Martin is a great educator and delivered an excellent program to the senior management team. Martin challenged us to see things differently, lead with confidence.

Martin Probst delivered an engaging and in-depth presentation on the DISC model of leadership for the RMIT Executive MBA. His interactive session encouraged students to share their stories and experiences, which added a practical and more authentic discussion that students continued to discuss days later. I would describe Martin as professional AND approachable. His materials (handouts, info sheets) were beautifully designed and very helpful for future reflection and development that extends outside of the session. I look forward to collaborating with Martin again. Dr Melissa Wheeler Executive MBA Facilitator, RMIT University

It blows my mind

It blows my mind that Martin Probst can deliver that kind of mindset change in such a short period of time.

In just one short session I was able to reset my thinking around conflict participation and resolution. From a management perspective his logic is easy to understand and relatable to teams. I highly recommend working with Martin.

I enjoyed and looked forward to every session

Camilla Novotna - Profile Picture - Testimonials - Reviews

 

Before working with PROfound Leadership, I was unsure about my communication style – I often found myself in a situation caused by miscommunication. Generally, always considering myself not being a team player, I wanted to learn how to work with my growing team of employees and my work colleagues. Also my self confidence was quite low, impacting my relationships with our prospects / customers.

While learning and applying the different strategies, I have learned to listen first. The engagement and communication with my new team is improving. Mainly, I have really enjoyed learning more about myself, how past experiences have affected me and what beliefs I have formed from those experiences. This gave me such insight into my own strengths and weaknesses and what I want to improve and act on.

As a result of completing the Leadership Program and Coaching sessions, I have been able to get better organized, identify and verbalize better our company’s values, mission and vision that guides now the team and improved the communication with our clients and suppliers.

I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to grow. I feel like I have grown as a person and as an entrepreneur. Working with Martin has improved all my relationships, with myself, my partner and within my business. I also enjoyed and looked forward to every session.
