Overview

professional experience

leadership experience
My management experience is significantly shaped by my 16 years of work in a women's advice centre, which initially saw itself as a collectively managed company. Later on, we divided the management team into different areas; among other things, I was responsible for HR and finances of the organisation.

As one of my leadership strengths, it became clear to me and others that I was able to create prudently a framework for processes that could integrate opposing viewpoints. Again and again, I led those involved back to the question of what will take us forward as an organization.

In addition, I can share power well and act on an eye level, which is also an important precondition for real dual leadership. As an expert in coaching dual leaders, I can make good use of these experiences. In the leadership role I also learned to accept that necessary decisions sometimes mean hard consequences and drawing boundaries.

I experienced important aspects of what today is called "agile leadership" as "collective leadership" and helped to develop it myself. In my long experience, such models are very successful when a supporting structure and communication is established without power struggles.

philosophy
I work with a psychodynamic-systemic approach, i.e. I look at the human being in his network of relationships and take into account the arising interactions between the individual human being and the organization or system. In addition to the consciously perceptible level of the situation, the visible, the seemingly rational, I also include the unconscious level in my work.

These new ways of seeing and behaving create new scope for action. On this way into the unknown, it is important to ensure already existing strength and abilities. So my work is clearly resource-oriented.

Offer

offer
My work includes 1 / COACHING, 2 / ORGANISATIONAL DEVELOPMENT and 3 / SUPERVISION based on a wide range of methods. From this rich fund I create my consulting offer customized for you.


1 / COACHING is the right thing for you,

● if you want to develop an individual approach that suits you. In coaching, I am responsible for the design of a creative and goal-oriented process: Here you can clarify and strengthen yourself and, with my help, develop results on your own responsibility. The classic form of coaching is individual coaching in a confidential four-eye conversation. Contact by telephone or e-mail can also be useful in certain situations. Intensive coaching in small groups with similar issues, for example success circles or team coaching, enables mutual support and the consensual finding of solutions.

TOPICS: constructive conflict management / career decisions / change situations / leadership / self-control / performance and balance / communicative and social competence


2 / ORGANISATIONAL DEVELOPMENT is the right thing for you,

● if you are planning change processes and want to take the expected reservations of your employees into account,
● when the fronts harden in conflicts and the day-to-day business of a company is overburdened,
● if your team is constantly arguing and its performance is insufficient,
● if you want to work as a double leader to proactively shape your collaboration and bring the potential of your constellation to bear,
● if you are a young company and need advice on the feasibility of business ideas, business plan, organisation, management, accounting and marketing, both before and after founding,
● when outplacement means that even deserving employees have to leave the company.

TOPICS: change processes / change management / dealing with conflicts / team development / double leadership / start-ups / potential consulting / outplacement / strengthening health


3 / SUPERVISION is right for you,

● if you want to reflect your professional actions with a qualified counterpart in a leadership position, as a specialist or manager or as a team. Supervision supports you in finding solutions to problems, in remaining capable of acting in everyday life, in shaping sustainable professional relationships and in gaining access to your own strengths and ressources. In contrast to coaching, which is thematically and temporally limited, supervision is designed as a continuous accompaniment.
target audience
● medium-sized businesses & self-employed
● decision makers
● managing Directors
● double leaders
● female managers
● junior executives
● professionals in reorientation processes
● relatives of expatriates
methods
In my work, you benefit from my broad spectrum of methods, which are applied according to your needs and the requirements of the situation.

● NON-DIRECTIVE CONSULTATION: Going back to Carl Rogers, it is primarily characterized by the appreciative perception of the counterpart, his feelings, physical sensations, thoughts and possibly his contradictions and ambivalences.

● SYSTEMIC APPROACH: Man is seen as part of larger, interdependent systems such as departments, organisations, families etc., which influence each other.

● PSYCHODYNAMICAL APPROACH: It primarily deals with unconscious dynamics of people in organisations and their interactions.

● GESTALT PSYCHOLOGY: This focuses on the emergence of orders in the perception, thinking, feeling and behaviour of people. Perception is seen as a holistic process by which a person structures his environment for himself.

● SOLUTION-ORIENTED SHORT COACHING: Some situations require short-term clarification or decision and can be clearly outlined. Therefore I offer you a one-hour short coaching in which we get to the point within one session and plan your next goal-oriented steps.

● PSYCHODRAMA: I like to use this method, which goes back to Jakob L. Moreno, for more complex situations, conflicts and change processes. With this special form of role play concrete situations can be handled very well.

● AGILE METHODS: Especially in reorientation processes I use e.g. prototyping.
process
1 / PRE-INTERVIEW: At the beginning of our work we get to know each other free of charge and without obligation and discuss your ideas or those of the client. Then we agree on the further procedure and I estimate the expected duration of the consulting process. We define the structure and conditions: duration and frequency of meetings, location, costs, etc. Furthermore, I clarify possible funding possibilities for you.

