We run yesterday a workshop on transformative leadership for Capacity Zurich with Anna Stando. One of the tools and lessons learned related to our entrepreneurial journeys is the so-called "creative confidence". Many years ago, I came across this notion when a magical book landed in my lap and became one of the most important books for me in the years...Read More

#creativity #entrepreneurship #communication

This week I'm reflecting on creativity, entrepreneurship, and communication. Three things that I have been focusing on (to many different extents) over the last five years.

I had this palm face or face palm 🙈 moment at the end of May when I opened the door of my apartment after a month of constant traveling and just faced the reality of it: Messy, dirty (the apartment), and the never-ending to-do list - also messy and dirty💡 Ideas lying on the floor 💡💡 Ideas screaming from the...Read More

#creativity #traveling #search

We sit outside in the circle on the blankets. Flames are dancing in a bonfire and singing unsung songs to the sun. Many leaves coordinating their dance with the wind finally found their way to the ground. The sun has already managed to wrap itself in a blanket and go to bed. Autumn. It is chilly.

On the responsibility of creativity

When I met Cathlene for the first time, I was deeply touched by the authenticity, talents and trust she gives to other people and the world despite many life adventures, circumstances and challenges she faced. So when she invited me to speak at her podcast "Create Imperfect Anyway" about one of my favorite topics (surprise, surprise) creativity, I couldn't wait...Read More
