Winner’s Best Practice

Leadership is about people. People are unique. Therefore, my leadership best practice for you is to get to know your team mates individually and on multiple levels. Not only skills and traits are relevant and impacting the workplace. Personal motivators and values, dreams and desires are equally important. Invest in your relationship and trust with these people, listen to them and couple your ideas with transparency and co-creation. Shape the environment together and tailor it to these specific people instead of looking for the one and only “silver bullet”. You will be amazed by the results.

Quick Facts


Dominik’s vision is to help people come to work with a smile on their faces. This is true both for his own teammates and his customers’ employees. He started in a corporate startup as Scrum Master for three teams and quickly encountered the myriad of mistakes that can be learned from in this role. His impact was huge for the teams, and he realized that leadership is his passion. Caring for people and results helped him succeed as an Agile Coach, subsequently empowering many teams. Today, he continues to live positive leadership with his own company (ValueRise Consulting) and team.
