What are you passionate about?

True enthusiasm comes from within. It is all about meaning and purpose. It is about the "why and what for" of tasks, projects and strategies. The "why" or the pupose is the source of our inspiration and the basis of our motivation. 

How do you light the fire in others?

If you want to get employees or colleagues to take action or if you want customers to decide in your favor, you need to understand how your behavior affects the motivation of others.

What do managers need today?

In our current book "Leadership Y" we show that motivation has only partly to do with facts. Rather, it is about enthusiasm, orientation and identification. Managers need a feel for people, for moods and for atmospheres. A firm attitude, a bunch of courage and a mindful mind are required.

What management science proves

As a manager, your behavior significantly influences the motivation of your employees and thus the culture and success of your organization. In times of great insecurity and increasing physical distance, this requires managers who provide orientation and trust. But also earn the others' trust and their followship.

A convincing mission, a touching vision, connecting values, customer orientation and clear leadership principles are just as important as a convincing strategy, a customer-centered organization and functioning management processes.

Our Conviction

As international consultants, St. Gallen leadership lecturers and former managers in the financial industry and in the medical device industry, we are convinced that today's highly qualified employees want to develop their strengths, pursue their interests and bring their passion to the table. They do not want anyone who steers and controls them.

Instead, they are looking for an environment for which they can be enthusiastic. By following role models, feeling challenged and encouraged. And where they discover opportunities to develop professionally and personally.

These 'high potentials' want to work for companies and bosses that are worth their efforts. They want to work with supervisors who make them understand how they contribute to the big picture.

Seien Sie mutig! Oder wie Ihnen emotionale Intelligenz bei Entscheidungen hilft.

Der Wunsch, die absolut richtige Entscheidung treffen zu wollen, kann uns unentschlossen machen. Dabei gibt es «richtige» Entscheidungen eigentlich nicht. Allein schon deshalb, weil wir – insbesondere im Geschäftsleben – Entscheidungen treffen müssen, ohne über alle Informationen zu verfügen. Ausserdem würde uns in komplexen Situationen eine Fülle an Informationen gar nicht nützlich sein. Dem Benediktiner-Mönch Pater Anselm Grün zufolge sollten wir besser nach klugen Entscheidungen trachten statt nach richtigen. Eine kluge Entscheidung ist eine, die Wege in die Zukunft öffnet (inspiriert durch Anselm Grün 2019).

«Wir sind nicht nur Gewinn-Maximierer,
sondern auch Sinn-Maximierer!»

Psychologische, soziologische und ökonomische Studien renommierter Forschungseinrichtungen wie etwa dem Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) zeigen, dass sich gut ausgebildete Menschen, die komplexe, konzeptionelle, geistige Arbeit verrichten, nur bedingt mit Geld motivieren lassen.

Self Leadership: Why we react the way we do and how we better manage ourselves

Five effective recommendations for better self leadership

The circumstances have never been better for a fulfilling and successful life. Medical progress enables us to become old and healthy. Labour law and social coverage offer extensive security. Due to our high level of education we are better qualified than ever before and can choose jobs and careers we want to pursue. Despite these great developments, reality shows a different picture: we get more and more stressed, frustrated, exhausted or even sick as the enormous increase of depression or burnout-rate indicates.
