The Self-Developers

The phi­lo­so­phy and prac­tice of The Self-Deve­lo­per is a con­cept from the Ger­man-spea­king busi­ness world that empowers peo­ple to rea­lise their full poten­tial and achieve grea­ter satis­fac­tion in life. This self-lea­der­ship tool has been deve­lo­ped over the last 50 years by renow­ned Ger­man psy­cho­lo­gist Jens Corssen and taken inter­na­tio­nally in 2013 by his busi­ness part­ner and col­le­ague, native Eng­lish spea­ker Andrew Bannon in the form of key­notes and semi­nars.

The inspi­ra­tio­nal mes­sa­ges have reso­na­ted with many medium-sized and DAX-lis­ted com­pany audi­en­ces across the globe. Given our expe­ri­ence in also deli­ve­ring con­tent vir­tually, it has become even easier for com­pa­nies based in Ger­many to estab­lish The Self-Deve­lo­per as part of their glo­bal cor­po­rate culture.


The Four Tools of The Self-Developer

In the age of trans­for­ma­tion, it is par­ti­cu­larly important to let go of out­da­ted solu­ti­ons and face uncer­tainty and chal­lenges dyna­mi­cally and crea­tively with a new mind­set. In our series of in-house events, par­ti­ci­pants learn how to achieve this with the help of the four tools of the Self-Developer:


I am the wit­ness and cost accoun­tant of my thoughts and behaviour.

Beco­ming aware of your own thought pat­terns is the abso­lute pre­re­qui­site for per­so­nal growth and bene­fi­cial change. Once you learn how to coach yours­elf on the rol­ler­co­as­ter of life, you find signi­fi­cantly more satis­fac­tion and success.


I am 100% respon­si­ble for my expe­ri­en­ces and actions.

When you take full respon­si­bi­lity for your expe­ri­en­ces and actions, you increase your self-empower­ment and the­r­e­fore the chance to initiate the neces­sary chan­ges. How you deal with the cir­cum­s­tances of life is your own free decision.


I stick to my goals and honour my commitments.

Peo­ple who pur­sue their goal with pas­sion and believe in them­sel­ves see obs­ta­cles or defeats as mere sto­po­vers on the way to their goal. The requi­red self-esteem for this is built up con­sis­t­ently by con­cen­t­ra­ting on the so-cal­led “inner game” – and win­ning it.


I am wil­ling to accept dis­com­fort in order to achieve my goals.

The avo­id­ance of dis­com­fort and pain is a com­mon cause of per­so­nal or pro­fes­sio­nal issues. The­r­e­fore, if you want to get more out of life, you first have to give up cer­tain habi­tual behaviours.

Trust on many levels


As expe­ri­en­ced spea­k­ers, semi­nar lea­ders and coa­ches, Jens Corssen and Andrew Bannon enjoy the trust of cross-sec­tor com­pa­nies – from medium-sized busi­nesses to major inter­na­tio­nal corporations.
