Claudia specialises in working with executives with regional or international responsibilities. Having worked in virtual teams in fast-paced environments in her own career, she deepened her understanding of the complexities of remote management through research and teaching in this field. Her in-depth exploration of the issues and best practices of working across geographies and cultures using virtual technologies enables her to effectively support clients working in highly dynamic global contexts. She can coach to native speaker standard in English and German and has experience of coaching individual clients, group coaching and team coaching.
Claudia’s coaching style creates a reflective environment that enables clients to clarify issues, create solutions and achieve goals, and to manage transitions successfully. This is achieved through working in partnership with the client to maximise clients’ potential by:
- increasing self-awareness through identifying strengths, values, and influence of other factors such as cultural background
- considering the organisational and wider systemic context
Specialist sector knowledge includes Financial Services, IT, Media and the legal sector.
