Life is about Finding. Truth, Wisdom, Wealth, Health, Friends, Fame, Fulfillment, Happiness, Kindness, Peace. When we are in the process of Finding, we’re alive. Vital. And there is always something that we can find. New horizons. New friends. New insights. New favorite recipes. And ourselves. We live to find.
How to gain access to your creative self
I always ask people in workshops when they have their best ideas. The answers are as diverse as they are funny and telling. During a longer run or bicycle ride, on the commute from work, under the shower or while spending time in the bathroom for other reasons. Notice one thing? No one mention their workplace. No one says they have their best ideas between 8 and 5 during the workweek.
Our brain delivers the moment of clarity, the divine spark, when it wants to, not when it has to.
Supercharge your career with your core values!
A listener of this podcast has found the movie I was referring to in the episode about natural born leaders. Watching the movie after 35 years made me change the subject of today's episode: How much does the position define a person and how much person can you bring into a position. Who are we, when and where and why?

How does fear impact culture and performance?
I have a list of things that I want to share in this podcast series and I'm always waiting for a spark during the week which subject to pursue. This week it came from the feedback of a podcast listener. The eMail read: Dirk, can you please make an episode about fear? Should employees be afraid of somebody or something and how does fear impact culture & performance?
Being brief: Those 98 characters opened a world of opportunity
Being brief or concise can be very helpful. Most of us aren’t very efficient communicators though, myself included. When I need to be brief, I follow a rule which I call the 140 character rule. Get in touch: email@example.com. Thanks for listening.
Natural Born Leaders do exist (but I’d rather work with professionals)
I have my opinion whether leaders are born - or made. But as always, I do my research before I turn on the mic. And boy, I fell into another rabbit hole. Like the other week when I tried to define clarity.
Overcoming One-Sidedness (MBTI Debrief)
Last week I've said we're going to do a Myers-Briggs personality type (MBTI) debrief together. It is the mother of all introspective tests and is based on CG Jung's 1921 book on personality types. Grab your old MBTI or do a fresh one at either 16personalities.com for free or get the full 20 pages deep report at mbtionline.com for money. Either is good to follow along. Welcome to the beginning of the end of one-sidedness.
