We are a "boutique" HR consulting company founded in 2002, based in Milan and with an international scope. We deliver with passion scouting, coaching, acting coaching, diversity&inclusion, special projects.

Our clients are international groups and Italian companies that share our philosophy: combining our human touch with a solid network in the sectors in which we are active and a strong methodological rigor.

We are often defined by our customers as innovators, capable of a real "lateral thinking": it is a compliment that we regularly get, and of which we are most proud.

Our team has extensive experience in international scouting of C-levels, executives, fashion designers and high-potential middle managers: each of our partners is specialized in a different area.
Our scouting team has a solid international experience as generalists; we have a strong expertise in fashion, luxury, lifestyle, media, communication, digital. We are recognized as one of the major players in the sector at European level.
Great attention in the briefing phase, effectiveness in the choice of the sources we use, significant relational network, thorough analysis of customer needs, profound knowledge of business, psychological attention: these are the key elements that explain the success of our scoutings and the very good reputation we have.

We are different:

We speak the same language as our client companies, because we fully understand their mechanisms and processes, as well as their markets. We like to work as consultants of our customers, helping them perform better.

We are characterized by rigor, method in scouting and our "thinking out of the box": we dedicate a special, sartorial attention to each scouting project.

In our vision, executive coaching is an integral part of a company's change management processes: change is achieved only by working on the people who are its protagonists.

Coaching is a real “managerial SPA”, an individual moment for the exchange of ideas, sharing, reflexion, self-enhancement. Our coaching programs are effective, pragmatic, and set with clear and realistic goals.

Our methodology is based on the synergic work of a team of coaches; this approach is the key to the excellent track record of success we have in executive coaching: our customers are our best endorsers.

We are different:

We offer a significant range of training offerings in coaching. We have specific executive coaching programs, with a proprietary methodology, dedicated to executives.
We offer team coaching programs, and programs that mix team coaching and individual coaching for middle managers and high potentials, also using the “Space for Listening” methodology.

We were among the first in Italy to offer to our clients specific coaching programs dedicated to D&I (Diversity&Inclusion). We also offer CTA Career Transition Coaching programs. Lang & Partners is an Organizational Member of the Association for Coaching International, London.

For an executive who follows a coaching program with us often a key priority is the need to communicate more impactfully, both in one-to-many and in peer to peer contexts; the objective is to fully enhance expressive performance in social networks, in video , with team and stakeholders.

This is why we always include some sessions of acting coaching in all our coaching programs, to maximize the communication skills of our coachees.

We underline that this is not a public speaking course, but a real crash communication skills program.

We are different:

We have a proprietary methodology that is effective at improving the communication style of our coachees, both technically and strategically. The first essential step is our communicative check-up; a real scan of the coachee communication skills aimed at identifying strenghts and weaknesses.

The technical approach allows to refine, through exercises and simulations, the paraverbal and non-verbal parameters. The strategic approach aims at consolidating the coachee argumentative strategy: we improve negotiation communication, selling skills and persuasive dynamics.

Our strong expertise and our significant relational network have often been made available to our customers for special projects, helping them as business consultants.

Some examples of projects we have worked on in recent years:

  • we worked as consultants for a TV program dedicated to fashion: we used our relational network relationships to involve some of the hottest names in international fashion
  • we collaborated with a private banking company, which we consulted as business advisors in their approach to the world of luxury; the project proved to be a success in terms of image and business
  • we consulted some of the most promising emerging fashion designers as "business accelerator coach" in their contacts with the business community and with investors, helping them in their business growth.

Since our foundation back in 2002 we have always declared that "We value diversity": diversity for us is not a trend, but a founding value of our way of being and doing business.

Enhancing diversity and inclusion means helping our customers to do their business better, to have a greater rate of innovation and to better face global markets.

The well-being of people, through the enhancement of their specific differences, is one of our strongest ethical values.

We are different:

We provide specific seminars and webinars on the topic of diversity&inclusion, which we integrate with individual diversity coaching programs that work on overcoming the unconscious biases we all have. We help companies strategically think and implement their D&I Board and D&I Council.

Our clients build, thanks to our diversity coaching programs, long lasting results in terms of inclusivity. We have partnered with ValoreD, on gender equality, and are partners of Parks Liberi&Uguali, which promotes LGBT diversity in companies.
