What people say

Birgitta is a resourceful coach, thoughtful, compassionate and always agile to offer a new path. She understands the business environment well and realistically assesses what options are effective and fit for purpose. Whenever I was pessimistic about my level of influence Birgitta found the lever of positive energy and encouraged me to take the next safe-enough step in my personal growth.

Birgitta’s sehr gelungene Ausgewogenheit, mich empathisch zu begleiten und gleichzeitig dabei auch herauszufordern und mir zuzutrauen notwendige Veränderungsschritte zu gehen, hat mich in vielen Situationen große Stücke weitergebracht.

Birgitta a le talent rare de savoir combiner l’intelligence collective et la prise en compte de l’individu dans toute sa singularité. Birgitta a une grande expérience des relations humaines à l’International et a conduit des projets de transformation à forts enjeux. Elle en a conservé l’humilité et la modestie qui lui permettent d’avancer en permanence sur le chemin de l’excellence.

J’ai eu la chance de rencontrer Birgitta lors de supervisions collectives organisées pour des accompagnateurs de carrière. Que ce soit lors de la préparation des séances ou lors des séances même, Birgitta s’est montrée très flexible et à l’écoute des besoins de chacun. Son approche professionnelle, basée sur une expérience solide du monde organisationnel et des relations humaines font de Birgitta un partenaire de choix dans l’accompagnement des personnes. Birgitta aborde la supervision avec bienveillance, ce qui a le don de mettre tous les participants à l’aise et en confiance. Je collaborerais de nouveau avec grand plaisir avec Birgitta.
