TETA is a guided exploration of one’s inner-self with benefits that carry over not just to the business world but to one’s personal life as well.  An invaluable experience for managers and executives . . . it is providing great support for the realization of our ultimate objective of becoming a transformational leadership company.” John Christman, President.


Incredibly good! Top trainer, Top workshop. Neil has a fantastic way to deliver and transfer knowledge with humor and depth. Can’t imagine a better trainer. This training deserves unconditional recommendation. Super interesting and well constructed workshop. Motivating, inspiring, meaningful to us and highly enjoyable. Terrific. Looking forward to a continuation of this program.
Collective comments from the group of Sept. 2015


“Mr. Schwalb’s techniques in teaching leadership, innovation and change are superb.  He is an expert at understanding the complexities of corporate culture and the personalities which drive, and at times, hamper the ultimate success of a business or academic enterprise.  Uli is a “coach” in the true sense of the word:  patient, inventive and seasoned.  Spending a training session with Uli and his team is well worth the effort and energy.  I recommend the investment.”
   Joel Franklin, Attorney, Professor of Law, Visiting Lecturer Stanford University


“Understanding is just a stepping stone, action is the real target. This is very characteristic of Matthias Dehne. His training is full of positive energy that rubs off on yourself and the group. In a very short space of time Matthias is able to (further) boost your confidence by setting clear explanations, exercises and reflection time. A real recommendation for managers, but also for new members of staff.”
Brian Kragtwijk, Sales & Project Manager After Sales


“What makes the collaboration with IAK truly special is the combination of intelligent creative solutions and meticulously detailed execution. By preparing the sessions together we have managed to truly hit the target that I had in mind beforehand. Above all, the (IAK) trainers are able to inspire our teams and employees to take on board new ways of seeing things.”
