Understanding Creativity

Posted by jjerlich on 31. March 2017

is a first step.

Understanding your own aptitude for creative thinking is the best first step you can take. Knowing and enjoying your own creativity and the blocks that keep your creativity from flowing is essential to a happy life.

Jutta Jerlich Guest Author Understanding Creativity

That is why I wrote a couple of sections as a guest author of the new book

Understanding Creativity

I have been collaborating with the main two authors Dr. Daniel Collado-Ruiz and Dr. Hesamedin Ostad-Ahmad-Ghorabi for many years now and want to thank them for including my thoughts and expertise.

The topics I burn for

  • Communication Culture
  • Conflicts Management
  • Learning from failures

I highly recommend you to read this book, it is not only explaining creativity in a simple way but also gives a lot of practical examples and tipps on why a specific method might work in your case and others not.

Let me know if you do so.
I am always connecting with my readers and curious about feedback.

Inspirational regards

Jutta

Simple solutions

Posted by jjerlich on 2. November 2016

wp_20160720_009When you find yourself in a difficult situation or facing a complex problem, others always find it simple and easy to solve. You get suggestions on how to solve the problem right away.

Do you know that feeling? I do.

Sometimes we even know the solution when we actually had time to think about it. It is not so easy though to apply your inner wisdom. It needs time and space to stay in touch with your inner voice and take decisions accordingly. A third person to sort out the conversations between you and yourself makes a huge difference.

I recently met Martin & Stefan who have the gift to help people doing just that: Sorting out what they already know, face the unknowns and manifest your inner powers through decisions and actions. Sounds too fluffy?

  • Martin is a master in guiding people to allow themselves to surface the knowledge you already have to create the life you want.
  • Stefan is the left side of the brain and a capacity in putting processes in place to grow your business, ideas and skills.

I convinced them to share their methods and exercises beyond their normal 1:1 setting. They are holding a very first 1-Day workshop in Basel on 12.11.2016.

They gave me the gift of 15 special workshop tickets to forward to my personal network which I am happy to offer you – just contact me.

If the date does not fit into your schedule or you are not in Basel but you still would like to know more about their activities, please leave them your email on their website and you will receive updates on their upcoming programs in different cities and online.

Happy to see you next Saturday or connect with you online.

Inspirational regards

Jutta

It is my time

Posted by juttajerlich on 29. September 2016

Female Entrepreneurship is on the rise, companies with women leaders do better and startups created by women are more successful.

When will there be a better time?

I decided to make 2016 my year
√ I took time out to get my creativity back
√ stopped working on the weekends,
√ searched for mentors to help me grow my impact and independence in doing so

iswear2.

I met Martin & Stefan in a workshop that was as much fun as serious …  committing to our own goals 🙂

Working with them helped me to untangle the complexity in my thoughts and start doing rather than thinking. Proven tools and personal support for keeping yourself on track are doing the trick.

Thrilled to hear that they are now opening up:
they designed a free experiential seminar “Boost Your Business: Unleash Your Entrepreneurial Potential”
in Basel upcoming on 14th of October.

Make it your time now

RESERVE YOUR SEAT

Leverage your impact

Hebel

See you there …

Why the force will be with women entrepreneurs

It happens … to all of us

Posted by Stefan@tapabundance.com on 20. September 2016

Errors, defeat, mistakes or failure … whatever word we use for something that has not worked out the way we wanted it to.

What it could hold for us?

Everything that happens will and does have a reason for happening. It sounds a little bit like a cliché however it’s a truth.

The reason can be anything, and maybe it takes a lot of time to be revealed to you. If you start to understand this first important point, you can start to look for the reason in failure and defeat, which you will encounter on your journey.

The next important aspect is this: Failure and Defeat will happen, to all of us. There is nobody excluded from it and nobody will ever be excluded.

stefan_logarWhat is the difference between these two?

Defeat is much more permanent than failure. Defeat is the complete loss of something. If you encounter defeat it can mean that you have to start all over again. It could mean, that you have to rethink a plan completely or it could mean that you would even have to change the products or services you’re offering.

