Coaching in English

 Nowadays, when we face numerous challenges in the VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) world, the continuous learning and development of intercultural sensitivity are crucial to thriving across cultures. The Intercultural Compass offers you guidance on how YOU CAN PROFIT FROM my support as your personal coach.

Have a look at the following coaching areas and decide which one applies to your situation best:

NARRATIVE INTERCULTURAL COACHING 

WHO can profit from this coaching? 

  • Members of multicultural (also virtual) teams
  • Members of international projects
  • Employees working with people from around the world
  • Expatriates who have moved to Germany

WHAT can be the focus?

  • Dealing with challenges that appear due to differing working styles, leadership and management perception and different understanding of giving and receiving feedback, performance, decision making and commitment among people from different cultures
  • Recognizing and understanding intercultural differences and development of strategies to cope with misunderstandings and conflicts 
  • Bringing more lightness in working and living across cultures
  • Motivating yourself as well as your peers and colleagues from different cultures

WHY does it enhance positive changes?

  • The focus of the Narrative Intercultural Coaching lies in learning from your own and other peoples’ stories so that you can act in a sovereign way in the intercultural field. It is about abandoning stories that are limiting you and about retelling “worn-off” scenarios to empower you to be the author of activating stories that empower and motivate you and people in your surroundings. 
  • It sharpens the perception of the own world of cultural obviousness and enhances perspective change
  • It empowers you on the way to detect your talents and appreciate diversity and ambiguity present in the intercultural context

EXECUTIVE COACHING

WHO can profit from this coaching?

  • Managers and leaders who manage and lead employees from different cultures
  • Executives who work virtually in the complex projects across cultures
  • Team leaders who wish to guide their members to co-creation of the high performance team

WHAT can be the focus?

  • Motivating and enhancing commitment among employees from different cultures
  • Finding the balance between management and leadership tasks and daily operational tasks and defining future strategy
  • Applying situational leadership in accordance with employees’ cultural influences, level of motivation and their level of development/expertise
  • Development of the leadership-, social-, personal- and systemic competences

WHY does it enhance positive changes?

  • Your attitude and personal authentic leadership skills matter and you can work on their improvement
  • In the complex world, there is a high demand for leaders with global mindsets that embrace noticing and understanding cultural motivations as well as adapting your own communication and leadership skills to the new setting, without losing the effectiveness. 
  • Courageous actions require a courageous mindset and that one is based on trust in your own abilities and talents, clarity of your guiding principles and values and acknowledgment of opportunities to initiate and implement positive changes.

STRESS-REDUCTION & RESILIENCE COACHING

WHO can profit from this coaching?

  • People who do not enjoy their work any more and feel overwhelmed and continuously stressed out
  • People who wish to gain more optimism, goal and solution orientation as well as overall lightness in everyday life
  • People who perceive working in the intercultural context as challenging and even exhausting
  • People who face difficulties in commitment to their current tasks and lack motivation to perform to their highest potential

WHAT can be the focus?

  • Self-reflection on status-quo and the desired change
  • Identifying and applying strategies to deal with stress 
  • Creating strategies to cope with the culture shock (if this applies)
  • Resilience Development

WHY does it enhance positive changes?

  • The stress-reduction coaching focuses on bringing balance into your daily routine, so that you can perform and reduce stressful situations
  • It enhances your resilience development, so that you can switch from the negative perception to the optimistic attitude and acknowledge learning from the mistakes
  • It is to improve your life quality

WORK-LIFE-DESIGN

WHO can profit from this coaching?

  • People who are moving or have moved to the new country and are searching for new tasks (not necessarily in the new job but also in the voluntary engagement)
  • People who wish to identify their talents and live and work accordingly to them
  • People who are seeking professional change

WHAT can be the focus?

  • Identifying your own potentials, resources and strengths
  • Setting priorities and finding a new orientation
  • Awakening new sources of motivation and identifying your own ikigai

WHY does it enhance positive changes?

  • Because life is too short to stick to something that is not fulfilling YOU and is not in accordance with your talents and wishes.
