Procedure and Logistics

A successful interaction between coach and coachee is based on mutual trust and sympathy. Therefore I always begin my coaching with a preliminary meeting free of charge. We get to know each other personally, discuss your issues and together define possible goals and the length of time we want to work together. You learn about my approach, methods and procedures. Furthermore, we will agree on terms and conditions.

In my experience, a consultation takes between five and ten sessions of 60 to 90 minutes each. Coaching is an interactive process and demands your active participation not only during the individual sessions but also between them. Therefore at the end of each session, I will give you things to work on. This will enable you to integrate your new insights through changed behavior into your everyday life. That is the only path to effective learning.

Career counseling sessions will usually take place once every two to three weeks. After an introductory phase the intervals between coaching sessions, however, can be longer – up to three months.

Usually the sessions will take place in the framework of a face-to-face meeting in Berlin. For clients outside of Berlin or abroad I offer consultations by phone or skype. It might sound counterintuitive, but coaching via phone works well.

Training programs will be discussed with the client and developed individually for each target group according to content, complexity, length and travel costs, if necessary.
