Business coaching for a new executive in the trading industry
The coachee had just started a new position in management and wanted to work on her ability to handle stressful high-pressure situations and gain clarity about her position in the management team. In five half-day sessions, strategies for acting under pressure and dealing with attacks and provocations were developed. In addition, the team dynamics and various interests of the management team were analyzed and a strategy for working with colleagues was created.
Business coaching and conceptual consulting for the head of human resources development
In this project, we supported our client, the head of HR development at a medical technology company, in adapting to her rapidly changing work environment and helped her find the best way to fulfill her role in the company. In addition, our client wanted advice on the design and implementation of various HR development measures within the company, such as a new leadership development program. The challenge of this project was to separate the process-accompanying role of the coach from that of the content-related and conceptual consultant. This was to ensure clarity in the process for both the coach and the coachee.
Team coaching for two team leaders at a bank

They also wanted to develop a unified leadership style and voice that they could present themselves with to employees, superiors, and colleagues.

Our client, a young high potential woman, received a year of career coaching to support her personal development.

Her unconscious behavioral and thought patterns were reflected upon and her behavioral repertoire was expanded accordingly. In addition, techniques for dealing with conflict situations were taught and successfully implemented by her. Finally, the coachee was supported in deciding which career path to pursue in the future.
Individual coaching - taking on the first leadership role
Our client had just taken on her first leadership role and wanted our support in dealing with the emerging challenges of her new position and develop appropriate courses of action. Some of the topics discussed were: how to structure your first team meeting, how to deal with a colleague who applied for the same position and how to get an overview of your employees' professional competencies without being too controlling. The result of the coaching was that the coachee felt empowered in her new leadership position, was able to grow into her new role and avoid pitfalls.
