Empowerment through coaching and problem-solving logicRegardless of whether we are talking about business challenges or about global governance problems like for example climate protection: In order to have a rational discussion and for developing good solutions, we need a suitable methodology for description and analysis of complex problems. Unfortunately we have not learned anything like that in school.
I'm developing a set of methods of agile problem-solving logic which are based to a large part on applying the “logical thinking process” of the Theory of Constraints. This problem-solving logic allows to decompose complex problem systems into simpler parts which can be addressed intuitively, with support from coaching.
In practice however, normally coaching is the starting point. Typically coaching allows to achieve quite impressive and very quick improvements for many challenges already without using any kind of formal logic. I will propose the use of explicit logic only in complex situations where the application of problem-solving logic will result in palpable simplification.
Business CoachingI work with people who have business challenges. For example I'm passionate about working with entrepreneurs who want business success and who at the same time lead a changemaking initiative. I'm also passionate about working with potential entrepreneurs who are at the stage of considering to possibly start a business of their own.
In coaching, I guide my clients mainly through asking questions in a process of reflection, and setting goals, and taking action to achieve those goals, and personal growth. An important element of this is in following up with the coachee in regard to the actions they had decided to take.
If you're facing a complex set of challenges which might require applying the methods of agile problem-solving logic, business coaching is also a good way for addressing such challenges.
Business coaching can be one-on-one or with a group. In the latter case, it will likely be part of a special event.
One-on-one coaching is usually conducted by means of three coaching sessions per month, either through in-person meetings or via electronic means of communication:
- Regular in-person meetings are possible in the cities of Zurich and Jona-Rapperswil and everywhere in between including in particular the towns of Uster and Wetzikon and the surrounding villages.
- One-on-one coaching also works well via electronic means of communication. You need Internet access and a laptop or larger computer monitor (which we will use to display the “logic trees” of problem-solving logic via the Internet) and a means of voice communication (this can be via telephone, or if your computer is equipped with a headset, that can also be done via the Internet.)
