»As a data security manager, I was often seen as a ‘killjoy’. That’s all changed now. People appreciate the importance of my work, and I’ve found my place.«
As a manager in a ‘sandwich position’, you will be only too familiar with problems like this. Demands come flooding in from every side – from the boardroom, from your colleagues and from members of your team. And on top of all that, you’ve got your friends and family to think about…
Juggling all these different demands is not easy. Good communication skills and an engaging style are your most valuable tools.

Business Coaching: Communication, Persuasiveness , Leadership
A successful career calls for communication and leadership skills, as well as personal development. Typical issues addressed in my business coaching sessions include:
Training: Empathic Communication
In this seminar, you’ll learn how to use the Professionelle Präsenz® (professional presence) method for meetings, dialogues and establishing strong relationships. You’ll learn how to better assess people’s characters, to discuss their motivation with them and to lead them.
You’ll be shown how to identify the degree of escalation in conflict situations and how to react in an adequate, constructive manner. Throughout all of this, you’ll remain mentally calm – or at least calmer than you ordinarily would have been.
Certain occasions, such as media appearances or debates, call for a more combative approach to which end you will receive coaching aimed at honing your repartee and using it without causing your opponent or yourself to lose face. My recommendation in this respect is to cultivate amicable approaches or, better still, your sense of humour!
Training: Presenting in English as a Foreign Language
You are a non-native speaker. Your English is probably not as good as that of a native speaker. But you can still enhance your persuasive power in presentations and discussions conducted in English.
This is not primarily a language course, but a training course in which you will learn how to tackle things you are unsure about in the foreign language. You will learn the verbal and non-verbal arts of public speaking. This will enable you to perform in a confident and credible way even in the foreign language, ensuring your success on the international stage.
