It's the dawn of a new era in which everything is constantly changing. The world is faster, more collaborative, purpose-driven and full of opportunities. The problem is that most of us are playing the new game with an old set of rules and skills, and the phrase “we have always done it this way” can put you out of business over night. In today's increasingly connected world, the tools once used to thrive need to be upgraded. To stay ahead in the new game, you need to be skilled at generating creative ideas, creating smart collaborations, doing more with less, and taking action.
The introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) is causing a significant disruption in the workspace, with many traditional services like in the financial and human resources are outsourced or shift to digital services and BOTS and even the physical offices are now being replaced by the shared office-spaces.
The introduction of the New-Shared-Economy idea, where access is more important than ownership is a major shift in our way of thinking. The most successful companies these days have no assets, but allow access to services - UBER provides rides but owns no cars; Facebook provides content but writes none; Airbnb provides accommodation but owns no property. Have you considered these changes and how to implement them into your work-space ?
Individuals, teams and entire organizations are looking for better ways of thinking, collaborating and taking action. However, the biggest challenge is how to manage these changes? How to keep employees engaged, motivated and productive? How to adapt to this new game? Entrepreneurial thinking is the answer. And it’s not just about business, it is the new way of life.

The Red and Green Titles in life – Our perspective on what we see as mandatory (Red Titles) vs. optional (Green Titles) are no longer necessarily valid, old rules can and should be challenged.
Zoom Out – Pause, breathe and look out from being in the thick of things to widen your view, broaden your perspective, and take a holistic look at the total picture. This allows people to see more opportunities and possibilities than what was there previously.
Quantum Leap – An incredible new reality that came about without the typical planned linear progress. One minute you are here, and the next minute you are all the way over there. Celebrating the miracle!
Smarketing – Smart marketing where instead of selling, pitching, convincing, or recruiting, you simply share your unique message the right way and attract your ideal customers or community to you, with ease.
Communicating directly with your community. When engaged in the same mindset rhythm as others around you, your communication and community become transformational.
