"If you want to set up and implement a new organizational structure in your company,

if you want to uncover potential hidden obstacles in your teams or

if you want to achieve sustainable results that not only reflect the needs of your company, but also consistently focus on your customers.

Then I would always recommend Zarmina, her methodology and her professional attitude and professional behavior. She has supported me very successfully twice and I will continue to work with her. "

Head of Department Transport Industry

"We are a medium-sized, relatively young industrial company that has recorded fairly rapid business growth. However, the internal structures remained behind. Despite a highly motivated and hard-working team, we were faced with a number of problems - especially with regard to communication, team spirit and consequently in terms of effectiveness.
Zarmina was recommended to us. We also found out that she is so much more than a business coach. She has in-depth knowledge of human nature, combined with honest empathy towards people. After a brief analysis and in-depth personal discussions with our most important employees, she was able to see the big picture. She showed us that internal misalignments as well as a lack of communication and clear responsibilities were the problem. Zarmina's analysis was an eye-opening moment for all of us. We started our work with a series of coaching interventions.

Today we have defined clear mandates and responsibilities and our mission and vision are firmly in focus. In addition, we have established a productive discussion culture and clear guidelines with regard to decision-making and deadlines. All of this takes place in a climate of respect and appreciation for one another. Without Zarmina we would not be where we are now.
We continue to develop our organization because profound changes require time, patience and a real will to change. We thank Zarmina for her support so far and will stay in close contact to ensure that we stay on our new path of becoming a "Super Team" (Zarmina's highest level of aligned business). We can recommend them to both individuals and companies seeking sustainable development and direction. "

Business Owner and Senior Manager, Industrial Machinery

"I had just taken over the leadership of a functional team. We had little cohesion, no shared vision, and no clear priorities for our role. We didn't know how to work together to achieve our goals in the best interests of our company. There was also sensitive situations related to people that we needed support in. It was a complex situation.
I wasn't sure if my team would bring help on board and if they would open up to outside guidance. Of course, cost was also a factor.
Zarmina's advice and support for me as a team leader was exactly right and also extremely valuable in the phases of team building in which storms, standardization and performance are carried out. Zarmina has an extraordinary talent for understanding how people think, act and feel and to combine these insights with their behavior. In other words, it helps managers and executives understand the drivers (both conscious and unconscious) of team member behavior and their own!

I have learned to be more confident in my leadership style, to use my natural leadership talents and to trust my intuition. I also really understood the value of good listening. We came together as a team with a clear identity and stood together behind our mission for our stakeholders. This was the unique key to unraveling our situation.
Zarmina's insights are extremely valuable and she can help you become not only a more effective but also a more natural leader. I definitely got a lot more out of the experience than I expected. Even though I live on the other side of the planet, Zarmina is still a very important and trustworthy advisor to me. "

VP, transportation industry

“Zarmina impressed with high quality support and professional mentoring in difficult team situations. She can read human behavior and attitudes very well. In addition to her professionalism, I really appreciate her warm and open-minded personality, which enables quick connections and reliable cooperation. Thank you Zarmina. "

Business Unit Manager, Pharma

“An excellent reader of organizations and people, Zarmina was extremely valuable in
systematic assessment of the health of my organization and focus on a
strong vision, strategy and way of working.
Without Zarmina's ability to guide people and connect them to the process, the positive change we have achieved would never have been so broad, deep and lasting. "

VP, Global Biopharmaceuticals

"Working with Zarmina was an enlightening event in my business career, as she not only knows how to analyze the team, but also every individual in his or her environment, which in turn promoted a great mutual understanding of all members of the team after our workshop. It was also It is a pleasure to work with her as a person, as Zarmina shows a high level of professionalism and competence in her work. Without her help, we would not have been able to make the team what it is today. "

Manager, Pharma

“Our company had grown significantly in the past 18 to 24 months, particularly in Europe (we are a US based company), and it had become clear that we were facing a leadership challenge in order to effectively and efficiently manage this change . We decided we needed outside help and reached out to Zarmina Penner to work with the senior executive and leadership team in Europe to address this challenge. Zarmina is clearly a highly qualified and accomplished professional with excellent analytical skills.

The way she got on board and worked with both the leadership team and the leader was impressive - she had a good understanding of the business and was able to quickly build trust with the staff involved and then do a careful and careful analysis of the Execute situation, then steer the leadership team towards common ground and understanding of where they were and what needed to be done. Zarmina had a noticeable influence on the team and the business and without her competent work we would not be where we are today. "

Head, Global Development, Pharma

"I had a team of highly talented and committed designers who worked independently and somewhat isolated in a large organization on a range of products. In our bubble, we were way ahead as a team, we thought big and for the entire company, but we couldn't make it, ourselves Instead, we went our own way and did what felt right, using grassroots tactics for change, but we ourselves were not focused on our activities and had no clear shared understanding as a team of who we were and what we stood for. We were skeptical that someone from the outside could help us. I also didn't know whether my team was ready to redefine itself.

