"Don´t be afraid of flying. Be afraid of not flying.”
I started working as an intercultural trainer in 2006 and delivered since then hundreds of trainings and workshops in different languages in more than 10 countries (Europe, Latin America and Africa). Topics are mainly intercultural awareness, international team building and preparation for specific countries (mainly Spain, Latin America and Germany).
Since 2012, I work as a life and business coach, supporting executives and their families around leadership challenges and getting settled in a new context. Certified now as PCC by the International Coach Federation (ICF), I have delivered much more than 1.000 coaching sessions of individual and group coaching.
In the last years, my main focus is international leadership and team development, coaching and training in more than 10 countries (Europe, Latin America and Africa).
Apart from coaching and training, my work experience started in the Academic world of linguistics and foreign languages. My four years in Venezuela, working as representative of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) taught me how to lead a team, how to promote Germany as a great country for higher education, how to do PR and networking and much more. And I learnt there how German I really am, in spite of my broad international experience. Beside my coaching and training, I never left Academia and teach Intercultural Management at ESB Business School of Reutlingen University.
“I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Dorothee during my last Intercultural Training as one of my relocation activities here in Germany. From the very first moment, Dorothee impressed me with her ability to be articulate about difficult concepts, her sensitivity, talent and empathy and her passion for coaching me as a professional and person also. I became a better version of myself after our meeting and she encouraged me with all her warm support to follow my own track and keep growing, leaving apart some of my old fears.”

“Coaching was a wholly new and entirely positive experience for me. Dr. Kaiser’s coaching methodology focused not on analyzing the roots of my behavior, but on how to move forward. […] At the end of the coaching I was not simply left behind with an understanding of my challenges. Rather, I was outfitted with several useful tools with which to productively engage with these and coming issues.”

“Frau Dr. Kaiser hat uns im vergangenen Jahr in der Entwicklung unseres neuen Firmenleitbilds begleitet und uns sehr individuell und kreativ dabei unterstützt, unsere eigenen Vorstellungen zu entwickeln und im Unternehmensalltag zu verankern. In ihrer Beratung und Moderation lässt sie den notwendigen Diskussionen Platz, führt ein kluges Zeitmanagement und sorgt am Ende für Ergebnisse.“
