Guidelines for my work/my personal attitude

My long-standing practical experience in the finance/economic world and my training in various humanistic theories influence my coaching style. The focus of my partnership with clients is a respectful, reliable, and open exchange, which can be confrontative, clearly goal-oriented, and also contains humorous elements. I believe that coaching helps in identifying inhibitive approaches, recognizing and strengthening existing resources, regaining independence/autonomy in actions, and further developing authenticity.

Methods, Principles

  • Uncovering unconscious thought/behavior patterns to consciously initiate changes.
  • Developing questions for observing one’s own behavior to strengthen self-perception and gain authentic attitudes and options.
  • Use of role-playing, supportive methodical/theoretical inputs, and feedback.
