About us surdek

We believe the best way to learn is through personal and shared group experiences. Through our services, we specialize in creating experiential learning spaces to spark change in people’s mindsets.

Learn as you go

Our approach focuses on continuous learning instead of success and failure. That means you’ll have space to try things without worrying about knocking the ball out of the park every time. The goal is to keep learning at every step of your path to change.

One size does NOT fit all

We go beyond cookie cutter formulas to look at what matters to each individual person and what their specific needs are. We help you identify what your challenges and your goals are, and then we personalize our coaching so you can get there.

Choose your own path

We believe that change is a journey that doesn’t always happen in a straight line. We support you on that journey by helping you get clarity with your team on what you want to accomplish together, understand the first steps you want to take, kickstart the process and much more.

How we got started on this journey

While working in software development, Steffan started getting an interest in helping people on his teams communicate better. That led him to work at a consulting company as an Agile coach. Getting training as a coach and doing transformational work inside an organization, he began noticing the “Moses effect”.

He was the expert consultant that came in and parted the waters for an Agile transformation to happen, but when he would leave, everything would go back to how it was before. This shifted his interest to creating real and sustainable change, as well as developing more open, authentic and conscious leaders.

Since then, his passion for leadership and co-creativity, as well as his extensive experience have led Steffan to successfully coach leaders in medium and large organizations in aviation, insurance, banking, travel, telecommunications, and more.
