Values as the Basis of Life


Honesty, respect and tolerance – those are frequently listed values which turn to be always valid. However, one has to ask if those values are lived in reality. No matter if we look in the private or in the societal field: despite intensive discussions it becomes more and more difficult to agree on common values.  If values are not lived they are meaningless.

At large values are defined as that what is seen as good, desirable, enriching, gratifying, lovable, useful and conducive at the private and societal level. Values can be divided in different classes such as aesthetic, religious, moral, artistic and economic ones.

Within the workshop we discuss individual values of the private and professional field. Since they determine the way we think and act, individual values are of tremendous importance. Subsequently the individual values are placed into the value system of a concrete company. On this occasion particular emphasis is placed on the role of shared values.

Basics Effective Time Management


In the Championstour we postulate: “Time is the stuff life is made of”.
Some persons complain about not enough time, wasted time or a lack of time. Even if you cannot know your exact life time it makes perfectly sense to think about time. You can at least plan the coming weeks or months and think about how many time you want to dedicate to the different areas of life.

Basis are the current priorities which can result in abandoning other goals. Don’t worry there will be enough time to dream, to relax and to handle unforeseen incidents. Our time planning helps to live a happy and fulfilling live.

The achievement of goals has a price which is the investment of time. In the workshop we discuss how time is invested wisely.

Business Etiquette


Norms and rules are of significant importance in collaborative settings. They help to determine who belongs to the group and who doesn’t. Who likes sportswear only is not in good hands at the opera ball. Who likes to wear suits only should not take part in the Opel meeting. From this examples it is easy to recognize that rules can be binding in different ways. They can be written down in a dress code or can act as unwritten laws. Especially in the professional field manners are expected and cultured. Manners ensure a respectful treatment of each other and bring safety in personal appearance. Basically one can follow the advice of Baron von Knigge (1752-1796) who claimed that you should treat your fellow men with the level of appreciation that you would take for yourself.

Especially at the beginning of the professional career employees face a lot of ambiguities in dealing with others.

Which role does hierarchy play nowadays? Do I have to let the boss go into the elevator? Do I have to accept if my boss want to link at Facebook? Do I have to shake the hand of the female assistance before I shake the hand of the boss?

Basics of Conflict Management


Whenever people work collaboratively, misunderstandings and conflicts are inevitable. At early stages conflicts can be solved easily. However, conflicts often have deeper causes and the surficial treatment does not help in a sustainable manner.
For that reason it is of enormous importance to communicate open on reasons and symptoms of conflicts. This helps to find a sustainable solution which is acceptable for all parties.
The ability to resolve conflicts has many components: self-reflection, empathy for others and courage to present the own goals and interests are critical to success. Many people have problems to directly address conflicts or to present their own interests. On this occasion discussion templates and formulation aids can help to manage conflicts adequately.

Leading Successful Sales Talks


As humans we are helpful and like to create benefits. However, we face major challenges to carry out sales activities, which should be in principle the same. One of our largest problems is that the customer does not want to recognize the large advantage that he gets with the purchase of the product. Selling products or services at a certain price means primarily an exchange which requires the thoughtful use of relational skills. Gesture, posture and statements of the customer must be interpreted, and an adequate reaction should follow. The content of the conversation is not completely clear from the start. Sales talks are rather a dynamic process and should be adapted to the idiosyncrasies of the situation.

Within this workshop you learn an easy handling of sales talks and the management of potential objections. This gives you security in the entire process.

Communication is More


Living and working together requires mutual understanding.
Misunderstandings, sub-optimal teamwork and lack of harmony
between people of different generations is often the result of
poor communications. Skillful communication is key to success in
every sense. We show how.

People are involved into worldwide communication through the internet today. They are exposed to a flood of information from different cultures and act as senders and receivers at the same time (e.g. via Facebook). Style and form of communication change dramatically which holds true also for offline-channels like telephone and correspondence. However, the core of communication has remained. Communication means exchange of facts, attitudes, feelings and intentions. At the actions of the communication partner you can see if communication was crowned by success.
The workshop is focused on own goals of communication. What do I want to achieve? Which needs should be satisfied? We examine the choice of a large magnitude of communication channels such as SMS, WhatsApp, E-Mail, telephone call, personal talk or letter. In practical exercise we employ situations from the private and professional field to optimize the result of communication.

