With her, I talk about how people show up at work, how they react to threats and how they can gently be influenced to do things that are good for them and the world. We continue to debate whether we as human beings have a free will and the need for connectedness in virtual teams.
How can we use networking technologies to our best? What are new cultural practices we need to develop in order to build strong and lasting networks? Mind you, the majority of people started to read only after the printing press was invented and this changed the course of the world. How can we believe that under this fast development of technologies we can just continue without adopting new skills, mindsets and heartsets? This podcast proposes four essential cultural practices that we need to grow.

Peter Gardiner-Harding followed his passion and started to work as a professional actor in his thirties.

Holger and Peter perform a simulation, and they end this episode by some careful reflections on God.
Kelly Okamura has been a change agent in the fashion industry for 30 years, and she is a systems thinker. In this episode, we first talk about a dark chapter of Canadian history and then move to an analysis of change drivers which impacted the global fashion industry in the last two decades. My guest reflects on the slow but steady pace of change before we move into the issue of ethical consumer choices. I am tested to the bones!
Troy Yorke is a Renaissance man. And as such, he bridges disciplines and art forms, mixes them and produces something new. In this episode, we talk about his extraordinary life - from the Arctic Circle via the concert halls of New York and the film studios of Hollywood to a coaching institute in Paris and beyond. We talk at length about Troy's philosophy in coaching and the different levels that a coachee can access. from story to game, from dream to source. This episode is an attempt to reach the source.
How to listen to connect? In this episode, Ute Franzen-Waschke and I explore together what happens in the brain when we are turning to another person.

In another part of this episode we discuss the issue of transparency - what do leaders need to observe it they want to form effective teams?
When do you have the chance to talk to a polymath? This episode with Phoebe Tickell covers so many different subjects: What is the meaning of inner space in which we find peace? Does the inner space exist at all and if so, how do we cultivate it? How is the outer space in which we work and live changing and how does it integrate with virtual space? Are Decentralised Autonomous Organisations replacing the traditional brick and mortar companies? And what is the BLACK MATTER, the "thing" between the three spaces? Is it what we need to address if we want to change organisations and the world - but we don't so so, maybe because we don't have yet a language for it?
