The managing director of IONTO wants to improve his leadership skills, communication skills and his own appearance. The one solution, the one leadership style, does not exist. So how does effective individual leadership succeed?

This leads to the following goals for IONTO Health & Beauty GmbH:

  • Improvement of leadership and communication skills as well as the own appearance

  • Knowledge and application of tools and concepts for leadership in specific situations


The learning program “Good Boss – confident and successful people leadership” is specially designed to meet the challenges of IONTO. In this training, participants learn a lot about dealing with employees as well as about different leadership styles.

It was particularly important for IONTO to complete a learning program that not only provides “standard answers” or theories, but also gives room for discussion. Our product troodi Hybrid offers the perfect solution: virtual presence coaching and perfect fitting online learning programs alternate at regular intervals.

Our trainers were in constant contact with IONTO and were always available for questions and personal feedback – this was seen as a great addition to the digital learning programs. Independent online learning and individual coaching – a perfect combination for IONTO.

“Troodi has managed to create very well structured and high quality e-learning content. The excellent professional and personal competence of the coach, who was able to deepen and illustrate the previously learned theoretical approaches on the basis of situations experienced in practice, make me highly recommend the product”.


How do you deal with specific situations in everyday working life? These and similar questions were addressed in the personal workshops that took place between the independent online learning units. The numerous self-reflection exercises helped the managing director of IONTO to explain everyday challenges and experiences in managing employees in a very accessible model. It also helped him to classify personalities.
