Recoding Habits

Posted by jjerlich on 5. December 2016

Speaker Update and Event Tip for people in Basel

mahima_jutta

Feeling strong: Jutta & Mahima

A quite daunting task – recoding habits you want to get rid of.

I read lots of different articles about changing and forming new habits. The science of how our brain works helps to understand this topic.

One of the rules stated is that you need at least 21 days of doing something to form a new habit that overwrites the old one.

Well, it is a very long time to get over 21 days. If you have ever tried to do this, you will know how hard it is.

Taking up this topic is #Fun.Basel speaker Mahima. She is in Villa Crescenda tomorrow night on Dec 6, 2016 on her late night special from 20:00 to 22:00 speaking about “Recoding Negative Habits”.

JOIN US – with this link you will get one of the last open seats.

Looking forward to meet Mahima tomorrow – being around her always brings light and answers question, even when I did not consciously have any.

It is a coincidence to write this on a 5th of Dec = KRAMPUS   with the event coming up on 6th of Dec = NICHOLAS.

An Austro-Bavarian Alpine tradition: Krampus punishes children who have misbehaved on the 5th of December and Saint Nicholas rewards the well-behaved with gifts on the 6th of December.

Inspirational regards

Jutta

FUN.Basel Vol III @Fluxdock

Posted by jjerlich on 29. August 2016

FUN Basel eingeladen im Fluxdock // FUN Basel invited to Fluxdock

AFun_basel at Fluxdockfter the first Fuckup Night in Basel we were approached by Elias Schäfer, CEO and Member of the Board at FLUXDOCK AG, who read the article about it in Basler Zeitung. He invited us to bring the Fuckup Nights Basel to Fluxdock.

What is Fluxdock?

It is a place where interdisciplinary teams can collaborate, realize concrete ideas using technology and the Fluxdock network to multiply the intended impact.

The crucial objective is to collaborate across company borders, break down barriers and bring ideas with high level of innovation to project maturity within the short time frame of only one or two weeks.

– – –    The Innovation Department for your company    – – –

A great offer and a real match:

My Creativity Engineering program at the Vienna University of Technology trains engineers to develop their creative confidence. It offers a collaboration space and simulation environment to present their ideas, create or find a team collaborating across disciplines to grow their ideas into products and services.

The Challenge

Being able to speak about errors and mistakes – that happen when new things are being created – openly is key. “Fail fast, fail often, learn quickly” is certainly a useful approach that speeds up creation and development.

Join us for the

FB Sept

We are looking forward to welcome our speakers

  • Asitta Tabatabai – Inspiring Coach, Trainer and Mediator
  • Daniel Jordi – Creator of The ChangeMakers Hub & LinkedREvolution
  • Kurt Schmid – Leading Communication Professional, founder of persuasion.ch

Stay tuned for more information on Facebook and/or Twitter.

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

Would you ever …

Posted by jjerlich on 14. July 2016

Guest Author: Liz McCreary

… stand in front of an audience and speak about your biggest professional blunders for seven minutes?

Me neither! Lucky for us, fearless professionals Marne Platt, Alexander Ramseier, and Martin Daubney agreed to confide in us the unique challenges they faced on their journeys to success, much to our enjoyment at Basel’s second FuckUp Night event that took place on July 7th 2016.

DSC_0237-kl

Whereas a quick glance at anyone’s LinkedIn account will show a succession of shining feats and accomplishments, the beauty of FuckUp Nights lies in the frank discussion of mishaps and blunders that, until now, were taboo to openly discuss for fear of discrediting one’s professional talents and skills.

Thanks to the courage of individuals such as our guests speakers, FUN.Basel allows us the opportunity to erase the taboo of admitting imperfections and to simultaneously share how missteps are valuable learning experiences that contribute to one’s success.

I had the pleasure of chatting with the first speaker, New York native MARNE PLATT, before the event began, and I listened in awe as she casually mentioned her sudden career change from the veterinary field to the business sector, the myriad countries she has worked in, and the fact that she is currently promoting her book. While our light-hearted chat broached several topics, her speech centered on two conflicting yet fundamental internal voices that guided her during her corporate career: the “Superwoman” and the “Nemesis”. She shared with us the consequences of only listening to one of those voices and the importance of balancing the attention we give each one.

