My experience as an entrepreneur, as a consultant and facilitator of holistic organizational development in medium-sized and large companies is the prerequisite for me to provide you, the New Leaders, with contemporary and high-quality courses from the best consultants, trainers and coaches through this academy.”

Franziska Gottschalk

“As a consultant and organizational developer in change and transformation processes, I believe in the future viability of collaborations – whether in business or in social institutions. Through my diverse experiences in working together with people in a wide variety of teams and organi-zations, I consciously focus my work on collaboration and human (self-)leadership.
8+ years of experience in various agile and self-organized frameworks as an Agile Coach, Release Train Engineer (SAFe) and Scrum Master.
15+ years of experience as a coach, consultant, trainer, facilitator, conflict resolver, and mentor in change and transformation processes.
20+ years of leadership experience in healthcare, IT, telecommunications and human resources.”


Nikolaus Herbert

Complex products in market segments with high competitive pressure have been my passion as a sales and product trainer for over 15 years.

I gained my expertise primarily while setting up and managing two sales training departments in the field of online marketing for SMEs, as a SaaS trainer for Google, in medical technology and in IT. The common thread of my trainings with sales people, communicators and their managers is the complete practical orientation.

In e-learning, too, I make complex issues understandable: I translate abstract concepts that require explanation into comprehensible, concretely applicable and activating training experiences.”

With his approach of appreciative leadership, he ensures that executives find more freedom and time for themselves, the organization achieves more profit and innovation, and that the satisfaction of work is sustainably strengthened.
