Do you know the feeling of being fenced in and you cannot act and behave like you would genuinely do?

Inspired by a fantastic impulse talk by Anja Förster from the Initiative ‚Rebels at Work’ back in 2019 the following metaphor still sticks in my mind.

With this post we want to ask something of you all!

Take a stand, be bold and show courage, disagree and foster healthy debates with others, allow yourself to think out-of-the-box. In many cases these are the behaviours that lead to brilliant ideas, help to strengthen relationships, generate surprising insights and support you in building high-performing teams. 

Have you been fenced in? How did you remove those barriers?
