  1. Hallo Pedro,

    Niettegenstaande ik de verjaardag van ‘The Boss” aan het vieren ben, toch een korte bedenking op dit artikel.

    Het doet altijd deugd dat een studie confirmeert wat ik al jaren predik. In dit geval komt wat het artikel “the negative stress Mindset” noemt, neer op “being stuck in your personal Vicious Circle” en “the positive stress Mindset” op “living Creative Interchange from the inside out.”

    Voor de termen Vicieuze Cirkel en Creatieve wisselwerking verwijs ik uiteraard naar m’n boeken ‘Creatieve wisselwerking’ en ‘Cruciale Dialogen”.

    Creatively,
    Johan Roels
