Find out from the journey these managers took how you can increase your team’s productivity by nearly 50%, without costly investments or complex re-organizations.


The world is changing in an unprecedented way, re-writing the rules of work, and changing the way teams collaborate and leaders communicate.

Many believe when people work remotely, they should just work as usual; but they ignore that the way of working remotely in the virtual environment requires different skills from a leader. And there are managers who hope that things will go back to normal, and their people will work in offices again find themselves exposed, challenged and left behind.

Virtual Presenter Multiple Cover


Any business professional in this digital world has noticed that there is an overflow of information and a vast amount of fake news. The multiple media feeds, frequent chats and mails allows for even less time to get attention to share an important message.
Many believe, therefore, that to be able to make an impact on an audience with a presentation they’d better wait until they can get their people together before they can do an important presentation.

But today’s speed of business does not allow anyone to wait; delaying actions or decisions, or doing poor online presentations that don’t have their expected impact on an audience can be costly. This is especially critical when presenting to stake holders, when selling to customers, and other decision-makers that need influencing. Impacting an audience requires quite a different set of skills from sitting behind your desk and sharing some slides.

The Virtual Presenter:

Learn how you can easily create, present, impact, and share your knowledge in a virtual environment effectively. Discover how to do professional presentations from the back of your desk, at home. Present as if you were in the room with the people without investing heavily extra time, people or money in complicated systems, software, or services.
Get to know ITS FOUR SIDES OF THE VIRTUAL PRESENTER that will guide you in your self-development in becoming a virtual presenter who makes an impact online.

This book is available as printed book, ebook, and audio-book through many sources, like Amazon, Apple, BookBeat, or StoryTel.

Young professionals who start in their first role as a leader or manager often face a unique set of challenges as they shift into positions of greater responsibility. What the new leaders don’t recognize is that their team needs someone in the role as a leader. Someone with skills to lead and not someone with a personality or someone who is always the best.

Unfortunately, many corporate training programs are either suited for top management roles or they offer personal development.  Rarely does a program address the specific skill sets that these new leaders need to be able to make the shift from a successful and experienced specialist to becoming a professional leader.

Making new leaders aware of the risks and challenges of their role and which skills and behaviours makes them a good leader drastically improves their self-confidence and increases the chances of their people teams to be successful.

The Leader’s Shift:

Get to know what makes leaders shift their perspective and role successful and how you can increase your awareness, unlearn familiar habits, and learn new leadership skills. Make a successful Shift yourself and change your focus from the Problems to the People.

Action Based Learning

Trainers are leaders. Training always includes leading a group of people to experience a practical part.  Theme Centric Interaction, or TZI, was developed by Ruth Cohn under the guideline, you cannot convince anybody, but you can create an atmosphere so that people can listen.

TZI combines anthropological assumptions with a theory and methodology of leadership and management. This allows for a better analysis, planning, control, and design of dynamic processes in groups, teams, companies, and organizations. The result is a results-oriented, goal-directed approach to tasks in which all participants also learn from their interactions with each other.
