Looking for talent doesn't mean that you have to read a lot of curriculums, but to follow the trace it leaves: An excellent work. Because the most important thing is not what you learn, or the companies in which you have worked in. The most important thing is what you do. 

You need five things to make your work exceptional: Energy, focus, time, creativity and an total commitment to quality. 

Behind these five pillars there's just one thing: Motivation. Motivation is the difference between the world champion and the second classified. Motivation makes a runner run to the finish line when he has no more stamina left, a climber reach an impossible summit, a creator fight against himself until his work is perfect. With motivation you find time where there's no more time, motivation keeps your energy level and your focus at the highest level, and makes you see the world differently. When you are motivated you are capable of throwing away an almost finished work and starting it again until it is excellent. 

The motivation is generated by the necessity. It's clear: If someone is hungry, no doubt he will put all his mental, physical and time resources to satisfy that necessity. The necessity is the motive; the necessity shoots the motivation up. This isn´t new. In the 1930's, Abraham Maslow proposed a theory about the human needs. According to it, the people who mobilize their resources do it on account of a necessity: Eating, sex, money, belonging, acknowledgement or self-realization. 


But to find the source of Talent we have to look beyond the necessity. There´s no doubt that the physical needs subjugate the rest: Hunger, thirst, to avoid pain... but in developed economies, these needs are very often covered. Most of the people are motivated by the superior needs in the Maslow Pyramid: Money, power, belonging, freedom, acknowledgement or self-realization. And how the marketing experts and the sales people know very well, the needs can be created, changed or slanted. You just need to control one thing: the beliefs. If someone is absolute convinced about something he becomes unstoppable. 

The beliefs are the origin of everything else. 


Laut einer Studie der Europäischen Agentur für Sicherheit und Gesundheitsschutz am Arbeitsplatz, im Jahr 2016, der Stress kostet der EU jährlich 136 Milliarden Euro. 

Ihr Anteil am BIP liegt durchschnittlich in 3,2% und die Ergebnisse in der Schweiz sind die gleichen:  gemäss der Studie des Staatssekretariats für Wirtschaft SECO 2010 leiden 34,4% der Arbeitnehmer sehr häufig unter Stress. 

​Möchten Sie wissen, wie viel Stress Ihr Unternehmen kostet? 

Wir können die Rechnung schnell machen: Wenn eine Firma 10 Millionen pro Jahr produziert, die Stresskosten sind 320.000 CHF pro Jahr durch Abwesenheiten und weniger Produktivität in der Arbeitsplatz. Machen Sie die Rechnung für Ihre Firma.

​Die gute Nachricht ist, dass wir diese Kosten durch die angewandte Business Psychology senken können. 

​Das bedeutet: mehr Geld für das Unternehmen und bessere Gesundheit und Zufriedenheit für den Angestellten in seine Arbeit.
