“In Matthias Kolbusa, Reinhard Sprenger has finally found an equal in management, far away from all aphorisms and charlatanry.” This is what the former Aldi boss and bestselling author Dieter Brandes says about Matthias Kolbusa Strategies that ignite, changes that bring about great things, and implementation strength that really deserves the name: what organization doesn‘t dream of this?

For more than 20 years, Matthias Kolbusa has been supporting top European companies to gain massively in competitive strength through consistent implementation in leadership, strategy and change.

They need people who follow a common purpose, who put their ego at the service of a greater cause and who consistently implement what will massively move their organization forward.

„Thoughtful and consistent action is important to me. That‘s why I value deep thoughts as much as courage and strength. Marcus Aurelius‘ self-reflections and Goethe‘s maxims are places of reflection for me. What I like about Winston Churchill is his consistency, about Steve Jobs his vision. And my Navy Seals training has shown me that our actions become more powerful when we understand not only the how, but above all the why.”
