Lead Your Team to Peak Performance
Deliver your most challenging projects in high spirits, not high blood-pressure!
Reap the rewards of happy clients, consistent business growth and a fulfilling career
without the firefighting, high blood pressure and risk of burnout
Projects can be a tangled mess of screaming priorities.
Everything seems to be urgent, everything is at risk to cause a delay, and if you’re already behind, the stress is building to unknown proportions. And just when you feel like you have some kind of control, your client, boss or other stakeholder starts clamoring for more, faster, bigger, cheaper, yesterday!
All the while, you’re still trying to figure out where the problem actually came from.
But you have no time to dig into it, because your team is running around like headless chickens.
You need to go chase them, reign them in, give them priorities, help them see the light of day – overworked and stressed as they already are.
At night, you fall onto your bed, exhausted.
Another extensive day in the office. Did you make any progress? Maybe. But you’re not sure. Are you moving in the right direction? Or did you just manage to silence your most outspoken critics… for a day or two?
I get it.
Delivering a project successfully, on point, to the expectations of your client, is the coming together of a million factors not the least of which is the people dynamics in and around your project.
With a combination of operations, leadership, and personal skills, you will be able to create success in any challenging stakeholder environment.
This is the place to learn them.

What they say...
We have been working with Ms. Collisi for several years on global rollout projects in the pricing environment. Here Ms. Collisi has become a reliable partner for project management, quality assurance and coaching of the project teams. I receive clear statements, suggestions for necessary changes and ultimately excellent results.
-Dr Alwin YOUNG | Former Vice president, BASF management Consulting ICP
What they say...
What I appreciate most is the outside view. The objective feedback is extremely valuable. This gives you concrete starting points for quick improvements that can be implemented directly.
– Jan Micheel | Project Manager, Conet Business Consultants GMBH
What they say...
I have seen Angelika Collisi in both a business and a volunteer context as a clever, analytically thinking and at the same time humanly approachable personality. She knows how to get to the bottom of situations in a short time and to work out the essentials – with the necessary professional distance and yet always full of empathy for the conversation partner.
-Simone Bittner-Posavec | Owner, Maintext
Let’s change the world!
Projects are our lead mechanism to change the world, especially in business
But as J.K. Rowling put it, there is “a lot more to magic than saying a few funny words and waving your wand!” The same applies to project and team leadership. All the managers out there get faced with one simple truth the moment they set foot in their first-ever project: No-one has prepared them for the experience.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve had your boss hand over responsibility for a project with a good-luck smile and the implicit understanding that this was your chance for making – or breaking – your career. And it gets worse.
The numbers for project success are dismal – only one in three gets delivered according to initial goals in terms of time, scope (quality), and budget. And the discussion on agile hasn’t helped. The changes in scope and time have become more widely accepted, but the frustration about a lack of discipline and professionalism is still real. And that’s dangerous ground for any service-based business. Making your clients happy and delivering consistently in good quality is key to any sustained and profitable enterprise.
So there is real pressure to get projects right – and that’s where I come in.
I’m here to help you achieve your goals – with your team, for your personal career ambitions, and for the company or organization you represent. While some tasks in project leadership are widely taught in project management courses, the real fun begins when you start looking at the complex web of relationships you need to orchestrate.
- Aligning the forces of your team so that they work as one cohesive entity
- Mastering your client and other stakeholder relationships
- Navigating the waves of continuously changing conditions over a lengthy period of time
- … and all that while staying sane and fulfilled with the career or your choice
This is what I want for you, and that’s what I’m here to help you accomplish.
And if, somewhere along the way, we change the world for a better one, all the better!

Tried & Tested
I have led, guided, and coached successful project teams for more than 15 years. From SAP implementation to total process restructuring to Global Software rollout to tech start-up, I have implemented the methods and approach I teach. Hundreds of workshop participants, dozens of teams, and innumerable coaching clients have used the same guidelines and tools and seen the results they thought impossible to achieve.
You don’t need another rule book or method guru. The real fun begins when we walk into the next meeting, and the group of humans we meet there behave in a totally unexpected and unhelpful way. I’ll teach you how to not only survive this situation, but thrive in it, so that you can turn it around into a productive collaboration toward a common goal.
