For over 20 years, ATES GmbH has established itself as the company to approach where all the areas concerned with systematic company development are involved. Together with her team, Sevgi Ates does everything that results in successful company development, including Executive Coaching, HR Consulting and Change Management. With its international network of qualified consultants, ATES has been supporting more and more projects all over Europe and in the USA since 2014.
ATES is a service provider that systematically combines the expertise of all areas of successful organisational and company development. As well as Strategic Management Consultancy, Change Management and Executive Coaching, its portfolio also consists of measures such as the training and qualification of teams, employees and managers, Developing Corporate Identity or Sales Coaching. The broad range of services from ATES has been divided into the Working Spirit® BusinessPro and BusinessClassic areas since the re-launch in 2015, where all the BusinessPro services are exclusively attended to by Sevgi Ates.
Working Spirit® forms the basis for all the projects. This is a specially developed systematic consulting method for increasing performance energy. ATES considers companies, teams and organisations in terms of their structure and culture, right down to the individual. By fully opening up people's resources, unused potential is revealed and positive energy is released – and all this flows into the organisation in the form of commitment, creativity and increased performance. As it is, people with access to expertise, performance energy and motivation are the key to the greatest business success.
Performance energy is the foundation for great success and achieved objectives. Our main priority is to open up this strength from within a system.
Neither a consultant nor a coach nor any method will ever replace people's own areas of responsibility. But you can have new approaches and undiscovered potential discovered.
We are constantly aware of the interdependency between systems and individuals, people and context. This interdependency plays a decisive role in our work.
We do not rely on chance and luck, we shape everything that can be shaped. And that is a great deal more than luck and chance can ever throw at us.
