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

Areas of Expertise

We are supporting leaders and organisations in developing a collaborative, creative and resilient mindset and culture. A future-oriented leadership style as well as a culture of openness and curiosity build the foundation of good employee wellbeing, excellent decision-making and more innovation. Click on each item below to learn more about current challenges and potential solutions in the specific areas.

Creativity and Innovation

Of all organizational and managerial aspects, most potential for future business success lays in the development of an innovation culture (57%) according to the latest report (August 2020) by the Swiss Economic Forum. These findings are in line with many studies across and also outside of the EU. But how to become more innovative and creative?

Creativity is a constant challenge and we all struggle with it. And there’s no singular way to find your next creative inspiration. That’s because there are innumerable ways in which a new idea can spring up and AHA moments often happen in unexpected situations of relaxation. A process which can nowadays be well explained by neuroscience.

The creative process is as much about the failures as it is about what eventually ends up as a success. The real work comes from learning how to love that process, to be flexible with it, to unlearn and not give up. Fear is the enemy of innovation. Stress reactions biologically inhibit any creative processing in the brain. A company culture of psychological safety and inclusion, and the employees’ mindset are both key in providing a brain-friendly environment for true innovation.

Biases and Decision-Making

From investment planning to hiring, from strategizing to raising children – our everyday lives are full of seemingly simple decisions and interactions. However, many unexpected and often irrational factors affect our decision-making. Understanding and acknowledging these factors, including the functioning of our ‘hunter-gatherer brain’, is the only way we can proactively counteract them. Successful decision-making strategies include dynamic decision-making processes, the wise use of collective intelligence and a curious mind.

Resilience and Wellbeing

More and more employees suffer from stress-related symptoms. In the Stress-Job-Index 2020 (Sept 2020), the Swiss Health Promotion Institute reports the following numbers:

  • Every 3rd working person feels emotionally drained
  • The amount of stressed people in the workforce has increased by 20% from 2014 – 2020
  • The productivity loss due to stress costs the Swiss economy about 7.6 bio 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.
