Where is the perfect place for me,
with my ambition, my experience, my expertise,
my personality? How do I get there?
These two are the all-important questions
for your top management career, for your self-fulfillment,
happiness, growth, well-being, fame and reputation.
We are with you, Dorothea Assig + Dorothee Echter

It’s not lonely at the top! Enjoy affiliation, offer affiliation. Master the affiliation repertoire. Who belongs to the community? How do you integrate yourself?
Status-free dialogue. Pure inspiration, the richness of ideas for your own ambition. Intensity and stimulation. Mirroring, resonance and feedback at the highest level.
After a preliminary discussion we design an individual coaching concept and make a proposal, free of charge. All advisory processes are meticulously customized and therefore unique. Examples:
1 - 4 intensive face-to-face coaching-sessions of 3 hours each. Or: one individual coaching session of 4+ hours duration, plus, for the following 6 months, weekly motivational emails and telephone discussions.
EMI = Executive Mission Inquiry: a one-day individual workshop with both Assig + Echter, in order to precisely identify your personal brand and the brand-communication strategy. Includes written documentation, motivational emails and telephone discussions over the following weeks.
EMI = Executive Mission Inquiry, one day individual coaching session with both Assig + Echter, in order to identify precisely your personal brand and to deduce from this the ideal role for you.
2 weeks later you receive the detailed personal brand profile.
4 weeks later, in another coaching session of 3 hours duration, you learn how to talk about yourself, about your future performance and success, so that you are able to control what others say about you as well.
1. For each participant, for example from a top talent pool, we develop a personal brand profile, with the EMI method (Executive Mission Inquiry).
2. We reveal the individual profiles clearly and distinctly as a one-pager including:
3. All participants learn in a common training seminar how to communicate their own brand adequately and effectively.
Our method Grow.Together is designed especially for top-management teams and is carried out only by Dorothea Assig and Dorothee Echter. The individual’s unique top-management quality is identified and communicated in the most effective and discreet setting.
In one-to-one coaching interviews of 3 hours duration each, we identify the great ambition of each member of the leadership-team and articulate it precisely. From this, they can deduce how to contribute best.
After a week, individual team members will receive personalized and confidential input about their brand, brand-communication and what had the best impact on the team, orally and in writing.
After a further week, the team will receive written recommendations by Assig and Echter. Participants’ quotations will only be used with prior agreement.
During the following 2 – 3 months, 1 – 3 team workshops of 3 – 5 hours duration will follow in order to best implement the insights.
Detailed preliminary discussions with the CEO and the relevant senior managers.
Creation and coordination of a consistent, emotionally attractive, strategy-impacting, ready-to-implement concept.
The Client Company – HR/Coms/Strategy – and/or event agencies will implement the concept.
A company’s every success is brought about by an ambitious person. It all starts with an individual’s ambition. Strangely enough, rewards actually weaken ambition – a simple and proven connection. Successful people are intrinsically motivated, this is why promising extrinsic rewards – more money or higher status – interferes with the process of high performance. By contrast, all employees can become high achievers if they are intrinsically motivated. It is therefore very important that all managers and employees are either in the right position or they leave the company – with respect and support.
Employers must encourage all of their associates to identify and unfold their individual ambition, for the sake of the company. Ambitious individuals want to develop their ambition, passionately and consistently. Therefore all HR processes like coaching, recruitment, feedback and incentive systems etc. must fuel the individual’s ambition.
Our Ambition Management Theory reveals,
Precise, full of pioneering insights. Our raison d’être is to advise top-managers and HR experts how to achieve even greater things.
This is evident in how we undertake the preliminary discussions with board members and HR managers, and of course our cost-free concept and proposal.
We answer your questions: what does ambition management mean in our corporation? Which of our tools are superfluous? How can we start saving money immediately and simultaneously strengthen ambition?
You receive clear and ready-to-implement strategy recommendations.
You will be able to successfully implement these strategies in your company.
Do you have big questions? Do you want a great career? Intensive, individual, life-changing, with stimulating ready-to-implement tactics, in a group of similarly high level personalities. Compelling seminars, offered by Assig + Echter or by renowned institutions like the Managementzentrum St. Gallen or the Zentrum für Unternehmensführung in Zurich.
Examples of individually tailored seminars, workshops and speeches:
Dorothea Assig and Dorothee Echter create and give speeches for ambitious in-house or public audiences. Passion, substance, intellectually demanding stimuli. Not ordinary. Not mainstream. Ambitious. All topics are offered as workshops, involving all participants.
Ambition – how great careers succeed. Two bright people start with the same performance, yet one becomes an international investment banker, the other a clerk in the local bank branch… one becomes chair of the board, the other department head … one will be goal keeper of the national team, the other plays in the regional league. What causes these differences?
