    HELPING MANAGERS LEAD BETTER

    When Aristotle said "We are what we repeatedly do“ he reminded us that the impact we have on others and the world is largely determined by what we do… again and again. This means that managers constantly need to ask themselves “What is the right next step for us to take now?” To answer this profound question well and have the impact they want to have managers must develop mastery in presence, focus, reflexivity, ethics, connection, and thinking together.

    I support my clients in developing and finetuning these essential personal and collective practices through three interrelated activities:

    Leadership Mastery

    I support Board members, CEOs and other senior executives and managers to improve the quality of their individual leadership, master difficult people dynamics, address complex strategic or organizational change issues.

    Top Team Mastery

    I coach leadership teams to increase their strategic clarity, their ability to think and perform together, their role modelling courage, and their ability to mobilize others to create voluntary engagement.

    Organizational Agility

    Together with selected experts from my worldwide partner network I help organizations to increase their level of engagement, speed, agility and innovation.

    I have taught mindfulness and leadership at Saïd Business School – University of Oxford, organization change on the Ashridge Masters in Organization Change, and leadership at Management Centre Europe, EFMD and IMD.

    My clients say that I am very relational, challenging, risk-taking, practice-focused and theory-based, international, and highly experienced and competent.

    Prior to starting my independent consulting practice, I was on the leadership team of the consulting unit of Ashridge Business School, Partner at Oliver Wyman responsible for the Executive Development practice in Europe, Managing Director of Insight Consulting, Corporate Director Leadership & Organization Development at Zurich Insurance Group, Director Management Development at Dow Chemical Europe, Employee Development & Quality Performance Manager at Dow Chemical UK & Eire, and Training Manager & HR Business Partner at Dow Chemical Stade, Germany.

    I am trained in systemic consulting and have professional diplomas in executive coaching and body-centered awareness.

    In addition, I have studied and practiced Karate, meditation and improvisation theatre for many years.

    I was born and grew up close to Hamburg, Germany. For 25 years I have lived in the US, the UK, Spain and Switzerland. I am currently based in Frankfurt, Germany.

    "There is an authenticity about you that is so often lacking in other consultants. Whilst always firmly grounded you do not attempt to ‘over theorise’ with your clients but aim to cut through to the core of what needs to be addressed and avoid over complicating the matter in hand. You are the only consultant that I have heard my fellow Board members say they felt privileged to work with – praise indeed! "
    Board Member

    INSPIRE OTHERS AND LET YOURSELF BE INSPIRED

    This is a short video of me at the Mondi Leadership Forum. In it I explain my view of leading as a personal practice of creating movement amongst other people around something that is important to you and them.