In vein with the night’s themes of encouragement and guidance, she has written and published her book Living Singlish: Your Life, Your Way in which she “walks young women through the process of self-discovery and empowerment she went through on her own journey”. She is also the founder of Fundamental Capabilities, an organization that offers workshops and mentoring, using the phrase “Straight Talk for Women” as its header.

If you met ALEXANDER RAMSEIER at a party and asked him about his professional background, you’d be equally impressed. His LinkedIn profile boasts his English, Portuguese, German and French skills, complementing a varied professional background in Accounting, IT and Sales. However, during Alexander’s speech at FUN.Basel, we were privy to the struggles and setbacks he experienced “behind the scenes” so to speak, and how those challenges were in fact valuable learning experiences that only made him stronger.

Above all, he emphasized how those missteps were necessary to his current success: “nothing was ever really a failure; it was trial and error.” His advice to us was to not fear failure as failure is inevitable, even after success, but rather to “fail fast, fail often, learn quickly.” Martin set out to start his own business and is now the CEO and founder of Futurebuilt since 2014, whose goals include “advising clients on strategic business development, alliance management, service practice and process optimization”.

Upon reading the book Strength Finder, our third speaker MARTIN DAUBNEY discovered communication was his strength, and so he set upon turning communications into a career in the corporate world. Despite the stability of a managerial position at a billion-dollar corporation, Martin sensed he wasn’t happy with the direction his professional life was going, and he set upon forging a new path using his communications strengths and experience to start his own company and become partner at another.

The path, however, wasn’t without its own challenges and surprises, but Martin not once considered going back in the face of adversity. Now, he is co-founder of Inspire Coaching GmbH, a coaching company that also offers workshops as well as NLP training, and is senior partner at CommsQuest, an organization that provides diverse services such as strategy development and narrative creation, among others. When an attendee asked him what helped him through the tough times, he answered that he simply took a deep breath and told himself, “It will be okay”.

Take-aways from last Thursday’s Fuck Up Night in Basel:

  • Listen to your inner motivator as well as your inner critique
  • Fail fast, fail often, learn quickly
  • Focus, focus, focus

In a world where putting your best face forward is king, there’s nothing like the rare transparency of successful professionals openly sharing the less glamourous side of success.

PWG-Basel would like to thank the speakers for sharing their stories and their time with us, and most importantly for having the courage to be vulnerable.

We salute you!

The New School of Business Rules

Posted by jjerlich on 19. June 2016

Number 1 Skill business owners and entrepreneurs needed to master right now in this chaotic economy

Times are tough … you’re probably finding it’s costing you more now than ever to win a new client, your overheads are likely going up and up, budgets are being cut left, right and center, consumer sentiment is down and bankruptcies and financial stress are on the rise.

networking

If you asked me what I thought was the Number 1 skill business owners and entrepreneurs needed to master right now in this chaotic economy, where turbulence and strife just seems to go on and on … I could give you a very long answer or a quick recommendation as follows.

When I met Kane from the Industry Rockstar® team the first time, I was not sure at all … I thought that I would first listen to what his program is about.

It was a free 2 hour workshop in Basel that got me started … the experience was just unforgettable and … things have changed since then.

Next week this same door opens again in Geneva, Lausanne and Zurich – in your city between June 21st to 27th with the opportunity to join the August 26th-28th Start At The Top 3 Day weekend.

Someone who shares their business growth secrets, experiences and network has a worth beyond millions of dollars. 
I strongly recommend you to discover this LIVE yourself

A WARNING
Sometimes people don’t value what they get for FREE. I chose to pay attention. The skills they teach will definitely complement what you have and get you what you need to master your business …

Hope to meet you – in Basel or later on in Zurich – in person …

Faule Bewegungen

Posted by juttajerlich on 29. February 2016

Gibt es so etwas wie faule Bewegungen überhaupt?

Jeder kennt Stress in seinen unterschiedlichsten Erscheinungsformen. Eine Googlesuche nach dem Wort Stress ergibt ungefähr 543.000.000 Resultate in 0,45 Sekunden. Erschlagen! Im Wahrsten Sinne des Wortes.

