Our approach is modular, scientifically based and aligned to answering individual questions. It can be used as a basis for decision making in recruitment and selection or as a tool in development processes. Statements about personality structure as well as behavioural tendencies of managers, specialists and teams are possible.

Result | taking sound decisions in recruitment, defining concrete development measures, evaluate Self-/Time and Stress Management skills, reflecting on external and internal image, use of team resources.


Our solution-oriented activities build on the principles of self-responsibility – we empower for self-development.
We address individuals and teams who want to work in a structured manner on topics relating to their professional lives, developing personal competencies or managing their professional reorientation (Newplacement). Coaching ideally starts with an assessment of potential – an increased level of self-awareness promotes the rapid implementation of what is known into practice.

Result | shaping development individually, optimizing Leadership and Management competencies in a personal way, reflecting management situations, gaining self-confidence, discovering the opportunities of a professional reorientation/Newplacement.


HR-Services | Outsourcing

Many projects ahead and no resources available!
We take over partial or complete processes in the HR life cycle. In recruitment: by defining and implementing the search strategy, leading structured interviews and selecting by means of assessments. In HR Consulting:  as an HR Business Partner. In HR Development: as concept creator, trainers or inhouse coaches.

Result | using HR competency as a flexible resource.

HR Fitness Check

We aim at a thorough analysis of the existing HR instruments and processes as well as their organizational embedding and orientation towards the company goals.
The scope of analysis is explicitly discussed, clearly defined and accomplished together with the people concerned. An action plan with concrete recommendations is the result.
In workshops the implementation is done step by step and assured.

Result | reinforcing existing competencies, implementing concrete optimization measures realistically and time phased.

Changes and Workshops

Through our customized workshops we guide our clients through topics such as vision-, mission-building, annual reviews, values, conflict resolution, change processes, from conception through realization and after-care.

Result | solid preparation, clearly defined needs and goals, creating customized interventions.


We assist managers, specialists and teams in order to train their competencies so they can successfully handle new challenges.
Our activities are based on specific needs and are presented in a custom-designed training concept. Participants are personally addressed, superiors directly involved and play an active part in the development process.

Result | a mix of practical cases, reinforced with theoretical input and instruments,  resource-oriented as well as VUCA-world adapted interventions.


We aim at personal partnerships based on trust, honesty and transparency. Our credo: short term interventions with long term effect! Our customers are small and medium sized companies as well as affiliates and departments of nationally and internationally active groups.
