"My self-awareness in my new role in the unfamiliar country increased significantly. She was a very valuable contributor to my success as CEO ..."
Marijn Dekkers, CEO (until 2016), Bayer AG

I have 25 years of experience in supporting managers, senior managers, executives, CEOs and groups in finding out about their strengths, room for improvement and developing their capabilities and skills. I do this by using different tools e.g. systemic and conscious leadership coaching as well as integrating different cultural approaches.

After my master degree in Education and Romance languages & literatures (University of Cologne) and Barcelona, I specialized in multi-cultural co-working, systemic and conscious coaching. My experience as a managing director since 1998 has been of great help regarding my work.

Since 1985, I have been working with multiple global companies (Bayer AG, Roche, B. Braun, Deutsche Bahn, Deutsche Telekom, European Patent Office, HBOS, Bank of Scotland, EASA, GIZ etc.) training managers and potentials in areas such as: presenting, meeting skills, conflict management, intercultural communication and team development. In the field of CEO and executive coaching as well as employee coaching and counselling, the areas have been dealing with change, becoming resilient, coping with the “new normal”, dealing with the global VUCA world, enhancing creativity and innovative processes, i.e. applying agile tools as well as using diversity to reach and exceed objectives.
