Our goals

Strengthening the Strengths! – Making good, safe decisions while dealing with complex tasks!

Highly efficient communication, substantiated decision-making, following a safe course of action – these have been the pillars of a safety-driven industry culture in aviation for decades. This culture continues to be maintained with great commitment and is considered to be  highly successful. Many other industry sectors and service areas nowadays adapt it as a standard and align their operational business as well as their organizational set-up accordingly.

Whether in the cockpit of an airliner, on the bridge of a container ship, within an emergency room, on an oil rig, or at the control center of a production unit – everywhere alike people accept substantial responsibility in accomplishing complex tasks. A common ground is applicable to all: The principles of human interaction are transferable and safety-minded behavioral strategies can be acquired and trained. Adapting the safety strategies, error prevention methods and risk management skills derived from aviation and applying them to other industries is the core competence of InterPersonis.

InterPersonis follows a consistent holistic approach and considers the individual as an inseparable part of the overall organization. InterPersonis doesn‘t view employees as a necessary means to an end, but rather as the intrinsic pivoting point of every company.

Therefore we have made it our job to systematically scrutinize behavioral and operational patterns on the level of  individual employees, teams, business units, departments and entire companies. This approach allows precise identification of vulnerability and risk potentials in organization and processes. While doing so, our target is to strengthen existing strong points and minimize shortcomings within the organizational context and individuals alike.

The training programs and interactive platforms of InterPersonis are based on the philosophy that change can only be achieved through self-reflection. Only the learning effect of self-reflection efficiently opens up the mind to accept strategies and techniques and implement them in daily routines. This way we achieve a sustainable, positive outcome for the entire organization.
