Do You Mind The Business? Mind The Mind

Your company culture and the well-being of your employees have a significant impact on their engagement and innovative power, and thus directly affect the future success of your organisation.

Do you see a need for action in your company? But do you lack the necessary knowledge? Or is the path of successful implementation unclear? Together we can make it happen. I am happy to support you in the selective transfer of the necessary knowledge and/or the consulting over a longer period of time.

Since I’m convinced that every form of change begins within oneself, my offerings build on personality and team development, whereby I combine the theoretical knowledge of neuroscience with practice and reflection.

Areas of competence

In addition to the core areas of personality, leadership and cultural development, which form the foundation of every successful organisation, we also specialise in other related topics. Click below to learn more.

Of all organisational and leadership aspects, the greatest potential for future business success lies in development of a culture of innovation (57%), according to the latest report by the Swiss Economic Forum (2020).
These findings are in line with many EU studies. But how can you become more innovative and creative?

Creativity is a constant challenge. There is no ready-made way to find your next creative inspiration. This is because there are countless ways in which a new idea can emerge, and AHA- moments often occur in unexpected situations of relaxation. This process can be well explained today by neuroscience.

Basically, a creative process always involves both: failures and what ends up being a success. The real work is learning to love the process, to be flexible and not give up. Fear is the greatest enemy of innovation. Stress responses biologically inhibit any creative processing in the brain. Both a corporate culture characterised by inclusion and psychological safety as well as a curious mindset of employees are critical to creating a brain-friendly environment for true innovation.

From investment planning to the hiring process, from strategy alignment to child raising, our daily lives are filled with seemingly simple decisions. However, many subconscious and often irrational factors affect our decision-making abilities. Understanding and acknowledging the functioning of our ‘hunter-gatherer brain’ is a prerequisite to actively mitigate biases and irrationality. Successful decision-making strategies include, among others, well-defined dynamic processes, the use of collective intelligence, and the cultivating of a curious and open mind.

More and more employees suffer from stress-related symptoms. In the  Stress Job Index 2020 the Swiss Institute for Health Promotion reports the following figures:

  • Nearly 1 in 3 employees feel emotionally drained.
  • The number of stressed employees has increased by 20% from 2014 – 2020.
  • The stress-related loss of productivity costs the Swiss economy CHF 7.6 billions/year.

Moreover, the WHO has now officially classified burnout as an “occupational phenomenon” and sees it as one of the greatest health threats of the 21st century. To counteract this trend, do you want to support your employees in finding a healthy way to deal with difficult situations, time pressure and complexity? Or do you simply want to increase employee engagement? Many studies have shown that Mindfulness increases resilience and well-being.

What customers say

In our many years of working together, I particularly appreciated Claudia’s creativity and her excellent rhetoric and presentation skills. She can motivate people, facilitate in a very intuitive and authentic way and create a positive group dynamic.

Marijana Chlistalla

Global Medical Director, F. Hoffmann-La Roche

Like my colleagues, I enjoyed the inspiring, content-rich, and excellently delivered leadership program, ‘Search Inside Yourself’. A lot of food for thought, coupled with some very practical advice, is of great benefit both professionally and personally.

Jean-Manual Richier

CEO, HSBC Bank plc. Switzerland

Due to her excellent knowledge of neuroscience in combination with an empathic facilitation style, Claudia was able to strongly connect with the group and stimulate deep reflection during our two development days.

Jack Van Strien

CEO Personal Care, Philips

The customised, 6-months programme ‘mindfulness-based stress and energy management’  was delivered by Claudia in a very accessible, empathic and pragmatic way. Her deep technical knowledge and the high level of facilitation skills helped us all to stay on track.

Lydia Haueter

Senior Asset Manager, Pictet Banking Group

For me, (sales) success starts in the head. The inner attitude, our mindset and resilience, are key. Claudia introduced us to the science around optimism and resilience in an impressive, understandable way and at eye level. For me and my team, it was a great experience that we build on in the future.

Patrick Cantieni

General Agent, Mobiliar

The presentation “What inspires us” by the two power women Claudia Thali and Judith Wernli (SRF3) was the perfect mix of emotion, entertainment and science. It was very inspiring, touching, enlightening and thought provoking. We can only recommend this tandem!

Kerstin Luginbühl

Marketing Manager, Raiffeisen Bank

The ‘Search Inside Yourself’ program developed at Google helped us to sustainably improve our internal and interdisciplinary cooperation, communication and also our resilience. The inspiring and at the same time scientifically conveyed program was the starting point for a new era of togetherness.

Remo Bühlmann

Head of Non-Academic Staff Radiology, Inselspital

For me, the way you introduced us to the topics of team development and the alternation of theory and practical work was very enriching! Valuable conversations arose between you and our team, but also among ourselves, which we can use well in everyday life. This day made me feel once again how much potential there is in our team.
