Feedback from our Clients

“I was astounded and surprised by how easy it seemed for Maik to invite, include and excite everyone in our diverse workshop group. Despite the variety of Leadership and Coaching experience that was present, he gave everyone value to take away.

The colourful mix of methods and the exercises helped me translate it on the spot; there was a lot of space for active learning. I also noticed the artful use of all kind of modern media (finally someone who does not demonize smartphones!).

But my turning points where the many honest and direct discussions about when to use coaching (and especially when not!). Thanks for keeping this free from preaching and lecturing.

Maik had a fantastic feel for the people in the room and simply radiated energy throughout. I can’t thank him enough for this starting point of my new internal Coaching Career.”

Uwe Seidel, Head of Practice Unit Service Industries, SAP

“I have helped hundreds of People Leaders apply world-class coaching skills with their Team Members, Peers and (yes) even their Bosses.”
