Human meets HumanViktor Frankl
Why did I choose to become a coach? What has motivated me?
First of all, our professional world which has been constantly changing for a number of years, has inspired me to do so. The increasing digitalisation has greatly accelerated our communication processes. Permanent availability at any time and for everyone as well as decisions which are expected to be made immediately are just two of the symptoms of our professional lives.
Which effects are caused by this pace and constant preasure to perform?
There is hardly time left to breathe and think unless you actively choose to allow yourself some room. Within the coaching tools I had found a suitable answer to this phenomenon: coaching means freedom to stop, rest and find a strategy. A good coach is a companion and always meets his counterpart on an equal footing. With your coach as an active listener, you can think aloud and thus find answers to questions. Confidentiality is the top premise – that’s the only way to guarantee that you feel comfortable and encouraged to address all the scenarios that may cross your mind.
For me, coaching and counselling mean freedom, deceleration, further development, retreat and deliberately planned time for reflection. It is wonderful to accompany my clients and to be able to participate in the success of the interlocutors!
