Dirigieren & Führen
„Dirigieren & Führen“ („Conducting & Leading“) offers a unique concept which helps top managers questions their leadership competence and changing it to the positive. Because leading means communicating: Reaching people, understanding their potential, convincing and inspiring them. These aspects depend on the intuitively-emotional, thus, non-verbal part of communication to a great extent. Conducting is non-verbal communication at its best. Therefore, the core of the management seminar “Dirigieren & Führen” is to perceive, to try and to optimise the effect of this kind of communication through the immediate reaction of the orchestra.

Prinz zu Salm-Dalberg’sches Weingut
The wine estate of the Princes zu Salm-Salm is Germany’s oldest family-owned wine estate. The family seat, Schloss Wallhausen, is tightly woven within the microcosm of dwellings, nooks and alleys of the wine village. The impression is not illusory, for all the masonry is composed of coarsely crushed green slate, precisely the same stone in which some of the finest vineyards are rooted. Equally firm are the roots of the family tree, in which eight hundred years and 32 generations of uninterrupted viticulture and family tradition are documented. This is a long period of time to acquire knowledge and experience, gain insight, reflect on fundamental values and to pass them on to future generations.
The spirit of their home is marked by Christianity as well as a great respect for nature. In this family, tending vineyards is more than a mere source of income. Symbolically, it is also a service to nature. The reward we reap is not only grapes, but also personal satisfaction.
