Eva-Maria Hartwich

Embrace differences to make a difference.

Hi, my name is Eva-Maria Hartwich. It is my passion for boosting people’s potential and my 20 years’ experience in international contexts that drove me to become an intercultural coach. I have experienced big changes in my life several times and know what is at stake and how it can feel. Getting valuable support in any change process is key for experiencing it as something positive. Everybody sees the world through their own glasses, and I try to do justice to this individuality. A practical approach, quality and relevance are important to me. A trustful atmosphere, openness, realistic goals, flexibility, creativity and humor (if appropriate) are important attributes too. My guiding principles in my work: Give meaning to your actions. Perceive cultural differences as an opportunity, value them, and identify, use and leverage existing potentials. I am looking forward to support you.

What Clients Say About Me

“With my three degrees I learned everything I need for my finance role. But the only thing I did not learn is the cultural aspect of how to work with people from other cultures. Now that I work in France and with Belgium, I realized it’s all about culture. I’m grateful that I have learned how to bridge the culture gap.”
Barry M., Associate Director of Finance, Allergan

“I am so grateful for your commitment, availability, support and the progress we made together, for your way of being, your attentiveness and orientation tools. It helped me tremendously while I was in a difficult personal and professional situation that I had never experienced before.”
Marlyse F., Health professional

“The cross-cultural coaching program with Eva-Maria was very valuable. She fully responded to my particular interests and concerns. The two most valuable things I have learned from the program with Eva-Maria were my cultural characteristics as compared to my host country’s (and an airline customer’s country) and how to best communicate and identify with people around the office.”
Jonathan D., Boeing Site Leader, Zodiac Seats France

“I had difficulty with accepting change and adapting to my new position during the reorganisation of our organisation. I am deeply grateful to Eva for helping me step outside the box and find my own solution. I appreciated her professionalism, listening skills, insight, clarity and great sense of humanity.”
Martine C. – Territorial Representative, Conseil départemental de la Drôme, France

“True-to-life, hands-on, individual, concrete.”
Carmen S., Expat spouse
