Where all think alike, no one thinks very much.

lead/culture AWAKEs, GROWs, INSPIREs individuals & businesses to become inspiration/leaders and intuition/companies to make a difference every day: Outgrow Yourself, Inspire the World!

Ich bin erst zufrieden, wenn ich begeistert bin.

(©2005 - more true each day)

Digitalization, the web, and mobility maximize human's individuality, independence, and impatience with unprecedented power and pace.

New consumers call for innovative playing fields (markets), new rules (business models), and new players adding innovative thinking (leadership).

New entrepreneurs create revolutionary, skyrocketing business models and markets, products and services - unmatched by traditional managers, brands, and businesses.

Still too many of them are trapped in now obsolete structures, concepts, and cultures. Too much did they invest in their out-dated beliefs and yesterday's successes.


We cannot solve our problems with the same
thinking we used when we created them.
Albert Einstein

The corporate minds must finally outgrow themselves and courageously live entrepreneurial independence, brilliance & relevance. - A paradigm shift is overdue! - #stopmakingsense

> Distinctive Leadership Thinking: inspiration/leader.
> Distinctive Leadership Culture: intuition/company.

> Outgrow Yourself,
> Inspire the World!

Together we establish a Distinctive Leadership Thinking & Culture via the evolutionary lead/culture process and its three quite demanding milestones:

I - Awake! - [Friction makes the Sparks]
Awakes the individual's or business’s true talents and assets.

II - Grow! - [Make Yourself Redundant]
Grows individuals or businesses into brilliance to transcend the shallows of daily business and to finally focus the relevant.

III - Inspire! - [Culture is the new Strategy]
Inspires individuals or businesses to lead a life or foster a culture where everybody makes a difference every single day - for the good, benefit, and wealth of our surroundings and ourselves.

> What Difference Do You Make?
> What Value Do You Create?
> Why would anybody Miss You?

Leadership Thinking & Culture
[Talent and Change Management]

Distinctive Leadership Thinking & Culture challenges and coaches individuals and businesses by mentoring and counseling.

While inspiration/leader prioritizes the individual, intuition/company focusses on growing a shared culture.

Challenging leitmotif are my Golden Rules, leadership questionnaires, and purpose profiles.

Leadership Thinking: inspiration/leader
[growing the distinctive leadership personality]

Truly successful individuals continuously question and outgrow themselves.
They make themselves redundant!
They inspire others through their role model example.

In jedem Moment.
Vor allem, wenn gerade keiner guckt.

Together we initiate strategic intuition and visionary thinking - and help you to master your daily small and bigger-than-life challenges.

[Of course cancer or any other lethal threat to your life will challenge your believes above the ordinary. Now more than ever you need stamina and a rock-solid vision for your life and its meaning. As a cancer survivor (as we speak) I might be of some help.]

Together we identify your talents and potential, define your individual challenges, and let you finally become your authentic, relevant, and successful self - in life and business.

My Golden Rules - ©2007:

I - Awake! [Be Independent]
I Want.

Be Passionate!
Stop Making Sense! - Act! Don't Talk! - Reduce to the Max!

Be Authentic!
Be Concentrated! - Be Consistent! - Be Consequential!

Be Ambitious!
Be a Spark! - Cha[lle]nge the Game! - Leave a Mark!

II - Grow! [Be Brilliant]
I Can.

Use Your Intellect!
Challenge Yourself! - Question Everything! - Improve Continuously!

Use Your Intuition!
Beginner's Mind! - Empathy! - Pattern Recognition!

Use Your Imagination!
Childlike Curiosity! - Peripheral View! - Synthesis!

III - Inspire (the Next)! [Be Relevant]
I Am.

Deliver Context!
Connect with your Future! - ... your Culture! - ... your Nature!

Deliver Wisdom!
Use Insight! - Use Experience! - Use Good Judgement!

Deliver Clarity!

To achieve true mastery we have to think holistically: Mastery in business starts with mastery in life. True inspiration/leaders in business are first and foremost true inspiration/leaders in life.

Leadership Culture: intuition/company
[growing a distinctive role model culture]

Every corporation is an amalgam of individuals and brands. They all want to be respected and challenged, want to develop, grow, and self-actualize - united by a vision bigger than the individual's own.

Together we seed a vision-based intuitive corporate culture by growing value(s), virtues, and vibes as well as pure purpose.

My Golden Rules - ©2007:

I - Awake the Individual! [Be Independent]
