Global interconnectedness is more crucial than ever for your company’s growth.

It is imperative that your workforce is equipped with optimal language and communication skills as well as a deep appreciation for cultural diversity.

When your organization possesses the ability to weave cultural diversity and customs sensitivity into your business model, you can unlock new heights of success in this new, more challenging landscape. You can attain measurable results in the form of increased productivity and employee retention.

Imagine the competitive edge when your team members are enjoying newly discovered abilities that allow them to confidently showcase their intercultural strengths while communicating with clarity and style.

That’s where I come in. I use a powerful yet practical approach to my programs that keeps attendees engaged, with vital information retained and implemented long after the training is completed.

What Clients Are Saying

"I was pleased to get to know Violetta Krok in a difficult team coaching setup as well as in personal coaching. What makes Violetta stand out for me is that she can skillfully read between the lines and make the right comments, which in turn allow you to come to the crucial questions yourself.

In a disjointed team made up of alpha males, she managed to skillfully take on emotional situations, de-escalate them and turn the emotions into positive results.

She has a good instinct, that at first glance have nothing to do with the actual topic. At second glance, however, they are partly responsible for the current situation.

What is also significant for me is the experience she brings to the table and how quickly she manages to familiarize herself with topics that were initially completely foreign to her."

Chairman of the Works Council – Pharmaceutical Industry - Germany

"Violetta is one of a kind. She certainly can help any expat learn and master the German language. But what really sets her apart, is her decade-long coaching experience ranging from pharma industry to public sector. She is kind, honest and empowering. She is also tough, unapologetic and accountable. You want her in your corner for sure, and I can say that after 4 years of continuous coaching, I will sorely miss our weekly reality checks!"

"I suddenly realized what impact my behavior and my thoughts had on myself and my surroundings. We were given tools that brought calmness to the way I think, feel and act. I have never experienced such team work. The time is ripe - and so am I - for new things, new thoughts and new emotions. The coaching helped me to let go. I would recommend coaching to everybody who faces life changes, who has to change directions. The coaching results can be felt and seen.

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! "
