“Work is no longer a production economy, not even a service economy, it’s an identity economy.” - Esther Perel

My work

It’s good relationships that encourage us to think differently, motivate us to give our best, awaken creativity and approach challenges with trust. In our work environments these - personal and social - competencies gain a lot of significance. The requirements for positive relationships in the workplace are a combination of a good relationship with our self, knowledge about dynamics and conflict and empathy. Enabling and accompanying companies during this process is the focus of my work.

One of the first questions I receive from clients is: Why does the mental well-being become such a focus for companies?

The answer exists in short and in long. In short: Everything is interdependent and the focus on digital tools has a reciprocal effect on humans. The longer answer is: Our focus in the working world lies immensely on the external, the digital and shows and reveals a gap between the actual benefit of digital tools and the human capabilities to use these tools effectively for the company. For many of the parts that the digital makes easier for us, we see more and more downside: the we are either mentally unprepared for the change or in need to develop and strengthen our human skills first.

The first step and the base for a cooperation in order to develop personal and social skills is your wish to implement change. Are you an entrepreneur, startup founder, in a leading position, home in HR or staff member with the wish to change your own behaviour and/or the people with whom you are working? Great! Then let’s start an initial conversation. Together, we define, what you care about and what goals we set together.

Fields of expertise

Relational Intelligence

Work is not only the place where many spend most of our time, it is also today where we search for meaning and purpose. Such expectations make the working world more complex and it is at this moment where Relational Intelligence (RI) comes in. RI facilitates understanding about the dynamics taking place in a company or a team. It’s these dynamics, where most answers for challenges within a company lay. The goal is to face internal challenges and proactively create a flourishing working environment where tensions are removed step by step and creativity flows. Together we find answers, for instance for these questions: How do we establish trust? How do we manage conflict? How do we avoid conflict if necessary? Is the communication open on the basis of trust or is the basis shaped by mistrusts and communication indirect? How many perspectives play a role in decision making processes and why those that do?

These are a couple of exemplary questions that establish an intelligent approach towards relationships, help to understand dynamics and use them for the benefit of the company.

Emotional Intelligence

Emotionale Intelligenz oder auch Emotionale Kompetenz beschreibt den intelligenten Umgang mit den eigenen Emotionen und den Emotionen anderer. Als Teilbereich der Beziehungsintelligenz bezieht sich die Arbeit konkreter auf Individuen und die Art und Weise, wie die Emotionen einzelner auf andere wirken. Emotionale Intelligenz sind ein wichtiger Teil von unternehmerischen Erfolg, denn Emotionen sind eng verbunden mit der individuellen Performance-Leistung eines Unternehmens und der Mitarbeitenden.

Der Umgang mit Emotionen ist kein Problem, dass Unternehmen lösen, aber es gilt managen gilt und für das dringend Platz gemacht werden muss.
