    Orientierung im Management
    DIE/WULFF/STRATEGIE - Orientierung im Management

    Mein Name ist Jürgen Wulff. Ich bin Coach und Vortragsredner und halte Seminare und Workshops. Aus Leidenschaft und Überzeugung.

    Meine Karriere habe ich als Diplom-Informatiker begonnen. Daher schätze ich logische und durchdachte Prozesse sowie komplexe Herausforderungen. Ich habe jedoch früh erkennen dürfen, dass Prozesse nur so gut sein können, wie die Menschen und Potentiale, die hinter ihnen stehen. Ausbildungen als Coach, NLP-Lehrtrainer sowie als psychotherapeutischer Heilpraktiker waren die logische Konsequenz, um meine Beratertätigkeit auf ein solides theoretisches Fundament zu stellen. Mein Beratungsschwerpunkt – Kompetenzen, Führen und Prozesse – ist also über die Jahre gewachsen und profitiert von meiner eigenen Erfahrung als Mitarbeiter und Führungskraft sowie den umfangreichen Einblicken, die mir Kunden in Ihre Unternehmen gewähren.

    Vielleicht noch einige Worte dazu, was meine Arbeit ausmacht: Auch wenn ich mit meinen Kunden zielorientiert arbeite, verfolge ich eine ganzheitliche Herangehensweise, d.h. ich betrachte das große Ganze, die Zusammenhänge und Verflechtungen. Gleichzeitig basiert meine Arbeit auf fundiertem Wissen, strategischer Lösungsfindung, Intuition und Erfahrung sowie auf Optimismus und der Freude daran, Menschen und Organisationen in ihrer Weiterentwicklung und beim Erreichen von Zielen begleiten zu dürfen.

    Hier bei Udemy gebe ich Orientierung in den Bereichen Selbstmanagement, Kompetenzen und Lernen.
