"After a certain age you can't change anymore."
That's what someone said to me at a recent high school graduation anniversary. Someone I finished school with and is now in a leadership position in the chemical sector…a very seasoned leader with lots of experience.
So - I got curious I...
Phew - it's been a busy few weeks - hence my blog was a bit more quiet than usual.
Work kept me on my toes, the sudden weather changes from hot to cold and back created extra tiredness in my body and taking care of some of my mum's stuff who is in her 80s came just on top of it.
When I was a leader in the corporate world, most people assumed that I must be very self-confident.
To the outside world, I was always strong, I was assertive & it looked like nothing could faze me, and I had all the answers.
On the inside that looked very different.
I was often insecure,...
When I first heard the term radical responsibility - for ourselves - I squirmed a bit inside.
Does that mean I can’t blame others and the circumstances for how I feel?
Don’t get me wrong…I’m also being influenced by the “good” or...
Today I had a session with a client I've seen for the second time.
We delved into her challenge of how she could get where she absolutely wants to be (which is a particular position in academia) - an idea she had for years!

Many women are too polite in business.
In fact - often in other areas of their life too.
And if you're happen to be a man and felt this little pang when you read the headline this might be something for you too...and I invite you to read on.
Politeness is great - unless it...
Often they are even labelled as "unprofessional".
Being able to deal with our...
If you're one of the people who have been following me for a while you might have thought "Huh, I'd actually love to work with Claudia" but - what offer could be the right one for me?
Well, I'll make the decision a bit easier for you while presenting you with the options - after reading you...
In my last blog I wrote about the year-end-rush and the number one (rather counterintuitive ) tip of how to deal with it differently. What I wrote is still true - while talking to my clients though I realized that it supports even more to have a list of various hands-on ways or measures to...
Hard to believe...we're only 8 weeks away from the end of the year! Probably a super busy time for you:
- Projects to complete.
- Budgets to spend.
- Plans to be made for next year...let alone organizing Christmas and family visits.
I know that most people will push learning/changing etc out to...
