Me as a Coach
I am an experienced coaching partner for individuals who desire to harness the power of their potential. I create meaningful partnerships with my clients and I want support my clients to recognize, embrace and bring forward their uniqueness and excellence. I have specialized in executive, career coaching and leadership development. Over the past ten years I have worked with leaders in organizational effectiveness, continuous improvement, management development and professional/personal transformation in public and private sectors across the US, Europe and the Middle East.
My Vision is that I want to increase the same breakthroughs in the way we treat each other as we have achieved in technology. I want to enable individuals to transform their way of thinking, their way of being and their organizations. Everybody can make a difference in any position. This creates a snowball effect which is symbolized on my website by the dandelion.
The idea behind the company name has several reasons. My company in Dubai/Abu Dhabi is named FirstStep and 2ndStep is my logical next step. This is the same for my clients. Whatever they did until now was big or small step in their career or life. I will help them make their important 2nd step. Whatever their or my third step may be, it will be exciting.
German is my first language but I am fluent in Italian and English. I have a PhD in Sociology and Economics with summa cum laude. My professional journey includes extensive hands-on experience in various industries and roles. I have worn many hats as an executive, entrepreneur, board member, team leader, project manager, consultant and fundraiser. I’ve lived since 2013 in Washington DC with my husband and three children and enjoy opera, traveling, and organizing events for social groups.
