Six principles for my keynotes
Six principles are central to my work and they articulate what I stand for and strive for.
You’ll find them in my keynotes, master classes, workshops, lectures, books and other publications.
1. The honest story
2. Cure against the delusion of the day
We are not in a health crisis or economic depression, but in a transformation to the next stage of our civilization. And there is no quick fix to the immense problems we have created for ourselves. I tell the honest and complete story. Based on facts. What are our limiting beliefs and what are the vital solutions for tomorrow’s world?
My inspirements are never about what is happening today but about what is happening every day. I rarely point out sensational trends, but rather the fundamental developments in our society and business. Tomorrow’s weather is irrelevant, if it is to be about the climate. In this way I try to give a deeper and more honest insight into how the world works. Today and possibly in the future.
3. Independent but not neutral
4. Focused on vital solutions
I am independent, but not neutral, nor unbiased. This does not mean that I am member of any political party or movement or adhere to only one ideology. I am transparent about my views and attach great importance to facts. But I give these meaning by interpreting them. Therefore, I am open about my worldviews and moral convictions. When the facts change, my opinions change with them.
I oppose stereotypes, prejudice and fear-mongering. I believe that a good dose of skepticism and realism opens up a view of the world and ourselves. My inspirations are sometimes confrontational, but certainly not intended to shock. I don’t just look at the problems, but above all at the vital solutions for the world of tomorrow. I am for positive change and actively contribute to it myself.
5. Impact over applause
6. No right, but a point
A positive and especially lasting impact is more important than high ratings and applause. I don’t tell people what they want to hear, but what they should know. That’s why I always share my content, as a form of aftercare. This way I also get more feedback, my inspirations become more intense and the impact bigger.
I believe in transparency and continuous self-improvement. If I am wrong, I admit it and correct it. I make an effort every day to improve myself, my vision and contributions to a better world. In desire for a better world and in radical interdependence. Finally, I find it more important to have a point than to be right.
