„I’ve found my calling. Being an author, speaker and trainer, I motivate people to adopt new ways of thinking, new approaches and actions for a happier and more successful life. I propel people forward. I’m able to help them succeed in achieving substantial positive and better results every day. I love it!“
Letting go more often, more focus
Markus Jotzo wants to see people excel. That works best when they try things they can’t do – yet, and it is exactly why his lectures and books give his audience and readers more courage to show circumspection and farsightedness – and he encourages free thinking and coming up with new ideas.
He has always been a lively, committed spirit – whether in the aid project for civil war refugees in former Yugoslavia – initiated by him, as initiator and founding member of the student club AIESEC during his year abroad in the US or as a founding member of the alumni club of his university in the US.
After studying business administration, he held various management positions as a manager in marketing and sales at the international Unilever Group. He had both very good bosses who got a lot out of him as well as bad bosses, who forced him to clear many obstacles from his path.
Inspired by both positive and negative leadership examples, Markus Jotzo created a burning desire to develop solutions for how good leadership works.
More courage and more stamina
In 2005, Jotzo, who was born in Göttingen, became self-employed as a speaker and trainer in the city of Hamburg. In addition to practical knowledge and concrete tips, he opened up new perspectives that made his international audience think deeply. The result of all the activities of his company “Markus Jotzo Leadership Development“: The necessary motviation and the courage to embrace change.
How does Markus Jotzo do it? He mastered the successful combination of charm and provocation. He uses that to incite to let go of the insignficant and the audience gathers new energy and strength for essential things – and not just the managers.
More energy and strength
Family, courage, stamina and self-assertion is something Markus Jotzo has in personal life as well. He played handball for twenty years, and now he crosses his limits by going mountain biking in his spare time.
His children keep the caring family man constantly busy, too. He also proves his stamina with another one of his hobbies: music. He really likes to party away when he attends concerts of his favorite band “The Boss Hoss“.
Markus Jotzo generated media attention in the summer of 2016 during his journey from Hamburg to the Zugspitze. What was so special about it? He traveled without a single cent in his pocket. Find out more here.
A climate-neutral Business
Climate-neutral label energy and power are particularly close to his heart, and not only when it comes to people, but also regarding the environment. It is why he, his family and his company live CO2-neutral. Since 2012 Markus supports a climate protection project, through which all emissions produced by his family and business, are compensated.