2 / AGREEMENT ON OBJECTIVES: We set the objectives in such a way that the success is measurable at the end of the process. If you come at the initiative of your superiors, there may also be a three-way meeting to clarify mutual expectations.

3 / WORKING PHASE: We start with a profound analysis of your situation. In the second step we work out alternative ways of acting and personal attitudes, which are tried out, modified and tested in practice. In this phase you also deal with what could hinder you and what supports you. We may adjust the original goals after joint reflection and decision. At the end of each session, we bundle insights and transfer them effectively into your everyday life.

4 / EVALUATION: The evaluation of the achievements concludes the coaching process in a final meeting.

5 / CONSIDERATION & EVALUATION OF DEVELOPMENT: If you wish, a follow-up meeting and the evaluation of the development can follow after half a year or a year.

GENERAL CONDITIONS:
● Duration of coaching session: usually 1-2 hours, if required also half or full day on the job, under certain conditions individual sessions also by telephone
● Number of meetings: depending on topics and objectives 1-10 meetings, in longer processes more often
● short coaching sessions by telephone: if required between sessions

● "STRUCTURED & GOAL-ORIENTED"
J. I., sales manager of an international trading company, 160 employees

CONSULTANCY FIELDS: Moderation of conferences and conflict discussions, coaching for specialists and executives, advice on leadership, conflict management and cultural change

"Ms. Fildhaut successfully brings her psychological knowledge as well as her understanding of structures and organizations to the work. Her approach is highly structured, goal-oriented and the needs of the individual employee are taken into account to the same extent as those of the company. In a very short time, her appearance and working methods have created an atmosphere of trust and respect among our colleagues, in which individual solutions have been developed together. We thank Ms. Fildhaut for her successful performance. We would like to engage her again at any time and would gladly recommend her to others".


● "ANALYTICAL SHARPNESS, EXPERTISE & VISION FOR THE FEASIBLE"
P. K., managing director of a cultural institution, 42 employees

CONSULTANCY FIELDS: Coaching and consulting of the managing director: organizational development, analysis and optimization of management tasks, feedback from superiors, employee satisfaction analysis

"Ms Fildhaut accompanies the processes with great empathy, analytical sharpness, expertise and an eye for what is feasible. Her approach is very structured; the scarce time resources are well used. She is always in a position to get involved with different people and their views of problem contexts without losing sight of the results orientation. Her human warmth allows her access to employees of different levels of responsibility, which is basically characterized by a positive approach. We would like to thank Ms. Fildhaut for the committed and professional handling of the assignment and her successful performance. She was always a reliable counterpart. We are happy to recommend Ms. Fildhaut to others!


● "GOAL-ORIENTED & TRANSPARENT"
J. S., Managing Director of the subsidiary of a paper and packaging group, 5 employees

CONSULTANCY FIELD: conflict consulting

"Mrs. Fildhaut proceeded in a very goal-oriented manner; the procedure was always transparent to those involved. I equally appreciate her analytical acumen, her psychological expertise and her knowledge of structural relationships. Due to her human warmth and humour, Ms. Fildhaut succeeds in creating an atmosphere of trust and respect, in which she develops individual solutions together with the people involved and contributes to overcoming the difficult phase of implementation. We would like to thank Ms. Fildhaut for her successful work, are happy to recommend her to others and will commission her again if necessary".


"WITH GREAT RESPECT & IN A TRUSTING ATMOSPHERE"
P.G., designer

CONSULTANCY FIELDS: Coaching with the aim of self-employment; finding out the core competence, business concept

"What has been good for me in the coaching process, that personal issues were integrated without losing sight of the professional goal. With great respect and in an atmosphere of trust, Ms. Fildhaut gave me a positive view of the process and my personal weaknesses, which gave me a lot of self-confidence in my professional appearance. The working method was very effective. Through the coaching I was able to work out my individual strengths, so today I am lucky enough to sell my comic/cartoon illustrations to publishers, advertising and e-learning agencies. I am happy to recommend Ms. Fildhaut as a competent and empathetic consultant".


● "EMPATHY & VERY PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT"
G.H., editor

"In my lengthy decision process to give up my well-paid but energizing position as an employee in the PR industry in favor of self-employment, Mrs. Fildhaut was a decisive support for me. With great patience, attention and understanding for my back and forth she accompanied me and encouraged me again and again to take the steps at my own pace. When the time finally came and I had founded my editorial office, I have never regretted it for a single day in 18 months. Birgitta Fildhaut's special quality lies in the interplay of psychological sensitivity and empathy and the highly competent support she provides in all phases of setting up and running a company. Whether financial or strategic issues, sagging or bold ideas: She is always open to all concerns and helps quickly and competently. I would like to thank Ms. Fildhaut very much for clarifying my goals with me and guiding me on the way to achieving them. I highly recommend her."
