We – as your change facilitators – have been self-employed for more than 40 years. An immense wealth of experience from many sectors, specialist areas, roles and functions. We were and are successful agile new workers - and have been since a time when these terms meant something to very few. Permanent change and reorientation are among the constants of our lives.
As a modern couple that consistently share our tasks and responsibilities 50:50 - and unite our professional identity and role as entrepreneurs and leaders with the family - we are true role models for the New Leadership Generation. With this mindset that we espouse, we support and accompany your change processes, both personal and business, fast and iterative. We have many professional and private stages of life behind us. This allows us to bring empathy, experience and foresight into our work with you whilst at the same time
, draw from both the traditional and the new world of work. We recognise the interdependencies and areas of tension between people, economy, technology and nature.
For us, equality and equal treatment of all people with all their idiosyncrasies is just as much a matter of course as equal pay and diversity. Our values are reflected in what we do, with whom we do it and how we do it: freedom, courage, openness, honesty, responsibility, achievement, learning, zest for life and a humanistic attitude.
We are passionate surfers. We recharge our batteries with this sport and get inspiration for our professional and private advancement. Successfully riding a wave is the result of intensive preparation, strength, endurance, courage and respect for the force of nature. Every wave is unique. Just like in the world of work, we move in an element that is constantly changing and requires constant adaptation to the conditions if we do not want to sink, but ride the wave with success and joy.

– Steve Jobs
It is our deep conviction that a reliable network and close exchange with other experts and specialists is a win-win situation for all involved. We embody cooperation by sharing our knowledge, making efforts for and together with others and cultivating collaboration with scientifically oriented institutes.
We work with the combined experience of a team of business leaders. We have experienced many of your issues ourselves in our own professional lives as managers and entrepreneurs. The experience we have gained helps us to quickly familiarise ourselves with - and empathise with - your change topic.
As coaches, we often know immediately which areas require attention and can support you empathically. The focus is on the person involved in systems and configurations and their potential for development. Our work is independent, impartial and open-ended. We are constantly educating ourselves to ensure that we are always methodologically and professionally up to date.
Many methods and tools, which we choose according to the latest scientific findings, are available for selection in our innovating and coaching formats. We take the necessary time to analyse your concerns and then select the appropriate tools, instruments and methods. There are no standards with us, only tailor-made concepts and solutions for you.
The Personality Profiler (LPP) of the Lüneburg Institute for Corporate Learning (LINC) plays a major role in our variety of methods as a diagnostic element. This online tool for personality analysis is based on the globally recognised and used Big Five Model (OCEAN Model), a psychological standard for describing personality.
The LPP enables a holistic and at the same time differentiated presentation of character, motives and competencies which has excellent psychological foundations whilst also being practical.
We are certified as LPP Senior Coaches and authorised to use the online tool and to carry out further measures such as coaching or workshops based on it.
Our experience has shown that coaching, team development, conflict resolution and many other measures lead to the goal considerably faster and more efficiently if an LPP analysis has been carried out as an introduction/in preparation. All further decisions on the choice of our tools are derived from this.
