Each of us is a world cham­pi­on. After all, each of us mas­ters his or her own life, his or her own world, every day. How can we cul­ti­vate this mas­tery in every­day life?

An excel­lent mod­el is hand­ed to us by Amer­i­can psy­chol­o­gist Mar­tin Selig­man, which shows us how we can expe­ri­ence our­selves as suc­cess­ful world cham­pi­ons. The mod­el is called: PERMA.

The pow­er of pos­i­tive psychology

Pos­i­tive emo­tions — grat­i­tude, inspi­ra­tion, hope and curios­i­ty not only bring a smile on our face, they also boost our health and performance.

Engage­ment – with a cause, a project, or peo­ple; it lets us expe­ri­ence momen­tum and focus in the here and now.

Rela­tion­ships – sat­is­fy our need for con­tact and con­nec­tions with others.

Mean­ing – we expe­ri­ence our poten­tial when we serve some­thing greater than our­selves: This can be fam­i­ly, com­mu­ni­ty, a cre­ative or char­i­ta­ble commitment.

Accom­plish­ment – win­ning is not every­thing. It is also impor­tant to enjoy the game and enjoy what has been accomplished.

Mas­tery of Life

We should always find oppor­tu­ni­ties to con­grat­u­late our­selves on our life cham­pi­onship”. PER­MA can be a dai­ly anchor in this regard, to acti­vate our good feel­ings towards our­selves and our lives. 

The anthem for this comes from Andreas Bourani:

Ein Hoch auf uns (Con­grats to us)
Auf dieses Leben (To this life)
Auf den Moment (To the moment)
Der immer bleibt (That always remains)
Ein Hoch auf uns (Con­grats to us)
Auf jet­zt und ewig (To now and forever).”

Agile Leadership - a Mindset, not a Tool set

Agile Leadership - a Mindset, not a Tool set

The cur­rent dynam­ics of devel­op­ments affect all indus­tries and com­pa­nies. How can we ade­quate­ly deal with such volatil­i­ty? The agile” approach is seen as an answer to this ques­tion. But what exact­ly is agile and what defines agile leadership?
