"THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX and just do things differently or THE WAY YOU LIKE IT. Usually you not only enjoy this way of working but you are also quite successful."
And if on some occasion this does not work, well...
"It's not the success that brings us forward, but the disasters".
When meeting Christine in sports or salsa dancing in the evenings, one would not immediately expect that the mother of two children has built-up and successfully leads a company with 30 employees and has become a market leader. She actively coaches executives in terms of efficiency, furthers talents, globally connects the best top assistants, assists in career planning, has written a book titled "Free time for managers!" and is engaged as Board Member. All of this is only possible with a great team, effective communication, a bit of improvisation, stress management and a touch of humor.
She shares the ingredients to this recipe for success through informative and entertaining presentations, as well as individual coaching sessions, worldwide, on land and at sea, in person and virtually.
