January 2nd 2014: Founding of Götz Global Leadership & Partners
After 23 years of guiding people and organizations in the unfolding of their culture code, Götz Global Leadership emerged as the next form of manifesting Evolutionary Leadership. It is a result of many inspiring talks to leaders, experiences made on travels throughout the world, and of a deep interior journey to who I am.
As Marcus, a visionary soul and friend says: “Connect your dots”. And in this way, I am deeply connected to my dots of this leadership journey, and I discover again and again why I am doing what I am doing. I am grateful and curious about what wants to unfold next and where I will be needed to serve my purpose and the collective purpose.

1989 until 1992: Studying in Paris, Oxford and Berlin
Born and raised in the suburbs of Munich, Germany, I was always curious to see, explore and go out into the world – a perspective my father shared with us 4 children in the family. Which is why, I decided not only to study in Germany but to live and study abroad. I chose Paris, Oxford and Berlin for a solid foundation in International Business Management Know-How. But more than that I had the opportunity to breathe in different cultures and perspectives – just different ways of consciousness that make the world go round. And, I met some of my best friends.
1991: Birth of my son Scott
1991: A personal letter from Sir Richard Branson to my wedding
Following our intuition is what unites us and a real amazing story. A story good to creat a cinema movie about, as I met my then future-wife as a student on a Virgin flight from London to Miami on February 14th 1991. Only months later we were pregnant with Scott, my son, and Sir Richard Branson gave us a honeymoon present of two return first class tickets London Miami. Thanks again, we really enjoyed it!
My father is a global traveller with a very open mind and he always taught me to see the world through the eyes of people where they live. When I was invited by our japanese friends in July 1991 to come to Japan, I instantly booked the flight to explore their culture.

“You can not stop Stefan”
Water, nature, mountains and the sea, these are my elements. I enjoyed freedom and explored the here and now – until school started. It is as if you wanted to tame the lion inside – as leo is my zodiac sign quite a hard job. However, already at school in second class the teacher would formulate: “No way you can ever stop Stefan” – So here I am 50 years later and starting to becoming who I am.
1968: Big Projects are of interest to me
I always enjoyed big projects.
