AS EXECUTIVE COACH ... www.westwood-works.de
You can be assured, you are working with an experienced sparring partner, systemic, concentrated and goal-oriented, ... with depth and precision, ... provocative, but always open, honest and with a good portion of humour. Twenty years performing, directing and designing have shaped my
perception of what good communication is, ... and can achieve. This benefits me as coach, moderator and consultant in a wide range of tasks.
As an appreciative companion, I support people and organisations in change and decision-making processes, in discovering unimagined resources,
in creating new perspectives in order to achieve clarity and develop optimal courses of action. In my work with individuals, teams and organisations,
I strive to leave behind a well-reflected, reliable and self-determined framework for future thoughts and actions.
I consider myself an enabler and a giver. I am personally committed is to improve the quality of the lives of those I encounter, and exactly this will be
my measure. I employ my talents, beliefs, intuition and diverse methods to catalyze, motivate and inspire positive change, to enhance personal development, through clarity of mission, roles, aspirations and goals for individuals and for organizations. Identifyingf unused potential, engaging
muse and creativity in the art of aligning human reason and human capabilities skillfully with those of organizations, strategies and technologies
in order to achieve genuine holistic solutions and best possible results.
