others, if we do not know ourselves?

 

Should you be aiming for great change, then start with the one you can change - yourself.

Here you find the audiobook.

 



Inspiring work, that we can not keep for ourselves.

Wir teile unsere Ideen mit der Welt
Sharing our ideas with the world

 

When doing this, fun or profit is not what we aim for, but joy and gratitude. In doing this each of us only offers what he has resolved himself. To actually live what we preach, is very dear to us. We honour theory, but give practice the preference.

 


Our services for sustainable change management

We talk a lot about change and change management, but it is actually about re-defining teamwork and motivation as we know themFor many, these two subjects are dead. There does not seem to be much more to gain. We came to a totally different conclusion. About 50% of all employees go to work being unmotivated. That's what we call potential. We can see that this renewed motivation and teamwork automatically leads to sound change.


Rewarding work - right next to the daily action

Judging by the names of our services, you can see that we work very close to daily practical business:

 

On the following pages you will find more about our innovative strategies for natural and sustainable change management.

Change as by-product

Change isn't our primary objective, but the by-product of our work. That may be the reason why people are so bravely participating in our projects.

A brave expression of creativity


The difference to traditional change management

 

Tailor made solutions are mostly based on premeditated information modules. These must not have much to do with your actual problems. Even the so called co-creation-processes are often misused for this purpose. Co-creation should be to work out the issue with the client. We take this task to the factory floor, and yet, this is only the beginning for us, and at the same time where traditional consulting ends.

 

Traditional change management promises to tailor the product specifically for you, and include the people, (that is the latest trend). But you probably know by experience, that after a kick-off, your middle management team is confronted with the difficult task to implement the changes into their departments. And this is where most change efforts go down the drain, since they often do not know how.

 

 

 

The desire to change must live

in the hearts of those,

who will actually perform it.

 

 

 

These traditional solutions are rather expensive and do not necessarily survive very long, since they do not live in the hearts of those who must actually do the job. It never even touched people on the field or factory floor.

By the way, willpower plays a clear role in this process. The more of it is there, the more resistance will also be there. This resistance may seem insignificant, since it is so familiar to us, but mostly there is enough to disturb any change effort.

 

So kontrolliert man ein Kraftwerk - aber was ist mit Menschen?
This is how to control a power plant - but what about people?

 

Many of us have accepted unmotivated employees as the standard,

and believe we must control and urge them in order to perform.

We claim there is another way to realize success and efficiency.

 

 

Should this sound familiar to you, a meeting could be well worth the time for you. Our concept is designed to keep the risks and the relative costs low. Your final decision should be based on actual experiences with us. This means we will demonstrate to you in limited scale, what our minimalistic and subtle approach is like.


Humanistic change management

To create spaces where people can unfold, is what humanistic means to us.

A space where we can and want to take action and responsibility, because we recognise that as being part of our path.

 

Our humanistic change management approach does not have very much to do with regulations or ethics, unless we speak about inner ethics. Would we regard humans as beings entirely driven by desires and lust, there would be little hope. In reality we all strive for happiness and will do what it takes to find that.

 

At this point we should widen our perspective and release the limitations we put on ourselves. Our Credo and our thought patterns can limit or free ourselves. Which one it's going to be, we decide from moment to moment. We will not tell people what to do, nor will we give philosophical talks. It is much more about the intention we cultivate. To put it simply, we may inspire people to be aware of their intentions and to cultivate them.

The minimalistic approach

Everything we do is designed to be minimalistic. That saves you time and resources.

We may leave traces in the hearts of employees. More is mostly not necessary. The change is most consistent when your folks have the impression they've done it all by themselves. And they will.
This may initially sound somewhat esoteric or idealistic, but don't worry. There may be more common sense in this, than in some of the rather dry management approaches.
When talking about giving space to unfold, you may wonder since you might be so used to control. But, think about it. When did you last achieve a personal top performance due to more control from others?

The bottom-up-approach for sustainable change

It is this approach that differentiates us from the absolute majority.

Of course we need to work on all levels with corporation. However, our experience has shown, that if we are not willing to work on the grassroots level, our work is in vane. To us Bottom-Up means a steady change that is generated from the floor level. 

The desire for change has to live right where the actual change will take place - in the hearts of your employees. That is where the true power of a corporation sits, while the wisdom should reside on the management level.

The Bottom-Up-Approach is a gentle evolutionary change,  that spreads like rings on the water.

 

 

In summary, our work is not revolutionary, but it is a gentle evolution. And yet, it will eventually penetrate the entire system.

 

This is change management

at its best.




Our geographical base is the region of Munich and London

Since we as founders have an international background, it makes sense to start out in the region around Munich as well as London right from the beginning.
