About rituals at the turn of the year

Rituals accompanied mankind for thousands of years because they have transformative power that goes far beyond the common and ordinary. Especially during the New Year’s Celebration the healing effect unfolds across various areas of life. Rituals are powerful tools for releasing inner blockages and creating balance.

The turn of the year symbolises transformation, while rituals promote connectedness, trust and the connection to our inner self. Integrating rituals into coaching practices opens up new paths and supports personal development holistically. Rituals not only offer structured approaches to achieving goals, but also promote self-reflection and strengthen self-efficacy.

We wish you a confident start to the New Year 2024.

Acceptance of differences is a prerequisite for the surprise of similarities.

Coaching is the key to successful integration of international specialists.

The integration of international specialists is crucial for a company's success. Effective onboarding with a focus on cultural differences lays the foundation for successful relationships. Our coaching sessions not only support adaptation to the corporate culture, but also promote intercultural sensitivity on an organizational and individual level.

The key topics:

  • Facilitating adaptation:
    Targeted coaching promotes smooth adaptation to the corporate culture, way beyond language skills.
  • Highlighting individual strengths:
    Our offerings focus on promoting the individual strengths of international professionals.
  • Developing intercultural sensitivity:
    Developing intercultural sensitivity is crucial for long-term success

With my many years of experience as an expatriate manager in various continents, I offer not only theoretical knowledge but also practical expertise. The coaching sessions help companies to master the challenges of intercultural cooperation and to use the diversity of their teams as a competitive advantage. Together, we set the course for sustainable success through the full development of the potential of international specialists and an inclusive corporate culture.

The beginning is the most important part of the work.

Objective: Excellence in business

Investing in employee professional development is an excellent solution to increase opportunities for career growth in business and improve company culture. The LinkedIn Global Talent Trends Report 2022 found that employees consider professional development to be the most important way to improve company culture. In fact, 93% of employees said they would stay with a company longer if it invested in their career. Companies that offer one-on-one coaching to employees at all levels are improving both their company culture and employer branding with this investment. Factors such as company culture and flexible working options are crucial to ensure employee retention and that employees prioritise internal mobility over external employment opportunities. Keyword: Quiet Quitting

The use of data-based behavioral profiling at the start of my delevopment work provides effective tools to assist in the assessment and analysis of processes related to recruitment, onboarding, development and employer branding. The results provide the basis for the analysis of personal and professional behaviour and the evaluation of strengths and development potential. Keyword: War for Talents, targeted onboarding

This was the topic of my workshop at the Wirtschaftsjunioren Potsdam: Recognising strengths and development potential, both for yourself and teams, a workshop with Uwe Grassnick

Pointing the way...

Sometimes it just takes a change of perspective, a new angle on life to create moments of change. It takes passion to commit to a new endeavour with clarity and the certainty that it actually comes from a deep, autonomous sense of self. Aliveness and energy gives you the stamina and inspiration to keep growing and learning. Stagnation and indifference occurs when you simply act from the outside in to meet the expectations placed on you by others. Define your own milestones of success and find your own path.

The time we take is the time that gives us something.

Take the time!

There are many conflicting messages out there and the people spreading them demand a high level of attention. Don't forget to retreat at times; to take a breath, pause and reconnect. It is good to give yourself a break from time to time, a few hours, a weekend, maybe longer, to reflect on your progress. Check in with yourself and see how you are doing. Cherish the time you spend with the people you love - it is a kind of energetic vessel to be close to ourselves and others. It is this inner essence that resonates with ourselves and helps to activate our self-healing powers and vital energy.
