“I sincerely believe that steering a course towards enthusiasm has a positive impact on the way we treat each other. If we understand these dynamics, it has considerable consequences for the way we arrange and run organisations. Work becomes more enjoyable, gives deeper satisfaction and has greater value for the surroundings. Companies that operate on enthusiasm not only become more successful, but also more client-oriented and they start behaving in a more socially responsible manner. Mistrust in companies and the government disappears because there is quite simply no reason for it any more. Accordingly, I believe the world becomes a better place if we take enthusiasm as our guiding principle.”
