Innovative Learning-Tool launched - market demand already very high
Since numerous yeard NB Networks is working finishing the project of a scientifically accredited Tool for a sustainable learning process. The main problem of most trainings ending with any kind of test or similar is that in most cases the knowledge transfer is only focussed on passing the exam. Right after the exam the acquired knowledge disappears as fast as is has been acquired. Here is the main delta which the HR department has to handle: one the one hand passing formal exams is an important part to prove the success of a class taken. On the other hand the transfer of knowledge to use the newly acquired skills in practice is definitely the more important aspect for the business. NB Networks therefore has developed "KnowledgePulse". This tool will make you able to continuously learn and sustainably acquire knowledge without even to interrupt your daily business work. The RSA has accredited this tool on the basis of the newest scientific level of knowledge and learning methods. By doing so the characteristics and the whole tool itself is the first of its kind worldwide. Of course this application may also be fully used for MicroLearning. Content may be adapted to companies needs and learning targets. The design may be fully adapted to the corporate design of your enterprise.
The demand for the tool already is very high. Of course it will be no problem that we will make an appointment with you so you Account or Regional Manager will present this tool in a live environment at your company site. A detailed presentation of all possibilities will then be done to show you the full potential of this innovative tool.
We are looking forward to getting into contact with you.

We are very proud being awarded again.
NB Networks support social project for free healthy food in schoolks
In more and more cases - especially in families in socially difficult situations - young people attend school without breakfast at all. The rest of their day normally is dominated by wrong and unhealthy food in any meal taken. The consequences for the learning process of elementary knowledge are extreme.
NB Networks supports the "Familienschutzwerk" and the "Children kitchen" in Berlin. They intensively take care of children coming from these backgrounds and put strong emphasis and action on project which try to make free healthy food available in any public school. We also are an active part in this supporting process and hope for intensive additional help.
NB Networks again recommended by leading magazines

This month the magazines of "Creditreform" and "Personal" have underlined our quality by again recommending our services. The "Creditreform" is one of the leading magazines for corporate management where as the "Personal" is one of the most important magazines for HR in the german-speaking area.
"The sustainable high rate of recommendations by our clients has shown that we are on the right way. At the end of the day the factor of quality is the number one factor which decides about success or failure of any service. Our continuous process of constant improvement as well as the feedback of our clients clearly show that we are continuing this way to even more raise our standard of quality." said General Manager Marcel Klemet directly after the announcement of the recommendation.
NB Networks supports schuelerkarriere.de
Today the search for the right place for internships or dual studies is connected with enourmous efforts. There has been no clear central point for offerings and moreover the people who search had to go through big efforts to find the right offering. This has led to a loss of connection between the right offer and the right person.
The innovative idea of schuelerkarriere.de is the first portal which shows a clear solution for this problem. Additional partners already joined for future support.
"The idea of having a central point for offerings and interested persons shows enormous potential for us. Not only our efforts for searching and finding the right people for the right place but also our costs will reduce significantly in this important area of future investment." said Prof. Dr. Niels Brabandt after signing the partnership.

Throughout this cooperation - which was always based on the idea of provided leadership in practice - we succeeded in developing a great project. The fact that this project exactly matched the clients needs shows us that we are on the right way to excellence." said Niels Brabandt directly after getting to know that NB Networks won the bid.
The whole project is financed with a double digit million-euro-budget.
New Expansion confirmed
Due to the fact that already the actual year is a great success we decided to go further with expansions of NB Networks.

