In our professional lives we often get so caught up in intellectual processes that we ignore our gut feelings. However, true leadership comes from the heart. This is what motivates employees, sparks their passion, creates ownership and boosts identification with the company’s goals. It’s the power of the moment we managers need to open up […]
You feel sufficiently prepared for your upcoming job interview and have studied everything you could possibly find about the position you have applied for: you are familiar with the company, its products, philosophy, strategy, numbers and leadership. You researched the company’s history and its outlook for the future. In short, you know the story of […]
A company’s culture depends to a large extent on how people interact with each other. Why do executives and employees struggle so often to truly live corporate values? How can working with acting methods enhance constructive teamwork? Attitude, mindfulness, and being conscious of the moment give us a greater range of action alternatives in the […]
Managers are increasingly exposed to enormous pressure, which can have a negative impact on the working atmosphere and business success.

This requires curiosity and the courage to look closely.Lucia Peraza Rios, actress and trainer at […]
According to a German proverb lazy people procrastinate and always push things they should have done today to tomorrow.Procrastination has most of the time nothing to do with laziness.Rather, we put off decisions because we are afraid to leave our comfort zone. But the more we make ourselves comfortable in this comfort zone, the more […]
Why are children so much more confident? Because they couldn’t care less about how they appear to others. They are in the moment and react to their environment in an unbiased and spontaneous way. As adults, we struggle with this kind of immediacy, because too often we get stuck in our insecurities. Acting methods support […]
One of my biggest concerns has always been finding the right tone in communication, especially in the business context. Am I making myself understood? How do I come across strong yet respectful? How do I demonstrate competence without being presumptuous? So many thoughts went through my head before even uttering one syllable that I regularly […]

Isn’t dealing with your own vulnerability, being in real contact with your inner self, your true strength?If you have the courage to show yourself openly and honestly, you no longer have to actively assert yourself. Instead, you become […]

Home office. For almost a year now. And I can’t bear my own four walls anymore. I can’t stand any longer working all day on my laptop. I can’t stand my own face in Zoom meetings anymore. And that’s not only (but also) because I haven’t been to the hairdresser’s for far too long. How […]