Zarmina helped me as a manager and the team to see things in context and to bring them together. That made things clear and from now on formed the basis for meaningful decisions. We are committed as a team to work within our mandate while trying to find effective ways for senior management to bring in our bigger ideas. I am impressed with the efficiency and effectiveness of Zarmina's work. She has the skills to make me, as a leader, see things more clearly with very little information that I actively and regularly make available to her for our conversations. And it never feels standard. It's very tailored to me and my immediate concerns. If you are in any way worried about your team, I wholeheartedly recommend working with Zarmina. However, be prepared to look at yourself carefully, face potentially uncomfortable truths, and be open to learn about yourself. "

Senior Manager, Medical Devices

"I had just joined a new organization and had the task of leading a multidisciplinary team without having a disciplinary leadership position. The corporate culture was new to me, the team did not work as a team, conflicts arose and the results of the work were from my point of view Not good enough from a perspective, I was stuck, not clear enough about my role, position, goal, as so many aspects of our work were unclear at the same time: structure, approach and mandate, roles and responsibilities there was already some organizational policy at work against me behind the scenes, and I was skeptical that an outside person would know enough about the company's internal structures to help us.

When Zarmina came on board my team, I went through a series of clarification activities: recognizing, understanding, reflecting and strengthening my personal beliefs, values, roles and tasks. I started to appreciate the organization and my team more and also saw the value in the challenges I was facing. This was the turning point. When the job was done, we had a clear mandate and strategy and were aligned as a team. This added to my trust as a leader in the organization.

I can recommend Zarmina to anyone who is in business. She showed me understanding and openness and offered advice on a personal level. If you have similar concerns or unclear questions, just do it. The experience was absolutely worth it for me. I wouldn't be where I am today. A big thank you."

Senior Manager, Pharma

"I worked with Zarmina on my personal development and with my team on redefining our mandate and our strategy.

Zarmina has a very unique mix: On the one hand, she has a very special feel for knowing and understanding people - why someone behaves in a certain way - on the other hand, she has a very practical approach and manages the joint project efficiently.

I have had some coaching experiences in the past, but Zarmina has helped me better understand and change some of my behaviors. It was like turning on the light in a dark room. During this process she combines her special perceptual skills with a scientific background (psychology, etc.).

Before the team exercise, she invested a lot in understanding the situation and getting to know the people on the team. She led our comfort zone workshop, showing that there is a more efficient and faster way to reach consensus, define strategy and involve team members. Working with Zarmina was the most inspiring experience of the last year for me. "

Regional VP, Biopharmaceuticals

"Zarmina has the extraordinary ability to read the thoughts, feelings and inner states of other people in a very short time. She understands everything and sees the" big picture ". From this she draws her conclusions and has a solution ready for almost every challenge and hurdle, which participants in the process can further develop and implement for themselves.

It's about realizing yourself and gaining strength and energy to connect with your team members in a personal and profound way. This was a maximum enrichment for all members of my team. The resulting strong spirit that can then be unleashed to increase the productivity of companies and teams. The results and contents of our workshop were an absolute plus for our business as well as for our private life. "

Sales Team Manager, Pharma

"Our team was very fortunate to have Zarmina as a trainer and mentor. Immersing ourselves in ourselves as an individual and exploring the power of the team was an incredible experience that made us all better and more in sync with each other. Thanks for the trip! "

Senior Design Manager, Pharma

"Meeting and working with Zarmina was one of the most impressive experiences of my life.

I felt empty and at odds with my career path, which had a negative impact on my wellbeing. To outsiders, it seemed like I had everything to enjoy my life - I had a successful career, was doing reasonably well financially, and had great opportunities, but something great was missing.
At some point I found myself between depression and anxiety, addiction and disappointment. I often blame other people for my bad experiences. Luckily, I then met Zarmina who helped me change my perspective by helping me just focus on ... myself. And that changed everything in my life. Working together gave me the right attitude and tools I needed to "rewire" my mind. And the rest quickly followed. Don't get me wrong - today I'm not even close to what I want to achieve, but I know exactly what it looks like and how to get there, and the moment I go back to my old thoughts and habits , I know that I can reach Zarmina, not only as a great coach and mentor, but also as a lifelong sparring partner and friend who can help me get back on the path I deserve.

"Before working with Zarmina, we had a hard working team that sometimes met their goals and sometimes didn't. Now we meet our goals with certainty 97% of the time."

Head of Finance, Pharmaceutical

"I was introduced to Zarmina by a trusted colleague, which led me to investigate Zarmina's approach to coaching.

Over the course of a few weeks I went through an extremely extensive process of sharing information, discussing and creating a thorough picture of my ethos, habits, style and nature.

Having spent most of my career in leadership positions with responsibility for large teams and P&L, I can safely say that this has been the most comprehensive and rewarding coaching experience I've had.

This was only made possible by a combination of Zarmina's ability to gain trust and the various techniques she cleverly designed. This effective combination is made possible by Zarmina's unique experience, expertise and personal passion to generate insights that serve the empowerment of the other.

 

From this experience I am strengthened, more self-confident and better able to control the ups and downs of my professional life and my personal relationships.

If it were possible I would recommend everyone to take advantage of this experience and work with Zarmina to find out how to approach fulfillment in life. "

"Most of the problems are hidden within us and are usually caused by ourselves. And so are the answers. Zarmina is the guiding light for both."
