Klara Denzin

Interaction and communication between different cultures has always been an important part of my life. I build bridges between people of different cultures. Intercultural competence and individual coaching are the foundations of my daily work.

Solution orientation and visualization are important for me at my coaching – and of course fun in the further development for coach and coachee. For me, coaching is like Polynesian sailing with the coachee – working out a strategy to move in complex systems.

Additional Work Experience

After finishing University in Budapest and in Cologne I moved to South Africa and worked as a business consultant for Ernst & Young Management Services. During this time, which was shortly after the Apartheid, I worked on a number of development projects and was a member of Nelson Mandela’s Presidential Project Team.

Following 2 years of successful work in South Africa I moved to Germany and founded my business klara denzin cross culture. During the early stages of the development of my business I primarily consulted German and Hungarian businesses in terms of commerce and language.

In 2007 I qualified as a teacher for German as a Foreign Language. After 5 years as a freelancing German teacher at the Goethe-Institute I opened up my own Office.

In addition to my work as a consultant, I am currently working as a lecturer for Intercultural Competence at the Heilbronn University.

As a language teacher and business consultant I consider recognition, appreciation and integration of diversity to be some of the most important values in my profession. My aim is to strengthen and to maintain the appreciation of diversity in the companies and institutions I work for. I truly believe that companies and organizations should create a working environment free of prejudice. To support these values, I take part regularly in various projects related to diversity management and in addition, I have signed the “Charta der Vielfalt” (Diversity Charter).
