#Designing digitization (PDF)

Digital has reached a limit for our employees - there is no more room for more!

"I still enjoy holding a book (in its paper version) in my hands. I feel that we've reached a point where digitalization and artificial intelligence are enough. Where is all this heading? I can't keep up anymore!"

Do you know sentences like these, either from yourself or from others?

That's one side of the coin. Where you see a benefit for yourself, digital is okay, such as online ordering, price comparison, YouTube, WhatsApp, ...

Of course, it can be challenging, requiring concentration and support to engage with new things. To get from point A to point B, you can go alone, using your own strength on foot or by bicycle. It can be easier and more enriching to travel in a group.

Designing learning journeys, accompanying change and transformation projects will take an even bigger role in the future - also for SystemicScout.

We must shape digitalization...

#Coach-Attitudes (PDF)

I would be much more successful with a good coach!

That's what a colleague told me, who is stuck in a slump.
"You're also a coach and even train coaches. Let me explain it briefly to you ..."

In a (friendly and pro bono 😉) conversation, he tells me about all his difficulties and finally asks me, "What would you do in my situation?"

How do you feel in such situations?
And how should I deal with it now?
What do you think?

#AI - Change and Creativity (PDF)

The combination of human creativity and artificial intelligence makes the difference!

While AI can assist us in processing data and automating processes, our human creativity provides the opportunity to develop new ideas and solutions.

Therefore, we should embrace collaboration with AI and adapt to change. How can we do this? By leveraging our skills and intelligence to fully harness the potential of AI.

Together, we can shape the change and create a better future.

How can we shape the change? What are your ideas?

#Mixed Teams (PDF)

Experienced employees are like experienced sailors - they are invaluable in stormy times.

Those who know me are aware of my interest in water sports, especially sailing. That's why sailing-related stories often come to mind.

Imagine a voyage where an experienced team of sailors is on board. These sailors have seen a lot and know the sea and its challenges well. However, one day a storm breaks out, putting the ship in danger. The team of sailors leverages all their knowledge and experience to navigate the ship safely through the storm. They know how to set the sails correctly, how to handle the waves most effectively, and how to remain calm and composed in difficult situations.

Now, imagine that there are no experienced sailors on board, and only young, inexperienced sailors have to steer the ship. They have acquired a lot of knowledge during their training and are familiar with the latest instruments. However, when the storm hits, they are overwhelmed and unsure of how to react. They are uncertain about which sails to set and how to navigate the ship through the waves. In this situation, it quickly becomes clear that the experience of the older sailors is of immeasurable value.

The rules of sailing and navigation are still the same today as they were before. However, modern sailing ships are technologically advanced, and climate change is altering the conditions. Therefore, a mixed team of experienced and modern-trained sailors makes sense.

Do mixed teams make sense in your environment? And why? What do you think?

#The Heart of Your Business

"Sometimes, I feel a bit lost and doubt ... in my work ... in its meaning ... in its success …“

It seems like I can no longer keep up with the pace, and my own business is hitting a roadblock.

But how do I find my way back to the right rhythm, both for myself and my team?

As an executive, entrepreneur, or self-employed individual, it is important to believe in oneself and remember the heart of the business.

In my work as a coach, consultant and trainer, I experience again and again how important it is to keep an eye on the heart and make sure that it beats in the right rhythm. But what is the best way to do this? What helps to make the organization fit for the future?

#Mastering change (PDF)

Changes are inevitable - but how they are managed makes the difference. People are the key to success.

Change can sometimes be like navigating a ship through stormy weather. Like a captain who safely guides their ship through adverse conditions, an organization must be able to successfully manage changes to achieve its goals.

In such a situation, it is important for the captain not only to be able to determine the destination and set the course but also to be flexible enough to adapt to changing conditions.

The captain's and their team's decisions on the bridge can determine the fate of the ship. Everyone relies on the expertise and support of the crew.

Changes can only be successfully managed when all employees are involved and motivated to contribute their skills and experiences. This makes the difference when it comes to safely navigating the company through the stormy waters of change.

Changes often require a paradigm shift - a change in mindset and approach to work. It is not just about changing processes and methods but also questioning the beliefs and habits of employees. Therefore, successful change requires a deep understanding of existing paradigms and the ability to transform them.

How do you handle changes?
What is your contribution to ensure that you can navigate through difficult changes like a well-led ship?

#Personal Growth (PDF)

Growth? ... Become the best version of yourself you can be!

