We love People & Tech.

We believe in the profound power of emotional skills. That’s why we help employees develop strong deep skills through personalized learning and coaching programs with precisely matched coaches, formats and content. To make the entire organization more human, effective and sustainable.

Make Work
More Human

Our Mission

We want to bring Deep Skills to the entirety of the workforce. Because we believe that emotional skills are the key to professional success in the future. That deep skills like empathy, cooperation and mental strength make the difference. And that digital coaching and learning will become a lifelong companion for professionals and executives. To successfully meet the challenges of an uncertain and dynamic future.

We put people at the center of everything we do. With all their strengths, weaknesses and emotions. We use digital tools, intelligent algorithms and data-based knowledge transfer to develop people in a targeted manner and achieve sustainable transformation success.

Our Team

Our team consists of experienced coaches, HR-developers and digital experts. We are united by our passion for deep skills, personal development and technology – and our common goal: to establish a people-centric leadership culture in companies and to actively help shape a more humane working world.

C-Level meets Street Credibility

Miriam Mertens was Telekom Vice President and Peter Goeke made it into the German singles charts as a rock singer and songwriter before they both founded their rapidly growing learning platform together. With their Deep Skills, they take Emotional Intelligence out of the “throwing a ball around” group room and bring it into the middle of society as a hard-hitting and powerful success strategy. They want to talk about that and much more. Gladly with you!
