Back on a proper karting track after four years!

After four year it was time for Riccardo to get back on a top karting track he is very familiar with, where he feels at home: the Siena Circuit. He was there with his wife Julia, his grandson Josue’ David Gilles (10 years old first time driving) and two friends, Marco and Massimo Chini.

It was a fun day! we tested the Birel 125cc no shifter and also the Honda 4 strokes before enjoying a light lunch in the pleasant atmosphere of the track restaurant.

As always, thank you to the entire Torsellini family for the kind and professional hospitality.


Knowledge in todays’ organizations is something in continuos dynamic flux in order to reach, develop and sustain a competitive advantage; the reason for it: it becomes obsolete fast.

I come to truly understand the key meaning and reach of futuristic managerial classic research I learned during my studies in the USA: “The Knoledge Creating Company” and “The Future of Management”. This happens in light of the much more recent work and research brought forward on innovation by Dipl.Ing. Lars Behrendt and serendipidty and connecting the dots by Christian Busch.

All of this research sets people at the center of development processes that are more technological then ever. This is a very interesting and crucial phenomena set to radically change the way we interpret and live organizations while they create value in order to survive and grow within consistently changing conditions and disruptions coming from all sorts of different sides.

The key is to focus on individual and team performance to createvalue perceived by the client.

At MindUP Enhancement Psychology we enable to reach the pick of such performance while focusing also on people wellbeing and performance sustainabikity. Our research, method and protocols in order to enhance such individual and group performance are data focused and performance driven , active in sport (our method took origin within the top echelon of motorsport) as well as the organizational world.

Stay tuned for fascinating and far reaching insights on how this process generates innovation and creates lasting value …

Riccardo Paterni, Project Business Developer del progetto editoriale Italia Economy

Un modo per contribuire concretamente allo sviluppo del sistema economico e sociale italiano e’ quello di proporre, sviluppare e diffondere temi centrali alla crescita di aziende e persone; farlo coinvolgendo nel modo più partecipe e attivo possibile i diretti protagonisti.

Un nuovo modello di società, di economia, di relazioni. L’eredità del dopo Covid sarà un Sistema nel quale vecchi e nuovi Attori dovranno ritrovarsi, conoscersi, cooperare, progettare un nuovo modello di società e di relazioni economiche, con al centro i giovani. Da questo nasce il progetto Italia Economy.

Italia Economy è concepita come osservatorio vivo e strumento di comunicazione e dialogo. I nostri interlocutori sono i giovani, le imprese, le istituzioni, le associazioni, le industrie, PMI, il mondo delle professioni e della formazione. Una nuova sfida che nasce in un momento critico, di cambiamento di paradigma e di modelli, mettendo al centro l’economia italiana e le imprese, il lavoro, l’innovazione e le start up, PMI innovative. La vocazione di Italia Economy è di essere facilitatore, in un momento di grande cambiamento, della diffusione della voce dell’impresa nuova che avanza, con visione del futuro, esempi da seguire, modelli per un nuovo business sostenibile.

Questo ha in se principi professionali e di vita che da sempre caratterizzano l’attività’ di Synergy Pathways.

E’ con vivo piacere che metto al servizio esperienze, competenze e rete di contatti per alimentare la creazione di valore che fa parte della mission di Italia Economy.

When change and uncertainty become empowering…

“Connecting the dots” (title of a must read book), is a meaningful saying that has found boosting power in Christian Busch‘s serendipity seminal research. The new bonus chapter from the original publication further boosts the current relevance Christian’s work: “Navigating Uncertainty: Connecting the Dots for a more Joyful and Meaningful Life“.

During recent months I have have enjoyed dialogues with Lars Behrendt  inspired by his thought provoking work on innovation (another must read book “Get Real Innovation”). His view on the topic focus also on opportunities arising from change and uncertainty.

Christian and Lars have a marked concretely uplifting vision of the human potential.

Herewith I further connect the dots by linking their vision within change and uncertainty to the empowering, scientifically driven practices that characterize MindUP – Enhancement Psychology method and protocol: data driven, performance focused.

Christian, Lars, thank you for you consistent inspiration; from your work I sense that you have several potential dots to connect. Lars and I are beginning to connect them with MindUP – Enhancement Psychology to push forward positive far reaching change for many people.

Let’s enjoy the journey!
