MARKO GRETZSCHEL

Your Consultant and Coach

Founder & CEO

As a Graduate Engineer in Transportation, I always seek improvements. Starting my career in the engineering departments I soon realized that technical improvements are only viable when all stakeholders are involved in the change process.

I managed to motivate teams to actively drive progress. In leading positions in global companies like Mercedes-Benz and SKF Lubrication Systems, I effectively applied my skills and knowledge about communication and cooperation to diverse teams around the world.

Working in a wide range of managing positions I learned to understand people: It is crucial for me to communicate at eye level with anybody, from company presidents to junior staff! The resulting level of trust makes every change process smooth and successful.

Disruption can both be frightening and exhilarating. By taking care of yourself and your people you will achieve the best results.

This is what I did when I became a consultant to learn even more about human beings.

Now I mentor people in challenging business situations. I train clients in leading projects and establishing the agile methodology. I combine years-long practice with my solid theoretical foundation.
