Can we be sure that we are aware of something without reflecting about it? Self-awareness is essential to the nature of conscious experience. As both science and the experience of seasoned leaders reports, there's much bias between our perception and what it means to lead well. Finding and calibrating my purpose, uncertainty coping mechanisms and patterns of bias has been an ongoing journey in this work. While helping leaders envision future scenarios for the operation of their business and diving into the life of their teams, I have also become their confidant in decision making that emerged from their values, narratives, background, relationships and coping patterns. Accompanying both emerging and established entrepreneurs and executives through business and life related challenges shapes my skill to engage in the art of dialogue. In my education I combine clinical psychology, neuroscience and psychotherapy with coaching, introspection seminars and meditation. I participate in a long-term psycho-dynamic therapist training to deepen my knowledge about supporting leadership. In my practice and speaking engagements I advocate for leaders‘ mental health and inclusive work environments for all cognitive styles, personality types and individual trajectories.
