WORKING WITH AND FOR PEOPLE
My own career and personal life have seen many changes – intentional and otherwise – so I wanted to use my experience to help and support and coach individuals and teams in their own challenges and development.
Throughout my career, I have worked on the principles of trust, respect and appreciation, and I have gained a reputation as an efficient problem-solver equipped with empathy, foresight and a good understanding of commercial and business relationships.
I studied psychology with a focus on work and organisational psychology, and business administration was my minor, so it seemed logical to go into personnel management. My career led me to various companies in Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland. I have worked for German corporations and family-run businesses, and I’ve spent years at American multinationals, mostly with regional responsibility for EMEA and India but also with overall responsibility for human resources. I have also worked for some years as an honorary labour court judge at industrial tribunals in Frankfurt and Solingen.
I have enjoyed my career in HR a lot, but my personal focus shifted significantly over the years, away from organisations as a whole and towards the individuals in them. That is why I trained to become a certified systemic business coach (Quadriga University, Berlin), a certified eCoach and a psychological consultant at AAP, Vienna. That allowed me to acquire comprehensive theoretical knowledge to back up my passion for working with people and for people – knowledge which would enable me to work to the highest ethical standards and values. This, combined with a good measure of empathy which allows me to appreciate the emotional situation of my clients, enables me to offer a unique coaching experience, tailored precisely to your needs.
