Martin Laschkolnig unites East and West, Business and Buddhism, Controlling and Meditation. His hunger for inner growth made him go to India after completing a Western business education. For three years he studied Buddhist philosophy with Tibetan monks and then peak performance, energy psychology and personal development in the USA. He has been using all of this for over 20 years in his companies. To date he has inspired audiences on 4 continents to a more fulfilling life with more joy, inner peace and better results in business and private life through his lectures, seminars and programs.

Martin Laschkolnig is the founder and director of the Institute for the Development for Potential in Linz, Austria. He is an expert on success, self-esteem and self-confidence and their impact on managers and their teams. With his compelling and inspiring presentations and seminars in German and English, he has already inspired audiences in Europe, North America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

Due to a deep personal crisis, everything that had happened so far was questioned. In an intense process Martin Laschkolnig came to a deep inner peace he had never known before. This deep experience prompted him to focus even more on how we can release blockages, accept life and shape our lives in peace with ourselves from a position of lightness and flow. His new program “Surrender to the Flow of Life” is the result of how you too can reach this state. This program is currently only available in German and will be soon released in English as well.

As the Austrian representative of the International Council for Self-Esteem, he has a wealth of expertise in building an environment that promotes self-confidence and self-esteem – in family, school, business or society.
