About me: Experience that counts
Business Health Coaching: athletic, entrepreneurial, international
Stages in life, one’s own culture, and personal goals make up a person. As I reflect, basketball as a competitive sport is at the center of my youth, which accompanied me over the years, up to my last position as a coach in the 2nd Bundesliga.
Stays in the USA, Japan and Amsterdam have shaped my professional and my personal life.
Professionally, I was able to get to know many different industries and companies as a personnel consultant, an experience that still accompanies me in coaching sessions today.
As the founder of a web platform that acted as a bridge between local Americans and German life, I dived into the digital world for the first time. I continued this in cooperation with the largest regional newspaper publisher in the Rhine-Main area. Subsequently, I built up and managed a digital agency for the publishing house.
As a half-Japanese, I am influenced by two cultures. All this makes me as a person and flows into my experience as a business coach for you.
Active years in sports: Basketball, Trainer 2nd Bundesliga
I was actively involved in basketball for many years – as a young athlete and recently as a basketball coach in the 2nd Bundesliga. My firm conviction stems from these times: it is possible to increase and optimally exploit potentials.
But as an athlete, I’m also familiar with the flip side of the performance medal: If you’re running at the limit and still want to deliver, you need a healthy self-concept – based on:
- Sensitivity to one’s own needs – as a basis for performance
- Interpret physical signals correctly – in terms of your mental and physical long-term health.
My coaching approach is also based on this self-concept to develop your potentials in harmony with a healthy performance.
Diverse business experiences: Basics for your coaching
Being a sparring partner for people in challenging situations or conflicts. And pointing out alternative courses of action that’s what drives me as a coach in direct collaboration.
Together we work on the goal of putting your concrete actions on a healthier basis: mentally, physically, emotionally, and in dialogue with colleagues or fellow human beings.
Business Health Coach: trained and certified
I completed my training as a certified business coach at the Dr. Bock Academy in Berlin – and as a certified group and team coach as a basis for coaching employees and managers in companies at the Institute for Health & Selfcare – INHESA®. In the foreseeable future, I will complete my experience with the certification as Health & Selfcare Coach Expert at INHESA®.
I am an Affiliate Member of the Institute of Coaching McLean, Affiliate of Harvard Medical School.
I look forward to being at your side as a Business Health Coach – with the extensive experience from my various life and career stations. Last but not least: Albert, my Labrador, will be happy to join you. But of course, only if you love dogs as much as I do.
