My Coaching Approach

For me, coa­ching is a pro­fes­sio­nal gui­d­ance through a pro­cess of per­so­nal chan­ge. My approach is solu­ti­on-ori­en­ted and gea­red towards the future. Whe­ther your indi­vi­du­al con­cern or spe­ci­fic goal is of pro­fes­sio­nal or per­so­nal natu­re, you deter­mi­ne the agen­da of our mee­tings. Here the decisi­ve fac­tor for me is that we build a trust-based rela­ti­ons­hip with each another.

In the cour­se of our per­so­nal dis­cus­sions I play the role of the neu­tral obser­ver and will ask you tar­ge­ted ques­ti­ons. I lis­ten clo­se­ly, give feed­back, and imple­ment coun­se­ling methods based on the topics of our dis­cus­sions and your cur­rent situa­ti­on. The goal is to shar­pen your own focus and chan­ge your per­spec­ti­ve so that you yourself — by using new­ly dis­co­ve­r­ed resour­ces – can actively work on alte­ring what it is you wish to change.

As your coach, I will not pre­sent you with polis­hed con­cepts or solu­ti­ons to your ques­ti­ons. Only you know the cor­rect ans­wer for yourself which you may not see at first. Over time we tend to loo­se con­ta­ct to our inner con­scious­ness, fee­lings, and values. This may lead us to for­get a hid­den talent or dis­re­gard our inner com­pass that could set us on the right track again.

In the end, it is important to me that we deve­lop a cour­se of action which you can inte­gra­te into your ever­y­day life. That is the only way chan­ge hap­pens. Your joie de viv­re and deter­mi­na­ti­on should win out in the end. Every so often we will eva­lua­te your pro­gress through a suc­cess review. I do not want you to beco­me depen­dent on your coach, but rather get to grips with your issu­es on your own respon­si­bi­li­ty. My defi­ni­ti­on of coa­ching is to help you help yourself.
