"We wanted to shape a more positive and productive team dynamic. And we got so many great, action-oriented ideas and tools out of this masterclass! What I loved the most was that there was always space to work on my specific questions. Tobi didn't just stick to the agenda — he took the time to meet and address our real-life challenges!"
Head of Fundraising & Communication, Stiftung Stay
“I loved how structured and action-oriented this masterclass was. I learned so many new tools and inspirations — and only as much theory as necessary. All of this helped us make the changes we hoped for: deeper relationships and much more transparency and accountability in our team!”
Founder & CEO, aucobo GmbH
“Remote work had stretched us to our limits: we had too many meetings, our old ways of communicating and collaborating didn't work anymore, and we were missing a clear direction. Working with Tobi solved many of these problems for us: our teamwork became more focused and calm, our collaboration improved, and our meetings turned out to be fun! Also, I loved having access to all of those ready-to-use templates and resources! Made things much easier!”
Member of the Board, W11K
“If you're serious about this — if you want to build a culture of feedback, mutual respect and appreciation — then there's no better option than this masterclass. You'll make real progress with your team and build an amazing culture.”
CEO, OCX GmbH
"Our team has grown pretty fast... much faster, unfortunately, than our structure and relationships within the team! But this masterclass has been a great help for us: we became more efficient and — at the same time — built a much stronger team spirit!"
People & Culture Manager, premano
“I was scratching my head on how to build a shared, healthy culture — especially as a new and fully remote team. And I know I would *still* be scratching my head if I hadn't taken the masterclass. It helped us build more trust and transparency; provide more flexibility for everyone; and create a much greater sense of community and commitment in the team. I can't recommend it enough!”
CEO & Co-Founder, Fryd
“If you're looking to build an open, human culture in your company, you should join this masterclass.”
Head of People & Culture, treeva GmbH
“The program helped us build a more connected team, with better communication and healthier, more robust structures. Apart from the program itself, I loved that Tobi went beyond the curriculum with us: thanks to his rich experience, we could bring our own, unique challenges to the table and always received unique, individual solutions.”
People & Culture Specialist, pragmatic industries
“As a relatively new leadership team, we were looking for a healthy balance: between remote work and the office; between micromanagement and trust. And indeed, working together as a leadership team has improved tremendously after taking the masterclass! Apart from that, we learned a ton of new tools and frameworks. I was especially grateful that we received so many ready-to-use templates / workbooks / resources: this saved us so much time when we actually implemented all of the changes!”
Head of Development Cooperation, Stiftung Stay
"With his experience and empathy, Tobi is a perfect partner for those who want to better understand themselves and their team. If you want to develop a modern, productive and stress-free way to work with your team, I can't recommend this masterclass enough!"

This program is designed and led by experienced founders and leaders with our own, proven track-records.
We’ve been building successful teams and companies for almost 20 years.
The curriculum is full of hands-on tools and frameworks — from our own experience as CEOs and founders.
You can bring real cases and challenges from your own team. We're here to help and coach you.
We’ve been building remote teams since 2010.
We teach the underlying principles because they're critical to the success of any modern organization. Not just those without an office.
Here’s a sneak peek into the topics we cover inside the masterclass. You can see that we go way beyond the usual “cookie-cutter” leadership and team building topics.
Every month (with a break in August and December) we pick a single topic to focus on.
This guarantees that we can explore it in depth – and that you have enough time to implement it and make a real, lasting impact with your team.
We explain why things matter, we provide context and even scientific studies.
But most importantly, we offer practical tools and frameworks. And we deliver them complete with templates, worksheets and agendas so you're ready to implement them in your own teams, instantly.
Most of our members don't have a lot of time. That's why we designed Building Better Teams for people with a busy schedule.
We're careful to keep live sessions to a minimum.
And if you miss one, you can always watch the recording later.

Let’s face it: there might be a month where you just have too many other obligations. We’ll make it work nonetheless and schedule everything to fit your individual needs and reality.