After completing my computer science studies, I developed a strong interest in AI. There were only a few AI centers in Germany, and I had contacts with projects in Darmstadt, Hamburg, Kaiserslautern, and Saarbrücken. What became clear quickly: a lot of research and foundational work was still necessary. Similarly, the hardware wasn't truly powerful enough. I didn't want to pursue a doctoral thesis, and AI wasn't (yet) applicable in the business world. Therefore...
My priorities shifted away from pure computer science toward other emerging subjects. Diversity in tasks, flexibility in activities, and an interest in the new have shaped my path since then. With numerous trainings, qualifications, and experiences, I bring my expertise into projects, leadership roles, coaching, as well as training and education.

Personally, I've gained a wealth of experience through observing and supporting people in projects. I've grown personally because I've embraced it.
  • No growth without change.
  • No change without motivation.
  • No motivation without personal goals.
I've grown in challenging situations!
External impulses have broadened my perspective and the realm of possibilities!

#Learning and Teaching (PDF)

Learning - The Key to Success?!

What have we learned from our experiences with learning so far? And how can we use this knowledge to be successful in business?

We are all familiar with the highs and lows of learning. Moments of inspiration where we have grown beyond ourselves, and moments of frustration where we have felt challenged. These experiences shape us and teach us valuable lessons.

The key lies in learning from our experiences and consciously evolving ourselves. How can I tap into my full potential?

The experiences of learning have shown us that continuous growth is the key to adapting to a constantly changing environment. Every challenge and setback offers an opportunity to expand our skills and gain new perspectives.

A good learning process encourages you to explore new ways of learning.

As educators, we have a great influence on the success of our participants. We inspire not only through our content, methods, and pedagogy but also by establishing a positive learning culture in our environment.

Seize every opportunity to elevate your learning and teaching to the next level!

#Wisdom (PDF)

Wisdom Like a Tree: Why We Need Patience to Develop Deep Roots

Perhaps you also know this from your parents ...

I had goals, wishes and visions for my life ... my parents had them too - for me. They then gladly took every opportunity to tell me what to do - because from their point of view, with their history, with their goals and wishes and on the basis of their experiences, that's how things should be!

Of course, I now assume they had good intentions to protect me from making mistakes and facing failures ;-)

In my youth, I often felt this constricting and intrusive enough. My response was rebellion. When my parents accepted that I had a mind of my own, they started letting go more and more.

Now I have gained a lot of experience in my life - good and bad - my very personal learnings. One of these learnings: Don't do it like your parents!
As a father, there were moments when I caught myself and said to myself "You just did that like your parents?! - Well bravo - so much for self-discipline ..."

But there were also situations in which I consciously decided on a similar behavior (and of course had good reasons for it).

What I recognized was that the roots of my behavior are also in my history. Regardless of this, I have my own will and freedom to shape things. So I have developed my own strong roots that continue to grow and constantly need nutrients.

Today I want to share an inspiring story about wisdom ...

#Change and Adaption (PDF)

The Power of Adaptation: In Change, We Discover Our True Strength!

Professionally and privately, we encounter limits and rules that provide us with security and guidance. Sometimes, they can also feel restrictive, and you are looking for the degrees of freedom.

But what happens when familiar boundaries suddenly shift? When the spaces we know change, and we find ourselves in an unfamiliar environment? In such moments, it requires a special kind of adaptation from us.

It can be daunting for you to navigate uncharted territory and let go of old habits. However, it is precisely in these times of change that the opportunity arises to discover yourself in new ways and uncover your true strength.

If we face the challenge and embark on this path of growth, we can grow beyond ourselves and drive our personal development.

Let yourself be guided by your inner voice, which calls for security but also carries the courage to change and unleash your full potential.

#Maturity - Inner Growth (PDF)

"It is time to act professionally and approach things seriously!"

The boss's gaze is focused on the entire round. Everyone knows his thoughts: "What kind of kindergarten is that again?". Finally, a sentence directed at the project manager: "You can handle it, right...?" and he leaves the room quickly.

When I think of kindergarten, I immediately think of socialization and the starting point for growing up. Maybe the child should learn how children should be and be prepared for the school that teaches them, how adults should be?! And then you come into the world of work ... But let's leave that aside.

