Seven-day seminar over two parts for executive managers, in particular top and senior managers as well as experts with management responsibility aiming to achieve above-average results with the help of their employees and teams, and improving their efficiency as a leader and coach. And for managers with responsibility for results whose function requires a high degree of implementation and decision-making skills.


Well-managed companies are set on their course for success: Their profitability is above the industry average, attractive future fields can be occupied in time thanks to good investments, there is a constant optimistic atmosphere and everyone is committed and enthusiastic to work on common goals and projects. Power struggles, intrigues, or hedging tactics only occur infrequently. The winning spirit and the desire to achieve outstanding results as a group is paramount.
