My philosophy: I am aspiring to develop the individual, the team and the organisation system in their interconnectedness and work exclusively ‘to measure’, in close collaboration with my clients. Development has always an element of surprise, is generated by friction and creates energy.
I am able to stimulate others to be creative, to place oneself under scrutiny and to learn, only if I am doing that myself too.
And furthermore: I like to cause movement in complex patterns between people.
Development is nourished by circles of loving colleagues.
For relaxation I am painting, singing in a choir and I love to be in the country.
I like telling stories and use that as a working tool when it is fitting.
