Exclusive Insights into the Success Strategy of André Henning

Insights from the world champion coach of the men's national hockey team

In around a month's time, the Summer Olympics will begin in Paris. In the run-up, we had the opportunity to speak to André Henning, the world champion coach of the national men's hockey team, about dealing with pressure, building teams and his unique training methods.

"Experiencing special moments together "

It's not just preparing for major tournaments such as the World Championships or Olympic Games that drives André Henning, but also working with people and helping them achieve their goals and dreams. Seeing how happy his team is about their success motivates him time and again.

With the men's national hockey team, he achieved impressive success at the 2023 World Cup - even though he had been in office for less than a year at the time. He talks to us about his special training methods and how it is possible to mould a group of athletes into a successful team.

"My approach is to see what the team needs from me right now"

In order to be successful, André Henning first thoroughly analyses the team and then develops a tailor-made concept. It is important to him that the team has a say in many areas. "We want to be an agile team that can react immediately under pressure," is Henning's goal.

Henning emphasises the importance of dealing with conflicts correctly. Allowing conflicts and communicating them properly can turn a team into a successful team. He now even actively looks for conflicts with his team, because learning from them ultimately helps the team move forward.

Henning got into hockey through his parents, who both worked as hockey coaches. Through persistent persuasion of national league and national players, he first became a coach in the national hockey league and later a national coach.

André Henning as a keynote speaker

In his lectures, Henning transfers his training methods and findings to everyday professional and business life. He believes that almost everything is transferable if you put it in the right context. What is particularly nice is that he always uses vivid images from sport, making the examples very catchy and easy to understand.
