As an experienced coach and mentor I support my customers with process expertise, a structured approach, feedback and appreciation in order to promote healthy personal and professional growth. I love to work with my customers on clarifying their needs, identifying obstacle areas, opening up new perspectives and defining goals and visions. I use tools and techniques from systemic, solution-oriented coaching, appreciative inquiry and design thinking.
My background is in business. I am a Dipl.-Kffr. of the University of Cologne and also hold an MSc in systemic, solution-oriented coaching from the ESBA Institute in Vienna. My many years of international operational experience in marketing, product management and business development are integrated into my coaching and mentoring work. I have worked for Apple in the US and Europe, as well as for various start-ups in France and Germany prior to starting my coaching business about 10 years ago.
My coaching approach is best described by the following aspects:
I make sure we stay on the topic. I support you in clearly defining your concerns, focusing on possible solutions and structuring the first steps.
As a professionally trained expert I use my coaching techniques to guide you through the process of targeted questions and interventions, in order for you to discover new perspectives and to develop solution ideas.
As a coach, I am in a neutral position and have no personal interests in your issues. This enables you to use coaching as a playground for new ideas without paying attention to the sensitivities of other people within your environment.
As a coach, I am committed to confidentiality. Coaching provides protected framework in which your opinions and statements are treated with absolute confidentiality. This allows you to discuss topics that otherwise might contain potential for conflict.
