As of 2023 we introduce our first annual theme “The Year of Diplomacy” to nourish this year’s advice and consulting approach with a common source of inspiration.

In addition to my #resolutions for the new year, I have always formulated a theme that accompanied me privately throughout the year – since 2007, I suppose. In recent years, the themes included “formulate more elaborately,” “the year of stupidity – a field study,” “overcome fears,” etc. pp. I also define concrete activities so that the implementation of the theme can be measured.
For 2023, I have privately defined the theme “act more diplomatically”. For this purpose, I have found a mentor who is the proverbial diplomat in person and who will accompany me throughout the year. I am very happy about this. More about this in future posts.
As I am NORDA Advisory, I have applied this theme to the company for the first time this year.
𝗪𝗵𝘆 𝗱𝗶𝗱 𝗜 𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗼𝘀𝗲 “𝗱𝗶𝗽𝗹𝗼𝗺𝗮𝗰𝘆”?
A couple of years ago, I was very focused on attacking, fighting, and winning. This is one way to act. It can be extremely effective e.g., to stand up to certain personalities to gain their respect.
I would like to play a broader keyboard. For me personally, diplomacy and charm are very important.
Happy new year.
