could be: a pitch, a presentation, a talk, a 1-on-1. If you’re seeking buy-in (and we’re always seeking some form of buy-in when we’re communicating), you want to give yourself the highest possible likelihood you’ll get it.
means stepping into your role with optimal, fierce behavior. The question is: how to activate it? Leaders should be dynamic actors on their particular stages, people who can channel purpose, affect others and come alive with new impulses.
requires heightened awareness and a new sensitivity, both to current self-imposed limits and new potentials. We need a Hero’s Journey of growth and change… a new way of living and being in our world.

MARC, THANK YOU FOR GIVING A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON LEADERSHIP. JUST AWESOME AND A TRUE INSPIRATION. IT HAS BEEN AN INCREDIBLE JOURNEY SO FAR AND YOU HELPED US TO CHARGE THE TEAMS AND ACCELERATE THEM ON THE PATH TO BRING A NEW LEADERSHIP STYLE TO LIFE.
THE PLACE BERLIN FOUNDER
I HAD THE PLEASURE TO WORK WITH MARC ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS ON A DIVERSE SET OF TOPICS. WE DID PITCH TRAINING FOR STARTUPS AND THE PLACE TEAM, WE DID STORYTELLING WORKSHOPS FOR LARGE CORPORATES AND WE DID COMMUNICATION TRAINING FOR DIVERSE TEAMS. ALL OF THESE WERE AMAZING EXPERIENCES FOR THE PARTICIPANTS.
How This Can Happen
Smaller workshop sizes have their benefit: more time to explore with each person. But Larger groups allow for an intensified public experience, which can also trigger breakthroughs that may not have otherwise happened.
1-on-1 Mentoring can happen in combination with a group session or our entire process can be the two of us, in a room- exploring, sparring, building.
We structure a syllabus that allows for growth over a longer period. Something happens when we can continually come back together and strengthen and develop what we’ve found.
It’s not enough to say “I use the skills from my acting career to help those in business.” Why? Because those skills aren’t worth a damn if they don’t have impact. The way to achieve that impact is to begin by creating an alive, spontaneous atmosphere as a launching point. People grow the most when they’re tapping into their energy, their power, their heart and gut. From there, it’s about raising sensitivity to where the potentials are and giving people specific, substantial training experiences that they feel - and can continue to develop when I’m gone.
This is about offering a training that isn’t just cognitive- it’s heart and gut as well.
