THE MORE YOU SHINE, THE LESS THERE IS DARKNESS

Get inspired and inspire. Challenge your thinking and develop. Set goals and achieve them. Listen to others and make a difference.

DREAM STAR

Motivation and motivating are issues that have a strong influence on every supervisor, those who coach or teach, as well as parents or anyone involved in binging up children, and those with educational responsibilities. They affect everyone at work, every student, athlete and those with hobbies. They concern all who perform in a group or in a team. Motivation and motivating are meaningful issues for everyone with desire to go forward, grow and develop and to all those, who want to achieve anything.

But to anyone else, motivation doesn’t really matter.

There’s Room Inside the Box

Boxes are bad. They are tight and prevent us from thinking, at least anything slightly different or new. Being inside a box is like plugging off one’s brain and destroying the capability to change and renew. Whenever there’s a need for innovative ideas and creation, the first thing to do is to somehow win the gravity of the box and crawl outside – to free yourself from the suffocating box. And then, just like that, groundbreaking ideas just start popping up…

WORKSHOPS

The workshops and seminar topics/approaches are always designed with your needs in mind. Each topic can be addressed separately or can be combined with multiple topics, tailored to fit your needs, desires and audiences.

Well-being during the workday and after it – Do you have to keep going?

separator

Well-being is a topic that generates a lot of discussion: emotional well-being, physical well-being, well-being at work. And yet, so many do not feel well. Does well-being actually mean ill-being?

Emotional Intelligence vs. IQ – The Prisoner of Genes and the Victim of Circumstances

separator

What can you do about it? Some people just are more intelligent than others. If you have inherited the less intelligent genes, grew up in a concrete jungle, watching bad tv, is there anything you can do? Or could intelligence be more than what is meant traditionally?

Succeed in Change – Change to Succeed

separator

Everyone knows the concept of resistance to change. However, most people do not resist changes. Most actually support it. Change is seen as a positive thing, as long as everything remains the same.

Different Personality Types – Conflict or Collaboration?

separator

How can there be so many idiots in the world? It is easy to get along with some people and conversation just flows. But then there are those, well, idiots. It is just not possible to get things working or to find some mutual understanding. If you manage to start a conversation, it is so boring that it takes everything just to stay awake. Things just do not work.

I know I always behave the correct way. So there has to be someone else to blame!

Interaction – Ask, Listen and Answer, with and without Words

separator

What we remember the best in discussions are the things we said. However, talking is just one part of interaction. The smallest part. Besides talking, interaction consist of listening and nonverbal communication, the messages without words.

But how is our message understood if it contradicts – with words or without them?

Why? Not a Question but an Answer

separator

We usually know what we do. Most also know how they do what they do. But why do we do what we do? And why does it matter? It is not an opinion. It is about biology.

Motivation – Why Does It Move Me?

separator

Motivation drives us forward even when we are tired. To push ourselves harder even when we are not sure how to. To do what first seemed impossible. In order to motivate ourselves or others, we need to be familiar with the tools to create and to maintain this enabling power. Motivation cannot be forced, but it can be gently persuaded…

Enthusiasm, Willpower and Habits – What if You Just Don’t Feel Like It

separator

With enthusiasm things go smoothly, spontaneously. But what if there is no enthusiasm, if you just do not feel like it? How is willpower generated and how can it be developed? What about our habits? Can they be changed, or are we just creatures of our habits?

I Think, Therefore I Am – Wrong

separator

We think we see and experience the world the as it is. This, however, is not how it really is. Instead, we see the world the way it is not. All we have is our reality. The only thing everyone sees the same is the idea that I see and experience the world as it is, and that the others see it as I see it.

The Power of Goals – Reaching for the Possible Impossible

separator

If set right, goals can create strong motivation and desire to go beyond the ordinary. However, if goals are not set properly, there is a risk of poor performance and diluted development, which probably was not the goal of setting the goal…
