„I strongly recommend to attend Mr. Rock's negotiation training, which I had the pleasure of attending at the TUM Institute for Lifelong Learning. As attorney with U.S. law firm background, I find myself in negotiations on a daily basis. This training is not only profoundly insightful but also remarkably transformative. Mr. Rock's introduction of the "Driver Seat Concept" was compelling. This innovative approach reshapes traditional negotiation strategies and finally provides a negotiation tool that works. The delivery of this concept coupled with real-world examples by Mr. Rock, offer a robust framework for any negotiator. In a realistic and competitive environment, I found myself in simulated complex business negotiations. These exercises immediately transferred the Driver Seat Concept to my practical skills. It is clear that this workshop has equipped me with invaluable tools and the insights gained have been eye-opening. I firmly believe such training should be a standard component of every educational curricula!“

"Mr Rock's negotiation workshop is very well structured and extremely practical. I myself have independently acquired and conducted >2,000 sales appointments with industrial customers and enjoyed the corresponding training. No other trainer has taught me the subject of negotiation and how to conduct it consistently as well as Mr Rock. I recommend every sales manager to take a look at his seminars."

"I had the great pleasure of working with Dr Hermann Rock, who delivered an outstanding negotiation module as part of a corporate learning programme in leadership at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). This module, which was tailored to the needs of a world-leading Swiss industrial company, received excellent feedback. Dr Rock was able to combine theory and practice in such a way that the learning material was not only interesting and understandable, but also particularly practical thanks to the active involvement of the participants. I particularly liked the fact that the driver seat concept taught can be implemented immediately in everyday life, e.g. in management or project situations."

The workshop offers a successful mix of theory and practice, allowing participants to apply what they've learned in a simulated negotiation during the training itself. Overall, it's a great enrichment for the entire team, from beginners to experts."

"As a chief physician, I was very happy with my profession but rather unhappy with my former salary. Dr. Hermann Rock led the negotiations with the managing director with immense kindness, perfect methodology, and absolute precision. Initially, the opposing party showed little interest in my propositions, yet, with a strategic shift, Dr. Rock managed to engage their attention, dramatically increase their motivation, and secure my desired new salary. Fascinatingly, he consistently anticipated the opposing side's responses with remarkable accuracy and events transpired exactly as he predicted. My gratitude towards him is boundless, as I now not only find fulfillment in my career but also in my earnings again."

"Negotiation training with depth and tangible added value for the day-to-day practice of lawyers aiming to apply best practices for their most demanding clients! Hermann not only explains the theory behind what matters in negotiations within a business environment, but as 'one of us, also shares his extensive personal experience with us. As a fellow practitioner himself, he knows precisely what is of importance for us lawyers."
