De Leader Being Strength Indicator (kortweg: “LBSI”) is aan de ene kant een assessment methode als alle andere, zegt Roelien Bokxem, oprichter van PresenceAtWork: “Je krijgt ook bij ons een keurig rapport met je sterke kanten, je valkuilen, noem maar op.” Maar aan de andere kant is bij haar assessment ook alles anders, voegt ze er meteen aan toe: door iemands lichaamshouding en oogopslag te analyseren leer je volgens haar veel meer over iemands pe

RADIO BUSINESS ELEVATION SHOW: LEAD WITH LOVE OR LEAD WITH FEAR?

Is it best to always use love rather than fear for personal, business or political progress? Should we be encouraging qualities such as integrity, love and peace rather than using fear to gain power at all costs as embodied in Machiavelli’s 16th century teachings ‘The Prince’?

Look at where we are: society, which demands nuance, is made of people who struggle to distinguish anything but black and white, right and wrong. We really need an update in our human programming to match the world we've created