Teamwork can be seen as a means to reduce complexity of the information age. Permanent change, globalization and demographics request the collaboration of different specialists in multiple settings.

Successful teams go through several phases until they really work as a team which is able to outweigh the results of independent individuals:

In his law on participation and integration the state of Berlin defines intercultural competence as a special case of social competence which allows people to apply special knowledge of culturally influenced rules, norms, values and symbols. The capability of people to appreciate fellows with a diverse cultural background eases collaborative achievement of goals and is therefore a basis for professional success.

Teams can receive significant impulses if the working conditions are adapted to diverse cultural backgrounds. Intercultural competence is a prerequisite to work successfully in international teams. Central to intercultural competence is the ability to grasp, interpret and adequately handle attitudes and behaviors which are shaped by different cultural influences.

Effective Presentations


These days we are flooded with information. Which of this information is important? Which ones require action? At the same time we are sender of messages. With our messages we aim to inform, inspire or move people to action. A personal presentation is an appropriate instrument to transfer our messages. However, professional presentations are not innate but have to be practiced. A successful presentation comprises the application of techniques in the rational and emotional sphere. Steve Jobs´ presentations have achieved cult status. His presentations where based on the careful planning of details and an accurate estimation of the effects on the audience.

Effective Design of Appraisal Interviews


Appraisal interviews are one of the most important management instruments to build up a performance-enhancing relation between leaders and employees. A growing number of firms use annually or even semi-annually interviews to increase the motivation and performance of their workforce. However, the original meaning of appraisal interviews is often taken to be absurd due to a lack of time, extensive regulations for documentation or a too strong linkage to remuneration. Consequently leaders and employees resist against such rigid forms of appraisal interviews.
Regardless if there are regulations for the process of appraisal interviews or not, leaders should use them to talk about goals and performance. Appraisal interviews should be used to record needs, goals and competences of the employee. It makes perfect sense to introduce a continuous communication with the employees to transfer the level of appreciation required – even if intermediate targets are not achieved in between. The ability to shape appraisal interviews makes the difference between leaders and managers.

Basics of successful Applications


Many different situations can cause the necessity to apply for a new job. Our professional engagement has a large influence on all areas of life. Consequently the choice of an occupation is of tremendous importance. A variety of factors such as personal temperament, skills and capabilities, education, general personal conditions and the will to develop personally need to be considered. Which capabilities are existent and which ones need to be acquired? Do we have the willingness to “pay the prize”? Perhaps it makes sense to split the acquisition of capabilities into certain stages to achieve the large goal.

Our own opportunities are further shaped by the conditions of the (local) labor market. Which kinds of employees are requested for which professions? We are exposed to a huge amount of information. What is important and what is less important? Which actions are requested? Which information should be stored in our memories?
At the same time we send messages to inform others, to inspire others or to move others to action. The personal presentation is an effective instrument whose operation must be practiced. An effective presentation requires the use of rational and emotional techniques likewise.

This workshop includes the basics of applications. We strongly recommend the participation in the workshop “Implementation of successful applications”.

Implementation of successful applications


You have already clearity about your professional new orientation and your application documents are meaningful and professional? Now it is time to ask the question how to contact the company of your choice. Unsolicited applications are welcome in most of the companies. Does it make sense to call the company? Or is it the better way to walk in personally? 

The first impression is decisive but the appearance has to be practiced. What should I express in the first minutes? What do I want to convey with my words?

Your partner in the company expects:

  • The applicant knows the basics of the company.

  • The applicant knows for which job or professional field he or she applies.

  • The applicant has relevant skills and capabilities and is further able to communicate them.

  • The applicant knows the rules of etiquette.

We practice various situations of different stages of the application process in role games. Our workshops transmit safety in personal appearance. We offer a platform to exchange about prior job interviews and thereby provide our participants with fresh ideas how to contact companies. We strengthen self-confidence by reducing fear of critical situations and questions.
