In our globalized world, people work across borders. That is why I offer specialized facilitation, mediation, consulting and training for intercultural cooperation and conflict at work.
To overcome language barriers, I am able to provide all my services in English, French, German, Italian or Russian. In order to ensure in-depth competence for specific world regions and working cultures, I rely on a strong network of intercultural cooperation partners.
My mission is simply explained: I want to improve cooperation and reduce conflict at work.
Throughout my professional life, I realized how much success depends on the way we work together and deal with each other. That is why I decided to make work a better place.
Even though the mission is simple, it is not always easy to accomplish. Sometimes, positive change at work needs professional support. As a dialogue facilitator, conflict mediator, organizational consultant, communication trainer and intercultural coach, I provide expertise for individuals, teams and organizations.
I have an academic background in social sciences, international cooperation and law. In my Bachelor and Master studies at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, University of Montréal, Passau University, Higher School of Economics Moscow and University College London, I specialized in conflict research, international cooperation and discourse analysis. Or in short: how people communicate and cooperate.
Since then, I completed professional training as communication trainer, intercultural coach and international facilitator. I have advanced training in large group facilitation, professional speaking and nonviolent communication together with multiple years of experience in dialogue facilitation and conflict mediation, organizational consulting, communication and leadership training as well as international collaboration.
