It’s time to pursue your company’s dreams… Because if not now, then when?

24 May 2020 | 2 min read


The crisis is the opportunity for many companies to do things they didn’t do before… … pushed by necessity, suddenly things that always seemed impossible are happening step by step everywhere… all sorts of changes… Some of them are painful, some hopeful, some are just neutral and have to be done.

But… What if you used this « extra-ordinary » time to consciously, deliberately, bravely, authentically lead the deep change that you have always dreamed of? For you, for your team, for your organisation and your business.

As if it was the once in a lifetime opportunity to finally have real, caring, purposeful and daring conversations with your teams about an ideal future.. The right time to talk, envision and live the kind of business and culture you always wanted to have? To take the chance to start your journey towards a „time after“, that would be just as you would like it be?

What if, as strange as it may sound, this was the moment of urgency that you had been waiting for to finally transform the company into what you always wanted it to become?

What if this crisis was your chance to walk the talk of your dreams and do the things you and your teams always thought were impossible?

What if now was the time to have transformative conversations with your people instead of just useful talks? The right time to go beyond the limitations of your past experience and try new stuff. To expand your business and your culture beyond what you thought was possible? 

In times of adversity human beings have access to inner resources that they didn’t even know they had. When we pass through the barrier of our fears and the limitations of our thinking, we can open our eyes to new possibilities and radically change. That is true for individuals and for organizations. And this is what transformation is all about. 

Don’t underestimate the power and flexibility of our mind. Both at individual and collective level.

Start with yourself as a leader, see it for yourself first, feel it, share the spirit, spread it, take everybody with you and show the way. When you start seeing far and expand as a leader and as a leadership team, when you start seeing beyond the limitations of your mind, you open up to a whole new world of possibilities and can have a profound impact on your organization and its future.

Try it! Question the old way. Explore beyond what you think you knew. Face your fears. Ask your staff about their dreams. Have real conversations with your teams. Dare to look beyond the limitations you made up for yourself and your organization. Dare to dream.. for yourself and together..

What if so much more was possible? More than your mind can even imagine.. wouldn’t it be cool to not only talk about it but really do it?!

Please don’t try to go back to “normal”. Dream of radically new possibilities instead!

Now is a good time. Not only to dream, but to pursue our dreams. If not now, then when?
