ABOUT MYSELF

As a graduate psychologist with a PhD in management (doctora oeconomiae - Dr. oec.-HSG) and a systemic consultancy qualification, I consider your concerns from different professional perspectives. During my psychology degree course, I made a close study of human experience, behaviour and learning, as well as group / team building and development. I extended this education to encompass the macro-organisational level at the University of St. Gallen. Which soft factors are particularly influential on organisational performance and how can one change and manage these factors? One of the things I learnt in my systemic additional training was to ask effective questions, effectively organise the consulting / coaching process and to think systemically. My profile is rounded off with sundry other training courses in the fields of facilitation, dialectics and management/leadership. I give you effective and professional support.

Theoretical knowledge coupled with practical experience.

In working with me you benefit from my more than ten years of practical experience as a manager, leader, personnel development manager, business consultant and researcher. In my seven years as the head of a personnel development department in an international, diversified group, I reported directly to the Group Main Board and gained valuable experience of change management, new role development and strategic personnel development work. From personal experience as a head of department, mother of two children, and wife in a dual-career couple I know what issues and conflicting goals arise in reconciling one’s professional and personal life. I know just how complex work-life models can become and, in this context, how important it is to look after oneself to sustain long-term performance.
