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 all involved parties. Therefore, I give at least the same importance to the so-called ‘soft facts’ as to the ‘hard’ facts and figures.”
