As an HR leader responsible for Recruiting at Evonik, I have had the pleasure of working with Andreas and Jonas from zweikern. My experience with zweikern has been exceptional, particularly in the area of impactful leadership development, one to one coaching, and deep cultural challenging to enhance our German Recruiting organization. Their expertise and guidance have been invaluable in helping us identify and develop our leaders and teams, and in creating a culture of excellence within our organization. I highly recommend Zweikern to any company looking to improve their leadership and organizational effectiveness. Their professionalism, knowledge, and commitment to their clients are truly outstanding, and working with them has been an outright joyful experience. Thank you, zweikern, for your partnership and support!

When I took over the responsibility for our change project, the project was already well underway. During my first meeting with the zweikern team, I was immediately struck by their refreshing and energetic approach. The motivation zweikern displayed to not only comfortably involve the employees of our organization in the change but also to initiate a real transformation in our leadership and collaboration culture was both impressive and passionately implemented. zweikern was willing to take nonconformist positions against leaders and employees to clearly highlight development needs and pursue ambitious goals. Ultimately, it was precisely these induced controversies, brought to the table and discussed, that sparked a change in thinking. If you're looking for a partner who doesn't just tell you what you want to hear but measures you against your own goals, supports you diligently in achieving those goals, and candidly highlights deficits, then zweikern is exactly the right fit for you.
