Coaching – that is pure reflection, advancement and self-monitoring.
We work with the attitude of empowerment – “help for self-help” – and the approach of mindfulness. Together we reflect on current challenges and processes and consider your personal life as well as your structural role in the system. Together we discover options for action that remain effective in times of stress and crisis. In dialogue, you capture and develop your personal style in order to sustainably increase your effectiveness. Together we weigh up opportunities and risks so that you can reach decisions that are sustainable in the long term and carry you forward.
Coaching is a matter of trust – and that’s how we deal with it!
When does coaching make sense?
Coaching is the measure of choice if you need an opportunity for reflection, for example to assess developments, evaluate challenges or prepare decisions – in short, if you want to sort out your thoughts and benefit from an external sparring partner. Coaching supports your self-reflection and self-monitoring, expands your perspective and increases your decision-making confidence.
What topics can I discuss with my coach?
The topics that can be dealt with in a coaching are as diverse as the person itself. It is important to us to identify the central topic in the first phase and then jointly agree on a clear objective for the coaching. The variety of topics is vast, here is a selection of typical matters:
- Shaping change – in my sphere of responsibility or in my own life
- Addressing Leadership Challenges
- Individual career planning
- Conflict management, – if I am affected myself or act as a mediator in conflicts
- Purpose, meaning, authenticity
- my confident appearance
- Improved communication and understanding
- Stress and resilience
Coach and Coachee
We know from experience that in coaching the fit between coach and coachee is crucial. Therefore, we start with a coaching conversation with the mutual acquaintance and the clarification of the joint mission. If you feel that the coach is not the right conversation partner for you, you can end the coaching – we know tools and ways for a constructive conclusion in which you can clearly recognize what you have learned and take it with you.
There is no fixed rule for the duration of a coaching process. The range extends from a one-time session, in which acute topics are dealt with efficiently, to intensive 4-6 sessions to immerse oneself in deeper reflection of the overall situation relationships to regular meetings at large intervals, which serve to and repeatedly serve the self-assurance of the coachee. We once asked our colleagues: the longest coaching relationship has proven itself for over 20 years.
If you have a current occasion for a coach, you can find your contact person here via Call a Coach.
All our coaches have certified coaching training and/or many years of practical experience in coaching.
In our coaching sessions, we work with the systemic approach and the principle of solution-oriented coaching, which means that we consider not only you as an individual, but also your private and professional environment, because often the solution is in the resources that surround you directly. We assume that the solution to your problem or question lies in you and that you have lost or have not yet found access to it.
From our large repertoire of coaching tools, we select what will best help you move forward. From psychologists to business economists to engineers – our coaches have different theoretical backgrounds. What they have in common is that they only use the tools and methods that have proven themselves in consulting and coaching practice.
