Coaching for expats living in Germany
Life as an expat in Germany can be challenging and I am looking forward to helping you through the tougher phases you may encounter.
No matter where we live we take our issues with us but living in a foreign country can add to the pressure be it professional or private.
Thanks to my multinational background and with many years of expat experience I know all about the difficulties of starting from scratch in a culture and language you don’t fully understand yet.
Being half German I can give you answers to all of those questions you may be asking yourself. And as a solution expert with lots of intercultural life and professional experience I can help you develop successful strategies to master your current challenges.
Feel free to browse my website – under “business” as well as “life” you will find more information about typical topics I deal with. But there are many more and every person I work with brings along his or her individual and special story. I am looking forward to hearing yours.
I consider myself very fortunate to have grown up speaking three languages and travelling the world from an early age. Because my father worked in both Hong Kong and Jakarta I was lucky to live in different parts of the world as a child and realised how important successful communication is in shaping both private and professional relationships. Many years later as a happy mother of two lovely daughters, I also found out how challenging but also rewarding it is to make ends meet with both family and work obligations.
Professionally I decided to study business administration in Munich, and went on to work in corporate banking for Deutsche Bank. Working with entrepreneurs and gaining valuable insights into their daily lives made me want to start a company of my own. So I founded a small business language school which I have since been running for over 20 years. In working with small companies as well as major corporations such as Allianz, BMW and Microsoft, I learned that it is often human relationships and not technical facts which ultimately makes the difference between success and failure – be it with clients or employees.
Therefore, when I felt like exploring new professional paths more than 10 years ago, the decision to put people first came naturally. It is an important goal for me to treat humans with respect and empathy regardless of their origin and age.
I look forward to looking at your life and developing solutions and new ideas for your future with you.
