Personal Note

Significant stages in life: After several years of studying and working abroad, today I am a mother of 3 sons living as a native of Munich in Hamburg. I am a curious person and like to build bridges between supposed opposites: South and North, brain and intuition, motherhood and job, enthusiasm and sensitivity. 

Motivation: Curiosity, enthusiasm, and mindfulness.Mission: to inspire people ‘around the campfire’, allow space for their stories, turn ‘stone into gold’.

Passion: Allow space for leisure, dance, and stories.

Elements: Air and earth—combining thought and feeling, turning ideas and dreams into reality, reflect upon feelings.

Passion: Seeing and learning how people develop and grow—regardless of their nationality, background, values and differences. Traveling to new countries to experience and learn something new about them. My family and my dearest and most beloved friends.

Personal Note

Significant stages in life: Born and raised in Bremen, worked for 7 years in London and for 5 years in Frankfurt, lived in the USA, traveled Latin America for two years and studied in Liverpool and Berlin.

Passions: Traveling unfamiliar places and exploring goals, passions, and perspectives of people. My family—two small children and a husband (a British Parsi with Indian roots who spices up our German life a good deal).

Element: Water—both in solid and liquid form: in total, spent more than 2 years on a sailboat in Scandinavia and at least as much time skiing down hills or across ?.

Philosophy: It is a good amount of fun and a healthy dose of challenges that make life diverse and exciting. Enjoy the moment without loosing sight of tomorrow—in order to achieve your goals you should know where you want to go and regularly ask yourself whether you’re still on the right track.

The sun, the Mediterranean Sea, the sun, the Mediterranean Sea—also in reverse order—are my passions.

There are, at least, two sides to every- thing. The more questions we have, the great- er diversity there is, the more versatile our options become. 

In every workshop and every coaching I aim for these eye-opening lightbulb moments to emerge to open up new perspectives for viable changes.

Personal Note

From musician to manager to coach—my passion for music, people and technologies has taken various professional shapes allowing me insights in the most diverse living and working environments between Kiev, Bremen and Los Angeles. To share these experiences with others and in doing so making new ones is essential to me. When work is done I am drawn to water, be it on surfboard or sailboat—most of the time a camera at the ready and at least three books with me.

                Persönliche Note

                Wichtige Stationen: geboren & aufgewachsen in Braunschweig. Weitere Stationen in Göttingen, Berlin und am Bodensee, der nun unsere Heimat ist.

                Mein Ursprung: Meine Muttersprache ist die Deutsche Gebärdensprache. Als Kind gehörloser Eltern (Coda – child of deaf adults) habe ich schon früh gelernt, in zwei Welten – manchmal auch gleichzeitig – zu agieren und der Manager und Kommunikator der Familie zu sein.

                Leidenschaften: Ich liebe Veränderungen! Sich immer wieder auf neue Situationen, Menschen, Unternehmen und Aufgaben einzulassen // Development-Center, in denen man verschiedenen Rollen einnimmt: Moderatorin, Feedbackgeberin, Beobachterin, Trainerin, Coach, Rollenspielerin // die Vereinbarkeit von Familie & Beruf ist mir wichtig.

                Mein Element: Bildersprache. Ich arbeite gern mit Bildern, sicher auch, weil die Gebärdensprache eine visuelle Sprachform ist. Meine Feedbacks, meine Workshops zeichnen sich durch eine Story, den Vergleich mit Bildern aus. Dieser Perspektivwechsel schafft neue Denk- und Verhaltensweisen und bietet Chancen, Neues zu entdecken.

                Hobbys & Vorlieben: Wandern, Berge, Kajak und Motorboot fahren, Tanzunterricht geben // 10 Jahre Leistungssport Tanzen im Einzel- und Formationstanzen (BTSC Braunschweig) // unsere Haustiere: Katzen, griechische Landschildkröten // Garten, Kochen & guter Wein.

                Lieblingsreiseziel: Rucksackwandern in unbekannten Gegenden.

