Travel companion for heroes

Travel Companion For Heroes

That's what I do
Travel Companion For Heroes

We need more heroes

 

I don’t count the number of presentations I have supported. After all, it has been several years since I started my own business in 1998. In intensive cooperation, we have worked on many projects. Many ideas were put into practice. But I still realize too often, that honest and interesting messages are not heard by the intended target group. Therefore, I support people who have something important to say. How about you?

I am a travel companion for heroes

 

The world could be a better place. The problem is not a lack of ideas. I observe too often that honest offers don’t get a deserved chance. Nobody ever seems to listen to them. Those who want to do something desirable get frustrated and then give up. Some people say nothing more in public because they are convinced that they have no personal impact. This is sad because ideas have a chance through the engagement with the world and not through the separation from it.

 

 

 

So what?

 

I can no longer count the number of presentations I have supported. After all, it has been several years since I started my own business in 1998. In intensive cooperation, we have worked on many projects. Many ideas were put into practice. Usually, this was done systematically and well-prepared. For myself, I typically prefer to speak spontaneously. I love to give a speech to the audience without special preparation. This is a quality that is both weaknesses and strengths. It’s usually a good idea because I only talk about topics that move me personally. I am convinced that the power of a real debate lies in the language and honesty of the speaker.

 

 

 

My profession, my clients, the heroes

 

When I answer the question of what I do for what reason, I say: “I am a travel companion for heroes. Although my clients rarely consider themselves as such, even though they fulfill the criteria.”

No, I am not Gandalf and I don’t have a long white beard. You’ll find more details about me and my background in management, consulting and coaching in my profile. Let’s find out what I can do for you and your message. Where and how does my experience in marketing, psychology, and communication help you?

What effort and cost for the preparation of a conversation or negotiation are justified?

What Effort And Cost For The Preparation Of A Conversation Or Negotiation Are Justified?

For the sake of clarity: No legal advice!
blank

The effort to prepare a conversation or negotiation

 

If you expect something from a conversation, it pays off to prepare accordingly. With a good conversation, a lot can be achieved and investments are worthwhile. So far, so good. Which effort exactly is worthwhile?

How important is the conversation?

 

Not every conversation requires extensive preparation. However, some preparation is good for every conversation. What effort is recommended is a matter of importance, effort, opportunities, and risks. Investing requires thoughtful decisions. Why do more than necessary?

 

 

 

How about a good preparation for a conversation?

 

Conversations can have different goals; inform, inspire, clarify, … In a successful conversation, it is possible to mutually communicate the perspectives and options and to find a common solution. After a good conversation, the participants are happier than before.

Good communicators are ready to make their contribution to a successful conversation and create the conditions for it.

 

 

 

The effort for the preparation of conversations

 

Sometimes a short note is enough to prepare you, and sometimes it takes a lot of effort to take a closer look at the risks and opportunities. Sometimes even considerable investments in time and financial resources pay off.

Not every person has professional support or the financial means to do so. But carelessness is often the reason why good preparation is omitted. In order to limit the damage later, often great effort is required. Again, the rule applies: investments want to be evaluated in the ratio of cost to result.

Which effort is worthwhile for the preparation of a conversation is to be answered individually. However, if you expect something from a conversation, it is worth preparing.

Preparation of important conversations and negotiations

 

Communication can be very easy. But often it is not. Sometimes we say things and then later notice from the reaction of our conversation partners that they seem to have spoken to someone completely different. I didn't say that with the best will in the world. - Or did I say that after all?

More or less consciously, conversations are about convincing other people of something - be it a special offer, your personality, a perspective, or a necessity. If this doesn't happen fast enough and above all not exactly to the point and descriptively, the person we are talking to quickly loses interest, and we lose the hoped-for opportunity. — Conversation failed.

You can let me support you in the preparation of your conversations and negotiations (to be on the safe side: no legal advice!). Find out how you and your message are perceived (arguments, body language, language, voice, and much more). I will familiarize you with effective tools and communication strategies. Develop your psychological skills, learn to stay calm, act confidently, remain authentic, and finally convince.

As fascinating as narcissists may seem at first glance, they are in reality selfish and emotionally cold. Only their self-pity is boundless. Only the others make mistakes.

Make a trip to Berlin for coaching or training?

Make A Trip To Berlin For Coaching Or Training?

What are the benefits of traveling to Berlin? There are at least eight good reasons
Think Twice Before You Do A Media Interview

Come to Berlin

 

What are the benefits of a trip to Berlin for coaching and training with me? There are at least eight good reasons.

