I am very satisfied with the results of my coaching and can highly recommend Cristian - he is a trustworthy, credible executive coach and sparring partner, who responds to individual needs so that you can benefit maximally as an executive.
Cristian Hofmann was my executive coach for 12 months. I came to Cristian through a recommendation from our HR and I am very happy to have worked with him and to have been able to work on myself.
It started with a 360 degree analysis and leadership assessment in my professional environment.
Cristian supported me in many ways to show me what changes are necessary and possible, which are always to be found through my own drive; combined with enlightening perspectives regarding organization, communication, psychology as well as equipment and tools for sustainable positive change of mind.
The process was completed by a further questioning of my stakeholders about experienced positive changes on my part in collaboration and leadership.
I very much appreciated the exchange with Cristian and still participate almost every day in varuious situations from these sustainable impulses. I have also already successfully recommended Cristian as an executive coach.
The team development was tremendous pleasure for us and we have reached a successful outcome with this team event. I am very confident that we as a team will benefit greatly from the experience gained, continue to learn and develop positively as a team. At this point, my personal and also a heartfelt thank you from the whole team to you for the excellent organization and the professional supervision and facilitation of the various sessions in this development process.
For myself, the Executive Coaching in Zürich was also a very insightful and intensive time in which I felt professionally coached and counselled by you at all times without exception. I highly appreciated this and will gladly recommend you as an executive coach.
The coaching with Cristian has changed me a lot - both, personally and my leadership. I started with the topic: What do I want to achieve and implement in my executive career and in life? This holistic view for my „Big 5 of Life“ was very important to me. I have gained clarity about my overall goals and priorities. I am now a decisive step further in this implementation. The professional accompaniment by an executive coach into a C-level role has paid off several times over. In a trusting collaboration, there were significant new insights for my leadership effectiveness. Excellent sharp questions and impulses have contributed optimally to reflection. Practical tools give additional orientation and possibilities, which can be implemented in my daily leadership role in a complex business transformation. My very big thank you and a clear recommendation for successful top leaders.

With regard to the personal coaching for A.H., this was the ideal form to address specific questions around effective communication and self-confidence. In a training group, it would not have been possible to have these personal questions discussed openly and addressed them in a such targeted way. This has really helped A.H. to make a step forward and to develop her in a positive way - and also for our collaboration. Having your resource and expertise to do this was certainly very helpful. I and A.H. appreciated very much having this possibility and found it very beneficial. Thank you Cristian for the great support!
