Vandaag het gesprek met Andrea Klepsch.

Founder of modem conclusa gmbh, as a pioneer in sustainability consulting and communication; internal and external communication. 

Being enthusiastic about sustainable management and ecological-social lifestyles as a creative act in the sense of building, caring for, and honoring is what drives her.

Her professional recipe for success consists of three basic ingredients:

  • the knowledge and experience of the importance of nature shaped by vitality,
  • the intensive study of (eco)systemic mechanisms of action,
  • the ability to combine creativity and strategy, seasoned with a lot of courage and deep empathy.

She finds it particularly nurturing to maintain close, cooperative relationships with farmers in her town and to have been trained as a “temporary cheesemaker”.

Enjoy the insights of Andrea.

Laten we beginnen…

In gesprek met Andrea leerde ik:

  • She is into the natural spirituality
  • Follow the resonance.
  • There is an individual tempo and planting seeds turn into individual healthy development.
  • She doesn’t talk about greenwashing. Everyone starts somewhere and then it evolves.
  • Andrea is not fundamental. Fundamentalism destroys growth and development. She rather asks questions to bring the people along.
  • modem conclusa; modus = the way you do things; conclude = invite people to draw their own conclusions, and not to persuade.
  • Sometimes it is good to learn the opposite of what you want to do; it strengthens you.
  • Perspective thinking means for Andrea, diving into the perspective of how other people are thinking.
  • Why is it so hard for us (in the Western World) to feel enough?
  • Trust comes from the feeling there is enough.
  • Michael Braungart: “In nature, there is always enough.”
  • We have lost the practical skills.
  • With our basic skills, there is always a social interconnection.
  • If we help each other with these basic skills we form a community. Be aware of the basic skills of others in the company.
  • IDG is the best framework developed and it brings the light on kills we all have.
  • Starting each meeting with 3 minutes of silence. Experience the value of slowing down before the meeting.
  • De IDG’s are very inviting.
  • The V. World Organic Forum have put the SDGs and IDGs on their agenda for the forum in 2023
  • Avoids the words making the world better – she asks questions about the status quo, are you content with it?
  • Do you hear enough laughter in your company?
  • The organic companies are from the outer to the inner. Traditional companies it is more from the inner to the outer.
  • How do we get out of the pressure for the SDG’s? We need patience too, pressure paralysis. We need dynamic balance. See the book of Paul Behrens – The best of times, the worst of times.
  • Andrea limits her media consumption. It helps her to be mentally healthier.
  • If we make a business out of the IDG’s, we are lost.
  • Make people more curious, instead of saying how you should do this.
  • Invite people to come to inner development. She uses it when she feels it is the right moment. She is not creating a concept.
  • We should go back to more experimenting.
