Leadership – Teamwork – Ownership. If you want it – you can learn it. But not in a day and not from a textbook. It’s a journey... and a personal one.
Is it exciting? Yes. But it is also demanding. Because we question routines, because we challenge comfort zones. Because we free you from the excuse of just keeping on doing what you have always been doing. You will move from knowing to doing to being.
Our partnership enables and encourages you to reflect & act. Nothing – absolutely nothing – remains taboo. Every day, we want you to experience the excitement of NEW MONDAY MORNINGS.
People andQFIVE. Companies andQFIVE. Organizations andQFIVE. Cultures andQFIVE. Whatever it is, andQFIVE adds something crucial. In training, coaching, transformations and processes andQFIVE gives important building blocks to achieve growth and success.
It is not your IQ determining success in life. We have five Quotients (Qs) that will make a difference for every leader, for every team: Alignment, Vitality, Emotion, Results and Mind.
Hence our name – Five Quotients for better results: andQFIVE.
We do team- and organizational transformation programmes – from one-day team-alignment workshops up to multiple year digitization or fit for future programmes. We work industry-agnostic: From shopfloor to boardroom. From start-up to multinational. There is no standard offering – each situation is unique. However, we have ideas, hypotheses and questions for you. And we have modules which work like a plug-and-play approach to hit the ground running.
You want to grow? You want to have aha-moments? You want to sharpen your mindset, skillset and toolset? You really want results and you are ready to work on yourself? OK – let‘s talk!
Coaching is tricky: There are many definitions of it. There are many myths around it and it polarizes: Many people swear on it – many don‘t consider it as an option. Our perspective: It works – but only if both parties are leaning in. We do not solve the problems for you. We help you to change perspectives, reflect and search for the answer (you might already carry in you). And for sure: With the clear intent to make you succeed – we challenge you. Our aim: Let‘s move from drama to solution as fast as possible.
