I help you to overcome crises, face challenges, and navigate transformation processes on a personal and organizational level.
For better results, effective action, and holistic long-lasting impact.
I focus on 3 dimensions of transformation and innovation.
Developmental Stages, Purpose and the Structure of Consciousness
Our consciousness and mind(set) are primary in perceiving and interpreting reality.Thus, there is infinite leverage for change at this level: clarity and alignment in perception, (thought) structure and action through the connection with our developmental (or even evolutionary) purpose and a deeper sense of being (meaning and intention)
Building an open and empathic feedback and interaction culture with oneself and others. Empathy is a core skill and relational leadership is the practical application of it in today's society and our upcoming future.
Co-Develop dynamic systems for creating impact and navigating complexity. Setting strategic milestones to navigate towards a more compelling future.
