I’ve been leading many international teams as a manager for the past 20 years. Excellent results in a challenging environment could only be achieved with the best possible teamwork. It can often take years for the members of a team to grow together and work together as a entirety to achieve maximum performance. The teams which have been to Winning adjusted top performances much earlier and more intense. The energy, the fun and the deep friendships that have become established have made working in a team a pleasure and a lasting experience. Thank you Mike to you and your great colleagues!

If you have a talented team and motivation, mind set  and execution are important success factors in achieving your goals that you want to strengthen and develop, then winning training is a profitable investment. And if you seek for lasting positiv impact, then Winning training  will take your talents to the next level. If you’re looking for a combination of empowerment and dynamic team development, you’re in the right place at Winning.

I had a lot of personality trainings but the winning training “The Champions Approach to Success” was the best. It was already more than 20 years ago, but this was the training that characterised  and influenced me the most positively.

It is inspiring to see my employees “shining” after a Winning training.  The trainings are crucial for the successful turnaround in a company!

In various functions I was allowed to be accompanied by Mike & his team. For a long time, we have been united by a personal friendship that works very well. Almost all coaches know and preach that anything is possible if the mindset is right. To create the knowledge and experience of their own strengths, nobody has ever achieved this in my environment so consequently,  authentically, calmly and sustainably for all participants (all!). Mike encourages and positively turns our heads. A new mindset nourishes the belief that everything is possible. Winning creates winners!

The Winning seminar series has proven to be one of the best investments for both employees and the entire company. An important “tool” in the context of organizational development and employee loyalty to the company.

Mike and his team are pure motivation, and the exercises are a lot of fun too.  I highly recommend ‘Winning’ to everyone!

The best seminar in 27 years!

The beginning of my management career more than 22 years ago was marked by many soft-skill trainings, as my former employer attached great importance to solid training combined with learning-by-doing. In this context, for me, the “physical and mental fitness” winning workout with Mike and his team was the most efficient and best workout I’ve ever attended. In retrospect, I would even say that this laid an essential foundation for my personality development in the following years. With these positive experiences, I also planned Winning training modules with my Slovak team to sharpen their team spirit and set it up for peak performance as some extraordinary challenges were pending. I was very impressed with how noticeable changes in group dynamics occurred with every single module and that the whole team took important steps towards the High Performance Team. Many thanks to Mike and the whole Winning Team !!
