Providing Psychological Safety in a BANI World

Providing Psychological Safety in a BANI World The present war in Ukraine has reminded us how our world’s stability is all but relative and fragile. Just another sign of this BANI (Brittle, Anxious, Non-Linear, Incomprehensible) World. As if the humanitarian situation in Ukraine was not enough in itself, the rest of Europe and the world will definitely feel the earthquake aftershocks because of our ever-growing interconnectedness that condemns us all to food and energy security failures and negative impact on general trade.  The sheer size of the catastrophe is a major factor that contributes to the prevailing anxiety and adds to the confusing complexity of our nonlinear world: the multiple causes and impacts (even the yet unforeseen consequences that will […]

Do you Want to Live a Life Full of Purpose?

Purpose

Did you just have another day where you cleaned up your desk, wondered what you had achieved today, and got home to a stack of dishes, a pile of clothes, and a crying son? Did you spend last night driving your daughter to SCUBA class, squeezed in a conference call, and forgot that it was your mother’s birthday?

We keep ourselves too busy to meet a new […]

My favorite Productivity Hacks

Productivity Hacks

In consulting firms, you have to maintain a timesheet in which you document daily how you use your time. This can be great to give you an understanding of where you are focused and where your priorities lie. Similarly, you can increase the value of this exercise by maintaining a daily diary in which you document your accomplished tasks (Have-Done-Diary). I recommend a notebook and handwriting for this exercise.

Getting out of the November Blues

November Colors

Getting out of the November Blues I’m sure you’ve noticed the arrival of fall by now – the avalanche of brilliant red-golden leaves falling from trees, the shortening of precious daylight hours, and the sudden briskness in the breeze. While the beauty of a European fall is unparalleled, for some people the shorter days and cold weather heralds a period of demotivation and negative feelings. For me, it is the “Zurich fog” in November that can get to me.  Considering the current situation and the consequent loss of freedom, the thought of November could be overwhelming. So I have thought about ways to make November bearable for all of us. Dealing with feelings of loneliness is doubly tough when you […]
