Almost 30 years in Corporate Human Resources and Consulting have shaped me.

For more than 15 years I am working as a Management Coach and Consultant in medium-sized companies and social organizations. As a speaker and author, I enjoy using new insights to stimulate a change of perspective and further development.

For 5 years I’m proud to be an entrepreneur myself and have been managing the company Breitenstein Consulting together with Tim Bookas.

The basis of successful teams is mutual trust and respect. I try to exemplify this in my customer relationships.

Participation is the most important key to bring people to change and to encourage initiative and commitment in them.

I value diversity and consider it an expression and a prerequisite for sustainability. I am deliberately methodically diverse and not a disciple of any particular method or school. And I attach great importance to evidence-proven and scientifically proven instruments and consulting methods.

I also try to live these principles in our team and with our partners, so that a professional relationship often develops into a friendship – the highest level of mutual trust, respect and belonging.
