Making the other person win, will make you win

This is the question that I often ask during Executive Coaching sessions whenever a conflictual situation is being discussed.

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.

Most companies have a quote such as “People are our most appreciable assets”. This sounds great, but it is really so in practice?

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? The easy one, where you know all the turns and the places or the scary, impossible one.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.
