On Uncertain Ground

How we can better deal with uncertainty and why we need it

Uncertainty – the challenge of our times

This book is both a declaration of love to uncertainty and a guide for handling it more openly and constructively. Based on scientific evidence and her experiences in her consulting and coaching practice, as well as a three-year sailing trip with her patchwork family, Rike Pätzold shows how we can overcome anxieties about the future and regard uncertainty as a range of possibilities instead of as a danger. Here she describes how we can become aware of our inner barriers, remove blockages through simple physical exercises, become open to outcomes, and construct a reliable safety net for ourselves. In this way, we will be able to act courageously and face the challenges of an uncertain life.

Practical, close to life, and very understandable strategies for action
