About me

I am a driven, enterprising, enthusiastic trainer, coach and facilitator. I love to develop existing business to achieve improved quality, efficiency and effectiveness. It is important for me that my work leads to visible results and is of the highest quality. The feedback I received as a trainer/coach included: using a careful approach, integrity, ability to create a safe atmosphere. I love open communication, start from the basis of trust and I can assess when confrontation is required. Methodologies:  Theme Centered interaction, Alternatives to Violence Project and Deep Democracy.

My coaching of teams in socially oriented medium-sized organizations includes providing support and encouragement in order to increase commitment to the task, the colleagues and the organizational goals. This increases motivation, productivity and results. I work with executives from middle management and with professionals of a range of training and qualifications. I offer pathways such as teamcoaching, individual coaching, guidance, communication training, conflict management, training and feedback meetings around vision and mission. My specialization: leadership programs for team leaders/coaches in independent team management in health care organisations. In these pathways executives are thought the ideas and tools of Deep Democracy to coach their teams.
