We will keep talking and writing about leadership. Research, biographies of world leaders and new theories fall over each other and claim to be “the best”. Personally I like to do some “cherry picking” in this never ending landscape. I select what inspires me and create a collection of insights that feed my personal wisdom […]
Our blog is there to inspire you. We share our experiences and what concerns us with a nod to the Being on Mission leadership philosophy.
Great if you respond!
Personally, I have trouble with the word authenticity. It is used in every context and it appears almost always in personal profiles. In the personal characteristics it says: authentic; and this will probably count for you as well. Imagine somebody mentioning the opposite in his personal characteristics: fake. That will make it definitely harder to […]
Dreaming is something we all do. Around six years of our life I read recently. You can read a lot about the meaning of your dreams, starting with spiritual meaning from ancient tribes unto modern scientific research. Many dreams are about fear, lack of something/someone or deep desires in your subconscious mind, and you are […]
Some time ago I got a birthday present book in which I was caught by an article of Anna Brones. She is a writer, artist and producer and author of various books including Fika, the art of Swedish coffee break. During my trip with my son this spring in Norway, we learned what Fika really […]

During my interim assignments I regularly hear employees saying: “I haven’t been trained in how to do my job.” This is often an argument why people don’t feel happy (yet) at their workplace. It doesn’t matter if this is true or not, this is perception, the personal experience of someone. As an interim professional I […]
We can be very brief about that; there is no such thing as one best style. Often, we assume that a leadership style is given by a certain position or person. This is unjustly, the art of leadership is to make strategic choices and switch your behavioral style without losing yourself. Instead of choosing the […]
During one of the training sessions that I give, there was an enthusiastic man in the group with a somewhat tired appearance. He recently started as a manager and wants to do his job well. He talked with another participants and mentioned that it is hard work as a new manager. His team was just […]
Every person has talents, by using them fully the best results can be achieved. In this context I like to share an inspiring example of an orchestra. Another way of experiencing music; a creative and inspiring combination. The passion of the group is clearly visible on stage. Talking with one of the orchestra members I […]
Do you have a clear vision? Most organizations have a vision these days, a clear picture of who they want to be in the future. There are however not so many people who have a very clear picture of their own future while it can bring so much. Research show that with a vision you […]
