We are Dialogos

“Many people would sooner die than think. In fact, they do.” (Bertram Russell)
I chose this quote, as I find it genuinely inspiring. For others it might be provocative. And that is a good thing, too, as I consider myself a provocateur in the truest sense of the word: “pro-voco” is Latin and means to “invoke, elicit, recall, challenge.” The word “vox” is behind it – meaning word, voice, language and appeal.
So if I use my voice for (pro) something in particular, it is not autotelic, but an invitation to my clients to jointly develop something new, something meaningful, which contributes to what is “good, right and beautiful” in the company.
I have always been curious about how we reach judgements, conclusions and decisions – and what influences us in this process so significantly, if not even beyond measure, without us even noticing. In the “TSOT – THE SCHOOL OF THINKING”, which I founded, we deal with precisely these phenomena and pursue questions we never asked ourselves before. Always based on the premise that thinking is only possible with language and that it is our language that shapes our thinking.

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Viktor E. Frankl
This quote by Viktor E. Frankl has guided me through life. It expresses my attitude towards life. And also towards work.
To me it is about making deliberate decisions and acting in the here and now. It is about personal accountability, a positive attitude and the certainty that you can find meaning in every situation. I have the choice to seize opportunities and to make something out of anything that comes your way.
My work with people is based on my conviction that every person is capable of continuous development, learning and taking accountability of guiding one’s life.
With this in mind, I consult, train and coach individuals, groups and teams and contribute to the development of the entire organization.

Meaning and aesthetics
To us, meaning (logos) represents bringing to fruition what is valuable and important here and now. Viktor E. Frankl’s existential analysis forms the foundation.
Aesthetics explores the question how we can perceive with all our senses and thereby tap into our sphere of influence.
Courage and openness
Courage is individual. Courage manifests itself when we successfully leave our comfort zone. We need this courage to shape our future proactively.
Discovering, trying out, thinking things through, exchanging, dealing with contradictions. This is openness. It is a guarantee for development and change.
Individuality and diversity
Each person is unique. With this attitude, we approach the topics we work on and implement with our customers.
Individuality creates diversity. It is the key to dealing with complexity. The more diversity, the higher is our probability of survival. This also applies to organizations.
Freedom and responsibility
No freedom without responsibility.
Assuming responsibility for oneself and one’s actions, means gaining freedom over one’s sphere of influence. This requires autonomous, self-reliant people with an affinity for networking.
WE SHOULD GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER
