"It's a skill to be still" - start practicing today

Content Area

Technology is here to help us - not to control us.

Uncertainty and tension are everyday life in companies under the pressure of digital transformation today . Employees and executives are increasingly suffering from the demands of constant accessibility and acceleration.

But always-on does not mean always-react. 

Every extreme trend has an anti trend. The following counterparts are more and more demanded by people. 

  • Noise of everyday life | Stillness
  • Increasing acceleration | Peace
  • Constant change | stability
  • Information overload and distraction | focus
  • Artificial intelligence and Automation | creativity and personalization
  • Robotics & Bots | humanity and empathy
  • Fear of Missing Out (FoMo) | Joy of Missing Out (JoMo)
  • Always-On calls | “Always-Omm” – how we call it



Here is an interview with Lilian Güntsche-Hilgendag on Mindfulness in the Digital Age by BildungsTV at the DIDACTA digital Austria, 2019. Interview is held in German.
