The true meaning of leadership really becomes clear after you've worked with Arnold Blits
Leadership is one of the most frequently discussed topics in management books, but the true meaning of leadership really becomes clear after you've worked with Arnold Blits. In fact, we have adjusted our business strategy in accordance with his revolutionary insights. What once started with a single training of our sales teams, has gradually become a way of thinking and working that we have promoted throughout our company and with great results.
Our sales have increased significantly since we started with the trainings of Arnold Blits
I have sent Arnold Blits to most of our companies in Europe. This includes Belgium, France, Spain, Germany, the UK and The Netherlands. What Arnold brings is very different from the many other trainings I have had during my career. He has a novel view of how relations work (or do not work) and what needs to happen to improve them. The strength lies in his personal approach toward each person in the training. This has helped to resolve issues between some team members and greatly improved the functioning of the teams. In addition, our sales have increased significantly since we started with the Blits trainings.
If you want to build a successful company, the controversial insights of Arnold Blits are very useful.
To be honest, I was never very impressed by trainers and advisors. So during the first training with Arnold Blits, my expectations were not high. Just another one, I thought.... But nothing could be further from the truth! Arnold's training courses are unique: Not only in terms of content, but also in regard to the way in which he works and the results he achieves. Previously, I was much less concerned with leadership and I did most of it just by instinct. Now I know that feeling is often a completely wrong advisor, especially when you have to do brave things. Arnold made me much more conscious, which makes me feel less self-assured. In fact, it's logical. Because as long as you don't know what you don't know, you'll feel good. But then you miss the real grip on your organization, because you see only half of it. If you want to build a successful company for the long term, the insights of Arnold Blits are very useful. In the short term, the result is personal growth. You become a better leader and more effective in your profession. But Arnold offers so much more than his - usually - controversial insights. In the present time, I also call on him for very practical creative solutions. Within a few minutes, he comes up with complete written texts, marketing concepts or he solves complex sales cases on the spot. All of which can be applied immediately. Bizarre, but true!
Thank you Arnold for the outstanding leadership trainings for my management team in Addis Ababa
I would like to thank Arnold for the outstanding leadership trainings for my management team in Addis Ababa. I found the trainings very useful for my leadership role. It was beyond what I expected. I checked with my team and all of them were happy and very amazed by the impact. I strongly believe we will have a very strong team in the near future. Once again thanks a lot for your many insights and support.
In just two days of training, Arnold Blits has given me more useful insights than all the management courses I've done before in my career.
In just two days of training, Arnold Blits has given me more useful insights than all the management courses I've done before in my career. As a team, we have grown enormously close to each other. Arnold has shown us how we can become better leaders for our people. The word 'relationship' has been given real meaning and for the first time we can consciously create both internal and external relationships and especially deepen relationships. The person Arnold is unique and intense. He clarifies things and is the first to discuss difficult subjects. Arnold teaches you to look at real reality. And that often turns out to be different than you thought. But it is such a relief to do this. It gives me more grip and energy. That was the case with all of us. We are working hard to apply his insights. But we can do it. As individual leaders and as a group of horizontal peers.
The people Arnold trained were invariably enthusiastic, confused and changed. The movement he creates is enormous!
Arnold Blits is in a class of his own. He has the gift to explain complicated concepts so clearly that you can test everything directly. He reveals how the world really works. I have participated at several trainings with Arnold and each training has given me a lot of new insights. His way of training is therefore unrivaled. It does not matter what question you have or what problem you submit to him, he will have a sensible answer and he makes you think. Arnold can make a team out of loose sand, make sales generate a higher turnover, cope with business crises or tell you survival strategies in corporate companies. The people he trained were invariably enthusiastic, confused and changed. The movement he creates is enormous!
Arnold Blits is one of a kind phenomenon; brilliant and practical and also a too much well-kept secret
I had just been appointed as general manager of Organon Venezuela in 2007. My predecessor introduced me to Arnold Blits, who would have such a big impact on my life. With his super sharp eye and unconventional ideas, he stole my heart and gradually my mind as well. Arnold arrived in Caracas a couple of months later. The two weeks that he spent with us were very impressive. Immediately he created a perfect interface with my Venezuelan management team and the sales teams. Carefully, Arnold broke through all the personal barriers and created more trust amongst each other. He also taught us successfully, how to beat our competitors. In the three years that I have been in Venezuela, hardly a day has gone by in which we did not take his lessons to heart and wondered WWAD? (What Would Arnold Do?) Arnold Blits is one of a kind phenomenon; brilliant and practical and also a too much well-kept secret!
Arnold lets you discover that reality is often completely different from what you initially thought.
Arnold Blits' training is nothing like the many leadership or sales courses we have experienced before. Arnold teaches you to look differently and to see better how things actually work. Step by step, he lets you discover that reality is often completely different from what you initially thought. On the one hand, that's great, because you get on quickly and you learn to see your blind spots. On the other hand, it is sometimes quite confronting when Arnold turns your world - which you thought you knew how it worked - upside down. But the end result is very rewarding because it gives you a lot of clarity and grip. Arnold Blits' approach is unique and very outspoken. He uses practical and personal examples and loves logic, common sense and humour. He encourages you to think for yourself and to test everything by asking a lot of questions. As a result, you become a better leader and are able to create real personal relationships and see things more clearly.
You cannot put Arnold in a box. He is a trainer, a consultant, a creator and a strategist
The first time I worked with Arnold Blits was in 2006. At that time he has shown me insights on leadership and sales, that I have been able to use as the managing director of a fashion company. Over the years, I have enlisted Arnold’s services at various companies to give both leadership and commerce a huge boost. I know him as an intelligent and versatile man with a great sense of humor. You cannot put Arnold in a box. Is he a trainer, a consultant, a creator or a strategist? Actually he is all of these and it does not matter to me anyway. Arnold is unique and he still knows how to amaze me with his sharp analyses and practical and customized solutions. I hope to work with him for a long time and can highly recommend him.
Arnold Blits broke through my carefully constructed façades of positivity and enthusiasm
Long ago, when I was a junior sergeant (middle manager) at AstraZeneca, Arnold Blits broke through my carefully constructed façades of positivity and enthusiasm. At first I felt confused and displaced, but the results were great. Later I became a manager at Friso infant nutrition. I worked with a team where the mutual trust had broken down. I knew immediately that only Blits could break through all the thick walls of distrust and resistance. Indeed Arnold created miracles once again. And today, as an entrepreneur and general manager, I have again seen him do incredible things with my current team. I really appreciate Arnold: his intellect, directness, courage and his sense of humor. But above all, I love his groundbreaking and revolutionary insights on leadership and sales. Arnold Blits is without a doubt the person I have learned the most from.
The approach of Arnold Blits is special. He provides insights on leadership and sales that are unique, but very practical too
The approach of Arnold Blits is special. He provides insights on leadership and sales that are unique, but also very practical to use. He taught me how to make 'sergeants' from my group of regional managers and how to develop a close team at the same time. Nowadays many people say that trust, building relationships and new leadership are needed. But Arnold Blits just lets it happen on the spot. His trainings are intensive, but create impressive results.
