There are these moments that decide a lot.
You are the focus of attention, presenting a project idea or a concept for a far-reaching change. The outcome depends on your performance - on how well you convince other people of your message.
How can you prepare yourself optimally for these decisive moments?
A case for a sparring partner, a case for Business Sparring.
In Business Sparring, your sparring partner helps you to be in the right frame of mind at the crucial moments.
Therefore, what is a sparring partner? Your active coach and companion in a confidential and protected area before you make your big entrance.
You are in focus with your topic and receive individual and precise support.
Your business sparring partner does not go easy on you - you
Your sparring partner ensures that you come out of the joint preparation well prepared, strengthened and more confident.
Business sparring is by no means one-dimensional - it offers suitable formats for individuals as well as teams and organisations.
Let's talk about your specific training for your decisive moment!

Business sparring can add value to you or your organisation with these signs - how does it work and what formats are available?
The term sparring comes from martial arts - the athlete's skills are improved through targeted training.
The sparring partner ensures that this intense and tough training is fair, positive and without injury.
These principles translate well to the business arena. In business sparring you get exactly the space you need to prepare.
As your sparring partner, I prepare you professionally and specifically, always with your goal in mind. You benefit from my many years of corporate experience in management meetings and decision-making bodies - I ask you the questions you need to prepare!

Markus was of great support to me as business sparring partner when I was in charge of logistics operations at one of our largest production locations. We had several large investment and tendering projects ongoing.
His excellent financial and business expertise helped a lot in weighing the various options against each other and in achieving top management approval.
Moreover it was a great pleasure to work with Markus due to his highly cooperative and team focussed working style.

Business sparring works.
When it comes to important issues, you need someone who asks the questions that many others shy away from. This can make the difference between success and defeat - I have learned this in my corporate career.
You also need experience in a variety of functions, situations and projects and the ability to quickly understand the context of your counterpart.
These skills have been confirmed to me by board members, division heads and senior managers from a wide range of functions in the course of my professional career.
Business sparring works in a short time.
You often need no more than an hour of joint work for initial impulses and the development of new perspectives. In over two decades I have helped many people to prepare perfectly for the decisive moments.
In addition, I have successfully set up and led all formats for teams and organisations myself.
