DAS CORSSEN-SEMINAR

In his book, renow­ned coach Jens Corssen pres­ents the cri­te­ria for suc­cessful “inner coa­ching” – an enga­ging and sti­mu­la­ting read for all those who want to ride the rol­ler­co­as­ter of life with joy and suc­cess. Las­ting suc­cess – espe­ci­ally in times of rapid change – is based on making cru­cial chan­ges to your way of thin­king first and, con­se­quently, taking respon­si­bi­lity for your actions! That is the core mes­sage that emana­tes from this book. 

To be suc­cessful as a Self-Deve­lo­per it means win­ning the inner game, moving from kno­wing to wan­ting and from wan­ting to doing. Accor­din­gly, a con­tem­po­rary defi­ni­tion of “suc­cess” cen­tres on attai­ning a posi­tive atti­tude towards life and deve­lo­ping your per­so­na­lity. Both fac­tors are indis­pensable to reach your goals.

Die vier Werk­zeuge für ein freud­vol­les Leben

by Jens Corssen and Ste­pha­nie Ehrenschwendner

“Life is a rol­ler coas­ter,” says Jens Corssen, psy­cho­lo­gist and best­sel­ling aut­hor. “When you are self-empowered, you enjoy the ride to the top with all your sen­ses. And on the way down, you make sure you stay in good spi­rits.” The renow­ned coach for mana­gers and top ath­le­tes has a simple solu­tion for how to achieve this: our atti­tude towards life, other peo­ple and our­sel­ves is a super­power that ensu­res we feel good and are suc­cessful both in busi­ness and in our pri­vate life. What’s more, what we pre­viously tried to force hap­pens as if of its own accord.

In this inno­va­tive book, the “Gra­phic Coach”, Jens Corssen sum­ma­ri­ses the essence of the “Self-Deve­lo­per”, the result of his more than 50 years of work as a coun­sellor. It is a poin­tedly illus­tra­ted epi­so­dic story that has a self-coa­ching effect. Using the prot­ago­nists as examp­les, the rea­der expe­ri­en­ces first-hand how to deve­lop super­powers to free ones­elf from misery.

“Das Corssen-Prin­zip” is many books in one: an inspi­ring story about four peo­ple strugg­ling with life’s hurd­les; coa­ching that can be expe­ri­en­ced in text and images; and a playful self-help pro­gramme that leads peo­ple from fee­ling power­less­ness to self-empowered. An enter­tai­ning and at the same time enligh­tening read.

Gemein­sam gewin­nen lernen

by Jens Corssen, Ste­fan Grö­ner and Ste­pha­nie Ehrenschwendner

Team buil­ding is more important than ever. Jens Corssen, Germany’s most sought-after coach for per­so­nal deve­lo­p­ment and goal achie­ve­ment and his coa­ching part­ner Ste­fan Grö­ner show in their latest psy­cho­lo­gi­cal non-fic­tion book how the Self-Deve­lo­per beco­mes a suc­cessful Team-Deve­lo­per – essen­tial rea­ding for mana­gers, team lea­ders and trainers.

As a Team Deve­lo­per, a good supe­rior not only sup­ports his or her employees pro­fes­sio­nally, but is also an atten­tive rela­ti­onship mana­ger. They give ori­en­ta­tion and con­vey trust to their employees and encou­rage them to tackle the chal­lenges in a world that is no lon­ger pre­dic­ta­ble with dedi­ca­tion and passion.

Tog­e­ther with his coa­ching part­ner Ste­fan Grö­ner, renow­ned busi­ness coach Jens Corssen has deve­lo­ped spe­ci­fic team roles based on the phi­lo­so­phy and prac­tice of the Self-Deve­lo­per that illus­trate the inno­va­tive lea­der­ship style of the Team Deve­lo­per. The two expe­ri­en­ced pro­fes­sio­nals con­vin­cin­gly con­vey how mana­gers, team lea­ders and trai­ners can use a moti­vat­ing atti­tude to turn a group of indi­vi­dual per­so­na­li­ties into an enthu­si­a­stic, self-con­fi­dent and suc­cessful team using new types of lea­der­ship tools.

Jens Corssen, gra­duate psy­cho­lo­gist and, accor­ding to Mana­ger Maga­zin, the “guru of Ger­man top mana­gers”, is one of the most suc­cessful coa­ches for goal achie­ve­ment. His trade­mark is the Self-Deve­lo­per® phi­lo­so­phy and prac­tice he deve­lo­ped. Chris­tiane Tramitz, who holds a doc­to­rate in beha­viou­ral sci­ence, has been stu­dy­ing the bio­lo­gi­cal basis of human beha­viour for more than twenty years. In their book, the aut­hors pre­sent their expe­ri­en­ces and fin­dings from deca­des of coun­sel­ling prac­tice and sci­en­ti­fic rese­arch work.

Jens Corssen and Chris­tiane Tramitz show ways to achieve sta­ble, suc­cessful and respectful rela­ti­onships. The focus is not only on rela­ti­onships bet­ween hus­band and wife, but also on rela­ti­onships bet­ween par­ents and child­ren, rela­ti­onships within the family, bet­ween boss and sub­or­di­nate, and rela­ti­onships bet­ween col­le­agues. All stages of a rela­ti­onship are exami­ned in a nar­ra­tive and ton­gue-in-cheek man­ner, and con­crete methods for impro­ving one’s own rela­ti­onship skills are presented.

Warum das größte aller Gefühle in Wahr­heit eine Hal­tung ist

by Jens Corssen and Ste­pha­nie Ehrenschwendner

We are all united by the lon­ging to be one, as the brain makes us believe in the into­xi­ca­tion of being in love. But the respon­si­bi­lity for joy of life and con­nec­ted­ness can­not be dele­ga­ted to a part­ner. Love is a ques­tion of inner atti­tude, say Jens Corssen and Ste­pha­nie Ehren­schwend­ner, and show how to bring this con­scious, adult form of love to life: 

The pro­cess of trans­for­ma­tion beg­ins when we affirm life and remain in an uplifted mood – even in pha­ses of sing­le­ness or rela­ti­onship con­flicts. It con­ti­nues when we deve­lop our uni­que­ness in all its facets. By releasing our­sel­ves from obs­truc­tive pat­terns of thin­king and beha­viour, we can ori­ent our­sel­ves towards a suc­cessful tog­e­ther­ness. Then true con­nec­ted­ness can grow.
