Nice to meet you!
To me it is clear that people matter profoundly. If we want to solve the world’s most important and urgent challenges we have to make sure that people can thrive in environments (social as well as physical and technological) that allow their brilliant ideas to become reality.
I have come to the conclusion that I want to use my life to detect and help to unfold the potential of people and organisations. Therefore I have carved out a personal mission that guides me in everything I do. I measure myself against it every single day. My mission is to strive towards and to point out opportunities to grow for me and others. By listening and observing mindfully and acting according to it I add depth and value in everything I engage in. I look for the positive and beautiful in my environment, in others and in me and (help to) unfold its full potential.
My Expertise & Experience
I’ve studied psychology at the Ludwig Maximilians-Universität in Munich, the Universität des Saarlandes in Saarbrücken, Germany and the Università degli Studi di Trieste in Italy. Next to the scientific and quantitative approaches I discovered my passion for strength-based approaches, beginning with Appreciative Inquiry and ranging over Theory U to Participatory Action Research.
I started my career with one foot in the hospitality industry and another in the world of consultancy and combined these two areas in 2018 when co-creating a start-up providing L&D solutions for service-minded businesses. With Dare to Imagine I continue this journey, making the world and our business more hospitable places.
