Q CHALLENGE JOURNEY
What is the biggest challenge for CEOs, management teams, and business leaders?
Every day the bar of expected results is raised for leaders. You must succeed with fewer resources and still handle an increased complexity of more and diverse demands from glorecal stakeholders.
How do you constantly leverage innovation, whilst empowering and aligning your organization to be ahead of these dynamic changes?
Q Challenge Journey focuses on strengthening the culture of your organization and your leadership style to go above the bar.
How will you explore raising the bar?
Who is already driven to be continuously challenged to reach above the rising bar?
Renowned and prestigious companies, their highest leaders and game changers understand the impact of corporate culture and strong leadership on their organizations. They are using Q Challenge Journey’s expertise and skills in maximizing people’s performance to maintain and exceed their top positions in their markets.
CEOs and top leaders have been working with Q Challenge Journey in ongoing relationships seeing first-hand the results our holistic change programs brought to their companies. As leaders within are promoted, they continue the journey of the ever-increasing challenges with Q Challenge Journey.
How can we instill this deepest level of trust in you as well?
STRATEGY FOR LEADERSHIP & CULTURE
What will make your organizational culture or style of leaders unique in the eyes of your stakeholders?
Which leadership competencies lived by your leaders and which values shared by the entire organization will be an inspiration to your external and internal stakeholders?
Less differentiation in products and technologies is a result of the competition that catches up on your pioneer position quickly. The way your leaders lead, interact and communicate with stakeholders will make the difference to your business success.
How will you create a set of values and competencies that will be meaningful for your stakeholders and business?
ASSESSMENT OF LEADERSHIP & CULTURE
How will you securely navigate your leadership development or the culture development of your organization?
Today it is all about measuring results and progress.
This is why Q Challenge Journey developed a tool that measures behavior and its impact on the business results.
Our QSCAN tool measures your leadership performance and the strength of your culture, and visualizes the outcome as a cockpit point of view.
You need to know how much power (SWOT) your organizations or leaders have, how much energy to build on for the future (potential) and in which environment to navigate best (vertical analysis by continent, country, division, department and stakeholder group or horizontal) as well as what progress has been made (longitudinal analysis) and how to benchmark against objectives and the past performance.
How high is your bar today and how high would you like to raise it?
COACHING & SPARRING
EQ eats IQ for breakfast !
Coaching & Sparring is where change of mindset and behavior begins and manifests itself.
We believe that the way we think, behave and communicate cannot be taught through books; it must be approached in the context of real situations. In most of today’s complex situations, emotional intelligence is the answer, not knowledge.
In workshops of teams or cross-functional groups or in one-to-one sessions, our coaches – here called Challengers – enter into the ring with top leaders who seek a sparring partner or a sounding board to gain absolute mastery in Emotional Intelligence.
When will you be ready to be challenged?
VISIONARY & EMOTIONAL SELLING
What can you do to excite your clients?
From Features & Benefit Selling in the 90’s, to Value-Added Selling in the Millennium, we have transitioned to Visionary & Emotional Selling since 2010. In a tailored approach, your sales force will address how to understand and create needs and how to lead clients and stakeholders. Here we dive deep into blue water to anticipate the needs of the future and to set the trends with dynamic innovation.
What qualities will your sales force need to influence positively and to inspire your clients?
Q COACHING CAMP
How will you sustainably internalize and externalize new ways of thinking, behaving and communicating?
The biggest challenge to internalizing and maintaining a new mindset, behavior and communication style is making it authentic, consistent and regenerative to be experienced again in more complex situations.
Following Coaching & Sparring, leaders can respond to interactive situational scenarios specifically designed to enhance Q Challenge Journey approaches and the way they support your organization’s visions, values and competencies. Our QCC coaches will provide prompt personalized feedback, allowing leaders to continue working toward greater degrees of internalization and achievement.
How will you obtain a black belt in living the values of your organization?
GAMES & SIMULATIONS
How will you be part of a virtual team game to make the impossible possible?
Mindset and behavior change is fun!
Q Challenge Journey sets the trend of virtual leadership and cooperation games. Following Coaching & Sparring, leaders around the world can log-in, apply what has been learned and compete or cooperate to make the impossible possible in leadership specific games designed to enhance virtual cooperation.
How will you (re-)discover your joy to play?
How far and how high will you aim to achieve your objectives?
How will you align the strengthening of your desired organizational behavior and leadership style with your vision and shared values?
Q Challenge Journey offers a variety of services customized to meet and exceed your objectives. Our services are holistic. While they can be experienced individually to target a specific need, they are at their most powerful when implemented as a whole.

