“Hogan is a tool that is easy to understand, well applicable, and more equitable than other methods in terms of a person´s individuality. It should be emphasized that Hogan not only captures identity, but also reputation: how am I likely to be perceived by others in calm and tense times? This has a high relevance for the increasing rate of change in companies. Overall, the Hogan provides a very good basis for providing practical advice to executives.
The certification by René Kusch was conducted in a very sound and practical way. The examples were very catchy and repeatedly referred to current topics of Generali in Germany, so that we were well prepared for the Hogan use in everyday life. My team and I are enthusiastic about Hogan and RELEVANT and would recommend him at any time.”
