"Be the change you want to see in others!"

Empowerment and enabling – these key words are the inspiring guideline of my trainings and workshop sessions. You gain intercultural competence so that you can move confidently in India by mastering various challenges in your business successfully. Additionally you learn how to improve the collaboration with your Indian colleagues and bring team effectiveness to the next level. Working for more than 25 years as an executive and senior expert in international business India is my favorite country, where I spent almost 3 years of my life. I worked there in the fields of education and R&D. Bridging the cultural gap is highly necessary to perform well. As a theologian and philosopher I’m deeply convinced that success in business comes due to winning the hearts of the people you are dealing with. According to my experience mutual respect, empowerment and shared values are boosters for an outstanding team performance. Being a crosscultural trainer and consultant specialized on India I’m working for your success in India. Besides crosscultural training I’m ready to support you to bring your team effectiveness to the next level and help you to implement leadership excellence.
