It all started with the word, the language, the understanding and the essential question: how does communication actually work? These were my focal points within my studies of linguistics.
Later on I turned towards studying programming language as well as information technology. In my long term function as a head of a department in an international major corporation, I had ample opportunities, to keep asking this question over and over again. As time went by, the firm belief had arisen, that whoever ignores motivation and the cultural context of his fellow human beings, shall never be able to fully understand them, and by the same token maybe not even himself.
Knowing oneself, being conscious of precisely set bars and one's own personal worth, are key requirements, to nurture people, put teams together and lead them to success. Or alternatively inspire confidence in their own force and for their future.
Full of curiousity, open-minded, very much convinced about what I am doing and how I go about it, for sure the approach will be all-embracing. Intercultural cooperation is a major concern and I am at present facing different kinds of team plays, as well as the program "Work 4.0".
I would like to share my source of secrets.
