Hi there, come in!

Discover new horizons

This is a space for keeping in touch with friends and colleagues who would like to be in the loop on how my new life is evolving. When I announced back in November 2019 that I was quitting my corporate job to go on an adventure, I was overwhelmed by the many encouraging replies, the curious questions and the kudos I received.

I hope that by sharing some of my story, my thoughts and experiences here that I can inspire you to ask questions, to make one confident step at a time and to wonder what comes next. We all have to find our own paths but there are many of us, so let’s do this together.

Usually experiences I have had in English tend to be written in English and stories I want to make available to a broader audience, too. All else is German which is my mother tongue.

It is “the way we do […]

Closing the culture gap – Part 1

Have you ever noticed a “culture gap”? This was my working title for how what it feels like if what you experience in a company as an employee does not quite fit to what’s written on the corporate website. I was intrigued if this phenomenon is really a thing and if so, how it comes about and how to deal with it from an organisational perspective. Seasoned organisational development proferssional and like-minded spirit Claudia Salowski helped me to look into the topic in a series of articles, starting here.