Football association of Hamburg officially reports about coaching with Niels Brabandt
During earlier News we already mentioned the coaching process which took place with Niels Brabandt and the talented group of referees.
Now this has been taken to a higher level and the Football association of Hamburg officially reports about this event on their website as it may be seen below (German only).
Lehrgang des Förderkaders des Verbands-Schiedsrichterausschuss Hamburg In St. Peter-Ording, 25. bis 27. September 2009
Am Freitagnachmittag machten sich die Mitglieder des Hamburger VSA-Förderkaders auf den Weg zu einem Wochenendlehrgang nach St. Peter-Ording. Am Lehrgang nahmen neben dem Leiter des Förderkaders, Christian Soltow, auch Lehrstabsmitglied Frank Behrmann sowie Personal-Coach und Ex-VSA-Schiedsrichter Niels Brabandt teil. Als Quartier wurde der „Campus Nordsee“ bezogen.
Noch am Abend wurde die aktuelle Lehr-DVD des DFB angeschaut und die geforderte einheitliche Regelauslegung der kniffligen Szenen im Gruppengespräch erarbeitet. Den Abschluss des Abends bildete ein ausgelassenes Fußballspiel der Teilnehmer in der Sporthalle auf dem Gelände.
Den Samstagvormittag gestaltete Niels mit einem praxisnahen und sehr interessanten Vortrag über die Wahrnehmung des Schiedsrichters in der Öffentlichkeit und die eigenen Möglichkeiten, auf diese Wahrnehmung Einfluss zu nehmen. Verdeutlicht wurde dies anhand von Videosequenzen aus Spielszenen, anhand derer die Außendarstellung des Schiedsrichters besprochen und Verbesserungsmöglichkeiten aufgezeigt wurden.
Am Nachmittag wurde das Persönlichkeitstraining in der Praxis fortgesetzt – im Hochseilgarten TAkelageNAturGArten (TANAGA) in St.Peter-Ording. Hier wurden mit dem Motivations- und dipl. Mentaltrainer Volker Crantz teambildende Maßnahmen durchgeführt. In luftiger Höhe von acht Metern mussten die Teilnehmer in schwierigen Übungen an und auch über ihre Grenzen gehen, wobei auch stets der Teamgedanke im Vordergrund stand. Der Nachmittag dort hat alle begeistert und das Wir-Gefühl der Mitglieder gesteigert.
Den Abend übernahm wieder Niels, der die Teilnehmer einen Fragebogen zum Thema Ausprägung von Persönlichkeitsmerkmalen (z.B. Konfliktfähigkeit und Verantwortungsbewusstsein) ausfüllen ließ. Mit diesem Test können die Eigenschaften der Schiedsrichter in greifbaren Zahlen dargestellt werden. Zudem sind zentrale Charakteristika für die Schiedsrichter-Persönlichkeit ausgearbeitet worden, welche klar messbar ausgewertet werden können. Das Resultat sind klare Kennzahlen, welche die nächsten Coaching- und Entwicklungs-Schritte klar aufzeigen und somit ein „Stochern und Herumcoachen im Nebel“ ohne klar vorhandene Zielsetzung verhindern.
Anschließend folgte eine Regelarbeit mit den Schwerpunkten Strafstoß und Strafgewalt des Schiedsrichters. Den Abschluss bildete das gemeinsame Anschauen des ZDF-Sportstudios mit den Bundesligapartien des Tages.
Am nächsten Morgen wurden die Erkenntnisse aus den ersten Beobachtungen der Saison besprochen und häufige Fehlerquellen analysiert. Nach dem Feedback und einem Lehrgangsresümee aller Teilnehmer erfolgte am Sonntagmittag die Rückreise nach Hamburg.
Primäres Ziel dieses Lehrganges war die Persönlichkeitsentwicklung unserer Hamburger Spitzennachwuchsschiedsrichter. Gewöhnlich befassen sich Schiedsrichter bei Lehrgängen mit Regelkunde sowie Auslegung, Sinn und Geist von Anweisungen. Je höher ein Schiedsrichter aber in einer Klasse mit seiner Laufbahn amtiert, umso eher sind diese Dinge verstanden. Andere Bereiche bleiben größtenteils komplett unbeleuchtet: hierzu zählt vor allem der Bereich Persönlichkeit. Zur Persönlichkeit zählen neben dem reinen Auftreten auch die mentale Fitness, mentale Stärke und Stressresistenz sowie der richtige Umgang mit Entscheidungen sowie Konflikten. Jedem ist bekannt, dass dies des Schiedsrichters täglich Brot auf dem Platz ist, und dennoch bleibt es oft bei wagen Aussagen wie „arbeitet an eurer Persönlichkeit“. Dies ist gerade für Nachwuchs-Schiedsrichter ein Ratschlag, welche nicht greifbar ist. Was soll ich konkret tun? Warum werde ich von Spielern so wahrgenommen wie ich wahrgenommen werde? Warum ist im Spiel X die Situation Y geschehen und ich habe diese nicht mehr kontrollieren können? Wie gehe ich mit externer Kritik um und wie stelle bzw. verarbeite ich Kritik an mich selbst? Dies sind Fragen, welche oft bewusst oder unbewusst auftreten und kaum bzw. gar nicht beantwortet werden können. Hier besteht der Ansatzpunkt, warum Niels Brabandt bei diesem Lehrgang hinzugezogen wurde.
Der mittlerweile dreißigjährige war bis vor einigen Jahren selbst Schiedsrichter im VSA Hamburg, bevor es ihn beruflich auf eine mobile Position zog und er eine Laufbahn in der freien Wirtschaft begann. Diese mündete in der Selbständigkeit mit einer nun eigenen Firma mit 71 Mitarbeitern. Seine Firma NB Networks betreut Kunden in den Bereichen Leadership, Business Development & Franchising, Marketing & Sales sowie IT. Des Weiteren befindet sich seine Doktorarbeit an der Harvard University im Finalstadium (Thema „Organizational Behavior and Leadership“). In diesem Zusammenhang wurde auch der beschriebene Fragebogen entworfen. Als Dozent ist er ferner an der HSBA (Hamburg School of Business Administration), einer der renommiertesten privaten Hochschulen Deutschlands, tätig.
Seit mehreren Jahren bereits betreibt seine Firma Sponsoring des VSA Hamburg und nun auch explizit des VSA -Förderkaders. Neben der Ausstattung mit Trainingsanzügen und Polo-Shirts hat er begonnen, auch sein erworbenes Know-How für die Schiedsrichterei weiterzugeben. In der Hoffnung auf eine weiterhin gute Zusammenarbeit bedankt sich VSA-Hamburg für Niels Engagement.
Ongoing Coaching of Talented Referees
As mentioned in our news before some weeks ago Niels Brabandt, owner of NB Networks, has spent a weekend with talented referees in St. Peter-Ording. This topic will now also be rolled out on a broader basis.
Request from other parts of the country already have arrived at our offices and moreover even press appeared to be seriously interested.
The area of "Personal Coaching" makes it possible for anybody taking part in it (and this is not limited to the job as a referee) to see any character traits as clear number. The test used here was developed by Niels Brabandt in cooperation with Harvard University.
With making character traits measurable it is now possible to get from the ambiguous and in most cases arbitrarily used "work on your personality and leadership skills" to a clear set of strengths and weaknesses. This set leads to a clear and unambiguous list of tasks and character traits to work on.
A concrete model to develop and to work on the own personality may then be put up which makes the Coaching process transparent for anybody taking part in it.

