Self-Management
Self-management is an important skill to work on personal and professional development. This includes sub-areas such as motivation, self-organization, time skills, goal setting, planning and decision making. Successful self-management promotes clarity, self-determination and satisfaction in private and professional life.

Time management
Time management techniques and methods help to structure the working day efficiently, to eliminate time thieves and to optimize one's own work processes. In this way, time pressure and the feeling of stress are reduced and more time sovereignty, i.e. the self-determined use of time, is achieved.
Personality
The human personality is complex and individual - and precisely for that reason a fascinating topic. Personality traits are defined as certain characteristics of a person that significantly influence his or her actions, thoughts and feelings. Over the years, many different models have been established for classifying personality. 
Self-confident appearance
Healthy self-confidence is often associated with ability, strength, leadership and authenticity and is key when it comes to addressing one's own needs and personal boundaries. Self-confidence is something you can learn. Over time, you will approach new or challenging situations more calmly and be better able to handle crises.
Conflict Management
Although conflicts often trigger unpleasant feelings, there is great opportunity and potential in them. Often, hurt needs or feelings lie behind behavior and conflicts. With the help of conflict management methods, these can be empathically identified and conflicts can be resolved in a targeted and sustainable manner.
Motivation
Motivation drives our decisions, actions and performance. It provides us with the energy to stick to our goals and plans and to implement them. Our own motivation is closely related to our personal values and needs.
