Taking responsibility instead of victimhood

Where can we take more responsibility today? Where can we exert positive influence?

May I introduce myself?

Coach and trainer Karsten Noack Berlin

Hello, I am Karsten Noack! I live in Berlin and at the same time, I am a globetrotter. Since 1998 I’ have been an independent coach and trainer and I speak German and English. I am media-savvy and an engaged speaker. Height: 1.83 m, weight: 73 kg, just in case you want specifics! The focus of my work is coaching and training in Berlin – see website title ;-) – help people to present themselves and sell their proposition or their idea, or whatever it is that they are offering and to do this in a convincing and successful manner. My clients are companies, executives, professionals and start-up businesses, people in politics and science, but some are also private individuals. And maybe you will be my client, too.

So, what I can I do for you? …

Next Event

Monthly Meeting in Berlin: And what are you doing? Self-Presentations, Everyday Pitch, Elevator Pitch, ..

On June 21, 2018, at 19 p.m. is the next meeting in Berlin. The topic of this meeting: And what do you do professionally? Everyday self-presentations. Exercises, exchange, network … for career and entrepreneurship.

Present yourself and your concern convincingly

 

Whether you want to use it for your career, your business or your role as a do-gooder, in talks, speeches, presentations or for the pitch of the next big thing … Only if both — the message and the messenger — are convincing, you will move ahead. But this is sometimes easier said than done. Even the best concepts have to compete with many others.

 

 

 

Far too many opportunities remain unnoticed!

 

We never hear anything about certain great ideas as they dust in the drawer, even if they could be implemented easily. A pity for all those who would have benefited.

A lot of interesting messages do not reach the appropriate audience. Nowadays, many people want to be heard, but only few are prepared to listen. Thus, it is not easy to be noticed when even the recipients have a hard time to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Yes, it takes courage. Not every message is welcomed with open arms. Today, the earth is round, yesterday it was considered flat. Those who dared to launch a new concept have rarely made friends. If you are willing to do that, I will support you. Are you well-prepared? It is absolutely brilliant when good preparation meets the right opportunity.

When in a far-away future it is written on my gravestone, “A companion for heroes!”, I have made my contribution to the world and to you.

One more question, Mr. Noack: What exactly is coaching?

 

Coaching is …” Well, as far as the lexicon is concerned there are many definitions. For me, coaching is to support people who are at a turning point or stuck in a dead end. People who have important decisions to make, who have ideas and find it difficult to implement them. People who want to change direction and still wrestle with old habits. In these areas and more, I’ll help you by giving constructive feedback and suggestions, I’ll encourage reflection and create clarity. I offer additional perspectives and expand your creative leeway, preparing you for change and accompanying you on your journey even through the challenging parts.

And where necessary I offer training addressing idle skills. After that, then you are really well-prepared.

Body Language Expert Explains Trump’s Awkward Day At The NATO Summit

It may be mere speculation that Donald Trump is compensating for something. Yes, certain behavior may give that impression.

I guess most people agree that Trump wants to be seen as an alpha male. We needn’t have to look further than to his body language to confirm that. It seems to be so important for him — that his desperately desire appears more often as insecurity than as a sign of strength. Someone with a strong self-confidence wouldn’t do it like that. Even though it is good to remember former US presidents; most of them showed some kind of bit strange alpha male behavior — even Barack Obama. That’s how US-Presidents do it! But all that is harmless in comparison to Donald Trump’s strange behavior and all the handshake gates. His special handshake style came under media scrutiny after meetings with the Japanese and Canadian leaders.

Let me analyze Donald Trump’s body language when he met Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, Duško Marković and other leaders at the NATO-Summit in Brussels.

Are You A Do-Gooder? Make The World A Better Place

Eliminating Your Fear Of Public Speaking

What’s the big deal about public speaking? Old books will tell you that there’s no reason why you should be afraid to give a public speech.

For a long time, the understanding was that people were afraid because they weren’t prepared. So, the whole focus was spent on being as well prepared as possible. And preparation meant the technical part of presenting. Do it again and again and everything will be fine. Therefore many trainers developed programs, which are really heavy on preparation and practice. But, that isn’t enough for most people with intense stage fright.

The Importance of Showing Appreciation

We all need to know that we’re important in other people’s lives. We all want to be noticed and valued. And we really need to be noticed and valued in private in business life. It doesn’t matter whether your office is a boardroom, classroom, or anywhere else. Appreciation is at the core of all healthy relationships. Most of us feel like we don’t get enough appreciation. Did you know that one of the main reasons people leave their jobs is because of a lack of appreciation? It’s demoralizing when you’re not recognized for your efforts and skills. There are a lot of people who do things for you every day. Employees, colleagues, family, and friends are expected to do their part. Do they know that you appreciate them? Let others know that you appreciate them.

Why do I believe that it is so important to show appreciation? Because…

Far From Truth: Most People Think They Are Very Good At Lie Detecting

Most people think they are very good lie detectors but that is wishful thinking and so far from reality.

It is true that some people are really born human lie detector without specific training. But those are rare exceptions. Naturally, we are far better at telling lies than detecting them.

Ouch! Ouch! Do you really want a husky voice?

The voice is a reflection of the personality. When a person speaks evidence of their age, gender, race, education, health and environment is shown. The voice provides a glimpse into the innermost psychology: emotions such as anger, joy or fear change our voices. With vocal pitch, intonation or melody, we also get snippets of a person’s personality. We can see how they are as a person, how they want to be, how authentic they are. It’s not just clothing that tells you a lot about someone but their voice says a lot too.
