Why I do what I do

Working with people from different cultures and contexts has always fascinated me. Supporting my clients in reaching for their goals and meeting their own needs is what drives me.

I support leaders and international organizations in creating a health-promoting framework in which people - regardless of their background - feel welcome, psychologically safe and can develop their full potential.

I am committed to a (working) world in which people think without prejudice, actively listen to each other, are interested in each other, communicate non-violently and value diversity.

I contribute to a society in which all people - no matter where they come from - are enabled to pursue meaningful and fairly-paid work that corresponds to their individual talents and personal values. In times of a shortage of skilled workers, this is more important than ever for Germany.

Combining a fulfilling professional and family life should be an achievable goal for everyone. This is an essential prerequisite for staying healthy and productive in the long term. I support you in this.
