We are looking for distinctive personalities that identify with our values and contribute to our business success. RELEVANT helps us to identify such candidates, to really understand them, to further develop our employees and thereby to shape the transformation from start-up to a profitable organization. RELEVANT is important to me as an adviser and sparring partner, and I can always rely on them.”

Reinhard Rubow, Member of the Board, Retina Implant AG

“Passion for learning transfer and behavioral changes unites us with RELEVANT. RELEVANT shows a great understanding for effective combination of analogue and digital. Our cooperation is stimulating, and I look forward to expanding it in the future.”

Patrick Hypscher, Founder & CEO, Skill Hero GmbH

“I had recommended you to an employee to go through a career coaching with you, to help him prepare the next steps for his career following promotion. The conversation with you has helped him sharpen his self-image: He shows greater awareness of his personal values and can identify his strengths more clearly. The discussion of alternatives to a classic career in consulting has helped him understand what to look for in future job offers. I think it’s great that you openly discussed how to deal with personal derailers, and what strategies can be used to deal with them.”

Prof. Dr. Lutz Kaufmann, Professor of International Business & Supply Management, WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management

“Hogan is a tool that is easy to understand, well applicable, and more equitable than other methods in terms of a person´s individuality. It should be emphasized that Hogan not only captures identity, but also reputation: how am I likely to be perceived by others in calm and tense times? This has a high relevance for the increasing rate of change in companies. Overall, the Hogan provides a very good basis for providing practical advice to executives.
The certification by René Kusch was conducted in a very sound and practical way. The examples were very catchy and repeatedly referred to current topics of Generali in Germany, so that we were well prepared for the Hogan use in everyday life. My team and I are enthusiastic about Hogan and RELEVANT and would recommend him at any time.”

Gaby Kullbach, Head of Talent Management, Generali Deutschland AG

“We have been working with RELEVANT for some time in the application of HOGAN Assessments. The support services provided by RELEVANT are truly convincing all along the line. Fast response times, customer-oriented communication, a comprehensive range of services to sharpen the knowledge gained through the Hogan certification and the willingness to perform the renowned “go the extra mile” for customers and their clients in an extremely professional manner. This simple leads to successful, positive and constructive collaboration.

Many thanks to the RELEVANT team – we are looking forward to more collaboration in the future.”

Georg R. Fisch, Certified Coach and Lawyer, fisch & friends INTERNATIONAL

“Many thanks, dear RELEVANT Team, for passing on your profound and high-value knowledge to trainers and coaches. And all these helpful materials you developed to build the bridge from Hogan’s Big Data to the context of my clients. I found your creative setting in the workshop ingenious and inspiring. You do much more than just a Hogan certification: you are personally dedicated and really committed to the development of your participants.

Using the Hogan Assessment Suite accelerates my coaching processes enormously. An effective and comprehensive tool from which my clients and I benefit equally! Hogan contributes significantly to the quality and effectiveness of coaching.”

Sabine Thiel, Trainer and Coach, BRILLIANZ Consult

“As an experienced I/O psychologist I know many instruments and assessments. Hogan is comprehensive and profound at the same time – it also is scientifically grounded and its quality well tested. However, what interests the user in the business the most: With Hogan, people recognize why well-intentioned behavior often does not lead to the desired outcome, and they can immediately derive what needs to be changed and in what way to increase their own impact tremendously. I have yet to meet a Hogan user who has not drawn added value from the result for him or herself.

Dr. René Kusch and his team know how personality impacts in the workplace. I know of no one in the German-speaking world who has so thoroughly mastered the tool as René. That enriches every dialogue. Working with Relevant is simply fun – professional, extremely easy-going and always with a good joint purpose.”

Dr. Marco Behrmann, Owner and Business Consultant, X-Rubicon®

“Fondsdepot Bank has been collaborating with RELEVANT in the area of personnel and organizational development for 5+ years. With RELEVANT, it is all about personality, predicting workplace performance and new/humble leadership. We utilized the Hogan Leadership Forecast Series for each senior management team member to increase their strategic self-awareness, and inform their leadership development plan. We then identified the patterns of the team and what those mean for defining and executing Fondsdepot Bank’s business strategy, which has become an ongoing process. I highly recommend coaching, sparring, facilitation and consulting by RELEVANT. Without RELEVANT’s support and targeted, impactful interventions the organization would not be at the level it is now.”

Sebastian Henrichs, CEO, Fondsdepot Bank GmbH

“After a restructuring, my team has more than doubled and our projects have become larger and more complex. Clarity and more focus were needed.
In the Hogan Debriefing with René, we discussed, how my relationship-oriented management style in particular enables me to make efficient business decisions more quickly without jeopardizing effective contact with my employees. On the contrary. Only together as a team will we be able to master the challenges that lie ahead.

The sparring was fun and so concrete that I was able to implement some of the things immediately.”

Dr. Simon Kremers, Head of Geophysics, DMT GmbH & Co. KG