Which coaching and training format is best for you?

 

Options:

  • Individual training and coaching in Berlin
  • I’m traveling to you personally
  • By phone or internet with video support

 

 

 

Either way, we work face to face

 

Due to time constraints, my clients are increasingly using meetings via the Internet and video support. One-to-one, that’s a good choice. However, some issues and situations benefit from a personal meeting. At first glance, it may seem like a contradiction, but the journey itself helps to deal with a topic more intensively.

 

 

 

At least seven good reasons to come to Berlin

 

 

1. Weigh what’s most important to you

 

At first, mainly participants of my nationwide workshops came to Berlin to coach with me. Today, clients from all over the world visit me in Berlin.

Why? It’s often more of a concession; I know it from my participation in training. If I want certain coaching or training, if I prefer a coach or trainer, then I have to travel. The extra effort is more accepted than welcomed. It’s worth it to me. What about you?

 

 

 

2. Traveling provides a contribution

 

Traveling requires time and effort. Interestingly, I get a lot of feedback from my customers that the trip itself contributes something special. It’s time to pause, think, sort thoughts and…

 

 

 

3. Change of perspective

 

Most clients report that the new location has some advantages for them. The spatial distance to the usual working day and the workplace helps detach oneself from established ways of thinking and behaving. This makes it easier to explore and use new perspectives.

 

 

 

4. Inspiration

 

Each place provides different inspirations, suggestions, and insights. This is especially true in Berlin. I use these possibilities and connect them with the individual goals of my clients. Opposite my office is the Zoo Berlin with the Tiergarten, a huge park. Both have already provided a special framework for many processes.

The group training usually takes place near the Gedächtniskirche or the Friedrichstraße. You will find the inspiration that supports your goals.

 

 

 

5. Concentration instead of distraction

 

It may sound more comfortable to meet in your bureau. Truth is; something is always urgent and therefore someone interrupts the training and coaching sessions with a particularly urgent request. Even the possibility of an interruption reduces effectiveness. Especially when coaching and training in companies, interruptions are very likely. This is a pity because so much potential is wasted.

Let us work together to ensure the best possible conditions. Outside your office, you will be able to concentrate much better. When traveling to Berlin, you also have enough time for preparation and follow-up. This is an advantage for those who allow themselves to switch off their mobile phones.

 

 

 

6. Preparation

 

If you plan your appointments early enough, a preparation session over the phone or the Internet with video support is a good idea. We set the course and can both prepare optimally. In this way, you get the maximum benefit from your trip to Berlin.

 

 

 

7. Arrival and departure

 

Many roads lead to Berlin and not far from Berlin we have an airport (Berlin-Schönefeld). Many clients also come by train. Either way, the place where coachings and trainings often take place is next to the Gedächtniskirche near Bahnhof Zoologischer Garten with connections to Hauptbahnhof Berlin and the Airport Express for Schönefeld (BER).

Take a break from everyday work. When you arrive at my office, you are already prepared for coaching or training. And after the session, you will have time to think about your impressions and how they will support you. This is a good prerequisite for working together on your topic and putting thoughts and skills into practice.

 

 

 

8. The city of Berlin and the people

 

There are many more good reasons to come to Berlin.

 

 

 

9. …

Decision-making: Do it now! Here are 9 tips for better decision making.

Decision making: Do it now! Here are 9 tips for better decision making.

What might help? Tips for better decision making
Do It Now!

Better decision-making

 

Making decisions can be difficult. Your success depends on your ability to develop speed as a habit in both; decision-making and executing decisions. Here are a few tips for better decision-making.

Overview

A good plan violently executed right now is far better than a perfect plan executed next week.

George S. Patton

Speed

 

When you think about it, all business activity comes down to two simple things: Making decisions and executing decisions. Your success depends on your ability to develop speed as a habit in both. I believe that speed, like exercise and eating healthy, can be habitual.

 

 

 

Different requirements

 

I don’t say all decisions should be made quickly. Some decisions are more complicated or critical than others. It might be helpful for you sometimes to wait for more information. Some decisions can’t be easily reversed or would be too damaging if you choose poorly. Most importantly, some decisions don’t need to be made immediately.

Decision making is one of the most important ingredients of success, yet we are not taught this crucial life skill. With small decisions, a mistake is not serious. However, with a major life, career or business decision, the wrong choice can be devastating. A bad decision can cost dearly in terms of money, time or lost opportunity.

 

 

 

What holds us back?

 

We want to make the perfect decision that means we don’t lose out on any front. Truth is the life is not usually like that, and we often have to choose between competing values.

