I am consultant, mediator, coach and facilitator with wide experience in international and intercultural settings. After many years working both in businesses and non-profit organisations — 4 years of which I held senior leadership position with responsibilities over personnel and several teams — I decided to work as an independent consultant for individuals and organisations in both sectors. My core competencies are the activation of resources, the resolution of conflicts, the facilitation of agreements, and the promotion of clarity, stability and structure.
In my work with people, teams and organisations, I always take into consideration various levels: the individual, the organisation and the context. My interdisciplinary work combines and integrates knowledge and techniques from different areas and disciplines. Depending on the assignment, the objective and the context, I make use of methodologies and techniques from mediation, organisational development, systemic consulting, coaching, short-term therapy, and psychology of communication, in addition to psychosocial approaches. Similarly, in my work I apply methodologies and techniques stemming from research on resilience, stress, trauma, as well as common concepts from strategy development and project management. My emphasis is always on the people and the objectives of my clients.
