About Us

As an internationally active consulting and training institute, we have over 30 years of experience in helping our clients achieve their goals, regardless of whether you want to drive a single negotiation or a large-scale transformation.

What sets us apart is that we excel in going beyond specialist knowledge and help you to understand limiting unconscious beliefs at all levels and to change these patterns in a sustainable way. Only then you can fully use your competencies to strengthen your impact.

We work across industries and functions with particular experience in the retail, industrial goods and manufacturing sectors. We offer consulting, coaching, training, e-learning and blended learning to find and implement the most suitable solution for you.

After hundreds of single coaching events about leading negotiations, Joerg Koeck and Prof. Christoph Hilger developed a formula for your personal impact which describes the co-effect of the elements.

The Four Phases of How We Work

Create Trust

The trust between you and us is the basis of our work.

We accept people and the situation as they are. We try to understand the uniqueness of you and your topics without judging you.

Only this trust creates the space needed to bring about change.

Analyze the Status Quo

Due to our unique methods and experience, we quickly understand what goals are being targeted and what is preventing you from achieving them.

We get to the bottom of the problems and spend a lot of time asking questions and listening - if necessary, we do not shy away from causing irritation in order to make you aware of your problems.

Enabling Independent Growth

This is where we differ from many other companies - we provide tools and support, but our customers do the transformation work themselves.

We are convinced that this offers our customers the greatest added value. Our ultimate goal is to empower our customers in such a way that they will soon no longer need us.

Expanding the Definition of What is Possible

Our customers are often amazed at the results they achieve.
Not only do they manage to achieve the goals they set themselves in such a way that they remain true to themselves, but they can also imagine a much better future.

This is what we strive for – to help our clients find a balance between vision, values and performance.