Sometimes we give some decisions much more important than they have. Often it doesn’t matter that much.

We want to have a cast-iron guarantee that it will all work out for the best. Unfortunately, life is fundamentally uncertain, and we can never be sure it will.

 

 

 

What might help? 9 Tips for better decision-making

 

 

1. Know the mechanisms

 

Understanding that the problem is the human condition, so we can never have everything we want or know in advance how things will work out.

 

 

 

2. Good is good

 

Aiming for good enough rather than perfect.

 

 

 

3. Know your values

 

Find out what values are at stake.

 

 

 

4. Explore the scenarios

 

Work out the likely consequences of each option.

 

 

 

5. How about your gut feeling?

 

Ask yourself what gut feelings are around and whether they are telling us something important or misleading us.

 

 

 

6. Have a plan

 

Have a plan. If we conclude what we should do, but are still leaning in the opposite direction to some extent, how can we help ourselves to stick to our decision?

 

 

 

7. Priorities

 

Don’t spend too much time on unimportant decisions. Luckily, most of the decisions we make are not irrevocable nor life-threatening. We can change our minds if it turns out that we were wrong.

 

 

 

8. Stay with your decision

 

It is usually better not to revisit a decision unless circumstances change. Once you’ve gathered the information you need, weigh the pros and cons and conclude. The more you ruminate, the greater the chance that you will second guess yourself.

Once a decision is irreversible, you better not dwell too much on whether it was the right thing to do or not. We will never know everything and can’t do anything about it now, so the time spent on this kind of postmortem would probably be better spent doing something else.

 

 

 

9. Get help

 

Discuss your decision-making with others to make up your mind. Professional help will support you in the best way.

Decision-making coaching

 

Decision coaching is a specialized type of coaching. A professional coach with experience in that field combines the skills and techniques obtained from coaching individuals and organizations together with a knowledge and understanding of decision-making principles, decision tools, and best practices. As a result, a decision coach can successfully guide clients through an important or difficult life, career, and business decisions.

I help clients become clear about their values and how they impact the decision. With coaching, I help my client set the criteria for a successful decision and develop and evaluate options. Together we organize the decision process into specific steps and I help my client work through each step avoiding common decision traps. I offer specific decision-making tools and resources to help my client analyze the issues involved, assess risk, evaluate available options and make a wise decision.

As a coach, I have to understand you, your values, long-term goals, wants, and needs. I have to see you as a real person and, at the same time, see you more objectively than you see yourself. I will help you to understand what you want out of your life. I will not decide for you. I act as a skilled guide, consultant, and adviser to help you arrive at your decision, but ultimately the decision should be and needs to be made by you.

Coaching for decisions

 

Decisions have to be made over and over again - small and large. Some are easy, some are difficult. We make many of these decisions without having to think much about them or even completely unconsciously, automatically. But now and then we come to the point where we encounter a decision where we pause, don't know what to do, don't see clearly. Often these are decisions of great importance that also have the ability to question important aspects of life that were previously considered given or untouchable. Such a situation can create pressure and even lead to paralysis, so that creative and constructive ways remain unconsidered.

Who sees clearly, can decide better and act purposefully. In order for this to succeed, it is necessary to ensure that the options are identified and, if necessary, increased and priorities clarified. Decision coaching helps to oversee the forest for the trees and to find the right focus. The best decision and creativity techniques can be used most effectively in a good mental state.

In order to make your decision easier, to be supported by me, I focus on transparency. On these pages you will find information about me (Karsten Noack) and the fees.

Do you have a mentor?

Do You Have A Mentor?

A mentor is a trusted counselor, a wise, loyal, and supportive guide, an adviser, or a coach.
Think Twice Before You Do A Media Interview

Mentoring in Berlin

 

Almost every successful leader had a mentor. What is important to keep in mind, what makes a good mentor? Learn how a mentor can support you.

What is a mentor?

 

A mentor is a trustworthy consultant, a clever, loyal and supportive companion, a consultant, trainer or coach. Ideally, a mentor is also a role model and confidant. He has gained relevant practical experience.

This is usually a kind of sponsorship between a young, promising executive (the mentee) and an experienced manager (the mentor). For this working relationship to work, there must be complete trust between the partners involved. Also, the mentee must be willing to accept suggestions and deal constructively with feedback. Mentors also point out risks and potentials if they want to promote their protégés. And do you also have a mentor?

 

 

 

Do you have a mentor?

