- Experienced trainers or consultantsOur trainers apply the methods almost on a daily basis in their profession as consultants. We all are experienced practitioners and are pleased to share our knowledge.
Our trainings will suit you if you…

- want to expand the “usual” formats of “lecture & discussion” in workshops with interactive elements,
- want to ensure that all participants contribute and actively participate in the discussion,
- want to facilitate not only the “opinion leaders” and “usual suspects” to contribute, but for everybody to participate in the discussions,
- want to base decisions, strategies and action plans on the experiences, knowledge and assessments of all and not just on those dominating opinions,
- want to avoid time-consuming digression during discussions, but want to discuss efficiently while including as many relevant opinions and perspectives as possible,

- “Who asks and directs, leads”.
- You will acquire important leadership and facilitation skills which you, as a professional and manager, can use on a daily basis – in your current and future job
- We know what we are talking about: we have tested all methods for their suitability and apply them regularly in our consulting practice.
- Useful modifications and extensions: as experienced practitioners, we often adapt methods to the objectives and initial situations of our customers. With us, you benefit from these useful “tips and tricks”.
- Interactive method tuition “blended learning” approach: while delivering our workshop and method trainings, we already apply the methods in question.
- Safe learning environment: a variety of opportunities for reflection and practice in the context of our training
This is how we ensure the best training quality :
- Detailed order clarification:
Our in-house trainings are not mass-produced: we get to know our target group, conduct preliminary talks and always very precisely adapt our training content to our target group.
- High utility: We explore the roles, tasks and previous experience of the participants. In this way, we always deliver relevant knowledge. We do not impart methods that you are already familiar with. Thus, we use the available training time optimally to increase your knowledge and understanding.
- Interactive training setting:
We do not like frontal lectures and long PowerPoint presentations. Pointed method inputs are always followed by concrete application and transfer. Interactionis not a phrase, but deeply-felt (and cherished) conviction.
- Always up-to-date method knowledge:
Our core business is consulting. We do not learn primarily from books, but first and foremost from practical application. Take advantage of ourpractical experience!
- Evaluation and continuous development of our training formats:
We are part of a lively community of dedicated consultants and practitioners and are constantly developing and improving our method training.
Tailored in-house training and seminars
