Our Portfolio

Brand Retreat

Re-authoring Brands from inside out

A brand can be much more than a name or a symbol; it can be a whole experience. This experience gets strong and convincing when it is connected to the organizational myth. Explore the myth and work on the brand core story as a team. Taking the treasure of the past to walk in the best possible future

Formate: 1,5- 2 days workshop 

Conflict Transformation and Community Building

Large Group Facilitation

Creativity, innovation and transformation are phenomenas – we aim for – in each form of organization. In fact, they emerge out of diversity in groups. Just that, quite often, we fear the ‚difference’ rather than feeling attracted by it. It needs new formats of facilitation to transform tension into collective growth. 

Formate: Large group facilitation open forum style or conference design

Lead & Change Story

Executive Story Coaching

Inspirational leadership creates stability and people engagement. You may step on stage to on board your team for a new project or you set the scene taking over new responsibilities or you lead the organization through a difficult situation of change and transformation, take a breath ... invest in your story to get it straight, empathic and compelling. It is worth it!
