people – and their work in different cultures

What impresses us
and makes us curious
Companies and people who are courageously and successfully trying out new forms of cooperation, working and living in a wide range of environments. They feel and know that the old forms of hierarchical decision-making structures will no longer be successful because they are too slow, because the underlying knowledge is out of date and because they represent the corporate structure more than the ever-changing world. We are impressed by those organizations and people who do not let themselves be deterred from thinking and acting, renewing old approaches, taking the risk of being part of the permanent change. (Some selected examples)
People who give thought-provoking ideas, who are open to new ideas and accompany them but also staying critical. We are open and impressed by ideas being created in all sort of arts, music, dance and theater, painting and poetry, as well as for stimuli coming from practice and research.
Here are two examples from the latter area – in addition to many other inspirations:
Frederic Laloux: Reinventing Organizations
Steven van Belleghem: The Conversation Company – Managing The 4 C’s
… and, last but not least we are and stay impressed by the fascinating collective knowledge and wisdom about human existence, about being and becoming, about existence and change which has emerged in different cultures and between them over the centuries. This applies to religion and philosophy in Buddhism and Zen as well as the European traditions of the early Greek schools till today day, the wisdom in Indian cultures as well as in the Inuit or the Touareg, and many other peoples. All peoples have always dealt intensively with the questions which try to grasp the essence of life as a permanent change searching meaningful ways for coexistence and work.
We constantly learn and so many times we are surprised – and we enjoy very much to make the next step in understanding a bit more of this wisdom.
