My core competencies

 

Of trust, courage and resilience

Expertise is essential in what I do as the head of lead & conduct. Complex challenges require a professional and trained approach. In addition to this knowledge, which I have acquired over decades, I also bring skills to our joint project that can make all the difference.

Represent a positive image of humanity.

With great conviction, I hold a positive view of humanity. This attitude enables me to give other people the benefit of the doubt, which pays off in particular when I am also trusted more than other people.

In addition, I fundamentally believe in the good in people. I don’t let anyone talk me out of this positive view. Rather, I first of all assume that others basically mean me no harm and thus act accordingly. In my opinion, such an attitude leads to a freer and altogether more positive life. That’s why even people I don’t know quickly give me a certain amount of trust, which has a very positive effect on my professional and private contacts. After all, trust is the glue that holds social relationships together.

In my projects, I try not only to positively infect other team members, and thus improve the climate in the team. Rather, I actively and cogently argue against negative attitudes and slogans, so that negative thought patterns do not become even more widespread than before.

Dealing well with stresses

I learned how to deal with stress very early on. Stress is therefore much less of a problem for me than for other people, as I am able to cope well with heavy loads and keep a cool head.

The stresses caused by private and professional challenges continue to grow. My ability to deal constructively with such situations therefore pays off practically every day for my clients as well. Where others get stressed and even collapse under the pressure, I stand my ground and remain calm. That is another of my core competencies.

In contrast, of course, demands and pressures don’t completely roll off me. But they have less of an effect on me. As a result, I am particularly appreciated by colleagues and clients for my performance under stress. When the pressure keeps mounting, everyone who knows me knows that I don’t simply buckle, but rather give everything for success.

On the other hand, however, I also try to communicate my limits to others and to represent them strictly – even if this means that a project cannot be brought to a successful conclusion at times. After all, health is above all else, of course, and we must protect it. That’s why I also consistently reject attempts to shift stress from one to the other.

Confident appearance

There are very few things that cause us to become insecure or embarrassed. Because we don’t promise anything that we can deliver. As a result, we perform confidently in a wide variety of situations without having to play that security.

It is relatively unimportant on which parquet we move. Of course, there are also situations for us from time to time that are completely new or unfamiliar. But even in such moments, we find our inner center faster than others and thus regain our balance. Since we are rarely embarrassed by anything and we hardly ever let others’ comments upset us, we come across to those around us as self-confident. In contrast to others, who only show this self-confidence on the outside, but are insecure on the inside, our self-confidence is not an act, but real. Our conversation and business partners also notice this and are often impressed by it.

However, we also try to make sure that our secure appearance does not intimidate less secure people, as negative emotions such as envy, resentment or even anger can quickly arise from such feelings of inferiority. Instead, we also try to use our secure position to make others look positive and strong as well. We do not need to make ourselves bigger than we are. We are therefore happy to help others who are more likely to doubt or be insecure on their own.

Dare something

Acquaintances who have known me for a long time often describe me as a courageous person who is not afraid to take risks in order to realize goals and wishes. For an exciting life or success, I am also willing to dare things that others often fearfully shy away from.

This courage has impressed many other people. On the other hand, I also know that this courage is not always rewarded. But I also know that only those who dare to do something will be rewarded. I live by that and that is one of my strengths. Because in certain situations, it becomes apparent who is willing to take one more step or go the extra mile and then perhaps win everything – or live with the risk of possibly losing a lot. As a result, I experience many exciting situations and receive very valuable impulses. That’s why this is also attributed to me as another real core competence.

In addition, however, I also try to exchange ideas with others who perhaps deal with risks in a completely different way than I do. On the one hand, this gives me the opportunity to convince others that some risks are well worth tackling. In this way, I try to get these people on board as well, and thus increase their chances of success. On the other hand, I also learn from these people by getting an even better sense of the risk/reward ratio in my work.
