  • Main Principles

    Idea Addressed

    Our business world is dramatically changing. Companies, especially large ones, need to adapt to four major changes happening all at once:

    1. Globalization (externally)
    2. Team Building (internally)
    3. Cultural Sensitivity (externally)
    4. Collaboration (internally)

    Universal Principal

    In our world today a successful leader needs to be a life-long learner.


    For a Diamonds Formation Leader as life-long learner to succeed, you need to master the tricky balance of authentic self, style flexibility, cultural/diversity sensitivity, and global demands/opportunities.

    Future Solution

    Often we know that we need to change to succeed. If we have been around for some time, we have this feeling of need to change because times are changing and we need to adjust. If leadership is a new thing and we catch ourselves applying the things that worked in management, we realize quickly that most of it doesn’t really work in leadership.


    By learning the secrets to becoming a “Diamond Formation Leader” and “Developing your Diamond Formation Team”, you will succeed in the age of globalization and culturally sensitive collaboration.


    That will make you part of the tiny fraction of winners who succeed when everybody else is struggling!

  • About axel

    22 years in the Air Force, 15 years in Germany and 7 years in the United States flying European made Tornado fighter jets as well as F-111 jets for the USAF.

    My Story

    I was a flight instructor, flight school commander, and as the last assignment the senior project manager for the development of a flight training center in the high deserts of New Mexico. You could say I saw my fair share of military flying and Diamond Formations.

    I was always someone who wanted to do things and especially help others.


    My life long motto has been: Helping others help themselves become successful. I did that in the military when teaching newbies how to fly – in the classroom, in the simulator and ultimately in the plane. After my military career, I received a green card and was hired as an executive in a software company mainly based on the relationships I had formed during the building of the flight training center in New Mexico.


    In 2005 I started my own company with the goal to help as many leaders in business as I possibly can. Over the last 11+ years I have served many leading employees in companies including Bayer, CISCO, First Republic Bank, Boeing, State Farm Insurance, Merck, AMA, etc.


    What I saw and experienced has deepened my belief that you, as modern leaders need to change your focus if you want to be ready for the new world of business in the 21st century. That’s what becoming a Diamond Formation leader addresses.