Niels Brabandt takes over coaching of upcoming pro referees
Soccer is one of the most known sports for having the referee unwillingly in the center of attention. Within less than seconds decision do not only have to be made. They have to communicated, transported and in most cases they must be "sold".
The aspect of Coaching is a critical factor of success in this case. Niels Brabandt, owner of NB Networks, has been awarded multiple times for his delivery in these areas of knowledge and his workshops. Moreover he has been and still is a referee in soccer by himself. In addition to that he has been member of the national selection of the best referees before starting his own business.

CeBit 2009 - extraordinary feedback
In 2009 the worldwide largest Microsoft Gold Partner for Learning Solutions decided not to be present at one of the Microsoft Partner booths. The idea of being presented by an own booth and booking me as being resposible as a speaker and for sales was created at the beginning of this year. It came out to be the most successful CeBit ever.
Joern Oelze (CEO Germany, Switzerland and Austria) said the CeBit 2009 was "a great outcome and a big success plus a true win for our corporate image". Nicola Stelling (Head of Marketing Germany, Switzerland, Austria) meant that "it was a really great CeBit and great show of you - thanks a lot, Niels".
The results were impressive: more qualified leads were created per day than during the last years throught the whole fair.
Top-level scoring and results after first national staff conference in Berlin
Just a few weeks ago I was book as speaker at the first national staff conference of the worldwide largest Microsoft Gold Partner for Learning Solutions.
One goal of the workshops I was leading there was to achieve sustainable growth in quality. Throughout interactive seminars, workshops and classes we worked through the Status Quo to concrete points of action which had to be put into action as soon as possible.
Some weeks after this training / consulting we now see that sustainabe growth is noticed. One location was already able to become number two in the internal network and number six worldwide in the overall network in delivering quality.
I am very happy and proud that all changes worked out so well and moreover that these concrete changes have been followed up by local management without exceptions.
Coaching & Mentoring for professional sports
I am a referee myself since years. Throughout this experience I know how important mental and motivational aspects in this sport are. Correct appearance, personality and the possibility to control any situation are the key aspects of success.
In Hamburg new ways of coaching and mentoring will now be started. Christian Soltow (former DFB/FIFA) agreed on a concept to drive the level of performance in the area to the next level. This training will be especially focussed on the best of the best referees who will have the future opportunity to qualify for the professional leagues.
Thank you very much for trusting me in this very sensitive area of mentoring and coaching.
I am looking forward to developing the whole to a complete level of performance in september 2009.
January 2009 confirms 2008 successes - measurable results succeed again
One of the most important aspect of management overall mentioned it the fact of "sustainability". In my role as Training & Implementation Manager of the worldwide largest Microsoft Gold Partner for Learning Solutions I delivered special customized training for all Trainers in the location of Cologne. The training took three complete days and measureable results were a consequence of it.
Directly after training the client satifsfactory rate went so high that in January 2009 the location of Cologne was ranked number 2 worldwide inside the network of Microsofts largest Gold Partner for Learning Solutions. The overall rating wordwide ranked Cologne on 6!
The own reliability as Trainer, Coach, Mentor and especially as a manager relies heavily on the factor of being able to deliver measureable results by yourself. A key focus of my work always is to underline that I am not only able to manage resources to perform but also to perform by myself.
The following statistics show that in Januar 2009 I have been scored by 308 client evaluations. In total I have been ranked number 1 worldwide for quality and quantity in training for the worldwide largest Microsoft Gold Partner for Learning solutions.
