Leadership coach, management trainer & business mediatorKerstenStaat

„My profession is my passion!”

I’m Kersten Staat, leadership coach, management trainer and mediator with all my heart. I have never seen career detours or bumps in life’s road as hindrances. These unexpected turns have only ever increased my sense of direction and sharpened my focus on the topics I truly care about:

360-degree management consulting and leadership!

I speak German, English and northern German straight talk, and boast 25 years of experience as a self-employed trainer and coach. With a broad spectrum of training and coaching tools at my disposal, and with a credo rooted in practical applicability, I can provide you with consulting services perfectly tailored to your needs.

I focus both on people and on the organisations in which they work – an approach that I consider imperative.

I want to move at full sail, not languish in the doldrums. I guide leaders and teams through real challenges, emboldening them to face these head on.

You present your questions. I then set about designing the solutions. Solutions as individual as you are. Form follows function – a concept by which I ensure that my solutions for you, your team and your company are as good a fit as possible.

German or in English? As you like!
Analogue or digital? Whichever you prefer!

Take a look around and decide for yourself whether I am the right person for you. We’ll then take the first step together.
