In 2008 I had the idea to build up a network of plastic and aesthetic surgeons in order to be able to exchange professional experiences. So I secured the group name Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery at Xing. The group name was still available:). In this group one should be able to exchange oneself freely. This in turn requires trust, which unfortunately is not self-evident in our circles. Everyone knows the situation when you ask a speaker a question after his presentation and get a strangely non-binding answer. Nobody tells everything they know. But that’s exactly what’s so important to get better.
Trust is therefore the key to cooperation in a group. So the question is:
- How do you create a trusting atmosphere in order to be able to freely exchange ideas with colleagues as a plastic and aesthetic surgeon?
- What do you do when this trust is abused?
- Should there be a code of conduct or a set of rules?
- Who controls this and how are decisions made in such a group?
- How do you even start a group like that?
BETTER WORK TOGETHER
You can’t make a group like this meaningful on your own. It is much better to work this out together. So you are part of the whole and really motivated. The New Zealand collective Enspiral has worked out how something like this works without getting entangled in absurd discussions. The experiences of almost 10 years can be found in her book Better Work Together.

At the end of the year 2019 the group should really take off, provided that I find you, the trustful comrades-in-arms and co-creators.
