Hello from the Coaching Team
Dear Students,

The Coaching Team is getting its own newsletter!

Every month we are going to send you a little bit of something that will help you reflect on your ways of thinking and motivate you to reach greater goals.

As some of you already know, the idea of coaching is to help you self-reflect on your strengths and weaknesses, reach high performance while minimizing and handling stress, manage your career plans, clarify your aims, as well as cope with changes and challenges.

With this newsletter we intend to help all of you be more successful in your career as well as goal setting. However, the newsletter is just a very small part compared to what actual coaching sessions can accomplish. We strongly and heartily recommend you make use of our coaching offers. You can choose from a large number of coaches. To find out more, pick a coach and book an appointment, visit the coaching area on MyEBS or contact us. We’ll be happy to hear from you!

Warm regards,

Your Coaching Team

Video of the Month
Tim Urban knows that procrastination doesn't make sense, but he's never been able to shake his habit of waiting until the last minute to get things done. In this hilarious and insightful talk, Urban takes us on a journey through YouTube binges, Wikipedia rabbit holes and bouts of staring out the window -- and encourages us to think harder about what we're really procrastinating on, before we run out of time.   Picture could not be loaded

How to dream big? Be unreasonable! - A summary.
Picture could not be loaded
According to George Bernard Shaw, a critic and polemicist that lived in the 19th century, “the reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself.” However, the author Dr. Moses Simuyemba, challenges this view in his article “How to Dream Big - Be Unreasonable”.

Looking through history, it becomes clear that people that made the biggest difference and excelled above their own generation and not the ones that adapted themselves to the world. It’s the ones that challenged general views the most, as “common knowledge” and “common sense” do not make it the truth.

Take a lesson from history!

Just a little over a hundred years ago, “catching voices from the wind” was considered crazy. It was not possible to hear people from hundreds miles away and people thinking of making it possible were considered mentally insane. Nowadays, you can not only hear people from far away, but also see them. Furthermore, virtual and augmented reality inventions make it possible to see those people right next to you in the same room. Another good example is air travel. In the 19th century a group of Harvard professors predicted that it would take at least another 500 years for humans to be able to fly. Who would have thought that the first functioning plane would already be invented in 1903?
  Be unreasonable and senseless!

Your senses enable you to see, smell, hear, taste and touch. But they cannot perceive things of mental or spiritual nature. According to Simuyemba, your ultimate dream should be unreasonable and senseless. If it is not, you are probably not dreaming big enough. Your ultimate dream has to be mind-blowing! An idea Big Dream is locate somewhere between being scarily challenging and making you question your own sanity.

Trust your thoughts and ignore your senses!

We are too sensible with our dreams. We plan according to what we perceive by our senses to be the truth. However, our senses were never designed to perceive abstract things. Our dreams begin with our thoughts, which are a mental process. In order to drem big, our thoughts need to be superior to our senses. Thus, if you want to dream big, you need to place more trust in your thoughts than in your senses, so that your mind can be free to explore the possibilities of your potential.

If your dream is big enough, you will not know how to achieve it. At the very best, you will know where to start.

Put your dream to the Acid Test and understand the inside-out paradigm!

If most people agree with you that your dream is achievable and reasonable, it is probably not worth dreaming about. If, however, you get the questioning looks, you are probably on the right track. As a dreamer, you must realize that life is lived from the inside-out and not outside-in. Everything starts in the mind. This is the place of largest conflicts. If you can manage to solve them, trust in your thoughts an live towards your dream, chances are your dream will manifest itself in the physical world, one way or another.

Dr. Aniko Kovacs-Bertrand is an independent project manager. She works in a variety of different areas with many clients, including BHWH, JP Morgan Foundation, Malteser, and Economic Promotion Frankfurt. At the same time she is teaching at the University of Mittweida and the EC Europa Campus for Project Management.

Dr. Kovacs-Bertrand grew up in Budepest, Hungary, where she studied to become a History and French teacher. However, she did not stay a teacher in Hungary for long. Further studies led her to France, and later to Germany, where she did her doctorate.
  She developed a strong interest for corporate communication and project management, later obtaining an EBS Certificate in Strategic Marketing and a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from the Project Management Institute in Pennsylvania.

As a lecturer and consultant, she often finds herself in situations where technical knowhow is not enough to solve a problem, as it is very important to understand personal motivations of people and enable their skills through those motivations in a creative way. As a coach, she can help coachees discover some of their strengths and weaknesses they might not even be aware of, as well as enable them to make career choices based on their personal motivations, especially coachees with a non-linear CV.

In her free time, Dr. Kovacs-Bertrand enjoys deep conversations with friends and family, is active in politics, has a hand for plants, and enjoys doing sports. She speaks fluent Hungarian and German, very good English and French, and a bit of Russian. Contact us to book an appointment with her!
