Peak performance by free potential

The power of TEAM: Announcement UmamiFlow

“Nobody’s perfect, but a team can be”!

UmamiFlow is proud to present its first open day on successful collaboration! We illustrate ‘team role management’ as a model, bring insight around success factors in the functioning of teams, and demonstrate how diversity has a positive influence on the performance of teams (and so your company). Furthermore you get insight in your own preferred roles and the recognition of other team roles.

Afterwards we can chat with a drink and a short golf initiation (option if interested).

Date: 26/09/2013 Time: 8h30 – 18h00

Location: Golfclub De Kluizen, Zandberg 6, Aalst, Belgium

see you there!

UmamiFlow announcement: Sneak preview Katara

Things can’t start to live if not exposed to the outside, so that’s why this message: Innosens, Moets and UmamiFlow founded a new company with the name…  Katara!

Not that we are not happy, on the contrary, but we want and can do more… More impact and as such more results. Increasing width and depth. And not that we suffer from megalomania, no no, but alone has his limits and we are essential complements of a strong whole.

Just think about all that is natural (and as such also powerful and sustainable) and try to really look. For instance our own body is the most (complex-)inspiring system there is and it’s always around; cells are continuously renewed and killed without any external commando. A healthy system needs little hierarchy and is very proactive and adaptive; only the basic elements are required!

We believe it’s perfectly possible to create GOOD companies (new ones or transform existing ones): top performers who are attractively human and utilize the available potential. We already offer air, earth, and fire - what remains is for you to indicate which water you wish to let flow and we ‘ll remove the dams.

Wijsheid is grijs vanuit de ruimte

Ik sta hier in het midden
De wereld om mij heen
De linkerkant is bloedeloos
De rechterkant van steen
Wat voor de ene liefde is
Is voor de ander haat
Alsof we zijn vergeten
Dat het midden nog bestaat
Er is geen kant te kiezen
Ze maken ons wat wijs
Ze praten over zwart en wit
Maar wijsheid is vaak grijs
De een sterft voor een god
Die de ander dood verklaard
Alsof we zijn vergeten
Dat het midden nog bestaat
En we sluiten onze poorten
Om te houden wat we hebben
We sluiten alles buiten
Alles wat ons nog kan redden
Wij zijn bang om te verliezen
Wat al lang verloren is
En we zien niet dat de weg
Naar buiten voor ons open ligt
De eenvoud gaat ten onder
In een zee van overvloed
De kudde zoekt een herder
En de wolven ruiken bloed
En de honger naar sensatie
Maakt een koning van een dwaas
Alsof we zijn vergeten
Dat het midden nog bestaat
We zoeke naar een richting
Wij weten niet waarheen
Wij zijn te weinig samen

We zijn teveel alleen

                                                    — Stef Bos (Ruimtevaarder)

Long live a life forward!

“If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!”

S. Kierkegaard

Riddle on what holds you back

I am your constant companion. I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden. I will push you onward or drag you down to failure. I am completely at your command. Half the things you do you might just as well turn over to me, and I will be able to do them quickly, correctly. I am easily managed – you must merely be firm with me. Show me exactly how you want something done, and after a few lessons I will do it automatically. I am the servant of all great people; and alas, of all failures as well. Those who are failures, I have made failures. I am not a machine, though I work with all the precision of a machine plus the intelligence of a human being. You may run me for a profit or turn me for ruin – it makes no difference to me. Take me, train me, be firm with me, and I will place the world at your feet. Be easy with me and I will destroy you.

Who am I?

I am habit.
