Who we are and what we do

 Gevers Consulting & Training is a  multinational consultancy located near Hamburg in northern Germany and Cape Town, South Africa. Our Empowerment Leadership Trainings take place in Europe, the U.S., the Middle East or South Africa.  Most of our Inhouse trainings are based in Germany where we offer a wide spectrum that covers anything from corporate health to basic introduction to the German Works Council Constitution Act (BetrVG) . We have access to a large network of trainers and cooperation partners.

Our philosophy 

We believe that exercise, the mental attitude and nutrition are the keys to a sustainable corporate philosophy. If all employees and leaders in a company can be won over to participate in this power-building concept, the positive changes and effects are manifold. Employees are more motivated and this in the end gives the company that competitive edge.

  Our holistic health and power concept

Power B

Body movement is a key to healthy living. It is the one major element that determines a balanced physical and mental constitution. More and more medical research is concluding that exercise is much more than we realise. It is not only an anti-depressant but influences us on many subtle levels. Our experience is that the ancient body arts such as yoga, taiji and qi gong are especially beneficial when practised regularly. Our skeletal system is strengthened, heart and circulatory system kept in balance and muscle tissue strengthened. Our objective is to integrate such exercises in a daily routine both at home and on the job, realigning both on a mental and body level. 

Power Mind

We are proponents of positive psychology such as "reframing". In its simplest form positive psychology is defined as focusing on what is right with people rather than what is wrong. It is about cultivating that which is best within you and to enhance what is positive at work, play and in the daily-interaction with the people around us. In our trainings and face-to-face mentoring we try to pinpoint the "other perspective" - seeing the positive side of things. A positive mindset and communication has a positive effect on the world around us, especially if we are dealing with people on a day-to-day basis such as in sales jobs.
"One of the things psychologists used to say was that if you are depressed, anxious or angry,
you couldn't be happy. Those were at opposite ends of a continuum. I believe that you can be suffering
or have a mental illness and be happy - just not in the same moment that you're sad." Martin Seligman
Power Food

Nutrition is the third pillar of our trainings. Most of us are eating foods that are no long nourishing us and giving us the power we need to face the day-to-day challenges. The body has some 70 billion cells that interact with each other and keep our body working. For that we need power foods that keep us in top form. Most industrially-produced foods however, are no longer nourishing us. Even most so-called healthy foods have far less of the nutrients they had two decades ago, largely because of soil depletion and long transportation routes. The human brain makes up only about two per cent of our body weight but uses about 20 per cent of our body energy. When we do much travel, have little sleep and eat mainly "junk foods" we will not have the energy that we need to make the right decisions. By adopting mindful eating habits and focusing on real power foods you can positively change your feeling of well being and live a life at a higher energy level.
