Rediscover your passion

“This lecture is for you who need a kick in the pants so that you will take responsibility for your own supplementary training and create your own success.”

Are you ready to sack your inner employee and get out of your comfort zone? I guarantee that you will be ready to move on after this lecture! This talk is perfect for “kick-butt kickoff” meetings.

Where did the entrepreneurial spirit and passion go?
In to-days world we have become salaried employees who expect that supplementary training is paid by the employer. Over time, we have observed that a lot of people mainly think about what job they can handle, how much they earn, and which benefits they can get. Not thinking at all of how full filling their job is or will be in the future. That means people who are bored with their job potentially spend between 50 and 70 percent of their awake hours on something that they don’t feel engaged in! This mentality is not something that we can live on in the future. 2020 is a major wake up call for many of us. If you can’t get a job how can you design one? There is always a solution.

Sack your inner employee and track down your entrepreneurial spirit! Not everybody wants to be an entrepreneur in the true sense of the word, but everybody should feel the desire to acquire the mentality that characterizes an entrepreneur. The passion for your own development and for life—the so-called shining eyes—is what we need in the future. It is this passion that is the ticket to success!

“Even a hero needs the backing of the manager.”

Is it your responsibility alone? No! 
Your employer has a co-responsibility. Your company also needs to rediscover the passion and entrepreneurial spirit, but most importantly, it must be able to communicate its value to society. Companies that don’t know how to communicate their visions clearly to their employees either kill the passion of their employees or prevent the passion from being created.

The company of the future already exists. The number of generations working in the same workplace has increased significantly over the last 30 years, and this development requires a completely different kind of leadership than what we have been used to. Otherwise, the company risks losing its best employees because they don’t feel inspired. The younger generations do not have the time or desire to wait for the development and values to come to them. They want to be a part of creating it!

This lecture focuses on how you as an individual and team can turn over a new leaf and start realizing the value of investing in yourself rather than just demanding that others invest in you.

The lecture also addresses companies that want to rediscover the entrepreneurial spirit and the passion that surely existed when the company was founded. Not only to avoid complacency and laziness but also to give the employees a real opportunity to engage themselves in their work and personal development. In short, create the foundation for innovation.
