Why sparring? And why VUCA Sparring?
What should be part of the regularities of top executives and decision makers? Regular reflection! According to Wolfgang Looss, author of “In Private,” sparring is synonymous with “reflection partnerships for people who don’t have a currently defined problem at all.”
Sparring, then, is “issue-free.”
Indeed! In a context that is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous – in other words, VUCA – where the distinction between right and wrong is relativized by a both/and, where linearity and causality are replaced by chaos, there are sufficient occasions for problem solving and its reflection every day. Often the right impulse brings more than time- and cost-intensive efforts to find the right solution alone!
As a VUCA expert who has been working on this topic for many years (among other things, she launched the first compact qualification as a VUKA Facilitator®) and who focuses on positively dealing with the effects of the phenomena of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity, I offer an individual, protected space for this. You get the opportunity to talk openly, to address and reflect on sensitive issues. As an expert in the process and new tools and perspectives under VUCA conditions, I will help you to reflect!
“Sapere aude – Dare to be wise!”
I take my cue from Kant, who declared, “Have the courage to use your own mind!”
VUCA Sparring gives you the opportunity for self-reflection and personal positioning. You develop yourself personally as well as your company or organization in a targeted manner. You rethink things, develop ideas and strategies and learn new approaches and tools for the appropriate navigation through volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. I accompany you systematically and with relevance on your way to your entrepreneurial goals.
You will gain speed, time and energy and activate your very own “best thinking” and approaches for shaping a value-creating future.
With me you get a former executive, business development manager, supervisory board member of a former listed company, organizational consultant, coach, facilitator and VUCA expert. I also enjoy listening and understanding and give “Why not?” a greater chance than “Yes, but …”. My motto is, “Fortunately, it’s only VUCA!” because, as the saying goes, you and I wouldn’t be at this point in our lives if we hadn’t done a whole lot right. To keep it that way, I look forward to hearing from you!

I support executives and decision-makers professionally and personally!
Where do you exchange ideas on topics that are really close to your heart?
It is always astonishing that people in private contexts are able to find ways out and suitable solutions under the most difficult conditions and in some cases grow beyond themselves.
These parts are therefore inherent in the personality and can be called upon. All the more it should be the case that these abilities and potentials are (can be) also brought into the implementation of professional roles in an organization, a company, and do not get stuck somewhere at a company gate.
This would at least correspond to the wish of top executives and decision-makers.
I am firmly convinced that people and organizations are capable of a great deal, if only they are allowed and given the trust that, under the right conditions, undreamed-of possibilities, resources and potentials are available. When the needs of people, teams and companies are given space and the freedom to take on clarified responsibility, to make their own decisions, to take responsibility for the consequences, and when buzzwords such as “culture of trust” and “lifelong learning” are given a real chance to have an impact.
From my point of view and many years of experience from many different roles, in an organization as well as accompanying an organization, and from a wide variety of perspectives, these are essential success factors in order to be able to maintain orientation in a VUCA world and under the necessity of digitalization and transformation.
