René is based near Mannheim and operates as one of Unlimited Potential’s international coaches. He is fluent in both German and English.
René is experienced in executive-level coaching for business leaders. Beside business administration he has studied psychology at the University of Mannheim, which has helped him in later years to understand his clients´ needs and support them to reach their highest potential.
The theories underpinning René’s work cannot be reduced to individual methods or a single school of thought. His approach is integrative, and includes elements of Gestalt Therapy, Transactional Analysis, as well as concepts of systemic therapy and concepts of organizational theory. On a practical level, he places emphasis on self-evaluation: analysing one’s own emotional experience, paying attention to verbal and non-verbal cues, and so on, all with a view to becoming a more self-aware and effective leader.
