Self- and Other-Awareness
Self- and Other-Awareness
We come into the world with a predisposition to use our brains in a certain way. Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung first stipulated his theory of psychological types in the 1920s; American mother-daughter pair Katherine Briggs and Isabel Briggs-Myers have been making it accessible through their questionnaire since the 1940s.
Understanding your preferences for Extraversion or Introversion, Sensing or Intuiting, Thinking or Feeling, and Judging or Perceiving offer valuable insights into how you communicate, manage stress, handle change, and interact in personal and professional relationships. The place and time where we grow up influences how we learn to express our preferences in a societally acceptable manner. That's why I'm on record as saying Type doesn't explain everything, and neither does Culture, but taken together, they provide a more complete picture.

Coaching is not yet a defined profession, so there are many people out there who call themselves Coach without proper training.
I was accredited by a German institute in coaching, I hold a BA in Human Resources Management, I'm an MBTI® Master Practitioner, certified in the Berens CORE™ Approach and the Neuroscience of Personality. I've lived in five countries over the past 20 years, and have work experience in corporate Germany, UK, Spain, and America. I've also started my own business and sub-contract with global service providers. I love to read books and blogs in a variety of fields, and when you coach with me you can pick my brains whichever way you like. I'm happy to share what I know and introduce you to my network.
Coaching is a professional relationship between two parties entering into an agreement in good faith. Coaching provides accountability and a safe, encouraging environment to practice behaviors on the way to reaching a goal. Results cannot be guaranteed. Furthermore, coaching cannot substitute and is NOT therapy. As my client you indemnify me and hold me harmless, and you understand that you are the sole responsible for your actions, as well as your physical, emotional and mental well-being.
I will treat your information with utmost confidentiality unless required to disclose it by law. If we coach online, I cannot be held responsible for data being retrieved through unauthorized hackers.
