PnL MASTERCLASS (June/July 2020)

Particularly in times of great uncertainty and change, everyday management in start-ups can become a human test of strength. But usually we have more leeway than we realize. A fascinating key lies in Positive Psychology, the science of successful living and working. As soon as we have understood how the brain and mind work, numerous possibilities open up to organize our daily work routine in such a way that we feel more efficient and motivated.
