“Thank you again for an excellent coaching session last week.  I thought you might like to know the outcome: well, we were successful.  The board gave in-principle approval, funding to get started and they will release the full budget once we completed a few specific actions. Using your help I felt really well prepared and I was pleased with how I did. Interestingly, the way that one of my sponsors did the opening pitch was exactly as you described; it was really compelling and powerful! Anyway, thank you again and look forward to our next session!”

Torsten eased those, and proved that such a course could indeed be exceptionally valuable. It was a genuine pleasure and a privilege to have the coaching sessions with Torsten – interesting, informative, challenging, and very enjoyable. Top coaching – thank you!”

Manager, Allan Gray

Torsten Henschel is a highly skilled, well versed and extremely ethical personal coach. Coupled with that he has a true passion for human-development and life enrichment in general. The coaching sessions I have had so far has all been done in a timely and very professional manner. At the beginning and end of each session I had a chance to reflect on the previous and current sessions, and every time I realized how much these sessions have opened up new thought-provoking avenues. This process not only changed my thinking about myself, but also widened my horizons regarding career, relations and ethics in general. Although Torsten has a very non-obtrusive way of coaching, he does manage in a very skillful way to get to the bottom of issues at hand. Without the proper guidance of a professional coach like Torsten, I would probably never realized that my personal true potential is yet to be brought into fruition. I can sincerely recommend Torsten as personal and/or professional coach for any individual or organization. His willingness to extend himself into his subject matter, as well as his humble but professional manner in which he challenges his subjects to look further, harder and deeper into matters of concern, begs to be recommended.”
