“Accompanying change is my calling.”
Why do you work at ifok?
Facilitating change processes is my calling in life. I am what you might call a politically motivated criminal.
How long have you been at ifok and where were you before?
I have been working on change management processes for 28 years – with leaders, teams and individuals. I have gained experience in a number of different sectors – automotive, manufacturing, IT, finance and insurance, food and health and finally the public sector. The path led me to IFOK in January 2019.
What drives you in your working life?
I am known for putting body and soul into my work. I am totally driven by what I do. I consider myself pragmatic, diplomatic and solution-oriented but also good at drawing boundaries. I particularly enjoy working on complex problems with others and finding great new solutions. My credo is: be persistent, right up until the water has formed a new valley.
What do you like doing in your free time?
I write thrillers and short stories, like to cook and, when I have time, I go climbing, sailing or diving.
In which areas do you incorporate sustainability into your life?
I try to think sustainably in all areas of my life. This isn’t always easy and I am still learning. Recently I discovered wax wrap as an alternative to foil for wrapping up food.
Which three things can you not live without on a long train journey?
My water bottle, my handknitted socks and my computer or Kindle.
