I favour an efficient, no-nonsense approach. I don’t work by trial and error, and I won’t drag-out searches for solutions. I’ll quickly adapt to your situation shown and find the right starting point to move your team forwards.
I know where you are coming from. With over fifteen years of experience in leading international projects, I understand the difficulties that can arise in complex projects and teams. I’ll identify pragmatic solutions that are feasible and can be implemented to ease your particular situation.
I combine business management thinking with a high level of social competence. In me you will get the best of both worlds - the clearly decisive manager and the empathetic coach.
I will look at your overall system, including framework conditions, structures, values and management styles. I am interested in the big picture because that’s the best way to ensure sustainable change that grows with your team.
To find corporate success and maintain healthy employees, you need clear objectives and well thought-out resource allocation. Good health is key for business success and private well-being. It helps in the sprints, but is even more important for the long distance run. That’s why I completed my alternative practitioner examination in psychology and physiology in 2018, in addition to my business management training.
