Why a minimalistic approach is needed.
Let's look at willpower as an example:
Our society values willpower very highly. This willpower defines goals. These goals per definition create problems. To resolve these problems, we need more willpower. In its realisation this willpower creates resistance. This resistance creates friction. The friction results in frictional loss, which costs us nerves. All this together may catch up with us, resulting in stress, burn-out-syndrome or depression.
Not that we wish this to happen to anybody, but for many managers reality looks like this. You might not exactly put it in these words, but in essence it describes the process they are going through.
The minimalistic approach encourages us to use our own willpower wisely and skilfully. There are many reasons for this, which have been confirmed by recent studies in the fields of psychology and neuro science.
We keep on asking people... "When did you last experience that being more controlled resulted in a personal peak performances for you?"
Only very few people can remember such situations within the context of work. This should make us think.
A correction of this course does not mean the return to the Stone Age or the end of human progress.
Our minimalistic approach is part of a larger concept. You'll find further details about it on this website.
We invite you to a personal meeting.
Maybe we can then clarify how our work might help you.
