The power of trust,

safety and openness


Contact us

Powerful connections form the heart of an organization. Employees connect with their work, with their leaders, colleagues, team members, and with the prevailing corporate culture.

To create these connections optimally, self-awareness, talent orientation, and open communication are indispensable. In addition, trust and a sense of safety are crucial.

Leaders play a key role in facilitating these connections. They determine that building strong relationships, creating a safe environment, and promoting team cohesion are central.

Connection grows through the otherness of the other: the other is different from me, and precisely what I do not understand about the other makes me curious about him or her. The other, with all their otherness, simultaneously confronts us with our own vulnerability. From this vulnerability, we can truly connect.

Everyone has their own goals, which can vary greatly depending on talents, opportunities, and capabilities. But the essence of happiness lies in connection. Genuine attention in connection, in the sense of being caring and considerate, is the essence of human culture. A society that places too much emphasis on individual success, on the development of boundless individuality, loses its humanity.