 

You benefit from a mentor because he or she can provide you with the experience of many years within a short period. Mentees learn what the mentor has experienced and done and how it worked for him. This saves you detours, time and effort because you can learn from his mistakes and successes and do not have to make unnecessary mistakes.

 

Typical functions of a mentor:

  • He offers the mentee insights into an area.
  • Promotes the necessary skills.
  • He incorporates both elements of coaching and counseling.
  • Supports mentee development by sharing experiences, resources, and networks.
  • Encouragement to leave the comfort zone and develop further.
  • The mentor encourages one to think for oneself.
  • He provides constructive feedback.

 

That sounds too good to be true? Almost every successful personality had a mentor who played an important role.

 

 

 

Which success can be achieved all by itself?

 

Almost every successful executive can refer to a mentor who has played an important role. There are many examples of how important a mentor can be. The term “mentor” comes from The Odyssey. Odysseus asked his friend Mentor to watch over his son Telemachus while Odysseus was in the Trojan War. Mentorship existed long before Socrates cared for Plato, who cared for Aristotle, who cared for Alexander the Great.

I greatly appreciate the experienced support. If I hadn’t had mentors, I wouldn’t be here today. The guidance I have received from experienced men and women has made an enormous positive difference in my life. Intelligence is learning from experience and I don’t have to make every mistake myself. Others have encountered problems, made mistakes and learned from them.

Search for role models you can look up to and people who are interested in you. If we just take the time to ask them, they often like to share what they have learned.

In mentoring, the immediate supervisor is indirectly involved. Although she or he can make suggestions to the employee on how best to use the mentoring experience, the supervisor has no connection to the mentor, and they do not communicate at all during the mentoring relationship. This helps maintain the integrity of the mentoring relationship.

Mentoring programs have been popular for some time and differ from classical coaching.

 

 

 

The differences between mentoring and coaching

 

 

Coaching (and training)

 

Coaching and training are more task-oriented. The focus is on concrete topics such as more effective management, targeted and effective communication and strategic thinking. This requires an expert who can teach the coachee how to develop these skills.

A coach can work successfully with a coachee for a short time, perhaps only for a few sessions. Coaching lasts as long as necessary, depending on the purpose of the coaching relationship.

Business coaching aims to improve an individual’s performance in the workplace. The aim is either to improve existing skills or to acquire new skills. Once the coachee has successfully acquired the skills, the coach is no longer needed.

Coaching can be done on nearly any topic almost immediately. When a company tries to coach a large group of individuals, there is certainly a lot of design involved in determining the competence field, the expertise required and the assessment tools used, but this does not necessarily require a long lead time to implement the coaching program.

The superior of the coachee can be a critical partner in coaching. He or she often gives the coach feedback on areas where his or her employee needs coaching. The coach, on the other hand, does not reveal any details from the coaching.

 

 

 

 

Mentoring

 

Mentoring is more relationship-oriented. It aims to create a safe environment in which the mentor shares all the issues that affect his or her professional and personal success. Although specific learning goals or competencies can be used as a basis for building the relationship, the focus goes beyond these areas and includes things like work and life balance, self-confidence, self-awareness and how personal life affects the job.

Mentoring takes time to succeed. It takes time for both partners to learn from each other and create a climate of trust that creates an environment in which the mentee feels safe to share the real problems that affect his or her success. Successful mentoring relationships often last from nine months to one year.

The goal of mentoring is to support the individual not only for the current job but also for the future. This also distinguishes the role of the immediate superior from that of the mentor.

Mentoring requires a preparatory phase to determine the strategic purpose of mentoring, the form and focus of the relationship, collaboration, and specific components.

 

 

 

When to consider coaching and when mentoring?

 

What all types of coaching and mentoring have in common is that they provide a tool for analysis, reflection, and action that makes it possible to be successful in a field.

 

 

 

When to consider coaching

 

Criteria:

  • When it comes to the development of specific competences.
  • To learn how to deal with a new role.
  • When talented people want to work on a topic because they do not meet their expectations or those of the company.

 

Here you will find further examples of the application of coaching.

 

 

 

When to consider mentoring

 

Criteria:

  • When a company is seeking to develop its leaders or talent pool as part of succession planning
  • The long-term process to remove barriers that hinder success
  • Access to the network of the mentor is helpful

Presentation training in a group or rather a one-to-one training and coaching?

What is better, presentation training in the group or rather in private lessons?

Suggestions for your decision on the format of training or coaching
Presentation training in a group or rather a one-to-one training?

Presentation training as group or individual training?

