Your training contents

In this seminar you will learn how to counter every remark and attack with confidence.

We teach you all the basic principles of repartee and help you to act on them. In this training you will receive a variety of techniques with the 26 HPS joker cards. You will discover which of the methods suit you, and which you will always have at hand in the future.

Convey sovereignty
You know how to use your body. With body language and use of voice, you radiate natural strength.

Strong arguments
You argue your own point of view clearly. You will be understood.

Gaining respect
Thanks to your replica, you quickly get back on eye level instead of defending yourself.

Get far with charm
You can take the wind out of the sails of some attacks with a pinch of humor and thus save the mood for everyone.

Gaining topic leadership
You eloquently manage to fend off attacks by redirecting them to topics that are more important to you.

Skillfully saying "no"
You succeed in refusing requests so elegantly that you and your counterpart save face.

Always calm
You take attacks casually and deal with them playfully. You are at peace with yourself and therefore less vulnerable.

Strengthened from the training
Your training is the perfect place to try things out. Develop the courage to apply numerous new techniques.

The HPS training methods

  • Your team for high intensity
    Two trainers, two rooms for a maximum of twelve participants enable group splits and guarantee you the highest individual learning success.

  • Doing instead of just listening
    The HPS didactics combined with two trainers ensure: You practice actively 80% of the training time!

  • Feedback without stress
    Thanks to our multi-component feedback, you receive meaningful feedback without lengthy feedback rounds.

  • Specialists with know-how
    HPS trainers are communication specialists, not generalists. Our team of trainers knows exactly which techniques will help you get to your next level.

  • Experience yourself
    A change of perspective often helps. In our trainings you hear and see yourself using recorded videos - this enables you to gain unique insights.

  • Enjoy your individual progress
    Progress, achieve success, have fun - with our proven HPS method. Our Google reviews prove it.

  • Learning from real life
    HPS trainings are business trainings. You do not train on the basis of "feel-good" topics, but using topics from your daily practice.

  • Everything blended
    Thanks to our blended learning platform, you always have all the tools with you - even long after the seminar.

  • Optional: Learning on the job
    We develop your team over several months and integrate learning perfectly into the daily work routine.


  • Increased quick wit means increased assertiveness. Your own agendas get priority.

  • Conflicts are expensive. Quick-wittedness leads to faster conflict resolution and thus reduces costs.

  • Being quick-witted with customers brings in cash. Your employees represent your prices and services more confidently.

  • Regular attacks lead to frustration. Dealing with them casually and wisely leads to improved cooperation among all.

  • The ability to say "no" increases focus and reduces conflicting goals within the team.

  • You appear more self-confident, represent your team, your manager and your company better to the outside world.

I took part in the rhetorical power chamber training in March 2023. The trainer (Oliver) answered all my questions very professionally and addressed my individual needs during the training. The co. trainer (Christina) was also very attentive and gave valuable feedback on each of the participants within the two training days and actively supported the group throughout the duration. I am very satisfied with the training and would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their presentation skills and handling difficult situations (while presenting).
