ZE Thursday Tip

It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble…

It is impressive to see to what degree our brains can be lazy. Because it sticks to what it already knows, because it rejects what it doesn’t understand, because it prefers routine to curiosity. Understanding your brain better means learning to stop being fooled by your first instincts and getting beyond those feelings to be…

Everyone knows what is needed to win…

It is always exhilarating to have an intuition, play with it and suddenly feel an idea emerging from it that makes sense, that makes everything seem obvious, to the point of being surprised that no one had thought of it before. But as we pointed out in 2017, this is not enough. A strategy, a…

You must do today what everyone else will do tomorrow

Innovating means proposing something that no one has seen before! Resistance to new things that need to be learned, organized and implemented is inevitable. This is why your ideas need to be perfectly presented. By doing so, you create desire, get your teams to adhere to what you say and to lower their resistance and…

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear…

Stage fright comes mainly from fear of being wrongly judged or misunderstood. But a good speaker is, on the contrary, the one who manages to forget about himself and rather, takes car of his audience.

To reread: The game precedes the rule! What are the 4 elements of…

Without a context, it is difficult to say if the phrase by Lampedusa is the expression of a manipulation or one of resignation! But it gives us the opportunity for an important reminder: to get your teams moving, you will have to get up, look them in the eye and tell them the story they…

When we realize that we risk nothing on stage…

We are often asked if “it helps to do theater!” Of course it provides a reassuring technical base. But more importantly, what is formative is being faced with stage fright, because we learn to deal with it. We understand that it’s useless to wait for it to pass. And we discover, performance after performance, that…