How do we customize a holistic development initiative for a leadership team or for an individual leader?
More detailed information on the way.
How will you experience our coaching and sparring and other services?
Q Mindset approaches and tools addressing specific leadership situations have their origin in sound scientific psychological theories and shared values applied to the real business world.
Three aspects are incorporated into the coaching style of our challengers and coaches:
1- Challenge vs. teach or train
When coaching, we do not offer solutions. If we did, how could we challenge you to raise the bar?
2- Future-oriented style vs. past-oriented style
"How will you approach this challenge?" Not, “Why do you have this certain style?"
3- Championship Philosophy
What are your strengths, and how can we enhance them to become unique qualities?
How will you challenge us?
What culture do we live within Q Challenge Journey?

How will you allow us to show you PRO q2 ?
How do we continue to challenge ourselves?
In Q Challenge Journey, you will always find inspiring challengers and coaches initiating and guiding sustainable mindset and behavioral changes with top leaders. We stretch ourselves and each other to be tigers that challenge.
That is why we founded Q Academy. Our coaches have been senior leaders in multi-national organizations with high degrees of responsibility. They have lived the real world of leadership and continue to stay sharp for themselves, one another and you.
How high will our challengers and coaches set the bar for themselves?
Where has our journey brought us so far?
Business today demands knowledge of and experience with the interlinked relationships of having organizations on the global, regional and local markets. Q Challenge Journey has this glorecal mindset and already has a presence in 6 continents
In which part of the globe will your leadership and organizational needs take us?
What drives us to challenge you to reach above the rising bar?
The requirements for the development of organizations and leaders become more differentiated and individualistic daily.
At Q Challenge Journey, we do not follow the path of standardized programs. Instead we develop and customize developmental measures according to each client’s needs, centered around the purpose and shared values of the organization.
Together with each client, we carefully consider how the desired shared values can be truly integrated in the leadership style and thus inspire internal and external stakeholders to align with the purpose of the organization while addressing the complex challenges in the market.
Our philosophy takes effect when the leaders we coach gain maximum respect from stakeholders for making the right decisions, for executing the actions they promised and by inspiring interaction with others.
How do you allow us to challenge assumptions and approaches of the old school within your organization?
“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, it is imagination.”
What does the mindset of athletic champions have in common with the mindset of world-class leaders?
Pat, our ‘multi-culti’ coach and challenger, is driven by the spirit and mindset of winning and resilience, realized both in sporting disciplines and in complex business environments. Only when leaders see themselves as champions can they win the challenges in the boardroom and markets, or on fields and courses. All winner do this by tapping deep into their imaginations to create innovative and resilient strategies for personal success.
How will you prepare yourself and your organization optimally for the next leadership challenge?
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
John Quincy Adams
An experienced entrepreneur, Hans-Martin Rüter’s actions clearly define him as a leader. He has made a career of inspiring others to do more, to become more, by envisioning success from a holistic viewpoint and guiding that vision and goals throughout the entire organization.

Ming, our programming magician, is a Hong Kong national.
In addition to sport activities and literature, he likes supporting people as a programmer to transform their ideas into the virtual world. He finds the way to digitize the craziest ideas, pulling rabbits out of virtual hats at every turn.
Since the 21st century, information and technology have become faster and more powerful. They can increase people’s efficiency, greatly extending our previously held boundaries of possibilities. However, without the exclusive human competencies of creativity and imagination, they are little more than a collection of codes and hardware. Ming works his magic so that computer science and human endeavors develop together to amaze us daily.
"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."
