THE FAMILIAR FLUCTUATES! – THE ENCOURAGERS ALSO NEED ENCOURAGEMENT.

20. July 2021

The Corona era has shifted contexts and frames of reference. What is still reliable? We experienced a lot of supposedly surreal things as real in these months. Not infrequently, we felt drawn into a whirlpool of unreal-irrational events, guiltless, quasi “Kafkaesque” (Kafka, The Trial), caught up in processes whose inner logic we no longer understand.

We have arrived at a time of entirely new uncertainties. Nature is doing its thing. So do the individual states. Even a simple system comparison between China and Germany in dealing with Covid is becoming a political issue.

Resilience of our processes and structures becomes relevant for survival in such times of uncertainty. We are faced with two challenges. On the one hand, we have to shape our inner, very personal way of dealing with critical change, with shifted contexts, with old versus new certainties, reference points and values. On the other hand, as entrepreneurs, managers and advisors, we are responsible for providing directional impulses and encouragement for the survival and growth of our organisations and networks in times of crisis.

How do I live up to this responsibility without becoming “courageless”? Do I need to re-measure, at least partially? Or do I need a radical new beginning and what might it look like for me?

So let’s go boldly and courageously onto the rocking boat and set sail into rough seas. How does that work?
