The Executive Coach
As an Executive Coach, I have been working with business executives and political leaders since 1998, supporting them to tackle their issues. First and foremost I understand this process as a highly professional, totally trustful dialogue. Especially while accompanying experienced managers I often make use of so-called sparrings. In order to achieve a high level of efficiency, I created practicable evolutions of specific approaches, for example post-heroic management (as an attitude) and risk intelligence (as a tool box).
At my disposal I have a vast practical knowledge related to fast yet attentive and effective work with people, especially those in big corporates and in the younger digital business. My daily work consists of dealing with power, influence and politics, upward and downward leadership, as well as typical crises and developmental leaps.
You have come to the right place if, for example, you are facing the first 100 days on a board of directors, if you are a woman who is fed up with looking upwards through the “glass ceiling”, if you want to grow and develop, or if you run the risk of losing your job satisfaction. Further information on the coaching process can be found under “methods”.

My books also provide material for a further expansion of issues related to management, economy and society as a speaker, and their presentation on small and large stages. For many years I have been an active international speaker, in German as well as in English. I am represented by several agencies.
You will find my speaker profile here. Possible topics, as well as my schedule of events where you can meet me, are listed under lectures. You can also watch videos here, as well as on my YouTube channel.
I have been writing books since a long time. It is my personal vision to share my experiences and my understanding of economy and society with a larger number of people. You can order signed books via email; the books “Die Zeit der Helden ist vorbei” (The Time of the Heroes is Over) and “Risikointelligenz” (Risk Intelligence) are available directly from me. I offer new copies on Amazon Marketplace as well. Thank you for your interest! You will find more about the author under knowledge.
Of course I am committed to making my knowledge and my experience available. Since the beginning of the 1990s I am active in various associations, a political party, and several committees. My focus lies on strengthening people in their relationship with themselves and others. I believe this to be the crucial factor for what I like to call a good life – personal happiness, but also moral courage and active responsibility for this world.
