Anyone who can distinguish debtors from creditors and knows what the five letters Ebita mean has the feeling that he should be general manager by the age of 25 at the latest. And six months later Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Otherwise you change companies.
More and more feel their potential is limitless. Patience, some self-doubt, a little bit of humility, modesty and restraint? That was the day before yesterday.
It is better to stand in shoes that are much too big than to see your own limits.
As a result, impostors are given managerial positions of responsibility. And make steamy chatter a career in politics.
The phenomenon is also spreading to sports. Every father of a football junior is firmly convinced that his father has Messi’s feeling for the ball and should get his first professional contract by the age of 15 at the latest. Otherwise it’s the coach’s fault.
Life as a game without borders. Always forward, always up.
No risk, no fun. Those are the first two words you learn in kindergarten.
Where does it come from? From the USA. From the land of Muhammad Ali and Donald Trump. A dishwasher career awaits everyone. All you need is the winning spirit!
There were times when we actually lacked something of the American self-image and the corresponding winning mentality in this country. But the pendulum has long since swung in the other direction. Nobody wants to wash dishes anymore. Just make a career.
That’s what the mental trainers and motivational coaches, who are springing up like mushrooms, also preach. And promise every wooden foot that he can become world champion. He just has to want it.
When things go wrong, he’s stuck with the psychological trauma processing. Also a booming industry.
President of a big football club? No problem. Doesn’t need experience. Anyone can do that. Also David Degen.
For a year now he has been hopping around like a kangaroo and has conjured up a new personality out of the bag every day. The third coach is coming in twelve months. The board of directors has lost track.
Success? rebuild? So far none. Although his motivational coach probably predicted that he would walk through the league, make millions in transfers and win the Champions League in two years.
And stick your nose at the unsuspecting competitors.
Now the last millions from the golden era have been used up. In desperation you return to Papa Heusler’s lap.
He now advises FCB. And the possible new coach Alex Frei. And Patrick frame. In between it was also GC. Heusler stands for success and competence.
conflicts of interest? There are none. say.
Good advice is actually expensive. In Basel it is free.
The motto is: No risk, no fun.
