Victorious warriors win first in their minds, and then go to war. Defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win. 

Sun Tzu, Author of the Art of War (544 BCE - 496 BCE)
  • Does going to work feel like waging a daily war at times?
  • Feeling like the attacks are coming from all possible angles?
  • Do you wish that work instead of war would feel like a play?

If you are

  • Tired of being attacked – by your outer or inner enemies of judgments, doubts, and disempowering thoughts,
  • Feeling isolated, lacking support
  • Wishing for a more positive circle of peers & mentors
  • Ready and motivated to turn the war into a game with our support

… then join us! 

Allow yourself to be supported so that you can support and lead powerfully your teams and organization.

With us, you can become victorious. And turn the war into a play.

Start with your inner game first. 

  • We train you.
  • We guide you.
  • We support you.

So then you can go, and lead powerfully from within – no matter in what environment you happen to be.

With us, you are not in the fight alone. 

We have your back.

And we make you win and transform not just your inner game, but also the cultural game in your company.

Ready for your inner game training to begin? 


Change how you listen and change your relationships

most people do not listen with the intent to understand most people listen with the intent to reply

Change how you listen and change your relationships

“Do I matter? Am I included? Do I have a voice?”

When someone else doesn’t gift us the time to truly listen to what we want to express, and if that happens on a continuous basis, it’s natural for us to start feeling excluded, like we don’t have a voice, as if we and our opinions and perspectives didn’t matter.

When someone does give us the gift of active listening from a kind and curious space (non-judgmental), it meets at least three of our basic human needs – to feel respected, have a sense that we belong, and that we matter and our voice matters.

? Today, I invite all of us to start with ourselves and give the gift of active, compassionate, non-judgmental, and curious listening to ourselves.

? Listen (=become aware of) not only your thoughts but also of your feelings. And be there with even those that are not comfortable and don’t feel so good.

? Instead of pushing away that fear, the anger, the anxiety, the sadness… be there with the inner “voice” that doesn’t use words. And with compassion and curiosity, listen to what kind of message it wants to give you.

? For example, what kind of personal boundary is being crossed when you feel angry? What is something important and valuable to you that seems to be being threatened, and anger is there to protect it? If sad… what are you really sad about? What do you wish were different? What is it that is important to you that is not being fulfilled? What matters to you that this feeling points to? What do you wish someone told you right now would make you feel different?

? Today, take a moment to listen to your inner “voice” with compassion, care, and curiosity.

? Today, give yourself the gift of active listening and know that you matter; you have a voice. And you are respected and valued.

? What for?

? Besides this growing your emotional intelligence (and so having access to the benefits it provides), as we strengthen the listening muscle, not only will we feel more connected, grounded, and clear within ourselves, but we will be able to connect with others better and make space for innovation, easier collaboration, stronger relationships, and better performance.

?Imagine the difference in your personal life & relationships. How could your relationships be different?

?In a work environment, active listening skill promotes #trust#engagement, and ultimately sustainable #performance.

Isn’t that a worthy goal?

What do you think?
