sustainable success

We see our role as a means to bring about lasting changes in companies. To this end, we seek a dialogue with the decision-makers in a company in order to clarify the needs in advance, and to ensure the embedding of the measures into the internal framework and conditions (company strategy, vision, culture, management guidelines). This also allows selective measures to close competence gaps from one source.

We design our trainings in a solid, competence-oriented manner. For each topic, we use the latest findings - including those from brain, happiness, and resilience research, essences from the mindfulness concept, approaches from humanistic psychology, communication research, experiential learning, as well as from systemic-constructivist counselling.

Training

The entertaining input phases are followed by practical exercises, experiments and phases for self-reflection. The exercises are designed to "touch" people, to motivate them, and help them transfer into practice and facilitate the learning process. For the right mix of methods, we draw from a mature, extensive collection of effective methods such as: self-study of model content, sociometric methods, self-study and group work, discussion, individual and group feedback, presentation, moderation, role play, case study, experience-oriented exercises, transfer tasks, learning partners, etc.

We also offer all our services in English.

Our trainings

We offer you in-house measures which are tailor-made (in terms of content and methods) for the four topics "sustainable ..."

Diverse impulses for strength, health and success

Life balance

Create the prerequisite for an energetic and successful commitment to customers, colleagues, employees, and your tasks. The training provides an overview and a guide about "what makes people strong and sustainably balanced", and provides the most recent findings from brain, happiness, and resilience research. Build on the key factors to benefit a long-lasting and satisfying career and to improve the quality of life.

Self- and stress-management

The essence is a single question: "What is really important to me?" The second question follows directly (especially in today's world, with its almost unlimited possibilities): "What can I leave out?" - To gain more time for the essentials. Self-management is the key control element of our balance. At its core are priorities, time planning and free-time activities ("organize oneself"), and maintaining, and affirming one's own balance (“assert oneself”).

Mental Fitness

Clear thinking, the capacity to differentiate, the ability to maintain serenity and sovereignty in dealings with people all require special mental abilities. Develop mental presence and serenity, sustained concentration, and clarity. You will learn ways to balance and switch between mental peak power and rest. Experience effective techniques from applied brain research. The techniques can be implemented immediately.

Inner Peace

External control, high workload, many stimuli, long communication and concentration phases are a burden on us and call for a conscious handling of our resources. Do you sometimes find it difficult to relax, find peace, or switch off? "Inner Peace" is a resource that centres us in the midst of our daily business. There we find calmness and serenity. This ability to find serenity is not congenital, but trainable. It then becomes a personal competence.

The toolbox for more efficiency in conversations, meetings, conflict resolution, and teams.

Communication

Clear and appreciative communication is an important success factor in dealing with satisfied customers, motivated employees, colleagues, and superiors. Nowadays, we communicate more than ever before. In the training, you can professionalize your communication style so that you can position yourself and take a stand in "difficult" conversations.

Negotiation management

We "do not get what we deserve but what we negotiate," the sober conclusion from many years of consulting practice. You can professionalize your flexibility on the factual and personal levels, and learn to position yourself even better. Extend your negotiating skills to ensure that both personal and tactical "fouls" do not affect your ability to convince objectively and subjectively.

Moderation

You will improve your ability to facilitate group processes (workshops, trainings) in a targeted manner. You can practise how to better deal with objections and how to lead difficult processes constructively and motivationally. You will learn how to withstand the typical dynamics of moderation situations. You will get a fundamental overview of working methods, procedures, and techniques of tried and tested moderation design.

Conflict management

Unresolved conflicts tie up resources. Constructively expressed conflicts are necessary and often valuable. You will sharpen your perception of conflict causes and learn how to express them. Numerous practical examples will help you to understand and apply effective conflict resolution and de-escalation strategies, so that you can work confidently and smoothly with "difficult" customers, colleagues, and employees.

Team Building and Development

“Tell me and I will forget, show me, and I may remember, involve me, and I will understand.” (Confucius). Fostering a "we-feeling", openness, and trust, creating emotional prerequisites for (even) better future cooperation, recognizing (and reducing) target conflicts and friction. Constructive handling of resistance and blockages, managing shared challenges, intensive exchange on the personal and content level. Experiential learning is highly suitable for exploring practical skills. Here the opportunity to practice new approaches related to real tasks, through trial and error, is essential. Depending on the topic, the team runs several “action-reflection loops” to integrate the “lessons learned” - on both a personal and a team level. Team-up in the great outdoors, away from the default office mode – get also inspired by forest, wide-open views, and the campfire.

Soft and hard kills for a confident appearance

Present effectively

"The whole of life is a stage," – this is how we constantly present ourselves, intentionally and unintentionally. Mostly with the intention of making a decision or gaining the acceptance of our listeners with regard to facts, ideas, or products. How convincingly do you present yourself? Learn how to optimize your presentation style and how to convince your listeners in a "brain-friendly" way. Video analysis will complement the feedback from participants and trainers.

Personal performance

Up to 90 per cent of what is transmitted does not come out of our mouths. Our body is our business card. Check your impact within yourself and your external image. Through feedback, you can optimize your performance and gain a sharper self-awareness for your actions. You will receive concrete tips on how to radiate serenity and sovereignty even under pressure. If not here, where else you have the chance to experiment with new ideas and strengthen your own style - far away from rigid behavioural expectations?

Brain-friendly visualization

Support the aims of your presentation with meaningful visualizations. Learn the professional use of the flipchart and the pinboard, and surprise yourself with how you can increase your visualization competence with minimal effort. Experience how simple elements of design and powerful symbols enable you to concentrate the attention of customers and colleagues stroke by stroke, and so release creative energy. Your presentations become more lively - your listeners as well.

Creative processes for special reasons: rituals in management

Changes are often accompanied by uncertainty and fear: the old and familiar is changing, the new is still unknown. Rituals are staged settings: "Where do we stand, where do we want to go?" They help you and your employees to keep pace with the changing course of your company, provide security and structure, create order and a sense of belonging. Rituals get under the skin. Successfully staged rituals are felt as emotionally touching and valuable. This shared experience can release the power for change. It creates a community, from whose shared heartbeat something new can arise.