Move from an incidental and haphazard culture to one that is carefully and deliberately designed — to grow, support, and last.
Minimize stress, conflicts and misunderstandings in your team. And nurture better communication, deeper relationships, and stronger commitment.
Gain confidence in yourself as a leader. Achieve ambitious goals without sacrificing a positive, collaborative, and people-first culture.
"You can be successful in business and treat people with respect and kindness. There’s no conflict in this. We can achieve both!"
I've been an entrepreneur and a CEO for almost 20 years. During this time, I started 4 companies, made 2 of them profitable, and successfully sold my last one. Together with an amazing team, I grew this last one to over 100,000 customers in companies like Apple, Google, and Amazon before it was acquired in 2021.
I started introducing remote work already in 2010 (and found ways to actually make it work).
I’m also a trained and certified mindfulness teacher, donate 10 % of my income to charity every year – and am openly addicted to green tea.
"A great team gives a company superpowers. You can build it by implementing people first culture and embodying this principle daily."
In my journey as an entrepreneur of more than 15 years, I've built a broad range of businesses: from services to software products, from tiny teams to more than 150 people, from bootstrapped to VC-backed, and one with 10 international locations.
Over many years, I've also consulted and mentored countless founders and leaders on their own journeys, currently focusing on everything GreenTech.
I’m an avid triathlete, climber and trail runner and love any kind of outdoor adventures.
This masterclass goes much deeper than a simple "team building course". The topics we cover will build a strong foundation — for a thriving team and a successful company.
Leadership For Culture
A strong, positive company culture is only possible with the right kind of leadership. Learn why “One-on-Ones” and “Agreements” are the most important tools in any leader’s tool belt — and how to master them. Because although many leaders know them, only few are using them correctly!
Remote Work Fundamentals
Building a remote team can be challenging — but also incredibly rewarding! Because the principles behind remote work can make organizations more flexible, productive, and resilient. Understand the common challenges that remote teams face — and learn the tips, tricks, and tools for building a remote team that thrives!
Focus + Flexibility
Teams become distracted, unfocused, and stressed if we don’t protect their time and attention. Learn to use time management on an organizational level to create a more flexible structure. Optimize for focus and deep work with tools like asynchronous communication.
The more socially connected a team is, the more successful it can be. Help your team increase the number and quality of their relationships. Continuously and reliably, through a thoughtfully designed process.
Research has shown what it takes to create high-performance teams: not only IQ points, but most of all psychological safety. Learn how to build an environment where your team can do their best work — by establishing trust, respect, and humility.
Communication serves many different purposes in teams: to discuss ideas, solve problems, keep everyone up-to-date, or simply connect as human beings... Discover a wide array of communication formats. And implement the ones your team needs to stay productive.
Hiring & Onboarding
Finding and attracting the right people for your team makes all the difference. Learn how to design a hiring process that’s reliable and predictable. So you can be sure to always find the right people for you — and avoid painful hiring mistakes.
Meetings, emails, chat messages: many teams find that their internal communication has taken over most of their schedule. Unwillingly, we’ve prioritized communication over focused work! Learn how to take back control and make focused work — not constant communication — your number one priority.
We can only interact competently when we know ourselves — as a group and as individuals. Help people learn more about each other and themselves. To make your collaboration more effective and frictionless.
Feedback is the basis for learning and improvement, both critical ingredients for a successful organization. Learn a step-by-step roadmap to introduce and foster feedback — to make it a regular, safe, and constructive habit in your team.
Stress + Resilience
A stressed team is not open to change — or high performance! Learn why stress is a $1 trillion problem. Understand the role it plays in your own organization. And take concrete, proven steps to reduce stress and build resilience in your team.
Spending time together, outside the office, holds tremendous potential for a team — but only if you carefully and intentionally design this experience! Learn what ingredients the perfect team offsite needs, how to compose a great agenda, and what mistakes you should avoid.