If you encounter defeat, it always will be accompanied by an opportunity. Defeat holds many important lessons for you to learn.

  • It will show you clearly that you were not ready to start in a broad sense.
  • It shows you that you need to gather and apply more new and specialized information and concepts.
  • It shows you also that you have to increase the amount of time that you spend on your journey and be more mindful where you actually spend it on.

Defeat holds a key for you. This key is called translated success. If you overcome defeat, learn from it and adjust to the outcome, it holds an equal amount of success removing the defeat in total.

Failure is something that occurs around us every single day and hides in every action we take.  It comes in many disguises and shows in faces everywhere you look if your mind is programmed to see it.

Not sticking to your own goals and timetables could lead to failure. Also not managing to write the blog you wanted is a failure. As not selling the amounts you hoped for is a failure. And all failures, as well as defeats, come along for a reason.

The sense behind it is, that you start to understand that failure teaches you the responsibility you have for your actions.

If you do start to blame others or things for the failure, you clearly are missing the point that failure is trying to teach you.

It also holds another important lesson for you.  It shows you which roads not to take and the decisions not to make.

“Keep looking for the lessons in failure and defeat. As they will occur and have to occur to help you arise into the personality of a successful entrepreneur that you need to become, to reach your desired lifestyle.”

From a match to the lantern

Posted by juttajerlich on 30. August 2016

Where did the quest take you?

Here is how the story started:
It started with a match …
It started with a match … Part II

Stunned at my success at truing a match into 59 francs I called in to what would be my last transaction. I was running out of time. It was another gift shop with lost of items that looked more expensive than they were. The assistant and I hated and started to select what might be a good trade.

We both know that the retail price is no where near the acquisition price so I thought I was on to a good thing, that is until the owner came back in. At first she, the owner, was somewhat shocked at my proposition but rapport is a beautiful thing.

Remember I am in Zurich and to start with this lady wouldn’t open up in English. with a bit of banter, and pointing out that I am only doing what one of her posters on the wall was saying …

”If you don’t ask for what you want, you won’t get it”,

we became friend in trading. The big challenge here, for me, was she didn’t rate the price tag on the fake lavender. She told me in fact that the quaintly was awful (not her word obviously) and not worth anything other. That said I now believe this to have been a savvy negotiating tactic as I walked out of this shop with a proper gift.

A beach style lantern complete with candle and a price tag of 94 francs.

From a single valueless match to a lantern priced at 94 franc in just over an hour.

So, what can I learn from this?

  • in any negotiation make sure you are talking to the budget holder
  • in any negotiation the other person is always negotiating too
  • build rapport and keep it building politeness and humour go a long way
  • value and price are not always related

A dangerous journey

Posted by juttajerlich on 15. July 2016

… that could kill the racist in all of us …

DNA wow

Every time I watch this video that came my way through my social media channels – I get chills. For some reason I have to watch it again and again.

I decided that I want to share this video with my course group from the

INNES Summer School
Intercultural Competence and Effective Professional Communication in Globalized Societies

and we watched this video together on the day we spoke about conflicts, their cause and how to manage them.

  • We think that everyone should watch this … .
  • We fully agree with the girl saying that this should be compulsory for everyone – we all want to do this DNA test.
  • Lets share this with everyone we know and change our way to look at the world.

Thanks to the creators of this initiative – join the movement!

HOW?

We only have one world, but it’s divided. We tend to think that there are more things dividing us than uniting us – Lets open our world

A dangerous journey that could kill the racist in us

INNES Summer School 2016

Posted by juttajerlich on 13. July 2016

… started on 11.7.2016 in Vienna.

welcome dinnerI started the journey into Intercultural Competence and Effective Professional Communication in Globalized Societies with a group of students from Morocco, Singapore, Thailand, Hungary and Nepal.

We are speaking about communication, culture and how communication changes when using of technology. Experimenting with online collaboration and meeting tools will be part of our agenda. I am also looking forward to a fruitful discussion with invited experts introducing themselves and their experiences in our context.

After this 2 weeks of working together, we will not only have found new friends from different background, but opened the door into how effective communication in our personal and professional lives looks like for a personal perspective.
