  • Language concerns us all. It is important for our interpersonal exchange and for passing on information. However, language can be and is much more than that. By consciously using your language, you promote your entrepreneurial success and an appreciative corporate culture. Hence, the language of a company is always the language of its economic success.
  • In this course, you will learn how to use language for your personal and entrepreneurial success using examples of everyday situations in professional as well as private life. Because as the saying goes "your ‚I can' is more important than your IQ".
  • This focus on the benefits of a situation, expressed by a language of possibilities, as well as a certain set of attitudes and habits is the common denominator of highly successful and internationally acclaimed leaders in all fields, be it business, politics, sports, culture, etc.
  • In times of widespread complexity, revolutionary transformation, and high uncertainty it takes working on yourself, on your inner core. The smartest leaders in the world focus inward in order to harness possibilities, discover new ways to - personal as well as professional - success, and find meaning and purpose in their lives.
