TALKS

Apart from offering the contents of our workshops as concise talks, we can provide information on the following topics:

The brain is not your friend. How to avoid systematic mistakes in decision making

Our brain is adapted to a life in stone age. In these times, it has developed rules of thumb that tend to fail in the complexities we live in now. Due to this, systematic errors arise in planning, decision making and team work. – This talk introduces the mechanisms of these cognitive biases and gives practical advice to handle them at the work.

Smart Work. How managing your energies enables fulfilling productivity

The new economy questions our way of working. Often, we yield to the demands for more speed, technology and flexibility and work the old way, just harder. – This talks shows that psychology as well as the practice of successful companies point in a different direction: We are, especially in the long run, more productive when we respect our human strengths, needs and limitations.

Proactive Thinking. How to gain more initiative and foster new ideas

More than ever before, we are confronted with change. Accepting it and pushing it forward feels often like a burden. Moreover, there is a surprising contradiction between the constant calls for change and the difficulties to foster it. – This talk reveals the causes for these difficulties and gives practical advice on how to handle uncertainty and push for new ideas.

How to be creative. Surprising ways of coming up with new ideas

We are supposed to be creative – more often and in more fields than ever before. The digital turn, the attention economy and partly our own well-being – everything calls for improvisation and creativity. – This talk provides insights, methods and hacks to think around the corner and come up with new solutions.

Why multitasking harms our productivity and brains – and how to work in a better way

It should be common knowledge by now that multitasking is not working. But many of us still yield to our dynamic (or just ill-organized) environment and go on juggling tasks, some even proudly so. – This talk explains why multitasking leads to stress, inefficiency and lower quality of work and provides better ways of working.
