Coaching for the preparation of conversations and negotiations

Coaching to prepare for meetings and negotiations


You’ll find here articles and professional coaching on how to systematically prepare for important conversations and negotiations, including body language. When the outcome of the conversation has consequences, professional support is a valuable asset. You and your offer will be more convincing.


So let us begin anew – remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.

Prepare for meetings and negotiations​


Do you need to explain complex issues succinctly? Are you facing difficult negotiations with customers who are always unhappy and negative? Do you keep asking your boss for a raise without success? Do you need to make clear statements to your employees, but don’t want to strain the working atmosphere? Are you having trouble sleeping because linguistics and psychology aren’t your hobbies, but so much depends on the next conversation that every word counts?




Everywhere is Babylon …


Unfortunately, communication is not always easy. Sometimes we say something and then suddenly realize that what we said was interpreted quite differently by the person we were talking to.

This usually happens in conversations where we are trying to convince other people of something – be it a special offer, or ourselves, selling a point of view, or some kind of necessity. But if we don’t get to the point quickly and accurately, the other person quickly loses interest, and the desired attention and opportunity to persuade fades. The conversation has failed and you have missed the opportunity to persuade!




Let’s talk about it! – What I offer


To ensure that your conversations are a success, I help you to …

  • … familiarize yourself with effective communication strategies beyond the textbook
  • … expand your psychological knowledge and skills
  • … benefit from practical experience instead of purely theoretical advice
  • … deal with even the most difficult people in negotiations
  • … create a relaxed atmosphere in which many things become easier
  • … remain calm, self-confident, authentic, and convincing

… so you don’t need any magic tricks up your sleeve. Then your conversations will be more successful!

For those who want to be on the safe side and play fair, the best thing is to learn the art of speaking and communicating in all its aspects. To those people, I recommend Communication skills training and Presentation Skills I-IV as private lessons.


In the right tone of voice you can say anything, in the wrong one, you cannot.

Your travel companion


For many years I have been helping people to present themselves and their message convincingly. Sometimes it’s about speeches and presentations, sometimes it’s about a conversation. As part of the preparation for important conversations, I pass on what is particularly important. You learn to be fully present and thus have full access to your skills, your knowledge, and the bigger picture. I help you so that your message is heard and understood. Benefit from my experience in marketing, psychology and communication science.

Best presentation skills trainer I’ve ever met. Karsten gave me the right feedback to improve my presentation and didn’t skimp on any important detail. I particularly appreciate how he took the time to explore my content and take the audience’s place to make sure every word hits the mark. He shares his knowledge and his experiences in the corporate world very generously. Karsten is a very stimulating and, when necessary, very calming personality. He really wants the best for his clients and I think he is the best in his field.
