I am an Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Leadership Development Research at the ESMT - European School of Management and Technology in Berlin, Germany.

I work at a dynamic business school created by the leading global corporations with European roots. My classroom experience informs my intellectual efforts, and the results of the latter are brought back into my teaching to be tested by demanding participants who face difficult tasks of leading people in these demanding times.

This book gives a good impression of my current research and practice interests.

This groundbreaking book takes an unusually objective look at the realities of executive coaching from the coach's point of view.
