On October 11th, I have sent out an “Appeal” to build a place in Europe where leaders can be nurtured holistically, before they dare to lead in a selflessly truth telling manner. Once they do that, we could trust them again, leading our banks, companies, governments and that means us – opening a new era of living, working, sharing and cooperating.
To me, it felt like putting my one pager in a bottle, throwing it into the network ocean. I didn’t know what to expect, but I didn’t have to wait long before things started to happen either. Enthusiastic people willing to contribute or getting involved running the ‘holistic incubator for leaders’ as I call it now, contacted me from various countries in Europe, India and China. I tied my shoe lacers and went on field trips in Europe, collecting facts and receiving feedback.
Today, my life is turned upside down. A core team of three has been formed that will get into serious business in realising this place like no other exists today. What happened to be a mere “message in a bottle” is becoming reality now. Things are falling into place with tremendous pace. I am extremely grateful for and excited about this experience. It includes having to relocate to another country once more in my life, with all the hustle and bustle, good-byes and emotions involved. At the same time this comes with an enormous amount of understanding and appreciation, kindest support, as well as a feeling that the task at hand and I as a human being are well taken care of.
