Beschreibung / Abstract

Like no other professional athlete, Dr. Wladimir Klitschko took care of his career outside the world of competitive sports while he still was an active boxer. He founded K2 Promotions, the KLITSCHKO Foundation, and the KLITSCHKO Management Group. In 2016 he even created a degree program at the prestigious University of St. Gallen in Switzerland, in which he teaches the basics of Self- and Challenge Management. KLITSCHKO Ventures, the holding company in which all his business activities are incorporated, followed.
Dr. Wladimir Klitschko knows that a professional athlete has many skills from which the world of business can profi t. It is his special talent to regard problems as challenges and accept them as a part of life. In this book, he fi nally explains how he does it. Now it's your turn to use his methods to make your business succeed, to master your personal challenges, and to take charge of your work and life!

"There are some people in this world who simplyare fantastic role models. They are people who are consistent and have great power of persuasion; people who are persistent and become successful because of this. This is the kind of person I consider Wladimir Klitschko to be."
Bill McDermott, SAP SE CEO
