About Me - The Edge I offer

A coach on my level is a holistic thinking partner, not someone who knows coaching questions. In over 20 years of one-on-one experience with top managers, I have not only kept learning from them, but also constantly upgraded my own skills to match the steep learning curve of my clients. (Which is part of why I love this work...)

My LinkedIn-Profile will give you an impression of professional topics I care about.
