You have goals like these:
- You desire a more trusting and more productive co-operation with colleagues and business partners abroad?
- You are a foreign expert who has found a job in Germany and you find some business manners and procedures confusing? That’s why you are unsure as to what your colleagues and superiors expect from you?
- As the manager of a multicultural team you would like to spend less time on internal consultations and wish for your staff to show more proactivity and self-responsibility?
Benefit from my experience as a trainer and coach
For more than 15 years I have been accompanying employees and executives of medium-sized enterprises. I support them in developing specific competences for a successful collaboration with international colleagues and business partners from other cultural and linguistic backgrounds – both within the organization and in global competition. Today, my own long-standing experience in international sales is incorporated in this work just like my experiences gained during extended stays in North and South America.
Developing cultural intelligence with my holistic concept
Aside from digitalization and continuous change processes, the increasing global integration of organizations is imposing further requirements on employees and executives with regard to their cultural intelligence. Cultural intelligence means that someone is capable of acting in a reflected and culturally competent manner when in contact and collaboration with international partners. The more your organization is internationally integrated, and the more foreign staff you employ, the greater the influence of the cultural intelligence factor on your corporate success.
For you as an employee or executive, developing your cultural intelligence means gaining confidence and self-confidence and being able to fulfil your tasks faster and more successfully.
I am convinced that, with the help of my training and coaching, you will co-operate with your international partners with more enjoyment and motivation and achieve more satisfaction with your work and at your workplace.
You prefer speaking English rather than German?
No problem – with me, you can choose between German and English for your coaching or training.
How you as a personnel developer in an international organization benefit from working with me
A study confirms that 10% of the German companies interviewed have missed out on, partly substantial, export orders as a consequence of language and cultural barriers.
(ELAN ‘The effects of a lack of foreign language skills in organizations on the European economy’, 2006)
With the aid of my holistic concept, your employees and executives will develop the cultural intelligence required for meeting the complex challenges of intercultural co-operation within your organization or on the global stage.
This will strengthen the competitiveness of your organization. You will be among the organizations that win export orders.
How you as a private individual benefit from my coaching and training
Business Coaching provides you with clarity regarding your professional situation, your goals, and your needs. This will open up new perspectives and options which in turn will provide you with solutions to your career challenges. You will work out concrete action steps to attain fresh self-confidence and motivation.
As a foreign employee – also referred to as expatriate – you will get your bearings in your host country. Familiarization and acclimatization – also for your spouse – will be completed much faster, making sure that your stay in Germany has a positive start and a successful outcome. I will help you understand how we Germans tick, and you will be able to shape your lives in Germany in a more confident and self-confident way.
Would you prefer online coaching or training?
Then you will love my online offer for flexible coaching or training sessions via video-chat and for time-independent e-learning modules.
Up close and personal: What motivates me
As long as I remember, I have seen the exchange and collaboration with people from many countries in the world as an enriching experience.
It is this multicultural wealth of experience that inspires and motivates me today to support you in meeting your many challenges in a global environment. I would like to open up new perspectives for you to recognize the opportunities stemming from cultural diversity that may be beneficial for your professional and personal development.
In my work, I follow the systemic approach that puts you as a person in the centre. I accompany the process of your individual further development with solution-oriented methods by means of which you will identify your own resources and use them to achieve your goals. I am convinced that you are going the way that suits you best. And I will support and accompany you on your way and will be happy if you place your trust in me.
Whatever your request may be, I am willing to support and accompany you as a coach and trainer in achieving your personal objectives faster.
