Approaching professional and private changes and still not neglecting the full-time job is a balancing act that demands more capacities than I would have expected. The coaching “kept me on the way” and brought me further in every respect.

The goal-oriented approach, the mutual opening of new perspectives and the continuous support over a fixed period of time were the decisive factors for me. Brigitte combines well-founded technical know-how with a high level of social competence in a very special way.

On the threshold to an outstanding leadership position and with a personally obstructive, somewhat stuck conviction, Brigitte was a very good, stable and extremely helpful coach to me. With great expertise, empathy and a big heart, she guided me safely on my way, helped me to identify and pursue my goals. With great skill, she always captured the core issues precisely.

She thus helped me to confidently and successfully implement my professional and private goals. I was surprised at how much vigor she was able to unleash in me. I feel effective and empowered to take on further new challenges. Brigitte’s consistently optimistic and confident attitude was extremely contagious and still continues to affect me.

Brigitte’s coaching has enriched me professionally and personally and has brought me far beyond achieving my goals. I can unreservedly recommend Brigitte as a coach. She is a great gift for everyone who receives advice and support from her.

Brigitte’s greatest strength is her immense ability to listen deeply to what I am saying, not just what I am speaking. She is skilful in helping me discover the insights along the coaching journey rather than adopting a prescriptive approach. She exhibits great patience in her coaching method and has provided useful resources to help me in specific areas.

I have gained tremendous insights from Brigitte’s coaching sessions as I regard them as an asset to senior leaders in further discovering, validating leadership traits, values, behaviours, and methods. I would highly recommend her as a coach for senior people in leadership as she draws from a wealth of experience and will be of great help to them.
