Goodbye World

There is not much left to add to the great summaries of my colleagues Mary, Katrin, Thomas and Martin. We have been a great team (look at that fabulous ABOUT page, Saiid created!!!), learned a lot, complemented one another and had a good time (I will especially remember the fantastic Christmas meeting!). However, its time … Continue reading

Starting with WOMEN – Ending with SKILLED WORKFORCE

We all came together to write a blog about Diversity Management. The first thing that came to our mind was Women. Excited, I took my first steps in browsing through Mr Müllers book. There it was! Management vs. Leadership. I poured myself a glass of red wine and researched the web about how this could … Continue reading

A little short story

In the beginning there was a strong focus on female issue with posts about female Leadership, women quota for supervisory … Continue reading

Young Professionals Caught in Internships – We need Immigrants!

Now, by development of the internet I simply mean that todays generations that are most involved with the internet play … Continue reading

Who are you?

Inspirational Breaks The previous class of Blogging has been as inspiring as it was motivating to me. Inspiring in a way that before returning home I sat down on a bench in front of the metro, stepped out of my life for a moment, let go from all the stress and breathed. Nothing. Smoke. I … Continue reading

Wall Streets Newest Lie

I have a cousin, well I call him my cousin because our parents have known each other for so long and we have grown up together in an odd sort of way, and he is really really smart. Not smart in a street sense either, although I wouldn’t say he’s lacking in that department. I’m … Continue reading
