Our Approach and Academic Collaborations

Our Approach and Academic Collaborations

All our programs are backed up by a solid academic foundation and rigor, to which I add all my valuable on-the-field professional expertise. Working with people from all over the globe and being in a bi-cultural partnership, I understand the daily challenge of our global life. We collaborate with academic institutions and regularly offer our expertise as guest lecturers. You will find that our philosophy toward coaching and training has five core pillars:


I bring a toolbox of methodologies and techniques for challenging participants and being agile enough to adapt and move quickly from one approach to another based on participant feedback. I subscribe to the philosophies of the agile manifesto and believe in their concept for structuring projects.


A critical part of any coaching or training program is understanding your needs. A significant amount of effort is put into seeking your feedback to measure the impact of the exercises. I developed a global competency model that regularly reviews your experiences and body learning to help you build knowledge, change your attitudes and enhance your skills.


I aim to get participants involved and make the process as active as possible. I apply learned knowledge in practice through thei own problem-solving, practical exercises or training others. I know that the retention factor is higher than in classical lectures. I went through my initial training in interactive training design with Thiagi, one of the greatest trainers alive.


I use a holistic approach based on the method of my coach educator Drs. Boudewijn Vermeulen (1939 – 2014), that was further developed by my mentor and coach Dr. Eva Kinast into a holistic, body-oriented, intercultural coaching method. This method focuses on relationships, the body-mind-heart connection and is linked to the psychology of Carl Gustav Jung. The concept of body learning is grounded in the research of Dr. Muneo Jay Yoshikawa and Eastern philosophies and practices. Reflected experiences are based on the single-loop and double-loop learning theory of Argyris and Schoen.


I work in a way that aims to bring out, share, and respect the views and stories of all participants and builds a constructive way forward for all. The systemic approach builds on Niklas Luhmann’s research and work.
