Mind The Mind for Better Outcomes, Leadership and Wellbeing
If you want to move the world, get yourself moving first.” Sokrates

Organisations don’t transform, people do. And their mindset, a mindset 4.0, will be key for future success. Cultural change, outstanding leadership and high performance always start within yourself, independent of your role. Knowing yourself and applying self-directed learning will not only enable you to succeed but also bring out the best in everyone around you.

Areas of Expertise

According to our view, culture & leadership, diversity & inclusion as well as resilience & wellbeing are strongly interlinked and improvement in one aspect positively influences the others. Click on each item below to learn more about current challenges in these areas and potential solutions.

Culture & Leadership

The demands of our fast-paced, globally connected world are highly complex. In order to succeed, high self-awareness, social skills, focus and openness, intrinsic motivation and creativity as well as general wellbeing are prerequisites. In short, we need a mindset 4.0.

To maintain the competitive edge, many companies, such as Google, Apple, Goldman Sachs, SAP, Siemens, Novartis, Roche and many more aim at leveraging the mind’s full potential by offering leadership trainings that are based on neuroscience and/ or mindfulness. In addition, many managers work with a personal development coach on a regular basis, especially in times of change. To adopt our own agile, innovative mindset 4.0 is already a challenge. Fostering this in others is the supreme discipline.

Diversity & Inclusion

Apart from the proven fact that diversity leads to better business results, many studies also show that social conflicts, such as “feeling excluded”, represent the most serious stress factors in the workplace. They have a strong impact not only on the performance of the individual but also on that of the entire team. Imagine what business successes would be possible in a fully inclusive environment.

In order to achieve inclusion, we need to understand the natural functioning of our hunter-gatherer brain and our (un)conscious beliefs and, if necessary, consciously counteract them. Furthermore, we have to deal with where and to what extent artificial intelligence (AI) is helpful and how it cements current imbalances and thus undermines equal opportunities.

Diversity only works with a conscious, daily effort of inclusion. This means proactively engaging in inclusive behaviours and creating an environment in which everyone is treated fairly and respectfully, has equal access to opportunities and resources, can be themselves and at the same time be allowed to contribute fully to the success of the organisation. Not only a diverse but rather an inclusive environment is the prerequisite for innovation, change, agility and high performance.

Resilience & Wellbeing

More and more employees suffer from stress-related symptoms. In the Stress-Job-Index 2018, the Swiss Health Promotion Institute reports the following numbers:

  • Every 4th working person feels emotionally drained
  • The amount of stressed people in the workforce has increased by 20% from 2015-2018
  • The productivity loss due to stress costs the Swiss economy about 6.5bio CHF/year

In addition, Burn Out is now officially classified by the WHO as an “occupational phenomenon” and regarded as one of the biggest health threats in the 21st century. To counteract the trend, you want to support your employees to confidently find healthier ways to handle difficult situations, time pressure and complexity. Or you just simply want to increase retention and employee engagement. Mindfulness has been proven in many studies to increase resilience and wellbeing.

Combine Neuroscience
with Mindfulness-Based Approaches

In broad terms, neuroscientific behavioural research is concerned with how people generally process and respond to information, while mindfulness-based practices are devoted to focusing on the individual exploration of inner and outer experiences in the moment. Integrating the understanding of how our brains work with self-observation and reflection tools significantly increases our self- as well as social awareness – a prerequisite for smart decision making, resilience building and outstanding leadership.
