Sonja Thiemann
My corporate consultancy work is based on over twenty years’ professional experience, fifteen of which were in management roles in national and international business schools, offering advice on the development and implementation of action plans around personal and organisational development. With long-term network partners and sector-specific experts and using scientifically tested methods, I identify hidden and untapped potential to develop solutions and innovations. The key to success lies in improving collaboration and cooperation between departments and hierarchies.

Where blockages, stagnation or adverse dynamics have resulted in situations in which corrosive energy is prevalent, I get people and systems moving again in a positive way. I capitalise on an organisation’s capacity to heal itself and work consistently with existing potential. It is my firm belief that the potential to resolve issues already exists. My work focuses on identifying and utilising this potential.

The two fascinating days I spent on a seminar given by Ms Thiemann gave a real boost to my personal development. Her supportive and inspirational manner meant that delegates were able to explore areas for their development openly and constructively.
The various practical exercises in the seminar were extremely helpful for application in everyday work situations.
I now have a better understanding of the different ways of thinking and working of people in my team, while in meetings I am able to work towards us achieving our objectives together in a more targeted way.

Even one year on, there are often times when I’m aware that yet again the seminar has been of benefit to me. Michaela Petry
