When did we Germans become such pussys, collectively?
From a recent project: let’s launch this new service in Germany. German Head of Sales: no, we can’t, we have these and those problems with our dealers and can’t risk to annoy them more.
Fallback: let’s launch in Netherlands. Dutch Head of Sales: yeah, we have the same problems as the Germans, but it’s a fantastic opportunity to go to market together and learn something that will benefit everybody, also our dealers!
How can the same situation be perceived so differently? When did we Germans - collectively - decide to become pussys and never risk anything anymore?
And how can we break this vicious cycle?
How can we excite people for change, for risk-taking and ultimately for an even better future?