Mein Ziel, meine Fähigkeit, mit Stress umzugehen, zu verbessern, bewog mich zum Besuch der ShenDao Praxis von Nicole Mühlemann in Riehen, Basel. Sie wurde mir von einem sehr guten Freund und Kollegen aus der IT Welt empfohlen. Dafür möchte ich mich hier an dieser Stelle auch gleich gebührend bei Max bedanken.

Ich glaube an die Fähigkeit des Körpers, Krankheiten und Beschwerden zu bekämpfen. Es ist immer wieder ein Gewinn, sich mit anderen Menschen zu unterhalten, die diese Selbstheilkraft sehen und noch mehr, einem helfen können, diese Kraft durch Ernährung und Lebensstil zu stärken.

Von Nicole habe ich den Begriff “Faule Bewegungen” zum ersten Mal gehört. Es geht um kleine, feine und langsame, bewußte Bewegungen eines ganz bestimmten Körperteiles oder sogar nur bestimmte Muskeln. An der Einbindung in meinem Alltag arbeite ich noch 🙂

Holen Sie sich Ihre Bewegungsanleitungen!

The process never ends until we die.
And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”

Why is communication the key?

Posted by juttajerlich on 9. March 2012

Socialnetworkor THE FORCE OF CONNECTION

Everyone has different thinking styles, experiences and perspectives based on their individual background, upbringing and education. The only way to get a 360 degree view of issues in an organization is to consider the opinion and ideas of others. This is especially true when it comes to seeing opportunities and threats as well as when dealing with complex issues.

To be able to share opinions and ideas a person needs to communicate. He or she also has to take into account that the messages sent out need to be received and understood in the intended way.

Communication is a two-way street, which is what is often forgotten. There are so many ways that things can go wrong in a communication that it is actually surprising when people really understand each other. This is usually the case when a relationship was built over a long period of time and is based on trust and respect for each other.

When do we like to share our opinions and ideas?
With who do we like to share our opinions and ideas?

With people we feel connected. With people we trust.
When we feel that our opinions and ideas are valued and respected.

This is not surprising and I am sure that you know what I am talking about and can tell me an example out of your personal life confirming this.

So why is it so hard to accept that this is how the climate and work environment in our companies should be? Simple fact, maybe too simple, to make it important on the decision makers agenda. Luckily more and more companies leaders do make it a top priority on their agenda.

Scientific research showed that employees who feel more engaged and connected are 22% more productive. Form an organizational point of view this means that feeling connected fosters relationships and opens up the knowledge flow.

-> Greater knowledge flow is essential for leaders to be better informed to be able to make optimal decisions.
-> Greater knowledge flow fuels the creation of ideas that stimulates innovation.

Of course, the fact is that people need to be good at what they do.

This leads us to a (very simple) formula:
Task Excellence + Relationship Excellence = Sustainable Superior Performance

Now what do you mean with Relationship Excellence?

Relationships are about connecting with people, sharing and communication on the basis of respect. A basic human need. The need to belong.

What does this mean translated into the world of an organization?
How do we feel connected within a company?

I believe that it can best be described through these 3 elements:

VISION – VALUE – VOICE

VISION exists when everyone is motivated by the mission, united by shared values and proud for what the company stands for.

VALUE exists when everyone understands the needs of people, appreciates their unique contributions and helps them achieve their potential.

VOICE is when everyone in an organization seeks the ideas of others, shares ideas honestly and safeguards relational connections.

I believe that one of the fastest and most powerful levers to work with and use those three elements is to install an ongoing Learning and Development process, it could also be an innovation management process – personal learning, learning with and from others is in the center.

It equips a task force with the best abilities to deal with the pace of change, its direction and often unpredictability. As never before organizations depend on the capability and capacity of its employees to be agile and responsive to trends in the market.

Looking forward to your feedback – connect – contact – lets work together …

In search for ideas and talented people

Posted by juttajerlich on 1. January 2011

SharingCompanies and organizations need to develop their business and maintain their position on the market. More than ever companies will require new ideas and inspirations from talented people with core human values. The search for this essential resource is more than important and should be giving the right value and weight in organizational processes.

Only few companies understand this.

Here is one example:
Lyn Heward from Cirque Du Soleil is bringing it to the point.

KEY HUMAN VALUES
– Wanting to be a member of a team
– Courage to take risk
– Generosity to share creative ideas
