for Executives & High Potentials

Business Coaching

At core, my coachings consist of solution-focused and result-oriented reflection processes for practical challenges in companies.

I have nearly 20 years of executive training at private universities for active professionals and in the area of consulting. Since 2003, I have been working with executives and high potentials from my partner companies within the scope of coaching processes. Each executive coaching process is an exciting journey leading to new possible courses of action.

Main topics of my executive coaching sessions


Own & others’ interpretation variants of acting, thinking & feeling

(New) roles

Management responsibility, position, functions & tasks


Improving relationships, honing leadership skills

Increasing business

Jointly developing concrete ideas & concepts (consulting)

One-on-one appointments
and remote coaching

My coaching processes often start with one-on-one meetings. To increase flexibility and when there is physical distance separating us, we use web conferencing solutions and remote whiteboarding.


Shared responsibility in coaching processes

As a coach, I assume responsibility for coaching processes. As coachees, your managers and employees learn to take responsibility for themselves, for their contributions, contents, conclusions and decisions. I tailor each coaching process to effectively address personal and business issues.
