Most of them have a similar message: in the first 100 days you need to have set the course and make successes visible. Otherwise you are doomed.

They have conversations all day long: at breakfast, on the way to work, in the office, at conference tables, in the cafeteria, on the phone, via video.

You can hold conversations. Otherwise you would not be where you are today.

So why do you need training in professional communication skills?

Negotiate professionally

Professional negotiation is the highest form of negotiation, because success is easily measurable. Successful negotiation is part of day-to-day business, especially for managers.

The challenge: selling consulting services is difficult. Very difficult indeed.

Storytelling workshop

Management reports convey information, stories an experience. If you combine the two, the result is a perfect appearance, a perfect presentation. You can layer facts and stories on top of each other like a Baumkuchen. The alternation between facts and stories creates tension and thus the impetus with which you can give your audience an impulse to do what you want them to do.

Presentations and speeches are a powerful tool for convincing a large number of people of your ideas. If you spice up your presentations and speeches with stories, your ideas are more likely to prevail.

Together we will find the right story and develop the storyline so that your story has the best possible impact.

Speech and voice training

As a manager, it is you who sets the tone in the company. And we actually take that literally. After all, it is your voice that makes the difference. It is the direct expression of your personality and the audible result of the momentary interplay of breath, posture, muscle tone and your constitution.

Speech training offers you the opportunity to develop and refine your voice professionally. You will learn and deepen techniques that you can successfully implement in your everyday working life, so that it will be a pleasure to listen to you.

Coaching press conference

Preparing a talk show appearance

Your primary goal at a Panel discussion is therefore probablygood to act. With training tailored to your individual needs So become convince convince and a positive impression leave behind.

TV training

You’ve probably never thought about how you walk down the corridor outside your office. You do this spontaneously and perfectly. But as soon as a camera crew asks you to walk down the corridor in a “relaxed and natural” manner, it no longer works. All spontaneity is gone, your head has taken over and you feel as if you have forgotten how to walk easily and naturally.

And now you should be on television! It could be an interview, a report, a panel discussion, a debate or just a few statements.

Video training

With Video statements can You Your Messages Your Audience faster and convincing explain. From this Reason decide itself always more Managers for the production of video content. With a distributed workforce working from home that can no longer be reached in person via all-hands meetings and the importance of social media in the professional environment, the need for video messages is increasing.

Speaker training

You can achieve a lot with a good speech: you move people, provide orientation and confidence and are remembered. A good speech is the best proof of convincing leadership qualities. There really are few events in life with which you can achieve as much as quickly as with a good speech.

But there really are few events that can do as much damage in a short space of time as a bad speech.

Communicating change and transformation

Hand on heart: if everything remained as it is, we would have no progress, our life expectancy would be half as high and our world would only consist of what we can see for ourselves from the back of a horse. Without change, we would wear the same clothes, eat the same food and do the same things every day.

Changes in companies usually only interest those people who want to change. Therefore, successful change management is above all about dealing with people in the right way with regard to the upcoming changes and making the effects clear.

In our coaching sessions focusing on change and transformation, we train you to communicate the upcoming changes so that you can achieve your own and your organization’s goals.

Management and personality development


The need to develop leadership skills has never been greater. To succeed in a volatile, uncertain, complex and fast-paced world, you need different leadership and organizational skills than those that have helped you succeed in the past.

Role models that have been practiced over many decades are changing – at work as well as in families, between partners and between parents and children. The manager who appears to be infallible and invulnerable is a role model from a time when the boss was still recognizable by the big company car, the corner office and the anteroom with four ladies.

In our current world, leadership requires more humanity and empathy. Today’s managers need new skills to fulfill their tasks and lead their team to success. In our coaching work, we try to give managers an expanded awareness and understanding of their own personality. This develops a heightened level of sensitivity and compassion that enables a deeper connection to oneself and others.

Pitch Training

This pitch is about everything. Or nothing! They want to get the contract, the financing, the new investor, the talented top employee! It’s not just a sporting competition, it’s about you, your career, your company, your employees, your royalties.

In contrast to ordinary presentations, the pressure is much greater in a pitch presentation. There is more at stake and a decision is at stake. So you do everything you can to convince the decision-makers in your audience of your offer, your team, your fees and your expertise.

You want – no, you need – to make an impact on your pitch audience. You want to get them to do something: Be enthusiastic, decide for you!

TED Talk coaching

TED Talks and TEDx Talks place the highest demands on the rhetorical skills of the presenters. It’s a wonderful series of events with lots of really inspiring talks. Especially in a world with an oversupply of technical communication and entertainment options, this lecture format is very charming. It also emphasizes that no form of communication is more effective than direct communication from person to person.

Present like Steve Jobs

There are people who may find it a little easier to talk in front of others; some, on the other hand, are more introverted. But all of them can be great speakers and give perfect presentations – if they prepare properly and know what is important.

Steve Jobs from Apple is a good example: he was an introverted and difficult personality (at least that’s how his biographers describe him), certainly not a born speaker and certainly not someone you would have immediately described as likeable.

But he gave a great presentation!

Rhetoric training

Have you ever noticed that many companies have a name consisting of three letters? I’m sure you can think of a lot right away: BMW, SAP, DHL, UPS, IBM, ZDF, ARD, etc.

Many flags are also made up of three colors and many well-known slogans often have just three words: iPad – thinner, lighter, faster; Nike – Just do it, Audi – Vorsprung durch Technik. BMW – the joy of … you know.

And there are even more statements with the three: Obama – “Yes, we can”, Church – “Father, Son and the Holy Spirit”.

All coincidence?

Appearance at works meetings


Works meetings are a special type of event. As a board member, managing director or entrepreneur, you are a “guest in your own house” and the works council has the first and last word. There are often headwinds and it is sometimes difficult to convince participants of your own position. Especially if you hardly get any support from the audience.
If your appearance is really important to you, prepare it well!

Negotiating with Chinese business partners

Hardly any other country that is so important to us is as culturally different from Germany as the Middle Kingdom. In addition, dealing with the current political and economic relationship issues between China and “the West” is a very sensitive area that requires particular sensitivity.

Ensure your negotiation success with intercultural training!
