My name is Barbara Dohr, I live in Graz, Austria and I'm an experienced and dynamic trainer in adult education, fluent in German, English and Italian.
I support companies and individuals to build a thriving team culture and a positive attitude at work offering language and soft skills training as well as retreat and workshop facilitation.
I’ve been teaching and working with people from various professional backgrounds over the past 10 years gaining valuable insight into the personal and interpersonal challenges and needs of employees in today’s business world.
Strong language and soft skills are vital to be successful in an increasingly competitive world. Companies who value their employees and who know that their success depends on ensuring a productive, collaborative and healthy work environment, train and support their staff accordingly.
Your productive company retreat
Why organize a retreat? There are many possible reasons why companies choose to organize a team retreat. It improves team communication and collaboration, solves tensions between team members, brings together your remote team for a bonding experience.
With a retreat you boost the team spirit, performance and collaboration of your established or newly set-up team.
I assist you in planning, organizing and facilitating your next successful company retreat in English and/or German.
P.S.: 30, 50, 100 staff members to go on a business retreat? No problem, I've got that covered: the Kraftwerkerinnen are four facilitators experienced in leading business retreats for larger groups.
Soft skills trainings
Successful working relationships
What are soft skills? In a nutshell, soft skills are how competently people navigate the world. It is how they solve their problems, how well they communicate, and adapt to challenges in their lives.
While many people are brilliant at their jobs, some fall short in the area of soft skills, which are a key component in successful working relationships.
The good news is there are countless ways you can improve and teach soft skills in the workplace.
I can support you and your company in developing and improving soft skills at work with trainings and workshops.
English conversation hours
Speaking English fluently in the workplace
English has become the global language in business and more and more companies are choosing English as the common corporate language.
If you speak English well enough, it opens doors, if you do not, it can prevent you from moving ahead at work.
The good news is you can improve your English skills immensely with good personalised training, the right mixture of learning techniques and regular speaking practice.
In my individual English conversation hours I support and motivate you to quickly improve your English skills and speak confidently no matter your level.
