Client Testimonials

"Working together with the Global Coaching Group for us means: Top Coaches, tailor-made Service and a state of the art Coaching Concept - for an international and fast moving company like the adidas Group a clear strategic advantage to support our employee`s performance!
The cooperation starts with a careful coach selection applying search criteria according to adidas' requirements. Top coaches provide a reliable and significant service based on many years of coaching experience. Availability and flexibility among coaches is highly appreciated by us and Line Management. In regular exchanges on the coaching concept GCG's key account manager updates us on most recent coaching topics on the market and provides us with analysis on current coachings. In this context I would like to highlight her willingness to respond to adidas Group internal processes and tools. Having one contact person for all administrative issues behind coaching helps us to structure our work efficiently. We would further like to highlight the Coaching Group's high commitment to participate in our yearly Coaching Summit to further enhance and develop our adidas Group internal coaching concept.
Overall, we are very satisfied with the work and service of the Global Coaching Group and are looking forward to further cooperation!"

Tilo Kann - adidas AG, Development & Training Region EMEA

"Not only in starting on a new assignment, but also after the on-boarding period, I personally feel that coaching should be an integral part of leadership development. Over the past twelfe years, I have worked with several coaches - either in an one-on-one or a group setting. In all those cases it helped tremendously to develop my thinking and self awarenes thus increased effectiveness significantly. In 2006 I worked with Christa Schoening intensively. With her in-depth business experience as an executive as well as her empathetic personality she definetly is one of the very best."

Harald F. Stock, PhD. - Gruenenthal Group, CEO

"Coaching is a powerful method in today's business environment. Together with a 360° feedback this was a perfect way for me to increase self-awareness and to gain clarity about my future and next action steps. I also would like to emphasize that the coaching was focused on business and my specific situation and job. It was a tremendous benefit that the coach was familiar with our company culture, business and procedures. The results were proven and sustainable."

Martin Zitz - EMC, Director EMEA Delivery & Operations

"I worked with Christa Schöning, Global Coaching Group, who became my coach in 2006, for almost 2 years. I chose Christa because of her industry experience as a former banker and her broad experience with complex organisations as well as her "down-to-earth" personality. Christa helped me a lot to view situations from different angles and challenged me in every aspect. Most of all she encouraged me to better deal with work-life-balance and approach change situations with enthusiasm. I benefitted a lot from working with Christa and I' d highly like to recommend her."

"To inspire managers in becoming engaging leaders with an exciting personality is what is driving me to permanently grow my own personality and to deliver great coaching for my clients. I believe that creating future for organisations and companies- and by that creating sustainability and lasting effective growth- only works by nurturing people, profit and purpose at the same time.
That is what I find as the deepest idea of Global Coaching Group.
I know several coaching networks all over the world and I am part of some of them, but Global Coaching Group is highest operational standard to me and it is most fulfilled with vibrant energy, living values and authentical professionalism combined with a truly existing community of coaches. I am really proud and thankful of being part of this excellent community of coaches."
