Christian Semlitsch, born as a son of immigrants in Switzerland, discovered his passion for martial arts quite early in his life, but since his parents could not afford training, he taught himself for years, reading, watching, implementing. Deeply inspired by the samurai stories of Akiro Kurosawa, he never let go the fascination of Samurai ever since. Today he is passionate about teaching Samurai Principles, impacting businesses and peoples lives.
What is so interesting about the Samurai today? Ask yourself: How was it possible that Japan, completely destroyed after WWII, recovered so fast and became a leading industry nation? The answer is: It were the Principles of the Samurai that influenced over 900 years peoples thinking, acting and way of living which were and still are setting the foundation of achieving outstanding success.
Christian believes that using and implementing the Samurai ethics and teachings into the modern business world has the power to lead businesses into a new era of success.
During his career he founded and lead several multimillion businesses. Being a father of three, he left the traditional business way after a disastrous battle-divorce in which he lost everything to become a highly specialized Therapist, Hypnotist and Coach. When winning World Championship in Sword Art, he combined all of his knowledge and leadership experience into the Label of the Swiss Business Samurai.
Today he is a successful international Speaker, a Coach, Hypnotist, a Counsellor and also bestselling Author. He founded and teaches also the System “Samurai Business Principles for Leaders and Entrepreneurs”, and also special topics like “Decision Making”, “Self Esteem” and “Charisma” and the practical “Bushido-Workshop” among others.
He’s been featured on BBC Scotland, CNBC Dubai, national TV’s in Germany and Switzerland, Bahrain This Month, Khaleej Times Dubai and has spoken on international stages such as the BPO Summit Dhaka, The Zurich international Hypnotist Convention, at the Burj Al Arab 7 Star Dubai, the World Trade Centre, Dubai Internet City, Real Man Conference Amsterdam, at Self Development Conventions in Cologne, Munich, Google Headquarters Dubai, to name just a few.
He also founded and teaches his own system, the “SystEmpathic© Process”, a highly effective and complete Hpno-Coaching Education System, specialized on releasing traumatic experiences and personal development.
This is what he says about his past:
“Due to a lack of training opportunities, I buried Martial Arts and Samurai-Dreams and finished High School in 1981 and went to University to become a medical doctor but dropped out 2 years later in order to work in the upcoming computer industry, where I became a marketing manager, later a successful trade show organizer. I changed business and run my own company, from zero to good 6-figures within 6 months and sold it 2 years after.
In 1988 I got married, became a father of 3 children, but after 17 years I faced a disastrous battle-divorce in which I lost everything and was in fact even suicidal for a certain time.
Then I made a decision, not to fail anymore and to constantly reinvent and improve myself and my abilities. After having studied Traditional Chinese Medicine, Tai Chi, Coaching and Hypnosis among others, I got my own coaching and healing practice. I developed my own system out of the most effective Hypnosis and Coaching tools.
Now, turning back to the roots of my dreams, the Samurai Way showed up again. In 2009, my second wife entered my life and we got married again.
Ever since I am following my journey. I started to practice Sword Art and became World Champion (in Corea) in 2006. The Samurai Way of life became more and more part of my life, since I am coaching, teaching and guiding people the principles of the bushido to reinvent themselves and to become successful entrepreneurs or leaders.
I published my first book about setting the course for life (in german), english books are in actually in production.
Today I am a successful international Speaker, a Coach, Hypnotist, a Counsellor and Author. I founded my own systems like Samurai Business Principles for Leaders, Managers and Business Owners, but I also teach specialities like Decision Making, Self Esteem and Charisma among others.
Applying the Samurai Principles distinguishes Entrepreneurs by far from most other business leaders. These Principles are diminishing possible thinking patterns but much more they are enriching, enhancing and boosting businesses if applied from the heart.
What distinguishes me from most other business people is my variety in knowledge and experience, having at least 9 professions, 15 years of leadership experience and about 18 years of coaching and treating experience, all of which highly successful. Under my label of the Swiss Business Samurai I can summarize everything I know, do and believe in.
What I do differently than most others is: When I made a decision I do whatever it takes to make it happen. There is no questioning “if…”, but only of the “how to…” – no matter what. This is why I am always successful in all of my areas.”
