Lad Os Kalde Det Noget Andet

CSR som begreb er i krise. Folk gider ikke at høre om miljøtiltag og miljøprofiler. Måske burde vi kalde det noget andet? Kim Rahbek og Sandja Brügmann var på podiet på Aalborg Universitet, hvor de foldede CSR-idéen ud. Skrevet af Eva Vestrheim, Forfatter, Copy Writer, Konsulent. Udgivet af Dansk Markedsføring.   Conscious Business er det nye sort ”over there”, og det må nødvendigvis inkorporeres i de danske forretningsmodeller, hvis vi vil overleve på et globalt marked. Basalt set handler Corporate Social Responsibility blot om enkelthed, ærlighed, transparens, ydmyghed, og at handle bevidst og ansvarligt. Hvor svært kan det være! Kim Rahbek, medstifter af Sticks’ n’ Sushi, og Sandja Brügmann, grundlægger af Refresh Agency, undrer sig over vores konforme måde at tænke… Read more »

Systems Thinking: Life-Enhancing Business Through Leade...

  Change is one of the most challenging elements of life within an organization. To sustain a change agenda moving away from behaviors and decisions that are life-destroying to becoming life-enhancing, the nuances of both corporate culture and the patterns of human behavior need to be understood. This requires systems thinking – also called visual seeing and thinking skills. I sat down with Fritjof Capra, one of the world’s most distinguished scientists and systems theorists, to discuss the implications of systems thinking for business, leadership and society. Sandja Brügmann: In Capra Course, you speak to the biggest crisis of our time – that we are not just experiencing a sustainability crisis, but a crisis of perception.

This is the process of becoming whole, authentic and conscious people and leaders. This is an introduction to shadow work and leadership.

Here’s Why The Best Leaders Focus On Personal Growth

It is our highest purpose as human beings to live with focused commitment to our inner growth. We create eudaimonic contentment (i.e., deep, sustained contentment) when we forego immediate pleasures—such as the next shiny object (materialism, workaholism, sex, drug etc). ‘Eudaimonia’ is a Greek word associated with Aristotle and often mistranslated as ‘happiness’—which has contributed to misunderstandings about what happiness is. Some experts say Aristotle meant ‘well-being’ when he wrote that humans can attain eudaimonia by fulfilling their potential(WSJ).” This article interview explores how you create a deep level of contentment and fulfillment for yourself in your business life.

The cost of perfectionism

Because you believe this lie – that you need to be perfect – you act accordingly and create a restricted life of struggle for yourself, and typically also for others. It doesn’t serve you! Perfectionism actually pushes everything that you want away from you. It is in imperfection that you will excel as a business leader and in all your relationships. When you can embrace and not only accept, but delight in your own and other’s imperfection, you will soar. And you will support others in excelling, too. The perfectionist voice in your head tells you You are not good enough You are not wise enough You don’t know enough Who are you to …… (fill in the blank with your dreams)… Read more »
