systemic coaching and change management (Almut Probst) 
almut probst organizational consulting 

The participants learn a basic format for each coaching session in order to be able to successfully manage the first coaching sessions. To work out the coach's concern clearly and to formulate it in a solution-oriented way is an important methodical step in the coaching discussion. We introduce the systemic-constructivist way of working and attitude. In order for the new to unfold in the coaching process, the appreciation of the old is necessary. It is therefore important that the coach has an attitude that is free of judgement and appreciation, that draws attention to the potential, so that it becomes free for the people and the task.
