Cornelia sees herself as a systemic bridge-builder between customer, strategy and organisation in the corporate context. She helps align customer expectations with the strategic goals of the company and the individual needs of the employees. As a consultant and executive coach for change management and transformation, her personal motivation is to holistically accompany companies in the upcoming change towards sustainable, future-proof organisations.
Her 25+ years of broad business and leadership experiences enable her to address particularly this cross-functional role of sustainability in practice: she learned how to build consistent customer-centric businesses in international brand management at Procter & Gamble and Wella; she initiated strategic business development as a consultant for financial institutions at McKinsey; and enabling organisations and employees in change processes has always been a focus of her work as an independent organisational and HR consultant, especially for SMEs.
Cornelia holds a double masters degree in Business Administration from ESB Reutlingen and ICADE Madrid, as well as the Certificate in Business Sustainability Management from the University of Cambridge and is an official HRMgreen auditor for sustainable HR management.
“Yuval Noah Harari summarised it very appropriately in my view: “In order to keep up with the world of 2050, you will need not merely to invent ideas and products but above all to reinvent yourself again and again.” In my opinion, a consistent sustainability-orientation is precisely what drives companies to remain innovative and thus successful, and at the same time gives purpose to the people involved to constantly readjust themselves and their organisations and to grow in every respect to meet future challenges. The footprint I leave to the world and to my children should not be measurable in CO2, but in how far I have been able to help companies and people on this path of change described by Harari”
