Tilman’s experience, his true empathy, the atmosphere of confidentiality …as well as his unique way of understanding people helped me gradually build trust …I got a much deeper understanding about myself, my career objectives and life goals. I also developed a concrete action plan…His professionalism, communication techniques, psychological expertise, industry knowledge of automotive and HR Management skills highly contributed to this very positive outcome.
Through Tilman’s coaching I came to a better knowledge and understanding of myself, in particular why I would react in certain situations the way I did. Those insights in combination with the methods and advice …helped me better master different situations. In the future this will give me great support in my personal development not only to my professional but also to my private life.
I became more self-confident and determined on my career path development… What impressed me most during the coaching process was the way how he helped me overcome some misperceptions by confronting me with evident truths of daily life.
Tilman …is truly wise, knowledgeable and thoughtful. As a coachee, you naturally feel like opening up and share with him…I always received precise feedback due to his character traits, experience and knowledge in various areas such as history, philosophy and humanity.
The most valuable learning …was the way Tilman showed me how to look at problems and obstacles in both work and private life from a bigger perspective. This resulted in a general mindset adjustment and action planning, … In comparison to a traditional top down “teaching and explaining” approach the result of this (coaching) had a much more sustainable, direct and positive effect on me than any training could have ever had.
