Barbara WladarzGeneral Manager Central Europe, Dematic
Working with Olaf is inspiring. He is one of the few coaches whom you can develop a program in half a day; that fits to set the change mark for an entire organization. He is extremely quick to get to the major issues in an organization and is able to transform this into a workshop that differentiates the thinking of invited members. Workshop member describe him as a sharp and hitting the nail on the head type of coach. He differentiates himself by thinking in business terms too. Working with Olaf gives you all times to think something after about an experience you might not want to miss.
Mathilde BerrySenior Manager, PricewaterhouseCoopers AG (PwC)
I've worked on a few intensive sessions with Olaf Hinz in the past few months and can testify that it was a worthwhile experience on my leadership journey. I came out more confident of my unique strengths and identified how to make the most of them professionally and personally. Thank you, Olaf, for piloting the way in uncharted waters. I felt well accompanied on that journey and can now sail more confidently by myself.
