New Work & New Mindset

Reimagining work. Shaping the future.

  • How do we create an environment in which employees are happy to take on more responsibility?
  • And what mindset is helpful for this?
  • How can we rethink collaboration and leadership?

The term New Work has become popular, yet it is already four decades old. As early as the late 1970s, Frithjof Bergmann used it to call for a radical change in the world of work. For him, the purpose of work was the development of one's own personality and creativity: "What do you really, really want to do?"

Today, the professional world is undergoing radical change, and the term New Work is interpreted very differently and also very broadly. There are very different questions behind it, such as:

  • How can we rethink leadership styles and organizational models?
  • Which agile methods and tools promote collaboration and innovation in organizations?
  • How can flexible working models be adapted to the individual needs of the employees?
  • What new mindset and inner competencies do we need for the VUCA world?
  • How can we design work in a way that focuses on meaningfulness, motivation and appreciation?
  • How would it be if companies contributed to solving the challenges of tomorrow?

In essence, New Work seeks answers to the question of how we will work in the future and how we want to work.

The manner in which this is achieved varies greatly from company to company. Because there is no such thing as one solution. And not everything that has worked in the past has to be thrown overboard.

In most cases, "Best of Old & New Work" is the successful approach. Let's discuss how to match these two worlds.

Agile collaboration - success board

Agile collaboration - success board

The lack of face-to-face and informal encounters is probably one of the biggest challenges when teams collaborate exclusively virtually. Individual team members can feel isolated or unappreciated. And the "we" feeling, the bond or the view of the big picture also suffer in the long term.

The agile toolbox provides helpful ideas for designing virtual collaboration, even if the team does not usually work in an agile environment. Using a virtual success board not only makes the contribution of each individual team member to team objectives visible. The regular visualization of successes also draws attention to what has been achieved and provides appreciation. Both are particularly important in challenging times.
