Awesome victories and chastening defeats: Sailing professional Dominik Neidhart has experienced both. Three times he participated in the America's Cup - the most prestigious and challenging sailing competition of the world. In New Zealand his team Alinghi celebrated an unexpected and passionate victory - as outside broker. The further Swissman handball professional player and ex-medicine student was responsible for the role of the "grinder" on the Alinghi - as fast as possible he had to put the sail by cranking into the right direction. Without clear communication, discipline and strength not possible. On board you have to evidence the ability to work in a team, to get along with people from different cultures on a very tight space and to lean on each other.

On the sea Neidhart learnt plenty: a little mistake of one person can bring the whole team into danger. Sense of responsibility and fun in teamwork and the awareness of being an important part of the whole, appreciation for the other team members and their function as well as an assignment of tasks and the overwhelming will for winning were the factors that made the team so successful.

Global Topspeaker Dominik Neidhart transfers his experience from sailing onto employees - and leader teams in business units. As owner of an consulting agency he knows the following: everybody who wants to head a team has to know the method and the aim, needs to make great demands on each team member and on himself and has to be aware of his role always. His lecture „go hard or go home!“ shows lively Neidhart`s five step concept from the challenger to the winning type, illustrates the most important factors for an outstanding team and the cornerstones for an effective cooperation. 

Neidhart`s enthusiasm for his sport and his topic is catching. His style of lecturing is affected by ease and charm and illustrates - besides impressive pictures - common success and unlimited exultation as well as lived values, leader personality, knowledge management and communication culture. In whole Europe Neidhart is acclaimed therefore.
