Testimonials - Excerpts:
"Hats off, Beate, I couldn't have done it better myself" (statement of an owner, technology company, 1,000 employees on the successful handling of a personnel matter with an exposed executive).
... "Thank you very much for your commitment, with you I have finally found the successor in management that I have always wanted. Unfortunately, my son does not have the entrepreneurial gene" (owner of a medium-sized company, 700 employees)
"...Agreed goals were always implemented successfully and on time or ahead of schedule, which also had a very positive effect on the planned overall restructuring budget. She always had good, innovative ideas, gave valuable suggestions, independently took all necessary measures and carried them out decisively even under difficult working conditions and with sensitivity.
In the negotiations, she understood how to safeguard and enforce the interests of the management, while always keeping an eye on the social aspects. In this way, the organisational realignment of the company could be handled quietly and sensibly. Beate was also responsible for ensuring that there was timely and adequate regular communication from the human resources department to the employees and management on all relevant topics and current issues, including together with the works councils." (CEO pharmaceutical industry, 2,000 employees)."
"Beate quickly gained an overview of the economic situation of the company, identified the most important points for necessary change and made some organisational changes. She discussed the company analysis with the supervisory board and was given the mandate to implement the entire change process. With her clear and open management style as well as her committed manner, she quickly succeeded in improving cooperation and communication within the management team, with the works councils and the employees...Thus, the organisational realignment of the company could be handled timely and prudently, among other things by setting up a transfer company, which was positively received by the employees." (Chairwoman of the Supervisory Board, special machine construction, 80 employees)."
I would like to inform you about a change in my career. I have been working for xx in the X- department as an in-house consultant since October. I enjoy the work a lot and it corresponds exactly to my ideas. It was the right decision. My plan has worked out. My boss bullied me so much that only a change could help. My application phase was intense but the will was so strong that it worked out. Thank you for your support during this difficult process. Now I am harvesting the fruits of it.
I wish you all continued success. You are an excellent coach and any company would be lucky to count you as a management consultant." (Coachee in re-orientation)
