Andrea thrives on change, and has chosen consulting and coaching as her profession because it allows her to move around in many different environments. She believes she can add most value to her clients by bringing to bear her experiences from completely different contexts, and pointing out new possibilities.
Andrea has been wearing “two hats” for her entire professional life. She combines a psychology background with strategy consulting experience; an MBA with art therapy training; and her coaching experience with her corporate experience (which has put her ‘in the shoes of the client’). She believes in the importance of integrating commercial and human values, and is passionate about facilitating the “people” aspects of transformations. This can take the shape of a culture change program to support the strategy, a team alignment intervention to help a team collaborate for results, or an executive coaching one on one to help create awareness and responsibility and help a leader step up in a new role.
Andrea exchanged one exciting metropolis for another: she left Berlin a few years ago to live in London. While she enjoys the thoroughness, professionalism and quality inherent in the German culture, she also likes the tolerance, creativity and drive of the UK’s capital – another set of hats to combine. She thrives in truly global settings where the different nationalities bring another challenge to the work.
Andrea loves to cook with friends and family, and enjoys hiking in her beloved ‘home mountains’, the Alps. She loves the urban life just as much as the calming presence of the seaside.
