“I met Thomas Orths first in 2002 in our German head office. Since more than a decade he has worked closely with our company, supporting the management levels of our company primarily in Germany, Luxembourg and Brussels.
He also supported our sales units in Germany, Italy and Nordic with topics such as “Emotional Intelligence for Sales success” as well as the manufacturing teams in all our 6 German plants and our plant in Luxembourg.
We made great use of a variety of his 2-day soft skills programs such as Effective Communication, Presenting with Impact, Self-&Time Management, Stress Management to name a few. Especially in Luxembourg the learning teams were culturally very diverse and Thomas managed to successfully engage all participants and created very good feedback from the sessions – consistently over the years. His humor, dynamic style, use of strong & related metaphors and practical approach is appreciated a lot.
Regarding Leadership and Management development Thomas was deeply involved in one of our major EMEA roll outs around “Performance Coaching for Managers” where he worked with the board level and the next 3 levels down our organization, in D-A-CH and Benelux. The intensive Workshops including video feedback were followed by Action Learning sets, business related peer coaching. Thomas engaged with 4 levels and across many functions in mixed groups. His delivery was well received by all participants, even though this was a mandatory program.
In recent years we used Thomas also frequently for team building processes, where he works with existing team, that often are under high demand. His ability to align the team, enable them to resolve conflicts and challenge all members to step up is interesting to watch. I have been myself in several sessions and was really satisfied with the outcome!”
