The Liechtenstein Academy Foundation is an internationally recognized training institution that belongs to the Princely House of Liechtenstein. At its heart, it focuses on social, entrepreneurial and family issues within the context of personal responsibility and economics. These topics are explored through the latest scientific knowledge using proven methods and conveyed to a far-sighted public.
What is most impressive about the Liechtenstein Academy is its holistic approach, which not only takes into account specialist knowledge and skills but also encourages participants to view their own patterns of life and behavior.
Erich Kirchler (Prof., Liechtenstein Academy Foundation Board member)
I nowapproach difficult topics in a calmer way and a number of people have given me the feedback that I seem totally relaxed. I see the opportunities, rather than the problems and take delight in the small things, as well as the large. A very concrete point of improvement is multitasking, which I am getting better at avoiding.
Konrad Kuenzli (Baumann Group, Inspiration and Sovereignty 2017 participant)
With the programs of the Liechtenstein Academy, the LGT offers its employees a unique opportunity for further learning, in which holistic personal development is in the foreground.

It’s easy to explore the surface of an object with our conscious senses. But what about the underlying «internal surface nature»? Carlos A. Gebauer takes his readers once again on a intellectual journey that leads to a deeper understanding of social interaction.
Complexity cannot be overcome in social systems. It is an integral part of every form of life and always characterized by the fact that our knowledge of the interconnected relationships is never complete and fixed. Based on the story of Alice in Wonderland, Ina Schmidt once again manages to take the reader on an inpsiring philosophical journey.
When we talk about complexity, we often think about machines or social contexts. The fact that human beings are also extremely complex systems is often overseen. In this thought stimulating blog post, our health expert Christoph von Oldershausen investigates the complexity of the human body and notes with a wink that we were not meant to sit all day.
Regardless how much knowledge and experience a person acquires in the course of time, they can never escape the challenge of having to make decisions every now and then based on speculative knowledge. This blog entry is a plea for more courage to embark on an uncertain future and shows that when dealing with complexity properly, it does not have to lead to despair, but can also bring about innovation.
On our blog, our authors Ina Schmidt (philosopher), Michael Trybek (therapeutic clown), Carlos A. Gebauer (lawyer and language expert) and Christoph von Oldershausen (movement expert) write about their personal approach on the topic of «dealing with complexity». Let yourself inspire by different perspectives and enjoy a new insight into our 2018 general theme once a month.
