Educational background

From studying culture to coaching leaders

How did I get from studying cultures to coaching leaders? I have always been interested and fascinated by Japan and China so it was a natural progression after finishing high school to pick Japanese and Chinese Studies as subjects in university. Linguistics, Philosophy and Culture were also topics that interested me so I decided to learn more about that, too:

Magister Artium in Chinese and Japanese studies, Language philosophy, Didactics and Cross-Cultural Communication 
Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich 2001-2009

The Chinese language isn’t something you can learn effectively without actually being on site so I moved to Taiwan twice to improve my language skills and also get some experience in working in a Chinese culture environment.

Chinese language and culture (study abroad)
Shifan University Taipei, Taiwan (2006 and 2009/10)

I financed my travels and stays abroad mainly through teaching German, Chinese and English – and since as early as 2006 online tutoring was already an option I took a course in Online Language Tutoring, learning how to employ various tools and devices (Webex, Lync, Skype etc.)

Supporting leaders

During my time in Asia I realized that cultural barriers posed quite a problem in the business context. I wanted to understand more about that and additionally learn how to coach and support leaders. After my return to Germany I enrolled in an intense training program:

International Leadership Program (full training program)
Body oriented executive coaching
Dr. Eva Kinast&Boudewijn Vermeulen, Munich 2011/2012

After successfully graduating from that program my appetite for further improving my coaching skills just grew bigger and bigger. Consequently I took a variety of courses and trainings to widen my coaching and facilitation spectrum, for example:

Basics of improvisational theater (intensive workshop)
Fastfood Theater München 2014

Voice Dialogue according to Hal&Sidra Stone (further education)
Ulrike Dahm Munich 2015

In 2012 I founded my own coaching, training and consulting business and I have been working with clients from various industries and fields ever since! It is my mission to help others find ways to live, love and lead more successfully.
