Michael Couch – partner

Michael has been consulting and leading innovative and creative learning events, since 1994, for many well-known organisations in international business. He engages with ambitious young leaders, intact leadership teams or individual executives to support them in becoming the leaders they aspire to be.

A background in both Law and Music perfectly represents Michael’s fundamental interest and source of energy: supporting leaders in combining head and heart, cognitive ability with emotional intelligence, “hard” and “soft” skills to become a complete and balanced leader. He believes that leveraging diversity, in all its forms, is a major competitive advantage in today’s global business world. He encourages leaders to not only “accept”, but appreciate and capitalise on cultural and personal differences in their people to significantly enhance organisational performance and results.

Michael is a keen rower and drummer and brings the same drive and energy to those activities as he does to his training and development. Originally from Colorado, Michael has lived in Munich for many years and is a fluent German speaker.