                Personal Note

                Personality development and team work have been a guiding motive since my early youth—as a former premier league handball player and trainer those principles shaped from a very early age.

                My motto: I want to share impulses with people.

                My family is my calm anchor, I have been happily married for 30 years and am father to two grown-up daughters.

                Tennis and long distance hiking are my passion. The 14 days lasting hike above the Fjell on the Olavsweg in Norway – THE highlight.

                Furthermore I am a co-founder of the aid-organization chaYra – charity projects with impact (www.chayra.org), in which I am very invested.

                Passions:

                My family, thinking wild, writing, creating with others, trying out and living everything, that could make the world a better place, intensive dialogues, to be alone with myself, my studies about intuition, my calling as coach, growing constantly

                Elements: 

                Fire: to ignite me and others for new things 
                Water: to dive deeply into dialougues, get tot he bottoms of things 

                Hobbys and preferences: 

                To be and to move throught nature with many children and other adults satisfies many of my needs. At the end a round charade and a vegan meal - cooked together - accompinied by „Perfect day“ from Lou Reed!

                  If—like me—

                  1. you are a happy family man,

                  2. your profession and vocation have become one,

                  3. you drive Volvo and Vespa, meaning you only move vehicles with names beginning with ‘V’, what’s there left as goal in life?

                  Three things, actually:

                  To continue to cook with inspiration and joy in „My private vegan restaurant“ my wife and I run. And vegan, that is. To improve my drumming skills so that I can confidently look for a band. To make the world a better place starting with myself each day.

                  Personal Note

                  I believe in a healthy combination of openness, clarity, confrontation and humor, that enables results with personality and diversity.

                  As a completely „Hamburger Deern“ (German: original girl from Hamburg) I am a huge friend of clear words and I believe in the word of honor given by a trader. Liability is an exceptional value, especially in the professional world.

                  Likewise there is a huge requirement of sensibility to integrate the motives and stories and to listen mindful and carefully.

                  For many years I work as personnel consultant for companies, as Coach and psychological consultant and I am intensively involved with business development that is enabling for the future ahead.

                  Worth living: intensity with philosophical depth, sensuality, fun and pleasure.

                  Personal Note

                  Since I finished school, I took every opportunity to spend time in other countries – to do my university studies, work, go on holidays. I love setting out without really knowing what to expect: language, food, smells, colours and of course the people.

                  Yet at the same time I love coming home. And this is my second passion: architecture and design. Our house as well as almost every piece of furniture have a story to tell and in the garden we have different spots for every mood. It is probably not by chance that this home is in the Ruhr area, where “you don‘t succumb to appearances just because you only put your stock in being“, as Grönemeyer expressed it so well in his hymn.

                  Personal Note

                  Born and raised in Muenster – studied, lived and worked in Rhineland in Bonn, Cologne, Leverkusen – due to studies and professional background gained the fascinating opportunity to get to know different kinds of people, contexts and countries – after all self-chosen in Muenster again where I live with my husband and our two daughters.

                  For me it is a great privilege to experience my profession as my vocation – Meeting and getting to understand people and organizations and creating values by supporting them effectively in their development and growth – With the conviction of a passionate personnel and organizational developer that everyone has the potential to further grow and develop and companies are all able to be even more successful through a good sustained leadership.

                  In general I like to be on the ‘move‘ and in ‘connection‘ – also during sports (golfing, jogging, skiing) – with and within the nature (at the seaside, in the mountains, in the forest and on the lawn and the green) – with touching interesting and authentic people.

                  Personal Note

                  I strongly believe that all individuals can develop themselves and that good leadership makes a difference to performance and this development.

                  With my background in high performing environments in consumer goods industries, I have worked with a number of sales and production teams, leaders and individuals to increase performance and foster personal development.

                  I am passionate about helping leaders, individuals and teams to increase their performance, effectiveness and well-being.

                  To achieve this I bring a lot of support, vision and challenge with me to encourage my clients to find their own (right) way.
