Working with me on an individual basis or as a team, you will benefit both from my broad industry expertise from more than 100 projects with utilities, industrial players, public sector institutions and associations and from my deep experience in developmental & transformational coaching.
- In 12 years of top management consulting as a consultant & partner with McKinsey & Company, Inc., I have led over 100 projects with companies in the energy sector, ranging from utilities & municipalities to equipment makers, industrial players, private equity firms, as well as public sector institutions and industry associations. I covered strategic topics, in particular with regard to future development of energy market and implications of climate change & sustainability, as well as organizational topics, e.g., reorganization of board responsibilities, setup & (re-) design of new business units, acquisitions, mergers & demergers of (parts of) companies, as well as large-scale performance transformations for business & support functions.
- For more than two decades, I have worked as a personal coach & mentor with individuals and with teams. I’ve led and developed individuals and teams in large academic settings, in my role as a McKinsey consultant & partner, and with my clients, ranging from 1:1 coaching situations (e.g., in career transitions for top executives & CEOs) to small executive team development work (e.g., in situations of re-definition of strategies or team recomposition) to larger scale work with cross-organizational teams (e.g., on complex industry studies around climate change & sustainability). In 2012, I was selected for the 2012/13 class of the Coach Certification Program led by Robert Kegan & Lisa Lahey (mindsatwork)
- My work & my thinking are founded in my academic education in social sciences, including a PhD and a postdoctorate degree ("Habilitation"). My academic studies covered topics ranging from the theory & implementation of international peace cooperations (M.A. Thesis), to the workings (and shortcomings) of political & diplomatic relationships in Early Modern Europe (PhD Thesis), to the success factors of change management in revolutionary times (Habilitation Thesis). Over the years, I have written & (co-) edited nine books and published more than a dozen articles in academic journals and compilations.
