Coaching provides a space for you to find answers to your questions.

In a coaching, we take stock together: What is good and should stay the same? Where would you like to see changes? We will structure your thoughts and use unusual questions and new perspectives to help you find fresh ideas. Together we will test change. You will develop a vision how work fits your life – and new strategies on how to get there.

Organizing my work

Self-management and time-management coaching helps you design a work life that suits your life as a whole. You gradually change your behavior to use your time sensibly for what matters to you most. I accompany, advise and make sure we keep an eye on the big picture: all aspects of your life.
When am I satisfied?

Developing a vision

We start by developing an image of what you want to accomplish. When are you content with how you work? What hinders you to be content?

Too little time for what matters?

Planning time

What is on your to-do list? Why do you often not accomplish everything? We investigate how you currently plan and use your time. We try new approaches. I help you to take on a realistic load and keep everything in mind.

Keeping track

Task-management

How do I manage my tasks, information and e-mails in a way that allows me to stay on top of things? We will find strategies that best suit you. You get to know the principles of productivity and you find your tools – the right app, a Bullet Journal® or simple lists.

Taking a break

Self-organization

We deal with your daily routines: How long should I work before taking a break? How do I manage to get started? How do I stop? We analyze how you currently organize your work. We then make changes so you can both reach your goals and maintain your energy levels.

Saying what I need

Clear communication

How do I tell my boss what I can and cannot get done? How do I delegate tasks? During our coaching sessions, you will clarify what you want to express. Together, we develop and test strategies that help you communicate successfully at the workplace.

When it is not working

Overcoming obstacles

You had a great plan, but it is not working out? Successful self-management is not just a question of good methods. All of us foster beliefs that might make it difficult to put plans into action. Together, we find your drivers and your mental blocks – to transform them into motivation for your next step.

Finding my career

What matters to me? What am I good at? What impact do I want to make with my work? As a career counsellor I am at your side when you wish to go in a new professional direction. Or when you just want to make sure you are on the right track.

Taking stock

First, we analyze your current situation: What is good and should stay the same? What would you like to change? What do you not want any more?

Clarifying your profile

Next, we clarify which values, skills and interests determine your professional happiness. What really matters to you? What does success mean to you? Which skills do you want to use in your work? Which skills do you want to develop? What inspires you?

Developing a goal

Starting from your profile, you will begin to develop a tangible career vision. Since this often requires inspiration and courage, I support you in this endeavor.

The next step

Finally, you plan the path towards making your vision come true. Maybe you want to practice a job interview, or consider a job offer. There is room for that and more during our career coaching sessions.

Road bumps

Sounds so easy? But it is not working out smoothly? There are many good reasons why a professional change process might have hiccups or stall. You are not alone. Together, we will find out what hinders you from making progress.

Coaching Process

During our initial free consultation of about 45 minutes we get to know each other personally and clarify which topics you would like to work on. I present my approach and methodological ideas for coaching and we agree on the conditions of the process. You do not have to make a decision until after this meeting.

A coaching process encompasses about three to ten 90-minute meetings, depending on the topic. The sessions generally spread out over a few months. I usually recommend having meetings about two to four weeks apart. This provides you time to test your conceived strategies in everyday life. During the final meeting we reflect upon the process.

With regard to the current pandemic, I offer my coachings online.

You may contact me via e-mail or call me at 0176-23239043 to schedule your initial consultation.
