For the past 10 years have been helping individuals, teams and whole organisations successfully realize their developmental goals. 2022 I founded ChangeLab Organisationsberatung with the goal of providing customers with the specialized expertise they need for dealing with the complexity of change processes.
What motivates and drives me: We live in an increasingly volatile and fast-paced world. People, teams and whole organisations at times experience themselves as subjects of complex dynamics they neither understand nor can control. What motivates me is helping individuals, teams and whole organisations become the architects of their own world.
What characterises and defines me as a consultant: Both my analytical approach and my open, solution oriented mindset. As an organisational sociologists with a background in systems and communication theory I am trained in understanding the complex interrelationships of change processes. What, however, never stops both fascinating, inspiring and motivating me, is the power of well designed change measures. Together we develop innovative solutions for reaching your developmental goals. With much constructive energy and when necessary a grain of tenacity I accompany you in all stage of your change process.

For the past 15 years I have been helping companies develop their personell and adjust their organisational designs to changing circumstances. In my consultancy work I often focus on leadership, productivity and purpose. I bring a deep understanding of how powerful these three aspects of both individual, team and organisational development can be - based on my own experience in leadership positions and as the former head of the human resource and organisational development department at the Hertie School Berlin. As a systemic consultant I have a differentiated understanding of contextual factors that contribute to a healthy working environment, making long-term success more than just a possibility. As a psychotherapist I help my clients understand implications of management decisions on the organisational culture, on employee motivation and employee retention.
I have been accompanying companies and executives in the successful realization of their goals and change projects since 2017.
What defines me as a consultant and coach: My deep and experienced-based leadership expertise - 20 years in different leadership positions, 10 in top management as the CEO of Porsche Berlin and Daimler-Benz. In my work as a coach and trainer I give you tools and leadership instruments that have an immediate and positive impact. Measurable improvements in efficiency are a key part of my consultancy work.
What motivates me: Reaching goals, developing new and innovative solutions, enhancing leadership performance.
After studying business intelligence and process management I worked in strategic and organisational development in tech Startup and am currently working as an agil coach.
My goal is to help create organisations in which every employee experiences himself as making a valuable contribution to the common organisational goals. And this in an atmosphere characterised by mutual appreciation, entrepreneurial clarity and team-spirit. I help make sure all relevant interests, perspectives and ideas are brought to the table, creating a robust and integrative road map for future development. I see facilitating an open and constructive mindset as a key aspect of my work as a consultant.
What defines me as a consultant: I combine an open minded approach to challenging situations with pragmatism. I see helping my clients set clear goals and focus on priorities as a key aspect of my work - both in my team development processes and in my coaching sessions. What counts are solutions that work. And the best solutions are often the simplest. In my experience success often means both the willingness to experiment with the possibilities and finding the easiest most pragmatic way of overcoming challenges: Never losing sight of priorities while working together to achieve your goals. Dealing pragmatically with obstacles as they arise.
