Futurepace – our contribution

We support projects that we find very promising. We personally know the project managers. Every cent goes to the people who need it.

The Center of Hope for Dakawa e.V. aims to create and to develop an educational and social center in the Morogoro district in the southern highlands of Tanzania, initially as a boarding school and orphanage. Here, orphans and disabled children will be able to live as boarders, and children from the surrounding area will be able to participate in class as day students. At the same time, housing for the elderly will be built, and a training center for adults is also planned. The project also aims to develop and provide support in structures for self-help and self-sufficiency in agriculture and animal husbandry, health care, and in training and education.

Emotion, passion, enthusiasm – these are still underestimated success factors in brand and corporate governance.

“We cannot not act”, no matter what we do or don’t do, we are always multipliers, “brand ambassadors” to customers, employees, colleagues. At the same time we know from numerous studies of neurobiology, medicine, and psychology that “the unconscious guides action!” What does this mean for brand management, customer enthusiasm and fan culture in and outside of your company? We have already carried out projects on brand activation for BMW and SWISS International Airlines.

Coaching techniques

How can you live up to the demand to provide people, teams and organizations with psychological well-being, successful teamwork and personal and collective best performance with the help of coaching & training?
Positive psychology is a relatively new field of research in psychology. It looks specifically at what characteristics and what conditions are related to well-being and life satisfaction and enables people to get to know their strengths and talents better and use them in everyday life for themselves.
NLP is considered a “best-of collection” of modern psychology. It offers every business and team coach a versatile tool case of effective methods to quickly, pragmatically and effectively achieve results. Wherever communication, using your own potential or effective action are important, NLP can set far-reaching developments in motion. The work is basically done through transparent interventions, whose function and goal are well understood and can be learned.
Personality assessment tools and computer-based potential analysis can provide further support and serve to objectify subjective (individual) experiences. They provide accurate and reliable information about job-related personality aspects and extra-curricular competencies as a “compass” for orienting important personal and professional decisions.

Learning and relaxing are not a contradiction

In our villa on Wendsee lake in Brandenburg an der Havel, just around the corner from Berlin and Potsdam, both can be harmoniously combined: you can recharge with views of the lake and with a distance that allows you to reflect on and optimize your everyday actions…
In Switzerland, you will find us right in the heart of Zurich – or in the cozy seminar hotel right on the shore of Lake Lucerne.

Keeping the balance

Keeping the optimum balance between our various roles and life worlds is not easy. Increasing numbers of people can no longer keep up with the demands of work, family, and community, while also fulfilling their personal desires in today’s fast paced world. Manifestations of being “off-balance” are “burnout” or “bore-out,” stress-related symptoms of a physical or psychological nature, hamster wheel experiences or the feeling of being externally controlled, of having too little time and too much do, family and partnership conflicts, demotivation and a lack of energy …
There is a collection of good practices in coaching and consulting that can show you how to get the sparkle back into your eyes and put a smile on your face. These will help you to sort things out in a structured way, to dust off your own values, to do the things that are subjectively really meaningful to you again, to shift the focus of thought and action.
This usually does not happen in a revolutionary “everything will be different now” moment, but in an evolutionary bit-by-bit shifting of the priorities in favor of what is really “in our hearts.”

The test method MOA (Meaningful Occupation Assessment), which we use when required, is used for the early detection of the individual stress load and is based on insights from industrial psychology and psychotherapy. In addition to recognizing and changing stress-generating feeling and thought patterns at the individual level, MOA is also ideal for workplace health promotion on a team and on an organizational level.
