Statements

Dr. Nagel and I got to know and appreciate each other on a podium discussion. Her straightforwardness, her openness, and the willingness to take unusual ways and stay true to herself are traits that created a desire for collaboration. It is not surprising that our first joint "project" did not really fit into the usual coaching offer of Dr. Nagel, but it demonstrates that she is also concerned with the development of young female high potentials.Based on her experience and analytical abilities, Dr. Nagel gives strong support for personal development as well as for managing expectations. What I personally also very much like about working with Dr. Nagel is her constant search for new challenges and creative business ideas as well as her absolute team spirit.

n my opinion, Dr. Nagel can offer an extremely unique combination of consulting services since she can support both the strategic- and business-related area as well as the interpersonal, team-oriented area. In this fashion, both the content-related requirements as well as the effective collaboration of a group can be addressed simultaneously in order to achieve better long-term business results. On a personal level, I thoroughly enjoy engaging in discussions with Dr. Nagel and I am always able to take away new ideas from our conversations. Based on her background, Dr. Nagel is in a position to highlight correlations more in depth and her insights normally go above and beyond what is considered standard.

Mitglied des Vorstands

I have got to know Dr Nagel as a professional and goal-oriented presenter and consultant, who worked out differences in groups in a remarkable way and developed "liberating" solutions with the group. She has an unerring understanding of how disagreements and divergent perspectives are to be transformed into joint initiatives and activities for the benefit of stakeholders and the company.

CEO, Nestlé Deutschland AG

On a conceptual level, Dr. Nagel provided our company with valuable ideas during our important integration process. I would like to especially emphasize her dual approach of supporting psychodynamic processes through economic success factors. I really value Dr. Nagel’s empathy with which she approaches the people involved in the project. I got to know Dr. Nagel in another regard as someone who always identifies and consistently follows new business ideas – and in doing so does not shy away from any challenges. That never ceases to impress me.

Gabriele Willems,
Leiterin Strategie, HOCHTIEF Solution AG

From the onset, the collaboration with Dr. Nagel during the strategy and management team building process was professional and enjoyable. Even the briefing and analysis phases were very target-oriented, which played a substantial role during the project’s further progression and its ultimate success. Aside from her training as a psychoanalyst, you just get the impression that Claudia Nagel draws on a broad base of diverse consulting experience. Beyond this, Dr. Nagel can rely on her profound knowledge and experience from diverse managerial functions. These distinguish her in a positive sense from many other consultants. Empathy, professionalism and the ability to never lose sight of the final goal define Dr. Nagel as a consulting partner, and I can highly recommend her!

Bernd-Thomas Hohman,
CEO Henry Schein Deutschland

The Royal Bank of Scotland has been working very successfully with Dr. Nagel in Frankfurt for many years. We especially value her competence, her experience, her empathy and understanding as well as her ability to place human values, personal development and, in turn, progress into the context of corporate performance.
