Happiness is the new productivity

– It’s not a trend, it’s reality!

Yes, it is a bold statement but it covers my integral approach to real-world coaching and training.

I focus on guiding companies and their employees to be more team-oriented while also developing a growth mindset and culture, instead of staying stuck in methods that don’t work anymore.

I help companies transform complacent employees into high performing teams for greater productivity, higher retention, and an increased bottom line.

And above all else, at my core, I’m a connector. I support multicultural teams working locally and globally, and I’m deeply passionate about who the person is behind the function. I help teams accomplish so much more just by working off of each other’s strengths so they can become more visible and indispensable in your organization.

So, are you still looking for a more effective coaching or training program with a unique multicultural perspective? Take a look at my various packages and let’s talk about a customized version for your organization.

SERVICES

Too many organizations are focused on the wrong areas on a daily basis while placing the more important issues on the back burner, much to their detriment.

Your teams are the lifeblood of your company, so it’s critical to have all elements operating in place.

My comprehensive coaching and training programs help you shine a spotlight on these trouble spots and guide you and your teams to place an emphasis on improving them.

Your organization will benefit from the custom-tailored programs that will resolve your organization’s unique challenges.

Coaching

Find the invisible potential in every team member | Use team diversity to your advantage | Rekindle employee talent

Issues are placed in the proper perspective and give your team members a refreshing mindset, new ideas to explore, and new solutions to implement with which to approach your company’s objectives.

I do this by encouraging personal empowerment and skill development, rekindling individual talent and thirst for excellence, and guiding them to reach their full potential. All centered around the 3 As: Agility, Accountability, and Adaptability.

Training

Be ready for each aspect of communication in global and cross-cultural business | Immerse into a new language and culture | Boost your productivity

Having a workforce that includes both native German speakers and Expats from around the world can present new language and communication challenges for your organization, which can significantly impact productivity.

I show you how to create the ability to weave cultural diversity and customs sensitivity into your business model which is paramount to your success. It can be implemented easily and with very little disruption in the day-to-day operations.

Hello! I’m Violetta

I’m Violetta Krok and I’m a connector. As a professional development coach and trainer for over a decade, I have a unique ability to guide expats and German team members within forward thinking organizations to bridge communication gaps between local and global team members.

I am able to pinpoint the weak links in your organization and give you real world strategies to optimize your team members’ strengths and emphasize each person’s uniqueness, all in a concerted effort to embrace change, reduce costly turnover, and spark productivity and motivation.

Through both individual and team coaching and training with a unique multicultural perspective, it is exciting to see my clients grow and thrive where they were once frustrated and stuck in outdated paradigms and processes.

I have an innate ability to help my clients like their job again, gain a more positive attitude and feel better about what they do because their strengths have moved to the forefront, where they were meant to be.

It is so rewarding to see sparks ignited again. Every day I see the people I work with realize their full potential, resulting in organizations enjoying increased communication, productivity and retention after my work is completed.

Senior Scientist - Pharmaceutical Industry - Germany

"I have been taking language training with Violetta for one and a half years now.
What makes it so amazing is the way she is able to share her knowledge, embracing her passion for her work while teaching a language and culture. And not only with everyday life topics we are challenged with while getting integrated in a new country and culture but with added interesting work-related skills. A full package! Yes, there are a lot of professionals in this area, but only a few can evolve us in a way that brings us to learn more than a language, but also makes us discover matters which we can bring for our entire professional and personal life. More than grateful! "
