We will find the right professional & personal development solution for your matter at hand. We first have a free of charge session to understand your need(s), to establish rapport, and to discuss the details of a potential contracting (30 min). Remote/virtual services are available also across timezones in English and German also on weekends. In-person solutions are focused on Düsseldorf. I focus on individualized learning journeys (soft- and leadership skills). In coaching one of my preferred tools is working with the Enneagram as a tool for personal and professional development (individuals & teams).

Coaching - what is it and what does it require?

Coaching is an intellectually stimulating and thought/action provoking creative process designed to inspire individuals and teams to maximize personal and/or also professional potential. The basis for successful coaching is mutual trust and the active cooperation of the coachee. Throughout the coaching process, the coachee is responsible for him/herself. Coaching is not psychotherapy and cannot replace psychotherapy. It is the task of the coach to give impulses and to initiate insight processes as well as to prepare and follow up their implementation in reflective conversations. The coach provides assistance and strives to motivate the coachee and to discover together with the coachee ways to achieve the coachee's goals. It is not the task of the coach to take decisions from the coachee or to give concrete advice. The coach also endeavors not to influence the coachee in any way in the coach's own interest. The success of the coaching is not guaranteed by the coach, as it is significantly bound to an active process participation of the coachee. In order to achieve the goals of the coaching and to have a sustainable success from the cooperation, the coachee strives for openness and a self-critical exchange of ideas. Furthermore, the coachee accepts that the coaching requires an objective and detailed examination of his or her own person and situation.

While some coaching questions require only a few hours, some others might be more time intensive and result in accompanying you through weeks or months to come.
