Personality

Each person is an individual with regard to the way he or she feels, thinks and acts. His or her personality does not always suit a given professional or private situation. Certain steps need to be taken: rejecting the old, taking on the new and setting priorities. Often such challenges cannot be dealt with alone. The professional view of a third party, fresh incentives and methods and emotional support are necessary if one is to move forwards.

We are aware of how a personality can change and we have the necessary empathy, knowledge and methodological skills to support people along the path of individual development.

We take on the following tasks on behalf of our clients:

  • consulting and support in adopting changes with regard to personal career development,
  • devising and running seminars on specific topics such as self-management, time management, life balance, conflict as opportunity, dealing with change.

«In the eyes of a crab, everyone else is moving sideways.»

I am fascinated by the various ways in which we perceive and see what is around us and use this as a basis for our convictions, different types of behaviour and concepts; they are a challenge to me in my daily work. When I am dealing with individuals, groups or organisations I try to ensure that these differences can be used as a source of enrichment and a basis for new solutions. In this respect, my experience and knowledge, sense of humour and enthusiasm stand me in good stead.
