Consultant: I have worked, managed and consulted around the world. Grounded. Empathic. Systemiatic. My craft keeps me firmly planted on the ground with both feet. My antenna for interpersonal relationships are always set to receive. The psychologist in me analyzes human behavior in a social community. Searching for practical solutions is a matter close to my heart.
My skills are in particularly high demand where conflicts influence social life. This is often the case in crisis regions and in collaborating with refugees. I’m currently working predominantly for municipalities in Germany and in global development policy.
There is a wide range of applications. At the moment I am dedicated to advising on these focus areas:
Achieving long-term objectives – this calls for developing sustainable approaches. But our world is complex, variable and fast-paced. Strategy is not static, but rather is observation and adaptation on a constant basis.
With teams and groups I reflect on: Where do we want to go? Do our objectives fit the changes around us? Does our path lead to the objective? Does everyone know the path? Who else do we need at our side? Why, in fact, do we pose these questions repeatedly?
The requirements for one’s own learning are as individual as personalities. It is vital to create a learning environment that stimulates individual initiative. To successfully develop further requires consistent commitment and the right strategy – for your entire life.
Whether it’s professional training, preparation for the labor market or founding small companies – as a trainer and facilitator, I generate creative learning spaces that inspire people to participation and self-organization.
Influencing one’s own life and living conditions is a fundamental human need. A lack of scope for creativity makes people sick or radicalizes them. I’ve often experienced that – especially in crisis regions.
In Germany and abroad I am currently consulting with teams that work together with refugees in camps or large accommodations. Participating in one’s one living circumstances empowers individuals and benefits the society around them – often confirmed by observation and evidence.
Disagreements are an important driver for positive changes. They show issues that need to be addressed. There are often legitimate and understandable concerns behind superficially aggressive statements.
How difficulties relating to shelters and to integrating refugees can be opportunities for cohesion and participation – that’s what I’m currently working on with municipalities in Germany. Inquiring about the real concerns behind the problems facilitates the necessary trust. Only when someone is taken seriously do they open up for dialogue.
