Fit For Change - Coaching In Times of Massive Transformations 

Speaker:  Dr. Tobias Kiefer 


In times of massive transformations, the role of a coach provides a huge opportunity to enable  people to be mentally on top of their game.     

Nearly every person at every company is affected by change. Nowadays, those transformations are  getting even more difficult as predictability of success goes down while the pressure on the  organization increases. This leads to higher stress and employees get more and more tired of  change and decision making.     

With the “Fit For Change” approach, you can coach your clients to be ready and prepared for those  moments that matter by focusing on the 5 Q-factors for success : 

  • Alignment Quotient: How to become clear on who you really want to be 
  • Vitality Quotient: How can you ensure readiness when it really matters 
  • Emotion Quotient: How to instill a culture of high emotional sensitivity 
  • Execution Quotient: How to stay in control of the many tasks & projects 
  • Mind Quotient: How to become more present and mindful in decision making   

During the workshop, you will develop competencies on  how to enablie your clients taking control  over their resources, their attention and their energy to be the source of change, inspiration and  energy needed in the VUCA times ahead. You will practice coaching conversations using the 5  Q-Factors and cutting edge tools/ technologies and approaches to support your clients succeed. 


  • Understanding how stress can be a good or a bad thing for driving change 
  • Learning how to coach leaders in organizations on how to instill a culture which is “Fit For  Change” 
  • Practicing coaching conversations in the 5 Q-factors for success 
  • Identifying top things to watch out to boost mental readiness - both for yourself and your  clients 
  • Developing an own action plan for being more present, alert and energetic in those  moments that matter