 

Presentation skills training is offered in many formats. What is better, presentation training in the group or rather in private lessons? Here are suggestions for your decision on the format of training or coaching.

Overview

 

 

 

 

Tailor-made or off the peg?

 

You are unique and therefore our cooperation should be, too. The success factors for communication and public speaking – in terms of speech, appearance, and presentation – may be largely the same. But, you are one-of-a-kind. Your personality, experience, context, and purposes of speaking are unique. Group training follows a given structure, imparts the knowledge and skills relevant to most participants. Why should you devote to topics that have no or only a small advantage for you? One of my mentors told me: make the difference that makes the most interesting difference!

That’s why none of the training and coaching I do is the same. I always design them to suit the participants.

 

 

 

The first choice is usually individual training and coaching

 

What could be more intense than working directly with the coach or coach? Individual training and coaching allow you to work on exactly what is relevant for you. In the way that suits you best.

 

 

 

Advantages of individual training and coaching

 

 

1. In private

 

Discretion is for some people quite an issue that wants to be considered. Especially, people in responsible positions and with a high degree of public awareness prefer discretion. In a private setting, it is much easier to open up and to deal with feedback.

 

 

 

2. Specific goals

 

The further you have evolved, the more specific are your questions, your topics, your goals. Proven course plans give you indications of what might be of interest to you. But in the individual training and coaching, we concentrate on what has the desired benefit for you. You decide!

 

 

 

3. Personal strengths and potential

 

With your strengths, you have come to where you are today. It is therefore important to promote your strengths as well as to awaken your potential.

 

 

 

4. Own target groups

 

To convincingly present yourself and your message works only if it suits you and your audience. In individual training, we make sure that your communication and presentation style fits you and your target groups.

 

 

 

5. Intensity

 

You get full attention. Everything is focusing on you and your goals. Does that sound good?

 

 

 

6. Flexibility

 

You are much more flexible in terms of content and time in individual training. Duration and time intervals are determined based on your resources and recommendations. This leaves enough time to turn the insights into knowledge and skills. You decide how long it will take for you to do this.

 

 

7. Transfer

 

Individual training and coaching can help you unlock your true potential. Knowledge without execution does not get you across the finish line. One of the greatest challenges for many public speakers is the difference between having the knowledge accessible and learning, absorbing, applying and implementing that learning in a way that works for each unique individual. That is where coaching with me comes in.

 

 

 

Why do I offer group training at all?

 

I offer group training because many people want to learn in a group. A common reason is to get feedback from other attendees. From the coach’s point of view, however, the feedback from course participants is often not so helpful and even requires additional effort to correct it. Constructive feedback in 1:1 sessions is much more helpful.

 

 

 

Not sure yet, which format fits better your needs?

 

Do you want to talk with me about your goals and concerns? Then just give me a call or send me a message.

Just ask me personally

Lunch-Coaching in Berlin, when you appreciate additional perspectives

Lunch-Coaching in Berlin, when you appreciate additional perspectives

Never eat alone! Other places, more ideas!

Lunch-Coaching in Berlin

 

Information about Lunch-Coaching in Berlin. Lunch-Coaching with me is for you if you prefer a coaching session as soon as possible to prepare important conversations, presentations or a conversation partner for a decision.

Overview

And those who were seen dancing, were thought to be crazy, by those who could not hear the music.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Lunch-Coaching in Berlin

 

Lunch-Coaching is a unique opportunity to master a personal challenge in a private or business context. Lunch-Coaching offers an informal environment that allows you to look at different perspectives and alternatives. This can be helpful if there is an important and concrete reason or a spontaneous problem that needs to be solved, or if you want more ideas and additional resources. Some challenges are better mastered with a quick solution, while others require more time to mature through additional impulses. As your partner, I offer you effective, confidential and discreet support.

A meeting is usually booked as a short-term appointment during the lunch break. The meeting in the Kurfürstendamm area (City-West) typically lasts 60 minutes. The price is the same as for other sessions with me. Here are the details. Catering costs are not included.

 

 

 

The offer

 

My clients appreciate the special combination of my knowledge and skills of coaching with the problem-solving competence as an engineer, my experience in management consulting and management practice with a current psychological background. Many call me because they are looking forward to an important conversation or presentation.

 

 

 

Clients

 

My clients include private individuals, business people, executives, self-employed persons, freelancers, companies of different sizes and branches as well as organizations.

 

 

 

Where?

 

We meet at the corner of Budapester Straße and Nürnberger Straße. We have many restaurants and places with good coffee nearby. It is also a good starting point for a walk, armed with coffee.
