Hi, I’m your scout!
10 years ago I embarked on my first pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago and it changed my life thoroughly. Meanwhile I have walked nearly 10.000 km throughout Spain, France, Italy, Portugal and Germany.
Thats how it began: My professional career first led me into economy. I worked for various international IT companies in consulting and sales before I worked for several years as a consultant, trainer and coach for the areas of sales, communication, cooperation and development of personality in business and administration at state and federal level. The everyday “madness” – pressure, challenges, stress, conflicts, etc. in work and family – are as familiar to me as creative growth times, successful community and successful achievement.
In my coaching sessions, I combine my many years of experience in business and administration with psychological methodology, knowledge of neurosciences and modern Christian faith based on love, mercy, trust, truth, freedom, repentance, awareness and responsibility. I stand in the midst of life and found the way, truth and life.
My real strength, however, lies in continuous self-study and strong scouting spirit, in lived succession to Jesus Christ, steady spiritual practice and learning from practical self-experience in light and dark times.
Yes: Ich bin ein Berliner! Free spirit, having transcended or pulled down walls and obstacles of all kinds, survivor of hard times but with unbroken vitality, openminded and a lover of peace and true healing.
