ABOUT Punktschluss [ pʊŋktʃlʊs ]

… is an ALL-FEMALE Leadership Development & Coaching Consultancy firm, with an international network of highly-experienced, outstanding women, that offers bespoke interventions and transformational programs for its clients.

Punktschluss [ pʊŋktʃlʊs ]

Literally translated from German, “Punkt” stands for “full stop” or “period”, and “Schluss” stands for “conclusion”, “end” or “enough“.

The phrase is used to “make a point”, to “end a discussion or quarrel” which is turning in circles, to encourage moving on. It also means “no more BS”, calling for authenticity, sincerity, willingness and openness to transform.

Punktschluss has became a loan word to boost the awareness that something needs to end to allow to move forward and/or to shift. ….

At Punktschluss, true to our inspiration name, we catalyze our clients to make shifts happen.

We generate new narratives for you!

We un-stuck you.
