Do want to know how to be witty and charismatic on cue? Do you want to leave lasting impressions on your audiences? Do you want to tell people in short and simple terms what it is that you do? Do you want honest feedback for new insights and additional perspectives? Then you have definitely come to the right place!
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? …
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.
- “How can I make my presentations and speeches more convincing?”
- “How can I present myself and what I am offering effectively?”
- “From day one as a new manager, I want to come across as confident and persuasive right away”
- “I’ve got a very important presentation coming up and need support and preparation”
- “Please, prepare me for an interview with the media”
- “I want to speak more spontaneously and off-the-cuff?”
- “My stage fright makes each performance a torture! How can I change this?”
- “How can I be more quick-witted?”
- “How can I lead successful meetings and negotiations?”
- “How can I make difficult decisions more easily?”
- “I want a trained conversation partner and an experienced coach, for feedback, additional perspectives, and insights.”

“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.

The eyes have a big part in the human facial expressions. There is a reason why the eyes are called the mirror of the soul. They reveal a lot about our feelings and thoughts, no matter if we want it or not. Eyes can smile, radiate joy, permeate, agree, question, doubt or reject.

Over the past two decades, a lot has changed at NOACK Training & Coaching Berlin and coaching in general. 1998, the term coaching had to be explained in Germany. Today it is used inflationary.

Yes, I do that as well!read more

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.read more
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…read more

Therefore the unconscious is a personal source no one should ignore. When you found answers you may want to do something with them. How about you? What do you do with your dreams? Do you take those who feel important for you and allow them to become smart goals? Wake Up!read more
For our personal development, we need something to aim at because goals motivate us to make the most of our skills and possibilities – our life.

Abundance is one of those things that many people desire. How about you?
It is such a cliche, but it is true: money cannot buy happiness. It can influence happiness since it can afford us necessities, a comfortable lifestyle, and opportunities that may increase our overall life satisfaction. But money, in itself, is not the abundance we seek.
It is your decision: When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.read more
A mentor is a trusted counselor, a wise, loyal, and supportive guide, an adviser, or even a coach. Nearly every successful leader can point to a mentor who played a significant role.

Odysseus asked his friend Mentor to help watch over his son Telemachus while Odysseus was away at the Trojan War. Mentorship has been around since before Socrates mentored Plato who mentored Aristotle who mentored Alexander the Great.read more

I know Karsten for over 2 years now and worked with him on many topics, from presenting to building a personal brand. He always gave very good training and advice. Also, he is an excellent hypnotherapist that helps you to solve almost any issue in one session – very impressive! My mental trainer of choice!
I asked coach Karsten Noack to help me to clarify my goals and ended up with even more. Now I got a vision, a mission and a strategy to make it happen. I stay in contact via Skype because this coaching is good for me and my business.
Karsten knows what it takes to deliver a powerful speech or presentation that makes a great impact. His enthusiasm is infectious.
Loved it! Working with Karsten is always comforting, challenging and inspiring all at once. The results exeeded my expectations. With that combination of business coaching and consulting I developed my business model as quickly as possible. Thank you!
