#justgiveitatry, is what we always say. Try things out, see what goes well, learn from mistakes, and consistently expand upon things that were successful. If you will, agile work the way we practice it is a sequence of many small pilot projects that naturally fit into the day-to-day workflow. In order to implement changes in large companies that fundamentally change the way hundreds, thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of employees work, pilot projects are a suitable and effective instrument. They make it possible to test new tools and processes on a manageable scale with little risk and to subsequently assess whether it is worthwhile to introduce them broadly. Read more

Purpose is considered one of the cornerstones of New Work. In “Reinventing Organisations” Frederic Laloux speaks of “Evolutionary Purpose”, that companies of a new type are trying out. At first glance, this may sound a bit esoteric, but it touches upon an essential survival strategy for organizations in a world in which requirements and needs are constantly changing. Because if companies keep returning to their core values, to what drives them, and to WHY they exist, they can always align their actions with these principles, regardless of the external influences they face.

The discussion about home office is never just about working remotely. The question of how organizations will work after the pandemic has far-reaching consequences – not only for the economy as a whole, but also in terms of a new work-life reality for hundreds of thousands of employees. Read more

As we all know, normality is a question of perspective. ‘That’s not normal!’ some people might say. Others might ask ‘What is normal?’. And the next group will claim ‘Normal is boring’. And: Who wants to be boring? Don’t we all want to be a little bit different? And don’t we have to be a little different in order to be innovative? But if everyone is different, then what is normal? Does the category “normal” still work in the VUCA world, where things are changing at a rapid pace?
If you’re looking for an easy answer to the question “What is the New Normal”, you will be disappointed. Instead we need to uncover the core values of the organization that we are working for and, from there, pave new paths for collaboration together. The result? – Unknown. And that’s a good thing.

Nowadays, being in therapy is no longer something to be ashamed of. More and more people openly acknowledge that there are things that they cannot manage on their own. Some might even say it is “en-vogue” to go to therapy. My house, my car, my therapist, and so on. Most likely every development brings its exaggeration with it.
And yet: Perhaps we need some kind of large-scale therapy – in companies! Perhaps a broadly applied cognitive behavioural therapy will finally bring about the much-needed breakthrough in thinking. Maybe only the direct confrontation with the knots in our own heads, which can’t be untied with home remedies, such as the occasional workshop or the diligent consumption of the Tandemploy blog, will help.

Many people have experienced the past weeks and months since the beginning of the Corona crisis as an emotional rollercoaster ride. Uncertainty, anger, gratitude, feeling overwhelmed, a spirit of optimism – living and working under completely new circumstances have made the different facets of human emotions visible not only in the personal realm but also between colleagues and superiors. Therefore, leadership in times of Corona requires allowing much more space for feelings. But how much feeling is good in a work context? How much of yourself do you take with you to work? How vulnerable do you want to appear? Should it be ok to show unfiltered feelings at all times? Or only the good ones? And then what to do with the less pleasant ones? Are emotional people possibly even better leaders?
