The Schulz von Thun Institute for Communication

The Schulz von Thun Institute for Communication was founded by Prof. Dr. Friedemann Schulz von Thun to maintain the publication and development of his teachings post retirement from the University of Hamburg. Apart from offering training courses for various target groups, the Schulz von Thun Institute also develops highly customized training courses. Moreover, the institute offers lectures, individual coaching as well as conflict management support for public and private enterprises in Germany and abroad (also in English). For more than 40 years, Prof. Dr. Schulz von Thun has been a coach and trainer for both private and public institutions. His publications are regarded as standard works for communication psychology. His best-known models are the “Square of Communication” and the “Inner Team”. His models were made both accessible and practicable through his books; (“Miteinander reden”) as well as through seminars; always with the aim of creating an authentic connection between professional excellence and humaneness. The team at the Schulz von Thun Institute for Communication consists of over 30 highly experienced trainers who have been organizing lectures, courses, consultations, and team development, based on Schulz von Thun communication psychology for many years. Each one of them is also distinguished as an author of their own publications.