Personal maturity is like growing up your personality. It's about making smarter decisions, taking responsibility and dealing well with other people. Personal growth, on the other hand, is like the blossoming of your skills and talents. It means developing, learning new things and leaving your comfort zone. So maturity is more related to your attitude and behavior, while growth focuses on your skills and knowledge. Both are important aspects to become a better version of yourself.

In our professional journey, we encounter not only challenges and successes, but also the continuous development of our personal maturity. It is that inner maturity that enables us to deal with setbacks and learn from them. It allows us to keep a clear head and to act wisely even in turbulent times.

Personal maturity in the work environment means taking responsibility for our decisions and building our actions on a foundation of values and experiences. It empowers us to approach conflicts constructively and shape our interpersonal relationships with respect and empathy.

Looking back on our own journey, we may recognize moments when we have grown. Perhaps it was challenging projects that pushed us to our limits or team challenges where we found solutions that benefited everyone involved. These experiences have shaped us and fostered our personal maturity.

Let's use these insights and contribute together to a working environment that is a place where openness, willingness to learn and mutual respect thrive.
Together we can continue to grow and bring about a positive change.

#Respect and Empathy (PDF)

"That wasn't bad ... but it wasn't good either!"

It was another one of those seminars in which the participants were more likely to seek confirmation for their behavior. They presented their practical examples and explained, if necessary, why their behavior was appropriate and right. They were managers who spoke about goals, pressure to perform and responsibility for their employees. They were looking for additional tools to be successful.

A few tried to appear empathetic, to practice empathy superficially in the truest sense. So to awaken the appearance to achieve something. They understood the method and used a tool. However, most observers during our seminar exercises recognized a lack of authenticity, but praised the behavior as promising in practice. The motto was: "That wasn't bad ... but it wasn't good either! ... but feasible." The reaction of the recipients of this feedback ranged from pride to irritation.

A participant, who was very self-reflective and curious and showed real interest in the people with whom he came into contact, seemed rather authentic to the others. He really wanted to recognize the needs and perspectives of his conversation partners and deal with them openly. The feedback from the observers was sobering: "One shouldn't deny oneself and show interest in others to such an extent. After all, this also costs the time and energy that is needed for the actual leadership." For the protagonist, a blow in the stomach pit - that had hit. In the course of the discussion, I realized that something crucial was missing: respect.

If we accept respect as an attitude based on self-knowledge and appropriate social behavior, we can develop true empathy. It is about recognizing and accepting the diversity of the experiences of others without judgment or prejudice.

For many, efficiency is what matters, and they like to consider it as success. How effective they were, or rather, the harm they caused, is often dismissed as "someone else's problem."

In a world where speed counts, in which techniques and methods can be learned by video, or should I say, can be watched casually, true respect is the decisive factor that elevates us from beginners to experts.

Respect is the key to genuine excellence - without it, there is no real empathy.

#Values - Anchors For Attitude (PDF)

"A society without shared values is like a ship without a compass - at the mercy of uncertainty and the danger of sinking."

One topic that is of central importance to me as a SystemicScout, as a coach, consultant, and trainer, is values and their role as anchors for our attitude.

Values are the pillars of our personality. They provide us with clear direction and help us remain steadfast in turbulent times. Just like a ship at sea, we also need a solid foundation to withstand the storms of life (including in our professional lives).

They influence our actions, decisions, and relationships with others. Values are our internal compass needles that guide us on the right path. When we consciously engage with our values and act accordingly, we can develop a clear and consistent attitude.

#Ability.Art.Artist (PDF)

Successful training, consulting and coaching is an art.

I invite you to get to know my mindset and approach. In my work, I place great value on tailored solutions and a sustainable development process, so that you and everyone involved can unleash their potential.

Ability includes the ability to use the specific skills and talent of a person to achieve outstanding results.
Art, on the other hand, goes beyond that and involves the creative expression of ideas, emotions and concepts.
As a trainer, consultant and coach, I combine my skills with the art of designing and implementing effective measures and projects that also inspire and stimulate reflection.

Every training, every advice and every coaching is a unique work of art that is designed with care and dedication.
By responding to the individual needs of my customers and recognizing their progress and successes, I create an atmosphere of appreciation and mutual respect.

What does a successful trainer, consultant or coach need? It goes beyond pure expertise. It requires the ability to build relationships, create trust and continuously develop.
Which of these qualities are particularly important for you/you as a client?

As a participant, client or recipient of a training, consultation or coaching, you may also have questions: What is important in order to be supported in the best possible way?
What are your experiences and expectations of the process?
