I create high-quality development spaces in the environment of power and responsibility in business as well as in the field of research and development. I work with executives, entrepreneurs, consultants and scientists on the topics of leadership, personality, integrity and change.
For more than 20 years, leadership has complemented management and has already proven itself in all dynamic situations in which people are involved. Whereas "clear announcements" or "command and control" were still successful tools for achieving goals quickly in the 1990s, today things are different: People want to be taken along.
Anyone who wants to motivate employees to take entrepreneurial action needs people who think and act independently. But it is precisely this attitude that can no longer be mobilized with announcements "from above". Whether in Corporates, where many people need to be moved, or in the case of investors who want to successfully bring their assets to their goals: it is always a matter of involving those affected. Success without participation is no longer conceivable in our society.
Even experienced managers therefore need a solid relationship competence. In coaching, young managers sharpen their existing knowledge and supplement it with tools and methods that become effective in a collaborative and participatory way. Executives with a long track record raise their personal experience in coaching, develop their own tools and ensure that they continue to be inspired.
The transition into a new role is always a significant step and is decisively facilitated by coaching support. The blind spots of one's own expectations inevitably lead to self-limitation and need communicative opening into the new context.
Typically, coaching should start 4-6 weeks before the start of the new role. The process then focuses on your personal priorities. The focus is on change management, power, politics and influence as well as alignment of your personal strategy. The future can only be shaped with an entrepreneurial vision!
Most people avoid conflicts and shy away from conflict talks. Why? The reasons are obvious: we are emotionally involved, there is something at stake and different interests clash. In addition, the sovereign handling of conflicts is not practiced at home, at school or in studies.
Are you stuck in a conflict and finally want to move freely again? I am happy to find solutions for you and with you that will open up a relaxed path into the future. Put an end to open conflicts and at the same time expand your repertoire with the rules of positive communication based on mutual agreements. As an executive coach, I am familiar with old and new power games, techniques of listening and understanding as well as factual negotiation.
Expand your possibilities, use your resources!
Change management is considered the decisive process for innovations in business and industry. Drivers of change are new technologies, followed by changes in labour market, in society, and in political framework conditions - we are dealing with economic and ecological crises. In our companies, the most important thing is to carry the employees along with us in the necessary, often far-reaching changes.
This is an enormous challenge for all those who bear leadership responsibility and therefore affects the entire management. Strategic goals cannot be achieved without cultural integration.
Today, power as pressure, hierarchy or ignorance manifests itself more constructively in personal presence. Accordingly, power is leadership instead of "command and control" and requires indispensable social competence and expressiveness.
As far as presence and communication nowadays - no recipes or tools can help. In difficult situations, not only professional and communicative qualifications are required, but also the integration of these qualities with the necessary reflection.
One's own strengths and personal experience can prove helpful. In this way, even senior direct reports and managers can be carried along confidently.
