Making the other person win, will make you win

How can you make the other person win?
This is the question that I often ask during Executive Coaching sessions whenever a conflictual situation is being discussed.
Usually, the answer goes, “But I don’t want them to win; I want to win!”.
That’s called a zero-sum win; for one person to win, the other must lose.
In a world where mobbing, abuses, and prejudice seem to be the norm, it is not only idealistic to let other people win, but it makes complete sense in terms of business values.
Are you ready to see long-term collaborations and have the satisfaction of building trusting and mutually beneficial relationships by letting the other person win?

5 steps to increase the innovation in your company

Would you like to see your teams being 25% more engaged, 47% more creative, 41% more loyal (feel that they belong), 43% more likely to stay. Learn how to implement a diversity & inclusion approach in your team?
The goal of diversity & inclusion should not be just about KPIs or hitting the correct balance of diverse profiles in your boards. We have seen that this does not create diversity, even less inclusion and even less innovation. Therefore, it should be about creating a company culture conducive to authentic, open and critical dialogue, starting at the board level and impacting the entire company.

What an MBA has taught me

I thought that practical experience is more valuable than studies. I still believe that. However, at about 45 years old, I reached a plateau in my career. Dealing increasingly with financial, marketing, risk, and legal specialist, I wanted to have a better understanding of all these areas. At the same time, my thought led me to think what if I could a Director or General Manager. What about being even a CEO, leading a company, even my own. I took one of the best decisions in my life and joined an MBA program. This what it has taught me.

5 benefits of investing in your people

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, in January 2019, the President of Costa Rica, shared that his country has “managed to protect its environment while also investing in its people”.
When I think about the challenges that we all face, countries and companies alike, I am not sure the environmental issues, as important as they are, make it to our top 3 list. when investing in people, your organisation will be able to experience more productivity by reducing conflict, generating more engagement, creating more imitative and innovation as well as attracting top talents.

5 people you need on your team to climb a high mountain

Next to Geneva in Switzerland, there are two mountains, the Salève and the Mont-Blanc.
The Salève is a cosy mountain. You can drive to the top of it by car. This is a usual walk for locals. As it is so close to the city that it almost gives the impression that you can touch it.However, it might be relatively boring; after a while it is not a challenge anymore.
On the other hand, the Mont-Blanc is further away, scary and pretty much impossible to climb without extensive training and the help of a guide. But just imagine the view up there. There are reasons why it is called “the roof of Europe”, as it is the highest mountain of the “old continent”.
Which mountain are you considering climbing? This is an important question for your life, as what you will able to achieve depends on the mountain you are considering climbing, and of course, I don’t mean a mountain literally, I mean the goals of your life.
