Career development coaching
Leadership capability building
I am a Professional & Personal Development Coach, Trainer, and Facilitator in secondary employment while I am with McKinsey & Company in my 9th year (both are independent from one another).
In my primary employment I am a Professional Development Manager since 2017. I drive and advise the development and evaluation of our non-client facing colleagues (~1000). I oversee overall talent strategy and co-lead related initiatives primarily for the German & Austrian Office (sometimes Europe and for our client-facing colleagues, too). I act as a key-facilitator, faculty, and coach for several firm-wide learning programs with a focus on leadership capability building.
From 2014-2017 I advised clients as a Consultant in operational, strategical, and organizational topics. I had a functional focus especially on operations and transformations. I further focused on the steel industry.
Before I started to work with McKinsey & Company I was pursuing a legal career from 2011-2014 especially with regard to corporate and financial topics. I gathered teaching and facilitating experience at the University of Düsseldorf, too.
I obtained a PhD in Criminal Law, a Diploma in Law and a B.A. in Philosophy/History from the University of Düsseldorf.
"Florian offered a tailor-made program for our leadership team. The sessions were a lot of fun and very efficient. Florian helped us to better understand how we can excel as a team. The program also helped us to sharpen the vision and mission of our company."
"The coaching session with Florian helped me to question my own patterns of thinking and acting in everyday life and during work. The session was entertaining, educational and insightful - I now think more actively about who I am and who I want to be."
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.
