The basis of our work

The Shine on Stage method combines a wide range of psychological approaches and tools and is based on systematic research and personal experience. It also combines a very practical and behavioral with a mental and spiritual approaches. For Shine on Stage, there is one basic principle: What works for our clients, is good. If you are interested in the roots of our method, here is some information.

Systematic Studies

We conducted 2 systematic studies that found a basic framework for our Shine-on-Stage success. They are both analysis of strategies used by successful people based on a methodology stemming from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).

Successful Phone Acquisition – Strategies and Skills

The study analyzes what people who successfully acquire new clients via phone have in common on several levels: Preparation, situational conditions, physical state, attitudes and inner perspective, behavioral patterns and tricks. Many of those results are directly applicable to situations where we want to sell, or convince someone of something.

Stage Presence – Analyzing the Best

The study combines the systematic observation of famous performers with the in-depth analysis of performance-related behavior and skills, thoughts and beliefs, identity and purpose of one of the best singers and stage experts: Thomas Quasthoff. This analysis yields concrete consequences for the teaching of stage presence according to the basic NLP principle “If one person can do something, any other person can learn it”.


The choice of the method happens as part of the process and in support of the goal to transform anything that stands between you and shining on stage.
