Johannes Gutberlet

Been with cormens since 2018

Consulting focus:
Leadership and change

This is Johannes: Zen master on the outside, thoughts racing on the inside. He has mastered the art of speaking without wanting to set the tone. This is how he helps people to come up with the solution themselves. For a long time, the managing partner at cormens led people, now managers are guided to him. This is because Johannes only speaks when he really has something to say, which is why he has found a perfect hobby in hunting. Johannes has the opportunity to keep an open ear for new thoughts out there in nature.
