In business life, the focus is mostly on technical and professional issues - products, services and actions, as well as strategies and processes. Less attention is paid to the invisible elements - the abilities and convictions that work in the participants minds as mental models, the mindset. The attentive handling of hidden influencing factors prevents unwanted friction losses in day-to-day business. The actual mental models are made discussable in workshops through indirect approaches to team building and organizational development.
Mindsets have a great influence on the acceptance and commitment of the entire workforce.

- The mindset controls information or facts that refer to known mindsets. This information is primarily and more easily processed or demanded.
- The mindset serves as a basis for evaluation, interpretation and expectation of information.
