"Mrs Ates has supported us with her process guidance in our management team. This has enabled us to significantly improve our cooperation and team performance."

Dr. Ralf Klinge
Geschäftsführer Commerz Business Consulting GmbH

"Sevgi Ates is a guarantor for outstanding success. This has been confirmed again and again through our many years of work together. Our biggest coup was in the development of our sales orientation. Our team spirit has been at a constant high since then and the figures in our cross-selling and up-selling campaigns have doubled and, in some areas, even tripled.  We are looking forward to further cooperation with Sevgi Ates."

Ingo Hothum,
Head of Customer Services Department, PSB Presse Service Bonn GmbH & Co. KG

"Through the many years of experience of ATES in the areas of self-management and attitude change, we have had a successful event that gives our employees strength and joy – especially in times of high pressure.  We wanted to show our employees how they could free themselves from negative experience in their day-to-day work and be able to regain a sense of joy in their work. This requirement was fully satisfied in the 'Increasing performance with self-management' workshop."

Rüdiger Burg,
Director and Head of Sach/HUK-Schaden, DEVK

"As a management consultant, Mrs Ates has a unique ability to combine results orientation and human abilities. With her Working Spirit® system, she has succeeded in motivating our sales force employees to absolute top performance levels. In the cooperation process with Mrs Ates, the number of high performers has doubled in our team – a remarkable achievement, especially when selling a product that needs a lot of explanation. As a strategic consultant, too, Mrs Ates is able to comprehensively win people over with her many years of expertise."

Ralf Niermann,
General Manager, Daten Info Service Eibl GmbH

"The coaching for entrepreneurs has taken me a long way forward. Mrs Ates has succeeded in re-aligning my personal objectives and consolidating my strengths with her knowledge of combining performance energy in organisations and management. This has released capacities that I am now deploying for interesting new business models. We only needed a few sessions for the whole process. The result is more time, more money. Brilliant! Many thanks for everything! Sometimes the path to take can be really easy."

Jörg Sigle,
General Manager, VISIONWORKERS COMMUNICATIONS GMBH

"Valuable strategic consulting. With Mrs Ates, projects succeed even under the most difficult conditions. The change processes are managed with great efficiency – and Mrs Ates never loses sight of the ultimate objective. A great compliment and highly recommended."

"Mrs Ates has a special gift for making good sense, formulating this into objectives and developing entrepreneurial mission statements. That is why my employees and I are very happy to work with Mrs Ates. Mrs Ates has achieved great things, both in my personal office and in our distributorships.

Arnd Schöter,
General Manager, text2net GmbH

"With the help of Sevgi Ates, as head trainer I succeeded in winning seven home games in a row – already in my first term of office. That is a record to this day! What especially impressed me was her clear, direct and inviting way of reaching people and motivating them to top performance. And her expert knowledge about football surprised me more than once. An absolute win for any trainer!"

Frank Schaefer
Trainer, FC Cologne

"Anyone who has the luck to meet Sevgi Ates will definitely be rearranging their annual budget to ensure that at least a couple of coaching sessions become possible with her. If you have the privilege of having Sevgi Ates by your side as coach, you discover new options and find solutions where there were problems before. Her 'no compromises!' mantra is still stuck with me, even today, for many decisions. Sevgi Ates – uncompromisingly good."

Markus Neuhaus,
Key Account Manager, Falck Unternehmensgruppe Germany

"Success begins in your head. Through the work with Mrs Ates I am now able to concentrate by focusing on my strengths. Working under high pressure has been much easier to manage since I have known how, and where, I can purposefully deploy my abilities and expertise. That also helps me with my golf, which I have also been able to improve in the last few months. I am really looking forward to her book!"
