Jörg’s 4 pillars of development and growth

Learning by doing

Only by doing things, you can master them. With his own extensive experience in business, consulting and academia, while also immersing himself into art and music, Jörg is able to guide you through the process of unfolding growth.

By reading

Never underestimate theoretical knowledge. As an academic researcher and professor, Jörg also has the theoretical business background and the hard industrial skills to provide valuable input when exploring talents and fostering growth.

By feedback

Feedback is the constant essential on the way to reaching your personal or organizational peak. Only through feedback, rethinking our actions and constructive criticism we can learn and transform into better versions of ourselves.

By reflecting

Purpose-oriented growth and self-exploration requires frequent reflection. Jörg himself has long been practising different techniques of self-reflection. It does not matter how we reflect, but it matters that we do in order to grow.

“Talents win games, but teams win championships.” – Michael Jordan

Sometimes it might need a completely different approach and spark from the outside. As a musician himself, Jörg is well connected with people from the artistic and creative scene who can bring in unconventional but smart ideas.


Academics have a passion to provide new insights and show us interesting correlations or patterns which we can build upon. Their curiosity and their inner drive exploring the „Why“ makes them highly valuable for our network.
