The Grundl
Leadership Institute

Heart and Soul

We strongly believe in the principle of free will, which varies from person to person. The ultimate goal is to recognize and foster those fragments that are moldable and malleable. Every one of us has a certain sense of purpose within them, the ever-present question of what that purpose is, however, is as individual as the path to finding and developing it. The Grundl Leadership Institute and our systematic people development continues where other management models stop: Developing people - systematically.

Differentiation is defined as a basic function of thinking. It involves the active identification of differences, dissimilarities, differentiation. This makes it a prerequisite for perception and knowledge.

At the heart of this is responsibility with all its dimensions. Through the research of the

Leadership Excellence Report

Our specifically designed content packages offer powerful answers to three important questions:

Get up! © – How to I lead myself?

The power of language © – How do I lead conversations?

Leading Simple © – How do I lead others?


We strongly believe that the trinity


– Acting – Impact

is the best approach for personal development. Meaning:

What kind of thinking leads to which kind of emotions and insight?

Which insights lead to what actions?

What kinds of actions lead to what kind of impact (results)?

Strong People – Strong results – Strong companies

Results directly reflect the quality of our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Strong people are able to produce strong results. Strong results, in turn, make for strong businesses. Deep thought inevitably leads to well thought out actions and thus better results. This is why we directly oppose the school of thought of “higher, faster, further” with our own concept for successful mentality





This approach is very clear and intense, we are very much aware. Our attitude and approach towards you is honest and serious, positively demanding and challenging, but also inspiring and humorous. The combination of strong content, high intensity, deep impact and meaning with more than 18 years of experience makes us a unique external partner. You can count on that.

Try us! Challenge us! It would be an honor for us.


The Team

Developing people - systematically.

Our team of trainers, sales, organization, and event management does everything in its power to empower people. We don't want to be "popular" or "needed". We are concerned with the desire for responsibility, results, respect, and purpose. Our attitude is positively challenging and serious, yet always inspiring and humorous.

What makes our customers happy

"I am currently working through the work book in waves. My impressions about this weekend are actually intensified by doing that. It is absolutely incredible how much knowledge and how impactful and with pinpoint accuracy this knowledge is being imparted on us. Understanding that being loud, putting someone in their place – being emotional – is something that is not just okay to do, but can actually be useful at time, was no less than eye-opening. You managed to stir up an actual hunger for life, language, and communication, a hunger to meet with people and hear and talk about their issues. Never before have I invested money into anything this useful and profound. Thank you, Mr. Grundl."
