John helped me to understand my team much better.
I lead the division of Corporate Services with several teams. All teams are focussing on very different topics. They do a great job every day, delivering great results. My daily challenge is to understand their individual, still very different needs and to keep a highly diverse group motivated.
John and his course about DISK – (the Persolog Behavioural Profile) helped me a lot to understand the different types and characters in my teams much better. The training, exercises and discussions allowed me to now see the obvious as well as the hidden behaviour patterns more clearly. They are sometimes difficult to understand. And the two days with John gave also me some clear ideas of my own behaviour and how it may be reflected by others – well worth thinking about, too!
I can highly recommend meeting with John if you need an open and honest sparring partner to understand better how you and others interact with each other and to develop valuable ideas (from your own background and situation!) and learn how to deal better in everyday situations with your team.

Coaching with John is clearly time well spent!
I received a suggestion that John could help me with practical business issues. And this all in English, the world business language.
I am pleased I followed this tip of my senior manager as I have already received a great big bunch of benefits. Here they are:
I feel more confident in international meetings. This is really important especially in teleconferences. John has shown me great models on film and audio which we use to develop my know-how. This means I am much more flexible when speaking to international colleagues.
John’s email tips make my mails easy to read and crystal clear to my European colleagues.
An additional excellent bonus is that we develop my sales and customer relationship skills by analyzing actual case studies of my business meetings.
A coaching session with John is clearly time well spent!

John has helped me to optimise my skills.
I asked John to help me to improve my communication skills in English. My challenge was that I have been asked to manage a hotel group with 3 international hotels in Mannheim, Germany.
That is really good news …
And the bad news? Well, managers meet and often speak only English – no German and no Greek!
John Doorbar has helped me to optimise my skills and to prepare really well. This means I am able to speak much better at these meetings. I improve each time John and I meet to discuss my projects at work.
Excellent help! I can warmly recommend him.

Learning with John is one of the things in life you should do!
He is always enthusiastically engaged and you have the feeling he enjoys every second of the session. You could say he turns his hobby – teaching people – into a profession!
John always asks you about your expectation and aims at the start of every session. Everybody can propose their wishes to make the lessons as fruitful as possible. He includes your own specific problem in a way the whole group benefits!
A lot of conversations about all different kinds of things combined with every possible form of media – like video, tape and books makes the learning time very efficient and interesting. John has a great feeling of communication training in your own specific business area. You never have a bad feeling or a poor motivation during his sessions.
In every second of a seven-hour programme John is more professional than any other teacher I know! I can really recommend having John as a teacher!
He is the best teacher I’ve ever had!

Very memorable training
John Doorbar’s training was effective, entertaining and very memorable and I am still using many of the strategies John taught us 5 years ago.
Part of what he teaches is about linguistics – an important part. How we use words to influence our audience, in meetings with groups, presentations or one-to-one.
Beyond that he is also an excellent presentation coach for managers who need to sell ideas to groups or individual decision makers.
