We in Switzerland are studying very long - because we make decisions very slowly. Therefore our Democracy is direct, people get involved, they are able to decide on there own what kind of matters our Goverment have to deal with. That is for me a way to communicate in a better way than the other states are doing except monarchy. There is one king or one queen which take all the responsability for everthing what happens in their country - unfortunately such kind of kingdom does only exist in heaven or on earth in one little tiny kingdom where the king brings a lamb to the pure-one because he lost his lamb - the king is kind and loves everybody and everthing arround him. He or she knows that is very important that everybody is confident and so...and this is not a Märli (Swiss German....) farytail it is a true-one.

So: human beeings on this planet would you like to be guest or king or queen? - It does not matter because you are almost one.

2 Keys to Being an Effective Communicator
Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in the concept of
leadership that we begin to mystify it. It’s very easy to think that developing
leadership skills is for somebody else. But in reality, each of us uses the tools
of leadership every day. The things that m...

Before anything can happen, you have to plan for it to happen. But there are some things you need to do BEFORE you start planning.

When we begin to understand that our unity comes from Christ who saved us and commissioned us, then we can start to embrace our differences and leverage them the way God intends for us to.

2 Differences Leaders Build Together
If you’ve dealt with people at all, it’s not an
earth-shattering revelation to recognize that people are different. We all come
from different backgrounds, upbringings and value systems. And as your
relationships begin to expand beyond your own culture, tho...

Closing the Loop - 2 More Keys to Effective Communication
When thinking about clear communication, it’s tempting to
put all the emphasis on the sender. But in reality, the onus for
communication is on the receiver as much as the sender. It reminds me of
the old saying about leadership. If a leader thinks he’s lead...
