...many of the questions given above seem simple at first glance and become fascinatingly profound when reflected consciously.
Frequently, we have developed approaches and strategies to cope, improve or change. Quite practically, this does not always work – which is perfectly normal. Working on yourself is a life task. Sometimes it seems a little like trial and error - and that is just fine. From our point it can be an inspiring experience to work with the right person by your side.

(Henry Thoreau)

Thoreau's argument is twofold: first, exploring your key drivers is an awesome venture and the very foundation of your personal journey. Seeking to identify personal purpose that goes beyond the obvious is fascinating errand. And with Capricornus Consulting we accompany great individuals on their journeys to spark leaderhip.

Second, asking great questions is a mindset also. We consider ourselves as midwives of leadership potential. Indeed, we do not claim to have all the answers, but elicit leadership potential in a straightforward, focused and thought-provoking way.

In all our projects, we kindle that spark when conducting executive coaching, assessing and developing leadership and supporting organizational effectiveness.
