We all know, earning a decent salary is a very important topic for job satisfaction.
But it’s not the only one.
Especially when you look at IT employees, who mostly earn a nice salary!
A recent study by Careerbuilder.com including a representative sample of 240 full-time IT-employees came up with 8 aspects which are MORE IMPORTANT THAN SALARY!
69% Job stability
64% Office location
60% Good work culture
57% Affordable benefit plans
40% Learning opportunities
40% Flexible schedules
40% Good career advancement opportuntities
40% Ability to telecommute
It shows that the quality of life, during both private and work time, becomes more and more important. We want to work in a positive environment, not be scared to lose our job and avoid wasting valuable hours of our life commuting.
One of my very successful clients, a self-made man with several companies & hundreds of employees before he turned 40, is aware of the fact, that he might be successful not only because he is good, but despite behavior that might be destructive.
Therefore he gave me green light for a project called “Start – Stop – Continue” where I am going to talk to all of his executives, managing directors and direct reports including assistants to identify, what they see as necessary to prepare the companies for the future.
He expressed his concerns, that
he might be the limiting factor for talents, because of his personality
he might feel challenged by potential successors (since his dream is to step back and become an advisor instead of running the business) and fight with them instead of fostering the potential
he destroys the creativity of his teams with his analytical and rhetorical skills
This is a true leader – he identifies a potential threat to his business (= himself) and takes action!
If you are an executive, entrepreneur or C-Level-Member, delegation is one of your most important day to day tasks. There are only 24 hours in a day, and some people achieve more than others during this given time.
What might sound easy at first sight often has it’s challenges – and in many cases all parties involved make delegation a successful or a miserable experience.
Destiny Man (www.destinyman.com) interviewed us regarding the topic of delegation and we happily replied.

Executive Coaching clients and attendees of our trainings alike tell us, that learning about the most recent study results from Neuroscience and their implications on leadership are the most inspiring and mind-changing experiences they ever had.
Neuroscience, the combination of psychology and modern medical technology like MRTs, give us the opportunity to look inside the brain of a human being while it’s actually busy with a task!
To give more companies the opportunity to get first hand insights and strategies to understand and manage their employees better, we prepared a key note speech of 30 – 75 minutes long called:
“Look inside the brain of great leaders and their employees”
Understanding the behavior of other people (like employees or ourselves) can be a miracle; especially when they are stressed out, under pressure or unable to cope (no matter why).
As a leader we can carry on and fight forever – or we can learn how to turn the situation around. Neuroscience shows us the way.
This talk gives you first hand insights into the most recent and game-changing results of neuroscience and combines it with tools & methods to lead people based on this new knowledge.
It’s going to be entertaining, surprising, jaw-dropping and hands on at the same time.
You are going to leave the talk with strategies to handle difficult situations much better than ever before.
