When starting my new management assignment, I suddenly faced enormous pressure to be successful from the start. Comprehensive new topics and problems with individual employees led to overloading and continuous stress. Doris helped me to re-gain clarity and control of processes and priorities and to establish new styles of behaviour. Today I can stay calm and relaxed even in the most difficult situations. I really do benefit from my coaching both on the job and in my private life.Head of Quality & Compliance, Pharma industry
What I appreciate most from my coaching that I have learnt to take on different perspectives. Today I can understand and accept different behaviours much better, see the inherent advantages of diverse opinions and benefit from them. Since the coaching I can deal much better with difficult conversations and situations. Doris also helped me to clarify what really matters to me and where my limits are.Director Sales, Banking
