Competing successfully depends on how well you succeed in responding well to the requirements related to global, national and industry-specific trends. In the end, in a corporate context it is all about boosting performance – in spite of and also with such trends. In coaching, more and more frequently you are required to localize yourself within the existing requirements, to keep an eye on your personal needs in spite of and with these requirements, and to evolve coherently inside this force field – and this goes beyond any career- or conflict issues. These challenges also apply where new structures and newly allocated responsibilities are being tested – for instance in start-ups or departments applying a self-organization approach.
I am concerned with strengthening both individuals and the organization. For this, I need to take organizational realities seriously; the elementary steps in what I do are expanding self-awareness, developing self-efficacy, and being able to shape fruitful dialogues on that basis. This is how potential can be developed fully – incidentally also the potential to commit oneself and make a contribution beyond the private and professional domain.
All these steps lead across bridges. I help build these bridges: to your inner being, to awareness, to your own strengths. Understanding and successful cooperation require a huge number of stable bridges; in the change process, for instance, it is important to find the dramatic arc and the bridge leading to the future.

The more comfortable employees feel in their organization, the better the chance of achieving a lasting productivity. What we humans need, essentially, is clear roles and tasks, a feeling of belonging, autonomy, security, meaningfulness, and perceived fairness. The more these needs are met, the more we like committing ourselves to a cause or the current employer. These are also good prerequisites for identification with the organization. Identity is becoming more and more relevant on many different levels – because it stands for stability. Identification is influenced by meaningful actions, by preservation of personal values, and to a great extent by line managers. So, it is also important from this point of view that the relevant leadership skills and performance of executives be promoted.
Regardless of the concrete “format” – be it consulting, training or coaching –, taking inspiration from the latest scientific findings is a given in my line of work. Positive psychology is extremely productive scientifically and provides an ever-growing bouquet of interventions. They can be perfectly combined with the systemic approach. It is an important basic systemic assumption that systems may change by constructing solutions. Solution- and growth orientation help develop personal and organizational potentials, utilize defeat, and create resilience.
Neuropsychological findings are constantly published and provide a more in-depth understanding of our needs, our sensitivities and interpersonal responses – and also concrete new models and hence tools.
And in addition to all these orientations towards the well-explored, working with art opens doors – in a very gentle and elegant way – to the preconscious and to emotional shares that will ultimately lead to a well-rounded solution or realignment.
