Complementary: with whom do I work best together?
I team up with strong alphas because I am a strong sigma. You are the pack leader. I am a lone wolf. I am an outsider working for insiders. You are good at pushing. I am good at pulling. You are great at executing. I am great at creating buy-in. My job is to support you in everything difficult that is scary that prevents you from creating outstanding results for you and your company.
„I am one of their greatest assets.“
Expertise: What makes me unique?
I am a negotiator—a specialist in creating buy-in, consent, and agreement. I had my first 10.000 hours in deal-making when I was 21. In the past 20 years, I have coached hundreds of mission-critical deals worth billions of dollars worldwide. My Customers range from huge global OEMs to medium-sized hidden champions to blockchain start-ups. My clients all offer complex, premium products & services B2B. They are international. They are usually the most expensive.
Client Testimonials: What feedback do my clients share?
Many corporations have a strict policy against endorsing coaches and consultants. Thinking that through, I consciously decided to keep my client testimonials anonymous on my website. This way, I can ensure their confidentiality is maintained, while showcasing their appreciation for my work. Safety first.
Senior Managing Director for one of the world's largest service providers in corporate and strategy consulting as well as technology and outsourcing.
First, you are a sparring partner. I don't find anybody within the company on my level to play team. So, I'm always alone. What is so successful about working with you: it's a true partnership. I enjoy playing team together to tackle the key projects, the most challenging ones.
Second, you consistently protect my blind side. You make sure that I'm not surprised and that I don't overlook something crucial to success. That gives me a feeling of being safe. Because I know you watch out, you look out and protect my blind side.
Third, developing proposals or pitches is the most challenging thing I do. You're among the most skilled proposal writers and storyliners I've ever encountered. You turned it into an art form. Most people are satisfied with an 80% draft, but you're not. You're willing to tweak a sentence ten times until it's saying what it's supposed to say. I know, if you're satisfied. It's good. I can trust that.
Finally, our success rate is much higher if you're on board, especially with must-win opportunities. You consistently add the few percentage points that distinguish winning and losing. That's why we have worked together for so many years. Working together with you makes me happy and successful.
Full Attention: Why I limit my availability?
I am a coach dedicated to creating deep meaningful experiences that deliver transformative results for my clients. To ensure that each client receives my full attention, I limit my availability to a maximum of seven clients at any given time. I am supporting clients committed to a year-long coaching and development journey with me. If you're interested in working together, get in touch.
