When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others windmills. (Chinese proverb)

"I’d like to build windmills with both managers and associates and contribute to the long-lasting success of the organizations. The success of a change process depends on the behavior and on the standing of the involved ones. Therefore I give at least the same importance to the so-called ’soft facts’ as to the ’hard facts’ and figures."
