Martin Laschkolnig is the founder and director of the “Institut fur Potentialentwicklung” (Institute for the Development of Potential) in Linz, Austria. He is the incoming President of the Global Speakers Federation as well as a Past President of the German Speakers Association and has been an inspirational speaker to audiences on 4 continents from San Diego to South Africa, from Costa Rica to the Himalayas and across Europe.
He is an expert for motivation, self-esteem, confidence and inner peace and how these affect leaders, their teams and the performance of people and enterprises.
Combining an economic education and entrepreneurial background with years of studies in Buddhist Philosophy and Theory of Perception with Tibetan monks in India led to a new and different approach to view and solve our problems.
Since 2003 Martin Laschkolnig is a representative of the International Council for Self-Esteem in Austria. The Council is a worldwide not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion of the importance of self-esteem and self-confidence for everyone in our societies, from infants to adults, in schools, families and the business world.
He created several programmes like “Miracle Confidence - with 5 steps to self-motivated employees“ which help companies to create an environment in the enterprise that allows for maximum confidence among employees. This has advantages not only for the employees but makes a lot of economic sense as well. Studies have shown that this will lead to an engaged workforce with a high emotional bonding to the company, less sick leaves and absences, lower error and accident rates, increased retention of employees AND customers and the closing rate goes up.
His latest programs are addressing how to handle the flow of life in uncertain times and are called “Trusting the Flow of Life” and “Serenity in Leadership” which shows practical and simple approaches to be a more effective leader in leading yourself and others when change is immanent and unavoidable. It’s amazing how effective one can become when one stops resisting life and how to get into being carried by the flow of life and deals with letting go of drama and stress and moving from (even deep) crisis into inner peace not only in theory but also using a simple process that can be integrated in everyone’s daily life.
