After the manner of the cranes
Changing places is a good habit.

For me, moving around opens up new perspectives and gives me strength. For years, I have been following the cranes that migrate westwards over my house in southwest Germany at the end of October and November. I meet them again at Lac du Der on the Marne, where they gather to continue their migration southwards.

The photo accompanying this article shows a group of cranes returning from the surrounding fields to the lake in the evening, providing them with shelter for the night.

I am fascinated by these birds, which have followed the old routes with great determination and reliability for thousands of years. At the same time, they flexibly adapt their migration habits to current weather conditions and long-term developments.

I also like their #communication skills and the flexible cooperation within the flock.

That’s probably why I chose the picture of a flock of cranes for the header of my LinkedIn page.

Once again this year, I spent a week here at Lac du Der, enjoying nature and successfully forbidding myself to work.

Unlike the cranes, I’m not staying here for the winter or moving further south, however tempting the idea may be. Today, I return to my everyday life and work, which I enjoy, with renewed vigour.

My daily work with couples awaits me in Volxheim (Bad Kreuznach), and the newest projects with Diane and Antje are at the Coaching Institute in the Sinnreich in Wendland.

There, we stand together for good handling of the #knowledge of our time, with complexity, diversity, and self-efficacy.
