Yoga in the boardroom (2)
My yogic inspiration for today is about the concept of sthira sukham, the principle of effort and ease. This principle's idea is that most meaningful results, also yoga poses, are created through both conscious effort and ease; hard work and easy energy at the same time.

Cultivating an open mind
During a dinner this weekend I sat next to the CEO of one of the biggest construction firms in our country. He was asking lots of inspiring questions; like "what is the key principle for your coaching practice" and another one was "what is your recipe for success" and even better: he really seemed interested...
I have always been thrilled by leaders who stay open, curious and inquisitive despite the fact that they are in powerful positions which tend to give them the illusion that there is nothing to discover anymore and that they have all the answers. People who stay curious and resist this appeal to know it all, keep asking questions and stay interested are inspiring to me. That is one of the reasons I founded Inspiration & Discipline...to bring learning, leadership inspiration and follow-up discipline to leaders in organisations!
