Inspiring change – driving performance – creating impact
These are among the most relevant developmental challenges in today´s world; no matter if it is on personal, professional, organizational, economic or social level.

How are you tackling them?

APN believes in your potential.
We offer you a comprehensive approach to address all of the three challenges by embracing the major related paradoxes of being at the same time

  • focused and open,
  • structured and flexible,
  • performing and sustainable.

Our focus is on helping you to activate your potential.
Starting with attitude, we then provide roadmaps, train tools and behaviors, facilitate finding your own approach to tackle challenges and identifying your own solutions, and we support you in the implementation and roll out.

We do all this with a minimum of external resources.
Our belief is that you, your team, your organization own the solution and the way to make it happen.

Our goals are:

  • to activate your entrepreneurial spirit
  • to inspire your performance focus
  • to foster sustainable solutions.

Our expertise includes models and tools of:

  • secure base leadership (based on Bowlby, Kohlrieser, Coombe, Goldsworthy)
  • employee engagement and alignment
  • humanistic psychologies (Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Group Dynamics, …)
  • dialogue and conflict management
  • emotional competencies (based on Kübler-Ross, Reich, Steiner, Riemann and others)

is the dynamic capacity
to act
from a state of balance between several opposing forces
with clarity of position and direction.

At APN Sàrl., we adhere to the ethical standards of humanistic psychologies and the economic fundamentals of a social market economy considering behavioral motivations.

Depending on contexts and situations we are able to zoom-in on specifics and zoom-out to the bigger picture. This includes putting attention and awareness on the different individuals involved and their needs AND the organizational needs in terms of functionality, performance, sustainability and profitability. Even in crisis situations we encourage to focus on longer term perspectives and place attention to short term needs as necessary and required.
