Berthold Porath, CEO of Dornier Museum

"I've done many seminars in the past and not all of those have been great, so I was quite sceptical at the beginning of this one ! As the seminar progressed, my enthusiasm grew and I started really enjoying it. It turned out to be an extraordinarily interesting, brilliant seminar, during which I learned new things and refreshed existing knowledge !" MG

Schimmerl Kurt, CEO, Schwöller

"Many thanks for this amazing, really great seminar. I am ecstatic!!!" MG

Daniela Niederwolfsgruber, STOCK resort, assistance CEO

Manfred Waldauf, CFO, Prolicht

"This was the best thing happening to me in my life!  Honoring, appreciative, exciting and giving me many different realizations.  These realizations I will be able to make use of,  for the rest of my days,  - professionally as well as in my private life. For the time spent on this seminar,  I have since been rewarding many times over." MG

Andreas Moreau, Entrepreneur, Moreau Fashion and Sports

"Fact: Every LeadingX seminar is a lot more than just a seminar!!!" MG

Elisabeth Rendl, Head of HR, Bründl Sport

"From all colleagues -positive feedback.  Everyone - newly motivated. The active involvement of the superiors as well as the practical relevance, were imperative.  What's essential is that these two days of training prove to be a success, even in concrete numbers.  As of February 23rd, we have already won more new customers that in the entire previous year. (and at the end of the same year,  the number of new customers more than quadrupled, in comparison to the previous year!) " MG

Karl Frenzel, head of division, Prokurist, Würth

"Once again I'm exited to see with how much 'ease' and yet with  what intense 'drive' your seminars take place. LeadingX- seminars work like the cogwheels of a clock." MG

Walter Berger, sales director, Roto

"No other seminar has conveyed its content in such extremely interesting and exciting form. Despite its intensity, I felt like I was on vacation. I realized with increased clarity, that the basis for every success depends on one's own attitude, as well as our own reactions." MG

Alexander Foki, sales director, WO&WO

"I'm always pleased to hear the extremely positive feedback about your seminar. The actual seminar starts when we put the content of the seminar into daily practice, and is tangible in our communication as well as our actions.

Dietmar Gstrein, Board of Directors, Tyrol Equity, Konstant

"I've attended many seminars in the past and actually I had no desire to take part of another: too theoretical, boring, too little practical use.  But since I took part of LeadingX seminars, I've learned of  completely different kind of development impulses: full of energy, practice-orientated and above all, of lasting usefulness!  My colleagues  shared the same experience.  Before the first seminar they felt skepticism, generally questioned the general use of the seminar. Whereas after the seminar, their insights were anchored, practically implemented, with their Team spirit reignited. Please let's have more of it!" MG

Birgit Zenkl, Head of Supply Chain Management, Roche

"This personality development seminar was probably the most coherent and dramatically best structured seminar that I have ever been part of!  Even my colleagues, who normally are most resistent to advice and adverse towards seminars, were enthusiastic about it.  Also top marks in terms of value for money. Markus Gruber is an ideal workshop leader for us:  he is authentic and practices what he teaches, and knows how to captivate the participants in his inimitable, unique way."

Hubert Schaller, Board of Directors, Goldhofer

"Wow!  The structure and content of  the LeadingX seminars always has been and still is fascinating for me.
